From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 22): Bradshaw is a bonafide RB1 in PPR leagues with a heavy involvement in the passing games, especially near the goal line. Even with a less than feature back load, in this offense, Bradshaw can be an everyweek starter as long as he stays healthy.

Week 4: vs Tennessee Titans

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs DEN (3 / 15 / 0 rush, 6 / 5 / 70 / 0 rec)

Making his case to take the starting job away from Trent Richardson, Bradshaw ran for a higher average (5 vs. 3.3 YPC) and was more involved in the passing game. While Richardson started the game and got most of the snaps in the first few series, Bradshaw was the main guy once the Colts went to a spread hurry-up offense. Bradshaw finished with 44 snaps to Richardson's 31, and should become the Colts main guy as long as he can stay healthy.

2014 Week 2 vs PHI (13 / 70 / 0 rush, 5 / 5 / 26 / 2 rec)

Still the most versatile back in the Colts' arsenal, Bradshaw continued to show his receiving ability in this offense with two goal line touchdown receptions. Those won't be there every week, but it's clear that the Colts prefer him in the Colts' passing sets. Bradshaw saw 29 snaps on passing downs as opposed to just nine for Richardson. He'll continue to be the better fantasy play, especially while he's receiving the goal line work.

2014 Week 3 vs JAX (9 / 65 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 18 / 1 rec)

While Bradshaw saw just 11 total touches on the day, he turned them into 88 yards and a touchdown for another solid fantasy day. Bradshaw was a hair away from one or two more scores in the red zone as well, where he's used quite heavily. The Colts won't give him "bell-cow" duties, both because of his injury history and their investment in Richardson, but as a rotational back he's still be very effective and a touchdown magnet. He's yet to allow a pressure in pass protection, he's very effective in the passing game and his running continues to impress.

Colts | RBs to split the load (Fri Sep 12, 09:06 AM) - Indianapolis Colts RBs Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw are expected to split carries in Week 2. Richardson rushed only six times for 20 yards in Week 1 because the team fell behind early. However, in his limited work, he showed improved vision and decisiveness.

Our View: Richardson is almost droppable at this point. Bradshaw is a flex play with half of the backfield, and if the Colts are willing to turn Richardson into a backup, Bradshaw could have even more value. New Colt Dion Lewis could also be good to own if Bradshaw's long injury history adds another chapter.
