Summary

Richardson was an unlikely winner in the free agent sweepstakes thanks to Washington's 5-year, $40 million commitment to the former Seahawk speedster. With $20 million in guarantees, head coach Jay Gruden expects Richardson to step right into a prominent role as the team's primary outside receiver and deep threat. Asking Richardson to produce like a true #1 receiver is a tall order considering he was a complete non-factor for three seasons in Seattle before last year's mini-breakout. In 2017, Richardson finally got consistent playing time, starting 13 games, and caught 44 passes for 703 yards and six touchdowns. In Washington, Richardson will be asked to do even more, mainly since Josh Doctson hasn't lived up to his potential. Changing teams, coasts, coaching staffs, quarterbacks, schemes, and roles makes Richardson a risky bet in drafts, but his ADP accounts for the risk. (August 4)
