Description: Numerous reports have the Oakland Raiders signing running back Trent Richardson.
Insight: Richardson has yet to prove he can be an high-quality NFL running back despite being drafted No. 3 overall in the 2012 draft. If he makes the team he would likely grab some of Latavius Murray's carries.
 
3/12/2015 5:20:00 PM
Description: The Colts have released running back Trent Richardson.
Insight: This was expected after the Frank Gore signing. Richardson will likely find work, but in a backup role.
 
1/18/2015 9:58:00 AM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson missed Saturday's walkthrough and didn't go with the team to New England.
Insight: Richardson has fallen down the third on the depth chart behind Zurlon Tipton and doesn't play on special teams so his absence won't effect any fantasy owners.
 
1/11/2015 3:15:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson is inactive for the Division Weekend game against Denver.
Insight: Richardson has fallen down the third on the depth chart behind Zurlon Tipton. That's a long fall for the third overall pick in 2012.
 
12/14/2014 7:04:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson should probably not be in fantasy starting lineups anymore.
Insight: Richardson has been given every opportunity to prove he can be "the guy" in Indianapolis, but now he is losing playing time to Daniel Herron. Richardson had 32 yards on nine carries while Herron gained 60 yards on 11 attempts. Sit Richardson if you haven't already.

Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson scored a touchdown during Week 12's win against Jacksonville.
Insight: He did so on 13 caries for 42 yards. Richardson does have RB2 potential, but we still are hesitant with him for now.
 
11/23/2014 12:06:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson illness won't keep him off the field in Week 12.
Insight: Indianapolis is going to need a better effort from Richardson with Ahmad Bradshaw likely sidelined for the rest of the regular season.
 
Cold11/17/2014 9:26:00 AM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson rushed seven times for zero yards against New England Sunday night.
Insight: Indianapolis is going to need a better effort from Richardson with Ahmad Bradshaw likely sidelined for the rest of the regular season and possibly the year.
 
11/4/2014 8:59:00 AM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson rushed the ball seven times for just 33 yards.
Insight: Indianapolis featured the passing game for the first three quarters and that doesn't suit Richardson's game.
 
10/26/2014 3:13:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson (hamstring) is surprisingly active Sunday against the Steelers.
Insight: He was unable to practice all week, and most reports indicated Richardson would sit out Week 8. However, he will take the field, but will most likely be on a snap count, making him an RB3 at best. Ahmad Bradshaw is still in line for a heavy workload.
 
10/24/2014 2:16:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson should be downgraded to doubtful after missing Friday's practice and making it a clean sweep for the week.
Insight: Playing part-time behind Richardson, Ahmad Bradhaw is averaging almost 60 ypg and a touchdown. With Richardson out, Bradshaw becomes a very good fantasy option.
 
10/20/2014 4:00:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson will have an MRI on the hamstring that forced him out of Sunday's game.
Insight: He's said it was just a tweak and nothing serious, but the results of the MRI will tell us more. Richardson led the Colts with 14 carries and 77 yards in Week 7. If he out for any length of time Ahmad Bradshaw becomes a very good fantasy option.
 
10/19/2014 5:32:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson led the Colts with 14 carries and 77 yards in Week 7, but also left the game with a hamstring injury and did not return.
Insight: Because the Colts were up 24-0, we don't know if he didn't return because its serious or they just didn't need him with the big lead.
 
10/19/2014 5:13:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson led the Colts with 14 carries and 77 yards in Week 7.
Insight: Richardson is still running with a purpose, and the Colts are rewarding him by keeping him their top back despite the production from Ahmad Bradshaw. Richardson still needs to consistently find the end zone though in order to be considering a true RB1.
 
10/10/2014 9:33:00 AM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson is running hard, but he still dances instead of picking a hole and running through it.
Insight: Richardson rushed for 41 yards and a score on 17 carries. Bradhsaw saw a total of 11 carries and 6 targets, so this continues to be a 50-50 split in the workload.
 
9/28/2014 5:16:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson finds end zone in Week 4.
Insight: He still is not producing on the ground (20 carries, 47 yards), but did get his first score of the season. Ahmad Brashaw was not much better today (nine carries, 32 yards). Neither guy holds great upside in fantasy.
 
9/21/2014 6:11:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson is actually becoming a viable fantasy option. I'm seeing a lot better running than anything since his rookie season.
Insight: He still doesn't have the numbers, 80 yards from scrimmage Sunday, but I think he could be a "buy-low" candidate.
 
9/16/2014 9:22:00 AM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson finally showed a bit of life Monday night against the Eagles.
Insight: Richardson ran for 79 tough yards and totaled 95 from scrimmage. Still, when it was time to put the ball in the end zone, the Colts went to Ahmad Bradshaw who caught two short touchdown passes.
 
Cold9/12/2014 10:30:00 AM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson was a disappointment in Week 1, rushing just six times for 20 yards.
Insight: An even worse sign is Richardson played 29 snaps and backup Ahmad Bradshaw was out there for 44 plays. Hopefully, the Colts won't fall behind the Eagles in Week 2 and Richardson can get equal time.
 
8/23/2014 10:02:00 PM
Description: Colts running back Trent Richardson ran the ball for 14 yards on four carries.
Insight: After struggling in the first two preseason games, Richardson seemed to run with a purpose on Saturday. He ran for five and eight yards on his first two carries, but then ran for one yard in his next two carries combined. He is still a risky pick in the fifth round, which is his ADP. Tell me if you have heard that before. Through the first two preseason games he's carried the ball 14 times for 34 yards. That's a 2.43 ypc average. Remind me why you would want him on your fantasy roster.
