Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines is still expected to see his normal role in the passing game in Week 12 against the Houston Texans, and not an increase in work despite the loss of RB Marlon Mack (hand).
Huddle Up: Hines will see his regular work on passing downs, but it appears Jonathan Williams and/or Jordan Wilkins will be counted upon as the workhorse back for carries.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hand) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 20, and has been ruled out for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Jordan Wilkins, Nyheim Hines and Jonathan Williams likely will all receive touches this week, but Hines probably will have the most fantasy value out of the three because of his ability to be a receiver out of the backfield. Hines can be considered a flex option in most leagues, while Wilkins could be a flex option in deeper standard leagues.

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hand) underwent surgery Monday, Nov. 18, to repair his fractured hand and has been ruled out for Week 12, according to head coach Frank Reich. Reich said there is no timetable for Mack's return.
Huddle Up: Mack probably will miss a few weeks because of the injury, but fantasy players should keep an eye on the situation. Jonathan Williams could receive the start with Mack and Jordan Wilkins dealing with injuries. Williams could be a flex option in standard leagues. Nyheim Hines will also receive a bigger role in the offense and can be a flex option in all leagues.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hand) did not participate in practice Monday, Nov. 18. The Colts did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.
Huddle Up: Mack is expected to miss at least one game because of the injury, so Jonathan Williams and Nyheim Hines may receive most of the work at running back if Mack and Jordan Wilkins are not able to play. Hines likely will have more fantasy value than Williams but both could be flex options in leagues.

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hand) is not expected to play in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 21. He'll see a specialist this week to figure out how long he'll be out.
Huddle Up: Jordan Wilkins could be the featured back against the Houston Texans. It's not a good matchup, but Wilkins is at least worth a flex play.

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hand) suffered a fractured right hand during the Week 11 game, according to a source. He is scheduled to meet with specialists to determine the severity of the injury.
Huddle Up: Mack probably will miss at least one game, so fantasy players will need to monitor the situation. Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Williams are candidates to receive most of the carries in the running game, while Nyheim Hines should also receive some work out of the backfield. Hines can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues, while Wilkins or Williams could be a flex option in standard leagues.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (hand) suffered a hand injury during the Week 11 game and will not return.
Huddle Up: Mack was playing well in the game before the injury, so fantasy players will need to keep an eye on the situation. Nyheim Hines, Jonathan Williams and Jordan Wilkins would be candidates to see more playing time if Mack misses multiple weeks and could have fantasy value.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed 19 times for 74 yards and caught one pass for eight yards in a 16-12 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 10.
Huddle Up: The Indianapolis offense struggled to move the ball with Brian Hoyer under center, but Mack still saw his usual workload. His heavy usage rate gives him one of the safer floors among RB2 options.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack faces the Miami Dolphins in Week 10, and the Dolphins are allowing 150.8 rushing yards per game, the second most in the NFL.
Huddle Up: The Colts haven't been shy about leaning on Mack, and he currently ranks second in the NFL with 19.9 rushing attempts per game. At worst, he should be a high-end RB2 against a soft Miami run defense.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack rushed 21 times for 89 yards in Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Huddle Up: Mack did a pretty good job despite the fact the Colts were down to backup quarterback Brian Hoyer following Jacoby Brissett's knee injury early in the game. He should still be a decent low-end RB1 or must-start RB2 in all fantasy leagues against the lowly Miami Dolphins in Week 10.
