Ahmad Bradshaw comes off the PUP list, still a risky fantasy pick

Ahmad Bradshaw is off the PUP list, but will he be healthy all year? - Al Bello

Ahmad Bradshaw came off the PUP list on Monday. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Colts activated running back Ahmad Bradshaw off the PUP list on Monday. Bradshaw had his fifth foot surgery of his career back in February 2013. He's dealt with foot issues in every year since 2009.

He's one of the most injury-prone backs in the league and coming off the PUP list isn't going to alleviate anyone's concerns. Bradshaw played in 14 games last season and was still able to rush for 1,015 yards and six scores with the Giants.

Fantasy impact: The Colts could have some success in moving the ball, so there could be a lot of rushing TDs for the takings for the 27-year-old tailback. He's projected to be ahead of he slow-footed Vick Ballard and the Colts will want to get some sort of running game to help keep Andrew Luck upright. Bradshaw has the upside to be a must-start player, but there is obviously tremendous risk. It's not a bad idea draft him as a third running back, then perhaps sell high after he gets it going a bit.
