22-Year-Old Running BackRB

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Hines put together a solid rookie campaign as Andrew Luck's favorite outlet option, tying for seventh among 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 have 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 did not 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 managed only 3.7 YPC despite working behind an elite offensive line last season. His stature (5-8, 198) also becomes an issue when he's a ballcarrier, so he's not likely to see an expanded role on the ground. The Colts added Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West as insurance, but Hines' work on passing downs should keep him involved behind Marlon Mack in an offense that may be more cautious with Jacoby Brissett replacing Luck at quarterback.

October 22, 2019
Hines rushed once for three yards and caught one of two targets for 13 yards in Sunday's win over the Texans.
ANALYSIS
The 22-year-old saw only seven offensive snaps Sunday and was out-snapped by Jordan Wilkins. Hines should continue to be limited to passing-down work with Marlon Mack handling the bulk of the snaps.

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.
