  • Colts Expect 60-Plus Catches For Nyheim Hines

    Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines has been hyped up all offseason as the Colts look to get him more involved in the passing attack in 2022. According to ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler, Indy expects at least 60 receptions from Hines. The 25-year-old has caught 63 passes in a season twice, including his rookie year in 2018. His total of 40 catches for 310 yards and one touchdown were all career-lows, but the addition of quarterback Matt Ryan should change that. Jonathan Taylor will remain the team's bell-cow back on early downs for good reason, but the Colts will use Hines plenty as a pass-catcher, making him an intriguing RB3/4 with upside in point-per-reception fantasy leagues. For what it's worth, head coach Frank Reich recommends picking up Hines in fantasy drafts.

  • Colts Working To Get Nyheim Hines The Ball

    107.5 The Fan's Kevin Bowen said he expects the Indianapolis Colts to continue to find creative ways to get running back Nyheim Hines on the field more and to give him different touches. Indianapolis had a lot of success with both Hines and Jonathan Taylor on the field together in 2021, so that should expand this season. Taylor's presence as the lead dog in this backfield and one of the best RBs in football caps Hines' fantasy ceiling, but the Colts like how Hines complements Taylor, and new quarterback Matt Ryan could dump the ball off frequently to Hines. In his four seasons with the Colts, the 25-year-old has recorded 210 receptions for 1,537 yards and seven touchdowns through the air. Hines is absolutely worth a late-round flier in PPR formats.

  • Nyheim Hines Looking Forward To The Season

    Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines has come to realize he won't receive more carries than Jonathan Taylor, assuming the latter is healthy. However, that doesn't mean Hines won't be involved in the offense this year, with head coach Frank Reich stating after OTAs that he'd like the 25-year-old to finish in the top three in receptions for the club. After years of dealing with mediocre quarterback production, the NC State alum is excited to play alongside Matt Ryan, a signal-caller who may have a lot left in the tank. While Hines likely won't be as much of an asset in all fantasy formats, he deserves serious consideration in PPR leagues this season, especially after compiling 210 catches for 1,537 yards and seven touchdowns on the receiving end during his career. Hines will also be a valuable insurance policy for anyone fortunate enough to get Taylor on their roster.

  • Frank Reich Has High Hopes For Nyheim Hines

    Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich thinks it will be a great idea for fantasy managers to take running back Nyheim Hines this year. "If I was a fantasy owner, I'd consider drafting Nyheim (Hines)," Reich said. Ideally, fantasy managers would have both lead back Jonathan Taylor and Hines as an upside handcuff. The Colts plan to get more creative with how they use Hines in 2022, which could allow him to see more work out of the slot as a receiver. Those in PPR leagues particularly should have a keen eye on drafting the 25-year-old after he caught 40 of his 57 targets for 310 yards and one touchdown last year. Hines also contributed 56 carries for 276 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in 17 games. In 2020, Hines had a career-high 63 receptions for 482 yards and four TDs.
