Hines rushed two times for a loss of one yard, but hauled in four passes (five targets) for 46 receiving yards in Sunday's 19-13 win over the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Marlon Mack (ankle) was able to return and handle a heavy workload, which kept Hines in a third-down back role. The 22-year-old actually led all Colts receivers in yardage on a night where the team was focused on moving the chains and controlling the ball. Mack will receive an extra week to return to full strength over the team's upcoming bye, so expect Hines to be limited to work on passing downs in Week 7's matchup against the Texans.

Hines ran for six yards on three attempts and added 39 yards on six receptions during Sunday's 31-24 loss to Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Hines enjoyed a season-high nine touches Sunday as Marlon Mack (ankle) exited the game early and did not return. With the extent of Mack's injury unclear, fans will obviously be monitoring the situation heading in to Week 5 against the Chiefs. Should Mack miss time, Hines would seem to be likely to maintain his pass-catching role with a few more carries with Jordan Wilkins slightly more established as a runner.

Hines rushed twice for three yards and brought in three of four targets for 26 yards in the Colts' 27-24 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The backup running back saw minimal action on the ground, but his pass-catching skills were put to use as customary. Hines hasn't logged more than four carries in any of the first three games, but he already has a pair of four-target tallies over that span and notched a season high in receiving yardage Sunday. The 22-year-old will look to up his contributions at the expense of the Raiders in Week 4.

Hines had two carries for nine yards one one reception for five yards on two targets in Sunday's win over Tennessee.

EDGE Analysis

Hines didn't get much work behind Marlon Mack, though he got more snaps on offense (13) than No. 3 running back Jordan Wilkins (10 snaps). However, Wilkins had 82 yards rushing on five carries. Hines is still the No. 2 running back, but his production will be volatile based on when he's needed in the passing game. Still, it's concerning that he has just six carries and six targets combined in the first two games with Jacoby Brissett under center.

Hines carried the ball four times for 13 yards and caught all four of his targets for four yards in Sunday's 30-24 overtime loss to the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

The split of touches in the Colts' backfield didn't change with Jacoby Brissett under center, as Marlon Mack saw 25 carries but didn't catch a pass. Hines could find better opportunities to make an impact in the passing game later in the year, but it will likely take an injury to Mack for Hines to see a significant workload.

Hines carried six times for one yard and wasn't targeted in the passing game in the Colts' 24-16 preseason loss to the Bills on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Hines started and played the first three series with Jacoby Brissett under center, but as his final line implies, he found zero running room versus a stingy Bills front. The second-year pro entered training camp with the label of third-down back attached, following an impressive rookie season in which he gained 314 yards and scored two touchdowns on the ground but added a 63-425-2 line through the air. Fellow second-year pro Jordan Wilkins figures to serve as the complement to starter Marlon Mack, leaving Hines with the majority of passing-down work.

Hines is expected to handle third-down duties with Marlon Mack as the lead back, head coach Frank Reich told the Indianapolis Star Tribune.

EDGE Analysis

Reich made his comments after Indy's recent minicamp as Hines has retained his third-down role during spring practices despite the Colts adding Spencer Ware to the backfield. Hines will battle Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Williams for the No. 2 RB role.

Hines did not have a carry or reception in Saturday's playoff win over Houston and played just nine snaps on offense. Hines didn't play much because Marlon Mack was playing well, Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni told Stephen Holder of The Athletic.

EDGE Analysis

We can only assume Hines will be used more this week against Kansas City since Hines previously had a low of 14 snaps and four touches in any game. Still, he had just three rushing attempts and seven receptions in his final two games of the regular season.

Hines rushed for two yards and a touchdown on two carries and added 41 yards on four catches during Sunday's 28-27 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The Colts were down by 14 points early Sunday before Hines barreled into the end zone on a goal-line score late in the second quarter, putting Indy on the board. The rookie's role has become more defined down the stretch, one that limits his carries behind Marlon Mack, but has led to him topping 40 yards receiving in three of his last four games. With the playoffs on the line, he'll take on a tough Titans defense Sunday, one that held him to 34 total yards in Week 11.

Hines carried six times for 19 yards and caught four passes for an additional 45 yards during Sunday's 23-0 win over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Hines was the only other back to carry the ball behind Marlon Mack, but he averaged just 3.2 yards per carry. He frequently lined up in the slot and on the outside, finishing second on the team in catches and receiving yardage. Hines is more of a change of pace option behind Mack, but his receiving chops give him some fantasy value in the right matchup. That said, he's no guarantee to produce next Sunday against the Giants.
