The New England Patriots re-signed WR Austin Collie.
Huddle Up: Collie just figures to be end-of-roster playoff insurance should Aaron Dobson, Kenbrell Thompkins or Danny Amendola be forced to miss time.

The New England Patriots will re-sign WR Austin Collie Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Throw Collie into the mix with Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson as a bunch of guys capable of a big game in any given week but good luck guessing when their turn comes up in the rotation.

The New England Patriots released WR Austin Collie on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
Huddle Up: As long as Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman are semi-healthy and playing, there's simply no room for Collie in N.E.

The New England Patriots signed free-agent WR Austin Collie (49ers) to an undisclosed deal.
Huddle Up: Could this be a sign that Danny Amendola isn't progressing from injury as hoped? In any case, whether it's RBs or pass-catchers, Bill Belichick loves to have a variety of chess pieces to maneuver, and this is just another option to further cloud the fantasy WR picture in New England.

San Francisco 49ers WR Austin Collie may not be in the team's plans, according to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. Branch points out that head coach Jim Harbaugh indicated during training camp that Collie had not fully recovered from a ruptured patella tendon he suffered in 2012.
Huddle Up: Collie has 4 preseason receptions for 39 yards, and with rookie Quentin Patton (team-leading 4 catches for 35 yards) and LaVelle Hawkins (105-yard kickoff return TD) stepping up in the Niners' Week 3 preseason win over the Vikings, the star-crossed wideout could find himself looking for work again.

The San Francisco 49ers have signed free-agent WR Austin Collie (Colts). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: This is an intriguing signing for fantasy owners. Collie's battle with concussions is well-documented but if he can stay healthy, Collie has a chance to shine in the 49ers' offense. San Francisco has very little at receiver after Anquan Boldin right now. Collie's an excellent route-runner who, when healthy, gives Colin Kaepernick another guy he can trust on a consistent basis. As long as Collie's ADP doesn't get out of control, he's worth a look.
