Summary

Ahmad Bradshaw is expected to be the Colts secondary option at running back in 2014 behind incumbent back Trent Richardson. Donald Brown has moved on to San Diego in the off season, thus opening the role to Bradshaw, who is entering his eighth year in the league. A neck injury and subsequent surgery, shortened his season last year after just three games. In addition to his neck injury, he has a long list of other ailments that has plagued him throughout his career which could limit his production. His grit, tenacity and toughness is what drives him and ultimately makes him a power, when he is healthy. Prior to joining the Colts, Bradshaw had three consecutive Top 20 finishes, which shows that he is a capable fantasy commodity. Bradshaw has several positives, with one big negative - there is always the threat of injury lurking around the corner. Perhaps being used as a backup to Trent Richardson will keep him fresh and healthy throughout the year. If he falters, Vick Ballard is waiting in the wings, capable of seeing an increase in playing time. (May 21)

Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw cleared (Thu Jul 24, 08:29 AM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) has been cleared to practice.

Our View: Bradshaw outplayed Trent Richardson before being sidelined last year, and some believe he can do it again this year. His draft stock is very low and Bradshaw will only cost you a pick in the very late rounds this year. He might even go undrafted. If Richardson stumbles out of the gate, Bradshaw could have surprising value, but Vick Ballard is also back and he might have something to say about that.

Colts | Trent Richardson will need to produce (Sat Jul 12, 12:15 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson will need to produce right away in the running game if he wants to keep the starting job, because the team will not wait for him to turn things around if RB Ahmad Bradshaw or Vick Ballard are playing well.

Our View: Richardson needs to get his confidence back. He looked tentative and lost last year after the trade which sent him from Cleveland to Indianapolis. Richardson is one of the most naturally talented runners in the game today, and he needs to start playing up to the potential he showed during his rookie season in 2012.
