Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (Achilles) 'deserves a good contract,' Colts general manager Chris Ballard said Thursday, Jan. 14, but added that he doesn't know if the team will be in position to offer the pending free agent one this offseason.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (Achilles') will miss the rest of the season after an MRI revealed a torn Achilles'.
Huddle Up: Jonathan Taylor was drafted in fantasy as an elite RB3 or a low-end RB2 with the expectation he would unseat Mack at some point. So he will see a slight boost up to that RB2 area. Nyheim Hines should be picked up as an RB5 and handcuff to Taylor.

Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 1 game and is considered questionable to return.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players should know more about Mack's status in the next day or two. Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines would share playing time if Mack is sidelined for an extended period of time. Taylor would be at least a flex option in standard leagues, while Hines would be a decent flex option in point-per-reception leagues.
