Description: Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw became a good fantasy option with Trent Richardson likely sideline by a hamstring injury.
Insight: Bradhaw combined for 87 yards and a touchdown, despite seeing just six carries. The Colts abandoned the run early after falling behind 21-3 in the second quarter or Bradshaw would have been a much better option.

Description: Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw becomes a very good fantasy option with Trent Richardson likely sideline by a hamstring injury.
Insight: Bradhaw is averaging almost 60 ypg and a touchdown playing behind Richardson. Now he'll likely have the workload all to himself.
 
10/19/2014 5:17:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw scored two touchdowns against the Bengals in Week 7.
Insight: Bradshaw scored a rushing and receiving touchdown. He now has seven scores on the season. Richardson still receives more touches, but Bradshaw gets all the scores, which makes him the better fantasy play.
 
10/13/2014 5:57:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw caught another touchdown pass on Thursday night against the Texans.
Insight: That makes five touchdown catches for Bradshaw this year. He is the more fantasy productive back for the Colts, but Trent Richardson continues to see the bulk of the carries.
 
10/5/2014 6:14:00 PM
Description: Indianapolis running back Ahmad Bradshaw out-played Trent Richardson, at least until he fumbled the ball in the final two minutes, to gave the Ravens one last chance to tie the game.
Insight: Bradshaw rushed 15 times for 68 yards and caught four balls for 17 yards. Still, I'd expect them to share the backfield going forward.
 
9/21/2014 6:08:00 PM
Description: Indianapolis running back Ahmad Bradshaw has become a valuable fantasy asset because Andrew Luck seeks him out near the goal line.
Insight: He's caught three touchdown passes this season, all from inside the 10-yard line. If Bradshaw can stay healthy, he'll be the primary pass receiver out of the backfield and he runs as well as Trent Richardson. It's just you can't overwork him.
 
9/15/2014 7:25:00 PM
Description: Indianapolis running back Ahmad Bradshaw missed part of practice this week, but he's a go for game time.
Insight: If Bradshaw can stay healthy, he'll be the primary pass receiver out of the backfield and he runs as well as Trent Richardson. It's just you can't overwork him.
 
9/12/2014 10:26:00 AM
Description: Indianapolis running back Ahmad Bradshaw proved to be a valuable asset in the season opener with five catches for 70 yards to go along with 15 yards on the ground.
Insight: It appears that Bradshaw will be the guy in passing situations and the two-minute offense and Trent Richardson will be the primary runner. If Bradshaw can stay healthy, of course. He was limited in Thursday's practice, but is expected to be ready to go in Week 2.
 
7/28/2014 11:57:00 AM
Description: Indianapolis running backs Ahmad Bradshaw and Trent Richardson appear to be the only backfield options and both should have fantasy value this season.
Insight: The Colts backfield took a hit over the past week with the loss of Vick Ballard (knee injury) and Chris Rainey (cut for off-the-field reasons). If Richardson falls on his face again, Bradshaw could end up being an RB2 or better.
 
7/24/2014 11:49:00 AM
Description: Indianapolis running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been cleared to practice, according to an Indianapolis Star report.
Insight: Bradshaw has always been a solid fantasy option, when healthy, but he's part of a three-man backfield including Trent Richardson and Vick Ballard. Richardson should get the most carries, though after averaging 3.0 yards per rush last season, there's little reason to be confident in him. Fantasy owners may be better off avoiding all three.

Insight: The Colts' backfield now consists of Bradshaw, Trent Richardson and Vick Ballard. Richardson should get the most carries, though after averaging 3.0 yards per rush last season, there's little reason to be confident in him. Fantasy owners may be better off avoiding all three.
 
10/8/2013 4:18:00 PM
Description: Profootballtalk is reporting that Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) has decided to undergo surgery, and will miss the remainder of the season.
Insight: Trent Richardson is the clear-cut No. 1 option for the Colts who will use Donald Brown as his backup now that Bradshaw has joined Vick Ballard on the sidelines.
 
10/4/2013 2:56:00 PM
Description: Neck surgery might be in Ahmad Bradshaw's future, but for now he's out indefinitely.
Insight: According to coach Chuck Pagano, Bradshaw will decide over the next few weeks. A surgery of that nature would put an end to Bradshaw's season.
 
10/3/2013 12:16:00 PM
Description: Neck surgery might be in Ahmad Bradshaw's future.
Insight: At least that's what the Indianapolis Star is suggesting. A surgery of that nature could put an end to Bradshaw's season. Obviously, we'll need to hear more before making a fantasy recommendation but it's probably safe to assume Bradshaw won't be playing this week.
 
10/2/2013 1:48:00 PM
Description: Indianapolis halfback Ahmad Bradshaw wasn't able to practice on Wednesday and he seems like a longshot for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: With Trent Richardson now as the top back in Indy, the Colts can afford to take their time with Bradshaw, who has been slow to recover from a neck injury. Even without competition for carries, Richardson won't have an easy time producing yards against Seattle's top-ranked run defense.
 
9/27/2013 1:25:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who rushed for 95 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Week 3, has been ruled out for Week 4 with a neck injury, according to ProFootballTalk.
Insight: Bradshaw missed practice all week and with Trent Richardson now on the roster, the Colts don't have to force anything with the injury-prone Bradshaw.
 
Hot9/15/2013 5:49:00 PM
Description: In his first game since Vick Ballard's season-ending knee injury, Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 65 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries.
Insight: Ballard ran 13 times for 63 yards in the opener while Bradshaw had just seven carries for 26 yards in a shared situation, and offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said this week that in an ideal situation the team would have a 50-50 split. However, Bradshaw is the guy with Ballard out. Backup Donald Brown had seven carries for 30 yards.
 
Hot9/13/2013 12:55:00 PM
Description: The seasoning injury that Indianapolis running back Vick Ballard suffered in Thursday's practice will make Ahmad Bradshaw the unquestioned No. 1 starter on the Colts.
Insight: Ballard had rushed 13 times for 63 yards in the opener while Ahmad Bradshaw had just seven carries for 26 yards in a shared situation. The injury will elevate Bradshaw to the primary running back role with Donald Brown as his backup.
 
9/12/2013 1:17:00 PM
Description: According to Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, Colts OC Pep Hamilton said Ahmad Bradshaw's role will continue to expand but added that the ideal workload split between Bradshaw and Vick Ballard is 50/50.
Insight: Bradshaw missed a good portion of training camp due to a foot injury and only had seven carries for 26 yards to Ballard's 13 for 63 in the opener. Bradshaw should emerge as the more valuable fantasy player but still won't be a starter if Andrew Luck keeps stealing rushing touchdowns.
 
9/8/2013 12:50:00 PM
Description: Ahmad Bradshaw is listed behind Vick Ballard on the Colts' running back depth chart for Week 1 against Oakland. SOURCE: Philip Wilson, Indianapolis Star
Insight: Bradshaw wasn't able to create separation between himself and Ballard in the preseason and now he's actually listed behind him heading into Sunday's season opener. Of course, all he needs is a touchdown to give fantasy owners a good week. We wouldn't recommend either Ballard or Bradshaw as anything more than a flex play in Week 1.
