Trent Richardson injury update: Probable status makes him a fantasy must-start

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson expects to play in Week 11. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson is expected to play Sunday, despite being banged up. The rookie first-rounder immediately became the workhorse back for the Browns, and will look to assume those duties following last week's bye.

Richardson was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. However, he was listed on the team's injury report with chest, rib and finger ailments.

Fantasy Analysis: Right now, Richardson is experiencing the natural wear and tear of being a feature back in the NFL. He is tough and sturdy, and should be able to play through this without any drop off in performance.

He will get the majority of the touches for his team this weekend and likely account for most of their offensive production. Richardson is a must-start, as he is the Brown's main source of total offense and scoring.
