Donald Brown practices Wednesday, set for fantasy start Sunday

The Colts running back Donald Brown practiced in full on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts running back Donald Brown (stinger) did not practice with the team on Wednesday, according to Phillip Wilson of the Indianapolis Star. Brown continues to share touches with teammate Trent Richardson.

Fantasy Impact: No matter who is carrying the ball for the Colts, it seems as a team they just can't get the running game going. Brown has run for a high of 54 yards in a game over the last four weeks and his touches over that stretch have been very limited.

Neither Brown nor Richardson can be trusted in the fantasy postseason right now, especially given the fact many leagues use Week 16 as the championship final.

All in all it appears Brown will be ready to play against the Kansas City Chiefs this week, but how much he gets the ball remains to be seen.

Fantasy owners should steer clear of the Colts' running game with the exception of those who participate in very deep leagues.
