Hines has been seeing just enough work out of the backfield to be in the fantasy football conversation, but he has yet to deliver a solid performance after his week one explosion. Hines is a low-end RB3 this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Taylor's yards per carry is fine, but we expected more out of the rookie who broke records at Wisconsin. Why isn't he generating more behind this great offensive line? Well, it doesn't help that he's broken just 11 tackles on 105 total touches, which is one of the worst rates in the league. By comparison, Hines has broken eight tackles on just 49 touches. Heck, Jordan Wilkins has broken 11 tackles on his 29 carries. When you see Taylor's minuscule 2.17 yards after contact, you understand why he hasn't lived up to expectations. Watching the film on him, he has gotten better as the year's gone on, but there's still room for improvement. Will he make the Lions pay for passing on him in this year's draft? Opponents have averaged 23.8 carries per game against them, and it might be more if they weren't so efficient with them. Each carry has netted 4.79 yards per carry. Each target has netted 6.62 yards. Every 19 touches net a touchdown. There have been five different running backs who've finished as top-10 options against the Lions, including seven running backs who've totaled at least 63 yards on the ground. This is your reminder that they've played six games. The 0.97 PPR points per opportunity they've allowed ranks fifth, right behind the Panthers. Taylor hasn't lived up to expectations, but this is another week he should post low-end RB1 numbers. Through six games, Hines has averaged the same amount of weighted opportunity as someone like Chase Edmonds and Frank Gore, so he has value in a pinch, especially knowing the Lions allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per target to running backs. He should be considered a high-end RB4 during bye weeks.
