Dan Herron keys Colts rushing game with 60 yards vs. Texans


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Colts running back Dan Herron led his team with 60 rushing yards on 11 carries while adding two receptions and 12 yards through the air in his team's 17-10 win over the Texans in Week 15.

Herron split the touches pretty evenly with Trent Richardson but was far more effective, managing 72 yards on 13 touches compared to 41 yards on 11 touches for the former first-round pick. Richardson averaged just 3.6 yards on the ground while racking up 32 yards on nine carries and added another nine yards on two receptions.

Herron figures to lead the RB committee again in Week 16 against the Cowboys.


Colts backfield duo just OK in defeat of Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The backfield pair of Trent Richardson and Dan Herron contributed little on the ground for the Colts on Sunday in Cleveland, though the latter did catch four passes for 45 yards.

Richardson returned to the field in which he played his home games as a rookie and managed 30 yards on seven carries. Herron added 26 yards on eight attempts.


Colts RB Richardson claims he'll explode against Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2014) Colts running back Trent Richardson is claiming he is about to break loose - and he's planning to start his explosion Sunday against his former Browns teammates.

"A lot of people are saying I'm a mistake," Richardson told the Akron Beacon Journal. "What I'm telling folks now is watch the next four weeks."

Richardson, who claims that he is recovering from a hamstring injury, remains the starter despite the Colts have received far more production from Dan Herron. The former is averaging 2.0 YPC in the last three games and is coming off an effort in which he managed just 12 yards on eight carries against Jacksonville.


Colts' coach Pagano not worried about Trent Richardson


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Colts running back Trent Richardson had just eight carries for 12 yards on Sunday against the Redskins, but coach Chuck Pagano said he's not worried about him.

"Some days it's going to go like that," Pagano said. "[He] comes in and works his butt off. [He's] got to keep chopping wood. If you put the axe down, that tree will never come down."

Richardson is averaging 3.3 yards per carry with three touchdowns in 12 games this season. 


Dan Herron outshines Trent Richardson again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2014) Playing their second game without Ahmad Bradshaw, who is out for the season with a fractured fibula, the Colts once again gave Dan Herron an extended looking at running back Week 13 against Washington, and he once again outperformed Trent Richardson. And this time, it wasn't even close.

While Richardson got one more carry than Herron in Week 12, the two were dead even with eight in Week 13, only Herron gained 88 yards, including 49 on a touchdown run in the second quarter, while Richardson had just 12. Herron was again a bigger factor in the passing game as well, though he had just two catches for 8 yards this time.

It's now even more apparent Herron has assumed Bradshaw's role and workload on offense, and while Bradshaw typically outperformed Richardson in that capacity, Herron looks like he has the ability to do so as well. The Colts remain a pass-first team, but Herron is worth using as at least a flex option with a favorable matchup Week 14 at Cleveland.


Report: Herron likely to start ahead of Richardson again Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Colts running back Dan Herron will likely to continue starting over Trent Richardson when the team plays Washington on Sunday.

It had been reported that Herron started in Week 13 because Richardson was dealing with the flu, but it was in reality because he outperformed him in practice, according to ESPN. He then produced more on the field against Jacksonville, averaging 5.4 YPC on 12 attempts and adding five receptions while Richardson managed 42 yards and a touchdown in 13 tries.


Dan Herron starts, but Trent Richardson scores


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) With Ahmad Bradshaw (leg) out for the season, the Colts started unheralded running back Dan Herron against the Jaguars. He acquitted himself well, rushing 12 times for 65 yards (5.4 ypc) and catching all five of his targets for 31 yards. He did lose a fumble.

Trent Richardson saw a similar workload on the ground, rushing 13 times for 42 yards (3.2 ypc). It was Richardson who got the goal-line carry in the third quarter, and he punched in a 1-yard touchdown, his third score this season. Richardson was targeted once without a catch.

They figure to split the workload again Week 13 against the Redskins.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Report: Colts 'appear interested' in RB Ben Tate


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) Down to two healthy running backs, the Colts have "begun researching running back Ben Tate -- including his character and potential fit in Indy's scheme -- and appear interested in possibly claiming him off waivers from the Browns," reports ESPN.com.

Cleveland waived Tate on Tuesday as the Browns opted to move forward with rookies Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West. Tate averaged 3.1 yards per carry but scored four touchowns in eight games.

Trent Richardson rushes seven times for zero yards in Week 11


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Colts running back Trent Richardson gained a total of zero yards on seven carries in his team's 42-20 loss to the Patriots in Week 11.

Both Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw received seven carries in the game but could only manage a combined four yards as the Patriots completely shut down the Colts rushing attack. Richardson, whose longest run went for two yards, also delivered a 21-yard catch on his only target.

Richardson had put together a pair of solid performances in his previous two games, rushing for 110 yards on 21 carries over that two-game stretch while adding 50 yards on six receptions. With Ahmad Bradshaw unable to finish Sunday's game due to injury and a matchup against the Jaguars in Week 12 on tap, the former first-round pick could have a chance at redemption next Sunday.


Ahmad Bradshaw, Trent Richardson both effective on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

As expected, Bradshaw got more opportunities a receiver. He caught three of five targets for 29 yards against his former team. Richardson secured both his targets for 9 yards.

Neither scored a touchdown despite Indy putting up 40 points. Bradshaw and Richardson are on a bye Week 10.

Time share not hurting either of Colts' backs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) As unlikely as it seems, the Colts have found a way to keep both Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw productive, as both topped double figures in Fantasy scoring yet again in Week 7 against the Bengals.

Both players have managed to reach double figures in Fantasy scoring in three of the last four games, and the duo has combined for nine touchdowns; seven have come from Bradshaw. The Colts are unafraid to run the ball or throw it to either player, and they have combined for 214 touches in seven games.

Most of the time, the running back by committee is harmful for Fantasy purposes, but both players in Indianapolis have been able to carve out their roles while remaining productive. Bradshaw is the better player here, but both should remain solid options heading into Week 8 against the Steelers.
