ESPN reported on NFL Countdown that the Colts had made a switch and demoted Trent Richardson, and that report rang true with Richardson only receiving five carries for 19 yards. The former Cleveland Brown was also a no-show in the passing game, receiving no targets. Brown was not exactly a stud in that department, but he turned three targets into two catches for 10 yards.
The Colts will take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14. Cincy was stopping a lot of running backs, but the loss of Geno Atkins has set them back. Atkins is their best play and he eats double teams for lunch, which allowed linebackers like Vontaze Burfict to get some clear looks in the hole against running backs. The've been noticeable worse in that department.
Fantasy impact: There is really no reason for the Colts to change their tune and switch the roles of Richardson and Brown, so Brown serves as low-end RB2 this week in PPR and a flex in standard leagues.
