Nyheim Hines will be a beneficiary of Rivers being the QB
Regarding Marlon Mack/Jonathan Taylor, Sirianni says: “We have two exceptional backs. We’ve seen it work in the NFL so much where you have different contrasts of guys…. They have different running styles but they’re both complete backs.” Says Nyheim Hines will be a beneficiary of Rivers being the QB. Cites Danny Woodhead as an example, who caught a lot of passes from Rivers when Sirianni was in San Diego. (Stephen Holder on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: Austin Ekeler and Melvin Gordon have been beneficiaries of Rivers checkdown style over the last couple years which breathes some life into the PPR fantasy value of Hines.
