Start ‘Em #3

My START OF THE WEEK for week 3 is Trent Richardson. Richardson has mostly struggled in his first two games this year, but one could say that last week was his best with the Colts.

He had 22 total touches for 95 yards. The Colts were obviously trying to get him going and I don’t think that they are going to stop anytime soon, even with the reemergence of Ahmad Bradshaw.

Normally, I would tell owners to “wait and see” before they start trusting Richardson again in their starting lineups, but in this case, I think owners need to take a hard look at him for this reason:


The Jaguars are arguably the worst team in the NFL and the Colts should be able to get a big lead early, which calls for garbage time work for Bradshaw and Richardson.

I see T-Rich getting around 20 touches again in week 3 and owners who are having RB issues (as many are) should take a hard look at putting him into their lineups.

Consider him a solid #2 RB for week 3.
