Pagano: Colts RB Marlon Mack a 'work in progress'

Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said that since RB Marlon Mack missed "some time" that he's not "ready to be an every-down or third-down back" yet and considers him a "work in progress."

Fantasy Impact:

Well, that is certainly not music to fantasy owners' ears hoping to start Mack this week. Mack is averaging 4.48 yards per carry (YPC), which is considerably better than Frank Gore's YPC of 3.2. Coming off a Week 5 performance that saw him record a season-high of 91 yards on 9 carries, we have Mack ranked as our No. 38 RB in standard leagues this week.

We knew this was coming, but Colts head coach Chuck Pagano made the news official today, announcing that QB Andrew Luck will miss another game.

Fantasy Impact:

We have Jacoby Brissett ranked as our No. 14 QB for the week in what is an outstanding matching against a Titans defense allowing 20.4 fantasy points to the quarterback position—third-most in the league. Brissett is a fantastic streaming option in 1QB leagues and is a safe QB2 in 2QB and Superflex leagues this week.

Titans QB Marcus Mariota 'feeling good'

Following the team's Wednesday practice, Titans QB Marcus Mariota said he hopes to return to the field this week against the Colts.

“I feel a lot better,” Mariota relayed to reporters. “I have to give a lot of credit to the athletic staff, the training staff here. They’ve done a great job, and I am feeling good.”

Fantasy Impact:

Mariota responded with "absolutely" when asked by reporters if he feels good about playing this week. While he doesn't have the final say in the matter, it's a good sign how optimistic Mariota feels about playing this week. The Titans and fantasy players sure could use him. If Mariota does play he'll return in time to play in one of the best matchups of the week versus a Colts team allowing the second-most fantasy points to the quarterback position at a clip of 20.8 points per game.

Colts QB Andrew Luck ruled out for Week 6

Monday, October 9, 2017, 7:20pm - [Full Article]

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano today said quarterback Andrew Luck will not make his 2017 season debut next Monday night against the Tennessee Titans.

Luck, who underwent surgery to his throwing shoulder in January, last week practiced with the team for the first time all year in a limited role on Wednesday and Friday, using Thursday as a rehab-only day.

While Pagano said he was encouraged by Luck’s progress, he said today the team is yet to completely formulate Luck’s practice plan for this week. The coach will meet with team doctors later in the day to determine where the quarterback is in his recovery, and then figure out how to best work him into the rotation.

Fantasy Impact:

Luck told reporters last week’s practices were a huge step forward for him, and that he was looking forward to continuing his daily improvement. Reports say Luck won't play before the end of October.

Colts HC Chuck Pagano: "I think it would be wise to try to find ways to get (Marlon Mack) the football and get him more involved."

Related players: Frank Gore

Fantasy Impact:

Mack busted off a nice TD run and nearly had another one which was over turned last week. It looks like an increase in time will cut into Gore's snaps. Mack had 92 yards on just 10 touches.

Titans HC Mike Mularkey says QB Marcus Mariota could return Week 6

Tennessean - [Full Article]

Could Marcus Mariota miss multiple games?

The Titans' franchise quarterback could return from a strained hamstring to face the Colts (2-3) on "Monday Night Football" next week at Nissan Stadium, coach Mike Mularkey said Sunday.

"You can listen to NFL Network or you can listen to me," Mularkey said after the Titans' 16-10 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium. "When I say day to day, I tell you like it is."

Fantasy Impact:

Mularkey disputed a report from NFL Network that Mariota originally was expected to need two to four weeks to recover from an injury he suffered Oct. 1 at Houston. The bad news is, as the story said, the Titans play Week 6 on Monday night, which means owners will need a backup plan, or will have to risk starting him based on information that comes out this week.
