Richardson could step in at left-back for this weekend's match versus Everton, with Jordan Amavi lost for the season to a knee injury.

The 31-year-old has made just three league starts this season, but his prior experience makes him a prime candidate to step in for Amavi, with no other true left-backs currently on the roster.

May 22, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson (calf) is still not training and is doubtful to play Sunday against Burnley.

The full extent of the injury is unclear, and while Richardson seems likely to miss the Premier League season finale, he may have a shot to return for the FA Cup final against Arsenal the following weekend.

April 4, 2015

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson was unable to play Saturday against Manchester United because of his calf injury, and he remains an injury doubt for Tuesday's match against QPR, manager Tim Sherwood said.

Richardson has been sidelined since playing 42 minutes against Stoke City on Feb. 21, though even a return to fitness doesn't make him much of a fantasy contributor, as he has no goals and one assist in 17 appearances.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson (calf) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Swansea City, but he could return April 5 against Manchester United.

Richardson has been sidelined since Feb. 21 against Stoke City, giving him no opportunities to show new manager Tim Sherwood what he can do. However, even when he is fully fit, he doesn't get involved in the attack nearly enough to be a decent fantasy contributor in most formats.

December 14, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson received a straight red card in the 22nd minute of Saturday's match against West Brom.

With the red card, Richardson will be suspended for Aston Villa's next three matches. He is eligible to return Jan. 1 against Crystal Palace.

November 8, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson was moved to the bench for Aston Villa's previous two matches.

Richardson began the season in the starting XI but it seems as though he's fallen out of grace with manager Paul Lambert. In fact, the 30-year-old wasn't even subbed onto the pitch during Saturday's 0-0 tie with West Ham. At this point in the season, it seems like Richardson's value has taken a major blow.

September 10, 2014

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson seems to be a staple in Aston Villa's starting XI as the first three games of the Premier League season have featured him in the midfield.

The 29-year-old is looking to revive his career at Villa Park and has done a solid job of that so far. He's not a major threat to score, but his past history denotes that he can certainly provide a small amount of scoring before his time as a Villan is over.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Richardson is a new member of Aston Villa after agreeing to terms on a two-year deal to join the club.

Richardson was a fairly limited fantasy contributor last season for the Cottagers and while he'll be able to stay in the Premier League, he doesn't get much of a value boost with Villa.
