FFToday's Take: Mack had been sidelined by a shoulder injury since Week 2, but he did not appear to miss a beat against San Francisco in Week 5. The rookie is highly unlikely to force Frank Gore out of the lineup, but a true split backfield seems the most likely resolution for a team that wants to reduce Gore's workload. Nevertheless, Mack should be added in leagues this week and could be a serviceable flex option in Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans.
