Tate came back into the lineup in week two and was a fine option in Full PPR leagues, but he's nowhere near the type of player that he was previously. Maybe it was the injury, but Tate had little to no run after the catch ability and he was simply out there as a "chain mover". Tate could be rolled out as a FLEX option in Full PPR formats this week, but otherwise he can't be trusted in your lineup.Hines' usage last week was utterly bizarre. He was heavily featured by the Colts in week one and then got only one touch in week two. With the Colts moving solely to Taylor as their lead back, it looks like Hines' fantasy value was short lived. He can remain on your bench until we see if last week's usage was a fluke or not.
Mike Tagliere

It's possible that Tate is still trying to play through the hamstring injury that limited him through training camp and held him out of Week 1, as he went down to the ground without a fight against the Bears on multiple occasions, which is something we never see out of him, as he's typically among the league leaders in yards after the catch. It's something to monitor. K'Waun Williams is the one Tate will see in coverage most of the time, a cornerback who's played extremely well over the last two years, allowing just 5.35 yards per target and one touchdown on 82 targets in coverage. Now, to be fair, the 49ers run a lot of zone coverage, so Tate won't always line up against him, but that could be looked at as a negative as well. On 46 Golden Tate targets against zone coverage last year, Daniel Jones had just a 69.7 QB Rating compared to 108.9 in man coverage. Tate should be considered a middling WR4 who will get more targets now that Shepard and Barkley are out.I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone, or someone is messing with me. Hines totaled 15 touches in a game that was close throughout with Marlon Mack in the lineup for 1.5 quarters, but then totaled one touch in a game where Mack was on injured reserve. Cool story, Colts. Meanwhile, Taylor didn't see a single carry until the mid-second quarter in Week 1, but then received 26 carries in Week 2. I really hope there's more clarity this week, as it makes no sense to me. The only explanation is that Hines doesn't have a role when the Colts are well ahead, which is why they gave Jordan Wilkins nine carries in Week 2. They're double-digit favorites this week. What happens when your offense averages 68.0 plays per game and your opponent allows 70.0 plays per game? Fantasy points, that's what. The Jets run defense has been very good under Gregg Williams, as they allowed just 3.12 yards per carry through 17 games coming into Week 2. The wheels came off against the 49ers in that game though, as they allowed a few big runs that netted 184 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries. There's a lot to dissect here because the Jets aren't the same defense they were last year, as they've lost safety Jamal Adams and linebacker C.J. Mosley this offseason. Things can change quickly with teams trending in the direction the Jets are, so when you factor that in, combined with a 27-point team-implied total, Taylor is a must-start high-end RB2 who can reach top-five numbers if last week was a sign of things to come for the Jets. Hines is a lot trickier because the gamescript should be similar to last week's game where he got exactly one touch. It's starting to feel like a Tarik Cohen situation where you want him used more than he actually is. The Jets did allow the 11th-most fantasy points through the air to running backs last year, but again, Hines needs touches to get there. Consider him an RB4 where we hope last week was a fluke.
