He's near the top of that third tier, I'd say. There the Moss tier, with just Moss. Then ther'es the T.O., Holt, Harrison, Chad, Horn. Then Hines, Javon Walker, Andre Johnson, D Jax, etc.
His value fluctuates up or down depending on the Steelers offense in general, and particularly Big Ben's performance. But don't assume Pittsburgh's shoddy pre-season means a damn thing. It simply doesn't.
Still, Hines hasn't found the endzone all that much lately. That could change if Bettis isn't in the lineup or isn't 100%. I think that would make Hines a better redzone option.
Even if Big Ben struggles, Hines's value will stay fair to good. He's always going to be a part of that offense. A big part. He's one of the best pass catchers, team players, possession receivers in the game.
