Four Downs: How bad is that Colts run D?

Here's what I take away from what Houston Texans running back Arian Foster accomplished Sunday: Ahmad Bradshaw might run wild for 200 yards in Week 2!

Look, maybe Foster really is this good; he gutted the Colts for 231 yards and three touchdowns on 31 carries Sunday. But I think fantasy owners should also focus on the other part of this story, that the Indianapolis Colts again cannot stop the run. We've seen this occur in recent seasons, with or without standout safety Bob Sanders. The team could be without Sanders once more after he suffered an elbow injury Sunday. The Colts are vulnerable again, and fantasy owners should absolutely factor this into their thinking. In fact, I might rank Bradshaw as a top-10 running back this week.
