From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 7): Mack came in a game time decision and carried the load as a big part of an upset win at Kansas City. He'll get a week of rest to mend and then be installed as a strong everyweek RB2 for fantasy teams going forward.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 5 vs KC (29 / 132 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 16 / 0 rec)

Marlon Mack was the engine of the Colts offense. Mack kept the Colts offense on schedule with consistent gains and a few big plays. Mack exploited the middle of the Chiefs defense and found big holes running inside. Mack showed excellent patience and made a nice jump cut to find a crease through the middle of the Chiefs defense for an impressive 30 yards gain. Quenton Nelson helped clear the lane for Mack on the play. The run set up a 1 yard touchdown run by Jacoby Brissett. Mack found another crease behind Nelson and burst for 11 yards up the middle. Mack found a huge hole right up the middle and sprinted up field for 11 more yards. Mack caught a check down from Brissett and showed off his footwork to evade a defender pick up 11 yards and set up 4th and 1. Mack converted the 4th down with a physical run off right tackle. With 5 minutes remaining Mack received a hand off on 6 consecutive plays totaling 21 yards to help the Colts burn clock.

2019 Week 4 vs OAK (11 / 39 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Marlon Mack saw a limited workload thanks in large part to the Colts trailing the majority of the game. Mack produced mixed results on his limited carries either getting dropped for a big loss or picking up good yardage. Mack was dropped for a 5 yard loss on his second carry thanks to a missed blocking assignment. Mack picked up 18 yards off left tackle on his next carry. The Colts did a great job sealing the edge for Mack on the play. Mack again got the edge on the Oakland defense and escaped outside for 14 yards. Mack was dropped for a 4 yard loss again being met in the backfield by an unblocked defender.

2019 Week 3 vs ATL (16 / 74 / 1 rush, 3 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)

Marlon Mack played very well and looked healthy despite being questionable with injury. Mack showed he is clearly the Colts lead back with Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins in complementary roles. Mack touched the ball on the Colts' first 4 offensive plays and totaled 25 yards with those touches. Mack found his way through heavy traffic at the line of scrimmage and escaped to the second level for a 14 yard run. Mack had a nice 9 yard carry in the red zone where he refused to go down on first contact. Mack received a hand off from the 1 yard line but was dropped for a loss. Marlon Mack beat 3 defenders to the edge with stiff arms and his speed to score a 4 yard touchdown. It was a great individual effort by Mack. Mack burst into the open field for 26 yards to help seal the victory for the Colts. Mack got a key block from Quenton Nelson on the play.

2019 Week 2 vs TEN (20 / 51 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)

Marlon Mack struggled to find room to run against the Titans. Mack was frequently stopped at the line of scrimmage or for minimal gain. It seemed like the Titans were keying on Mack in an effort to make Brissett score points and throw the ball. Mack had a 22 yard carry negated by a holding penalty. Mack slipped out of two arm tackles running inside for a tough 10 yards. Mack made a 9 yard catch on a check down from Brissett. Mack had a pair of impressive carries back to back. First Mack picked up 9 yards running inside through heavy traffic. Then was hit behind the line of scrimmage on 3rd and 1 but still managed to convert. Mack was outrushed by Jordan Wilkins who looked great on his limited opportunities but I would expect Mack to continue to see the majority of the work.

2019 Week 1 vs LAC (25 / 174 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Marlon Mack had a huge second half against the Chargers. Mack picked up 25 yard running a sweep on the first play of the second half. Mack got excellent blocking on the play and showed good patience before exploding into the open field. A few plays later Mack made a nice cutback at the line of scrimmage to find a crease for 10 yards. Mack followed excellent blocking into the open field and slipped two ankle tackles on his way to outracing the defense for a 63 yard touchdown. Mack got an excellent block from Quenten Nelson on the play. Mack converted a two point attempt with a run right up the gut.

Colts | Marlon Mack a game-time decision (Sun Oct 6, 09:19 AM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (ankle) is considered a game-time decision for Week 5's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Our View: The Colts could be forced to abandon the run early in the game, so Mack isn't a great play anyway. Nyheim Hines could be an excellent PPR play if Mack is out, and maybe even if he is in with Jacoby Brissett likely having to throw a lot tonight.

Colts | Questionable tag for Marlon Mack (Fri Oct 4, 05:54 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 4, but is listed as questionable for Week 5.

Our View: Mack's full practice designation creates a lot of optimism that he will play Sunday night. If he can go, he'll have a chance to run against a weak Chiefs run defense, but for how long before the Colts have to abandon the run because they've fallen behind at Arrowhead.
