IND RB Marlon Mack - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 1 at Jacksonville Jaguars
Marlon Mack is a talented runner, and he put together his first 1,000-yard season last year with 1,091 yards on 247 carries. He also scored eight touchdowns and now has 18 over two years as a starter. Mack has also missed six games during that span with injuries and is starting to get an injury-prone label. But the biggest concerns with Mack are his lack of production in the passing game (just 17 targets last year) and the presence of second-round rookie Jonathan Taylor. Mack is in a contract year and could ball out, but he’s more likely to be in a timeshare this season with Taylor, and a timeshare that could get shorter and shorter for him if Taylor looks as dynamic as he did in college. This week, even in a great matchup, think of Mack as a low-end RB3 option in most leagues, with some potential to produce with the touches he gets, but with the risk of losing work to Taylor.
