Raiders | Trent Richardson drops weight

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 10:38:45 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson lost some weight this offseason and showed some quickness during offseason workouts, according to offensive line coach Mike Tice.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson been a bit of a disappointment since entering the league but will look to play well for the Raiders. He probably will not start this season but should receive some carries. Richardson could be a late-round option in deeper leagues as a handcuff to Latavius Murray or depth at the position.

Raiders | Latavius Murray to compete to start

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 22:54:09 -0700

Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio said Tuesday, March 24, that he expects RB Latavius Murray and RB Trent Richardson to compete for the starting tailback job. "I think it will be a competitive situation," Del Rio said.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has just 82 career carries and two touchdowns, but he might be the player with more upside over the disappointing Richardson. It will be a situation worth monitoring in training camp and the preseason. The winner will be worthy of a spot as a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy play, while the loser of the battle will be nothing more than an RB3 kept around for fantasy depth.

Raiders | Trent Richardson to compete to start

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 11:12:02 -0700

Oakland Raiders RB Trent Richardson will be competing with RB Latavius Murray for the starting running back position this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson has been arguably the most disappointing running back in football over the last year. With Murray and Roy Helu also in the mix, Richardson's fantasy value is minimal. Murray is the favorite to start and Helu should see a lot of work on passing downs. Richardson is a roster filler on fantasy squads for now.

NFL | Trent Richardson files grievance

Fri, 13 Mar 2015 23:52:02 -0700

Free-agent RB Trent Richardson (Colts) has filed a grievance against the Indianapolis Colts over his January suspension.

Fantasy Tip: A total of over $3 million hangs in the balance with Richardson, who should be avoided at all costs in fantasy leagues even if he signs with another team. Richardson hasn't proven himself on the field with two teams now.

Colts | Trent Richardson released by Indy

Thu, 12 Mar 2015 14:16:29 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson was released Thursday, March 12.

Fantasy Tip: It was only a matter of time. The Colts recently signed Frank Gore and Richardson was at odds with Indianapolis anyway. Richardson should be considered no more than a flex play no matter where he plays next until he can get back on track.

Colts | Trent Richardson, Indy at odds

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 19:47:30 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson missed the team's walkthrough and flight for the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots. He was suspended two games without pay for not contacting the team prior to his absence. However, sources said his absence was due to serious complications with his girlfriend's pregnancy that could potentially have endangered the life of the child. Richardson rushed her to the hospital Jan. 17, the same day the team left for New England.

Fantasy Tip: It is uncertain how this situation will play out, if Richardson might be cut or if his suspension might be reduced or cut out completely. His fantasy outlook is also murky, but a change of scenery might do him some good at this point.

Colts | Trent Richardson critiqued by Patriot

Tue, 10 Feb 2015 16:34:56 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson needs to be more decisive when he runs, according to New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount. Blount said Richardson needs to find the creases his offensive line gives him and use his size to his advantage.

Fantasy Tip: Much has been made of Richardson's relatively lackadaisical play style as he has fallen out of favor with the Colts. At this juncture, Richardson doesn't possess a whole lot of fantasy value unless he can really turn things around.

Colts | Indy unhappy with Trent Richardson

Mon, 09 Feb 2015 10:29:23 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson developed a rocky relationship with the team last year, and the tension built up over the season because of weight issues, accessibility and an absence, according to multiple sources. Richardson was suspended two games for missing a walk-through. Richardson started the year at 225 pounds, but he ballooned up to 240 pounds later in the year, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: It's amazing how quickly T-Rich fell out of favor with the Colts last year. After the injury to Ahmad Bradshaw, Daniel Herron quickly outplayed Richardson and took the starting job. There's a good chance the Colts will look to cut him in the offseason, and even if he remains in Indy, we don't see much fantasy value to be had on draft day.
