Fantasy Analysis | 1412204821
Status quo for Trent Richardson
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Prior to Week 4, you probably weren't the least bit excited about starting Trent Richardson in Fantasy. But then he scored a touchdown, which, combined with an uncharacteristic 52 receiving yards, led to a 15-point showing in standard CBSSports.com leagues.

But here's what he still didn't do against the Titans: run the ball effectively, which is saying something considering they rank 22nd against the run, allowing 127.0 yards per game. On a daring 20 carries, Richardson picked up only 47 yards for an average of 2.4 yards per carry.

I don't see him doing any better against the Ravens in Week 7. They rank seventh against the run, allowing 82.5 yards per game and 3.3 yards per carry.

No one can predict whether or not Richardson will get a carry at the goal line -- for some reason, the Colts keep going back to him -- but if he doesn't, just like the first three weeks, you won't like what he does for your Fantasy team.

Colts still getting both backs involved
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Colts are just going to keep giving Trent Richardson the ball. We just have to accept it.

He racked up another 20 carries in Week 4 against the Titans, despite rushing for just 47 yards. He made up for the typically mediocre running performance with his first rushing touchdown of the season, along with 52 yards through the air.

Of course, his understudy continues to lose playing time as Richardson's role grows, though Ahmad Bradshaw has remained Fantasy relevant in spite of that. He caught another touchdown Sunday, his fourth in three games, despite carrying the ball just nine times yet again.

The good news is, both players seem to have very defined roles in the offense at this point. Richardson is the workhorse, whether he deserves to be or not, while Bradshaw remains a force in the passing game. The Ravens have done a solid job against running backs this season, but both Bradshaw and Richardson should be considered decent options for Week 5's matchup.

Trent Richardson nets 15th career rushing touchdown
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Colts running back Trent Richardson fell a yard shy of 100 total yards Sunday against the Titans. Still, he had one of his best performances of the season during a 41-17 win.

Richardson had a team-high 47 rushing yards on 20 carries, while adding four catches for 52 yards. Richardson recorded his first touchdown and 15th career rushing touchdown when he scored from 1-yard out with 7:06 left in the first quarter to give Indianapolis a 7-0 lead.

The Colts are back in action Week 5 vs. Baltimore.

Trent Richardson enthusiastic about progress in 2014
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Colts running back Trent Richardson is having a lot of fun again - and that alone represents a change from his first three seasons in the NFL.

"It's not so much of a job anymore of where I need to do this, I need to do that," Richardson told ESPN.com. "It was fun last year, but it wasn't to where it is at this moment. I can say I can really contribute to the team other than practice."

He has done that, at least to a far greater extent than he did a year ago. Richadson is averaging 3.8 yards per carry after stumbling along at 2.9 YPC in 2013. He rushed for 135 yards in 36 carries over the past two games combined. He seems to have wrested the featured back spot away from Ahmad Bradshaw, who received 22 attempts in those games.

Trent Richardson's playing time eclipses Ahmad Bradshaw's
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

For the first time all season, Trent Richardson saw the field more than Ahmad Bradshaw in Week 3 against the Jaguars, according to StampedeBlue.com, a Colts blog.

Richardson has shown signs of life over the last few games, and the team rewarded him with 38 of the team's 74 offensive plays. Bradshaw, on the other hand, was limited to just 25 snaps, despite averaging more yards per rush and reception. Entering Week 3, Bradshaw had played 29 more snaps than Richardson through the first two games.

The Colts are heavily invested in Richardson finding his way, and if Sunday's game is any reflection, the team is starting to reflect that in the workload. Keep an eye on this moving forward, Fantasy owners.
