Trent Richardson's role makes him fantasy gold

Ronald Martinez

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson touches the ball 34 times in Week 11 loss. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson had 34 touches on Sunday. In a crushing Week 11 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the Browns' rookie tailback was a significant contributor. Richardson carried the ball 28 times for 95 yards.

On top of his rushing total, Richardson caught six balls for 49 yards against the Cowboys.

Fantasy Analysis: It does not matter the opponent; week after week, Trent Richardson is going to account for a significant portion of the Browns total offense. Additionally, he is a very skilled football player that can carry the load for the team.

The Browns use him as an all-purpose threat, so he racks up fantasy points from everywhere. In PPR leagues, he is even more of a threat. When healthy, keep Richardson in your lineup each week without hesitation.
