Ahmad Bradshaw took advantage of the absence of Vick Ballard with 65 rushing yards and a touchdown along with 19 yards on three catches. Donald Brown was only given seven carries and ended with 30 yards.
Fantasy impact: Bradshaw showed flashes of his old self as he faced a tough Miami run defense. He averaged 4.3 yards per carry and caught all three passes thrown his way. Vick Ballard is out for the season, leaving the Colts backfield for Bradshaw to command for the time being. Donald Brown didn't seem to be much of a threat to Bradshaw's workload particularly in the passing game. Bradshaw will face a tough 49ers run defense in Week 3, but can still be considered a great flex option regardless. He has a shaky history of injuries, but he'll likely produce as long as he's on the field.
