Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson says he "feels great" and "pain-free." He was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice yet assured the media that he is "ready to play" against the Indianapolis Colts Week 7. If Richardson does play, he will wear a flak jacket or some kind of chest protection. Barring any setbacks, Richardson looks to be a game-time decision at worst.
Richardson is playing like a Top 10 fantasy back and has lived up to the hype placed upon him before the 2012 NFL Draft. He's scored a touchdown in four of his six games and he's catching passes out of the backfield which has helped off-set some mediocre rushing totals. The former Bama standout has a great matchup against the Colts. Indy has allowed 846 total yards and eight TDs to RBs. Add it all up and that's 26.5 fantasy points per game. Needless ot say, if Richardson plays, he's a must-start. If he doesn't play, definitely add Montario Hardesty to your roster.
