Indianapolis Colts RB Josh Ferguson is tied for seventh in the NFL among running backs with 21 targets on the season. He has turned those 21 targets into 17 catches for 117 yards.
Huddle Up: Ferguson is quietly flying under the radar as the Colts have been forced to pass early and often in 2016. The rookie running back has turned into the Colts' best pass-catching option out of the backfield. And while he won't put up gaudy numbers behind Frank Gore, Ferguson deserves a pickup in deep PPR leagues.

Indianapolis Colts RB Josh Ferguson is averaging 0.69 yards per carry on 13 rushes this preseason, and he has struggled in pass protection.
Huddle Up: Ferguson has been a popular sleeper candidate, but fantasy owners may want to pump the brakes. He is still worth selecting in keeper formats, but Robert Turbin may be the smarter handcuff to Frank Gore in 2016.

Indianapolis Colts RB Josh Ferguson ran with the first-team offense in the Colts' first preseason game and understands how valuable the experience is to improving his game. An undrafted free-agent rookie, Ferguson has gained praise around the Indianapolis organization this summer, and the Colts are intrigued by his ability as a complementary receiving back.
Huddle Up: Ferguson has a fair chance to contribute meaningful fantasy work in 2016, regardless of what happens to a 33-year-old Frank Gore. PPR owners should nab Ferguson in the waning rounds or as a handcuff to Gore.

Indianapolis Colts RB Josh Ferguson has impressed with his quickness in workouts, and head coach Chuck Pagano called him a 'mismatch' in space and 'not just a third-down back.'
Huddle Up: Ferguson is a UDFA fantasy owners need to keep an eye on. Frank Gore is still the starter but eventually the Dorian Gray painting will come down and Gore's run as a feature back will come to a close. If that happens via injury this year, or perhaps via retirement in the offseason, Ferguson is the best option on the Colts' depth chart to take his place.
