Getting harder to maintain optimism; his suckage might be permanent.
An obvious injury risk, but he's still a better bet than a washed-up MJD.

Trent Richardson should see enough volume to be a solid RB2 option with RB1 upside this season and should see the biggest lanes of his career with the Colts wide array of weapons at wideout and tight end. He could turn out to be a draft day steal.
Darren McFadden is still a very talented running back with RB1 skills but is a perennial injury risk who will be in a time-share with Maurice Jones-Drew leaving him as an upside RB3 option.
  
Jon Collins

No competition and a year to learn the playbook, I'm actually buying the '3 down back' speak the Colts are putting out there.

Now that Vic Ballard is lost for the season to a torn ACL, T-Rich has one less back to worry about during camp. His main competition is veteran Ahmad Bradshaw who, if healthy, is a talented capable runner.
He'll be back in Oakland on a one-year deal but will be battling veteran stud MJD for playing time.

Trent Richardson was as disappointing as any fantasy player in the NFL in 2013, but he is in a great offense and with Donald Brown in San Diego, Richardson will have every chance to rebound in 2014.
McFadden surprisingly signed a one-year contract to stay in Oakland. He was limited to 114 carries for 379 yards and five touchdowns in a contract year. He is likely to be the backup to MJD, but it remains to be seen how that timeshare ends up being split.

Do you like to gamble for a player with upside? Richardson had a horrible 2013, but I would love to gamble on Richardson as an RB with only Ballard and Bradshaw behind him.
With MJD in the house he will lose most of his upside. He has a lot to prove this year and he could be a RB with upside. He is still a gamble of a pick so make sure he is not one of your starters until he can prove he is worthy.

I have lost all faith in Trent Richardson.
McFadden still has talent and upside. He's never healthy and MJD is a problem, though.

Richardson will be given a short leash in INDI this season. Both fantasy owners and the Colts organization are grabbing anything they can to point the blame at Richardson’s awful 2013 performance. Ironically, Indi has shifted media attention from Richardson lacking instinct to him not being completely comfortable or understanding the offense after being traded. Pagano said he wants a “bellcow” back this year in Indi as Richardson looks to reclaim his 3rd overall pick value. Indi has casted early support on Richardson and he will get every opportunity to produce. Consider Richardson a RB3 in 2014.
