Ahmad Bradshaw injury update: Ready to make fantasy debut in Colts backfield

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Ahmad Bradshaw is probable for Sunday's opener. We break down the fantasy implications.

Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) is listed as probable to face the Raiders on Sunday. He practiced all week and will play in his first action as a member of the team.

Bradshaw has dealt with foot injuries all too often in his career, struggling through them in every season since 2009. He's been effective, though, with a career 4.6 yards-per-carry average. The 27-year-old back is taking some reps with the second team, but the prevailing thought is that he will get most of the work with the starters.

Fantasy impact: Bradshaw slipped quite a bit considering the Colts are going to score some points this year. He is hurt quite a bit and Vick Ballard is right on his heels. Ballard is a little bit on the slower side and lacks big-play ability, so as long as Bradshaw can stay on the field, he'll serve as a nice flex play. He'll be a low-end RB2 this week as long as this game doesn't get out of hand too quickly.
