The Colts backfield is causing a state of confusion among fantasy owners right now. Joseph Addai (shoulder) is unlikely to face the Texans, and Donald Brown (hamstring) is not guaranteed to be active either.
“I do not anticipate Joseph practicing at all (today),” Colts coach Jim Caldwell told the Indianapolis Star, “and Donald is questionable. If he does, it will be limited work.”
That leaves Mike Hart as the team’s only healthy running back. And based on Caldwell’s praise of the Michigan product, he could be a nice sleeper in Week 8.
“If you would have asked me to tell you exactly what I thought about Mike Hart a couple weeks ago, I would have been totally off base and you would have said, ‘You know what, that guy misled us,’” Caldwell said. “The fact of the matter is, he made such an unbelievable turnaround.”
Fantasy owners need to keep tabs on Brown’s status throughout the weekend. But right now, it looks like Hart is the Colts runner to target off the waiver wire.
