Montario Hardesty could get healthy workload Sunday: Fantasy implications

Matt Sullivan

Montario Hardesty could see some decent playing time with Trent Richardson banged up. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns RB Montario Hardesty could see quite the workload against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. According to the Canton Repository, starter Trent Richardson has banged up ribs (he will be wearing a flak jacket in this game) and the Colts have a "sorry run defense."

Hardesty was moderately successful filling in for Richardson against the Bengals last week, getting 56 rushing yards on 15 attampts and one TD.

Fantasy Impact: The Browns are still being careful with Richardson's workload, so there's no reason to think Hardesty won't get around 8-10 touches. What he does with those touches is a mystery. Week 6 was the first significant playing Hardesty had all year.

With Chris Ogbonnaya also in the picture, I can't recommend Hardesty as anything more than a desperate bye-week filler, even with Indy's defense.
