2018 Fantasy Outlook
It's a bit of a cliche that the NFL is a "copycat" league, but there's still plenty of truth in the cliche. Alvin Kamara's success in New Orleans is going to spawn a host of imitators as offensive coordinators look to create mismatches in the passing game, and Hines might be among the first wave of Kamara wannabes after busting out a 4.38 40-yard dash at the combine and being drafted in the fourth round by the Colts. Like Kamara, Hines showed plenty of big-play ability in college, ripping off four touchdown runs of 48 yards or more in his final season at NC State, but unlike the Saints' star Hines doesn't have the frame to handle extensive work between the tackles. He also lacks Kamara's electric quickness and runs into more contact than he should, potentially leaving him susceptible to injury in the pros. Hines joins a crowded backfield that lacks an established No. 1, so if he stands out in camp he could take on a larger workload than expected, but more likely he'll slot in as the passing-down back behind Marlon Mack, with his production dependent as much on Andrew Luck's health as his own.

Totals 35 yards in loss

October 14, 2018
Hines rushed three times for 14 yards and added 21 yards on two catches during Sunday's 42-34 loss to the Jets.
ANALYSIS
Marlon Mack returned to the backfield for the first time since Week 2 and, not surprisingly, Hines' five touches ended up being his lowest total since Week 2. Hines has developed into a solid option in the passing game, something Mack hasn't really shown much of thus far in his career. That might keep Hines more active than he otherwise would be now that Mack is back in the fold, but Sunday's quiet outing against New York doesn't offer a ton of promise. A stout Buffalo defense awaits Sunday.
