2013 Fantasy Football Profile: Daryl Richardson Has Tons of Upside
Name: Daryl Richardson
Team: St. Louis Rams
Position: Running Back
Years Pro: 1
Draft stock: (Rising) St. Louis officials recently called Richardson the most likely candidate to reel in the team’s starting running back spot this fall. Everyone loves a sleeper and despite a mediocre rookie season, most are forecasting Richardson to be one of the better second-year backs in the NFL. Therefore, his draft stock is skyrocketing.
2012 fantasy impact: Stephen Jackson is arguably the best player in Rams’ history. However, his last season with St. Louis was average and the franchise insisted on padding his statistics while Richardson mostly sat and watched. Now, Jackson is out of town and Richardson is looking to improve upon a 2012 that saw him fumble three times and rush for a measly 475 yards — Richardson didn’t touch the end zone in his rookie campaign.
Best-case scenario: D-Rich wins starting job and becomes every-down back. Rams offense comes out firing and Richardson is able to punch home seven or eight touchdowns.
Worst-case scenario: Either Zac Stacy or Isaiah Pead swoop in and demote Richardson to second or third string, thus making him obsolete. Richardson’s three fumbles from 2012 continue to be an issue and he’s benched for lack of ball security.
Where you should draft him: Richardson’s aforementioned draft stock is soaring, but you still should be able to select the second-year running back as late as the 7th round.
