Scouting report

IND RB Marlon Mack - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Jacksonville Jaguars

Marlon Mack had a nice game against the Panthers last week in a lopsided victory. He had 16 carries and two receptions for 101 total yards from scrimmage and a touchdown. Mack has been mostly steady throughout the season when healthy and eclipsed 1,000 yards for the first time in his career last week.

Mack has a great matchup in the finale. Only the Panthers rank lower in aFPA to opposing running backs this year and the Jaguars look to be disengaged in a lost season. Mack has a high floor with his workload as the main back for the Colts and he should be considered a safe RB2 option to finish out the season, particularly in non-PPR leagues.

IND RB Marlon Mack - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Carolina Panthers

Marlon Mack struggled along with the rest of the Colts offense last week against the Saints, gaining just 19 yards on 11 carries in a blowout loss. Mack is still the bellcow in Indianapolis, but the team was completely inept against the dominant Saints. That shouldn’t happen every week, and Mack should be a high-floor option for the remainder of the season due to his likely workload. He’s averaged 18 carries per game this season.

The Panthers are dead last in aFPA to opposing running backs this season and just gave up 133 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the ground to Chris Carson a week ago. If Mack gets a full workload and the Colts can stay competitive enough to keep from abandoning the run, he has significant upside in a great matchup. Start him as a borderline RB1 option this week.

IND RB Marlon Mack - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

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.

IND RB Marlon Mack - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Marlon Mack was a semi-bright spot in a forgettable loss to the Dolphins last week, gaining 82 yards on 19 carries and a reception. Mack has only found the end zone three times this season, but he’s averaging 21.2 touches per game, giving him a high floor every game.

Fantasy owners should have Mack active this week as a fringe RB1 against the Jaguars. It should be a tough, grind-it-out game between two strong rushing attacks and Jacksonville ranks 21st in aFPA to opposing running backs. Mack is a safe option and he should be in all fantasy lineups every week.

IND RB Marlon Mack - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs. Miami Dolphins

Marlon Mack had 89 yards on 21 carries against the Steelers last week as the Colts lost a tight game that ultimately came down to a missed field goal at the end. Mack has been pretty steady all year, and while he’s only found the end zone three times this season, he’s averaging 21.25 touches and 93.4 yards per game, giving him a high floor each week as a solid RB2 option.

This week, Mack has RB1 upside against the Dolphins who rank dead last in aFPA to opposing running backs this year. While the Miami offense has shown a little life in recent weeks, making scores less lop-sided, they’re still struggling to compete on defense and have lost key players on both sides of the ball to injuries. Mack is a must-start this week in a great matchup and should be active in all league formats.

IND RB Marlon Mack - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at Pittsburgh Steelers

Marlon Mack had a nice game against the Broncos last week as the Colts eked out a close win in a low-scoring affair. He finished with 76 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries and he added a 14-yard reception to his totals. Mack has been steady for much of the season, particularly when it comes to workload. He’s had double-digit touches in every game this year, with only one game with less than 18 total touches.

This week, Mack faces a Steelers defense that has actually been pretty stout against the run. They rank fifth in aFPA to opposing running backs and just two weeks ago they held Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler to a combined 32 yards on 13 carries. The Colts should do an effective job keeping the game close, so Mack should have a high enough floor to warrant RB2 consideration in most leagues, but this definitely isn’t the week to expect huge numbers from the Colts’ bell cow.

IND RB Marlon Mack - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 vs. Denver Broncos

Marlon Mack had only 56 total yards from scrimmage last week against the Texans, but he caught three passes and carried the ball 18 times. His workload makes him a solid starter in any given week, although it’d be nice to see him find the end zone more. He has only two touchdowns this season, despite averaging 21.5 total touches per game.

This week, Mack faces a Denver defense that has been fantastic against the pass but ranks only 17th in aFPA to opposing running backs this year. Expect the Colts to lean on him once again as they try to dictate the game by emphasizing the run, making him a solid RB2 option in all league formats. Mack is a little more appealing in standard leagues, as he’s only caught 10 passes all year, but he should put up numbers in any format.
