Joseph AddaiUNS -RBreleased by Patriots
The Patriots have released RB Joseph Addai. He made it less than 3 months before getting axed. The 29-year-old isn't much more than a 3rd-down back at this point. He'll likely get a look elsewhere but is well off the fantasy radar. The move means RB Danny Woodhead will retain passing-down work in New England. RBs Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen will vie for the lead role.
Joseph AddaiUNS -RBsigns with New England
According to Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star, the Colts have signed RB Joseph Addai. Chappell actually learned of the news from Peyton Manning, who’s in Indy for a charity event. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network has since confirmed the signing. Addai joins the league’s most crowded backfield, one that consists of Stevan Ridley, Danny Woodhead, and Shane Vereen. Posting just one season with a YPC north of four over the last four seasons, the 29-year-old will have to impress this summer to have a shot at gaining fantasy value. We’d recommend targeting a higher upside guy late in your draft.
Joseph AddaiUNS -RBreleased by Colts
The Colts have released RB Joseph Addai. The former 1st-round pick never lived up to that lofty billing. After topping 1,000 yards rushing in each of his first 2 seasons, he's averaged just 575 over the past 4. Addai's career yards-per-carry sits at an unimpressive 4.1, and he's missed 18 games with injuries. Turning 29 in May, he won't be viewed as anything more than a change-of-pace back on the open market. Addai is still a capable pass-catcher and pass-blocker. RB Donald Brown projects as Indy's Week 1 starter, with RB Delone Carter looking like the short-yardage option.
Joseph AddaiUNS -RBactive
Colts RB Joseph Addai (hamstring) is active for today's game against the Patriots. He didn't practice at all on Friday, so we wouldn't be surprised if he played a very minimal role. RB Donald Brown is the best fantasy option in the Colts backfield.
Joseph AddaiUNS -RBquestionable for Week 13
Colts RB Joseph Addai was added to the team's injury report on Friday as questionable with a hamstring injury. He didn't practice at all on Friday, which doesn't bode well for his Week 13 availability. It's just another reason to avoid Addai in fantasy leagues. Donald Brown will serve as Indy's lead back regardless of whether or not Addai is active against the Patriots Sunday.
Joseph AddaiUNS -RBactive, starting
Colts RB Joseph Addai (hamstring) is active and in the starting lineup for today's game against the Panthers. He put in a full week of practice but also admitted on Thursday that the hammy still wasn't at 100%. The matchup is ideal, but Addai remains a risky fantasy option. His workload hinges on how that hamstring holds up. RBs Donald Brown and Delone Carter will mix in, but it's tough to trust either guy now.
Joseph AddaiUNS -RBquestionable for Week 12
Colts RB Joseph Addai (hamstring) put in another full practice on Friday but is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Panthers. It seems like he has a good chance of playing, but Addai admitted on Thursday that the hammy is still sore. If he's active on Sunday, you're better off avoiding this backfield. If not, Donald Brown would make a sneaky RB2 option in a great matchup.
Joseph AddaiUNS -RBstill iffy for Week 12
Despite putting in full practices on Wednesday and Thursday, Colts RB Joseph Addai (hamstring) admits that he's still iffy for this weekend's game against the Panthers. "It just feels a little sore," Addai said. "So we're going to wait and see how I feel [Friday] and then decide what we're going to do on Sunday." We'll have another update later today, but Addai will be a risky fantasy option if he's active this weekend.
Joseph AddaiUNS -RBpractices Wednesday
Colts RB Joseph Addai (hamstring) was able to practice on Wednesday. The last time he practiced on Wednesday was back in Week 9. He was active for that game but didn't play a single snap. We'll continue to update his status throughout the week, but Addai figures to be too risky to use in fantasy lineups. His return would make RB Donald Brown a shakier play, though, despite an ultra-favorable matchup against the Panthers.
Joseph AddaiUNS -RB"a possibility" for Week 12
Colts HC Jim Caldwell said it's "a possibility" that RB Joseph Addai (hamstring) will be back for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Addai has just 2 carries over Indy's past 5 games. He'll need to prove he's healthy before we can consider him a fantasy option.
Joseph AddaiUNS -RBinactive
Colts RB Joseph Addai (knee, hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. RB Donald Brown will start and likely lead the backfield in touches. RB Delone Carter will mix in as a change-of-pace.
Joseph AddaiUNS -RBnot expected to play Week 10
Colts RB Joseph Addai (knee) was unable to practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. If he's active, it'll be in an emergency role. Addai hasn't touched the ball the past 2 weeks. RBs Donald Brown and Delone Carter will continue to share backfield duties.
