Summary

Trent Richardson scored double-digit touchdowns in his rookie season with the Browns in 2012. He also totaled 51 receptions and nearly rushed for 1,000 yards, earning him a 9th place ranking among fantasy running backs. Then he was traded to Indianapolis in early 2013 where he regressed to the point of not being a weekly start in fantasy leagues. He finished 34th. What should we expect in his second year with the Colts? This time around he'll be a full participant in the Colts off season activities including training camp. He'll be well-versed in the offense and will have no excuses if he fails to consistently perform. His 3.3 career yards per carry average is a shockingly low, which may be a clue looking ahead to the future. One of Richardson's strengths is his receiving ability. In 2012, the Colts had a league low 34 receptions to running backs. That jumped up to 84 in 2013. Now that Donald Brown is out of the picture, Richardson should be the main beneficiary of those remaining targets. There are signs that he will rebound this year, which could result in a positive fantasy season. (May 18)

Latest News

Colts | Trent Richardson off to slow start (Wed Aug 20, 10:31 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson is off to a slow start in training camp and the preseason, posting just 34 yards in 14 attempts. At 2.4 yards per carry, that's even less than the 2.9 yards per carry he averaged in his disappointing 2014. 'Trent, he needs to answer the bell and do his job to the best of his ability,' general manager Ryan Grigson said Wednesday, Aug. 20.

Our View: At this point, it's really hard to expect Richardson to look any better than he did last year. It's hard to like him even at a discount.

Colts | Edgerrin James mentoring Trent Richardson (Sat Aug 9, 11:25 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson had retired RB Edgerrin James watching him in practice Saturday, Aug. 9. 'It was a blessing, man,' Richardson said. 'Just to watch practice, he said he's going to do a lot more with me, going to be hands-on.'

Our View: Richardson needs all the help he can get. We'll see if James can guide Richardson in a positive direction. Richardson has been a disappointment so far with the Colts. He's got to play with more confidence and decisiveness as a runner.
