RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Richardson has a chance to compete for more reps in 2017 after registering 21 receptions and 288 yards and one touchdown in 15 games. He really started to hit his stride at the end of the season and churned out his best performances during the playoffs, recording seven receptions for 131 yards and a touchdown during the Seahawks' two-game postseason run. With Tyler Lockett recovering from a fractured fibula and Jermaine Kearse coming off a down year, Richardson's stock is quickly rising this offseason. All that considered, the 25-year-old could be a darkhorse fantasy producer in 2017.

2016

Plagued by injuries throughout the 2015 season, Richardson appeared in just one game when he caught one ball for 40 yards on six total snaps. He ended the year on IR with a hamstring issue but figures to be ready as a full participant for training camp heading into his third season in the league. Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, and Tyler Lockett will lead the way for the Seahawks' receiving corps, but Richardson is an early favorite for the No. 4 spot if he's healthy heading into the season.

2015

Richardson largely disappointed as a rookie, though he came on late in the year, getting half of his 44 targets in the last four games. At 6-foot, 183 pounds, he was too easily jammed at the line, preventing him from capitalizing on his tremendous speed. Thanks to a torn ACL suffered in the playoffs, his speed likely won't be the same this season. Richardson won't be ready for the start of the season, likely beginning the year on the PUP list.

2014

Richardson has great speed and could become a dangerous deep threat, but he'll need to prove that his lack of size and the durability issues he had in college won't be liabilities in the NFL. With Sidney Rice's abrupt retirement, Richardson should land the No. 4 receiver job.
