Colts RB Trent Richardson will reportedly see 10-15 touches today

Everyone in the NFL has spent the past few days wondering how many touches Colts running back Trent Richardson will handle in his first game in the blue and white. If you guessed he would see about 10-15 touches, it looks like you will be right. ESPN's Ed Werder reports that Colts coaches "plan 10-15 touches" for Richardson against the 49ers. Werder also tweets that "Richardson sat next to Andrew Luck on the team flight and watched video on iPads, went over the playsheet, audibles and kills to be ready."

Fantasy Analysis:

I have Richardson on my team, and I am going to bench him in favor of Joique Bell @JoiqueBell. Fifteen touches against the 49ers' fierce defensive front may not lead to good numbers for Richardson. He's a deep flex option, but if you're starting him, all you need is a short-yardage touchdown plunge to make the gamble worth it.
