Ahmad Bradshaw listed as doubtful, losing value as a fantasy asset

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Ahmad Bradshaw is listed as doubtful for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw is listed as doubtful to play against the Seahawks on Sunday. He is unlikely to practice for most of the week.

He was an early scratch in Week 4 with his neck injury, and it's hardly a surprise to see him sit out in Week 5. The former Giant has dealt with all sorts of injuries and had a foot injury in every season from 2009-13. The Colts surprisingly rank third in the NFL in rushing yards, so the majority of work will fall on Trent Richardson.

Fantasy impact: Bradshaw's injury history doesn't make him a strong bet to suit up at less than 100 percent. Richardson should be viewed as a must-start back even in a rough matchup against the Seahawks. Seattle could take away Reggie Wayne with Richard Sherman at corner, and their pass rush could mean Andrew Luck may have to check down. Bradshaw is barely worth owning at this point.
