Colts HC Chuck Pagano on RB Vick Ballard: “I think he’s ahead of the learning curve. He’s doing a great job in the run game and the pass game. The protection stuff is coming around on first down. He’s a dynamic runner; he’s got make-miss ability. He’s strong. He gets extra yards. I don’t think you ever see him go backwards. Even after first contact, he’s going to make people miss, and he’s going to have a lot of yards after contact. Just because of the style of runner, he can jump cut and he can make a lot of guys miss. We can get a hat on almost everybody, but every now and then, that guy’s got to make somebody miss and he’s got that ability. So I’m really pleased with his progress to this point.”

Fantasy Impact: 

If Donald Brown falters, don't be surprised if Ballard gets a good look. Unlike Brown, the current coaching regime drafted Ballard so he is “their guy.”
