I'm not saying entirely new things that haven't been said already, so I'll go bullet point style:

1) First of all, trading up for Richardson last year was idiotic. The expression lipstick on a pig comes to mind. To justify that pick, that RB has to be Adrian Peterson. Which brings me to my next point:

2) I don't think Trent Richardson is Adrian Peterson. He might've been considered the best prospect since Adrian Peterson, but he's not on the same level. Peterson has not been in a situation that much worse than Trent's, and look what he's done. Which brings me to my next point:

3) YPC is not a great indicator, but people bring it up. So yeah, he's got a 3.6 ypc. Yes, all defenses "stack the box" for him. But again, if you're going to take a guy in the top 5 of a draft, I don't want to then hear a year later that he isn't producing because the rest of your team sucks so bad. NO SHIT your team sucks so bad, that's why you're drafting in the top 5 of the draft. If he can't create or elevate your offense at least a little bit, then he was a bad pick (refer to #1).

4) I like it for the Colts. They still lack some quality players at a lot of positions, but they've made a lot of progress since last year, and RB was definitely a need. I can see it for them, and if I was a Colts fan, I'd be happy.

5) I can see it for the Browns. I'm not crazy about it, but I won't kill them for it. This stinks of Lombardi. He's been a long-running guest on Bill Simmons' podcast, and this doesn't surprise me at all. He simply doesn't think RB is a premium position, so he tried to unscrew-up the pick from last year. He's who they put in charge, so this is what he's going to do. The only thing I wonder is could you not have gotten a late 1st round pick in the draft after this season, during the draft? I guess not if he got hurt or something, but it's also possible they just don't think he's that good.

I like the Belichickian boldness, and as someone who really doesn't give a shit either way (though I do have Trent in one dynasty league) I look forward to watching how it works out.

I'm reminded of CJ Spiller going to BUF at #9. That was a shocker. How do you feel about that pick? I guess there are two ways to view it:

1) Years later, Spiller is their best offensive weapon, and a big contributor to whatever success they have.

2) Years later, they still blow. And if they don't end up blowing this year, it'll be because of EJ Manuel more than CJ Spiller.

Now no one pick turns your franchise around unless it's a franchise QB, so it's not fair to demand that CJ Spiller make the Bills good if everyone around him sucks...but isn't that sorta the point? What's the point of having a good/great RB if everyone else sucks?

I had Trent in one league and I dealt him last week for a 2nd and 3rd round pick and Steven Jackson.... I have officially placed him on my bust alert list... he is getting close to earning that label. He is being outplayed by frickin Donald Brown every single week!

I thought so too... I figure SJax will probably get me as many points the rest of this year as TRich, and then in the offseason I need to make a move or possibly draft a guy. I definitely jumped ship, and took what I could get now with his value dropping each week with every pedestrian performance he puts up...

Trent Richardson Unable to Advance Out of Hotel Elevator Before Doors Close

DJ Gallo Nov 14th, 2013

Indianapolis Colts running back Trent Richardson will not play in his team’s game in Tennessee against the Titans because he has been stuck in the elevator at the team hotel all day.

“Yeah, Trent won’t be with us tonight,” confirmed head coach Chuck Pagano. “He had an issue back at the hotel, so we’ll be riding Donald Brown tonight.”

Richardson, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 draft, has struggled mightily since being traded from Cleveland to the Colts in September. In fact, in his last three games he has even regressed, averaging just 2.1 yards per carry. Teammates say his hesitancy and lack of speed peaked today when he was unable to travel the 4.5-feet from the back of the elevator out through the elevator doors and into the lobby before the doors closed on him.

Teammates Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton, who rode down from the team’s floor with Richardson, repeatedly encouraged their running back to get up a head of steam and clear the threshold. But after 11 attempts, they had to board the team’s bus to LP Field. In one last desperate attempt, Richardson pressed the “Door Open” button and made a break for it at full-speed, but got his body pinched in the doors and he fell backwards for no gain.

Colts officials refuse to say they are disappointed in Richardson’s play or in his inability to make it out of the elevator.

“He just needs to work a little more on his timing and accelerating through holes,” said Pagano. “He’s had a few openings, but he keeps running into the elevator control panel. Hopefully he can bust through soon and join us for the second half.”

Yet another game where Donald Brown just dominated Trent and made him look absolutely pedestrian by comparison. I don't know if the problem with Trent is mental or if he is still hurt to some degree, but every game that goes by where he continues to disappoint, I become just a little more convinced that he is a monumental bust... But the good news for the Colts is they have Donald Brown and apparently the reports of his demise were greatly exaggerated!

Yep, Cleveland is really looking genius right about now, they gave up a part time RB who averages less than 3 ypc and they actually got a first round pick in return!!! Cleveland has continued with a backfield of no-names that have done every bit as good of a job as Richardson did... and in Indy, Richardson has been outplayed thoroughly by a guy who almost didn't even make the team back in August...

Just not sure what the issue is. I think Trent is a "decent" power back. I will say this, during the game last night, on 4 of his attempts, he had ZERO blocking. Twice, 1 DT and 2 LB's where waiting for him. Hard to gain anything that way. It should be noted that Luck is the most hit QB in the league, the OLine is still pretty bad, but, that doesn't explain all of it. Brown was nailed for a loss a couple of times too.

Wishful thinking maybe, I know, but I'm hoping it gets better.

I don't know, I have been watching the Colts pretty intently this year since I have Luck in so many of my leagues... Brown runs behind the same line that Richardson does and the results are obviously different. Brown got no blocking several times as well, I remember a couple of no-gains and a short loss, the difference is when there was a crease Brown can actually accelerate through it. To my eyes at least, Trent Richardson looks pedestrian, he's doesn't look like a special talent, there just isn't any way around it... He should know the playbook by now, so that excuse down't hold water... It is looking like its time to bury all the "hype" that he came into the league with and accept that all he might end up being is decent power back, and not Adrian Peterson's successor...

Exacly my thought last night watching. No vision. Brown is seeing what is in front of him and squeezing through tiny holes. Trent dancing and running into walls. I kick myself every week. At least this week they got him catches. Those are a saving grace in ppr.

I don't know, but, I feel there is one more little fact that is being overlooked...

Last year, he averaged over 4.5 targets a game with CLE, the 1st 2 games this year, 5.5.

With the Colts, he has only 20 total targets, 13 of those in the last 3 games.

It may not hold any water, but it does at least appear, the more he is involved, the better he does.

Again, this may all be wishful thinking and he really is on his way to being a bust.

From a Colts fan perspective that lost a 1st for him.

What does "the better he does" mean? Those catches don't help his YPC. Mostly any monkey can catch a screen pass. The difference in the catches is the OC and Pep Hamilton is a fucking moron. So more catches will mean he gets more yards (aka, does better) but that get his past his terrible rushing ability in Cleveland and now in Indy.

What I'm saying, like some other Backs, the more he is involved, the better he gets. It's not an unheard of thing. I'm not saying it will fix it, something is still off. Whether it's him, the OLine, OC, or the system, time will tell.

As to any "monkey" can catch a screen pass, I've seen a lot of guys over the years that can't. DHB is a living example. Screen, slant, back shoulder, he can't catch it.

Also, CLE is not doing a whole lot better this year on YPC. 3.05 by their backs......so, maybe the average there wasn't all him.

Yes, Brown appears to be a much better back at this point. Again, maybe the system is tough, maybe it's the line, maybe it's him. Whatever, still think he is a better back than he is showing right now, but only time will tell.

Also doesn't mean I own him anywhere, I had already dumped him. I ended up getting him back in one league, but had to take him to get Megatron and Gronk.

Plus, read the entire post, I also said it may be wishful thinking and he is well on his way to being a bust.

We all think he should be better than he has been, but why really? Because he came into the league with more hype and fanfare and fantasy buzz than any RB in the last 4-5 years at least! It was all speculation about how he would be as a pro, right? There is not a single game I can think of at the NFL level where he has just dominated... So his elevated status as an elite back and a workhorse has all been conjecture up to this point, right? What has he actually done at the NFL level to earn that status or back it up?

All I am saying is what has to be considered at this point is that all the hype and buzz was wrong and TRich is just a decent RB who looked great because he played behind Alabama's NFL caliber OLine against less than NFL caliber defenses in college... Maybe there is nothing wrong with him, or with the Colts, or whatever... We have to consider that the hype was wrong and this is what he is, just a decent NFL RB, nothing special or elite, just serviceable at best.

Reinds me an awful lot of the Chris Johnson story. When CJwhateverK had his big time, the holes he ran through were ginormous or in at least one case I remember he went outside and NOBODY even covered him and he got an 85 yard score for free. I have no doubt Trent could crush with those perfect conditions too.

They both look like shit with anything short of perfection around them.

Bad vision and lack of whatever bag of skills that come with some of the greats. A team with no decent RB but a really good O-line should certainly be interested in their services.

He certainly had a handful of games with above average stats, but ultimately finished the season with a pathetic 3.6 ypc avg... and he never had a game where he just took over and dominated, nothing that justified the hype he came into the league with... and this season has been nothing but regression from last year... averaging a measley 3.0 ypc and just looking like nothing special...

Perhaps he can salvage things and turn it all around, we'll see... I just think the bigger question is did he ever really have what the hype suggested he did? I am leaning more and more towards no as the pedestrian efforts continue to pile up...

Trent Richardson has played 25 games in his career. Can anyone guess, out of those 25 how many games he rushed for more than 3.6 yards per carry?












Answer below













Keep going















5! 5 fucking GAMES...in his career, of over 3.6 ypc. Clev or Indy, involved in passing game or not, he's a turd sandwich and I will be avoiding his like the plague in all redraft leagues next season.

Traded him for David Wilson + two 1sts after he was traded to the Colts before he played one game for them. It may very well end up that the most valuable commodities in the trade were the picks.

I wonder how cheap he would cost in most leagues... I don't know if owners are willing to give up on him yet? I own him in one league and offered up Richardson + Witten for Gronk/Graham/Julius Thomas and was rejected by all 3 owners.

Trent Richardson Trade Will Haunt Indianapolis Colts For Years

Trent Richardson in a familiar pose this season

One of the boldest moves of the 2013 season was the decision by the Indianapolis Colts to trade their first round pick for 2014 to the Cleveland Browns, in exchange for running back Trent Richardson. Richardson had been selected with the third overall pick just a year previously, so it was a surprising move to even be suggested.

Not so much for the Browns, whose new management team had clearly decided that Richardson was not their man going forward and were looking to offload him for the maximum amount possible. More so, however, for the Colts who had already moved to bolster their running game in the offseason by acquiring free agent Ahmad Bradshaw from the New York Giants.

Added to this is the fact that the former Alabama produced a less than impressive rookie season in Cleveland, managing just 950 yards at 3.6 yards per carry. Included in this was a game in Indianapolis in which he managed just eight yards on eight carries and six other games in which he averaged less than three yards per attempt.

Based on this, why exactly did the Colts want to give up so much to trade with the Browns? The lure of having two of the top three picks from 2013 certainly does not justify the move in this case. Coming into the draft, Richardson was thought to be the most exciting runner to enter the NFL since Adrian Peterson. High praise indeed, but possibly deserved after his final year in college football. In 2011 with the Crimson Tide he totalled 1740 yards and 21 touchdowns on the ground at 129.2 yards per game and averaged 5.8 yards per carry throughput his collegiate career.

If he can live up to this potential, the Colts will feel that they have picked up a bargain. Yet his form this season suggests that, rather than improving, Richardson is already a player in decline. In just eight games in Indianapolis he has seen his involvement and production decrease markedly and rapidly, highlighting an increasing lack of faith in his ability from the coaching staff.

The high point of his Colts career undoubtedly came on his first carry, which resulted in a touchdown against the 49ers. Since then he has failed to produce time and again. Totalling a mere 377 yards through week 10 (of which 105 came in his two games with Cleveland), his last three games have seen just 21 carries for 44 yards. Against the Rams he was held to two yards on five carries. This is the form not of a potential franchise running back, but the form of a player who needs to be cut.

Since Bradshaw’s injury, Donald Brown has been far more productive and shown what Richardson could be achieving. His 323 total rushing yards have come at 5.9 yards per attempt and given Andrew Luck at least a creditable running option to avoid defences sitting back and playing the pass almost exclusively.

The Colts have invested too much in Richardson to give up on him already. However his lack of production is a serious worry for the organisation and the fans as they try to provide Luck with the pieces required to push the franchise into genuine Super Bowl contention.

They will be hampered in that goal by their lack of a first round pick in 2014, thanks to this trade. Therefore Richardson threatens to be a millstone around the neck of the Colts moving forward for two reasons; both his lack of production and the difficulty of drafting new talent due to a reduced number of picks.

Colts fans, players and management are placing their faith in Luck; his success could well depend on whether (or how quickly) he can overcome the massive hindrance that Richardson’s trade has placed on the team. It could well prove to be a decision that is still regretted several years into the future. If they had their time again I very much doubt that the Colts would make the same trade. But then again, hindsight is always 20-20!
I agree with this, I actually do. The only bright spot that will help the Colts is all the young players they got on Offense the last couple of years. They will overcome it I think, maybe he even gets better, (crossing fingers) they need some OLine help and hopefully they can get that!

Agreed, they need the OLine help because Luck is the most hit QB.

Perhaps it's too early but it seems to be looking more and more like Eddie Lacy really might have been the best RB prospect to come out of Alabame in recent history. More than a few scouts were suggesting that prior to the draft, but then Lacy had the injury, missed the combine and didn't have his best performance at his pro day, etc, and his stock dipped and the talk of being the best prospect from Alabama got dismissed a little bit...

Perhaps Richardson can turn it around yet, but Lacy has been producing from the start in Green Bay, even with Rogers out recently and against 8 man boxes... just sayin...

I wouldn't say he's a bust. I think he could make a pretty decent fullback one day. LAWL.

@MikeSilver reports that #Colts are demoting Trent Richardson to 2nd-string in favor of Donald Brown. Among several changes for Indy

This is like one of those rom com's where the girl is single and wants to find true love and has a best male friend that she always talks to about her boy problems, then one day she starts dating the sexiest guy in town and after being in a shitty relationship realizes that...everything she wanted...was right in front of her all along....

...except that in those movies, she doesn't have to give up a 1st round pick to get the sexy bust guy.

I still think Vick Ballard can be the guy when he is back next season... Doubtful they keep the walking injury Ahmad Bradshaw... maybe TRich can turn things around for next season but that looks less and less likely with each passing week...

That THUD! sound heard on TRichs first and only carry so far in the KC playoff game was his value plummeting even further into the abyss. He managed to FUMBLE the ball without being touched. He stumbled on a cut and out came the rock. I wish my cats could cough up a hairball that easily. Sadly they don't. TRich should now be known as TPoor, cause his value has become piss poor. Lombardi the Cleveland GM is looking pretty shrewd at this point. Freed up cash, and nabbed a 1st rounder.  Shocked

Oof, that was just awful... this guy just continues to plummet and I think he has really lost his mojo out there, he is playing with zero confidence! It is safe to say that he will likely have almost no fantasy value heading into 2014...

Then, after Pagano gets through with him in the off-season, BOOM, stud.

The word Stud and Turd are only a letter and some shifting apart.

TTurd ain't worth the price of some greasy popcorn. Face it, Colts got hosed on that one.  eating popcorn
