Hines rushed six times for 75 yards and caught one of three targets for eight yards in Saturday's 27-24 wild-card round loss to the Bills. He took a back seat to Jonathan Taylor (23 touches) but made the most of his limited touches, finishing with 83 scrimmage yards to Taylor's 84. Hines was tackled on the one-yard line twice, and while Taylor promptly powered in a touchdown on the next play after the first one, Hines' inability to get in proved costly the second time, as the Colts went backward from there and ultimately turned it over on downs. The versatile running back should maintain his prominent change-of-pace role in the final year of his rookie contract next season.
Hines rushed twice for 17 yards and secured six of seven targets for 50 yards in the Colts' 28-14 win over the Jaguars on Sunday. He also returned four punts for 40 yards. Hines was a complete afterthought in the ground game with Jonathan Taylor exploding for a career-high 253 yards and two touchdowns, but he paced the Colts in receptions and receiving yards in a game during which Indianapolis stuck to a conservative passing attack. Hines' carry total was his lowest since Week 9, but his reception total qualified as his second highest of the season. Given Taylor's late-season surge, Hines projects to primarily fill the pass-catching role he carries out so effectively in next weekend's wild-card matchup against the Bills.
Hines carried eight times for 44 yards and caught all five of his targets for 20 additional yards during Sunday's 28-24 loss to the Steelers. Hines averaged a healthy 5.5 yards per carry and snared every pass sent his way, but his inability to break off big plays limited his overall output. Although his 145 rushing yards over the last three games is by far his best stretch of the season, he's averaging just 16 receiving yards per game during the same timeframe. Hines could have plenty of chances to add to his numbers in next Sunday's regular-season finale against the hapless Jaguars.
Hines rushed the ball five times for 43 yards in Week 15 against the Texans. He added two receptions for 11 yards. Hines played a complementary role to Jonathan Taylor, with much of his production coming on the team's first drive on a 23-yard run. He chipped in from there for the remainder of the game, including additional rushes of 11 and nine yards as well as a nine-yard reception. Hines will likely be in line for a complementary role once again in a Week 16 matchup against the Steelers.
Hines carried seven times for 58 yards and caught all four of his targets for 17 additional yards during Sunday's 44-27 win over the Raiders. Hines gashed the Las Vegas defense for 8.3 yards per carry but saw his attempts limited as Jonathan Taylor rumbled for 150 yards on 20 carries of his own. He finished third on the team in targets and hauled in every pass thrown his way, but his long gain in that department went for just six yards as he finished with his lowest receiving output since Week 4. Still, Hines has been productive while averaging 13 touches per game over the last four and should have a great chance to pad his stats next Sunday against a dismal Texans defense.
