Trent Richardson had a big day against the Bengals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson reminded everyone why he was the No. 3 overall pick with a huge Week 2. Playing the Cincinnati Bengals, Richardson ripped off 109 rushing yards and a TD on 19 attempts, and caught four passes for an additional 36 yards and another score. The Browns ended up losing 34-27.

Fantasy Impact: Now that's more like it. Richardson had plenty of question marks after missing the preseason with knee surgery and a rough rookie debut in Week 1. Fantasy owners needed this game almost as much as Richardson did - this is what he's capable of, and he can do it almost every week. Richardson is now a must-start as the Browns face the Buffalo Bills in Week 3.
