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.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Harris will begin the year on injured reserve after having hand surgery, putting a dent in what was shaping up to potentially be a breakout season. There's still some long-term appeal with the young running back, but there's no reason to draft him as anything other than a deep bench stash with the hope of a breakout mid-year. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
It's hard to believe Damien Harris out-carried Josh Jacobs in 2018 with the Crimson Tide. In his first season with the Patriots he was out-gained by Tom Brady, Brandon Bolden, Julian Edelman and N'Keal Harry. It might seem bizarre but Harris isn't a special teams guy whereas Rex Burkhead a vital role there. Essentially, Harris needs an injury or a surprise RB release to gain a role this season. At this stage that seems unlikely enough to suggest Damien Harris shouldn't be on any redraft rosters, there's such a low chance he provides any payoff, especially given he starts the season on IR.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.
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.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
Recently had surgery on his pinky, and his Week 1 is now in question. Slightly down. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Harris has been gaining some buzz recently, but until the Pats move on from Sony Michel, I don't see him receiving the amount of touches necessary for fantasy production. This is going to be an incredibly crowded backfield and it might just be one that I'm fine letting someone else in my league try to navigate. If Michel starts the season healthy, Harris could even end up back as a healthy scratch on this roster...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.
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.
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
*Update* The talk of training camp. Flashing as runner AND receiver. Makes this offense much more dynamic than Sony if he keeps this up.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
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The 2019 usage, or lack thereof, for Harris was puzzling to say the least. When you draft a running back in the third round, you typically use him in some sort of role. Of the 22 running backs who've been drafted in the third round over the last seven years, Harris' four touches were the fewest. He's the clear-cut handcuff to Sony Michel who's been extremely inefficient. If that continues in 2020, we could see the Patriots activate Harris (who doesn't contribute on special teams) and use him as their early-down back.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
As of now, Harris can only be considered as a handcuff to Sony Michel who was largely inconsistent and inefficient in 2019. With reports of Harris standing out in practice, it wouldn't shock me if he took Michel's early-down role if last year's issues continue into 2020. He doesn't need to be drafted but is definitely someone to keep an eye on early in the season.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.
