Darren Collins played well in a loss to the Bucks on Wednesday, posting 14 points on 5-of-11 shooting with six rebounds, seven assists and two triples in 30 minutes.
It's nothing to write home about but that's part of Collison's understated fantasy charm. He's a mid-round play for the rest of the season. Tyreke Evans posted an uninspiring 10 points (3-of-10 shooting), three assists and three treys in 18 minutes off the bench.

Darren Collison led the Pacers in scoring on Monday with 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, six assists and a steal.
Collison has been on fire with Victor Oladipo out and you can tell by the way he plays that there's a new air of confidence about him. He drilled the dagger over Jahlil Okafor on the left baseline late in the fourth quarter with no hesitation and he's benefiting the most from the Oladipo injury. Over the past month he's averaging 12.6 points, 1.2 3s, 2.6 boards, 6.6 assists and 1.6 steals on .485 shooting which is good for nearly top-40 value in that span.

Darren Collison dropped 20 points on 8-of-14 shooting in 34 minutes of action in a 95-88 win over the Heat on Saturday.
Collison also added two 3-pointers, six assists, two rebounds and one steal to the box score. He is easily inside top-100 value on the season and has a shot to end up inside the top-75. His value has increased since Victor Oladipo went down and he should continue to trend up until the end of the season.

Darren Collison chugged along with 16 points and 10 assists on Thursday night.
Collison has had a very quietly productive season yet again, currently slotted comfortably into the top-100 of fantasy options right now. He will be shouldering a larger offensive burden as part of the Pacers collective right now as they try to cover up the loss of Victor Oladipo. The top-75 is well within reach.

Darren Collison had a tough game in Wednesday's loss, posting three points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal while shooting 1-for-7 from the field.
Collison was working on 50/40/90 shooting splits over the last little while but this was certainly not part of the program. He remains a must-own player in all leagues in the wake of Victor Oladipo's injury, so don't be dissuaded by a tough night. None of the Pacers' other players showed up tonight, with Edmond Sumner posting seven points, five assists and two steals on 2-of-7 shooting, Aaron Holiday delivering 10 points, three assists, a block and two threes on 2-of-8 shooting and Cory Joseph finishing with one point and six assists on 0-for-7 from the field. Hard pass on all of that, at least for one night.
January 28, 2019, 9:28 pmDarren Collison - G - Indiana Pacers
Darren Collison scored 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting with two triples and eight assists on Monday.
Collison's value has shot up since Victor Oladipo went down with a knee injury and it looks like his ROS value is safe within the late-middle rounds. He's got potential to rise above that as he's initiating most of the Pacers' offense and is finally starting to shoot the ball himself. The dimes and steals are a given with him so any extra scoring is icing on the cake.

Darren Collision scored 18 points on 3-of-5 shooting, nine assists, one steal, two 3-pointers and made all 10 of his free throw attempts in Saturday's loss against the Grizzlies.
Collison logged 31 minutes tonight after posting his highest minutes in 2019 with 32 in the previous game. He's got top-75 upside with Victor Oladipo out for the year and you can also try flipping him for someone with an early to mid-round value since he has enough playing time to boost his production.

Darren Collison tallied 17 points, eight assists, four boards and a steal in Wednesday's win against the Raptors.
Collison logged 32 minutes in this game, his highest total in 2019. With Victor Oladipo (knee) likely lost for the season, Collison is going to see a massive uptick in usage, and likely playing time, going forward. He's got mid-round upside for the rest of the season assuming Oladipo is done for the year.

Darren Collison dropped another productive performance on Sunday as the Pacers stung the Hornets 120-95, delivering 19 points on 8-of-14 shooting with three rebounds, nine dimes, three triples and two steals.
Collison is heating up with three double-digit scoring outings in his last five games with averages of 6.8 assists and 2.0 steals per game over that span. He's got top-80 upside and is trending up. Tyreke Evans added 14 points (6-of-10 shooting), five assists and one triple in 15 minutes off the bench.

Darren Collision tallied 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting (2-of-3 3PTS, 4-of-5 FTs) with three rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block against the Mavs.
Collison registered the least minutes(23) amongst the starters since the bench took care of the lead the team has built in the first half and never looked back. The ejection of Luka Doncic helped in securing this win as well but not to take anything from Collison's line. Currently a must-own player in all formats after starting off slow at the start of the season.

Darren Collison (sore right leg) is no longer on the injury report.
Collison had been dealing with a leg issue for about a week but ended up missing zero games, and owners can now comfortably lock him into lineups without having to check on his status every day.

Darren Collison (sore right leg) scored 15 points on 4-of-8 shooting (2-of-2 3PTs, 5-of-5 FTs) with four rebounds, seven assists and three steals over 27 minutes in Tuesday's blowout win over the Suns.
The Suns were just what the doctor ordered, apparently. Collison has shrugged off a slow start to the season and been a must-own player in standard formats.

Darren Collison (sore right leg) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Suns.
Collison's been on the injury report for nearly a week now but has yet to miss a game. He's been an early-middle round option of late, even despite the injury, so we're hoping he can keep gutting it out. Cory Joseph (also questionable) would likely start if Collison missed time but Aaron Holiday and Tyreke Evans might see the largest increases in playing time.

Despite popping up on the injury report over the last few games with a sore right leg, Darren Collison has managed to give it a go and produce for the Pacers as he did on Friday with seven points, 10 dimes, five rebounds, one steal and one block.
What a trooper. Collison is still delivering mid-round value despite being bothered by his leg. At 31 years young, wear and tear come with the territory so expect to finally be rested at some point down the road.
