2018 Fantasy Outlook
Few rookie campaigns have been as predictable as Mack's 2017. Stuck behind Frank Gore on the depth chart while playing in an offense that didn't present much of a vertical threat without Andrew Luck under center, the fourth-round pick out of South Florida couldn't produce big numbers, but he showed flashes of his big-play ability with seven runs of 15 yards or more on only 93 carries. At 6-0, 210, Mack compensates for his thin frame with speed that appears better than his 4.5 40 time, along with ankle-breaking moves that routinely leave defenders grasping at air. It's also worth noting he played through a torn labrum in his shoulder most of 2017 - ultimately requiring offseason surgery - which could explain his reluctance to run through tackles or fully engage blitzing pass rushers. Returning veteran Robert Turbin figures to be limited to short-yardage work once he returns from a four-game suspension, and while the Colts drafted Nyheim Hines and Jordan Wilkins to compete for snaps, the former profiles as a pass-catching specialist and the latter looks like a lesser version of Mack. If Luck can return and force safeties out of the box, the second-year back has the talent to exploit the extra space. Mack faces another obstacle after straining a hamstring in the first week of the preseason, leaving his Week 1 availability in doubt. Read Past Outlooks

Breaks out against hapless Bills
RBIndianapolis Colts
October 21, 2018
Mack rushed for 126 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries while catching two of three targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-5 win over Buffalo. He was also successful on a two-point conversion on the ground.
ANALYSIS
Mack converted a 4th-and-1 near midfield late in the first quarter, keeping alive a drive that ended with a touchdown by tight end Erik Swoope. The running back found himself doing the scoring on the Colts' next possession, finding paydirt on a 29-yard reception before adding a two-point conversion on the ground. Mack poured a little salt into Buffalo's wounds in the fourth quarter, scoring a 20-yard rushing touchdown to make it 37-5. Expect him to get the bulk of the rushing work against the Raiders in Week 8 following this breakout performance.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
A fourth-round pick out of South Florida, Mack potentially gives the Colts a big-play hare in their backfield to complement Frank Gore's slow but steady tortoise act. Mack showed incredible elusiveness and balance at USF, routinely making wouldbe tacklers miss en route to six TD runs of 40 yards or more in his final college season -- and he's got the burst to hit a hole with power when he identifies one. But he too often looks to bounce a play outside for a home run rather than settling for a smaller opening inside, something that could get him in trouble against faster NFL defenders. Gore's tutelage could help the rookie temper those instincts and learn when it's best to take what he's given. Mack likely will fill a change-of-pace role in 2017 but could be in line for bigger things once Gore retires.
