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.

T-Rich making presence felt in Colts' camp     -- Thu Aug 14 5:15 pm --

Hoping from bounceback from poor 2013 season
This one probably deserves an asterisk, because at the start of camp, it seemed as though things were touch and go with Trent Richardson. He didn't practice for the first week of camp, sidelined as a precaution because of a hamstring injury suffered in pre-camp workouts. But Richardson made his presence felt after returning, running with the sort of determination and decisiveness that gives the Colts hope he can rebound from a subpar 2013 season. Richardson says he's healthier now than he was entering his two previous pro seasons, and he looks it. (Indianapolis Star)

FF Today's Take: Richardson has drawn a lot of criticism for, among other things, his inability to come anywhere close to matching Donald Brown's production last season. To his credit, he is a more than capable receiver with plenty of power. With Vick Ballard already done for the year and the injury-prone Ahmad Bradshaw as his only capable backup, Richardson may be set up for a massive workload. For that reason alone, he is a more than viable flex option.
Injury Trent Richardson dealing with hamstring issue     -- Sun Jul 27 3:10 pm --

Colts' running back not practicing
The Colts have been using the term “soft-tissue” issue when talking about why running back Trent Richardson has not been practicing in training camp. Richardson has a hamstring issue. Richardson isn’t practicing, but he has been catching passes off the Jugs machine at the conclusion of practices. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: With Vick Ballard (Achilles) out for the season, Ahmad Bradshaw has been running with first team during the early portion of training camp. Richardson's hamstring issue doesn't appear to be serious but it's something to monitor moving forward.
