|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 On the plus side, it seems fairly certain that Bradshaw will inherit the goaline work with Brandon Jacobs having been replaced by David Wilson, the teamís 1st round pick who is similar in size to Bradshaw.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: 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.

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.
