Colts See Larger Role For Nyheim Hines

Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines was a big loser this offseason on the surface. The team drafted Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor in the second round, and with Marlon Mack still around, Hines was seemingly relegated to a third-string role. But the team actually expects Hines to get more usage now that Philip Rivers is the team's quarterback, as Rivers has been one of the NFL's best at getting back involved in the passing game, and Hines has the speed and footwork to be a good receiving back. Offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni suggests that Hines is in for a big year. Does that mean you should rush out to buy him in dynasty leagues and overdraft him in re-draft? No. He's still going to cede lots of snaps to Taylor and Mack, and while Hines has upside as a late round fantasy pick and the team is definitely saying all the right things, it's hard to see him getting too many more looks this year, and his expanded use in the pass game might come at the cost of his use in the running game.

Nyheim Hines Could Be More Involved In Offense

Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines is expected to get "plenty more action" in the offense this season, in the opinion of The Athletic's Zak Keefer. And that could translate into much more fantasy success with new quarterback Philip Rivers under center, a veteran signal-caller who isn't afraid to dump the ball off to his pass-catching backs. Hines, 23, ran the ball just 52 times for 199 yards and two touchdowns behind Marlon Mack in 2019, adding 44 receptions for 320 yards. Both his rushing and receiving marks were down from his rookie season in 2018 when he was playing with Andrew Luck. With an offense that should attack more under Rivers, Hines could be a nice PPR sleeper late in drafts.

Nyheim Hines Gets A Touchdown In Week 13

Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines saw a small workload in Week 13, but he was able to get into the end zone to net him a decent fantasy day. He finished with four carries for 22 yards and a touchdown while adding two catches for 18 yards. This Colts backfield wasn't able to get a ton going and they were frequently rotating their running backs during the game. With no running back able to get clear of the pack, it takes the value away from all of them in the committee approach. Hines has fleeting RB3/flex appeal in deeper PPR leagues as the primary pass-catching back.
