Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack will not play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8 against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Mack will be rested to prevent an injury in a meaningless exhibition game. He should be drafted a low-end RB1 or high-end RB2 in all fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. He'll be the bellcow in Indy as long as he can stay healthy.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed for at least 115 yards in five games last season but was also held to 50 yards or less in six games.
Huddle Up: Mack is in line to receive most of the carries in the running game this season and should have success behind a solid offensive line. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in a majority of fantasy leagues.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack is being viewed by head coach Frank Reich as the team's workhorse in the backfield, according to Joel A. Erickson of the Indianapolis Star.
Huddle Up: Mack rushed for 908 yards and nine touchdowns last season while adding 103 yards and one touchdown as a receiver. Nyheim Hines should handle the majority of third-down duties in 2019, but Mack could still return plenty of value as a high-end RB2.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack can 'carry the load' and 'play on all three downs,' according to general manager Chris Ballard.
Huddle Up: It's not as if the Colts have another option at the moment that can legitimately push Mack for every-down work, although Nyheim Hines was drafted last spring to operate in a satellite-back role and will probably continue to function in that way. Still, it's hard to ignore what Mack did when he was finally healthy last year, carrying 218 times for 1,068 yards and 10 touchdowns in 13 games (including the playoffs). He carries RB1 upside into 2019 but will probably come with an RB2 price tag.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hip) pranced nine times for 51 yards, missing out on his only target in a divisional playoff loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 12. He did leave early with a hip injury.
Huddle Up: Mack's year ended in disappointment, but he took the league by storm en route to over 1,000 yards from scrimmage and 10 total touchdowns in only 12 games. He has RB1 upside, but it's better to draft him as an RB2.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hip) suffered a hip injury during the Divisional Round playoff game and will not return.
Huddle Up: Mack was fairly quiet against the Kansas City Chiefs but played well during the second half of the season with three 100-yard games and six touchdowns in the previous five games. His role next season will be determined by what the team does during the offseason, but he can be a No. 2 running back if he keeps the starting job.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack delivers 'body blows' in the run game in addition to having big-play speed, according to head coach Frank Reich, and QB Andrew Luck said Mack has matured as an all-around back.
Huddle Up: Mack has emerged as a legitimate lead back this season, and after scoring five times in the final four regular season games, he ran for 148 yards and a score in a win over Houston in the wild-card round. Mack should remain a strong fantasy option in playoff contests, and he looks like a high-end RB2 candidate for 2019.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed for 148 yards and one touchdown on 24 carries against the Houston Texans in the Wild Card playoff game. He also caught two passes for six yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Mack has rushed for at least 100 yards in three of the last four games and has scored at least one touchdown in each of the last five games. He should be a starting option in all leagues next week.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack carried the ball 25 times for 119 yards and a touchdown against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Dec. 30. His three receptions went for minus-one yard.
Huddle Up: Mack finishes the season with five scores in his final four games, including at least one in each contest. Whether he'll be the team's starter next year remains to be seen, but he looked much improved behind Indianapolis' talented offensive line. Mack played in just one of Indy's matchups with Houston, rushing for 33 yards and a score, and figures to face some tough sledding this weekend.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed 12 times for 34 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for four yards in a 28-27 win over the New York Giants in Week 16.
Huddle Up: The Colts fell behind quickly and had to abandon the run in this one, and it continued a stretch of inconsistent efforts from Mack. He still has RB2 upside, but he will be more of a touchdown-dependent flex option against a solid Tennessee defense in the finale.
