22-Year-Old Running BackRB
Indianapolis Colts
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Hines put together a solid rookie campaign as Andrew Luck's favorite outlet option, tying for seventh among all RBs in targets and eighth in receptions. The NC State product has outstanding speed in the open field - he ran track in college and could've competed for a spot on the Olympic team had he stuck with it instead of concentrating on football - and busted out a 4.38 40-yard dash at the combine last year. That background, and the fact he didn't become a full-time running back until his junior year, also limits the damage Hines can do with his speed. He lacks vision and doesn't have a good feel for when to attack holes and when to let them develop, which is why he only managed 3.7 YPC despite working behind an elite offensive line. His stature (5-8, 198) also becomes an issue when he's a ball carrier, so he's not likely to see an expanded role on the ground. The Colts added Spencer Ware in the offseason as insurance, but Hines' skills as a receiver and game-breaking potential should keep him involved behind lead runner Marlon Mack in an offense that revolves around Luck.

Limited snaps in wild-card win
RBIndianapolis Colts
January 9, 2019
Hines didn't register a carry or reception in Saturday's 21-7 wild-card win over Houston while playing just nine offensive snaps. The rookie didn't play much because Marlon Mack was playing well, Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni told Stephen Holder of The Athletic.
ANALYSIS
Despite the lack of usage this past weekend, Hines has nowhere to go up in terms of workload after he previously recorded no fewer than four touches in any game this season. Still, it's clear Hines hasn't been as much of a factor in recent weeks, as he had just three rushing attempts and seven receptions over the final two games of the regular season.

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.
