2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
Marlon Mack had a very productive 2019 in his first season as a starter in the NFL. He rushed the ball 247 times for 1,091 yards and 8 touchdowns, and added 14 receptions for 82 yards. He did that in 14 games, missing two weeks due to injury. Had the Colts used him in a major way in the passing game, Mack could have been a top-10 back in the league.

The biggest issue with Mack from a fantasy perspective is that it has been difficult to ascertain when he will have a good game and when he will have a dud. He had seven games last season where he scored over 15 PPR fantasy points, but in the other seven games he played, he scored under 10 points! This made it very difficult to ever start him, since he posted a dud in half of his games. If you guessed right you were happy, but that is not a game most fantasy managers want to play.

Most of his lack of sustainable fantasy scoring is due to his lack of action in the passing game, and that does not seem to be because Mack lacks skill in that area. It seems to have been part of the Colts' coaching staff's desire to keep Nyheim Hines involved. Whether they will continue to use Hines on passing downs now that Taylor is in the fold is up in the air. It would seem to make more sense to use Mack on those downs, as he is certainly the better overall player and has the skill required both to pass protect and to catch the ball.

If Mack and Hines split the scraps left over after Taylor gets the bulk of early-down carries, that will ensure neither of them is usable in fantasy. But if the staff decides to give Mack around 10 touches a game between carries and receptions, as a true complement to Taylor, he will certainly retain flex value in 2020.

Colts’ OC discusses RB group
Nyheim Hines will be a beneficiary of Rivers being the QB
By: Mike Krueger | Mon May 11, 11:11 am

Indianapolis Colts
Regarding Marlon Mack/Jonathan Taylor, Sirianni says: "We have two exceptional backs. We've seen it work in the NFL so much where you have different contrasts of guys.... They have different running styles but they're both complete backs." Says Nyheim Hines will be a beneficiary of Rivers being the QB. Cites Danny Woodhead as an example, who caught a lot of passes from Rivers when Sirianni was in San Diego. (Stephen Holder on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Austin Ekeler and Melvin Gordon have been beneficiaries of Rivers checkdown style over the last couple years which breathes some life into the PPR fantasy value of Hines. His general description of Taylor and Mack indicate would could be looking at a 50-50 timeshare for the two RBs in 2020.
