Nyheim Hines to be very much so integrated into Colts offense this season

In regards to Colts RB Nyheim Hines, head coach Frank Reich told reporters that it wouldn’t surprise him “if there’s a game this season that Nyheim Hines has 10 catches.”

Fantasy Impact

Reich has a knack for integrating pass-catching backs into his offense. Look no further than his time in Philadelphia with Darren Sproles and his time in San Diego working with Danny Woodhead. Even with the addition of Jonathan Taylor, it sounds like Hines will have some fantasy value, especially in PPR leagues. It’s certainly possible that Philip Rivers utilizes Hines similar to how he utilized Austin Ekeler with the Chargers. Ekeler caught 92 balls last season in Los Angeles, and Hines has a combined 107 receptions in his two-year career. Look for Hines to be active in the passing game this season, and consider drafting him as an RB4 or RB5 in half and full PPR leagues.

Nyheim Hines could get 'plenty more action' on offense this season

Zak Keefer of The Athletic writes Nyheim Hines could see "plenty more action" on offense this season.

Fantasy Impact

Hines played on just 31.5% of the snaps last year as the Colts were extremely conservative with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback. That figures to change now that Philip Rivers is in town. It's worth noting that Rivers consistently peppered Austin Ekeler with targets out of the backfield. Hines is therefore a name to remember in PPR formats come draft season.

Nyheim Hines catches three passes out of the backfield

Nyheim Hines rushed for 34 yards on seven carries along with three catches for 22 yards on five targets Sunday in the Colts’ Week 17 loss to the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

Hines did not have the breakout in 2019 many were expecting as the second year running back shared time with Marlon Mack and Jordan Wilkins. Hines is worth owning in deeper PPR formats finishing with 44 catches for 320 yards.

Nyheim Hines runs back two punt returns for TDs

Nyheim Hines rushed one time for four yards and caught one pass for two yards while he also returned two punts for touchdowns in Indianapolis' Week 16 win over the Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Hines only received two touches on offense but made a huge impact with his special teams play. Hines became just the fifth player in NFL history with two punt return touchdowns of 70-yards or longer in a single game. Unfortunately, he won't provide that on most weeks and does not get enough touches to be worth starting in fantasy.

Nyheim Hines sees limited action in loss on Monday

Nyheim Hines rushed two times for 10 yards and caught both of his targets for two yards in the Colts' Week 15 loss to the Saints.

Fantasy Impact

The Colts offense struggled all night and Hines saw just the four touches. With Marlon Mack on the field, Hines is only worth owning in fantasy as a handcuff to the often injured back.
