Bernard has a tough matchup against the Ravens 3rd ranked fantasy running back defense, but I still think you have to start him this week.
Richardson remains a decent flex option against the injured Steelers D.

Forget about last week in Indianapolis, Gio should have a better game this week at home vs the Ravens.
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.
