Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (Achilles) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Sept. 16. The team also signed practice squad WR Daurice Fountain to their active roster. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack (Achilles) will officially miss the rest of the 2020 season after suffering a torn Achilles in the Week 1 loss to the Jaguars. Mack had four carries for 26 yards and three catches for 30 yards before leaving with the injury in the second quarter. It comes after he rushed for 1,091 yards in a breakout 2019 season. Mack has never played a full 16-game slate in his four years in the NFL, and he's set to become a free agent in 2021. Nyheim Hines and rookie Jonathan Taylor each had 15 touches on Sunday, with Taylor earning 89 scrimmage yards and Hines going for 73 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns while getting a lot of red-zone action. Hines will be one of the hottest waiver pickups heading into Week 2, while Taylor will basically be a must-start RB2 from here on out.
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (Achilles') will miss the rest of the season after an MRI revealed a torn Achilles'.
Fantasy Spin: 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 (Achilles) left the Week 1 game early, and the team fears that Mack suffered a torn Achilles tendon, according to sources.
Fantasy Spin: The team will update Mack's situation in the near future. He will miss the rest of the season if he is diagnosed with a torn Achilles. Jonathan Taylor likely would take over the starting role with Nyheim Hines also seeing solid playing time at running back. Taylor would be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues, while Hines could be a flex option in leagues.
The Indianapolis Colts fear that Marlon Mack suffered a torn Achilles on Sunday. If so, his 2020 season will be over. Nyheim Hines took on a larger role with Mack gone, working as a receiving back as expected but also seeing goal line work. Both Hines and rookie Jonathan Taylor would see their value jump up if Mack's season is over, with Hines being one of the top waiver priority for fantasy managers this week. Meanwhile, Taylor likely takes over as the lead back earlier than expected and should be a weekly start running behind a good offensive line.
Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack (foot) suffered a potential foot/ankle injury midway through the second quarter against the Jaguars on Sunday. The veteran was carted back to the locker room, and with this injury being of the non-contact variety, it certainly doesn't look promising for Mack's outlook for the foreseeable future. His status for the remainder of the game and the season, for that matter, is uncertain at the moment. Nyheim Hines, who has two touchdowns already, and rookie Jonathan Taylor, will both likely pick up some extra work.
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack (ankle) suffered an ankle injury during the Week 1 game and is considered questionable to return.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack (ankle) was helped to the sidelines after suffering an ankle injury in the second quarter of today's game. He had four carries for 26 yards and three catches for 30 yards before the injury. Early indications are that it's nothing major as he was taken to the bench first, rather than the pop-up tent. Rookie Jonathan Taylor could get a chance to make some plays if Mack misses a few drives or more.
Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack had a solid 2019 campaign, eclipsing 1,000 yards on the ground and picking up eight touchdowns. He enters this season as the No. 1 running back on the depth chart, but we can expect him to share time with rookie running backJonathan Taylor. Mack saw success against Jacksonville last season, picking up 186 yards and three touchdowns over two contests. Jacksonville ranks 28th against opposing running backs, so that suggests a favorable matchup for Mack. He should be a good RB2 option this week, but his upside is lower with Taylor now in the picture.
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack will be the starting running back this season, but the team will not be afraid of using the hot hand at the position, according to head coach Frank Reich.
Fantasy Spin: Mack is coming off a solid 2019 season, but the team added Jonathan Taylor this offseason. Mack likely will receive a majority of the carries, but Taylor should see some touches each game. Mack can be considered a No. 2 fantasy running back, while Taylor could be a handcuff to Mack or a late round option in drafts.
Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor said Tuesday, June 16, he isn't concerned about splitting time with RB Marlon Mack in 2020. 'You don't count the reps, you make the reps count,' Taylor said.
Fantasy Spin: Taylor was somewhat of a surprise pick by the Colts in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Mack rushed for 1,091 yards in 2019 while adding 82 receiving yards and scoring eight total rushing touchdowns. Taylor is expected to fill the pass-catching role and will certainly be a viable fantasy option in the Philip Rivers-led offense. Consider Taylor an RB2 in PPR leagues and RB3 in standard formats, with those roles being reversed for Mack.
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack ranked fourth in the league with 67 first downs rushing in 2019.
Indianapolis Colts running back Marlon Mack was the team's running game in 2019, which is why his broken hand in the second half of the season coincided with their late-season descent. He broke 15 mph on 51 runs (fourth-most among running backs) and had 28 runs of 10-plus yards. While Mack was an underrated explosive runner last year, his fantasy stock took a major hit when the Colts drafted rookie Jonathan Taylor in April. Mack could see the starting nod early in the season because of his veteran status, but Taylor is fully expected to take over this backfield at some point in 2020. The 24-year-old Mack can still make his mark with fewer touches because of his explosiveness, but he's expected to mainly be a flex option this year.
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack has inherent respect as the starter, according to head coach Frank Reich. 'I see it as a 1-1 (punch),' Reich said, referring to Mack and second-round pick RB Jonathan Taylor. 'The way the league has gone and the way roleplaying has been elevated in our league, it's made it prominent. We used to say in San Diego that when we had Danny Woodhead. He was not our starter, he was our 'role-playing' starter. He played such a significant role. He had 80 catches in a year. You look at a guy like Nyheim Hines. We talk about Marlon and Jonathan, but what about Nyheim? He's such a good third-down back that he'll play a prominent (role). In some ways, (Hines) is a starter. He's a role-playing starter.'
Fantasy Spin: It sounds to be a true committee in Indy with Mack holding RB2 status in fantasy and Nyheim Hines an RB3 in PPR. Taylor could play a larger role, but he'll open draft season as an RB4 or RB5 handcuff.
Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich discussed whether running back Marlon Mack should have a lead on retaining the starting running back spot over rookie Jonathan Taylor in 2020. "Theres definitely inherent respect for the starter returning. And thats the way I see this.I see it as a 1-1 (punch)," Reich said. Mack and Taylor will form a one-one punch, but the Colts also foresee a big role for pass-catching back Nyheim Hines, so this could be a complicated backfield for fantasy owners to navigate. Reich mentioned Hines as a "role-playing starter." Even though Mack might be the nominal "starter" in Week 1, everyone expects Taylor to eventually take the lead in this backfield, making Mack more of an RB3/flex in the long run in 2020.
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack tied for third in the league with nine rushes of 20 yards or more in the 2019 season.
Fantasy Spin: Those big gains helped Mack to his first 1,000-yard rushing season (1,091) and a No. 17 ranking among fantasy running backs. Mack, however, hit a career low with 14 receptions, and with Indy spending a second-round pick on Wisconsin back Jonathan Taylor, Mack should be valued as a RB3 at best.
Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni is looking at the tandem of RBs Marlon Mack and rookie Jonathan Taylor as a '1-1 punch' for the team to utilize.
Fantasy Spin: Mack, who is coming off his first career 1,000-yard season, will lose value and touches with Taylor on board. However, with a different offseason routine this year, it could lead to Mack seeing a heavier dose between the backs earlier in the year as Taylor picks up the system. Due to the time share, both backs' fantasy value suffers. Consider both RB3s entering draft season, while Taylor has higher upside -- especially in dynasty formats.
Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor was one draft analyst's favorite picks of Round 2, and that analyst says Taylor's addition will allow the Colts to play 'bully ball' with Taylor and Marlon Mack sharing the load to wear down opposing defenses.
Fantasy Spin: Taylor averaged 309 rushing attempts per season over the last three years at Wisconsin while Mack has seen his rushing attempts go from 93 as a rookie in 2017 to a team-leading 247 a year ago. Definitely expect a timeshare with two capable backs, but look for Taylor to be the lead back from Day 1 and produce as a RB2. Mack, meanwhile, slides down to the low-end RB3 range.
The Indianapolis Colts decided to trade up to the No. 41 pick in order to draft Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor. This is an interesting move by the Colts to trade up for a running back with Marlon Mack still under contract for another season. Taylor rushed for 2,003 yards on 320 attempts with 21 touchdowns for Wisconsin in 2019. Taylor is arguably the best running back in the draft class, but seems like an odd fit for Indy. The Cleveland Browns move down to No. 44 from this trade, but the Colts clearly weren't willing to wait in order to draft Taylor. It'll be interesting to see how Taylor performs with Mack alongside him in 2020.
Indianapolis Colts RB Marlon Mack ran for 591 yards before contact and 500 yards after contact in 2019 - making him one of only eight players who amassed at least 500 yards before and after contact.
