Indy looking to trade for a RB (1 Viewer)

Kub

According to a tweet by Will Carroll, Irsay suggests a RB trade is in the works.

Any thoughts on who they may be targeting?

 
Not sure Indy would be any better for Ingram. He needs a much worse quarterback to allow the team to lean on him.

 
Who has a surplus of talent at RB?

New Orleans

New England

Seattle

Ingram, Bolden, and Turbin could be possibilities. I don't think Bolden is fully healthy though.

Less likely, but still possible are Bernard Pierce, Toby Gerhart, Bryce Brown, Ryan Williams, and Mikel Leshoure.

I guess the important thing to read from a fantasy perspective is that the Colts aren't sold on Bradshaw to shoulder the load. If you have him, it is probably be a good time to sell high.

I would guess Ryan Williams with Arians's link to Indy (and that he was inactive Week 1)

Given he's not a ST guy, gonna be hard for Williams to latch on somewhere. I don't think the present day Williams is an upgrade over the Donald. I actually think he's a downgrade.

Ryan Williams, Mark Ingram, and DeAngelo Williams would all be the best candidates. Carolina could roll out some other backs for now and better their future. Ingram might not be worth much, NO makes him look like a complete bust. Ryan Williams is still mostly unknown, maybe send him to Indy for a fresh start

 
Watchem go deal for someone like Daniel Thomas or Johnathan Dwyer rather than give Brown a real shot.

Carolina should have beat Seattle last week, they aren't going to give up on the season and roll with Tolbert and other complete scrubs at RB

Seattle is the most RB stacked. You've got three potential starting RB quality guys. Turbin would make a lot of sense.

As a Super Bowl contender in a run first offense, makes little sense to deal RB depth on the active roster. Michael unproven in pass pro.

Michael / Turbin cheap contracts going to be useful in the next couple years so money can be allocated elsewhere.

Find it doubtful any sort of contender is going to deal cheap RB depth that is on their active gameday roster.

Spencer Ware would be a great compliment to Bradshaw if they are actually targeting Seattle as a trade partner.

I don't think Will Carroll is breaking anything new but is referencing the tweet below from Irsay which he left yesterday. My guess is the biggest priority they have of any RB they bring in will be someone who can pass protect so not sure guys like Ingram or Ryan Williams fit the bill. The Seahawks are not going to give Turbin away.My guess is they do acquire a RB but a cheap one. Can't possibly predict who I'll play the guessing .game and go with a third down type who can handle some early down work and comes cheap, a guy like a Ronnie Brown.

Jim Irsay ‏@JimIrsay 13 Sep

We're all hurting for Vick BaL..Bradshaw,Brown and others must step up...Grig's gonna work hard to wheel n deal B4 trade deadline,let's roll

 
I still love Gerhart and since he's been supposedly trade bait so many times since he got drafted, I wish it'd be him here.

 
Cards aren't dealing Taylor with 3-4 years left on a cheap deal.

It's Ryan Williams getting dealt (healthy scratch Week 1), if anyone in the Cards backfield dealt.

 
they would be better off just signing McGahee than most of the guys listed in this thread
This.
McGahee hasn't received any favorable news when he tries out, not even the obligatory "he looked good but we went in another direction" type comments.
And he hasn't received any 'he looks terrible' comments either.

Given deal is non-guaranteed and paid on a per game basis, he probably isn't looking to be a place holder for Andre Brown,etc.. for a few games only to be dumped mid-season.

It's a long season. More RB's are going to get hurt. He'll get more calls. And gives him more time to further recover from injury.

 
Why would they want to trade for another injury prone RB? i.e. Bolden, Ryan Williams
Because they're probably look for a cheap extra body. (If they even end up getting one)

I don't imagine they're looking for a long term RB right now that they'll have to pay a lot in compensation for. I'll guarantee you Stephan Taylor isn't heading to the Colts.

Ryan Williams will cost a 7th round pick. And who knows if he's even worth that at this point.

 
MJD sounds interesting with Irsay but I am thinking Denver could easily part with one of the three....

I see no way the Colts go for an injury-prone guy. They have trade history with the Ravens but they seem awful high on Pierce.

They have history with Arians so maybe a Cardina? Williams is on the outs there, but again, he's an injury risk.

Polk from the Eagles looked decent in the preseason.

No way the Texans trade within the division.

Gerhart is a possibility, but I don't know the Vikings RB depth chart.

I don't see the Patriots trading within the conference and if they were willing to, I don't think I'd trust them.

The team that seems most likely to me is the 49ers. Hunter or James would be a good fit and maybe the Colts send DHB?! He's familiar with the area, the Colts have WR depth with Whalen and Brazill who will be off iof suspension week #5.

It's all speculation.

 
No way the niners trade Hunter with Gore hitting the 30 mark and being in championship mode. Doubt Colts trade for a smallish back in James who can't block when they just promoted one from PS.

 
Irsay did mention before deadline. So maybe a vet non contender? Mjd , f jax, dwill, mendy, dmc?
