|Itís hard not to like Bradshaw as a football player. Despite his size, he runs hard and is willing to take on any defender to gain tough yards when they are needed, perhaps making him the toughest player in the league on a pound for pound basis. He can catch the ball out of the backfield, heís willing to play banged up and he produces when he plays (12.9 FPts/G over the past two seasons). Unfortunately, it can be difficult to like Bradshaw that much as a fantasy player due to his inability to stay healthy (four missed games in 2011 due to a stress fracture). On the plus side, it seems fairly certain that Bradshaw will inherit the goaline work with Brandon Jacobs having been replaced by David Wilson, the teamís 1st round pick who is similar in size to Bradshaw. Barring injury, Bradshaw will get the majority of the work and he rates as a mid-tier RB2 in 2012, one whose upside is matched his injury risk.

FF Today's Take: Bradshaw injured his wrist in yesterday's game against the Bucs and will be replaced on the roster by Zurlon Tipton. Dan Herron is also on the roster and will likely be the immediate backup to Frank Gore.

FF Today's Take: Whatever snaps Bradshaw sees on Sunday versus New England - if any - figure to be extremely limited. However, Hamilton's endorsement only serves to support the notion that Bradshaw will start seeing fairly significant playing time no later than Week 7 with Frank Gore taking most of the work on early downs. Bradshaw is unlikely to repeat last year's six receiving touchdowns, but his contributions in the passing game figure to make him a very strong flex option moving forward.

FF Today's Take: Bradshaw broke his leg in Week 11 last season and was suspended for one-game for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. With uninspiring options behind Frank Gore, Bradshaw can quickly rise to the No.2 spot on the depth chart and is worth a roster spot in deeper leagues.
