Nyheim Hines
21-Year-Old Running BackRB
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.

Targeted five times

September 23, 2018
Hines caught all five of his targets for 25 yards and added 18 yards on five carries during Sunday's 20-16 loss in Philadelphia.
ANALYSIS
Hines, averaging just 3.1 yards per carry this year, did not provide much assistance on the ground in Marlon Mack's (hamstring/foot) absence, but continued to offer Andrew Luck with a security blanket in the passing game. Through three games, the rookie back has as many receptions as starting receiver Ryan Grant. He hasn't been able to break a big gain, but he's an interesting back-end PPR option, particularly against a Houston front that might force Luck to dump the ball off quickly.
