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.In his first NFL game, Hamler ran more routes than any other Broncos receiver. He's been mixed in the slot as well as the perimeter, though he's running the majority of them on the perimeter. That's a bit concerning, as the Bucs best cornerback Carlton Davis plays there, but it's worth noting that Davis has 4.53-second speed while Hamler ran a 4.27-second 40-yard dash in pre-Combine testing. The Bucs did allow 14 pass plays of 40-plus yards last year, which ranked as the fifth most, so there's a chance Hamler gets behind the defense. If he keeps getting seven targets like he did in Week 2, Hamler is going to be someone to look at as a boom-or-bust WR5-type option.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
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.Hamler is in line for an increased opportunity with Sutton out for the year and he certainly has the talent and speed to make that opportunity count for fantasy football. With that being said, Hamler is more of a bench stash right now versus a reliable fantasy asset. Against this defense, it's going to be hard to trust him in your lineup. I recommend waiting a week and seeing what his involvement in this offense looks like without Sutton on the field.
