Marlon Mack rushed six times for 14 yards in the Colts' Week 15 loss to the Broncos.
Mack failed to corral his lone target in the passing game. It was a disappointing night, as Frank Gore missed a big chunk of the first half with a knee injury. Aside from a few big plays early in the year, Mack hasn't really delivered on his theoretical upside. His 2018 role in the Colts' backfield is to be determined. Dec 14 - 11:54 PM

Date:

Marlon Mack had seven carries for 23 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for 21 yards in Week 14 against Buffalo.

Mack led the Colts in receiving, but had only nine touches. He had their biggest plays in both the run and pass game. With the Colts playing on Thursday night and Frank Gore coming off 36 carries, Mack should have a larger role in Week 15.
Dec 10 - 4:49 PM

Marlon Mack rushed six times for 46 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for eight yards in the Colts' Week 13 loss to the Jaguars.

The Colts offensive line opened up some good holes for both Mack and Frank Gore. Mack showed good vision and explosiveness on a 25-yard run. Mack shouldn't be started in fantasy leagues against the Bills in Week 14.
Dec 3 - 4:41 PM

Marlon Mack rushed four times for 11 yards and caught 2-of-2 targets for 20 yards in the Colts' Week 12 loss to the Titans.

He was out-touched 19 to 6 by Frank Gore. Mack blew a couple of costly blitz pickups before the Colts' bye week and has seen reduced playing time since. On Sunday, Mack lost a third-quarter fumble and wasn't heard from again.
Nov 26 - 4:14 PM

Marlon Mack rushed seven times for seven yards in the Colts' Week 10 loss to the Steelers, adding two receptions for 19 yards.

For the second straight week, Mack was out-snapped, out-touched and out-produced by Frank Gore. Mack is a big-play threat with the ball in his hands, but he's not getting it enough to be taken seriously as a FLEX option in fantasy. Perhaps the Colts will decide to give him a bigger workload coming off their bye in Week 12.
Nov 12 - 5:38 PM

Marlon Mack rushed nine times for 29 yards in the Colts' Week 9 win over the Texans.

Mack had out-snapped Frank Gore each of the past two weeks, but took a backseat to his veteran backfield mate in Houston. The good news is, Mack's nine touches were still in line with what he's been seeing most of the season, and he was not out-snapped by an extreme margin (40-27). He'll continue to offer upside as an RB4/5 who could eventually take over as the Colts' touch leader.
Nov 5 - 5:47 PM

Marlon Mack compiled 27 yards on 11 carries while securing three-of-five targets for 36 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Colts’ Week 8 loss to the Bengals.

He was both out-touched and outplayed by veteran Frank Gore, who had his best game of the season on Sunday (101 yards from scrimmage on 20 touches). Mack’s longest run of the day went for just eight yards and he was stopped behind the line on numerous occasions. Luckily he was able to salvage the day for fantasy owners by breaking off a 24-yard touchdown on a screen pass from Jacoby Brissett late in the third quarter. Mack continues to impress with his big-play ability but consistency and workload concerns persist. He’ll be a flex possibility against the Texans in Week 9.
Oct 29 - 5:56 PM

Marlon Mack played 32-of-67 snaps (48%) Week 7 against the Jaguars.

Frank Gore played just 22. With Robert Turbin out and the Colts down big, Mack handled much of the work in the second half and easily had the biggest snap share of his career. It was not all roses as the rookie dropped a couple passes, but he also went for 34 yards on a dump off, showcasing his big-play ability. Likely to see his role continue to grow, Mack needs to be rostered in all leagues.
Oct 23 - 11:35 AM

Marlon Mack had five carries for 26 yards and caught 4-of-6 targets for 40 yards in Week 7 against Jacksonville.

Mack was the only bright spot for the Colts. His 66 total yards led the team, and he had the biggest play of the game on a 34-yard screen. With Indy tanking, Mack should continue to see more work going forward. Mack has a matchup with the Bengals in Week 8.
Oct 22 - 4:14 PM

Colts OC Rob Chudzinski said Marlon Mack will get more touches with Robert Turbin (elbow) out for the season.

Before Mack truthers get too excited, the coaching staff said all last week they planned to get the rookie more work before he saw two carries against the Titans. Mack almost has to see more touches with Turbin out, however, and Chudzinski said he would have gotten more carries Monday night had a few RPOs played out differently. Mack has a good matchup this week against a Jaguars defense which has given up some long runs, but he will be just a hopeful FLEX until we see him actually get the work.
Oct 19 - 12:44 PM

Marlon Mack rushed two times for 18 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

He failed to catch either of his two targets. Mack exploded for a 22-yard run on his first attempt, but lost four on the next carry in the first quarter and never touched the ball again. He's now had 12 carries go for zero or negative yards. Mack is the definition of boom or bust. The Colts said they wanted to get Mack more involved after his strong Week 5, but it didn't happen at all. Frank Gore was running well and turned 12 touches into 67 yards, while Robert Turbin chipped in 40 yards on seven touches before leaving with an elbow injury in the final quarter. Mack is worth a bench stash, but the Colts love their old guys like Gore, who never gets hurt.
Oct 17 - 12:03 AM

ESPN’s Mike Wells expects Marlon Mack to have an "increased workload" on Monday night against the Titans.

This falls with Chuck Pagano’s plan to get Mack more carries. Mack led Indy to an overtime win last week, adding a big-play threat to an offense that’s lacked splash plays without Andrew Luck. The Colts have misplaced loyalty to Frank Gore, a 34-year-old on an expired deal with three straight sub-4.0 YPC seasons. Mack was a workhorse for star HC Willie Taggart at USF — starting 36-of-36 games — and is miscast in a change-up role. The Colts need to make the move to Mack if they want to get him double-digit starts — a streak he’s had since college. Mack is the future in Indy and deserves to start.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Marlon Mack is not ready to be an every-down or third-down back.

Mack erupted for 91 yards and a touchdown on nine carries against the 49ers, but Pagano said he is still a work in progress after missing some time due to injury. Mack has also been fairly boom-or-bust early in his career, failing to gain more than three yards on 18-of-25 attempts so far this season. Mack will likely see more touches moving forward, but he will need a more defined role to be usable in fantasy lineups.
Oct 12 - 1:01 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano believes Marlon Mack has earned a bigger role.

Pagano doesn't coach the offense -- OC Rob Chudzinski does -- but Pagano certainly has say in playing time. Mack broke loose for 92 yards and a touchdown on ten touches in Sunday's win over San Francisco. "I think it would be wise to try to find ways to get (Marlon Mack) the football and get him more involved," Pagano said Monday. The Colts' backfield continues to trend toward an RBBC.
Oct 9 - 4:41 PM

Marlon Mack rushed nine times for 91 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 5 win over the 49ers.

Mack's 35-yard run in overtime set up the game-winning field goal, but he had numerous impressive runs in this one. A third-and-long one where he willed his way to the first down marker was one of the better runs of the season. It set up Jacoby Brissett's short touchdown scamper. It was Mack's first game back from a multi-week shoulder injury. Frank Gore still led this backfield with 14 carries, but it's very evident Mack just has far more juice and should be getting even more looks. He needs to be added in most formats. Mack won't be startable next week at the Titans.
