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 caught nine passes for 50 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13.
Huddle Up: Hines has been involved in the running and passing game this season and tied a season high with his nine reception against the Jaguars. He can be considered a flex option in point-per-reception leagues because of his role in the passing game.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed for 47 yards on five carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 7.
Huddle Up: Hines has seen a decrease in touches since Marlon Mack returned to the lineup but still has a role in the offense. He should see a handful of touches next week against the Oakland Raiders but probably will not be a great fantasy option.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed 15 times for 45 yards and caught seven passes for 45 yards in a 38-24 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Hines was suspected to see plenty of work in the passing game, but he also led the team in rushing attempts. He looks like a viable flex play in PPR formats.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines ran four times for just 10 yards in Week 4 against the Houston Texans, but he helped out with nine grabs, 63 yards and two touchdowns.
Huddle Up: Hines actually tied a team high with 11 targets, tying Chester Rogers. The Colts could do nothing right on the ground so it was all passing all the time for Andrew Luck and the home team. Hines saw less of the field in training camp and the preseason because he was putting the ball on the ground, but he looks to have righted that ship and he could be the most productive fantasy back among the Indy backfield.

Detroit Lions RB Nyheim Hines rushed five times for 18 yards and he added five receptions for 25 yards on five targets in the Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Hines actually led all Indy backs in total touches, although his stat line certainly wasn't anything to write home about. However, it appears his preseason and training camp fumbling issues are behind him and perhaps he'll seize the starting job since no one is stepping up for it. The Colts host the Texans in Week 4.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed four times for just seven yards in the Week 2 game against the Washington Redskins, but he was able to find the end zone.
Huddle Up: Hines had some issues hanging onto the football during training camp and the preseason, so he is well behind Jordan Wilkins and Marlon Mack in the pecking order for carries. He's a player worth watching as the season goes on, but he isn't someone to rely on regularly in redraft leagues heading into Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines rushed five times for 19 yards in Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added seven receptions for 33 yards on nine targets.
Huddle Up: Hines had fumbling issues during training camp and the preseason, and it appeared he might not play a big role initially. However, the rookie played a big part in the offense and he didn[t put the ball on the ground in this one. He might be a useful option in PPR leagues going forward, but remember, he and Jordan Wilkins were seeing more work with Marlon Mack on the shelf. When Mack returns, the backfield picture and everyone's fantasy appeal is muddied.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines ran five times for 12 yards and caught one pass for nine yards in Week 2 preseason action versus the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, Aug. 20.
Huddle Up: Hines has reportedly been struggling in camp and hasn't torn it up in exhibition play either, totaling 19 yards on eight carries. He has also fumbled four times, which definitely isn't going to help his cause. The rookie needs to be in space to be at his best, and he isn't getting many of those opportunities thus far. It remains to be seen whether or not he'll get those chances in the team's dress rehearsal this Saturday against the San Francisco 49ers. For now, owners need to view him as a later-round lottery ticket.

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines has been lining up in the slot and being sent into motion out of the backfield when he isn't running the ball.
Huddle Up: The Colts are still sorting out their backfield rotation, but Hines has a good chance to see time as a third-down back and as a receiver. He's worth a late-round pick in PPR formats.
