Cleveland Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson is officially listed at questionable for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. We break down the fantasy implications.
Cleveland Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson is officially listed at questionable for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Richardson had arthroscopic knee surgery earlier this summer, and his status for the season opener has been up in the air ever since. He was limited in practice on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The Browns have a tough matchup against a talented Eagles defense.
Fantasy Impact: Trent Richardson is an extremely risky fantasy option for Week 1. He has a terrible matchup against the Eagle for starters. Richardson's workload is now also a question, which was his biggest calling card entering the season. He's a talented back, but Richardson should be on your bench this week.
