Nyheim Hines, Indianapolis Colts
Stats: 15 carries, 45 yards, seven receptions and 45 receiving yards
The Indianapolis Colts are an interesting team to watch. They obviously lack a ton of overall talent, but have been able to play competitive football so far this season. Some of that has been the return of Andrew Luck.
His solid play so far has allowed players like Nyheim Hines to become fantasy relevant options. Hines is coming off two nice performances and has established himself as a part of the game plan.
The key to Hines’ fantasy potential is his ability to also contribute as a pass catcher. He features reliable hands with the speed needed to break off big chunks of yardage. Luck seems to already trust Hines and doesn’t hesitate to get him targets.
Hines has also impressed as a runner. Despite is smaller stature, he has shown the ability to work between the tackles. At this point he is the the team’s top running back option and should remain heavily involved in the action.
Indianapolis has given the likes of Jordan Wilkins and Robert Turbin a chance at seizing more carries. However, neither of these two were able to standout.
Marlin Mack could still figure into the rotation at some point, but he is still working his way back off an injury.
