Trent Richardson suffered a rib injury 4 weeks ago against the Bengals and after trying to play through it against the Colts, was ineffective and was benhed. Since then he has handled nearly 25 carries a week and has been running wild. Can he get even be better after the bye week?
Ricardson: “The bye week is going to be big for me concerning the rib injury. It hasn’t really been where I can be at 100 percent yet, so I’m waiting for that moment. Whenever my ribs do heal, it’s going to make a big difference. When they heal 100 percent – I don’t know if it will be over this bye week – but whenever they do, it’s going to be a whole ’nother Trent.”
Right now he is the 6th best RB in standard leagues and could finish near the top, especially in PPR leagues. I love Dougie Martin, but Richardson could actually be the best rookie RB in fantasy going forward.
