If Denard Robinson can take advantage of the Browns defense, surely DMC can as well right? Yeah, I'm not so sure either which is why he's in the FLEX consideration for us.
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.
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
Averaging 15 touches per game, McFadden draws a matchup against the 4th most generous RB fantasy defense this week.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Browns allow the 5th most points to fantasy running backs, McFadden is a good gamble at the flex this week.
Richardson remains a decent flex option against the injured Steelers D.
