Trent Richardson, Donald Brown and the Indianapolis Colts face off against the undefeated Denver Broncos in Week 7. After being traded to the Colts early in the season from the Cleveland Browns, Richardson hasn't quite found a way to put it all together yet. He is averaging an anemic 3.2 yards per carry and has only two touchdowns on the year. Back up Donald Brown has played well in his limited opportunities.
While it is fair to assume that Richardson is still getting comfortable in his new system, his lack of productive thus far is still noteworthy. He has not rushed for more than 60 yards in a game and has only caught two passes since arriving in Indianapolis. It is fair to wonder if the Colts would be better served by giving Donald Brown more carries, at least until Richardson settles in.
Fantasy Impact: The Colts will face what many consider to be the NFL's best team in the Denver Broncos. Denver quarterback Peyton Manning leads the league's highest scoring offense. With Richardson not yet up to speed and the Colts likely to be playing from behind, both Richardson and Brown are not recommended plays this week.
