Richards led Villa with 11 clearances and recorded an assist in a 3-2 loss to Leicester on Sunday.

Richards is Aston Villa's best defender at this point and he has some major talent that he'll need to showcase all season long. Not only has he steadied a shaky back line, he has done a nice job of attacking and opening up some things for the offense. Look for Richards to continue to start and be a sneaky cheap fantasy option for the remainder of the season. He'll look to pick up a clean sheet against West Brom next Saturday in a battle of poor offenses.

Richards took one shot (none on target) in Friday's defeat to Manchester United.

Richards, who hasn't scored since November 19, 2011, was denied a plumb goal scoring opportunity by an uncalled foul on Matteo Darmian. The foul would've given Villa a penalty shot. The 27-year-old England national was acquired by Villa this summer and has acquitted himself nicely in his first two appearances, playing the full 90 minutes both times and providing a steady hand to the at times shaky back line.

Richards signed a four-year contract with Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Richards joins on a free transfer from Manchester City having spent last season on loan with Serie A side Fiorentina. Villa struggled defensively last season after Tim Sherwood took over, and while Richards could help, it's unlikely to be a strong defensive unit next season.

Richards' contract with Manchester City expires this summer, and the player currently on loan with Fiorentina said that first-team playing time will decide where he plays in the future, according to the Daily Mail.

Richards continues to appear likely to leave Manchester City at the end of the season to gain more playing time, reports the Daily Mail.

Pablo Zabaleta has held down the full-back position over Richards. Though City have offered the England international a contract, Richards is hesitant to agree with Liverpool, West Ham, and Newcastle all interested in his services.
