Trent Richardson played on 702 offensive snaps in 2012, ninth-most among NFL running backs.

Despite undergoing a knee a scope in August, breaking 2-3 ribs in Week 6 and sitting out Week 17 due to an ankle sprain, Richardson was a workhorse. He was a true three-down and goal-line back, reaching at least 20 touches nine times and scoring 12 touchdowns. With full health, this kind of workload and creative offensive mind Rob Chudzinski now in charge, there's plenty of upside for Richardson's second NFL season.
