Sheldon Richardson released by Cleveland Friday

The Cleveland Browns released DT Sheldon Richardson on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

This comes just two days after Cleveland signed Jadeveon Clowney. Richardson was due $12 million this year. We will wait and see what teams display interest in Richardson as a free agent.

Sheldon Richardson records his first two sacks of the year

Sheldon Richardson logged five total tackles, one TFL, two sacks, two QB hits, one pass defended, and one forced fumble, as the Browns topped the Dolphins 41-24.

Fantasy Impact

Richardson exploded against Miami on a day the team was missing Myles Garrett and Larry Ogunjobi to suspension and Olivier Vernon to a knee injury. However, their absences were made irrelevant by Richardson's outstanding play and Miami's inability to block. Richardson will try to help the Browns get their fourth straight win against the Steelers next week.

Sheldon Richardson signs with Browns

The Browns have signed DT Sheldon Richardson to a three-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

Richardson, formerly with the Vikings, gives Cleveland another solid piece in the middle to play beside Larry Ogunjobi. Cleveland's defense showed flashes in 2018 and is a favorite to take a big step forward in 2019 ala the Jaguars in 2017.

Sheldon Richardson continues to do nothing

Sheldon Richardson recorded one solo tackle and one assisted tackle in the Minnesota Vikings' Week 7 win over the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact

Richardson has a total of 22 tackles and one sack through almost half a season with the Vikings. He's been a huge disappointment.

Sheldon Richardson signs with Vikings

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Vikings are signing defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact

The Vikings defense was already among the best in football, though this signing takes it up another notch. Richardson will add a piece to the defensive line that is expected to lose defensive tackle Tom Johnson in free agency. Playing in a division against Aaron Rodgers, Matthew Stafford, and Mitchell Trubisky, the addition of Richardson should create much-needed pressure up the middle. He only recorded one sack in 2017, but he had 28 quarterback hurries which tied for seventh among defensive tackles. While we don't advocate drafting defenses outside of your final draft pick in fantasy football, the Vikings make a strong case to maybe snag them a round or two before your final pick.
