    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) is considered week-to-week because of a hamstring injury, according to head coach Frank Reich.

    Huddle Up: The Colts likely will take things slow with Mack because it is a hamstring injury. Owners should monitor the situation because Mack probably will lead the team in carries in 2018. Mack can be considered a No. 3 receiver if he is healthy for Week 1.

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) is expected to miss a few weeks with a 'manageable hamstring strain,' according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, who adds the team is still awaiting final confirmation.

    Huddle Up: Robert Turbin got a bit of early run for the Colts after Mack left Thursday, but he will be serving a suspension to begin the season. It's very likely Indianapolis will give rookies Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines some more opportunities as the preseason progresses, and those two players should be the ones owners are targeting in fantasy drafts after Mack. The Colts' backfield figures to be a committee attack all season long.

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hamstring) exited the preseason opener against the Seattle Seahawks with a hamstring injury Thursday, Aug. 9, and won't return.

    Huddle Up: Mack was expected to be the starter for the Colts, and if the injury turns out to be serious, Robert Turbin, Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines could all see more touches. Thanks to his pass-catching prowess, Hines would likely have the easiest path to fantasy relevance.

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack has the chance to rush for 1,500 yards this season, in the opinion of owner Jim Irsay.

    Huddle Up: Mack likely is the leading candidate for the starting running back job and could receive a solid amount of carries during the season. He may not rush for 1,500 yards like Irsay indicated but could be a No. 3 running back in most standard leagues.

  • Posted: 7/25/2018 1:32pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack said he played last season with a shoulder injury he suffered last training camp but has recovered from offseason surgery and is ready for camp this season,

    Huddle Up: Mack appears to be the leading candidate for the starting running back job and should see a lot of work during the preseason. He posted decent numbers in 2017 despite the injury and has a chance to be a valuable fantasy option if he starts. Owners in most leagues could consider him a No. 2 or No. 3 back.

  • Posted: 5/7/2018 9:00pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack 'remains the favorite to slide into the starting role' left behind by Frank Gore and 'assume whatever the Colts consider a No. 1 running back in 2018,' according to the Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer.

    Huddle Up: The Colts did not give Mack any true competition in the form of an early-round running back in the draft and have yet to sign a free agent who could push him. While telling The Star that Mack needs to improve in pass pro, general manager Chris Ballard also said 'everything with Marlon was better than I expected, everything.' Indianapolis will probably open the season with a committee backfield, but Mack should be given a shot to run away with the job if he starts fast. He's a high-upside, high-end flex option for now.

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (shoulder) played with a torn labrum in 2017, according to general manager Chris Ballard. Mack underwent offseason shoulder surgery to repair the tear and expects to be fully healthy by training camp.

    Huddle Up: The Colts did very little to address the running back position in the draft or free agency, so this is Mack's backfield to lead despite head coach Frank Reich suggesting his team doesn't have a starting running back right now. At the very least, Mack figures to nearly double his 93 carries from a season ago, which would make him a strong flex option and possible RB2 given his big-play ability.

  • Posted: 4/28/2018 7:01pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack is not the clear starter, according to head coach Frank Reich. 'I'm fine with running back by committee,' Reich said.

    Huddle Up: Mack should still be considered the frontrunner to start, but he could share touches with Nyheim Hines and others. Mack looks like a RB3 candidate at this point.

  • Posted: 4/13/2018 8:45pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack said he is working with the team nutritionist to add a few pounds this offseason in order to handle more carries.

    Huddle Up: If the Colts don't add another back early in the draft, Mack could be given a chance to lead the backfield in 2018. In that scenario, he would be worth grabbing as a RB3.

  • Posted: 12/23/2017 4:39pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed for 17 yards on four carries against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16. He also caught two passes for 37 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Mack has received a limited amount of touches during games this season and has not been a big factor for fantasy owners. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues next week against the Houston Texans.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 2:18pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed for 23 yards on seven carries against the Buffalo Bills in Week 14. He also caught two passes for 21 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Mack has been receiving a handful of touches during games and probably will receive a similar workload next week against the Denver Broncos. He probably can be avoided in most leagues moving forward.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 3:12pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed four times for 11 yards and he added two receptions for 20 yards in Week 12 against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Late in the fourth Mack was involved on a pitch from Jacoby Brissett. The QB was credited with the lost fumble, but Mack probably should have had it. The Titans covered up in the red zone and ended up going on to victory as a result. As such, Frank Gore is likely to remain the top dog in the Indy backfield for the remainder of the season.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 3:13pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed nine times for 29 yards in Week 9 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Eventually Mack might take over as the No. 1 tailback in Indianapolis, especially if the team is officially eliminated from any postseason hope. However, he averaged just 3.2 yards per carry to 3.0 per tote for Frank Gore, so he'll need to do more if he wants to push the veteran sooner rather than later.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 6:17pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed 11 times for 27 yards in Week 8 against the Cincinnati Bengals and he added three catches for 36 yards and a score.

    Huddle Up: The Colts used a run-heavy attack with sloppy conditions. The fact Mack had 14 total touches shouldn't lead anyone to believe he is carving into Frank Gore's role, as the veteran had 20 total touches and over 100 scrimmage yards. Mack will need to do more than 2.5 yards per carry to unseat Gore.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 3:46pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed five times for 26 yards in Week 7 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added four catches for 40 yards on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Mack is clearly the future in Indianapolis with only the aging Frank Gore ahead of him on the depth chart. Mack is more explosive and a better option for fantasy owners in PPR formats right now.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 10:19am ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack will be given more opportunities due to the loss of RB Robert Turbin (elbow), according to offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski. Chudzinski specifically noted the two-minute drill as a time when the Colts need to give Mack the ball.

    Huddle Up: Mack should have been seeing more touches anyway, but Turbin's unfortunate demise has forced Indy's hand. Mack is arguably the Colts' best playmaker on offense not named T.Y. Hilton. Look for him to be more involved in the passing game, too.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 10:21pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack received just two carries, turning that pair of rush attempts into 18 yards in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, versus the Tennessee Titans. He also failed to haul in either of his two targets through the air.

    Huddle Up: Yikes, so much for the Colts getting Mack more work after his big game in Week 5. Luckily for the rookie and his owners, though, Robert Turbin (elbow) looks like he's going to miss at least a few weeks, so Mack should immediately get more work again as early as next week. It's just hard to trust him as a FLEX outside of the deepest formats after tonight's stinker.

  • Posted: 10/14/2017 6:56pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack would have had a bigger role in the offense earlier in the year if not for some injuries, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. 'I think it'd be wise to try to find ways to get him the football and get him more involved,' Pagano said. 'When he gets outside on the perimeter he's dangerous, and we all saw that.'

    Huddle Up: Mack had nine carries for 91 yards in Week 5, and he is easily the most explosive back the Colts have. He will be a risky start in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans, but the needle is pointing up for the rookie, and he should be owned in all formats.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 10:23am ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack is not being hurried into a featured role, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Mack has only played in three games this season due to a shoulder injury and Pagano doesn't want to rush him into something he's potentially not ready for.

    Huddle Up: Remember that Mack is only a rookie, so he has just three professional games under his proverbial belt. He has shown flashes of being the future of the Colts' backfield, though, and deserves more opportunities. For now, keep Mack on the bench until he's given more touches on a consistent basis.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 7:34pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed nine times for 91 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers while adding one catch for two yards.

    Huddle Up: Mack did a good job, including a 35-yard scamper, while veteran Frank Gore was mostly stuck in neutral against his former team. Might it be a sign of things to come? Well, Gore still had 17 total touches to 10 for Mack. It's certainly a situation worth watching heading into Week 6 and beyond, and scooping up Mack isn't a bad idea if he is available off the waiver wire.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 8:06pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack had 10 carries for 24 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for 21 yards in a 46-9 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 1. He also lost a fumble that resulted in a safety.

    Huddle Up: This one was out of hand early, so Mack saw time in place of Frank Gore. Given Gore's age, Mack could be worth a speculative stash, especially in keeper formats.

  • Posted: 8/19/2017 7:16pm ET

    Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack had five carries for 45 yards and two catches for 14 yards in a 24-19 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the preseason Saturday, Aug. 19.

    Huddle Up: Mack will enter the season behind Frank Gore and Robert Turbin, but Gore isn't getting any younger, and Mack has the most explosiveness out of the bunch. Mack isn't the worst player to take a flier on with one of your final picks.
