Trent Richardson: RB listed as questionable, expected to play for fantasy owners

Michael Hickey

The Colts running back practiced on Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 10. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts running back Trent Richardson (ankle) practiced on Friday and is tentatively expected to suit up for the team's Week 10 game against the Saint Louis Rams. Richardson did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday and presents a risky fantasy play.

Fantasy Impact: Richardson has a favorable match up in the Rams. However, owners have little reason to have faith in him as a strong fantasy play. Richardson is averaging an anemic 3.1 yards per carry on the season and has only found the end zone twice. When one factors in his ankle issue and questionable tag, T-Rich leaves little reason for optimism.

The Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton has publicly stated that he wants to get Richardson the ball more. This is yet to be seen has the former first-round pick only saw eight carries last week. He is averaging just under 14 carries per game since arriving to the Colts via trade in Week 3.

Richardson is a meddling Flex play in Week 10. The Colts have also gotten running back Donald Brown into the mix in recent weeks. Until Richardson finds a way to produce, owners simply can not trust him as more than a Flex play.
