|Indianapolis brought in Ahmad Bradshaw last season to add to the competition at the running back position and push Donald Brown. Three games into the 2013 season and Bradshaw was paying dividends for fantasy owners reaching pay dirt twice. On par with his recent past, injuries prevented him from playing in 16 games for the third straight season. He has had foot issues for years but can still be effective with limited carries, which is why the team re-signed him to a one-year pact for the 2014 season. Bradshaw will give the Colts a decent option to spell Trent Richardson and will handle the primary backup duties until Vick Ballard proves he is healthy enough to handle an expended role. Of course that role greatly minimizes his fantasy value this season but as long as he remains second on the depth chart he has value as a handcuff to Richardson investors.

FFToday's Take: Beat writer Mike Chappell later revealed on Twitter that Bradshaw's injury is a fractured fibula, meaning a trip to season-ending IR is imminent. It is a crushing blow to the Colts, who lose an integral part of the running game and the short-passing game in the process. Trent Richardson should move into more of a lead-back role while Dwayne Allen and Reggie Wayne should see their red-zone opportunities increase.

FFToday's Take: Bradshaw has been one of the bright spots this fantasy season, rankings 10th in standard leagues and 8th in PPR leagues among running backs, easily out-performing his 11th-round ADP. Trent Richardson will likely see a bump in opportunities. Dan Herron will move into the backup role and is worth a look in deeper leagues.
