The rib injury doesn't seem like it will keep T-Rich from suiting up against a terrible run defense. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson told reporters that he is pain-free and "ready for Sunday." Richardson was listed as day-to-day earlier after a "flank" injury in Sunday's win over the Bengals and had to come out of the game in favor of Montario Hardesty. It now appears that without any setbacks, Richardson is set to start against the Indianapolis Colts.

Fantasy Take: That's enough for me. Richardson makes a case as the number one option in all of fantasy for running backs this week, taking on a Colts team allowing five yards per carry and eight touchdowns on the ground this season in only five games. The Jets just ran for 252 yards against the Colts, what should Richardson do?
