Week 7: vs Buffalo Bills

All RB vs BUF

FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Colts run game finally showed a flicker of life last Sunday. After 5 weeks spent near the bottom of the league, averaging just 3.53 yards per carry from running backs, Marlon Mack's return provided a genuine spark. Mack tallied 89 yards on just 12 carries, ripping off runs of 14, 25, 11, and 9 yards against the Jets' solid run defense. The front line remains a concern - it's a relatively soft unit, built more for pass protection than run blocking (though not especially good at either). Going forward, the team could definitely use continued health and explosiveness from Mack, who looks markedly more talented and prepared than rookie Jordan Wilkins. But that could be a tall order for Mack, who plodded to just 3.85 per rush last year. Most likely, the Colts will keep digging for productivity from Mack and change-of-pace rookie Nyheim Hines. It's anyone's guess as to what they'll find, but Sunday was at least encouraging. The Buffalo run defense is showing definite improvement. After a 2017 to forget, in which they allowed 12 different backs to run for 70 yards or more, this year's version has tightened considerably. Only one runner (Austin Ekeler) has topped 65 yards against them, and they've held the likes of Melvin Gordon (9 carries for 28 yards), Dion Lewis (12 for 34), Alex Collins (7 for 13), and Lamar Miller (15 for 46) firmly in check. Still, they've been worked over a few times as well. Speedy, one-cut runners tend to give them fits, thanks to subpar linebackers who often wind up chasing from out of position. Missed tackles have also been an issue down the field, and all in all, this is still a ripe matchup for chunk runs, if not dominant fantasy days.

2018 Week 3 vs PHI (6 / 19 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 1 / 0 rec)

Jordan Wilkins struggled to find room to run against the Eagles. Wilkins is clearly behind Nyheim Hines in passing situations but is the runner the Colts trust most between the tackles.

Jordan WIlkins was in on the Colts' second offensive snap and took a carry 11 yards off right tackle. Wilkins burst for 18 yards as the Colts ran their four minute offense running behind Ryan Hewitt.
