Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson was limited in Week 6. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson was fairly unproductive in Sunday's victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. In Week 6, the Browns secured their first win of 2012, but did it mostly through the air. Their star back had only 14 carries for 37 yards and no touchdowns.

He did tack on two receptions for 17 yards on top of that, but overall, Richardson failed to be a true impact player against the Bengals. Either way, he must be thrilled to have his first win as a pro.

Fantasy Analysis: The Cleveland Browns have struggled to accumulate wins this year, but have seen some real flashes of brilliance from their first-round pick. Richardson has been a strong runner, capable of really helping out this Browns team. Unfortunately on Sunday. Montario Hardesty received more carries than Richardson.

Richardson will continue to be the workhorse back in Cleveland. The team will count on him for all purpose production; running and receiving out of the backfield. Continue to start Trent Richardson in all fantasy formats.
