Trent Richardson, RB, Colts
|RB - #6||IND||Active||3 years||22||5'9||230|
2013 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Nov-04-2013 by Vin Sadicario
Update (11-4): It's fair to say that even with a bye week, the Colts still haven't solved their Trent Richardson run game woes. Ignore the fact that Indy went into passing game mode against the Texans after falling three scores behind, thus limiting the ground game chances. While the ex-Brown went 20 yards on eight carries, Donald Brown had 49 on six rushes. Starting in Week 4, Richardson's rush totals: 60, 56, 40. 37, 20. Always a threat for a TD, though he's gone four games without. Let's consider Week 10's matchup against the Rams as Richardson's personal Alamo.
Profile: Trent Richardson's trade to the Indianapolis Colts should be seen as a good thing for himself as well as his fantasy owners. Richardson should take over as the Colts' primary running back as soon as he gets fully acquainted with his teammates and the new playbook. Ahmad Bradshaw should see a limited amount of carries, but Richardson will be the team's go-to running back for the remainder of the season.
Pro Football Talk reports that the Colts have decided to give it another year with running back Ahmad Bradshaw. He played in just three games as a Colt in 2013, and it wasn't a foot problem that did him in for once. It was his neck. Bradshaw didn't play after Week 3 and underwent season-ending surgery in Week 5. He finished with 186 yards and two scores over 41 carries.Fantasy Analysis:
That works out to 4.5 yards per carry. So, despite a lengthy injury history, Bradshaw showed that he can still be a productive piece at this level. He will turn 28 years old later this month and should be the odds-on favorite over Vick Ballard to start the 2014 season as Trent Richardson's direct backup. Free agent Donald Brown will be moving on. Given Richardson's failures during his first year in Indy, Bradshaw should be a fairly popular handcuff if he wins that No. 2 gig.

|1.12||Bruno Boys - The 3 starting WR PPR format steered more of the first round picks toward early receiver picks than I was anticipating. Four of the five picks preceding mine were wide receivers which signaled that value was elsewhere. I was ecstatic to see Trent Richardson on the board here and happily selected him. By all accounts he may be in for one of the heaviest dual purpose running back workloads in recent memory. Richardson is on track to be at full health by Week 1 and given how ridiculously successful his injury-riddled rookie campaign was, the sky is the limit now that Pat ?Can?t Buy a First Down? Shurmur is gone.|
