Quick fantasy outlook: Vick Ballard is entering his second year in the league. In his rookie season he averaged just 3.9 yards per carry for 814 yards on 211 carries with two touchdowns. He has a difficult battle with newly signed Ahmad Bradshaw for the right to be the team's lead running back for the 2013 season. At 5-foot-10, 219 pounds, Ballard has the size to be an all around back, capable of punching in a touchdown at the goal line and nimble enough to be effective in open space. The Colts have been a pass-dominant team going back several years, whether Peyton Manning was quarterback or Andrew Luck. Last year Indianapolis had the fewest receptions in the league to running backs, with 34. The running game has not been a strong facet of the Colts offense, but that could change in 2013 with the addition of Ahmad Bradshaw, who has three consecutive Top 20 seasons. Ballard is a capable back with the ability to keep the offense afloat, but he'll likely take a back seat and be a complimentary option behind Bradshaw. As a result, his fantasy expectations should drop compared to where they were last season.
