Richardson had arguably his best game with the Colts in week 7 but suffered a hamstring injury. Make sure to watch his practice habits this week before inserting him into any lineups.

Denver is just 16th against fantasy tight ends, I like Gates as a TE1 this week, even on the short rest.
Richardson remains a decent flex option against the injured Steelers D.

Banged up and might sit out, but matchup is decent if he's a go.
