From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): What more can we say about Bradshaw that we haven't already? His energy and drive are inspiring, and in an Andrew Luck-led offense, they are producing a lot of yards and scores. Trent Richardson is banged up now. It's probably a minor thing, but the point is that Bradshaw's value continues to inch up into solid/strong RB2 territory, with a higher weekly ceiling than originally envisioned.

Week 8: at Pittsburgh Steelers

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. The Colts' backs stomped a wounded Bengals' defensive front last week, collectively posting 34/171/1 on the ground - Trent Richardson actually went over 100 yards combined with 14/77/0 rushing and 4/41/0 receiving, while Ahmad Bradshaw scored twice more last week (10/52/1 rushing with 3/36/1 receiving) to run his season total to seven total TDs (70/336/1 rushing with 24/2121/6 receiving). It's all good for the Colts coming into Week 8. The Steelers allowed 30/132/0 rushing to the Texans last week (but both of their running backs had receiving TDs); Cleveland had 38/158/3 rushing vs. the Steelers two games ago. This is not a strong defensive front as of Week 8, friends. Advantage, Indianapolis.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs BAL (15 / 68 / 0 rush, 5 / 4 / 17 / 0 rec)

Another game, another example of the Colts' trust in Bradshaw, who had 19 touches to Trent Richardson's 13. Bradshaw was the back in the game for the Colts final drive, and was a big part in the Colts' 74-yard drive that chewed up 5:21 off the clock. But, Bradshaw also fumbled the ball to end the drive, a killer both on the field and in fantasy world. The fumble shouldn't impact the Colts' trust in him going forward, as he's been phenomenal in all aspects of the game going forward.

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.
