Hines lined up at wide receiver and ran a curl for a gain of 10. Hines made a nice move to get up field and took a screen pass for 11 yards.

Nyheim Hines remains the Colts lead back in the passing game and could have had a big game had he capitalized on his opportunities.

Hines released late out of the backfield and came wide open in the flat and broke into the open field for a 20 yard gain. Hines had a potential 21 yard touchdown hit him in the hands on a back shoulder throw but Hines could not make the catch against tight coverage.

Hines received a carry the following play and lost a yard.
2018 Week 7 vs BUF (5 / 47 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / -5 / 0 rec)

Hines found a crease up the middle and burst for 14 yards to set up a Colts field goal before halftime.

Hines picked up 11 yards on a check down from Luck.
2018 Week 5 vs NE (15 / 45 / 0 rush, 9 / 7 / 45 / 0 rec)
Nyheim Hines started the game at running back for the Colts after his strong game against the Texans. Hines was not used as creatively as he was against Houston and found little room to run after making underneath catches. Hines should continue to benefit from the Colts pass heavy attack until Marlon Mack returns to the lineup. Hines ran a quick out route from the slot and gained 5 yards. Hines dropped what would have been a 7 yard gain on 3rd and 6. Hines made a nice contested catch over the middle to gain 7 yards on 3rd and 3.

2018 Week 4 vs HOU (4 / 10 / 0 rush, 11 / 9 / 63 / 2 rec)
Nyheim Hines was targeted on a go route after beating his man off the line of scrimmage but he appeared to misjudge the pass and it fell incomplete. Hines caught a check down for a 4 yard gain. Hines ran a double move from the slot and showed off incredible ball skills to secure a 14 yard touchdown over Tyrann Mathieu. Hines caught a screen pass for 9 yards. Hines picked up 12 yards on a check down from Luck. Hines again beat Mathieu this time out of the backfield for an 8 yard touchdown. Hines converted a 3rd and 10 with a 13 yard gain on a dump off from Luck. Hines became the Colts featured back because of the early lead the Texans established.
2018 Week 3 vs PHI (5 / 18 / 0 rush, 5 / 5 / 25 / 0 rec)
Nyheim Hines played second fiddle to Jordan Wilkins as a runner but saw significant work later in the game as a receiver. Hines made a few nice plays in open space but likely won't see the volume needed to be a fantasy contributor barring another injury.
2018 Week 2 vs WAS (4 / 7 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / -2 / 0 rec)
Nyheim Hines scored impressive 8 yard touchdown on his second carry of the game featuring a spin move to evade two defenders. Hines is clearly the number three running back in the committee behind Marlon Mack and Jordan Wilkins.

Nyheim Hines was the second running back to see action behind Jordan Wilkins who started the game. Hines beat man coverage underneath and showed his speed to pick up 17 yards over the middle.

Hines gained 8, gained 3, lost 5 yards, and the last target was a throw away.
