Hines sees a lot of work in the passing game and he is a good flex option against a team that he torched for 26 fantasy points a few weeks ago. He also should see more time with Jonathan Taylor out this week.The Giants are 25th against fantasy running backs, Bernard is a low-upside flex due to Joe Burrow's injury.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Now what do we do? Didn't I tell you to never fully trust a Colts running back? Just when you think it's Hines' job, Taylor comes out and gets a massive 26 touches. The good news is that it appears Jordan Wilkins is back to being the clear-cut third-string running back, which leaves us with Taylor and Hines to fight about. The last time these two teams met, it was Hines who was crushing them for 115 yards and two touchdowns. It wasn't really a fluke either, because when you factor in fantasy points per weighted opportunity, the Titans rank as the fifth-best matchup for running backs. They've allowed 10 top-24 running back performances through 10 games, including five top-10 performances. Most of the production has been on the ground, too, as Hines is the only running back who's accumulated more than 29 yards through the air against them. David Johnson was the only running back who's received 15-plus carries and didn't average at least 4.10 yards per carry, so it wasn't just one large performance that carried them. They've allowed eight running backs touchdowns (6 rushing, 2 receiving) in their last six games, and have been having issues in the secondary, so it's difficult to say which problem they want to address, though they can't let Hines run all over them again, as he had massive lanes to run through on seemingly every carry. The matchup here isn't the problem. Figuring out the timeshare is. Clearly, the Colts want Taylor to be the guy, though he's also on a short leash. For now, we should consider him the top back in the offense, though it's not an offense to take things for granted. Because of that, he'll remain in the high-end RB3 territory. As for Hines, he should be in play as an RB3/flex option considering what he did to this defense the last time around, but you already know the risk involved. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 With Joe Mixon finally landing on IR, Gio will get the start here yet again. Unfortunately, he's done very little with his expanded opportunity in recent weeks and he now gets a significant downgrade at QB. Bernard's going to have to deal with the Giants defense too, which has been playing pretty well as of late. All signs point to fading Bernard this week and it's going to be hard to trust him in your starting lineup. Gio can be viewed as a high-end RB3 purely based on the fantasy landscape.
