Ahmad Bradshaw listed a 'probable', is a solid No. 2 option for fantasy

Indianapolis Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw practiced in full on Friday and is officially listed as "probable" on the injury report, as noted by Rotoworld. Bradshaw has been dealing with the foot injury off and on for some time, but seems like a good bet to play.

The Colts are hoping Bradshaw can take over and be their feature back throughout the course of a season. He did have 1,015 yards and six touchdowns with the New York Giants a season ago, but has missed time in both of his last two seasons with injuries.

Bradshaw playing wouldn't be surprising at this point. He has missed a lot of practice time, but he should be well-acclimated with the offense, especially given that it's generally easier for running backs to pick up an offense on the fly than it is for other positions.

Fantasy Impact: Bradshaw isn't a No. 1 option by any means, but he should be a solid fantasy No. 2. Whether he is in Week 1 is up for debate, as he might give up some carries to Vick Ballard or Donald Brown, but he does have a favorable matchup: the Oakland Raiders. Oakland is a mess right now, and Bradshaw could certainly have a big game. He's a judgment call at this point, but for lack of a better option, he could be smart as a No. 2 this week.
