Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown made his first start of the season in Week 13 against the Tennessee Titans. "Donnie earned the opportunity the way he was working and running the football. Felt like, we're still going to use two backs, but earned the opportunity to get in there and that," head coach Chuck Pagano said Sunday, Dec. 1. Brown finished with 54 rushing yards on 14 carries with a touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: Brown is worth a look as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play in leagues of 12 or more teams as long as he is in the starting lineup and seeing a majority of the touches in the Indianapolis backfield.

Sun, 01 Dec 2013 06:36:07 -0800
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson has been demoted on the depth chart, and RB Donald Brown has been named the team's starter.
Fantasy Tip: This news is not much of a surprise as Richardson has struggled of late. Brown should be considered a low-end RB1 moving forward.

The Indianapolis Colts do not plan to change their usage of their running backs, despite RB Trent Richardson's struggles and RB Donald Brown's success. "We don't plan on changing our rotation with our backs," offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said. "We've always been a running back by committee bunch, so we're going to continue to do that."

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson said he doesn't think he's having that bad of a season since being traded to the Colts, despite averaging only 2.8 yards per carry. "I'm not frustrated at all because I think I've been playing good," Richardson said. "If you turn on the film, I don't have any missed assignments. I haven't had any missed reads. I've been playing good. Stuff just hasn't matched up like we thought it would when I'm in there. I think teams match up differently when I come in." Head coach Chuck Pagano also somewhat agrees that opposing defenses have sold out against the run when Richardson is on the field. RB Donald Brown remains the complementary back to Richardson, and he's stated his case for a bigger role on offense with his performances the past few weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Whichever way you want to look at it, Brown is gaining momentum and more touches out of the backfield, making Richardson more of a weak RB2 or flex play each week. However, he may retain some value in point-per-reception leagues if they continue to look to get him in space with short passes like they did in Week 11.

Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown appears to have seized control of the top spot on the depth chart ahead of RB Trent Richardson, and his performance in the Week 11 game against the Tennessee Titans Thursday, Nov. 14, delighted head coach Chuck Pagano. "Donald had an exceptional football game," Pagano said Friday, Nov. 15. "He is playing really well, running hard, hitting the hole, (gaining) yards after contact."
Fantasy Tip: Brown has emerged as a solid RB2 or flex fantasy option, blowing past Richardson, even if Pagano isn't ready to concede the job is Brown's.

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (ankle) is expected to play in the team's Week 10 game, despite missing two straight days of practice.
Fantasy Tip: T-Rich's value has been down since coming to the Colts, and it's not inspiring that he hasn't practiced yet this week. Donald Brown figures to see plenty of work even if Richardson plays against the St. Louis Rams, and the matchup makes him a nice PPR sleeper. Consider Richardson a weak RB2 or decent RB3 this week.

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 6.
Fantasy Tip: Head coach Chuck Pagano did not mention anything being up with Richardson when he spoke to reporters, so that would point to the idea that nothing major is going on here. If Richardson is slowed at all, Donald Brown would be the main beneficiary.
