Start ‘Em: Trent Richardson – RB/Browns (vs. Buffalo Bills)

Last week Richardson finally blew onto the scene in a double-digit fantasy game against the Bengals, one that saw him rip off an impressive touchdown run. This week Richardson gets the Bills who allowed at least 80 yards or two touchdown so far on the ground in their first two weeks this year. No disrespect to C.J. Spiller or Shonn Greene but Richardson is better than both and could be the first back to rip off a triple digit yardage total and multiple touchdowns in a game against the Bills. Brandon Weeden hasn’t yet proven he can beat teams with his arm so the Browns will likely rely heavily on Richardson. If he gets a ton of carries, he’s almost a cinch for a double digit fantasy day.
