2019 NFL Draft Guide Player Profile: Marlon Mack
Colby Conway takes an in-depth look at Marlon Mack to let fantasy football owners know what to expect from the Indianapolis Colts RB during the 2019 NFL season.
What if I told you that the RB21 (0.5PPR) from last season would be an interesting draft day target in the third round as a potential bell cow back in 2019? Despite scoring only a few more fantasy points than Houston’s Lamar Miller in 2018, there is some intrigue around Indianapolis’ Marlon Mack . He was one of just 10 running backs in 2018 to rush for at least nine touchdowns, and he saw plenty of work throughout the season. He averaged 16 rushing attempts per game for the season, including three weeks with 20 or more carries. While he likely won’t be a huge factor in the passing game this season, he’ll get a handful of targets per work, and any little bit helps! With the Colts doing very little to bolster their running back room, Mack is poised to improve upon last year, in terms of volume, productivity, and fantasy points.
Mack received 55.6 percent of the team’s rushing attempts last season, and with the coaching staff committing to him this season, it would be no surprise...
