  • Richardson registered six total tackles, including one sack and two QB hits, during Sunday's 10-7 win against the Texans. Richardson has been a rock for Cleveland's front this season, starting all nine games for the Browns while logging 3.5 sacks and a total of 38 tackles. The Missouri product has been enjoying an uptick in pass-rushing success of late, notching four QB hits over his past three outings after registering just two combined Weeks 1 through 6. He's second on the team in QB hits (six) behind Myles Garrett (14) heading into a Week 11 matchup against the Eagles. Carson Wentz has been sacked at a league-high rate of 3.9 times per game, while Philadelphia ranks third worst in the NFL in giveaways (17).

  • Richardson made seven tackles -- 1.5 for a loss -- and a half sack in Sunday's 37-34 win over the Bengals. Richardson was a part of a crucial sack in the second quarter, as the Bengals were at the Browns' 11-yard line, but rookie quarterback Joe Burrow was taken down by Richardson and cornerback Kevin Johnson, forcing a field goal. With 2.5 sacks through seven games, Richardson is on track to reach his highest total since the 2014 season (eight), and his average of four tackles per game represents a solid IDP floor as well.

  • Richardson (thigh) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Colts, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. The 29-year-old began the week not practicing, but he progressed to full participation Friday and is clear of the questionable tag. Richardson has played two-thirds of the defensive snaps through four games and has 14 total tackles and two sacks.

  • Richardson recorded four tackles, a sack and a pass breakup in Sunday's 34-20 win over Washington. Richardson now has two sacks through three games, and he sits just one sack shy of last year's total through 16 games. The 29-year-old has also played at least 61 percent of defensive snaps in every game this season. He doesn't pile up tackles, but the recent trend in sacks is encouraging for his IDP prospects.

  • Richardson racked up six tackles (four solo), a sack and two tackles for loss in Thursday's 35-30 win over the Bengals. Richardson lived in the Bengals' backfield against an underwhelming offensive line. The sack was his first of the season. Richardson totaled eight sacks in his second NFL season with the Jets back in 2014, but he hasn't mustered more than five in any season since, and he's unlikely to challenge that career-high number now that he's playing more of an interior role at this stage of his career.
