Colts staying the course with Herron     -- Mon Jan 5 4:40 pm --

Likely in line for another heavy workload versus Denver
The Colts (plan to) stay the course with Dan Herron in spite of the fumbles, HC Chuck Pagano says. Reducing touches might kill a guy’s confidence. (Stephen Holder on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Indianapolis knows its other options aren't all that appealing, which is likely the backbone for Pagano arriving at this decision. Most NFL coaches have quick hooks when it comes to backs that have ball-security issues, so another early fumble this week could easily lead to an unexpected workload for Zurlon Tipton. With that said, expect Herron to be a key part of the Colts' game plan against the Broncos coming off his 141-total yard, 10-catch, one-touchdown performance against the Bengals.
No carries or catches for Trent Richardson     -- Mon Jan 5 8:00 am --

Colts let Dan Herron carry the load
Shouldering the heaviest load of his career — the Colts sat Trent Richardson for most of Sunday's win with an illness — Dan Herron responded with 141 all-purpose yards, the most from a Colts' running back in three seasons. (Indianapolis Star)

FF Today's Take: You could see this one coming. Richardson missed practice time earlier in the week due to "illness" and while he was active on Sunday he only saw the field late in the game after Herron fumbled twice. Rookie Zurlon Tipton was the No.2 running back. Richardson is falling out of favor in Indy and can't be trusted in playoff leagues or daily formats.
Injury Colts fear broken ankle for Bradshaw     -- Mon Nov 17 11:45 am --

MRI on Monday
Indianapolis Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw's season is in serious jeopardy after he suffered what the Colts believe to be a broken ankle against the New England Patriots on Sunday night, a league source told The Indianapolis Star. (Indianapolis Star)

FF Today'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.
