Browns RB Trent Richardson: 'I'm going to get the ball'

We've all assumed that the Cleveland Browns are going to give running back Trent Richardson as much work as he can handle right out of the gate. On Tuesday, Richardson basically told, yeah, he's going to be all over the place in his rookie year.
"They're doing a lot of stuff with me as far as coming out of the backfield," Richardson said of his coaches. "They're really putting me out there to showcase everything. ... There ain't no sugarcoating. I'm going to get the ball. I'm going to catch the ball. I'm going to block. I'm going to do everything I can and they're going to put me in the best situation. I want to be that guy they dont have to take off the field."

Fantasy Analysis:

Richardson is FFToolbox's No. 8 RB. There is some worry that it'll be too much, too soon for Richardson, and that he might break down. But really, what other choices do the Browns have? They view Richardson as a workhorse, and they're going to give him every chance to prove it. With the expected workload, he's a clear-cut RB1.
