Hines had 100 total scrimmage yards last week and, as Rapoport notes, there has been some inconsistency with rookie Jonathan Taylor. Green Bay has been one of the most favorable matchups for fantasy running backs this season. In fact, heading into the week, all three Colts backs (Hines, Taylor and Jordan Wilkins) rank in our top 40 half-PPR running backs, with Hines up top at No. 29.
IND RB Nyheim Hines - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 11 vs. Green Bay Packers
We’ve done this with Nyheim Hines before. We’ve gotten really excited about him after he scores multiple touchdowns. He legit looked great against the Titans last week on his way to 115 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries and five receptions, but Hines is just as likely to follow that up with four touches and 30 yards as he is to build on it next week.
That being said, Hines faces a Packers defense that ranks 30th in aFPA to opposing running backs this week. The Colts also figure to be playing from behind, making it likely Hines sees a few extra snaps on passing downs. He’s a solid RB3 or low-end RB2 in PPR formats.
