Colts | Vick Ballard doing individual work

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 21:19:34 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') has resumed doing individual field work and he is shooting for Aug. 1 to return to football-related activities. He has yet to be medically cleared.

Fantasy Tip: Ballard is making his way back from an ugly knee injury. When he does return he’ll find a backfield which consists of Frank Gore, Boom Herron and Zurlon Tipton, among others. It will take Ballard a while to work his way into a meaningful role again, so fantasy owners can avoid drafting him for now.

Colts | Vick Ballard able to do some things

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 06:51:13 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') has been able to participate in some individual drills this offseason. Ballard has not received medical clearance at this point but believes he can return to the field by August 1.

Fantasy Tip: Ballard likely will compete for the No. 2 running back job if he is healthy during training camp. He has played only one game over the last two seasons, so he could take his time in his recovery. Ballard likely will not see a lot of playing time if he is healthy this season since the team added Frank Gore. Ballard probably should not be more than a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Colts | Vick Ballard making progress

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 08:53:37 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') is doing well in his rehab from a torn Achilles' tendon but there is no timetable for his return to the field, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Ballard is expected to compete with RB Dan Herron for the No. 2 running back job if he is healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Ballard missed the entire 2014 season because of the injury and may sit out some of the offseason workouts. Ballard and Herron likely will compete for the backup job during training camp and the preseason. Owners should consider the winner of the competition as a later-round draft choice.

Colts | Vick Ballard tears Achilles'

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 16:08:49 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during practice Friday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Ballard likely will miss the entire season because of the injury. Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw probably will get a majority of the reps at the position unless the team adds another back. Richardson should be considered a starting running back in all fantasy leagues, while Bradshaw probably would be a later-round pick that could be a No. 4 or 5 running back on a team.

Colts | Trent Richardson will need to produce

Sat, 12 Jul 2014 09:15:31 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson will need to produce right away in the running game if he wants to keep the starting job, because the team will not wait for him to turn things around if RB Ahmad Bradshaw or Vick Ballard are playing well.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson is getting the first chance to start, but he could find himself on the bench if he fails to produce. Richardson should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back in drafts this season. Owners could consider taking a late-round flier on Bradshaw or Ballard since there is a chance they could take over the starting job if Richardson falters, but it is not known which back would have more value at this point.
