Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson will be a full participant in practice this week. We discuss the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson (knee) will be a full participant in practice this week (via Nate Ulrich). With this news, the Browns sound like they expect him to start this weekend against the division rival Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Impiications: The high first-rounder is the premier back in Cleveland's offense and the central focus of their rebuilding process. Whenever Richardson starts, he is expected to get a lot of touches, both rushing and receiving. He is in a position to account for the majority of Cleveland's offensive production in 2012, which makes him a must-start when healthy. Owners should monitor his status, but it looks like Richardson will be good to go this weekend against the Bengals.
