The Colts have used the speedy Hines in a variety of roles this spring and early summer. So far the returns are good enough that he should earn playing time in the starting rotation as a committee back this fall as long as his performance translates to live action in August. He's not a big enough back for most teams to consider him an every-down option, but he's a big play threat with PPR potential.

Summary

Nyheim Hines' role with the Colts is yet to be determined, but his speedy, versatile skill set is one to keep your eye on. The undersized rookie from North Carolina State may wind up playing the Corey Clement role in Frank Reich's offense, or he could evolve into a receiver. The style of running back that thrives in the NFL is changing. Tarik Cohen, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, and going back further, Danny Woodhead, Darren Sproles are all better receivers than rushers, but they carved out a niche role with their team. The same may be the case with Hines. He'll need to put work into both his rushing and receiving skills to earn increased playing time, but the seed is sown for him to have a flourishing complementary role with the Colts. How that translates to fantasy production is yet to be seen, but his 4.38 speed and instinctual athleticism make him a player to watch. (May 20)
