Trent Richardson carries the load in Week 12, a fantasy workhorse

Jason Miller

Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson carried the load for his team in Week 12. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson continued to be the workhorse for his team in Week 12. On Sunday, the rookie tailback touched the ball 33 times for 112 total yards and a touchdown.

Taking advantage of the other team's misfortune, the Browns were able to steal a win from the battered Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Analysis: The Browns drafted Richardson with the intent of focusing the offense around him. He is a dynamic player on a team that lacks playmakers.

The Browns are going to continue to get Richardson the ball in the air and ground game. He is an all-purpose machine and that is why he is worth starting each week. Consider Trent Richardson to be a top-end RB1 in all fantasy leagues.
