Week 9: at New York Giants

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Trent Richardson is currently nursing an injured hamstring, and though he was active as the #3 emergency running back vs. Pittsburgh last week, he didn't play a down. The above means that right now Ahmad Bradshaw is the clear-cut featured running back for the Colts, and he showed us what he can do in that role last week with 6/35/1 rushing and 7/52/0 receiving (Indianapolis was in chase mode all day as Ben Roethlisberger had his career day throwing for 522 net yards and six TDs). If the game had been closer Bradshaw would have had more carries to his credit (Indianapolis only tried ten runs last week). We'd anticipate that Bradshaw headlines again this week while Richardson gets his hamstring healthy on the sidelines. The Giants' rush D is ranked 22nd in the NFL averaging 122.0 yards given up per game, and they've coughed up a healthy eight rushing scores so far this season. New York is coming off a bye week, but allowed 35/156/1 rushing to the Cowboys two weeks ago and 36/203/1 rushing to the Eagles two games back - they've been soft in this phase of late. Advantage, Bradshaw and the Colts.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs HOU (11 / 34 / 0 rush, 6 / 3 / 25 / 1 rec)

Another week, another receiving touchdown in the red zone for Bradshaw, who got to the flat in a hurry in the Colts' shotgun look in the red zone. Bradshaw didn't have a great day running the ball, but averaged more yards per carry than Trent Richardson yet again. Richardson did get a key carry inside the Texans 10-yard line early on, but Bradshaw is still the main red zone guy.

2014 Week 7 vs CIN (10 / 52 / 1 rush, 3 / 3 / 36 / 1 rec)

It was a seemingly typical Bradshaw game, efficient touches and touchdowns in the red zone. Bradshaw was actually out-touched by Trent Richardson in this one, as Richardson got much of the late-game carries, but Bradshaw was the red zone back again, and it paid off. Bradshaw scored on a 1-yard run and an impressive 10-yard pass, showing off his full repertoire of skills once again. The touches aren't high-volume, but Bradshaw has been efficient enough and used in the red zone enough to justify his high fantasy ranking.

2014 Week 8 vs PIT (6 / 35 / 1 rush, 7 / 7 / 52 / 0 rec)

With the Colts behind for most of the game, Bradshaw wasn't utilized much on the ground, but did pick up his first rushing touchdown early in the game with a patient 12-yard touchdown run. As usual, Bradshaw was highly targeted in the passing game as well, bringing in all seven of his targets for 52 yards and consistently making people miss in the open field. With Trent Richardson out, some may have expected the Colts to lean on Bradshaw more, but the early deficit prevented that.
