Indianapolis Colts running back Donald Brown is active and listed as the starter for Thursday night's game against the Jaguars. Brown has been dealing with a knee injury and hasn't carried the ball since Week 7 against the Titans when he finished with 80 yards on 14 rushes.
How much he will actually play has yet to be determined.
Fantasy Take: Brown has been decent in limited action this season and is facing a Jacksonville defense ranked 27th against the run and 31st in rushing touchdowns allowed. That makes him a great start when healthy, but it's possible he could be limited in carries and that Vick Ballard will get his fair share.
It's a risky play, but could pay big dividends. Especially if the Colts build an early lead.
