Huddle Up: Some are saying Richardson looks good this preseason but they must be watching games from his time at Alabama by mistake. Richardson is still dancing behind the line and looks like the same back he has for the last year and a half. He plays in an explosive offense but right now Richardson's big rookie year looks like a lifetime ago

Huddle Up: With fellow RB Vick Ballard's season already over before it got started, the Colts are counting on a bounce-back season from Richardson more than ever and certainly aren't going to take the chance of aggravating a minor issue in the opening week of camp.

Huddle Up: Uh, yeah, there's zero chance a contender such as the Colts will keep giving Richardson start after start if he's averaging anywhere close to the 2.9 yards per carry he averaged a season ago.

Huddle Up: Everyone in Indy continues to bend over backwards with optimism regarding Richardson, and maybe things will work out for the former first-round pick this season. Fantasy owners are most definitely viewing him with a 40-pound sack of salt, however.

Huddle Up: Indy still has to say that, seeing as they gave away a first-round pick to acquire Richardson. We'll see how he holds up through camp in competition with a healthy Ahmad Bradshaw and a healthy Vick Ballard, though at this point he still has to be considered the favorite for carries in the Colts' backfield.

Huddle Up: You may recall that not understanding the offense was one of Richardson's rationales for his struggles last year. So at least he's getting the offense now, which should help.
Posted: 4/24/2014 7:32pm ET
Huddle Up: In any case, Richardson is sure to be available at a bargain price in fantasy drafts this summer, and could surprise if he's truly figured things out.

Huddle Up: Nice, subtle way for Pagano to emphasize to Richardson that Indy gave up a first-round pick for him and he needs to deliver on that potential. Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard are around to swipe carries if Richardson doesn't live up to those expectations.

Huddle Up: Just another hurdle to clear for Richardson as he attempts to regain fantasy relevancy after his fantasy train wreck of a 2013 season.
Posted: 2/5/2014 11:00pm ET
Huddle Up: At least some of Richardson's struggles last season were attributed to him not knowing the offense, so extra time in the playbook should help in that regard.

Huddle Up: It's no news flash that Richardson was one of the biggest fantasy flops of the season, finishing with only 1 100 total-yard game and 4 TDs -- all after getting picked 10th overall on average in redraft leagues. On the other hand, the Colts aren't about to give up on the RB after 14 games and trading away their 2014 first-round pick to acquire him.

Huddle Up: Facing the banged-up Pats' D is a great matchup for the Indy RBs, but it's been hard to trust Richardson all season, especially after his 1-touch, 1-fumble outing last week. Donald Brown (15 touches-102 total yards-2 TDs vs. K.C.) is the Colts' back you're using.
Posted: 12/5/2013 11:23am ET
Huddle Up: So then we should expect an uptick in Richardson's performance after he's had a chance to sit and observe? Well, bump T-Rich up your dynasty sheets for next year, evidently.
Posted: 11/23/2013 1:13pm ET
Huddle Up: Even if Richardson does play, he should be on your bench against Arizona's second ranked rush defense. Richardson is averaging fewer than 10 points per week in PPR leagues this year. In standard leagues he's off the map. The only people who are still starting Richardson on their fantasy teams at this point are the guys who traded a first-round pick to Cleveland to get him.
Posted: 11/22/2013 6:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Richardson has been limited the past 2 days with a calf issue that seemed to crop up between Wednesday and Thursday. He should play, but then again a healthy Richardson hasn't been all that productive. Expect Donald Brown to see as much or more work than he usually does.
Posted: 11/19/2013 2:00pm ET
Huddle Up: With his ground struggles, the Colts at least got Richardson involved in the passing game in Week 11 and he finished with a season-high 5 catches for 31 yards. That aside, though, the rushing numbers speak for themselves as Brown has outrushed Richardson (293-272 yards) on exactly half the carries (96-48) and has ran for one more score (3-2) since T-Rich joined the team in Week 3. Expect a fantasy unfriendly 50-50 timeshare going forward.

Huddle Up: New week, same story for Richardson. Pep Hamilton said "He'll continue to make big plays for us." Fantasy owners would love to know when he started to make big plays. Richardson has a good match-up this week but he's been a huge disappointment on two different teams this season. At some point it's not the offensive lines and the play calling, it's the guy carrying the ball. Start Richardson at your own risk. He's averaging 9 fantasy points in PPR leagues through eight games.

Huddle Up: There was concern Richardson might not be available this weekend, but his return to practice suggests he'll play. Nonetheless, Donald Brown is horning in on Richardson's carries and would be in line for even more work if Richardson is limited or aggravates his ankle injury.
Posted: 11/7/2013 2:19pm ET
Huddle Up: Richardson very well may play but can he produce? Ever since he rushed for 60 yards and a TD in Week 4 against the Jags, Richardson has seen his rushing totals fall each week, going from 60 to 56 to 40 to 37 to 20 this past Sunday night in Houston. He also hasn't found the end zone since the Jacksonville game, while No. 2 back Donald Brown has looked more effective.
Posted: 10/2/2013 1:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Richardson has scored in each of his games as a Colt, but he hasn't been particularly dominant. Indy's running game is a work in progress anyway, so Pagano is right: no need to be concerned at this juncture.
Posted: 9/22/2013 2:31pm ET
Huddle Up: A limited workload against a tough 49ers defense doesn't sounds like a recipe for success. However, crazy things have happened today already.
Posted: 9/19/2013 1:16pm ET
Huddle Up: Richardson and the Colts will be facing what's sure to be an angry 49er D after the 29-3 loss in Seattle this past Sunday, but you didn't use that high draft pick on Richardson to be your fantasy water boy, either, so roll with him in your starting lineup and see what develops in his Indy debut.
Posted: 9/18/2013 6:39pm ET
Huddle Up: It's as big of an in-season trade that you'll see two weeks into the year. Richardson and his fantasy owners have to be thrilled. Instead of wasting away in Cleveland, he now moves to Indianapolis where he'll join one of the best young offenses in the NFL. Richardson will step right in as the Colts' bellcow, moving Ahmad Bradshaw to occasional third-down duties. After two weeks of disappointing owners, this is a huge boast for Richardson's fantasy value. He may not play in Week 3 against San Francisco but Richardson will be a fantasy stud the rest of the way in the Colts' offense.
Posted: 9/12/2013 12:57pm ET
Huddle Up: Richardson's fantasy owners are all for this game plan after the RB only received 13 carries and caught 2 passes last week in the season-opening loss to the Dolphins.
Posted: 8/27/2013 12:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Richardson's offseason workouts consisted of carrying fantasy owners on his shoulders. So long as he carries enough weight to hold up to the workload Norv Turner intends to give him, doesn't matter what the scale says.
