Trent Richardson is expected to start for the Cleveland Browns against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday despite being listed on the Browns' injury report this week with chest, ribs and finger injuries. Richardson was a full participant in practice throughout the week before being listed as probable on Friday.
Richardson has recorded at least 122 total yards of offense in each of his last four games, rushing for two touchdowns. He is one of four running backs with at least 40 receptions this season.
Fantasy Impact: Richardson is a must-start fantasy option this week, facing a Raiders defense that is allowing 4.7 yards per carry on the season, and has given up 15 rushing touchdowns. Richardson has also been one of the best receivers out of the backfield in the league this season, giving him a nice boost for PPR owners. He should help out a lot of owners make successful playoff runs.
