Let the hype machine get rolling! Best rookie running back since Adrian Peterson. No competition for touches in Cleveland. Three-down back. Bad passing attack means plenty of runs. Yada yada yada. Time to pour some cold water on the hype. Is he 99% of Peterson or just 80% (hey, I could tell people I applied to Stanford and avoid telling them I had a 0% chance of getting in). Is plenty of touches in one of the league’s worst offenses a recipe for fantasy production? Did we mention the rookie quarterback issue? Did we mention the lack of a true number one wide receiver? Have we gotten to the fact that most of the upper tier ranked rookie running backs have flopped in recent years? Check out the rookie production of Darren McFadden, Knowshon Moreno, Beanie Wells, LeSean McCoy, Mark Ingram and Daniel Thomas. There is little doubt that Richardson has impressive size, speed and agility and should be a three-down back, perhaps as early as this season. But the issue is value. Unless Richardson produces 1,500 yards and 8-10 touchdowns, his fantasy production is not going to merit where he is being drafted, which is as a lower tier RB1.

Comment: 8/8: Richardson has experienced swelling in his left knee during camp and had a cleanup procedure performed. His injury risk is becoming a concern. Should his knee cooperate, it's safe to say Richardson will be on the field a fair amount for the Browns in 2012 including third downs. Even mediocre play at the QB position could translate into Richardson being a top-ten fantasy back.

Injury T-Rich wearing red jersey during OTAs     -- Thu Jun 5 5:45 pm --

Ballooned to 240 pounds after shoulder surgery
The red jersey Trent Richardson was wearing during OTAs last week said it all (about he looked coming off postseason shoulder surgery). Richardson said it's more of a precaution and that he hopes he’ll be allowed to take it off soon. One thing that stood out when Richardson talked was that he had ballooned up to 240 pounds because he "ate well" and was limited in what he could do cardio-wise after the surgery. He said he’s lost 15 pounds and is back down to 225. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Richardson rushed for a disappointing 505 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games with the Colts following his trade from the Cleveland Browns. The third-year back looked slow and indecisive for most of 2013, so he doesn't need anything else holding him back. He's a strong candidate for a bounce-back season, but will probably need to show 2012 form in order to be the unquestioned starter in Indy.
