Nyheim Hines: Early waiver wire option in Week 11

Nyheim Hines continues to shine for Colts as the favored RB on TNF — an early waiver wire option in Week 11.

The Indianapolis Colts have one of the most interesting running back situations in the NFL and Nyheim Hines could be working toward taking control of the backfield. He was far more productive than Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Taylor in the Colts’ Week 10 win over the Tennessee Titans. His versatility could make him a desirable waiver wire target ahead of Week 11.

Hines ran for 70 yards and a score on a season-high 12 carries in Week 10. He also caught five passes for 45 yards and a score. This performance came just 11 days after he caught two touchdown passes against the Detroit Lions. Hines is earning more opportunities for himself and is widely available in fantasy leagues. Hines is only rostered in 41 percent of ESPN/Yahoo leagues and could be a viable RB2 or flex if he continues to steal touches from Taylor and Wilkins.
