Kyle Yates

Leonard Fournette took advantage of Jones' mistake in week one and put together a decent stat line when it was all said and done, but he now appears set to return to a complimentary role in this backfield with Jones being named the starter again for week two. At this point, Fournette is merely a desperation FLEX play that you're hoping can find the end zone in order to make an impact for fantasy football. There's simply no guaranteeing what his workload is going to be in this one or any game moving forward. It's going to take an injury to Jones for Fournette to be trustworthy for fantasy.Nyheim Hines had some question marks surrounding him coming into the season. There was absolutely the possibility that he was a valuable option for fantasy football as a change-of-pace option to JT, but Marlon Mack's presence on this depth chart made that situation a little bit murky. Mack was active on Sunday, but was nowhere to be seen and Hines logged an impressive nine carries on the ground to go with eight targets in the passing game. If Mack is going to remain on the sideline, Hines absolutely is worth looking at as a low-end RB3 in Full PPR formats. Especially if Wentz is going to target his RBs as heavily as he did in week one.

Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians is already setting us up for guesswork. After Jones lost an early fumble, Fournette wound up shouldering most of the load, playing 42 of 65 snaps and handling 14 touches (nine carries, five receptions). Jones played just six snaps, had four carries for 14 yards and didn't see a target. Bernard, just back from a sprained ankle, played 17 snaps, but he didn't have a rushing attempt and caught 2 of 3 targets for 12 yards. The RoJo fumble seemed to trigger Fournette workhorse usage, but then Arians said earlier this week that Jones would start in Week 2. This is a murky situation, and people will probably spend too much time trying to decipher a three-headed backfield on a pass-happy team.The one positive thing about the Colts' offense in Week 1 was that Taylor and Hines both had respectable fantasy performances even though the Colts' offense was mostly toothless. There were fears that with check-down king Philip Rivers no longer at the controls of the Indy offense, there might not be as many targets for the Colts' backs. Well, Taylor had seven targets (establishing a career high) and six catches (tying a career high) for 60 yards. Hines caught 6 of 8 targets for 48 yards. Add the rushing numbers and Taylor totaled 116 yards from scrimmage, Hines 82. Also encouraging for fantasy managers who invested in Taylor or Hines: They were the only two Indianapolis running backs to take a snap. Marlon Mack didn't play. The Rams play rugged run defense, but Taylor is still a low-end RB1 for Week 2, and Hines is a low-end RB3 in half-point PPR but a mid-range RB3 in full-point PPR.

 Hines had a strong Week 1 showing, totaling 15 touches and nabbing six-of-eight targets. He's clearly got a locked-in role as a receiver out of the backfield, and that should bode well for his Week 2 outlook. The Colts may have a tough time moving the ball against the Rams, but the elite defense actually has actually surrendered 5.1 receptions per game to RBs over its last 17 contests - higher than league average. If you're in a league that rewards any points for receptions, Hines can safely be deployed as a flex option this week.
