Trent Richardson's comfort level 'so much better' - [Full Article]

A familiar song is emanating from Indianapolis during training camp. The hook of that tune states that everything is on the up-and-up for Colts RB Trent Richardson.

This version of that now-familiar ballad comes back to the Colts' running back being more "comfortable" with the offense in his first offseason under offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton.

"The comfort level is so much better now," Richardson said, per "I know the plays and I'm not playing so tight. I'm really comfortable with the offense, and the timing with the offensive line is coming. I know all my cuts and reads before snap."

Fantasy Impact: 

The running back recently returned from a hamstring tweak that kept him out of the beginning of training camp. The health and familiarity with the game plan have the Colts once again singing the praises of 2012's No. 3 overall pick. TRich has looked good so far in camp which means a bounce-back season could prove to be a huge value for an owner who drafts him. However, Richardson's stock is climbing. We have him ranked 31st on our RB list, but his ADP of the 6th round is higher than guys ranked around him like Lamar Miller, Maurice Jones-Drew and Pierre Thomas, who can be had in the seventh round or later.
