2017 Outlook: Marlon Mack

The Colts hope Marlon Mack can provide a spark for their run game working with Frank Gore this year, and potentially start for them down the line. Mack, the Colts' fourth-round pick, averaged 6.2 yards per carry for South Florida over three seasons, saving his best for last with a 15-score, 1,414-total-yard campaign in 2016. He has experience lining up all over the field, and has shown good skills as a receiver. He's also an absolute burner when put in space. He's not a powerful runner, so there might be some trepidation about his future as an every-down back, but it doesn't mean he won't evolve into a 15-touch-per-game playmaker for Indianapolis. Gore's Fantasy owners will race to get Mack before Round 9 ends, but that's about the same time savvy drafters will also consider him as a high-upside reserve. A good showing this preseason could push him into Round 8, which is when he'll probably get picked in dynasty/keeper start-ups. He's a late first-round choice in rookie-only drafts.
