Trent Richardson fantasy football update: Browns RB a lone bright spot vs. Ravens

Jason Miller

With 76 yards on 5.4 YPC, T-Rich is running downhill against a tough Ravens' rushing defense.

It used to be that, unless you owned Phil Dawson, the only reason to watch the Browns if you were a fantasy football owner was to see how great the other team played. But that's changing a little bit with the emergence of Trent Richardson in his rookie season. The Crimson Tide back picks up points in bunches, often gaining a few more yards after contact.

Richardson has 76 yards in the first half against the Baltimore Ravens, and with the Browns down 14-9 thanks to two drives stalling in the red zone, the running back is one of the only good things going for Cleveland.

As long as the game is close, T-Rich will keep getting carries, and he should be well over 100 yards on the day. If the Browns can get him involved in the passing game on some wheel routes, dumps over the middle and screen passes, he'll be even more valuable, especially in PPR leagues.
