Ahmad Bradshaw practicing in full, is safe fantasy play vs. Raiders

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Ahmad Bradshaw got his second straight day of practice in and should be ready to go for Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw was a full participant in practice on Thursday. This is second straight full day of practice and he remains on track to play the Oakland Raiders.

Bradshaw had multiple foot surgeries in the offseason and the Colts limited him in training camp to keep him rested for the regular season. He didn't play a single snap in the preseason. Bradshaw played through various injuries with the New York Giants last year, recording 1,015 yards and four touchdowns in six games.

Fantasy impact: Despite appearing in 14 games, Bradshaw missed multiple practices with injury, so it's a great sign to see him getting in full practices this week. His 2013 ceiling isn't much higher than RB2 territory, but he has a juicy fantasy matchup against the Raiders this week. Start him with confidence. For that matter, start all Colts skill position players against the Raiders this week, including the team defense.
