2014 Outlook: Deep-league Only

Last updated on Jun-26-2014 by Larry Goldstein

Ahmad Bradshaw has always been under-appreciated in drafts; not because of his talent, but his propensity for injuries. He regularly battled foot and ankle problems during his time with the Giants and was sidelined in Week 4 for the remainder of the 2013 season due to a neck injury. To be fair, Bradshaw was far more impressive in his three week stint with the Colts than Richardson was all year, but the Colts gave up a lot to get Richardson, so it's their preference to see that trade through. While Bradshaw is expected to be cleared to play before the season starts (and is likely the first man up should Richardson stumble), it is difficult to assume he can get through a season injury-free at this point in his career. If you were burned by Richardson last year and want to corner the market on Colts running backs not named Richardson, you can grab Bradshaw very late in your draft. With Bradshaw, you get a fiery competitor who has a knack for finding the end zone.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
6.10 FFToolbox - Jamie Blackburn - This seemed like an absolute steal here. Assuming his chronic foot injuries are behind him, this is about as good as you can do in the 6th round for a PPR RB3. I really like the flex potential here. Between CJ2K, Sproles, and Bradshaw, my RBs should catch a ton of passes. Not buying the Vick Ballard stuff... I think Indy wants Bradshaw to be the man, but Ballard is serviceable enough to keep Bradshaw from getting overworked.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
7.10 Fantasy Football QB - I'll admit Bradshaw wasn't who I was targeting here. I still want to see him on the field before I commit to drafting him, but I could not pass on him when he fell to the 7.10. I created a RB depth need with my earlier draft picks, so I have to take a few calculated chances as the draft goes on.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
6.01 Bruno Boys - I was surprised that Bradshaw remained on the board into the 6th round of an Experts league. The hard running back isn?t known for staying healthy but he is known for solid pass blocking and explosive running ability, both of which are skills the Colts desperately need. Bradshaw will come in as the full time starter because of his blocking ability and will have every chance to succeed against light run defenses thanks to the threat posed by Andrew Luck?s arm. Over the last 3 years Bradshaw has averaged the 13th most PPR PPG of any back in the league. Bradshaw won?t see as much work as he did in New York but he?ll get plenty more looks in the passing game making him a PPR commodity. If he?s stay healthy and keeps Ballard in check, it wouldn?t be too shocking to see him finish the year as a high end RB2. That?s not bad for a 6th round RB4!
