Anthony Richardson Ruled Out For Week 3
9 months ago

Anthony Richardson has been ruled out of the Colts week 3 matchup against the Ravens as he recovers from a Concussion.

Anthony Richardson was having a great start to Week 2, rushing for 2 touchdowns in the first half. He exited the game in the 2nd Quarter when he slammed his head on the turf after his 2nd touchdown, and did not return. He hasn’t practiced at all this week and has been ruled out for Week 3.

 

Enter the return of Minshew-mania. Gardner Minshew will be starting in place of Richardson this Sunday against a somewhat stingy Ravens D that has allowed only 16.5 ppg through the first 2 weeks. Minshew should be left on waivers in most single QB redraft leagues, and is only a desperate streaming option in 2QB Leagues this weekend.

 

For the other Colts position players, you can expect a slight bump in production for their main Wide Receiver, Michael Pittman, who demonstrated good chemistry with Minshew last week catching 8 passes. While you shouldn’t be in a rush to start any of the other receiving weapons for the Colts this week, you canĀ  expect Zack Moss to see increased production as they won’t be able to lean on Richardson to run the ball near the goal line. If you’re a Fantasy Manager who owns Richardson, you’re quickly noticing his style of play may lead to missed time, and you should try to secure an insurance QB that you can rely on as needed throughout the rest of the season.
