IND RB Nyheim Hines - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Nyheim Hines has a lot of upside this season. He’s caught 107 balls over the last two seasons and new quarterback Phillip Rivers has always been effective checking down to his running backs. Hines is shifty with good hands and showed flashes as a rookie before struggling last year with the rest of the Colts’ offense.

Fantasy Downside

Hines may get pushed out of the lineup by second-round running back Jonathan Taylor. Taylor showed improved receiving ability as he progressed in college and looked fluid catching the ball at the combine. It’s possible the Colts use Taylor as a replacement for Hines, rather than as a replacement for Mack, during his rookie year before Mack enters free agency in 2021. If that happens, there may not be many touches for the third year scatback out of NC State.

2020 Bottom Line

Hines is basically free in all league formats, so grabbing him in the last round of PPR leagues isn’t a terrible idea. If Taylor ends up taking more of Mack’s work and less of Hines’, then Hines should have a shot at the 81 targets he notched as a rookie. That would make him a viable bye-week filler in most PPR leagues.
