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.

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.
