Raiders | Trent Richardson returning kicks

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 17:35:16 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson has been getting more repetitions than RB Taiwan Jones as the team's kickoff returner.

Fantasy Tip: This further signifies Richardson's decline as a fantasy-relevant running back. Owners should consider Latavius Murray's job to be safe.

Raiders | Trent Richardson listed as backup

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 12:23:28 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson is listed as the backup behind RB Latavius Murray.

Fantasy Tip: This could just be to start the preseason, but it's somewhat of a surprise that Richardson would be ahead of Roy Helu. Helu is a better pass-catcher and Richardson is notorious for his lackluster running style. As of now, Richardson still isn't worth drafting.

Raiders | Trent Richardson battled pneumonia

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 14:16:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson (illness) said he battled pneumonia for a couple of weeks before the start of training camp, but he's feeling fine now and practiced for the first time Thursday, Aug. 6. Head coach Jack Del Rio said Richardson is down in the 220-pound rage after being sick, after weighing a reported 240 pounds last season. Richardson is averaging 3.3 yards per carry in his career. RB Michael Dyer has put pressure on Richardson's roster spot with a strong first week of camp.

Fantasy Tip: T-Rich could be buried on the depth chart behind Latavius Murray, Roy Helu and Dyer by the time the regular season starts. He should be avoided in typical fantasy leagues, but depending on the health of the other running backs ahead of him throughout the year, he could be a waiver wire target at some point.

Raiders | Trent Richardson practicing

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 11:11:10 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson (undisclosed) is participating in practice Thursday, Aug. 6, for the first time since the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson started camp on the Non-Football Injury list but has returned to practice. Richardson may be on the roster bubble during training camp and likely will not have a big role if he does make the team. Richardson could be a late-round option in deeper leagues, owners probably should pass on him during drafts.

Raiders | Trent Richardson's spot in jeopardy?

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 16:37:07 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson is likely competing with RB Michael Dyer for a spot on the 53-man roster, and NFL.com's Ian Rapoport puts Richardson's chances of making the final roster at 50-50.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson was expected to compete for the starting job, and if he ends up failing to make the roster, Latavius Murray becomes a safe RB2 option while Roy Helu would be worth a late flier in points-per-reception formats.

Raiders | Trent Richardson placed on NFI list

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:37:38 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson (undisclosed) was placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury list Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson is expected to compete for the starting running back job when he is cleared to practice. He is likely the underdog in the competition but should see playing time even if he does not win the job. Richardson could be a late-round option in deeper leagues as depth at the position.

Raiders | Trent Richardson not impressing

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 07:16:07 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson is rumored to being unimpressive with his new team.

Fantasy Tip: Latavius Murray seems to be the talk of camp and he could have a breakout year as a low-end RB2 or high-end RB3. T-Rich shouldn't be drafted as much more than a handcuff unless he carves out a decent-sized role.

Raiders | Trent Richardson sees opportunity

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 17:49:52 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson plans to make the most of a fresh start in Oakland. "I know what they [the coaching staff] expect and how they're going to spread the field, putting me in a position to be successful," said Richardson. "With that, in talking to [Head] Coach [Jack Del Rio], he just said there is just a lot of opportunity out here. He said he isn't going to promise me anything, but if I come in and work, I can be that bell cow," Richardson said Tuesday, July 28.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson has scored just six touchdowns, while playing in 31 games for two teams over the past two seasons. Latavius Murray should be expected to enter the season as the Raiders' starting running back, as he has far more upside than Richardson.

Raiders | Trent Richardson drops weight

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 10:38:45 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson lost some weight this offseason and showed some quickness during offseason workouts, according to offensive line coach Mike Tice.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson been a bit of a disappointment since entering the league but will look to play well for the Raiders. He probably will not start this season but should receive some carries. Richardson could be a late-round option in deeper leagues as a handcuff to Latavius Murray or depth at the position.
