Draft note
by John Paulsen
Hines surprisingly finished as the No. 20 fantasy back last season, averaging 10.1 PPG in half-PPR. He did most of his damage as a receiver (63-482-4 on 76 targets), vulturing a sizable and valuable workload from Jonathan Taylor. Hines’ involvement didn’t decline at all in the final weeks of the season–it actually increased from 8.7 touches per game (Weeks 1-10) to 9.4 in the final six games of the season, when Taylor was active–so prospective Taylor owners hoping for a mega-workload from the second-year back may be disappointed. As for Hines, he does offer a decent weekly floor; he scored 7.0+ fantasy points (PPR) in 12 of 16 games last year. He also had four spike weeks of 17+, including Week 12 (which Taylor missed), where Hines turned 18 touches into 95 total yards. Hines would likely see a significant uptick in touches if Taylor were to miss any time, though Marlon Mack would be in the mix as well.

IND RB Nyheim Hines - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Houston Texans

Nyheim Hines has been frustratingly inconsistent throughout his career, but his targets usually aren’t a problem. As such, only three targets in the past two games combined is alarming. He finished Monday night against the Ravens with only 18 yards on four carries, and didn’t catch his lone target.

This week, Hines faces a Texans defense that ranks 13th in aFPA to opposing running backs. He still has value in PPR formats in case he can find his way back into the offense, but with more than two targets in just two games so far this season, it’s hard to trust him in lineups. We have him ranked as a low-end RB3 this week and fantasy managers should look elsewhere if possible.
