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

Sets career high in rushing
RBIndianapolis Colts
December 16, 2018
Mack carried 27 times for 139 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Cowboys. He also caught one pass for a 10-yard gain in the 23-0 win.
ANALYSIS
The Dallas defense had allowed just one 100-yard rusher this season coming in, but Mack gashed them repeatedly en route to a new career high in rushing. He scored a one-yard touchdown in the first quarter and added a six-yard score to start things off in the third. Mack was bottled up on the ground over the last two weeks, but he still has at least 96 scrimmage yards or a touchdown in four of his last five games. He'll hope to retain a sizable role in the offense next Sunday against the Giants.

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.
