Josh Richardson scored 15 points with two rebounds, four assists, and one steal against the Nets on Monday.
Richardson committed seven turnovers on Saturday but only one in Brooklyn. He shot 6-for-12 from the floor and 1-for-2 from the perimeter. Richardson is not a superstar but is definitely a key piece of the Sixers' rotation.

Josh Richardson scored 18 points in Saturday's win over the Knicks, finishing with three rebounds, four assists, two steals, a block and seven turnovers.
Contributing across the board in all countable statistics this would have been a great game for Richardson, except for the seven turnovers. He continues to be a solid contributor in defensive statistics and has seen his ball-handling duties increase, so owners should take this performance with a grain of salt.

Josh Richardson ran into a screen on Friday and injured his left elbow.
The collision looked bad but Richardson was able to return to the game on Friday. He has played 36 minutes per game over his past six games, so there will be plenty of minutes to go around if he misses time. Matisse Thybulle has seen extra run with Joel Embiid out and could see increased value if Richardson misses time. Furkan Korkmaz, James Ennis and Mike Scott could also be streaming options for points and threes.

Josh Richardson continued to pick up the scoring slack with Joel Embiid out, putting up 23 points on 8-of-19 shooting with four boards, three dimes and one trey in 36 minutes as the Sixers lost to the Pacers on the road.
Richardson's stats have been similar yet down slightly compared to last season's. This time with Joel Embiid on the shelf should see his numbers improve, though he's now gone three games without a steal, which is typically where a lot of his value has come from.

Josh Richardson led the way for the Sixers in a win over the Celtics, finishing with 29 points and seven assists on Thursday night.
Richardson was perfect from the line and made nine of his 16 shots. He's going to need to continue this run in the absence of Joel Embiid for the next couple weeks, so expect some more big lines on the way.

Josh Richardson led the Sixers in scoring in their 120-113 win over the Thunder on Monday with 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting while adding two rebounds, four assists, a steal and two 3-pointers.
Richardson was bound to get it going offensively and if you've been around here you knew that patience would be key. He was too good to continue shooting at a .303 clip like he had been the past two weeks and the upside is still there defensively.

Josh Richardson made just 2-of-10 shots from the field for seven points on Friday, but chippd in elsewhere as he added eight assists, two 3s and one steal to the box score.
Richardson can be streaky and this was one of his off nights. The 3-and-D wing will shoot himself out of tonight's funk sooner rather than later, no need to make any drastic moves.

Josh Richardson finished with 20 points, two rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer on 7-of-14 shooting in 29 minutes vs. the Pacers on Tuesday.
Richardson could've had a much bigger line if he knocked down more than just one of his six attempts from beyond the arc. He's a top-55 guy over his last four games and hopefully he'll be able to make that his floor for the rest of the season.

Josh Richardson played well in Friday's loss to the Magic, contributing across the board with 15 points (6-of-13 shooting), three rebounds, six dimes, three steals, one triple and one block.
JRich is finally playing closer to the form managers drafted him for before 2019-20 began. He needs more games like this one to drag his arrow to point in the right direction, but it's nice to see active on both ends of the floor.

Josh Richardson had a nice game in the Sixers' Christmas Day win over the Bucks, but struggled from the field hitting just 7-of-20 shots for 18 points, five boards, four assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers.
Richardson has experienced dips across the board and hasn't truly been able to get the big minutes one might expect on a shallow Sixers squad that needs his services. He needs to find a niche in the offense and start chipping in with more 3-pointers, as well as getting more minutes, if he wants to be the mid-round guy he was drafted to be. Currently, he's barely hanging on in the late rounds.

Josh Richardson was held to nine points on 4-of-11 shooting to go with two boards, three assists, a steal and two blocks on Monday.
If Richardson didn't go 0-for-4 from deep, his line would have looked much cleaner. We still like him as a fantasy swiss army knife and a prime buy-low opportunity is presenting itself here.
December 21, 2019, 10:15 pmJosh RichardsonSF, Philadelphia Sixers
Josh Richardson went 9-for-17 from the field for 21 points on Saturday, adding two rebounds, three assists and one trey in 32 minutes.
The lack of defensive stats tonight was a bit of a disappointment coming from Richardson, but the takeaway here is that his aggressiveness on the offensive end paid off – something that will hopefully, smoothen his rocky 2019-20 season moving forward. He's still a buy-low candidate at the moment.

Al Horford's recent lull continued in Friday's loss to the Mavs as he posted nine points, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer while picking up four fouls in 25 minutes.
Horford is sitting around the top-85 over his last couple of weeks, which makes this a prime buy-low opportunity considering he's about as bankable as it gets in the top-50. The same can be said for Tobias Harris, who is sitting outside the top-100 in that same span and had seven points on 3-of-11 shooting tonight. That can be said for Josh Richardson too, as he is outside the top-200 over the last fortnight and had a modest line with 10 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and two threes. Get the discounts while you can.

Josh Richardson looked ramped up to full speed in Philadelphia's 104-108 loss to Miami, finishing with 17 points (6-of-17 shooting), five rebounds, six assists, three triples and a block in 37 minutes.
The 17 shots to get 17 points obviously isn't great, but the real news of this one is that Richardson was able to ramp up to a full starter's load in his fifth game back from his six-game absence. He hurt his wrist in his last game against the Celtics, so that could have led to this wonky shooting line, so hopefully that heals up for him soon. This work load relegated Matisse Thybulle (five points, three steals, one block) to just seeing 14 minutes off the bench, seriously dampening the hopes of those who thought he could get up to a mid-20 minute role consistantly.

Josh Richardson relayed that his hamstring feels fine after it caused him to miss six games, but he hurt his wrist against the Celtics last Thursday.
Richardson has been able to play through the injury the past two games, but it hasn't done him any favors as he has shot 9-of-25 from the field. It doesn't seem as though Richardson will miss any time due to the wrist, so continue to plug him in your lineups as he gets over the issue. Richardson makes for a buy-low target right now.
