Colts | Dan Herron finishes game

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 14:34:44 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson started in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns, but RB Dan Herron finished the game, and they used him on the game-winning drive. Herron played 47 of the team's 81 offensive snaps, while Richardson played 32 snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Herron ($5,500) nor Richardson ($4,300) did much on the ground against the Browns. The Houston Texans' run D has been adequate of late, and if Herron and Richardson continue to split reps, neither will be a very attractive FantasyScore option in Week 15.

Colts | Trent Richardson's role won't be reduced

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 15:27:19 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson won't have his role reduced by head coach Chuck Pagano after RB Dan Herron outplayed Richardson for the second straight week in Week 13 against the Washington Redskins. Herron has run for 153 yards and a touchdown in the last two games, while Richardson has just 54 yards rushing. "He's a professional, he understands," Pagano said. "None of us can ever get away from working at our craft regardless of the circumstance, regardless of adversity, just keep grinding, just keep working, just keep swinging the ax. If he keeps swinging the ax, the tree will fall. If you put the ax down, the tree is never coming down. Just keep chopping wood and good things will happen."

Fantasy Tip: That said, we all know that Herron ($5,500) is the better fantasy football option, especially in leagues that reward receptions like FantasyScore. Richardson ($4,400) will get a chance to play his old mates in the Cleveland Browns this weekend, but he doesn't inspire confidence in daily leagues, even as a flex option.

Colts | Dan Herron outplays T-Rich

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 10:26:20 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron led the team in rushing for the second straight week despite fumbling for the second straight week. Herron had 88 yards and a touchdown on eight carries, while RB Trent Richardson totaled just 12 yards on the same amount of carries in the win over the Washington Redskins. Herron has averaged 7.7 yards per carry in the last two weeks, and he's also contributed in the passing game, with QB Andrew Luck targeting him seven times in the last two weeks, and Herron has caught all seven targets. "He's a talented, talented guy, and I think we've seen that out of him," Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said. "He's quick, he's fast to hit the hole and once he gets outside, he's got some long speed; I think we all found that out."

Fantasy Tip: After another solid performance ahead of Richardson, Herron is clearly the running back to own on this team. Herron also has much more upside now at FantasyScore, where catches are rewarded. Herron should be another fine play in daily leagues against the Cleveland Browns in Week 14.

Colts | Dan Herron having fumbling problems

Sun, 30 Nov 2014 18:11:27 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron lost a fumble in the second quarter of the Week 13 game against the Washington Redskins, his second in as many games. "Have to keep working on it," Herron said Sunday, Nov. 30. "It's one of those things. You hate for it to happen. You just have to keep working on it in practice." Herron was able to finish with 88 yards on eight carries, including a 49-yard touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Herron is proving to be more useful than Trent Richardson right now, as the team looks for someone to fill the void left after the injury to Ahmad Bradshaw. Herron can be a useful option in FantasyScore, and might see more touches if he can learn to hang onto the rock.

Colts | Dan Herron starting

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 09:54:58 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron has been announced as the team's starting running back for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Herron should receive some carries in Week 12, and there is a chance he could receive more than first expected. Herron only costs $3,600 on FantasyScore and could be a cheap flex option.

Colts | Pagano has confidence in Dan Herron

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 14:50:09 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is expected to take on a much larger role in the offense with the season-ending injury to RB Ahmad Bradshaw (leg). "Now Boom (Daniel Herron) will have an opportunity. We've seen glimpses of Boom in the preseason and at other times. We know he's more than capable. I know Boom will prepare. He always prepares as a starter. I think he'll do fine, and he'll take advantage of this opportunity," Pagano said. Pagano also refused to say whether RB Trent Richardson would be the team's third-down back.

Fantasy Tip: Herron will no doubt be cheap in the coming weeks, and he could be a sleeper play immediately against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12. Richardson's FantasyScore value should increase, as well, especially if he's in on passing downs.

Colts | Dan Herron to see expanded role

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 13:09:34 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is likely to see his snaps increase out of the backfield after the injury to RB Ahmad Bradshaw (leg).

Fantasy Tip: The Colts have a good matchup in Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but it's hard to say how much Herron will be involved behind Trent Richardson. Consider Herron a desperation flex play at FantasyScore for a cheap price.
