Colts coach Chuck Pagano said that RB Trent Richardson will be ready to roll on Sunday and we will get as much as we can out of him.
Trent Richardson has been given a new football life. The move to Indiana from Cleveland is nothing but good for him and your fantasy team. The only trouble is the first game as a Colt will be against the San Francisco 49ers who are looking to bounce back from a drubbing. Richardson will be more valuable for your fantasy team. Just not his first game in a Colts uniform.

"We will get as much as we can out of him" is certainly open to interpretation. I would be shocked if he is in much on third downs this week, especially because Ahmad Bradshaw is a capable pass-catcher and blocker. I am not convinced Richardson will ever average 20 touches per game with the Colts like he did in 18 games with the Browns, but it almost certainly won't happen this week. Even if Richardson is the primary back he faces an uphill battle at San Francisco. Overall I think Richardson is just another RB2, but if someone in your league is convinced he is a top-10 running back go ahead and sell high.

Based on the exuberance of owner Jim Irsay reporting a big move coming on Twitter before the news broke, it's no surprise Richardson will be in the backfield right away for the Colts. The fantasy value skyrockets with the Colts as their passing offense is better than Cleveland's. Defenses can't stack the box now against Richardson so he will benefit.
