Recent Game Summaries

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.

2014 Week 4 vs TEN (9 / 32 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 20 / 1 rec)

It was tough sledding on the ground for the Colts all day, but Bradshaw still finished with the Colts' best yard-per-carry average of the day with 3.6. The Colts are keeping Bradshaw's usage down for now, and he only had nine carries in this one, but his red zone use and dependability in the passing game keeps him alive as a flex option. Bradshaw once again caught a touchdown pass, which included powering through an initial tackle attempt and outracing the defenders to the end zone on a 15-yard score. As long as he stays healthy, which the Colts have as a top priority, he'll continue to be efficient.

Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw in walking boot (Sun Sep 28, 10:37 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (ankle) tweaked his ankle in the Week 4 game against the Tennessee Titans, and was forced to leave the game briefly. He was able to return, but was spotted after the game with a walking boot on his left foot as a precaution.

Our View: Bradshaw is still a solid RB2 start any time he is on the field in this offense. He has caught four touchdowns already and is still running better than starter Trent Richardson.

Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw, Reggie Wayne return (Thu Sep 25, 02:43 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw and WR Reggie Wayne fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 25, after getting the day off Wednesday, Sept. 24.

Our View: We have Wayne as a WR3 and Bradshaw as a RB2. The Colts offensive line isn't great but Bradshaw has been successful despite that, while Wayne has clearly lost a few steps but has still been mildly effective for his fantasy owners.

Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw gets day off (Wed Sep 24, 03:28 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (rest) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 24.

Our View: Bradshaw is a fantastic talent, but he has gotten banged up quite a bit during his pro career. It's wise for the Colts to give him time off when they can.
