Donald Brown rushed for 45 yards on 16 carries during Sunday's game between the Colts and Vikings. We break down the fantasy implications.

Donald Brown had 45 yards on 16 carries during Sunday's game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Minnesota Vikings. He did not find the end zone and was not targeted once in the passing game. The running game took a backseat to an effective passing game led by rookie quarterback Andrew Luck.

Fantasy Impact: Brown never really got going Sunday, averaging just 2.8 yards per carry. He has been a useful receiving option out of the backfield in the past, so it's somewhat surprising he was unable to make an impact through the air. At this point, you should know exactly what you're getting in Brown: Unspectacular production out of the Flex spot, with the hope of a touchdown to go along with a decent number of touches.
