Taylor now has now out-touched Hines 64-29 in last three games together, meaning Taylor is the clear RB1 for the Colts right now. The Colts get the Texans and then the Steelers over the next two fantasy playoff weeks.
IND RB Nyheim Hines - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Nyheim Hines had eight carries for 44 yards last week against the Steelers, and he added 20 yards on five receptions. Hines has 58 receptions on the season, making him a quality deep-league PPR option in most weeks. He has sudden outbursts of scoring – multiple touchdowns in three games this season – but that kind of scoring hasn’t been consistent enough to expect it. Still, his work in the passing game gives him a high floor in PPR formats.
This week, Hines has upside against a vulnerable Jaguars defense. Jacksonville ranks 25th in aFPA to opposing running backs, and Hines’ continued use – particularly in the passing game – makes him worth considering as a flex or RB3 option, especially in PPR leagues.
