TRICH gets his 10th shot to be the starting RB we all want him to be. Hopefully for at least one week against a suspect Jaguars defense he can get it done.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Richardson has a great matchup against the 23rd ranked fantasy running back defense of the Jaguars, but it remains to be seen if he can handle the starting load in the absence of RB Ahmad Bradshaw.
The Rams are 9th against fantasy tight ends and the Chargers passing game is struggling. Gates is a borderline TE1 with little upside on a struggling offense.
