Nyheim Hines Fantasy Football News 2019

Colts RB Marlon Mack suffered a fractured hand in Sunday’s win over Jacksonville. Jordan Wilkins sat out today with an ankle injury, so the Colts might need to roll out a Jonathan Williams-Nyheim Hines tandem Thursday against Houston. Williams was particularly impressive against the Jags on Sunday, rushing 13 times for 116 yards.

Colts RB Marlon Mack was knocked out of Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a hand injury and won't return. RB Jordan Wilkins (ankle) is inactive today, leaving Indy with RBs Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Williams.

Colts RB Marlon Mack's status for tonight's game against the Chiefs will be a game-time decision, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the "team will be cautious." That's worrisome for the fantasy outlook on Mack, who missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to a full workout Friday. If you're waiting on him, then you'll need to have Nyheim Hines, Jordan Wilkins or a decent option from the Chiefs or 49ers available as a fallback.

Colts HC Frank Reich said Monday that RB Marlon Mack wasn't knocked out of Sunday's loss to the Raiders by his ankle injury. It sounds like the Colts just opted for more Nyheim Hines in catch-up mode. That obviously adds game-script risk to Mack going forward. But it at least sounds like he'll be available for Sunday night's game in Kansas City (where game script could be a problem).

Colts RB Marlon Mack (calf) is questionable for this weekend's game against the Falcons. He returned to a limited practice on Friday after missing the first 2 workouts of the week. The Indianapolis media seems to be optimistic about Mack's chances of playing vs. Atlanta. We'll get his official status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, Mack will be a risk/reward RB2. If not, Jordan Wilkins figures to serve as the Colts' lead back, with Nyheim Hines also playing an increased role.

Colts RB Marlon Mack was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday with a calf injury. The team only had a walkthrough, so it's an estimate of Mack's participation. This obviously bears monitoring over the next couple of days, though. Mack's absence would leave Jordan Wilkins as the Colts' lead ball-carrier, with Nyheim Hines potentially playing an expanded role.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday. He still has multiple stages of the protocol to pass through and isn't looking like a good bet to play against the Jaguars this weekend. That'd leave the backfield to Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins.

Colts RB Marlon Mack wasn't spotted at portion of Thursday's practice open to the media. He was limited in Wednesday's workout with an ankle issue. We assumed that was just a rest day, but it now looks like Mack is in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Raiders. That'd leave the backfield to Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins. We'll get another update on Mack's status tomorrow.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) put in a full practice on Wednesday. That presumably puts him on track to return for this weekend's game against the Jets. We're expecting Mack to step back in as Indy's lead ball carrier, but RB Nyheim Hines should continue to dominate passing-down work.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) is out for Thursday night's game against the Patriots. That'll again leave the backfield to Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines. Hines has posted 5+ catches in 3 of 4 games this season and is a RB3 or flex option in PPR leagues.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines will again share backfield duties for Indy.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) is not expected to play against the Texans today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That'll again leave the backfield to Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines. Both are low-end fantasy options, with Wilkins the better bet in non-PPR and Hines in PPR.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring, foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles. That'll again leave the backfield to Jordan Wilkins, Nyheim Hines and Christine Michael. With Mack out Week 1, Wilkins tallied 17 touches, Hines 12 and Michael 2. Wilkins is the best non-PPR bet; Hines in PPR. But we'd try to avoid the backfield against a stout Eagles run defense.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring, foot) missed Wednesday's practice. The hamstring is particularly worrisome after he missed most of August and the season opener with a bum hammy. We'll see if Mack is able to get back on the practice field tomorrow. His absence would leave the backfield to Jordan Wilkins and Hyheim Hines against the Eagles on Sunday.

Colts RB Jordan Wilkins injured his ankle in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Redskins and is questionable to return. He had been working in a 3-way committee with Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines. We'll update Wilkins' status when we learn more.

UPDATE: Wilkins returned in the 2nd half.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Redskins. It’s unclear how Indy will divide work between Mack, Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines. (Christine Michael is inactive.) This is a situation to try to avoid in Week 2 fantasy lineups, but Mack is certainly worth a roster spot if he’s available in your league.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Redskins. But he appears on track to play after putting in a full practice on Friday. “He looked good,” HC Frank Reich said afterward. “He’s got that explosiveness, that quickness. He’s really made good progress.” We’ll get Mack’s official status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, he figures to join a committee alongside Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines. It’s a situation to avoid in Week 2 fantasy lineups.

Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) remained sidelined on Wednesday. He's been out since August 9 and is looking like a long shot to play against the Bengals this weekend. That'll leave Indy's backfield to Jordan Wilkins, Christine Michael and Nyheim Hines. It's a situation best avoided in Week 1 fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Mike Wells considers Colts RB Jordan Wilkins the "front-runner" to start Week 1 if RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) isn't ready. Mack has yet to return to practice and seems unlikely to play against the Bengals on Sunday. That'd leave the backfield to Wilkins, Christine Michael and Nyheim Hines. All 3 guys figure to be involved, but it sounds like Wilkins is the favorite to lead the way in touches. It's a situation to avoid in Week 1 if possible, but Wilkins certainly deserves to be rostered in most fantasy leagues.

Colts RBs Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines worked with the 1st-team offense in Saturday night's preseason game against the 49ers. Neither guy was impressive, though. Wilkins carried 4 times for 0 yards and caught 1 pass for 4 yards with QB Andrew Luck and the starters. Hines mustered 3 yards on 3 carries with the 1st-team offense. RB Christine Michael also saw time with the starters and finished with 2 yards on 5 carries. The winner here looks to be Marlon Mack, who remains the favorite for lead RB duties if he can get past his hamstring issue.
