After speculation swirled about the possibility of Richardson going under the knife for season-ending surgery on his throwing shoulder, the generally sentiment appears to be that he’ll ultimately miss the majority of his rookie season. He looks every bit the part of the high-end QB1 fantasy managers drafted him to be, but fantasy football and NFL fans alike will be forced to wait until 2024 to see the dynamic dual-threat QB back in action. At this point, it’s likely that the Colts will ride out the 2023 season with Gardner Minshew at the controls. That’s not necessarily a death sentence at all for Colts playmakers, who just watched 55 passes come off the hand of Minshew in their loss to the Jaguars in Week 6. Richardson will likely qualify as one of the strongest and most popular options at the position in fantasy football for 2024.
