2018 Fantasy Outlook
Despite the departure of Frank Gore, Ferguson finds himself buried on the Colts' depth chart entering the 2018 season. Part of this is due to the fact that Indianapolis chose two running backs in this year's draft, but also because Ferguson hasn't been very effective with his touches through two professional seasons, especially as a runner, where he's averaged only 1.6 YPC on his 16 total attempts. If he's to beat the odds yet again and secure a spot on the team's 53-man roster out of training camp, it will be from his proficiency as a return man on kickoffs, not for his potential contributions on offense.

ANALYSIS
Within the last week alone, Ferguson has made pit stops in Cleveland and New England before arriving in Houston. At 25 years old, Ferguson presents a youthful option at running back, but it's more likely he'll be used on special teams should he stick around.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Ferguson, an undrafted free agent from Illinois, beat the odds last season to earn a spot on the Colts 53-man roster. He wasn't a consistent member of the offense, rushing for 20 yards on 15 attempts. However, he did prove to be a valuable pass-catcher out of the backfield, recording 20 receptions for 136 yards. Now heading into his second season, he'll look to take on a larger offensive role behind Frank Gore and Robert Turbin, though he will have to compete with Marlon Mack and Christine Michael to secure a roster spot.
Ferguson, an undrafted rookie, signed on with the Colts in the offseason with the hopes of battling for carries behind veteran Frank Gore, who may see a decline in action given his age. Nonetheless, Ferguson will have to compete with a crowded backfield made up of reserves such as Robert Turbin, Trey Williams, and Jordan Todman. At 23, Ferguson is a younger option in the Colts' rushing attack that could be valuable if given opportunities.
