Summary

Don't expect Marlon Mack to be the Colts Week 1 starter, despite what you might believe about Frank Gore fading away into the sunset. The Colts will ride Gore until it's time for him step down. It's not yet time, plus Mack needs to learn more about the position before the Colts rush him into consistent game action. Mack's game has been compared to Tevin Coleman. He has excellent speed, especially his burst on one-cut runs. Like Coleman, his receiving skills are above average and he's capable of turning the corner when it's there. His short-yardage game needs improvement, which sometimes can lead him to forcing plays to the outside where positive yardage isn't expected. He also has challenges with ball security, which could keep his involvement on offense to a minimum, especially if Gore is able and healthy. Temper your expectations on the young rookie this year. His fantasy value is minimal unless an unforeseen injury puts him into the limelight, which even then, consistent production isn't a foregone conclusion. (May 17)
