  Colts | Decreased role in store for Nyheim Hines?    Tue Jun 11, 09:48 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines' role could be affected 'a little bit' by the arrival of WR Parris Campbell, according to head coach Frank Reich.'And yeah, with Parris (Campbell) in the slot that could affect Nyheim a little bit. It would ultimately, probably affect him a little bit, but that is a good thing. We will just continue to fine tune and by game plan, I think that is one of the things that we've done well is figure that out week-to-week how to apply the personnel against the defense that we're playing,' Reich said.

Footballguys view: Keep an eye on this situation in training camp and the preseason. Hines was targeted 81 times in 2018 as a rookie, snaring 63 passes for 425 yards and two touchdowns. However, out of those 63 catches only 12 of them came from the slot. If he does lose some slot routes to Campbell, the Colts could easily make up for that with other touches or receptions with Hines in the backfield. Hines has deep flex appeal in PPR leagues because of his receiving ability. His current ADP is RB49 (11.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Lofty goal for Nyheim Hines    Thu Jun 6, 10:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines said he wants to reach '1,000 all-purpose yards' in 2019.

Footballguys view: That's not a terribly outlandish goal for the young back. Hines is in a cramped Colts backfield, but his skill set as a runner and receiver is not duplicated by any other back on the depth chart. He had over 700 all-purpose yards last year, so an increase of 300 yards over the course of the season isn't that much. He's currently going off the board at RB48 (11.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Colts | Nine receptions for Nyheim Hines    Sun Dec 2, 05:39 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines caught nine passes for 50 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13.

Footballguys view: Hines was a checkdown option for Andrew Luck all day because the Jaguars put the clamps on the Colts pass offense. He'll still be only a desperation play next week against the Texans.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed five times for 19 yards in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added seven receptions for 33 yards on nine targets.

Footballguys view: Hines was considered a dead man walking for fantasy after a terrible preseason, but once the regular seasons started, he had a nice role in the passing game. He'll have some marginal value in PPR leagues going forward, and his dynasty value has a pulse.
