News: 4 days agoHines had four carries for 13 yards and one reception for nine yards on two targets in Sunday's win over Houston.
Spin: Hines played on just 11 of the offense's 48 snaps as he wasn't needed in the passing game with the Colts having a large lead and with Jonathan Taylor running well (145 yards rushing). Meanwhile, Marlon Mack had five carries and played nine snaps. While he may get more work when the Colts are playing from behind, it's worrisome he's had such little involvement the past three weeks (12 touches the last three games) while Mack has become more involved.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Hines has carved out a role as a solid change-of-pace and receiving back during his three NFL seasons. The 2018 fourth-round pick ranks sixth among RBs in targets (217), receptions (170) and receiving yards (1227) since he entered the league, though his 5-foot-8, 198-pound frame has limited him to 226 carries (50th-most) and a weak 4.0 YPC during the same timeframe. Hines posted a career-best 15th-place finish in fantasy points last season, but his already-small role as a rusher, especially at the goal line, may shrink further with Jonathan Taylor emerging into a superstar and Marlon Mack back healthy. Hines has some deep-league PPR flex appeal, but that's about where the 24-year-old maxes out.
