Nice post, you're obv a smart guy. But I picked up J.Kelly for free off waivers before week 1 so I guess I'm even smarter than you.

Moment of silence for everyone who blew their faab load on this guy

Nyheim Hines is going to be a League Winner after the Colts Week 7 BYE Do not be fooled by these last 2 weeks versus Cousins/Vikings and Darnold/Jets. You want to play Hines facing good QBs/Offen

What % of FAAB would you all recommend dropping on Hines?

There's only a few times per season where you splurge (>50%) FAAB on a WW pickup. This is one of them.

Given Rivers' historical body of work in checking down to his RB, you have to bring out the FAAB Brinks truck on a pass-catching specialist like Hines.

Obviously Hines won't score a TD - let alone 2 - every week.  Best part though, is that even if he didn't score yesterday, he still gave you 15.3 points in PPR.

This wasn't some random Week 1 outburst like we tend to see.  He is now the certain #2 RB on the depth chart at least.  Possibly a 1A and 1B situation seeing how things develop moving forward.  Pass catching specialist with a QB who has a 16 year career known for targeting the RB position.  Consistency and familiarity with the team and offense. 

#1 WW add easily this week and I think he has legit top 20 PPR potential this season if he converts a few more scores.  He'll get the targets to finish high, just depends on the TDs.

I liked Hines enough to draft him in both of my leagues, but I’m admittedly having a hard time seeing him as a possible RB2 or as anything more than a lower-end Flex. I just can’t imagine him reaching 15 touches very often, and we can’t rely on 8 receptions or a TD each week. 

I’d love to be proven wrong lol.

If he's a low-end flex, who would you consider a high-end flex?

I’m not basing it off this week alone. There will likely be weeks when he goes 4-15, 4-30 with no TDs...weeks when he gets 10-12 touches for 60 yds and no TD. He’ll also have weeks when he does well, but I don’t know how consistent he’ll be. 

I could be wrong and he ends up being fairly consistent and puts up RB2 or high Flex numbers. I’m just not convinced after one week. 

But I’m open to hearing your thoughts, as well.
