Time share not hurting either of Colts' backs
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

As unlikely as it seems, the Colts have found a way to keep both Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw productive, as both topped double figures in Fantasy scoring yet again in Week 7 against the Bengals.

Both players have managed to reach double figures in Fantasy scoring in three of the last four games, and the duo has combined for nine touchdowns; seven have come from Bradshaw. The Colts are unafraid to run the ball or throw it to either player, and they have combined for 214 touches in seven games.

Most of the time, the running back by committee is harmful for Fantasy purposes, but both players in Indianapolis have been able to carve out their roles while remaining productive. Bradshaw is the better player here, but both should remain solid options heading into Week 8 against the Steelers.

Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw scores as runner, receiver Sunday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw destroyed the visiting Bengals on the ground and through the air Sunday.

Bradshaw, who took over as the featured back when Trent Richardson left due to injury, rushed for 52 yards on 10 carries, including a one-yard scoring plunge three minutes into the second quarter. He also racked up his sixth receiving touchdown of the season, a 10-yarder early in the fourth. He snagged all three passes thrown his way for 36 yards.

The afternoon did not start out so bright for Bradshaw, who fumbled near the end zone in the first quarter.

Bradshaw and his Colts play at Pittsburgh next Sunday.

Ahmad Bradshaw does it again
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw was again a solid Fantasy option in Week 6 at Houston. He had 11 carries for 34 yards and three catches for 25 yards and a touchdown.

Bradshaw has now scored five receiving touchdowns, and he's reached double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league four times. He's had at least eight points in five games, but can he keep this up?

I still consider Bradshaw a sell-high candidate, mostly because of injury concern. He's clearly the better running back in Indianapolis -- Fantasy or real life -- ahead of Trent Richardson, but you might want to get something great in return for Bradshaw if possible.

He has a history of foot problems, and last year he suffered a season-ending neck injury early in the year. After Week 4, he left the stadium in a walking boot as a precaution for his foot.

You also have to be concerned if he can keep giving you the production you need as a receiver. When the Colts get near the goal line, Richardson is still the running back of choice.

Now, I'm not saying trade Bradshaw just to trade him. While he's healthy, he clearly has the chance to be productive, and he helped me as a start in this week's Start 'Em and Sit' Em.

But if someone offers you something great in return for Bradshaw, you might consider making a deal. At some point, he could get hurt based on his track record, although we hope that doesn't happen to him this year.

Colts' Ahmad Bradshaw scores fifth receiving touchdown
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw scored his fifth receiving touchdown of the season in a Week 6 victory over the Texans in Houston on Thursday.

Bradshaw caught a short pass from Andrew Luck and waltzed his way into the end zone from 5 yards out in the opening quarter. He compiled 59 yards of total offense, rushing for 34 yards on 11 attempts (3.1 yards per carry) and hauling three of the six passes thrown his way for 25 yards and a score in a 33-28 victory.

Bradshaw leads all running backs with five receiving touchdowns and is behind only Randall Cobb and Julius Thomas for most touchdown receptions this season. He has rushed for 284 yards on the ground and has registered 176 receiving yards through six games.

The Colts will host the Bengals in Week 7.

Enthusiasm for Ahmad Bradshaw warranted?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

With a season-high 15 carries for 68 yards (along with four catches for 17) Week 5 against the Ravens, Ahmad Bradshaw seemingly became the Colts' preferred backfield option over Trent Richardson.

But he had been trending the opposite way. He played only about one-third of the team's snaps in Week 4, getting less than a dozen touches for the third time in four games.

Statistically speaking, Bradshaw is easily the superior back of the two, but the Colts seem to think Richardson is better suited for a starter's workload. And given Bradshaw's injury history and 28 years of age, they wouldn't be entirely off base.

To me, the distribution of workload is still enough for me to avoid Bradshaw if I had another serviceable running back on my roster, as in one I could trust to score more than the five points Bradshaw did in standard CBSSports.com leagues last week.

The Texans, who the Colts visit in Week 6, are indeed vulnerable against the run, ranking 25th, which is probably why Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard are so high on Bradsahaw this week, but doesn't that also give the Colts more incentive to lean on Richardson if they jump out to an early lead, as expected? I could see it going either way.
