Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines caught six passes for 48 yards against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1. He also rushed for 34 yards on nine carries during the game.
Huddle Up: Hines has become a valuable part of the Colts offense and will continue to be used in the running and passing game. He could be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues since he looks to have a connection with Carson Wentz.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension with the Colts Friday, Sept. 10, worth $18.6 million. The deal includes $12 million in guaranteed money.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines was third among running backs in the league with 77 targets in 2020.
Huddle Up: Hines was 18th at the position in PPR leagues, and he could stand to improve on those numbers with Carson Wentz under center. Hines will be an undervalued RB2 in PPR leagues.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed eight times for 44 yards in Week 16 against the Pittsburgh Steelers and he added five receptions for 20 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Hines saw a high volume of touches, and he averaged 5.5 yards per carry. Still, as long as Jonathan Taylor remains healthy, Hines' fantasy ceiling is rather limited. The Colts host the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 17.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed for 43 yards on five carries against the Houston Texans in Week 15. He also caught two passes for 11 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Hines has been receiving around 10 touches per games over the last several weeks and probably will receive a similar workload next week. He could be a flex option in some leagues but can be also be benched if better options are available.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed seven times for 58 yards and caught all four of his targets for 17 additional yards in Week 14 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: It was Jonathan Taylor Day in Week 14, and it appears the Colts are beginning to see the light as it relates to the ideal roles for the rookie and Hines. The latter got his usual as a receiver out of the backfield and was a very effective change-of-pace for Taylor when he needed to be. Hines has been a weekly threat for about 10 touches for some time now, and he'll be a strong flex consideration in Week 15 versus the woeful Houston Texans defense.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed 10 times for 29 yards and caught eight of his 10 targets for 66 yards in a 45-26 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Hines was a little busier as a runner with Jonathan Taylor out, and he easily paced all Indy backs in touches. If Taylor remains sidelined in Week 13, Hines should be a decent PPR flex play against Houston.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines carried the ball six times for two yards in a Week 11 victory over the Green Bay Packers. Hines also caught three passes (on four targets) for 31 yards.
Huddle Up: There was a lot of speculation that Hines would be the primary option for the Colts against the Packers on Sunday, but he couldn't get anything going on the ground, and the team made the switch to Taylor at halftime. A rematch with the Titans could be just what the doctor ordered, though, as Hines hit them for 115 yards and two scores in Week 10. Try to find a spot for him in your lineup.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines appears likely to get the bulk of the carries in Week 11's game versus the Green Bay Packers, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Huddle Up: Hines had 70 rushing yards, 45 receiving yards and two total touchdowns in Week 10 against the Tennessee Titans. His recent performance, combined with inconsistent play from rookie RB Jonathan Taylor, mean that Hines should continue to see plenty of offensive snaps going forward. He merits consideration as an RB2 option in fantasy leagues, especially in PPR formats.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines had 12 carries for 70 yards and a touchdown against the Tennessee Titans in Week 10. Hines also caught five passes (on six targets) for 45 yards and a touchdown.
Huddle Up: Prior to Thursday night, Hines' biggest game of 2020 came back in Week 1 when he tallied 73 total yards and two TDs. Against the Titans, Hines went off for 115 combined yards and a pair touchdowns; that gives him four scores in his last three games. There's some legit Austin Ekeler vibes with Hines, but the Colts haven't seen fit to give him steady usage. Hines deserves to be owned, though knowing when to deploy him in your lineup could be tough.
