Nyheim Hines 2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

I think if you subscribe to the belief that RB checkdowns can be a QB stat, it makes sense to believe that this role is not going away. Taylor will obviously be involved but look at Woodhead during the years he played with Rivers...

Rivers is the premiere checkdown QB.  Always get his satellite back wherever he's going.

Yes. He had a few runs in the red zone, had the teams 1st TD on a rush from shotgun

I'm putting in a $76 out of 100 bid. Almost picked him up on Sunday too...

Damn...I have $53 bid right now. 

You’re making me consider bumping it up even more.

Drafted him with my 2nd to last pick in the draft.  Almost cut him before the game.  Glad I didn't in a PPR.

.5 PPR is he worth blowing a big chunk of FAAB

That’s where I’m at now. My gut is saying yes because the pass catching back in a Rivers offense is usually an RB2 in any format, but especially PPR and Half PPR

0.5 PPR, $100 budget. I have a $53 bid for him now, and thinking that might not be enough. Tempted to increase.

I know in my league it’ll cost the full $100. But as many people have stated in these forums, the majority of your budget is spent the first few weeks.

He the pickup over Snell?

Yes. He was being used even before the Mack injury. He's the best receiving back on the team and it can't be overstated how much Rivers loves throwing to his RBs. Snell could be anything from a RBBC back to completely irrelevant if Conner comes back next week without incident. Not my ideal budget breaker.

Haha I do this too(last minute FAAB adjustment before falling asleep)

 

I’m at 75/200 for Hines and will almost definitely increase to at least 100. My RBs are my weakest position. Hardest part is deciding who to drop

Not much. M brown owned, so it's basically Snell and kelley after Hines. I guess *insert jets guy here* as well. I'm not big on Snell, PITs RBs a mess. So for me, its either Hines or save it. Dont really know who would be better with an injury in the future though

Torn between Hines and Kelley.  I start 2rbs and 2 flex and need an rb with a floor.  I do have Taylor so locking up colts are appealing but if Kelley is Gordan in this offense I have to think he’ll have a solid floor and weeks of rb 1 upside.  I get that Hines could be a poor mans Ekeler, but JT has serious draft cred and I have to think he runs away with it.

planning to drop $50-70k, which way would you go?

Hines. It’s gonna be a 50/50 to a 60/40 split with JT/NH. No way they risk overworking one over the other after the Mack injury.

 

Kelley I’m shying away from due to Ekelers presence and Tyrod leading the offense

I disagree. I think Taylor is going to be getting 20+ touches a week very soon. He’s a game-changer who proved to be an asset in the passing game.

He also had 18 fumbles in 41 games. Freakin Marlon Mack was the starter over this "game-changer", and even in his absence Hines got more work. I agree JT will get more action, but he will not become that 20+ touches guy. If he was that level of a RB, he'd have been the bellcow from the jump.
