Many fantasy managers are going to turn and look at Hines as a potential bye week fill-in option here against the 49ers, but there are plenty of reasons to be concerned about playing him in fantasy this week. Hines' usage has been sporadic up to this point of the season and it's been near impossible to estimate when he's going to be given more than five touches in a game. Over the last three weeks, Hines is averaging just five opportunities per game and that's not going to be enough to get the job done for fantasy football. If you do start Hines this week, it's merely as a complete desperation play.
