|Jordan Todman gives the team a little more youthfulness for no huddle situations and passing downs but remains a long shot to provide any substantial fantasy contributions in 2016. Nevertheless his experience over the other options will likely give him the upper hand when cuts are made. Tyler Varga is an undrafted free agent holdover from 2015 that could sneak onto the roster with a quality showing during training camp. The dark horse to keep an eye on in the backup running back battle is Josh Ferguson, an undrafted free agent out of Illinois. He is a quick, open space runner in the mold of a Tavon Austin or Darren Sproles that would add another dynamic to the offense if he makes the cut.
|Colts sign RB Stevan Ridley|
Should make team as No.2 back
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Aug 28, 10:00 am
|The Indianapolis Colts have signed running back Stevan Ridley, the team announced Sunday.
The Colts are searching for a backup behind starter Frank Gore, who had 227 more carries than his next-closest teammate last season. The backups behind Gore have combined to rush for only 91 yards on 49 carries in three preseason games.
FFToday's Take: Ridley was released by the Lions last week but should stick with the Colts who have little depth behind Frank Gore. Jordan Todman, Robert Turbin and rookie Josh Ferguson have failed to impress so it's not inconceivable that Ridley is Gore's backup Week 1.
|Colts' RB Robert Turbin arrested |

|Indianapolis Colts running back Robert Turbin was arrested for possession of marijuana last week in Logan, Utah. Marijuana is a banned substance in the NFL, and the punishment through the league for a first offense is suspension without pay for up to four regular or post-season games. (Indianapolis Star)|
FFToday's Take: The arrest came after Turbin ran a stop sign. He'll now be at risk of suspension by the league. Turbin has bounced around the league including stops in Dallas, Cleveland and Seattle. This incident will hurt his chances at becoming Frank Gore's backup. Jordan Todman and rookie Josh Ferguson are next up on the RB depth chart.
