Nyheim Hines and Deon Cain Hype Train...

June 16, 2018

It's a strange dilemma for dynasty-fantasy football GMs... I could name about 50 other offensive players more interesting from the 2018 NFL Draft than Nyheim Hines, so when I read any fantastical Colts' camp stories of Hines, I tend to just ignore them. On the other hand, you look at the Colts RB depth chart and you can't believe that's an actual NFL team's depth chart -- as such, maybe Hines needs to be taken more seriously?

Ditto, Deon Cain...I could name not just 50 offensive rookies more interesting but probably 50 WRs more interesting from this last draft, including Colts draft pick Daurice Fountain (never mentioned) -- but we are with a depth chart where Chester Rogers is debated as a fantasy impact player.

Here's an article (below) that shows why all the excitement on these two. *Note -- when a great attribute is 'lines up all over the place', I then think the team/coach won't really push that in the regular-season, but maybe we're finally arriving at the WRasRB and RBasWR gender/position neutral strategy, as I predicted would hit harder last year (but didn't hit all that hard).

Here's what an Indianapolis Star writer thinks about the Nyhein-Cain duo:
