Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is expected to be fine after leaving the team's Week 7 game because of a hamstring injury.

Colts | Indy RBs to split the load

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 06:06:49 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RBs Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw are expected to split carries in Week 2. Richardson rushed only six times for 20 yards in Week 1 because the team fell behind early. However, in his limited work, he showed improved vision and decisiveness.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson ($4,200; 8.4% of your cap) is a decent flex option on FantasyScore. Bradshaw ($5,300; 10.6%) may be a little pricey given his injury history and timeshare at the position.

Colts | Trent Richardson off to slow start

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 19:31:25 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson is off to a slow start in training camp and the preseason, posting just 34 yards in 14 attempts. At 2.4 yards per carry, that's even less than the 2.9 yards per carry he averaged in his disappointing 2014. "Trent, he needs to answer the bell and do his job to the best of his ability," general manager Ryan Grigson said Wednesday, Aug. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson has gone from an early-round fantasy option to a mid- to late-round pick with fantasy owners crossing their fingers under the table.

Colts | Trent Richardson practicing

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 11:35:15 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (undisclosed) is participating in practice Wednesday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: The team could take their time with Richardson and limit what he does during practice for the next few days. Richardson probably is the leading candidate for the starting running back job and should be considered a risky No. 2 running back.

Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw looking good

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 10:13:03 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw has been consistent so far in camp, and he's not showing any limitations with his neck, which caused him to miss the final 13 games of last season. "He looks fantastic," head coach Chuck Pagano said. "He has found the groove to make it. We know how tough Ahmad is. We know how he's wired, so I'm not going to be pulling back on the reins. He's one of those guys we have to protect them from themselves. It will take care of itself. He's not one of those guys that will think about what he went through."

Fantasy Tip: Bradshaw is an interesting fantasy option. He's extremely risky because of his health, but if he enters the season fully healthy and Trent Richardson continues to be bothered by injuries or poor performance, Bradshaw could easily usurp him as the top back for the Colts. Bradshaw's stock is slowly rising right now.

Colts | Vick Ballard tears Achilles'

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 16:08:49 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during practice Friday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Ballard likely will miss the entire season because of the injury. Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw probably will get a majority of the reps at the position unless the team adds another back. Richardson should be considered a starting running back in all fantasy leagues, while Bradshaw probably would be a later-round pick that could be a No. 4 or 5 running back on a team.
