Bradshaw will play, but could be limited. The Raiders are soft on the run. There is some room for Ballard to work this week.
 
  
Taylor Smith
NFL Soup
Ballard is pretty average, but seems like the most likely Colts back to pick up the scraps left behind by Ahmad Bradshaw.
 
  
Staff Rankings
FFLockerRoom
Ahmad is listed as questionable for now and we think Ballard will still get a significant amount of playing time.

Vick 'The Brick' Ballard will be the change-of-pace RB to Bradshaw, and that is best case scenario. Luckily for Ballard, Bradshaw is not the type of RB who makes it through a season healthy. Ever. And coming into 2013 with Bradshaw at less than 100%, you already know Ballard will get his Fantasy RB#2 chances.
Reece had some MONSTER High RB#2 Numbers in 2012. Now we are back in reality, and Darren McFadden is in a contract year. Look for Reece to have his occasional big moments, with little consistency.
