Donald Brown (RB, IND) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Baller Move:  Stash in Deep Leagues

Analysis:  Ever since the Colts traded for Trent Richardson, everyone has been waiting for him to play to his potential and break out in a high-scoring offense.  Needless to say, that hasn’t happened yet.  Richardson has been decent, but still hasn’t mastered the Indianapolis playbook– and he can’t seem to find any holes when he’s running.  He hasn’t been targeted often in the passing game, and isn’t really producing much on the ground.  Donald Brown has been used as a change-of-pace running back, and this past week had his biggest workload with 11 carries and three catches.  The numbers aren’t elite by any means, but if Brown continues to get carries, he could produce for fantasy owners.  Richardson owners should also be picking up Brown as a handcuff.
