Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson (chest, rib, finger) practiced in full on Wednesday as he prepares to start against the Oakland Raiders. Richardson has dealt with a myriad of different injuries this season, but has yet to miss a game.
It's been a heavy workload as of late for Richardson. Since carrying the ball just eight times against the Colts in Week 7, Richardson has carried it between 24 and 29 times in the four games since. He has 209 rushes for 755 yards and six touchdowns on the season.
Fantasy Take: "Welcome to the NFL, Rookie" has a whole different tone to it when it's said by this current version of the Oakland Raiders. It's more like it's coming from a Wal-Mart greeter. The Raiders have allowed an average of 42.25 points per game over their last four, while Richardson is just warming up over his last four.
Sometimes things do not work out as you expect, but I expect him to flirt with 200 yards and a couple touchdowns on Sunday.
