Trent Richardson is questionable. We break down the fantasy implications.

Trent Richardson (knee) put in a full practice this week and is questionable to play in Cincinnati on Sunday.

Analysis: The questionable tag shouldn't scare off his fantasy owners as much as how poorly Brandon Weeden played on Sunday. The Browns will face eight-man fronts all year and T-Rich could only muster up 2.1 YPC on his 19 carries. Yuck. Richardson will be a low-end RB2 until the Browns can how they can put up some points on offense. The Bengals have a very good front four and it might be interesting to see if Richardson gets more than three targets this week. If you drafted him, chances are you're going to be starting him.
