2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Marlon Mack has a Darren Sproles skill set that the Colts will likely deploy all over the field. He should be fun to follow this preseason but it's unlikely that he will slide into consistent carries in his rookie campaign. Mack's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield could force 2016 UDFA Josh Ferguson off the roster prior to the season. Ferguson attempted to fill the pass catching role in Indy but lacks the vision and explosiveness this offense wants from a multi-dimensional running back.

Gore the early favorite to remain a workhorse
Robert Turbin, Marlon Mack could fill specialized roles early on
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jun 15, 5:40 pm

Indianapolis Colts
It's an intriguing mix led by the elder statesman (34-year old Frank Gore), the versatile veteran (Robert Turbin) and the rapid rookie (Marlon Mack). We're expecting Gore to remain the workhorse, if you consider 16-18 carries per game workhorse level. OC Rod Chudzinski could offer an expanded role to Turbin, who would embrace it. Also, Mack could steal some of Gore's carries if he proves himself NFL-ready. (CBS 4 Indy - Mike Chappell)

FFToday's Take: Turbin has reportedly had "a helluva spring" according to Chudzinski, although it would be a mistake for the journeyman to be used as anything more than a goal-line or change-of-pace option. Mack's explosiveness makes him a unique weapon in this offense and he is a capable receiver to boot. At least for now, the rookie should be considered the handcuff for Gore, who could push for another 260 or so carries if he stays healthy and/or doesn't fall off a cliff physically.

Colts sign RB Christine Michael
Was released by Green Bay on May 1st

Indianapolis Colts
The Indianapolis Colts have signed free-agent running back Christine Michael, the team announced Thursday. The Packers released Michael on May 1 after the team selected three running backs in the NFL draft. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Michael has flashed ability when on the field but he's been unable find consistent playing time since coming into the league in 2013. Stints in Seattle and Green Bay have ultimately led to his release. Now, the Colts will give him a shot. It's a good landing spot for his fantasy value as veteran Frank Gore is backed up only by rookie Marlon Mack and veteran Robert Turbin.
