Delone Carter and Mewelde Moore should take the field for the Colts on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Indianapolis Colts running back corps look like it will be at full strength this weekend, as Delone Carter and Mewelde Moore are expected to play against the Chicago Bears in their regular season opener. Donald Brown remains the clear No. 1 runner for the Colts, but these two could cut into his workload.

Fantasy Impact: Carter and Moore were sidelined for several weeks with rib injuries this preseason, but they're looking ready for action this week at practice. Several issues are at play here, though, that limit these two backs from making any fantasy impact. First of all, Brown and rookie Vick Ballard sit atop the Colts depth chart. Second, the Bears defense ranked fifth in the league last year in run defense, and when they match up against Indy's poor offensive line, it might not be a pretty sight to watch. Brown's owners should keep an eye on the workload this week.
