Fantasy Football: 10 Undervalued Players in Best-Ball Leagues
Marlon Mack, RB, Indianapolis Colts
ADP: 101st overall, RB38
Marlon Mack mirrored former teammate Frank Gore in fantasy points per snap (0.32) last season while handling 168 fewer carries. Fortunately for Mack, Gore's absence this year leaves 57.8% of Indianapolis' carries and rushing production unaccounted for.
Overall, Mack played only 34.29% of the Colts' snaps last season. In the seven games in which he received double-digit opportunities (carries and targets), though, he averaged 10.9 PPR points. He averaged 3.8 PPR points per outing in the seven games in which he received fewer opportunities.
Having said that, new Colts coach Frank Reich may want to implement a backfield committee. That's what he did with the Philadelphia Eagles, after all, resulting in three total instances in which an Eagles back played at least 50% of offensive snaps last season.
But with Andrew Luck's propensity to target running backs (20% target rate in 2016) and Mack appearing have the inside track to a role inside the five-yard line, he needs to only stave off rookies Nyheim Hines --- who profiles as a pass-game weapon --- and Jordan Wilkins to be much more valuable than his current ADP entails.
