Week 15 at New Orleans Saints
Marlon Mack returned from a hand injury last week and found the end zone, though he was limited to just 2.9 yards per carry on 13 rushing attempts. Mack is the unquestioned lead back for the Colts when healthy and the Buccaneers have held some great backs to limited production this season, so fantasy owners shouldn’t worry about the 2.9 average in one game. If he’s healthy, he remains one of the higher-floor options, particularly in standard formats.
This week, Mack faces a Saints defense that ranks eighth in aFPA to opposing running backs, so it won’t be easy for him to produce. Without the benefit of activity in the passing game, Mack shouldn’t be counted on for PPR production in shallow leagues, and we have him ranked as an RB3 option in a tough matchup.
