Huddle Up: The Colts did not give Mack any true competition in the form of an early-round running back in the draft and have yet to sign a free agent who could push him. While telling The Star that Mack needs to improve in pass pro, general manager Chris Ballard also said 'everything with Marlon was better than I expected, everything.' Indianapolis will probably open the season with a committee backfield, but Mack should be given a shot to run away with the job if he starts fast. He's a high-upside, high-end flex option for now.

Huddle Up: The Colts did very little to address the running back position in the draft or free agency, so this is Mack's backfield to lead despite head coach Frank Reich suggesting his team doesn't have a starting running back right now. At the very least, Mack figures to nearly double his 93 carries from a season ago, which would make him a strong flex option and possible RB2 given his big-play ability.

Huddle Up: Mack should still be considered the frontrunner to start, but he could share touches with Nyheim Hines and others. Mack looks like a RB3 candidate at this point.

Huddle Up: If the Colts don't add another back early in the draft, Mack could be given a chance to lead the backfield in 2018. In that scenario, he would be worth grabbing as a RB3.

Huddle Up: Mack has received a limited amount of touches during games this season and has not been a big factor for fantasy owners. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues next week against the Houston Texans.

Huddle Up: Mack has been receiving a handful of touches during games and probably will receive a similar workload next week against the Denver Broncos. He probably can be avoided in most leagues moving forward.

Huddle Up: Late in the fourth Mack was involved on a pitch from Jacoby Brissett. The QB was credited with the lost fumble, but Mack probably should have had it. The Titans covered up in the red zone and ended up going on to victory as a result. As such, Frank Gore is likely to remain the top dog in the Indy backfield for the remainder of the season.

Huddle Up: Eventually Mack might take over as the No. 1 tailback in Indianapolis, especially if the team is officially eliminated from any postseason hope. However, he averaged just 3.2 yards per carry to 3.0 per tote for Frank Gore, so he'll need to do more if he wants to push the veteran sooner rather than later.

Huddle Up: The Colts used a run-heavy attack with sloppy conditions. The fact Mack had 14 total touches shouldn't lead anyone to believe he is carving into Frank Gore's role, as the veteran had 20 total touches and over 100 scrimmage yards. Mack will need to do more than 2.5 yards per carry to unseat Gore.

Huddle Up: Mack is clearly the future in Indianapolis with only the aging Frank Gore ahead of him on the depth chart. Mack is more explosive and a better option for fantasy owners in PPR formats right now.

Huddle Up: Mack should have been seeing more touches anyway, but Turbin's unfortunate demise has forced Indy's hand. Mack is arguably the Colts' best playmaker on offense not named T.Y. Hilton. Look for him to be more involved in the passing game, too.

Huddle Up: Yikes, so much for the Colts getting Mack more work after his big game in Week 5. Luckily for the rookie and his owners, though, Robert Turbin (elbow) looks like he's going to miss at least a few weeks, so Mack should immediately get more work again as early as next week. It's just hard to trust him as a FLEX outside of the deepest formats after tonight's stinker.

Huddle Up: Mack had nine carries for 91 yards in Week 5, and he is easily the most explosive back the Colts have. He will be a risky start in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans, but the needle is pointing up for the rookie, and he should be owned in all formats.
Posted: 10/12/2017 10:23am ET
Huddle Up: Remember that Mack is only a rookie, so he has just three professional games under his proverbial belt. He has shown flashes of being the future of the Colts' backfield, though, and deserves more opportunities. For now, keep Mack on the bench until he's given more touches on a consistent basis.

Huddle Up: Mack did a good job, including a 35-yard scamper, while veteran Frank Gore was mostly stuck in neutral against his former team. Might it be a sign of things to come? Well, Gore still had 17 total touches to 10 for Mack. It's certainly a situation worth watching heading into Week 6 and beyond, and scooping up Mack isn't a bad idea if he is available off the waiver wire.

Huddle Up: This one was out of hand early, so Mack saw time in place of Frank Gore. Given Gore's age, Mack could be worth a speculative stash, especially in keeper formats.
Posted: 8/19/2017 7:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Mack will enter the season behind Frank Gore and Robert Turbin, but Gore isn't getting any younger, and Mack has the most explosiveness out of the bunch. Mack isn't the worst player to take a flier on with one of your final picks.
Posted: 8/16/2017 6:47am ET
Huddle Up: Mack averaged 6.8 yards per carry with 1,187 yards and 15 scores at South Florida in 2016. He's one to watch in the RB5 spectrum, but he didn't do a lot as a receiver. That could taper his upside.
