KFFL: Addai Should Score Between 8 and 10 TD’s in 2010, a premiere fantasy site, says that Colts back Joseph Addai should cross the goal-line 11 to 13 times in 2010, but increased carries for Donald Brown could be a major concern:

Pros: Addai is entering the final year of his contract, so motivation for a banner year isn’t hard to find. Even though a committee approach will be deployed, he remains the team’s first option and can contribute both on the ground and through the air, where he is coming off a career-high 51 receptions. A better receiver than Donald Brown, Addai should get first crack at most third-down opportunities. He has a nose for the end zone, scoring 15 rushing touchdowns in the past two years to go a long with five receiving scores.

Cons: Addai hasn’t hit 1,000 yards rushing or 4.0 per-carry average in either of the past two seasons. The Colts may want to find out what Brown is capable of, so increased carries could hurt Addai’s touches. The Colts, who averaged a league-worst 80.9 rushing yards per game last season, don’t run a lot – they were 31st in rushing attempts per game (22.9) last year – so there aren’t a lot of touches to go around.

Fantasy tip: On average, Addai’s name is being called during the early fifth round in fantasy football drafts. Provided Brown doesn’t chip into his production too much, Addai remains an uninspiring, yet reliable, No. 2 fantasy back. Addai doesn’t pile up a lot of rushing yardage, but his combined touches make him ideal in point-per-reception scoring. In 12 of 16 games last year, he had at least 80 combined yards and nine games of at least three receptions. Handcuff Brown to him whenever possible.
