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 | Trent Richardson probable

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 12:27:30 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as probable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson should be able to play this week and may receive a majority of the carries. He does have a favorable matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars this week but may be too expensive on FantasyScore at $5,600. Richardson could be an option at running back or the flex position if owners are comfortable with using him.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson appears to be over his illness and should be able to play in Week 12. Richardson likely will receive a majority of the work at running back with Ahmad Bradshaw out for the season. Richardson costs $5,600 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to use other options.

Colts | Trent Richardson not practicing

Wed, 19 Nov 2014 11:00:30 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (illness) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.

Fantasy Tip: It's still early in the week, and there is time for Richardson to get back on the practice field, but there will be much better options available to you in FantasyScore this week.

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 | Trent Richardson off injury report

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 07:28:47 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is not on the injury report for Week 9, and should be able to play Monday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson ($4,600; 9.2% of cap) has been an underwhelming play all season, and Ahmad Bradshaw has stolen the thunder. Bradshaw will set you back $6,300 on FantasyScore this week and is a decent option against his former club the New York Giants.

Colts | Trent Richardson on the field

Thu, 30 Oct 2014 09:34:41 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson was active for the team's Week 8 game but did not receive playing time. Richardson may be on track to play in Week 9 but would continue to share time with Ahmad Bradshaw. Richardson costs $4,600 on FantasyScore but may not be the best option to use this week.

Colts | Trent Richardson will dress

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 11:54:35 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is active for the team's Week 8 game.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson could be limited because of the injury, so he is a risky option for owners this week. Richardson costs $4,600 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to look to use other options at running back or the flex position.
