RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

The diminutive Karim didn't make much of an impact for fantasy teams last season, posting an ugly 2.1 yards per carry in 63 attempts as a backup to Maurice Jones-Drew. The Colts don't have an overly impressive backfield, so it's possible Karim could work his way into a regular role after signing with Indy with an impressive training camp. Still, he may get most of his time on special teams if he stays on the roster.

2011

Karim was deep down the depth chart last season and it doesn't look to change at all for 2011. Playing behind Maurice Jones-Drew and Rashad Jennings, Karim will likely only see the field if one of them goes down, and even if that happens, it will still be in a back up role.

2010

Karim has impressed in offseason OTA's, and there's an outside chance he could battle Rashad Jennings for the team's backup tailback position. Should he earn that role, Karim could see a few carries per game, but more realistically, he'll contribute on special teams this year.
