Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 12 vs TB (4 / 6 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 20 / 0 rec)

Another day, another light load for Ahmad Bradshaw. The veteran running back couldn't do much with his touches against a defense focusing on the run, and averaged less than four yards per touch. His ability to break tackles was on display, but there simply wasn't room to run on Sunday. Unfortunately for Bradshaw, a broken wrist put him on the injured reserve list on Monday, and his season is over. It was fitting, sadly, for the oft-injured running back to go out like this.

2015 Week 11 vs ATL (9 / 32 / 0 rush, 4 / 4 / 20 / 2 rec)

Scoring twice on goal-line passes in this one, Ahmad Bradshaw showed once again why the Colts value him so much down at the goalline, with his ability to beat linebackers in small spaces giving the team incredible scoring value. Bradshaw will continue to get high-reward looks, but he'll be completely touchdown dependent as a fantasy asset with Frank Gore staying as the lead back. Gore was hampered by a quad contustion against Atlanta, but it looked to be minor. If something develops later in the week, however, Bradshaw's value will skyrocket.

2015 Week 9 vs DEN (6 / 3 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 8 / 1 rec)

While the veteran running back looked slow and indecisive in the run game, leading to a putrid 0.5 yards per carry, Bradshaw as a key cog in the Colts passing game as a 3rd-down back. He also lined up split out wide several times in the team's empty sets. He only had one catch, but it was a beauty of a play, as Andrew Luck read the blitz and quickly lobbed it to a leaking Bradshaw for an eight-yard score. The volume in touches won't be there for Bradshaw, but the participatory snaps should continue.

2015 Week 8 vs CAR (7 / 31 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

The Colts continue to trust Bradshaw in critical situations, giving him numerous third-down snaps and nearly a quarter of the team's rushing attempts. He showed some of his old toughness on Monday, namely on a 23-yard run on 3rd-and-10 in the first quarter, spinning and powering his way through defenders for an unlikely first down. But unless Gore goes down, the volume will be too little to be a true fantasy asset.

2015 Week 6 vs NE (4 / 8 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)

The Colts' favorite utility back was underwhelming on Sunday, averaging just two yards per carry and getting one target in the passing game. While he has lost a step from last year, if this game was any indication, he might still be able to be a replacement-level back. Bradshaw might be a fantasy asset if Frank Gore gets injured, but until that happens, he won't see the volume to be valuable.
