Ahmad Bradshaw RB IND 5 Days
Bradshaw had 10 carries for 52 rushing yards and a touchdown, as well as three catches on three targets for 36 yards and another score in Sunday's 27-0 win over the Bengals.
Bradshaw's rushing touchdown was his first this season, but his receiving score was his sixth, as he now leads all NFL running backs in receiving touchdowns. Starter Trent Richardson suffered a hamstring injury in the fourth quarter and did not return, though the Colts were up 24-0 at the time with no reason to force him back in. If Richardson is unable to play in Week 8 against the Steelers, Bradshaw will get an even bigger workload against a defense allowing over 111 rushing yards per game this season (16th-best in the NFL).

Bradshaw had 11 carries for 34 yards and caught 3-of-6 targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 33-28 win over the Texans.
Bradshaw shockingly has five receiving touchdowns through six games, as he's proven quite adept at getting open near the front pylon in the flats. While he's a fairly talented receiver and could add a few more this year, he only had three touchdowns among his 139 career receptions coming into the season. Bradshaw is still getting a bit less of the early-down work than Trent Richardson, but the 28-year-old is the top option on passing downs for a team that throws the ball quite effectively.

Bradshaw finished Sunday's game versus the Ravens with 15 carries for 68 yards and four receptions for 17 yards.
Bradshaw's 15 carries Sunday marked a season-high, as did his 19 total touches. In comparison, teammate Trent Richardson was handed nine carries and caught four passes. The veteran Bradshaw led the Colts in rushing and his 4.5 yards per carry was boosted by a long-run of 20 yards. However, Sunday's performance ended Bradshaw's streak of three straight games with a receiving touchdown. Additionally, he still doesn't have a rushing score on the season. Nonetheless, Bradshaw should be encouraged by his expanded involvement Sunday and will now focus on preparing for Thursday's Week 6 game against the Texans.

Bradshaw (rest) sat out Wednesday's practice, the Colts' official site reports.
Though Bradshaw tweaked his ankle this past Sunday, it's evidently not an injury concern for him at this time, based on the Colts' current practice participation/injury report. Look for Bradshaw to either be listed as probable or be altogether removed from the Colts' injury report in advance of Sunday's game against the Ravens

Bradshaw left Sunday's game against the Titans with an ankle injury, and while he was able to return, he was wearing a walking boot after the game as a precaution, ESPN reports.
Bradshaw was solid yet again Sunday, rushing nine times for 32 yards and catching two passes on two targets for 20 receiving yards and a touchdown. Never known as a great pass-catcher, Bradshaw has now scored four receiving touchdowns in his last three games. With Trent Richardson continuing to get a bigger share of the carries, Bradshaw has maintained his fantasy value through a passing game led by Andrew Luck, who leads the league in passing yards and passing touchdowns this season.

Bradshaw had nine carries for 65 rushing yards and two catches on three targets for 18 receiving yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Jaguars.
Trent Richardson finished with five more carries than Bradshaw, though he turned them into eight fewer yards. The Colts seem comfortable playing both backs roughly equally, which is a tough situation from a fantasy perspective. Bradshaw has been particularly good in the passing game, as he now has three receiving touchdowns in the last two games. While Richardson will continue to limit Bradshaw's fantasy upside, the latter appears to be the higher-upside play heading into Week 4 against the Titans, who are much better against the pass than the run this season.

Bradshaw had five receptions for 26 yards and two touchdowns, adding 13 carries for 70 yards, in Monday's 30-27 loss to the Eagles.
The encouraging performance comes on the heels of Colts coach Chuck Pagano admitting that Bradshaw and Trent Richardson will split snaps based on game flow. Bradshaw proceeded to outplay his counterpart for a second straight week, though Richardson played above the incredibly low bar that he's set. Bradshaw still looks like the far better player, and while it's fair to consider him injury prone, he looks both healthy and explosive through two games. According to Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, Bradshaw took 46 snaps in Monday's game, compared to 31 for Richardson. Though the game situation was quite different from last week's, the snap split was almost exactly the same. Bradshaw is the more valuable fantasy commodity, even though Richardson had 21 carries Monday.
