|Mack catapulted into the top 10 at the running back position with ten total touchdowns and 1111 combined rushing and receiving yards last year. His 13.4 points per game were better than David Johnson, Phillip Lindsay, and Leonard Fournette, and he scored three more rushing touchdowns than Ezekiel Elliott.
The Colts did not add a young running back in the draft or and have put veteran Spencer Ware on the PUP list, lending credence to the narrative that the team intends on using Mack as their first and second down back and Nyheim Hines as the receiving back once again in 2019.
Another 10-touchdown season for Mack is not out of the question based on the fact that the Colts project to be a top-10 offense and the offensive line for Indy is one of the best in the league. But the fact that Mack is not a heavily used back in the passing game will limit his ability to finish as an elite fantasy running back especially in PPR leagues.

Colts downgrade QB

|#MIAvsIND Injury Updates:
QB Jacoby Brissett has been downgraded to OUT.
CB Pierre Desir has been downgraded to DOUBTFUL. (Colts on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Brissett was limited in practice all week and ultimately ruled out on Saturday. Brian Hoyer will get the start against the Dolphins in a plus matchup but Marlon Mack should figure heavy in the Colts gameplan.

|Colts HC Frank Reich says QB Jacoby Brissett is a game-time decision to play vs. the Dolphins. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: This is obviously a tasty matchup for the Colts but if Brissett (knee) does play he'll do so at less than 100 percent and without the services of T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand). Brian Hoyer would get the start if Brissett can't go but expect to see a lot of Marlon Mack in this game.

Quad injury for Hitlon
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Oct 6, 7:15 am
|For the SNF game, there is optimism that #Colts
WR T.Y. Hilton (quad) plays, while RB Marlon Mack (ankle) is a game-time call, but the team will be cautious. Meanwhile, #Chiefs RB Damien Williams (knee) and WR Sammy Watkins (shoulder) both should play, sources say. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Hilton was limited in practice this week but it appears he will give it a go on Sunday Night Football against the Chiefs. He'll be a risky low-end WR1 in this matchup. If Mack sits, Jordan Wilkins and Nyheim Hines would handle running back duties with Hines more likely to see the bulk of the pass-catching work.

|Not good news on the injury front. No Darius Leonard and no Marlon Mack. Still think there’s a decent chance Mack plays Sunday. (George Bremer on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Mack is dealing with a calf injury. Getting in a Friday practice will go a long way to him being active on Sunday against the Falcons. Jordan Wilkins would assume a larger role if Mack can't go.
