Trent Richardson a fantasy football dud in win Colts Week 9 win over Texans

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Surprise, surprise. Trent Richardson let down fantasy football owners again.

Indianapolis Colts running back Trent Richardson continued to struggle in Week 9, turning in another terrible fantasy football performance against the Houston Texans on Sunday Night Football.

The Colts fell behind early and spent much of the second half playing catch-up, so Richardson only carried the ball eight times, picking up a measly 20 yards in the process. He also caught two of his three targets for 33 yards, salvaging some respectability for his fantasy owners.

Fantasy spin: Richardson has been downright awful in just about every game he's played this season. Both for the Cleveland Browns and Indianapolis Colts, Richardson has struggled to find running room and hasn't been hitting holes with authority when they are open.

Going forward, Richardson is a shaky fantasy football player on a week-to-week basis. Until we see improvement from both Richardson and the guys blocking for him up front, it's impossible to trust his as any more than a flex play.
