Mack stated he is “there again” health-wise and can make the cuts he was accustomed to before his devastating injury. After impressing in minicamp, the 26-year-old is expected to open the season as Houston’s No. 1 running back.
Upon his arrival in Texas, Mack spent the first five years of his career with the Indianapolis Colts. Across those five seasons, the former fourth-round pick rushed for 2,484 yards on 567 carries (4.4 YPC), including a 1,000-yard campaign in 2019 (1,091). However, he was a healthy scratch for most of 2021 due to the strong play of Jonathan Taylor and the pass-catching ability of backup running back Nyheim Hines.
Buoyed by a potential meaningful role, Mack makes sense as a late-round flier in 2022 fantasy football leagues, particularly for those owners who employ the zero-RB strategy.
