Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Saturday, July 26, because of a soft tissue issue, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Pagano said the team is being careful with Richardson and want him to be 100 percent before he returns to the field.

Colts | Vick Ballard tears Achilles'

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 16:08:49 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during practice Friday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Ballard likely will miss the entire season because of the injury. Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw probably will get a majority of the reps at the position unless the team adds another back. Richardson should be considered a starting running back in all fantasy leagues, while Bradshaw probably would be a later-round pick that could be a No. 4 or 5 running back on a team.

Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson (knee) is being held out of practice Friday, July 25, as a precaution. It is believed the issue is knee related.

Fantasy Tip: This is obviously something to monitor as we get into training camp, although it does not sound like there is anything to be concerned with at this point.

Colts | Continuity could help Trent Richardson

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 18:53:50 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson should improve on his 2.9 yards per carry average in 2014, according to Kevin Bowen of Colts.com. Bowen believes Richardson will benefit from playing in the same offensive system for the second year in a row for the first time in his NFL career.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson will get the first shot at starting this season and has some upside, but with his poor play last season and Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard waiting to steal carries, he should be viewed as a low-end RB2.

Colts | Trent Richardson will need to produce

Sat, 12 Jul 2014 09:15:31 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson will need to produce right away in the running game if he wants to keep the starting job, because the team will not wait for him to turn things around if RB Ahmad Bradshaw or Vick Ballard are playing well.

Fantasy Tip: Richardson is getting the first chance to start, but he could find himself on the bench if he fails to produce. Richardson should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back in drafts this season. Owners could consider taking a late-round flier on Bradshaw or Ballard since there is a chance they could take over the starting job if Richardson falters, but it is not known which back would have more value at this point.

Colts | Trent Richardson improving via classroom

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 10:31:38 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson has greatly benefitted from extra time spent in the classroom, according to offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton. Hamilton said Richardson will be better this season after facing a tough situation following his trade to Indianapolis.

Fantasy Tip: There are high, or at least higher, expectations for Richardson in his second season with the Colts. From what's been said this offseason, it sounds like he's improving nicely. He should be the Colts' starting running back, but RBs Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard will also be involved. Richardson should be considered a low-end RB2 in standard leagues with more upside in PPR leagues.

Colts | Trent Richardson will get first chance to start

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 13:20:08 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson will be given the first shot at starting running back. He is more talented than RBs Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard, and the Colts don't want to show that their trade for him last September was a failure.

Fantasy Tip: Due to Richardson's poor 2013 season, he stands to reward nicely as an RB2. Bradshaw and Ballard are late-round fliers.

Colts | Trent Richardson to be a three-down back?

Thu, 19 Jun 2014 11:43:06 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson is using his instincts when running instead of thinking the play through, according to coaches. Richardson has a chance to be a three-down player.

Fantasy Tip: If Richardson can prove to be a three-down player, his fantasy stock will surely rise. He's currently listed as the team's No. 1 running back in front of Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard. For now, consider him a weak RB2 in standard leagues.

Colts | Trent Richardson, Ahmad Bradshaw competing for RB job

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 12:22:26 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RBs Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw wore red non-contact jerseys during organized team activities as they compete for the team's starting running back role. That battle is expected to intensify during training camp, but both will see playing time, no matter who is the official starter. Head coach Chuck Pagano has stated he wants a workhorse running back, however.

Fantasy Tip: Our money would be on Richardson to be that workhorse for the Colts. Bradshaw and Vick Ballard are coming off injuries and Richardson needs this season to prove he wasn't a trade bust. If the Colts continue to use Richardson in the passing game the way they did later on in the 2013 season, he should be a safe PPR RB3 with RB2 potential. It's best to use more caution with Bradshaw, who is currently listed as the team's No. 3 running back.
