Summary

Richard entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2016 and made an immediate splash in training camp. He quickly joined the Raiders running back rotation his rookie year, earning 112 touches in his rookie season. He had a similar workload in his second season before taking a big step forward in 2018 under new coach Jon Gruden. The rushing numbers (55 carries for 259 yards) weren't impressive but Richard emerged as a major threat in the passing game with 68 receptions for 607 yards. He should retain a similar role in 2018 as the change-of-pace option behind rookie Josh Jacobs. Richard is one of the more talented third-down specialist backs in the league and should carve out a long career as a backup. In PPR leagues, Richard is a solid bye-week option. His upside is limited, however. Even with a Jacobs injury, Richard would probably still be the number two in a support role behind Doug Martin. (May 23)
