Raiders | Trent Richardson on bubble?

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 10:24:50 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson may be on the bubble for the final roster, according to ESPN.com's Bill Williamson. Williamson said Michael Dyer could overtake Richardson.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson continues to disappoint. He's not worth drafting at this point.

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.

Raiders | Latavius Murray to compete to start

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 22:54:09 -0700

Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said Tuesday, March 24, that he expects RB Latavius Murray and RB Trent Richardson to compete for the starting tailback job. "I think it will be a competitive situation," Del Rio said.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has just 82 career carries and two touchdowns, but he might be the player with more upside over the disappointing Richardson. It will be a situation worth monitoring in training camp and the preseason. The winner will be worthy of a spot as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play, while the loser of the battle will be nothing more than an RB3 kept around for fantasy depth.

Raiders | Trent Richardson to compete to start

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 11:12:02 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson will be competing with RB Latavius Murray for the starting running back position this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson has been arguably the most disappointing running back in football over the last year. With Murray and Roy Helu also in the mix, Richardson's fantasy value is minimal. Murray is the favorite to start and Helu should see a lot of work on passing downs. Richardson is a roster filler on fantasy squads for now.

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 09:58:36 -0700

Free-agent RB Trent Richardson (Colts) signed with the Oakland Raiders Tuesday, March 17. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Even though the change in scenary may be good for Richardson, it is tough to see him as anything more than an RB4 or RB5 at this point in his career.

NFL | Trent Richardson files grievance

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 23:52:02 -0700

Free-agent RB Trent Richardson (Colts) has filed a grievance against the Indianapolis Colts over his January suspension.

Fantasy Tip: A total of over $3 million hangs in the balance with Richardson, who should be avoided at all costs in fantasy leagues even if he signs with another team. Richardson hasn't proven himself on the field with two teams now.

Colts | Trent Richardson released by Indy

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 14:16:29 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson was released Thursday, March 12.

Fantasy Tip: It was only a matter of time. The Colts recently signed Frank Gore and Richardson was at odds with Indianapolis anyway. Richardson should be considered no more than a flex play no matter where he plays next until he can get back on track.

Colts | Trent Richardson, Indy at odds

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 19:47:30 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson missed the team's walkthrough and flight for the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots. He was suspended two games without pay for not contacting the team prior to his absence. However, sources said his absence was due to serious complications with his girlfriend's pregnancy that could potentially have endangered the life of the child. Richardson rushed her to the hospital Jan. 17, the same day the team left for New England.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain how this situation will play out, if Richardson might be cut or if his suspension might be reduced or cut out completely. His fantasy outlook is also murky, but a change of scenery might do him some good at this point.

Colts | Trent Richardson critiqued by Patriot

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 16:34:56 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson needs to be more decisive when he runs, according to New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount. Blount said Richardson needs to find the creases his offensive line gives him and use his size to his advantage.

Fantasy Tip: Much has been made of Richardson's relatively lackadaisical play style as he has fallen out of favor with the Colts. At this juncture, Richardson doesn't possess a whole lot of fantasy value unless he can really turn things around.

Colts | Indy unhappy with Trent Richardson

Mon, 09 Feb 2015 10:29:23 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson developed a rocky relationship with the team last year, and the tension built up over the season because of weight issues, accessibility and an absence, according to multiple sources. Richardson was suspended two games for missing a walk-through. Richardson started the year at 225 pounds, but he ballooned up to 240 pounds later in the year, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: It's amazing how quickly T-Rich fell out of favor with the Colts last year. After the injury to Ahmad Bradshaw, Daniel Herron quickly outplayed Richardson and took the starting job. There's a good chance the Colts will look to cut him in the offseason, and even if he remains in Indy, we don't see much fantasy value to be had on draft day.

Colts | Trent Richardson's guarantee voided

Tue, 27 Jan 2015 07:40:21 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson's one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team voided the guarantee of a $3,184,062 salary in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson is expected by many to be cut in the offseason. He could be a worthwhile RB4 flyer in traditional leagues depending on the situation he lands in.

Colts | Won't commit to Trent Richardson

Fri, 23 Jan 2015 11:28:27 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson's status for next season is up in the air, according to general manager Ryan Grigson. "Where's he fit? Where's he going? Is his arrow up, down, sideways, 45 degree-angle?," Grigson said. "And we have to figure all these things out with guys in all different types of situations on this roster. There are guys across the board that are in a lot of different situations. But, again, when the coaches come back, when we seeing what's actually out there -- we have an idea, draft, juniors that have declared and things like that -- once that evolves we'll have a much better feel for what we need to do."

Colts | Trent Richardson was suspended

Wed, 21 Jan 2015 06:04:05 -0800

Updating previous reports, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson was suspended and deactivated for the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson is likely done in Indy, and he's still young enough to attract a team with at least a committee role. He'll be an RB4 or RB5 with some upside depending on the situation.

Colts | Trent Richardson doesn't travel with team

Sat, 17 Jan 2015 12:05:17 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (personal) did not make the trip to New England for the AFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: As has been the case for several weeks, Richardson should be kept out of FantasyScore lineups. Daniel Herron ($6,400, 12.8%) has played admirably starting in place of Richardson and is a worthwhile investment, especially considering his involvement in the passing game.

Colts | Trent Richardson says he won't be benched

Fri, 16 Jan 2015 11:16:42 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson said he will not be benched again after he was declared inactive for the Divisional Round playoff game but is not sure if he will play in the AFC Championship game. He said he is preparing as if he will be the starter but has been working as the fourth-string running back during practice and is working on the punt return team as well. Richardson was benched last week because head coach Chuck Pagano told him the other running backs on the roster gave the team a better chance to win. Richardson said he is prepared if he is needed to play running back this week.

Colts | Trent Richardson inactive

Sun, 11 Jan 2015 12:23:10 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson has been ruled inactive for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson is a healthy scratch in the team's biggest game of the season, which says a lot about how far his stock has fallen. Remove him from your FantasyScore lineups immediately.

Colts | Trent Richardson working with punt team

Thu, 08 Jan 2015 10:31:06 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson was working with the punt coverage team in practice Thursday, Jan. 8.

Fantasy Tip: It's a sign of how far Richardson's ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) fantasy value has fallen. He only saw one offensive snap last week, and he currently sits behind Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton in the pecking order. He's not worth your time at FantasyScore against the Denver Broncos.

Colts | Trent Richardson's role unclear

Thu, 08 Jan 2015 10:24:49 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson's role is unclear leading up to the divisional round game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 11, after he was demoted to third on the depth chart behind RBs Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton in the team's wild-card playoff win. Richardson only played on one offensive snap last weekend. "We're going to evaluate the situation as we go through the week and we'll know more as we go through the week," head coach Chuck Pagano said.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should be ignored at all costs in the divisional round against the Broncos. We may not even see him in the backfield at all in this one if the Colts have to throw a lot.

Colts | Trent Richardson would be costly cut

Thu, 08 Jan 2015 07:30:00 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson's $3,184,062 salary for 2015 is fully guaranteed, and he has an $8.5 million option for 2016. The team would have to eat his '15 salary if he's cut.

Fantasy Tip: T-Rich ($4,000; 8.0% of your cap) has clearly fallen out of favor and isn't a good option on FantasyScore this week.

Colts | Trent Richardson does not play

Sun, 04 Jan 2015 13:43:23 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (illness) was active for the wild-card playoff game but was held out of the game. Head coach Chuck Pagano said he expects Richardson to play in the Divisional Round playoff game.

Fantasy Tip: Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton shared carries during the game with Herron also helping out in the passing game. Richardson should be able to play next week but could be part of a committee. Herron may have the most value among the Colts running backs in the Divisional Round.

Colts | Trent Richardson questionable

Fri, 02 Jan 2015 13:05:25 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (illness) is listed as questionable for the team's wild-card playoff game against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday, Jan. 4, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Richardson missed practice Friday, Jan. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson ($4,800; 9.6% of cap) hasn't gone over 50 yards rushing since the middle of October, and he's seen his role reduced in the presence of Dan Herron. Indy's run game has been pretty weak for much of the year since Ahmad Bradshaw went down for the season. Even though the Bengals have a run D that is vulnerable, you should look to avoid Richardson at FantasyScore. If T-Rich sits, it'll make Herron ($5,100) a little more attractive as a sleeper.

Colts | Dan Herron finishes game

Tue, 09 Dec 2014 14:34:44 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson started in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns, but RB Dan Herron finished the game, and they used him on the game-winning drive. Herron played 47 of the team's 81 offensive snaps, while Richardson played 32 snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Herron ($5,500) nor Richardson ($4,300) did much on the ground against the Browns. The Houston Texans' run D has been adequate of late, and if Herron and Richardson continue to split reps, neither will be a very attractive FantasyScore option in Week 15.

Colts | Trent Richardson's role won't be reduced

Tue, 02 Dec 2014 15:27:19 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson won't have his role reduced by head coach Chuck Pagano after RB Dan Herron outplayed Richardson for the second straight week in Week 13 against the Washington Redskins. Herron has run for 153 yards and a touchdown in the last two games, while Richardson has just 54 yards rushing. "He's a professional, he understands," Pagano said. "None of us can ever get away from working at our craft regardless of the circumstance, regardless of adversity, just keep grinding, just keep working, just keep swinging the ax. If he keeps swinging the ax, the tree will fall. If you put the ax down, the tree is never coming down. Just keep chopping wood and good things will happen."

Fantasy Tip: That said, we all know that Herron ($5,500) is the better fantasy football option, especially in leagues that reward receptions like FantasyScore. Richardson ($4,400) will get a chance to play his old mates in the Cleveland Browns this weekend, but he doesn't inspire confidence in daily leagues, even as a flex option.

Colts | Dan Herron outplays T-Rich

Mon, 01 Dec 2014 10:26:20 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron led the team in rushing for the second straight week despite fumbling for the second straight week. Herron had 88 yards and a touchdown on eight carries, while RB Trent Richardson totaled just 12 yards on the same amount of carries in the win over the Washington Redskins. Herron has averaged 7.7 yards per carry in the last two weeks, and he's also contributed in the passing game, with QB Andrew Luck targeting him seven times in the last two weeks, and Herron has caught all seven targets. "He's a talented, talented guy, and I think we've seen that out of him," Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said. "He's quick, he's fast to hit the hole and once he gets outside, he's got some long speed; I think we all found that out."

Fantasy Tip: After another solid performance ahead of Richardson, Herron is clearly the running back to own on this team. Herron also has much more upside now at FantasyScore, where catches are rewarded. Herron should be another fine play in daily leagues against the Cleveland Browns in Week 14.

Colts | Trent Richardson probable

Fri, 21 Nov 2014 12:27:30 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (illness) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 21, and is listed as probable for Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson should be able to play this week and may receive a majority of the carries. He does have a favorable matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars this week but may be too expensive on FantasyScore at $5,600. Richardson could be an option at running back or the flex position if owners are comfortable with using him.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson appears to be over his illness and should be able to play in Week 12. Richardson likely will receive a majority of the work at running back with Ahmad Bradshaw out for the season. Richardson costs $5,600 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to use other options.

Colts | Pagano has confidence in Dan Herron

Mon, 17 Nov 2014 14:50:09 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is expected to take on a much larger role in the offense with the season-ending injury to RB Ahmad Bradshaw (leg). "Now Boom (Daniel Herron) will have an opportunity. We've seen glimpses of Boom in the preseason and at other times. We know he's more than capable. I know Boom will prepare. He always prepares as a starter. I think he'll do fine, and he'll take advantage of this opportunity," Pagano said. Pagano also refused to say whether RB Trent Richardson would be the team's third-down back.

Fantasy Tip: Herron will no doubt be cheap in the coming weeks, and he could be a sleeper play immediately against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12. Richardson's FantasyScore value should increase, as well, especially if he's in on passing downs.

Colts | Trent Richardson off injury report

Fri, 31 Oct 2014 07:28:47 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is not on the injury report for Week 9, and should be able to play Monday, Nov. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson ($4,600; 9.2% of cap) has been an underwhelming play all season, and Ahmad Bradshaw has stolen the thunder. Bradshaw will set you back $6,300 on FantasyScore this week and is a decent option against his former club the New York Giants.

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson was active for the team's Week 8 game but did not receive playing time. Richardson may be on track to play in Week 9 but would continue to share time with Ahmad Bradshaw. Richardson costs $4,600 on FantasyScore but may not be the best option to use this week.

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is active for the team's Week 8 game.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson could be limited because of the injury, so he is a risky option for owners this week. Richardson costs $4,600 on FantasyScore, but owners may want to look to use other options at running back or the flex position.

Colts | Trent Richardson questionable

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 10:52:51 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the chances aren't looking good that he plays.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson's absence will significantly boost the value of Ahmad Bradshaw ($6,300) at FantasyScore, especially because of Bradshaw's ability to catch passes out of the backfield.

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) has been doing rehab work this week but hasn't practiced. He could be a game-time decision in Week 8 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: With the Colts playing an afternoon game Sunday, Richardson ($4,600) needs to be avoided at FantasyScore. Ahmad Bradshaw ($6,300) who has been the more productive back, especially in PPR leauges, is a solid option for your lineups.

Thu, 23 Oct 2014 12:15:35 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Tip: It is not looking good Richardson to play in Week 8, but owners should continue to monitor the situation. Ahmad Bradshaw would receive more work if Bradshaw misses the game and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore at $6,300.

Colts | Trent Richardson expects to play

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 20:34:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) said Wednesday, Oct. 22, that he expects to play in the Week 8 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was injured in the second half of the Week 7 win against the Cincinnati Bengals, and could have returned. However, he was held out because the game had already been decided.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners should still play it safe and wait to see him participate in a full practice session before plugging him into the lineup. If Richardson cannot go, or suffers a setback, Ahmad Bradshaw ($6300 or 12.6 percent of cap) would be in line for even more touches.

Colts | Trent Richardson sits out

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:19:08 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if Richardson will be able to practice later in the week. Richardson probably will continue to share time with Ahmad Bradshaw if he is active for the game. Richardson costs $4,600 on FantasyScore and could be a flex option for owners.
