Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Hines rushed seven times for 28 yards and one score, tacking on eight catches for 45 yards and another touchdown last week. I could see 15 touches every week with Mack going on IR. The TD's won't be consistent, but looks like I missed on Hines this year. 
Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Hines was a great waiver-wire add for Week 2, but he won't be as good this week as he was in his last time out. Hines only logged 15 touches against the Jaguars, and most of his fantasy value came from the pair of touchdowns that he scored. Hines won't keep scoring at that rate, so his value will depend on receptions and yardage. He's a decent RB2/flex option in PPR formats, but I wouldn't start him in standard-scoring leagues. 
Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Nyheim Hines was surprisingly involved in Week 1 as he had 7 carries and 8 catches on 8 targets, scoring two touchdowns and finishing as the RB8 on the week. He won't do that every week, and there's a good chance that's his best game this season, but he's going to continue to be a massive factor in the passing game for Philip Rivers. With Marlon Mack out of the lineup, Hines will see the field enough to make him a solid RB2 this week. Give him a bump in PPR leagues as well. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Hines burst onto the scene last week and appears to be a key fantasy football contributor moving forward. Hines should remain heavily involved through the receiving game and we've seen how easily he can turn that opportunity into a score. Hines is a great RB3/FLEX option this week that gets a slight boost in Full PPR leagues. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
With Hines, you should view him as a Tarik Cohen/James White-type running back that has Austin Ekeler possibilities. Because of that, he should be started as a high-end RB3 with a solid floor.It seemed like he was getting close to playing last week but was ultimately scratched. He did get in limited practices on both Thursday and Friday, so I'd assume he was close to play. The Jets signed Pierre Desir to be their top perimeter cornerback this offseason, but that went south quickly, as he allowed two touchdowns before halftime in his coverage, and that got him a quick seat on the bench. Seriously, he was benched for Nate Hairston at halftime. The other perimeter cornerback (where Aiyuk figures to play 80 percent of his snaps) is Blessuan Austin, who has seen exactly 39 career targets in his coverage. He was a sixth-round pick for the Jets in last year's draft who was forced into starting. He hasn't been horrible, though he's also not someone you need to avoid. Still, it's Aiyuk's first game and he may be on a snap count. He's a boom-or-bust WR5-type option.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Hines is going to see more action with Marlon Mack gone for the season and he had two touchdowns last week. Hines is a good flex option as the third down back for the Colts.
