It looks like the Indianapolis Colts will get a huge boost to their lineup in Week 14 when they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Running back Marlon Mack (hand) returned to practice in limited fashion on Wednesday, and was a full participant on Thursday, according to beat writer Zak Keefer.

Mack broke his hand in Week 11, but has made quick progress in returning to action. Jonathan Williams secured the starting job in his stead, but will likely return to a basic backup role when Mack is active. Nyheim Hines will likely remain a major complement as the passing down back.

Fantasy football analysis: Colts RB Marlon Mack

The Bucs run defense has been stout this year, but Mack is a must start if healthy. He’ll see a ton of work, and even if he is not overly efficient with his touches, he’ll get enough that he’s worth starting in virtually every fantasy format. Jonathan Williams is maybe worth stashing for the playoffs if Mack gets hurt again, but otherwise has little re-draft fantasy value.
