With three weeks in the books, stars are starting to emerge among NFL rosters, including a few #ProHogs who have made some noise. Here are some to keep an eye on in Week 4:
Alex Collins may have found a home. After being signed to the active roster from the Raven’s practice squad earlier in the month, no Raven has done more in the last two games than Collins. Last week in his second game with the Ravens, Collins recorded a team and career-high 82 yards on the ground on just nine carries. Just two weeks with Baltimore and the second-year back has already almost surpassed his 2016 season total in yards at Seattle.
Expect his performance from Sunday to earn him more playing time. Collins is running with confidence and it is showing. He is averaging 7.8 yards per carry through two games this season, almost four yards more than his average a season ago. He has runs of 10, 16, 16, 18 and 19, four coming in his last outing.
When it comes to ProHogs to keep an eye out for, New England linemen Trey Flowers and Deatrich Wise, Jr. have been a mainstay through the first three weeks. Flowers and Wise have combined for five of the Patriots six sacks this season and both are tied for the team lead in tackles for loss with three each. Flowers leads all Patriot defensive linemen with 13 tackles through three weeks.

Packers’ long snapper Brett Goode was released from injury reserved with an injury settlement Tuesday. Despite being released, once the 10-year veteran gets healthy, it allows the Packers to bring Goode back once he is healthy.
