Colts RB Trent Richardson to have first shot at starting job


Colts RB Trent Richardson to have first shot at starting job

ESPN's Mike Wells reports that Colts RB Trent Richardson is first in line to win the starting RB job in Indianapolis. Richardson will compete against fellow RBs Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard @VickBallard for the top roster spot. According to Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton, "(Richardson's) one of those guys that has benefitted tremendously from the extra classroom time."

Fantasy Analysis:

Richardson had an extremely tough first year in Indianapolis, averaging just 2.9 yards per carry. The former No. 3 pick joined the Colts in the middle of the 2013 season, putting him behind the curve in learning the team's playbook. He also saw more than his share of stacked defensive boxes, and ran behind a below-average offensive line. Richardson will look to turn things around when the Colts head to training camp on July 23.
