Trent Richardson injury update: Fantasy value still solid after limited Wednesday practice

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE

The rookie managed to play and score big in Week 8, could he do the same in Week 9? We break down the fantasy implications.

Browns running back Trent Richardson (ribs) was limited in practice on Wednesday, but Cleveland is likely just being cautious with their star rookie. Richardson has been mostly limited since hurting his ribs several weeks ago, but was able to start last week and gain a season-high 122 yards against the Chargers.

The Browns play the Ravens on Sunday, the league's 30th ranked run defense.

Brandon Weeden (groin) and Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring) each had full practices.

Fantasy Take: Owners that played it cautious last week with Richardson paid the price and likely won't make that mistake again. The issue is still inconsistency, as he has run for less than 50 yards in five of eight games this year, but he does have five touchdowns.

Richardson is a solid RB1 in Week 9.
