Trent Richardson proves worth for fantasy owners in Week 4

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Trent Richardson managed to score the only touchdown for the Browns on Thursday night. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland relied on Phil Dawson for the majority of the scoring against Baltimore in Week 4, but Trent Richardson found the end zone in the second quarter to provide the only touchdown of the game for the Browns. He finished with 18 touches for 104 total yards, rushing and receiving.

Fantasy Impact: It's hard for a rookie running back to score put up huge numbers on a team with little help. Richardson is clearly the focus for opposing defenses, as no one will really show too much concern regarding Brandon Weeden at quarterback. The good news for owners is Richardson has scored in each of his last three games now, providing a promising sign for his value despite the fact he's on a team in need of more help.
