Donald Brown (knee) was a full participant on Wednesday: Fantasy Implications

Jared Wickerham

Indianapolis Colts running back Donald Brown practiced in full on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts running back Donald Brown was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, per Colts.com. The Colts tailback has not been 100-percent for much of 2012, undergoing a midseason knee procedure.

It might take Brown a full offseason to get back to normal. But in the meantime, he should be active in Week 13 when the Colts take on the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Analysis: Brown looked promising in the beginning of the season but the midseason knee scope was a serious setback -- career and fantasy wise. He will continue to share reps with running back Vick Ballard, who looks to be the better fantasy option of the two right now.

Brown's fantasy value has rapidly deteriorated. As far as running backs go on the Colts offense, Ballard would be the better flex option.
