Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Mack went down with a season-ending torn Achilles just 11 snaps into the 2020 campaign.
  • A 2018 study of 95 NFL players with Achilles tears found that they returned an average of 340 days after surgery. That’d put Mack back on the field a few weeks before the start of the 2021 season.
  • That same study found “significantly worse postoperative performance scores compared with preoperative scores.”
  • ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported in March that Mack expects to be a “full go” for the start of training camp.
  • He re-signed with the Colts in free agency on a fully guaranteed 1-year, $2 million deal.
  • As Indy’s lead ball-carrier across 2018 and 2019, Mack averaged 77 rushing yards per game on 4.5 yards per carry.
  • He ranked 23rd among 47 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus’ 2018 rushing grades and 18th out of 45 in 2019.
  • Jonathan Taylor handled 56.7% of Colts RB carries last year. That climbed to 74.7% over the season’s final 6 games (including playoffs).
  • Working in Mack’s favor is that Indianapolis ranked 9th in rush rate and 10th in rush attempts last year. This should remain a run-leaning offense in 2021.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Mack went down with a torn Achilles last September -- an injury that might threaten his availability for the start of the 2021 campaign. Whenever he’s ready, he figures to take a clear backseat to Jonathan Taylor (with Nyheim Hines continuing to mix in).

Mack will likely need Taylor to miss time this season to be a fantasy factor.

The Chiefs have "looked into" trading for Colts RB Marlon Mack, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported a couple of weeks ago that Mack is on the trade block. He's looked pretty good coming off last year's torn Achilles, averaging 4.3 yards on 20 attempts. The Chiefs, of course, have a need at RB after losing Clyde Edwards-Helaire for the next few weeks. We'll see where this goes, but Mack is an interesting stash if you have a roster spot to play with.

The Colts and RB Marlon Mack have "agreed to mutually seek a trade," NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Mack made it back from last year's Achilles tear for Week 1 but has carried just 5 times so far this season. He was a healthy scratch last week. We'll see where this goes, but Mack is only worth stashing in deep fantasy leagues.

Colts RB Marlon Mack is a healthy scratch for today's game against the Titans. Jordan Wilkins is active as Indy's #3 RB behind Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines. The news could mean a few extra carries for Taylor.

Colts RB Marlon Mack doesn't have any limitations in training camp. But he admits that he's still "trying to get the wheels right" after last September's torn Achilles. "I’d say my body and just getting my legs right,’" Mack said. “Still each day feel this and that, but just going out there and getting used to guys flowing around, getting used to practice with guys because I was with bags in the summer. Now I’m going with guys who are moving 100% and not being stationary. But it’s getting better each day, I would say that for sure. I’m getting more comfortable. I feel great." Mack is unlikely to be a fantasy factor this year without an injury to RB Jonathan Taylor. But we're curious to see just how much work he'll siphon from Taylor.

Zak Keefer of The Athletic reports that the Colts say RB Marlon Mack is back to 100% health for the start of camp. That's noteworthy, given Mack missed last year with a torn Achilles' tendon. Of course, being 100% healthy does not necessarily equal being back to your original performance level. But this is a big step for the veteran back. Mack still can't hope to be more than the #3 RB on this year's Indy roster, but his return could leave Jordan Wilkins without a spot. A near full-strength Mack could also stress the workload for Jonathan Taylor.
