Indianapolis Colts running back, Ahmad Bradshaw, has opted to undergo surgery on his neck ending his 2013 season. What started as a promising beginning in Indy, is ending sooner than anyone would have guessed. He will end the year with 186 yards, while averaging 4.5 YPC, and two touchdowns over three games.
The Colts new early that while Ahmad played well, that he was not the running back of the future. The Colts went out and attained the services of second-year back Trent Richardson from the Cleveland Browns. Trent hasn’t had the easiest start thus far but most believe that the Colts made a brilliant move for the future of the franchise.
From a fantasy perspective, Richardson owners need not worry about Bradshaw’s return and can safely put him in for the remainder of the season. And also for teams in deep leagues, this will mean that backup and change-of-pace running back, Donald Brown, could be useful in spot starts. Brown had been relatively written off the past couple of seasons but is doing really well this year with his limited amount of touches.
