Nyheim Hines finished with 63 receptions in 2018. He joined Saquon Barkley and Calvin Ridley as the only rookies in the league with 60 or more receptions last season. Hines added 85 carries for 314 yards (3.7 YPC), but his biggest strength was in the receiving game. Marlon Mack is the Colts primary rusher, but Hines definitely has a role in the offense as a pass-catcher. Interestingly enough, the majority of Hines receptions (60%), came in five games, which were all Colts losses. There's a place for a player of Hines' skill set, especially in leagues that award points for receptions. He can be used as a spot starter and is worth a roster spot as a RB3 or RB4. (May 3)

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.

Our 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.

Our 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.
