Trent Richardson suffers no setbacks in Week 8: Fantasy implications

Jason Miller

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson (rib) suffered no setbacks in Week 8. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson didn't suffer a setback in Week 8 against the San Diego Chargers, according to head coach Pat Shurmur. Richardson, who has been bothered by a rib injury, ran for 122 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries in leading the Browns to their second victory of the season.

Richardson was listed as questionable heading into the game and had been pulled from the previous game against the Indianapolis Colts because of the injury. The Browns face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It's good to hear that Richardson didn't suffer a setback but it shouldn't be a surprise considering how well he ran on Sunday against the Chargers. He is a key piece to this offense and will be relied upon this week against the Baltimore.

Fantasy owners should be able to start Richardson with confidence in Week 9.
