Expert 
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
 Philip Rivers has heavily utilized running backs in the passing game for the entirety of his career. Nyheim Hines will fill the third-down role for Indianapolis and he has 107 catches over the past two seasons. The Colts likely won't be getting to third down too often as their offense should be efficient, and they won't be trailing in many games, but you can count on Frank Reich to find ways to get Hines involved.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
 The pass-catching specialist has brought in 107 receptions through his first two seasons in the league, and the Colts' coaching staff is reportedly planning to utilize his skillset as a receiver this season. The arrival of Jonathan Taylor crowds the backfield, but there's a good chance Hines still has a role on third down or in hurry-up situations, making him a viable late-round target in PPR formats.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Johnson has seen his fantasy stock take a huge hit since April. The Lions have now added AP and D'Andre Swift to this backfield, which screams that they plan on utilizing a full-on committee approach. It's hard to see how Johnson is fantasy relevant at any point this season, unless D'Andre Swift were to miss the first couple games of the season. This may just be a backfield that you want to avoid altogether.Hines is a fantastic receiver out of the backfield, but with both Marlon Mack and Jonathan Taylor ahead of him on the depth chart, he's unlikely to see many carries on the ground. This means he could be a valuable FLEX option in Full PPR leagues, but he's going to lose production in any other format.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Poor Johnson cannot catch a break. After battling injuries throughout his young career, the Lions drafted D'Andre Swift this offseason, which put Johnson as only borderline relevant in fantasy circles. With Swift battling injury as the Lions approached the season, however, it looked like Johnson would at least have an impact role early in the year, with the chance to carve out a larger role even when Swift was healthy. But now, with the Lions signing Adrian Peterson, Johnson again has impediments to fantasy-relevance. Johnson is talented and could succeed in the right situation, but given all the roadblocks in front of him, he's best left as a bench stash in deeper leagues. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We all know Johnson's struggled to stay on the field over his first two seasons, and it led the Lions to draft D'Andre Swift at the top of the second round. You don't draft a running back at the top of the second round to not use him. Johnson's skillset clashes with that of Swift, so it's unlikely he sees more than 8-10 touches per game, especially now that Adrian Peterson's in the mix.There are some who are pointing at Hines as the primary beneficiary to Philip Rivers' arrival in Indianapolis, but I'm not one of them. Did we forget that the Colts dealt with tons of injuries last year and Hines still wound up with just 96 touches on the year? This is still the same coaching staff who didn't put him on the field over a guy like Jonathan Williams. Now you add in Jonathan Taylor and Michael Pittman, and he's going to get a bigger role? Nah. Let someone else draft him.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
With Johnson having missed 14 of 32 games with multiple knee injuries over his two NFL seasons, he's a poor bet to get a heavy workload in 2020. Detroit's preference to rotate backs will likely result in Johnson being part of a committee in 2020. 
John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
 The only scramble Philip Rivers has must be eggs, because it's not on the football field. His lack of mobility has annually led to a high target total to his running backs. Jonathan Taylor will be taking over the lead rusher role sooner rather than later and Marlon Mack is a sub-par receiving back, leaving Nyheim Hines as a late-round gem in drafts this season.
Dalton Kates
APEX Fantasy Leagues
Still only 23 years old and coming of an inefficient season. Was wildly efficient as a 21 y/o rookie. A good player who has three down potential, but the biggest obstacle is stud RB prospect and 35th overall pick D'Andre Swift who should end up becoming the lead guy here. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
When Kerryon Johnson is on the field, he's dynamic and for the most part fantasy gold. Unfortunately, he's rarely on the field due to injuries. Now the Lions spent a 2nd round pick D'Andre Swift who figures to get a hefty amount of work as well. I'd avoid Johnson this year and target the rookie SwiftHines once again finds himself in one of the most confusing backfields in all of football. There is Marlon Mack and 2nd-round rookie Jonathan Taylor to compete with which will not be an easy task. On the plus side, his new QB, Philip Rivers, loves throwing to his RB's. If RIvers and Hines build a connection early, Hines could be a major steal in PPR formats.

The Fantasy First Down
Kerryon Johnson came into 2019 with a massive amount of hype and disappointed a lot of fantasy owners. With just one game over 50 yards rushing, he injured himself in Week 7 and only returned in the last couple of weeks to do very little. He now shares the backfield with the far-more-talented D'Andre Swift and will likely fall into a backup role alongside Bo Scarborough, Ty Johnson and a dozen other Lions RB disappointments by the halfway point of the season. He's a hard pass for me.After the high of Philip Rivers signing with the Colts, Nyheim Hines has crumbled back to earth with the Jonathan Taylor signing. Taylor is a good pass catcher and will certainly chip into the receptions for Hines and surely reduce his carries too. He goes from a PPR flex option to no more than a speculative gamble/bench fodder.

Huge Draft Day faller. Swift is better, and KJ is nothing more than a complement at this point.Was set to be a huge riser w/ Philip Rivers, who peppers his RBs in the passing game... but J.Taylor may hinder this, esp if he pushes Mack to the 3rd-down RB role

If he could ever finish a season he's been on pace for 200+ carries and at least each 30 targets the last 2 years. Just needs to survive the draft.
