Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines said he wants to be the team's main kick and punt returner this upcoming season.
Huddle Up: Hines is expected to have a solid role in the offense, so the team may not want to use him as their main returner. Hines has a chance to be a solid flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines will have a prominent role in the offense this upcoming season as the third-down back, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: It appears like Hines is in line for a lot of targets in the passing game but likely will mostly be used on third downs. He should be considered a flex option in point-per-receptions leagues and will also have value in standard leagues.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines will be involved in the passing game and could catch as many as 10 passes in a game this upcoming season, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Huddle Up: Hines likely will not receive many carries with Marlon Mack and Jonathan Taylor on the roster but will be used as a receiver out of the backfield in games. He can be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni believes RB Nyheim Hines' role out of the backfield as a pass-catching back will benefit 'big time' by playing with new starting QB Philip Rivers.
Huddle Up: Hines has 107 receptions for 745 yards receiving and 2 touchdowns during his first two seasons in the NFL, but his numbers (44-320-0) took a hit last season. With RBs Marlon Mack and Jonathan Taylor also in the mix for the heavy lifting, Hines' value only comes in PPR leagues where he is a late-round flier in drafts this summer.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines was used as a punt returned in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans once WR Chester Rogers (knee) went down with a fractured knee.
Huddle Up: It explains why Hines didn't see as many carries in the run game, with Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Williams handling the tailback chores with Marlon Mack still being evaluated.

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.
'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.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines said he wants to reach '1,000 all-purpose yards' in 2019.
Huddle Up: Hines was a weapon in the passing attack last year, but he could have a hard time matching his total of 63 receptions last year after the Colts added Devin Funchess and Parris Campbell. He's only worth a speculative add late in PPR formats.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed for 47 yards on five carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.
