Donald Brown's Updated 2013 Fantasy Outlook After Week 7
Indianapolis Colts running back Donald Brown has turned into a non-factor in fantasy football ever since the arrival of Trent Richardson, but he began to show signs of life on Sunday Night Football.
Brown nearly split carries with Richardson, but didn't emerge as effective as he carried the ball 11 times for 23 yards. Although, he found a way to make some impact on the passing game, catching three balls for 42 yards.
His highlight on the night was a 28-yard catch on a short pass to the left side that Brown was able to break away from the defense on, helping set up a second-quarter touchdown for the Colts.
This performance comes off the heels of a three-carry, 15-yard performance last week against San Diego and a rather productive outing in Week 5 vs. Seattle—37 yards and a touchdown.
Brown is getting his typical 5-8 carries per game, but that give you very little as a potential fantasy starter, so it's tough to make an argument that he's even worth a bench spot.
But if he keeps emerging as a passing threat in Andrew Luck's offense, you can bet that the talented second-year QB will find a way to get him the ball in space and use his vision and speed. Still, it's hard to justify him earning a roster spot in this performance as he's only owned in 6.1 percent of ESPN leagues.
