Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines only got two carries against the Kansas City Chiefs, but he made up for it by leading the team in receiving yards. He finished with four catches for 46 yards, and he tied for the team lead with five targets. The team was expected to play from behind for much of the night, but, as they were working to salt away the game, they rode fellow running back Marlon Mack down the stretch. If the Colts Defense is softer moving forward, Hines could continue to see more volume.
Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines does the majority of his work in the passing game. In Week 5, he could see a workload increase for a couple of reasons. One is that starting running back Marlon Mack (ankle) is dealing with an injury that could hold him out of Sunday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. In addition to that, the Colts could be playing from behind for much of the evening which would force them to throw more. Hines is the guy that's on the field when they throw. If the Chiefs go up early, Hines would be for a huge night.
Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines has been quiet for much of the season thus far. In the Week 4 loss to the Oakland Raiders, he got involved due to the offense being behind for much of the afternoon. He had just three carries for six yards, but he had six catches for 39 yards. He had just six targets on the day, and he was the only player outside of running back Jordan Wilkins, one target, to catch all of the passes thrown in their direction. If the defense forces the offense to play from behind more moving forward, that causes Hines' value to rise.
Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines has been held mostly in check for the first couple weeks of the season. In Week 3, he has more upside than we've seen thus far. Starting running back Marlon Mack has been battling an injury all week, and the Colts will likely have to put up points to keep up with the Atlanta Falcons. If Mack is unable to go or is limited in any way, Hines earns strong flex consideration as a result. In PPR formats, he's a strong possibility.
Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines does his best work when he's catching a high volume of passes. In Week 2, against the Tennessee Titans, he was nearly invisible. He had two carries for nine yards and one catch for five yards. Hines also had to contend with running back Jordan Wilkins who had five carries on the day. Unless there is an injury to fellow running back Marlon Mack, Hines remains nothing more than a dart throw in extremely deep leagues moving forward.
In Week 1, Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines caught all four of his targets for just four yards. He also added four carries for 13 yards. In Week 2, he's nothing more than a dart throw in very deep leagues. During his rookie season, Hines' value came from his volume in the passing game with an average of 3.9 receptions per game. Against the Tennessee Titans this week, the outlook is not the brightest for him. The Titans allowed just four receptions to Cleveland Browns running backs for 24 yards. Unless you're playing in an ultra-deep league, you're avoiding Hines until he sees an uptick in his workload.
Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines had a favorable game script in Week 1 with the team playing from behind for much of their overtime loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He had four carries for 13 yards to go with four catches for four yards. During his rookie season, Hines did his damage in the receiving game. That didn't happen for him during Week 1, and he'll be looking to bounce back moving forward.
Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines was mildly inconsistent last season, but, in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Chargers, he gets a slight bump as a low-end flex play. Hines' value is mostly in PPR formats where he gets a lot of dump-off passes. Quarterback Jacoby Brissett will likely be targeting Hines a fair amount especially if they're playing from behind which is very possible against an explosive Chargers offense.
Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines was a major PPR threat last season when the team was playing from behind. With the initial 53-man roster and waiver claims completed, it's clear that he is the number two running back on this roster behind starter Marlon Mack. Hines isn't a great runner between the tackles due to his diminutive stature, but he is a solid pass catcher. The Colts will likely be playing from behind more this season which means that he should be on the field a fair bit this year. As a deep-league streamer, you could do much worse.
Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines represents a solid flex running back in PPR scoring leagues. During recent practices, he's been getting a lot of work with the return unit. He's an explosive young player, and he ran a 4.38 second 40-yard dash prior to the combine. He had 63 catches last season, and that number should be even higher this year. If he can slot into a role similar to New England Patriots running back James White, he can have a ton of upside.
Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines' role could be affected 'a little bit' by the arrival of WR Parris Campbell, according to head coach Frank Reich. 'And yeah, with Parris (Campbell) in the slot that could affect Nyheim a little bit. It would ultimately, probably affect him a little bit, but that is a good thing. We will just continue to fine tune and by game plan, I think that is one of the things that we've done well is figure that out week-to-week how to apply the personnel against the defense that we're playing,' Reich said.
Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines said he wants to reach '1,000 all-purpose yards' in 2019.
Fantasy Spin: Hines was a weapon in the passing attack last year, but he could have a hard time matching his total of 63 receptions last year after the Colts added Devin Funchess and Parris Campbell. He's only worth a speculative add late in PPR formats.
Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines' goal for the 2019 season is 1,000 yards from scrimmage. He carried the ball 85 times for 314 ards and caught 63 passes for 425 yards in his rookie season. Only T.Y. Hilton and Eric Ebron had more receptions than Hines last year, but with both Marlon Mack and Jordan Wilkins also sharing the backfield it'll be hard for Hines to come anywhere close to 1,000 all-purpose yards unless an injury occurs. He might even see fewer receptions out of the backfield now that the Colts added Devin Funchess and rookie Parris Campbell to the receiver corps. Hines averaged only 3.7 yards per carry, a full yard below the combined average of Mack and Wilkins.
