Colts Fantasy News

The goal for Colts RB Trent Richardson -- other than having him find his rhythm rushing the ball -- is to find ways to get Richardson involved in the passing game. He had a 24-yard reception in the Nov. 3 game at Houston.
The Colts are trying to get Richardson going since trading for him. He's only averaging 3.0 yards a carry in six games with the Colts this season. As a low-end first round pick in most drafts, Richardson is probably hurting a lot of fantasy seasons up to this point. It's a great matchup this week though.

Ben Tate expects to play Week 10
Tuesday, November 5, 2013, 9:55am
Less than 24 hours later, Tate was feeling the pain of his commitment.
“It hurts pretty bad, man,” Tate said.
The four broken ribs he played with left him walking lightly Monday, saying it’s “hard to breathe and laugh.”
“I like to tell jokes. … Maybe by Friday,” said Tate, who plans to play Sunday at Arizona.
It sounds pretty painful, so it may not be a bad idea to get backup RB Dennis Johnson, who could be in line for increased work especially if Arian Foster isn't able to play after leaving Sunday night's game with a back injury. Tate carried 22 times vs. Indy in Week 9 with Johnson getting eight carries.

Colts want to get T-Rich the ball 'out in space'
Friday, November 1, 2013, 5:10pm
It's been talked about on a weekly basis now, but having running back Trent Richardson find his rhythm will help ease some of the burden on Andrew Luck and the receivers. ESPN's Jeff Chadiha wrote a story Thursday about how the Colts will regret making the trade for Richardson. He's averaging 3.0 yards a carry and his long is 16 yards in five games with the Colts.
"I have to do a better job of finding ways to get Trent out in space," OC Pep Hamilton said. "I have to do a better job coming up with schemes that not only give our offensive line a chance to be successful, but of course create holes for Trent and create schemes that compliment his wealth of talent. That's one of the things that we spent time as an offensive staff looking at during the bye week."
Richardson only has two catches in five games with the Colts after catching 51 balls in 2012. It sounds as if Hamilton recognizes that he should be catching more passes, but it shouldn't take five games to realize this.
