There is speculation that Trent Richardson ran out of gas at the end of Cleveland's heart-breaking OT loss to Dallas. We break down the fantasy implications.
Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson got his biggest workload of the season in Week 11, and it showed. Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland speculates that Richardson ran out of gas in the second half of the Browns' OT loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Richardson had 93 total yards in the first half, but slowed to just 51 in the second half. He also fumbled in the red zone and failed to leap over the 1-yard line in a critical 4th down play.
Fantasy Impact: Pat Shurmur clearly didn't think so: "We're going full circle now. You want to give him the ball every play, now I give it to him a few times and he's too tired?"
T-Rich had 144 total yards on the day, so fantasy owners will be happy with the points, but there's a non-zero chances of the team scaling back his touches as the season winds down. He remains a solid RB2 against the Steelers in Week 12.
