Huddle Up: Wilkins split the carries down the middle with Marlon Mack, who was back from an injury. He was much more effective than Mack, however, averaging 6.1 yards per carry to just 3.4 YPC for Mack. As long as there is a split of the carries, though, both players have a rather limited ceiling as far as fantasy appeal. The Colts travel to meet the Eagles in Week 3.

Huddle Up: Wilkins still has a role in the offense even with Marlon Mack back from injury, so owners should monitor the situation. Mack would receive a bigger role if Wilkins misses time and would be at least a flex option.

Huddle Up: Wilkins didn't do much, averaging just 2.9 yards per carry. He was getting a bulk of the work with Marlon Mack (hamstring) on the shelf. Wilkins had 17 total touches to 12 for rookie Nyheim Hines and just two for Christine Michael. As long as Mack is shelved, Wilkins is the Indy back to own for fantasy purposes. However, he is more of a low-end RB3 or flex option in deeper leagues heading into Week 2 at Washington.

Huddle Up: Wilkins likely will share time with Nyheim Hines and Christine Michael but may be the main ball carrier for the Colts in Week 1. Owners can consider Wilkins as a flex option in most leagues.

Huddle Up: It's not the type of performance that figures to put a ton of heat on likely starter Marlon Mack, but it has been assumed for some time the Colts would be utilizing a committee backfield. Wilkins did himself no favors by fumbling near the goal line, although the play resulted in a touchdown anyway when the ball bounced nicely into the waiting hands of Chester Rogers. Wilkins should be considered no more than a middling RB4 at this point.

Huddle Up: Mack is expected to be back for the opener, so Wilkins isn't someone to pin your fantasy hopes upon. He is also still jockeying with rookie Nyheim Hines, as well as veterans Christine Michael and Branden Oliver for a meaningful role. Still, he is a name worth filing away if he wins a job on the 53-man roster and Mack goes down again at some point during the season.

Huddle Up: The Colts are heading to a backfield committee, and with the roles up for grabs, Wilkins is at least worth stashing for now.
