Trent Richardson finds a home in Oakland-- Tue Mar 17 1:45 pm --
The Oakland Raiders will give Trent Richardson his third chance to make it in the NFL, as the team announced his signing Tuesday. Terms were not disclosed, but the former Alabama star running back will compete with Latavius Murray to be the Raiders' starting running back.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Richardson will battle for playing time with Murray and newly signed Roy Helu. It would be a shock if Richardson is anything more than a backup for Murray with Helu filling the third-down pass-catching role. For what it's worth Richardson is just 24 years old but sports a 3.3 yards per carry average for his career.
Colts waive Trent Richardson-- Thu Mar 12 7:15 pm --
Released after two seasons in Indy
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Trent Richardson's time with the Colts is over after two disappointing seasons.
The former top-five draft pick acquired in a trade with Cleveland that cost Indianapolis a first-round pick in 2013 was waived Thursday after the running back played just one snap in three playoff games last season.
FF Today's Take:Dan "Boom" Herron's emergence during the playoffs sealed Richardson's fate. Richardson's fantasy stock is now at rock bottom after being a solid fantasy asset coming into the league as a rookie.
No carries or catches for Trent Richardson -- Mon Jan 5 8:00 am --
Colts let Dan Herron carry the load
Shouldering the heaviest load of his career — the Colts sat Trent Richardson for most of Sunday's win with an illness — Dan Herron responded with 141 all-purpose yards, the most from a Colts' running back in three seasons.(Indianapolis Star)
FF Today's Take:You could see this one coming. Richardson missed practice time earlier in the week due to "illness" and while he was active on Sunday he only saw the field late in the game after Herron fumbled twice. Rookie Zurlon Tipton was the No.2 running back. Richardson is falling out of favor in Indy and can't be trusted in playoff leagues or daily formats.
