Daryl Richardson injury update: set to start for fantasy owners Sunday

Kevin C. Cox

The Rams starting running back will be ready to go for the team's Week 3 game against the Cowboys. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

St. Louis Rams running back Daryl Richardson (foot) fully participated in the team's practice on both Thursday and Friday and is expected to start in the Rams' Week 3 game against the Dallas Cowboys. Though Richardson's talent is undeniable, the rookie running back only has 98 yards rushing through two games this season and has yet to find the end zone.

Fantasy Impact: With the exception of very deep leagues, Richardson is not yet a number one option on most fantasy rosters, although his  value is slightly higher in leagues that reward receptions. He had five catches for 45 yards in a Week 2 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Any threat of competition for touches brought forth by teammate Isaiah Pead prior to the start of the season has now disappeared, as Pead has one rushing attempt so far this season. Fantasy owners can start Richardson in their lineup as usual, albeit against a good defense in Dallas.
