Indianapolis Colts running back Trent Richardson (calf) is listed as questionable but is expected to play in the team's Week 12 match up against the Arizona Cardinals. Richardson appeared on the injury report on Thursday but his status doesn't appear to be in doubt.
Fantasy Impact: Richardson should be available for owners but his fantasy outlook remains unchanged. Fast approaching the "bust" designation, the former third overall pick has run for only 377 yards and two touchdowns on the season. Averaging three yards per carry and only 19 receptions on the year, T-Rich hasn't provided owners with much reason for optimism. While there was talk that the Colts would make a better effort to get him the ball more, the effort has yet to translate to fantasy production that justifies his first-round ADP.
Things won't get any easier for Richardson this week as the Cardinals boast a top-ten run defense. At this point, Donald Brown simply makes a marginally better fantasy play. Richardson hasn't top 60 yards rushing in any game this season. He will be a weak flex option in Week 12 and owners should see what other options are available.
