Colts running backs coach Tom Rathman suggested that Indianapolis will rotate running backs frequently in 2018.
“We’re going to play a lot of running backs,” running backs coach Tom Rathman says. “You’re not going to have a bell cow, so to speak, a guy that’s going to carry the load. We’ve got a lot of different styles and I think anytime you have a lot of different styles, you want to try to utilize that. So you run one of the players with a certain style and then you change it up the next series and it keeps the defense on their toes. So that’s what we would anticipate doing.”
This fits with head coach Frank Reich's history as a coordinator the last four years with both the Eagles and Chargers, and takes some of the shine off of Marlon Mack's eighth-round ADP. Receiver-turned-running back Nyheim Hines appears to be a much better value in round 12. With Andrew Luck back in the fold, you can expect the back who can pass block the best to receive the most playing time.
