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.

Nyheim Hines: 'Hopefully I’ll get some more down-the-field routes'

The Indianapolis Colts opened training camp this week. The Athletic's Zak Keefer provided a boots on the ground report Wednesday. When talking with RB Nyheim Hines, the RB passed along that he focused on route-running in the offseason. Hines is optimistic his hard work will pay off via more looks in the passing game, specifically more deep shots, saying, "Hopefully I’ll get some more down-the-field routes."

Fantasy Impact

Keefer added that Hines' quote jumped out to him and that with Carson Wentz now at QB, look out for wrinkles like Hines getting more down-the-field routes in the offense. Keefer pointed out Hines is a versatile weapon and that the Colts would be wise to get him more looks at different spots on the field.
