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.
Donald Brown played well enough this year to garner a contract with San Diego in free agency, but RB Ryan Matthews is still the lead back and it remains to be seen what his role with be there with Woodhead being the third down back.
  
Tom Schriner

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.
Donald Brown has signed with the San Diego Chargers in a now muddled situation. Not sure what the Bolts are thinking but Brown is behind Mathews.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
Getting harder to maintain optimism; his suckage might be permanent.
After a strong 2013 campaign, he joins a better run-blocking team as a backup.
  
Sablich Brothers
The NY Times
Can't rank him any higher until he proves he's the man in the backfield for Indy.
Would see the early down work if Mathews goes down.

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.

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.
Donald Brown will be the early-down backup in San Diego behind Ryan Mathews and also figures to be Danny Woodhead’s backup as the third down back meaning he will be fantasy relevant if either runner suffers an injury this season.
  
James Hatfield
Hatty Waiver Wire Guru
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.
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
I have lost all faith in Trent Richardson.
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
No competition and a year to learn the playbook, I'm actually buying the '3 down back' speak the Colts are putting out there.
