Donald Brown rushed for 80 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries against the Tennessee Titans in Week 11. He also caught one pass for 14 yards on Thursday night. Trent Richardson finished with 22 yards rushing on eight carries.
Richardson made the bigger impact in the passing game, catching five passes for 31 yards. Brown, though, was the back the Colts heavily relied on in the second half, especially during a final clock-killing drive with just minutes left in the fourth quarter.
Fantasy impact: So much for all the hype surrounding the Richardson trade. He'll likely be a great candidate for a bounce-back year in 2014, but for now, Brown appears to be the more valuable back. Richardson hasn't done anything since showing up in Indianapolis.
The Colts should continue to split time between the two backs, but Brown controlled most of the work down the stretch in the second half. He's worth a flex play at this point.
