Week 15: at New Orleans Saints

All RB vs NO

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Colts rushing offense welcomed back Marlon Mack last week as he made his return from a hand injury that sidelined him in the preceding two games. Mack played 41 percent of the snaps and led the backfield with 13 carries for 38 yards and a touchdown, showing no ill effects from his hand injury. Last week's lack of yardage has to be chalked up to the terrible matchup, as Mack has been productive throughout the season and was coming off a big game with 7.8 yards per rush attempt in Week 11. Mack has been seeing spectacular volume this season also, rushing 18 or more times in 7-of-11 games as the clear top option for this Colts offense that likes to lean on their ground game. It also helps to be running behind one of the league's top offensive lines that continues to play at an elite level week in and week out. The Colts will be in for another tough test this week against a strong New Orleans Saints run defense. While the matchup is slightly better than last week, the Saints still are one of the top run defenses in football, giving up just 94.2 rushing yards per game (5th-fewest) and the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game (non-PPR) to opposing running backs. Even considering the near 100-point shootout they competed in last week, the Saints still only allowed one rushing touchdown and 129 rushing yards to 49ers running backs as this was a rare game in which game flow was not on the side of the Saints. Only two running backs have crossed the 70-yard mark against this team while the highest rushing yard total amassed against them was back in Week 1 by Carlos Hyde with 83 yards. Both edge defenders Cameron Jordan and Marcus Davenport should be a tall test for the strong tackles on this Colts offensive line. Saints defensive backs have played very well against the run also, making it tough for teams to find an edge on the outside or bust big plays in the second level. All in all, even with one of the top offensive lines in football and strong volume likely to come, the Marlon Mack should be in for a challenge on the road against the Saints in this one.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 13 vs TEN (11 / 47 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)

Jordan Wilkins handled the majority of the carries after Johnathan WIlliams' early struggles. Wilkins bounced a run to the outside for a 15 yard gain. Wilkins got a nice block from Pascal on the edge on the play. Wilkins dropped a check down from Brissett over the middle. Wilkins caught a pair of check downs from Brissett and totaled 9 yards. Wilkins picked up 11 yards on a toss play with Quenton Nelson pulling.

2019 Week 2 vs TEN (5 / 82 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)

Jordan Wilkins rushed for more yards than Marlon Mack on one fourth of the carries. In fact Wilkins topped Mack's yardage total on a single run of 55 yards. Wilkins gained the edge off left tackle for a 15 yard gain showing nice burst. Wilkins got a number of nice blocks including a key block from Braden Smith to break WIlkins into the open field for a 55 yard run. Wilkins showed his speed and physicality on the play and seemed disappointed he didn't score after going out at the 4 yard line. It remains to be seen if this performance will earn Wilkins more carries but for now he is at the very least the clear back up to own if Mack gets injured.
