Found September 04, 2013 on Rotowire:
Piggy-backing on Chris Liss' "non-obvious predictions" for the upcoming season, here are a few of my own: 1) Daryl Richardson wins the battle of the Richardsons Trent Richardson is everyone's fantasy darling right now, starring in NFL Network commercials about how he's going to carry you to victory, while Daryl Richardson is a guy who's an RB2 afterthought in most leagues. I'll go out on that limb though, and predict Daryl will rack up more fantasy points this season than Trent. The Ram is a better pass catcher, and Jeff Fisher knows how to get the most out of his running backs. Of course Norv Turner also has a bit of a track record when it comes to productive RBs (see: Smith, Emmitt) but Trent hasn't managed to stay healthy for more than about three weeks at a stretch yet in his brief career, and every injury seems to be to his lower body.

Browns plan on using Richardson … a lot

Trent Richardson’s role as workhorse was never in doubt. After season-ending injuries to Montario Hardesty and Dion Lewis it couldn’t be more obvious. When the Browns cut the roster to 53 on Saturday they kept Chris Ogbonnaya and Brandon Jackson as the only backup running backs. The grouping didn’t last long as Bobby Rainey (5-foot-8 212 pounds) and Dennis Johnson (5-7 196...
