Yes, RB Trent Richardson will continue to start for Browns

Browns running back Trent Richardson has been a low-end No. 1 back in fantasy for some time now, mostly because he gets a lot of touches and scores touchdowns. The yardage totals? They leave something to be desired, and Richardson's 3.5 yards per carry average through 13 games has led some beat reporters to speculate that the rookie might lose his starting job to backup Montario Hardesty @MoHard20 down the stretch. Offensive coordinator Brad Childress was quick Friday to say that will not be the case.
"We're not there," Childress said of a role reversal between the two backs. "Certainly we're not there."

Fantasy Analysis:

Childress did acknowledge that Hardesty will get a series or two all to himself during games, but he's not a legit threat to turn this backfield into a timeshare. Richardson is the best runner the Browns have by far, and they will continue to use him 20-25 times per game. Again, he's a low-end RB1 this Sunday against the Redskins.
