San Diego Chargers RB Danny Woodhead faces the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 2, and late in 2014, the Bengals allowed 80 yards receiving to Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell and 85 yards receiving to Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron.
Fantasy Tip: Woodhead ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) appeared to be both the goal-line back and the primary pass-catching back in Week 1, and given Cincinnati's recent issues defending running backs out of the backfield, Woodhead could be a great option to free up some cap room at FantasyScore.
Sun, 06 Sep 2015 11:57:12 -0700
Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron (shoulder) was waived/injured Sunday, Sept. 6. He will move to the Reserve/Injured list if he clears waivers.
Fantasy Tip: Josh Robinson ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Vick Ballard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) are now candidates to be the No. 2 running back with Herron out. Neither player likely will see a lot of playing time while Frank Gore is healthy but would be waiver wire options if Gore suffers an injury.
Thu, 03 Sep 2015 17:08:25 -0700
Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron (shoulder) and RB Vick Ballard (hamstring) suffered injuries in the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3, and will not return to the game.
Fantasy Tip: Herron and Ballard are candidates for backup jobs with Herron believed to be the top candidate for the No. 2 running back job. Owners should look for updates in the next day or two to see if they are dealing with serious injuries. Herron could be a late-round option in deeper leagues, while Ballard does not have much value.
Sat, 08 Aug 2015 09:40:10 -0700
Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is currently the primary backup to RB Frank Gore.
Fantasy Tip: Herron likely will see limited time during the season as long as Gore remains healthy. Owners could consider selecting Herron in the late rounds as a handcuff to Gore or as depth at the position.
Sun, 05 Apr 2015 08:53:37 -0700
Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') is doing well in his rehab from a torn Achilles' tendon but there is no timetable for his return to the field, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Ballard is expected to compete with RB Dan Herron for the No. 2 running back job if he is healthy.
Fantasy Tip: Ballard missed the entire 2014 season because of the injury and may sit out some of the offseason workouts. Ballard and Herron likely will compete for the backup job during training camp and the preseason. Owners should consider the winner of the competition as a later-round draft choice.
Wed, 01 Apr 2015 09:34:25 -0700
Indianapolis Colts exclusive rights free-agent RB Dan Herron has signed his tender offer Wednesday, April 1. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Fantasy Tip: Herron had some good games near the end of this past season but will enter the 2015 season as the backup to Frank Gore. Herron could be a handcuff to Gore in drafts next season or a later-round pick for depth at running back.
Thu, 05 Mar 2015 14:48:00 -0800
Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron was tendered as an exclusive rights free agent Thursday, March 5.
Fantasy Tip: Herron held his own last season with Ahmad Bradshaw sidelined and Trent Richardson disappointing. He was an especially nice asset in the passing game and subsequently in point-per-reception scoring leagues. He may not have the same role next season, but keep tabs on Indy's backfield situation as the offseason progresses.
Tue, 20 Jan 2015 07:05:53 -0800
Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is more of a backup than a starter, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Wells.
Fantasy Tip: Herron had some bright spots, but the team clearly struggled with the running game after Ahmad Bradshaw (leg) went down. The team's RB situation will be one to watch, but Herron might be worth a flyer as a RB4 or RB5 in traditional drafts.
Fri, 16 Jan 2015 17:14:36 -0800
Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron has had at least eight carries in a game eight times this year, and the Colts are 8-0 in those games.
Fantasy Tip: Herron didn't touch the ball at all in the Colts' loss to the Patriots earlier this year, but the Colts have been leaning on him in the playoffs. He has 236 total yards in two postseason games, and he could be worth a look at FantasyScore at his $6,400 salary (12.8% of cap).
Sun, 11 Jan 2015 17:45:16 -0800
Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron ran 23 times for 63 yards and a score and added eight catches for 32 yards in the team's 24-13 win over the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 11.
Fantasy Tip: Indianapolis' running game continue to struggle with efficiency, but Herron still managed a solid all-around performance and is clearly the lead back for the Colts.
Thu, 08 Jan 2015 10:24:49 -0800
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson's role is unclear leading up to the divisional round game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 11, after he was demoted to third on the depth chart behind RBs Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton in the team's wild-card playoff win. Richardson only played on one offensive snap last weekend. "We're going to evaluate the situation as we go through the week and we'll know more as we go through the week," head coach Chuck Pagano said.
Fantasy Tip: Richardson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should be ignored at all costs in the divisional round against the Broncos. We may not even see him in the backfield at all in this one if the Colts have to throw a lot.
Tue, 06 Jan 2015 15:51:52 -0800
Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron will return to a starting role against the Denver Broncos in the divisional round game Sunday, Jan. 11, after fumbling twice in the team's wild-card playoff win last weekend. Herron was pulled from the game in favor of RB Zurlon Tipton after fumbling the second time, but he returned to the game later.
Fantasy Tip: Herron ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) shouldn't be recommended at FantasyScore this weekend while going against the Broncos, one of the better run-stopping defensive units in the NFL this season.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tue, 03 Dec 2013 12:47:54 -0800
