RB Trent Richardson - Cleveland Browns
|5-9, 228||Born: 7-10-1990||College: Alabama||Drafted: Round 1, pick 3|
Quick fantasy outlook: More impressive than a 950-yard, 11-touchdown season could be the toughness shown by Trent Richardson throughout 2012. All season, he dealt with various nagging injuries but played 15 games, only missing the finale after the team had shut down multiple players along with him. Richardson showed that he's more than just a runner by hauling in 51 passes, making him a true every-down back. New Head Coach Rob Chudzinski, the former Offensive Coordinator of the Carolina Panthers, has a great track record recently with rushing offenses (Carolina was ninth in rushing yards in 2012 and third in 2011). And new Offensive Coordinator Norv Turner has a long history of getting great production from his running backs. Look for Richardson to grow from his rookie season and post great numbers this season.
