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 practicing (Wed Jul 30, 02:35 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (undisclosed) is participating in practice Wednesday, July 30.

Our View: There have been some reassuring reports on Twitter of Richardson appearing to be fine when spotted at the practice on the sidelines.

Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw looking good (Tue Jul 29, 01:13 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw has been consistent so far in camp, and he's not showing any limitations with his neck, which caused him to miss the final 13 games of last season. 'He looks fantastic,' head coach Chuck Pagano said. 'He has found the groove to make it. We know how tough Ahmad is. We know how he's wired, so I'm not going to be pulling back on the reins. He's one of those guys we have to protect them from themselves. It will take care of itself. He's not one of those guys that will think about what he went through.'

Our View: Bradshaw is looking good while camp reports seem to indicate that Trent Richardson is struggling a bit. The Colts would like Richardson to be "the man" in 2014 with Bradshaw as a change-of-pace back. We'll see if Bradshaw can carve out a larger role this year than some people think.

Colts | Trent Richardson sits again (Sun Jul 27, 01:02 AM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Saturday, July 26, because of a soft tissue issue, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Our View: Richardson isn't doing anything to win the team's confidence here. They want him to be the top player at the running back position, but he's got to stay healthy and prove himself this year. Pagano said the team is being careful with Richardson and want him to be 100 percent before he returns to the field.

Colts | Vick Ballard tears Achilles' (Fri Jul 25, 07:08 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during practice Friday, July 25.

Our View: That's a brutal piece of news for Ballard who was coming back from an ACL injury. Ahmad Bradshaw moves up the chain a bit and will be the direct backup to Trent Richardson. T-Rich is an RB3 right now, and you can probably move Bradshaw up to RB5 with the possibility he could have a much larger role as camp and the season go on.

Colts | Trent Richardson being held out as a precaution (Fri Jul 25, 03:30 PM) - Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (knee) is being held out of practice Friday, July 25, as a precaution. It is believed the issue is knee related.

Our View: That's why we've been a bit concerned by this news. It's one thing if he's fighting off a hamstring or calf injury, another totally if he's dealing with knee issues again. We still have him as an RB3, but will watch this closely an hope it's more about preserving him for later in the season. If it's more, this could be troubling for the Colts as Vick Ballard is also banged up and we're not far into camp. Ahmad Bradshaw in the middle rounds anyone?
