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.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Dillon is a must handcuff for Jones owners, as he has monster upside if Jones' history of soft tissue injuries impacts him 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.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Some believe Dillon is going to walk in and destroy the value of someone like Aaron Jones, while others say he negates the role of Jamaal Williams. I don't know if he does either, but when a team spends a second-round pick on a running back, they typically have a plan for them. Over the last seven years, running backs drafted in the second round average 172.3 touches in their rookie season. Dillon is just an early-down back, so he'll be extremely touchdown dependent. Knowing how good Jones has been in that role, it's tough to take him off the field, so I'm fine with going the wait-and-see approach with Dillon (and every other non-Jones back in this backfield).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.
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
Even with Aaron Jones on the roster, the Packers used a 2nd-round pick on A.J. Dillon. With the Packers looking to move towards a run-heavy offense, this move isn't all that shocking but still leaves fantasy owners in a bind. I don't see Dillon having any stand-alone value in 2020 but is definitely worth cuffing to Jones if you draft him.Hines 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.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
AJ Dillon has the draft capital on his side, but it's difficult to see him seeing any significant work in year one with Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams ahead of him. This move screams Matt LaFluer wants Derrick Henry back for this offense in Green Bay, but the issue is that Dillon isn't on the same planet from a talent perspective that Henry is...It's hard to see this move panning out long-term, but he'll be given every opportunity to succeed in the years to come.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.
Kevin Wheeler
The Draft Zone
One dimensional back that scores poorly in @GrahamBarfield 's Yards Created model. Despite consistently demonstrating strength against upper body attacks, Dillon can be a simple take down in the open field. He's not terrible at changing direction or making a cut when it's a part of the plan, but in terms of pure athleticism the stiffness in his hips is on display often. @JetPackGalileo 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
What the heck were the Packers doing in the NFL draft?! Despite having the RB2 last year in Aaron Jones and a viable backup in Jamaal Williams, they ignored their WR need and drafted AJ Dillon in the second round! The stupidity of that move fell through the cracks due to the earlier Jordan Love selection but it made absolutely no sense. Now the Packers backfield is a mess and Dillon is a fantasy player's nightmare. I'm treating him as an Aaron Jones insurance policy as the lead back is in a contract year. That makes Dillon little more than a handcuff and for that reason I likely won't touch him.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.

 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
