2014 Outlook: Fantasy HandcuffLast updated on Sep-19-2014 by Larry Gold
Ahmad Bradshaw has always been under-appreciated in drafts; not because of his talent, but his propensity for injuries. He regularly battled foot and ankle problems during his time with the Giants and was sidelined in Week 4 for the remainder of the 2013 season due to a neck injury. To be fair, Bradshaw was far more impressive in his three week stint with the Colts than Richardson was all year, but the Colts gave up a lot to get Richardson, so it's their preference to see that trade through. While Bradshaw is expected to be cleared to play before the season starts (and is likely the first man up should Richardson stumble), it is difficult to assume he can get through a season injury-free at this point in his career. If you were burned by Richardson last year and want to corner the market on Colts running backs not named Richardson, you can grab Bradshaw very late in your draft. With Bradshaw, you get a fiery competitor who has a knack for finding the end zone.
Update: Through two weeks, Bradshaw has proven to be the more complete back in Indy. Look for the time share with Trent Richardson to continue tilting in Bradshaw's favor.
