Baller Move:  Stash in Deep Leagues

Analysis:  With the Colts coming out of their bye in week 9, the running back situation is an interesting one that should be monitored.  Trent Richardson has been rather ineffective for Indianapolis, and hasn’t been running well over the past few weeks.  Brown on the other hand has been given more rushing attempts of late, perhaps because T-Rich isn’t playing well, and has been decent with his opportunities.  In PPR leagues, Brown has had 9.40 points or more in 3 out of the past 4 weeks.  And before their week 8 bye, the Colts coaches gave Brown 11 carries which was his highest total for the season.  That is the biggest reason why I will be monitoring the running back situation for the Colts this week.  If you are very thin at running back, or are looking for a deep league flyer, you can take a chance on Brown off the week 9 waiver wire.
