The status reports of many players are coming in for the early slate of games in NFL Week 3, putting some fantasy owners at ease while others may be scrambling for a replacement. In the first batch of news, both Marlon Mack and T.Y. Hilton were announced as active for the Indianapolis Colts' matchup with the Atlanta Falcons.

Marlon Mack Fantasy Status

After being unable to practice on Wednesday and Thursday, Mack's status was questionable as he dealt with a calf injury. But after getting through pre-game warmups with no issues, Mack is officially active and should be in store for his typical workload as the lead back. Mack has totaled 45 carries through the first two games, running for 225 yards behind that big offensive line. His workload alone puts him in the area of RB2 value every week, and he sits 13th at the position in our Week 3 fantasy football rankings.

T.Y. Hilton Fantasy Status

Hilton logged three limited practices this week, as he dealt with a quad issue. However, it seems like the Colts were simply managing their veteran receiver and he looks to be a full go at home this week. Over his entire career, Hilton has averaged 80.1 receiving yards per game at home (69.3 yards on the road). He has proven to still be a terrific fantasy producer with Jacoby Brissett as his quarterback in 2019, catching 12 passes for 130 yards and three touchdowns on a team-high 15 targets. With Indy sitting as slight favorites at home, we have Hilton, like Mack, ranked 13th at his position for Week 3.
