Marlon Mack: Sell or Hold?

Postby Kelldon » Sat Nov 17, 2018 7:53 pm

Is Mack a sell or hold? If he's a sell what would you sell him for?

He's a hold for me. I don't think you will be happy with what you get for him. He's a young talented back in a pretty good offense with upside potential. I think folks are going to be nervous with the potential of L.Bell ending in Indy plus he has been a player that has had a tough time staying healthy. He is talented and better on my roster than off at this point.

Hold. He's explosive, and dramatically improved his between the tackles running. Guy is a big play waiting to happen. He is elusive, and has decent hands out of the backfield, too. There is a chance Bell ends up in Indy, but Mack is 22 and has really played well this year since returning from his hamstring injury.

Mack should be a trade target, not a sell. He does everything well. In a better running offense he could easily be doing what Conner is doing this season.
If you can't leave at least a 20% tip, you can't afford to eat out.

I completely agree. He is very under rated, and thus a target. People were debating on whether he was worth a random first, or a late first not too long ago, and that is a buy without a doubt. Everyone is enamoured with Aaron Jones these days, who I like a lot, but I would much rather have Mack over Jones if I had to choose.

If you ARE looking to sell, then this is the sort of thing you need to be saying to a prospective buyer... tell them about the great Indy line (what universe are we in, seriously) and how Andrew Luck is in his prime and that arm injury is behind him... his downsides are that he's very injury prone, and that Indy might be a Bell destination - so maybe don't mention that part...

I managed to put him in a package with Robert Woods and three picks (1st, 2nd, 3rd) for Tyreek Hill just before our deadline.

Mack looked good again. Left in the 4th with a concussion, hopefully not too serious, but I think he's drastically improved this year.

I suspect you won't get an overpay for Mack since he's missed so much time with injuries and the Bell thing. I'd hold if that's the case, his upside is phenomenal.

I get the weird sense that Bell isn't going to end up in Indy, despite them having far and away the most cap space in the league. Raiders overpaying Bell just feels like a textbook meddling Jon Gruden move to me. They'll have plenty of cash if (when) they get out of Derek Carr's contract. The Jets will also be super flush with cash and their starting QB is on a rookie contract so I could see that too.

He's a solid sell for me. Always hurt and in and out of lineup. If Bell does sign with Indy, his value plummets.

Get something now while you can.

Not entirely sure what to do with this guy. I acquired him relatively cheaply this season from a guy blowing up his roster right after one of Mack's first breakout games. He had a strong finish to his season and there is some real hype that Indy just sticks with him as their starter in 2019 as opposed to going out and spending big on Lev Bell. I think I'm holding unless I'm able to package him for a player I like substantially more at this point.

I don't know why so many are thinking Bell ends up in Indy. Long shot in my opinion.

As a Mack owner, I'm not sure whether he's a buy, sell, or hold. I haven't had anyone approaching me with offers, so hold is the most likely.
Not all that counts can be counted. Not all that can be counted counts.

I owned 2 shares, sold one in a package for a stud just to hedge a bit. His lack of receiving usage, injuries and the Bell threat scare me. I’m definitely holding my other share because I really feel he’s so talented, love watching him run.

We don't think Indy's offense is a plus situation for a runner though? That line was great this year.

gave my 2019 1.05, 4.05, and Austin Hooper in a 14 team league that holds their rookie draft before the NFL rookie draft for Marlon Mack last week. A little pricey but I think he'll prove worth it :D
