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.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines scored two receiving touchdowns on three catches for 54 yards in Week 8 at the Detroit Lions Sunday, Nov. 1. He rushed five times for eight yards.
Huddle Up: Baltimore is ahead for the Colts, and we've seen Hines perform this number once before back in Week 1. He then went ice cold until Week 8 and now has to contend with a much tougher opponent. Consider him absolutely no better than a wild gamble in PPR.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines posted five receptions for 27 yards on six targets in Week 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he didn't attempt a rush.
Huddle Up: Hines is only worth keeping around on a roster in deeper PPR leagues of 12 or more teams. The Colts are off in Week 7 before returning to action in Week 8 against the Detroit Lions.
Posted: 10/12/2020 2:25 am UTC
Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines posted three rushes for eight yards in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns and he added two receptions for 22 yards on four targets.
Huddle Up: The five total touches were his lowest since Week 2 when he saw the rock just once. It's the Jonathan Taylor show in Indy right now and Hines has rather limited fantasy appeal unless something happens to the rookie.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 2, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
Huddle Up: Hines should be used as mostly as a receiver out of the backfield this week against the Chicago Bears. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but is not a must-start option.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 1.
Huddle Up: Hines probably will be used mostly as a receiver out of the backfield this week against the Chicago Bears. He can be a flex option in some deeper leagues but can also be benched if fantasy players have better options available.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines (shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: Hines had a bounce back performance last week after a disappointing Week 2 game. He will have a role in the running and passing game this week against the Chicago Bears and can be a flex option in deeper leagues.
