  Seahawks | Seahawks work out veteran RBs    Tue Dec 27, 06:35 PM

Free-agent RBs Stevan Ridley (Falcons), Jonas Gray (Jaguars), LaMichael James (Dolphins), Dominique Williams (Jets) and Dan Herron (Bills) worked out for the Seattle Seahawks Tuesday, Dec. 27.

Footballguys view: No signing is imminent, but it shows how thin Seattle is at running back.

  Bills | Buffalo cuts seven offensive players    Fri Sep 2, 01:45 PM

Buffalo Bills RBs Dan Herron and James Wilder Jr., WRs Jarrett Boykin, Kain Colter and Dezmin Lewis, TE Blake Annen, and FB Jerome Felton were released Friday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: Wilder Jr. is a powerful back, but he lacks the burst to make a big impact as a runner in the NFL. Felton is a fine fullback (he blocked for Adrian Peterson during his 2,000 yard season) but the emergence of Glenn Gronkowski caused the team to move on.

  Bills | Dan Herron signs with Bills    Thu Jun 9, 09:43 AM

Free-agent RB Dan Herron (Colts) signed an undisclosed deal with the Buffalo Bills Thursday, June 9.

Footballguys view: While "Boom" Herron has been more of a "Bust" Herron so far in his career, he's good depth for the Bills to have on hand. LeSean McCoy is already nursing a minor injury, and we saw how quickly things went downhill last year once injuries hit. Don't draft Herron, but be aware of him if things go sideways in the Bills backfield again this season.

  Dolphins | Dan Herron not offered deal    Wed Jun 8, 02:24 AM

Free-agent RB Dan Herron (Colts) left his visit with the Miami Dolphins Monday, June 6, without a contract offer. However, he remains on the radar should the team determine it needs help at the position.

Footballguys view: Herron is on their list if they want to add more RB depth. Even if he's added, we can't see him being a fantasy-relevant player.

  Dolphins | Dan Herron works out with Miami    Mon Jun 6, 06:45 PM

Free-agent RB Dan Herron (Colts) worked out with the Miami Dolphins Monday, June 6.

Footballguys view: The Dolphins have spent most of this offseason trying to find more help at the RB position. If signed, Herron would only be for depth as he would be unlikely to challenge Jay Ajayi or rookie Kenyan Drake for the starting job.

  Bills | Buffalo run game does nothing    Sun Oct 11, 08:15 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Dan Herron carried nine times for just 28 yards in the Week 5 game against the Tennessee Titans, and RB Anthony Dixon ran seven times for 19 yards.

Footballguys view: The Bills running game was anemic without LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams and they might be without both of them again next week against the Bengals. Neither earned any waiver condition for Week 6.

  Bills | Dan Herron familiar with offense    Sat Oct 10, 09:33 AM

Buffalo Bills RB Dan Herron has picked up the offense quickly because it is similar to the offense that was used when he was with the Indianapolis Colts.

Footballguys view: Reports indicate that Herron is going to split time with Anthony Dixon in the backfield this week. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman said he has been impressed with Herron during practice and indicated Herron likely will have a role in the Week 5 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Buffalo Bills RBs LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Karlos Williams (concussion) both missed practice again Friday, Oct. 9, and have been ruled out for Week 5 against the Tennessee Titans.

Footballguys view: Williams is still in the concussion protocol. RB Anthony Dixon is likely to start against the Titans, but RB Dan Herron could see a heavy workload.

  Bills | Dan Herron could see significant work    Thu Oct 8, 06:04 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon will start in Week 5 against the Tennessee Titans, but RB Dan Herron could see more carries than Dixon in the game.

Free-agent RB Dan Herron (Colts) was signed by the Buffalo Bills Tuesday, Oct. 6. TE MarQueis Gray (forearm) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: The Bills needed to do something with both LeSean McCoy (hamstring) and Karlos Williams (concussion) banged up. Herron is a seasoned veteran who can serve as a reserve player behind likely Week 5 starter Anthony Dixon.

  Chargers | Danny Woodhead to give Bengals fits?    Sat Sep 19, 10:59 PM

San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead faces the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2, and late in 2014, the Bengals allowed 80 yards receiving to Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and 85 yards receiving to Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron.

Footballguys view: We like Woodhead as a RB2 with upside in PPR leagues. He's a dangerous weapon who can make defenders miss in the open field. The Bengals have had some linebacker injuries, and Woodhead should be matched up against a linebacker when utilized as a receiver out of the backfield.

  Colts | Dan Herron waived/injured    Sun Sep 6, 02:57 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron (shoulder) was waived/injured Sunday, Sept. 6. He will move to the Reserve/Injured list if he clears waivers.

Footballguys view: Josh Robinson and Vick Ballard are the backups to Frank Gore now. Ballard has fought back from two straight season-ending injuries and Robinson is SEC tested and stubborn, so either could have value in this potent offense if Gore goes down.

  Colts | Dan Herron, Vick Ballard injured    Thu Sep 3, 08:08 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron (shoulder) and RB Vick Ballard (hamstring) suffered injuries in the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3, and will not return to the game.

Footballguys view: This is why starters don't get much play if any for the majority of the teams in the NFL this week. Neither of these players might be fantasy relevant unless Frank Gore gets hurt. Gore is a very nice RB2 this year though.

  Colts | Dan Herron is No. 2 RB    Sat Aug 8, 12:40 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is currently the primary backup to RB Frank Gore.

Footballguys view: Rookie Josh Robinson is a souped-up but lighter Mike Tolbert. His pass blocking needs to improve before the Colts trust him, but he could be a more dynamic back than Herron. We'll be watching this because starter Frank Gore is in his age 32 season, but remember he hasn't missed a game in the last four years.

  Colts | Vick Ballard making progress    Sun Apr 5, 11:53 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') is doing well in his rehab from a torn Achilles' tendon but there is no timetable for his return to the field, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Footballguys view: Achilles' injuries aren't as devastating as they used to be, but the team will be cautious with Ballard as he recovers. Ballard is expected to compete with RB Dan Herron for the team's RB2 job if he is healthy.

  Colts | Dan Herron signs tender    Wed Apr 1, 12:34 PM

Indianapolis Colts exclusive rights free-agent RB Dan Herron has signed his tender offer Wednesday, April 1. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Colts had to keep Herron around as a reserve player behind Frank Gore. Herron looked 1,000 percent better than Trent Richardson last year, but he did wear down as the season went on.

  Colts | Dan Herron receives tender    Thu Mar 5, 05:48 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron was tendered as an exclusive rights free agent Thursday, March 5.

  Colts | Dan Herron may not be starter    Tue Jan 20, 10:05 AM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is more of a backup than a starter, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Wells.

Footballguys view: Wells is right. Herron drops too many passes to be counted on as anything more than a part-time player. We'll likely see the Colts make a move for a free agent running back or select on in the draft.

  Colts | Dan Herron the key to victory?    Fri Jan 16, 08:14 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron has had at least eight carries in a game eight times this year, and the Colts are 8-0 in those games.

Footballguys view: This is a super simplified way of looking at the matchup against the Patriots. They could give Herron 20 carries, and it doesn't put an automatic "W" on the board. The Patriots are a tough matchup, and we think Herron is best suited getting a lot of receptions out of the backfield. We're not predicting a ton of success on the ground for the Colts. This game will come down to Andrew Luck and his ability to lift this team.

  Colts | Dan Herron shows versatility    Sun Jan 11, 08:45 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron ran 23 times for 63 yards and a score and added eight catches for 32 yards in the team's 24-13 win over the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 11.

Footballguys view: Herron was used in many different ways against the Broncos. While the overall numbers are not overwhelming, he did do enough to keep the chains moving on multiple plays.

  Colts | Trent Richardson's role unclear    Thu Jan 8, 01:24 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson's role is unclear leading up to the divisional round game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 11, after he was demoted to third on the depth chart behind RBs Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton in the team's wild-card playoff win. Richardson only played on one offensive snap last weekend. "We're going to evaluate the situation as we go through the week and we'll know more as we go through the week," head coach Chuck Pagano said.

Footballguys view: Acquiring Richardson has been a disaster for Indianapolis, as has been thoroughly and well-documented at this point. Richardson is not worth a start or a spot in a playoff league.

  Colts | Dan Herron to return to starting role    Tue Jan 6, 06:51 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron will return to a starting role against the Denver Broncos in the divisional round game Sunday, Jan. 11, after fumbling twice in the team's wild-card playoff win last weekend. Herron was pulled from the game in favor of RB Zurlon Tipton after fumbling the second time, but he returned to the game later.

Footballguys view: Herron had a good game with a large role against the Bengals. Running room will be much tougher to come by against the Broncos no.2 ranked rush defense.

  Colts | Dan Herron finishes game    Tue Dec 9, 05:34 PM

  Colts | Trent Richardson's role won't be reduced    Tue Dec 2, 06:27 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson won't have his role reduced by head coach Chuck Pagano after RB Dan Herron outplayed Richardson for the second straight week in Week 13 against the Washington Redskins. Herron has run for 153 yards and a touchdown in the last two games, while Richardson has just 54 yards rushing. 'He's a professional, he understands,' Pagano said. 'None of us can ever get away from working at our craft regardless of the circumstance, regardless of adversity, just keep grinding, just keep working, just keep swinging the ax. If he keeps swinging the ax, the tree will fall. If you put the ax down, the tree is never coming down. Just keep chopping wood and good things will happen.'

Footballguys view: It won't be reduced because it's already been reduced. Richardson's fantasy owners aren't going to get much if they start him in the fantasy playoffs. Dan Herron has taken over as the starter, leaving Richardson to pick up table scraps as a reserve runner.

  Colts | Dan Herron outplays T-Rich    Mon Dec 1, 01:26 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron led the team in rushing for the second straight week despite fumbling for the second straight week. Herron had 88 yards and a touchdown on eight carries, while RB Trent Richardson totaled just 12 yards on the same amount of carries in the win over the Washington Redskins. Herron has averaged 7.7 yards per carry in the last two weeks, and he's also contributed in the passing game, with QB Andrew Luck targeting him seven times in the last two weeks, and Herron has caught all seven targets. 'He's a talented, talented guy, and I think we've seen that out of him,' Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said. 'He's quick, he's fast to hit the hole and once he gets outside, he's got some long speed; I think we all found that out.'

Footballguys view: This says more about Richardson than it does about Herron. He's quicker and more decisive than Richardson when running the rock, and that leads to better production on the ground. The team will still continue to use both backs, but Herron is the most fantasy relevant.

  Colts | Dan Herron having fumbling problems    Sun Nov 30, 09:11 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron lost a fumble in the second quarter of the Week 13 game against the Washington Redskins, his second in as many games. 'Have to keep working on it,' Herron said Sunday, Nov. 30. 'It's one of those things. You hate for it to happen. You just have to keep working on it in practice.' Herron was able to finish with 88 yards on eight carries, including a 49-yard touchdown.

Footballguys view: Herron is clearly more able to convert touches to fantasy points than Trent Richardson, but the Colts can probably win with mediocre, but safe RB play. Herron's owners should still consider him an upside flex play and boom/bust RB2 heading into Cleveland next week.

  Colts | Dan Herron starting    Sun Nov 23, 12:54 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron has been announced as the team's starting running back for Week 12.

Footballguys view: Trent Richardson has been sick, so maybe this isn't a changing of the guard, but there's no way to spin it as a good thing for Richardson in maybe the best remaining matchup on the Colts schedule.

  Colts | Pagano has confidence in Dan Herron    Mon Nov 17, 05:50 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is expected to take on a much larger role in the offense with the season-ending injury to RB Ahmad Bradshaw (leg). 'Now Boom (Daniel Herron) will have an opportunity. We've seen glimpses of Boom in the preseason and at other times. We know he's more than capable. I know Boom will prepare. He always prepares as a starter. I think he'll do fine, and he'll take advantage of this opportunity,' Pagano said.

Footballguys view: Trent Richardson will be the starter, but Pagano refused to say if he would be the third-down back as well. Herron is a tough player to bring down when he builds a head of steam. He'll work in a RBBC with Richardson.

  Colts | Dan Herron to see expanded role    Mon Nov 17, 04:09 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is likely to see his snaps increase out of the backfield after the injury to RB Ahmad Bradshaw (leg).

Footballguys view: Dan "Boom" Herron isn't quite as explosive as Bradshaw is as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. We'll see Herron work as a part-time player behind starter Trent Richardson.

  Colts | Dan Herron to be placed on IR    Mon Dec 2, 04:12 PM

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron (pectoral) will be placed on Injured Reserve because of a torn pectoral muscle.

Footballguys view: Look for the Colts to add some help at the running back position. They could even go after someone like Kerwynn Williams. He is on the Chargers practice squad right now, but Williams was with the team in camp after being a seventh-round pick for them in the 2013 NFL draft.

  Colts | Two possibilities as kick returner    Wed Nov 27, 01:08 PM

Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said Wednesday, Nov. 27, that WR LaVon Brazill and RB Dan Herron are possibilities to return kicks in Week 13 following the release of WR David Reed.

Footballguys view: The Colts are going to be more than fine here. Brazill has speed and big play ability in the open field. Herron lacks the speed of Brazill, but he can make defenders miss in space.

The Indianapolis Colts signed free-agent LB Andy Studebaker (Jaguars) and promoted RB Dan Herron from the practice squad.

Footballguys view: The Colts needed to do something at the running back position since Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) was lost for the season. Herron is a tough between-the-tackles runner with little burst or elusiveness. He'll serve as a reserve running back behind Trent Richardson and Donald Brown.

  Bengals | Rex Burkhead may have edge for roster spot    Thu Aug 29, 04:16 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Rex Burkhead may have an edge over RB Dan Herron for the last running back spot on the final roster because Burkhead would be more likely to be claimed off waivers than Herron.

Footballguys view: The rookie from Nebraska is a tough inside runner. He's swift and can get to top speed in a hurry. Burkhead is not creative or elusive in the open field and prefers to smash into opponents rather than run around them.

Cincinnati Bengals RB Dan Herron is believed to have an edge over RB Rex Burkhead for the final running back spot on the roster because of his ability to play special teams.

Footballguys view: 'Boom' Herron is a decent inside runner with a little pop to his game. We like Burkhead's determination between the tackles and fierce attitude when running the ball. The Bengals could try to sneak Burkhead through to the practice squad if he doesn't make the final roster.

  Bengals | Cedric Peerman expected to be ready for camp    Wed Jul 10, 02:39 PM

Cincinnati Bengals RB Cedric Peerman (undisclosed) missed some offseason workouts because of an undisclosed injury but should be ready for the start of training camp. He is expected to compete with RBs Dan Herron and Rex Burkhead for a roster spot but likely will have an edge because of his special teams play as well as his production running the ball last season.

Footballguys view: Peerman is a good all-around runner but he should only be on a roster in ultra deep fantasy leagues. At one time we were hoping to see more from Peerman but it looks like at this time his role is clearly defined (and not expanding).
