While Nyheim Hines finished as the RB20 last season, anyone who rostered him in fantasy football knows that he was not exactly the most consistent option week in and week out. Jonathan Taylor should shoulder the majority of the workload for this offense, while Hines sprinkles in behind him and rotates with Marlon Mack. Frank Reich should still continue to utilize multiple RBs in this backfield, but Hines' workload most likely will not be enough to lead to anything more than low-end RB3 weekly production. My Very Early Projection: 49-222-1 rushing & 46-347-2 receiving.

He finished as the RB20 in half PPR formats last year. Crazy, right? While that's firm RB2 territory, he finished as an RB2 or better in just 43.8 percent of his games, tied with Chase Edmonds. He clearly has a role in this offense, though it's a bit reliant on gamescript, as Jonathan Taylor is the clear early-down back, while Hines is the preferred back in passing situations. If they give Taylor more work in the passing game this year, it's coming at the expense of Hines, and knowing Taylor's ADP, drafters expect that increase for Taylor. Even going back to 2019, Hines was an RB3 or better just 43.8 percent of the time, which is more in line for how you should feel about him in 2021. He's just an emergency flex option.
