23-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 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.

Supplies 56 total yards in Week 17

January 7, 2020
Hines carried seven times for 34 yards and added three receptions for 22 yards on five targets in the Colts' 38-20 loss to the Jaguars in Week 17.
ANALYSIS
After taking two punts to the house in the Colts' Week 16 win over the Panthers, Hines had a more muted impact on special teams in the regular-season finale, collecting 44 yards across his three total returns. Instead, Hines offered his primary contributions as a change-of-pace option behind top back Marlon Mack. Hines' 56 total yards from scrimmage were his most since Week 12, and his second-best output of the season overall. Expect the 2018 fourth-round pick to maintain his spot as the No. 2 option on the backfield depth chart entering training camp next summer.

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.
