Dan Herron RB IND 5 months ago

Herron ran the ball twice for a total of four yards in Sunday's win over the Titans, finishing the 2015 season with 79 rushing yards on 25 carries.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Herron came over to Indianapolis from the Bills for the final seven games of the season, primarily providing depth in the Colts' backfield. The 26-year-old will be a restricted free agent, and likely won't see much of an increased role if he remains on the Colts roster in 2016.

Herron rushed for 14 yards on six carries in Sunday's loss to Miami.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Herron received his second highest total of carries of the season on Sunday, but failed to take any of them for more than five yards. Frank Gore has enjoyed a renaissance in Indianapolis and put together his second two-score game of the season on Sunday. The veteran should get the lion's share of carries in Week 17, but there may be plenty of opportunities to go around to the potential benefit of Herron. With the Colts in must-win mode and prepared to go with Option 4 at quarterback, expect them to ride the run against the Titans.

Herron had four carries for 16 yards and two receptions for five yards in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Herron looks set to get consistent carries as Frank Gore's backup with Ahmad Bradshaw (wrist) placed on injured reserve. However, he's not getting enough touches for viable fantasy value in most formats.

Herron had two carries for eight yards and three catches for 16 yards (on three targets) in Sunday's 45-10 loss to the Steelers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With Ahmad Bradshaw (wrist) placed on injured reserve, Herron is expected to serve as the top backup for the rest of the season, with his role including most of the passing-down work. The blowout nature of Sunday's game might have been a good thing for his involvement, if not for Pittsburgh's complete dominance of possession in the second half. Herron could get a few more targets in Week 14, as the Jaguars have been solid against the run but highly vulnerable to the pass.

Herron will be the backup running back to Frank Gore with Ahmad Bradshaw being placed on IR due to a wrist injury, ESPN reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Herron was with the Colts until he was released in September. He then signed with Buffalo until he was released by the Bills in November. He re-signed with the Colts last week and is now the No. 2 running back. It's possible he could split any backup carries with Zurlon Tipton however.

The Colts claimed Herron on waivers from the Bills on Thursday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Fellow running back Zurlon Tipton was waived in a corresponding to make room for Herron on the team's roster. Herron, who the Colts had waived from injured reserve in September, now returns to the team to provide Indy with backfield depth behind Frank Gore and Ahmad Bradshaw.

The Bills have released Herron.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With fellow running backs LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams healthy these days, Herron was deemed expendable by the Bills. He'll now look to catch on with a team in need of some backfield depth at this time.

Herron's teammates LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams are both healthy again coming out of the bye week.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Herron had a window of opportunity when both players were down a few games ago, but didn't really do much with his 11 carries, averaging just 3.4 yards per. At best, he's now the No. 3 back with Williams ready to return from his concussion.

Herron carried two times for nine yards in Sunday's loss to the Jaguars in London. He also caught his only target for three yards.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It looked like LeSean McCoy was going to be done for the day after he took a brutal blow on a costly fumble late in the game, but Shady returned and Herron stayed in his backup role. Even though he's passed Anthony Dixon in the pecking order, with a bye coming up and Karlos Williams likely to return from a concussion at some point, Herron's window for value in deep leagues may be closing.

Herron caught both of his targets for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals and did not record a carry.

Competitive Edge Analysis

LeSean McCoy took every single carry that went to a running back, so with Shady healthy and Karlos Williams (concussion) back at some point, Herron's role will remain quite minimal.
