Recent Player News

11 hours ago: Phillip Lindsay Sees More Work In Passing Game
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay saw a career-high seven targets in the Broncos loss Sunday -- second on the team to Emmanuel Sanders' 10 -- bringing in six passes for 48 yards through the air. He also added 18 yards on the ground with his four carries. Not the biggest day from the fantasy perspective, but the work in the passing game has to be encouraging for his owners in PPR formats. Up next is a Thursday Night Football date with the Cardinals - who have been one of the league's worst at containing opposing RBs.

3 days ago: Phillip Lindsay Seeking Fourth Double-Digit Fantasy Performance
Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh says the Rams run defense has been "Terrible, without question..." That is great news for Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay, as Denver's backs have attempted the eighth most rushing attempts, with his 5.75 yards per carry being good for 10th among RBs this season. Fellow RB mate Royce Freeman limits his weekly upside, but Lindsay has still managed to average 78.6 yards from scrimmage (including the ejection-shortened Week 3) and seeing how the Rams have allowed opposing RBs to pick up 4.9 yards per carry, he shouldn't have much trouble putting up double-digit fantasy points for the fourth time this season - making him a solid RB2 play.

8 days ago: Phillip Lindsay Remains Productive in Week 5
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay rushed 12 times for 61 yards while adding three catches for 20 yards in the Broncos 34-16 loss to the Jets Sunday. A touchdown would have been nice but Lindsay has now put up at least 75 yards from scrimmage in every game this season (excluding his ejection-shortened Week 3) and continues to prove his RB2 staying power.

10 days ago: Phillip Lindsay a Flex Option Week 5
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay is a victim of circumstance. Clearly an extremely gifted back, Lindsay just so happens to share the backfield with another talented rookie in Royce Freeman - each eating into the other's fantasy value. The Broncos draw a Jets defense in Week 5 which has been middle of the pack in terms of fantasy points allowed to opposing RBs but has also held opposing RBs to just 3.47 yards per carry this season (fourth-fewest). Combine the deceptive matchup with Broncos head coach Vance Joseph indicating that Freeman has earned the opportunity to see more carries, and you have to consider Lindsay a flex option this week.

14 days ago: Phillip Lindsay Scores First Career Rushing Touchdown
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay plunged his way into the end zone late in the third quarter for the first rushing touchdown of his young career. Lindsay was once again productive on the ground -- picking 69 yards on 12 carries -- and will look to keep things rolling in Week 5 against the New York Jets.

17 days ago: Phillip Lindsay Primed to Bounce Back After Week 3 Suspension
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay couldn't ask for a better matchup to erase the memory of his Week 3 suspension than the one he draws this week - at home, in prime time, against a defense which has allowed opposing RBs to pick up 5.1 yards per carry. The Titans were the only team whose backs had more rushing attempts than the Broncos by the conclusion of Week 3, and if Denver wants to keep Patrick Mahomes and co. at bay Monday night, they'll be best served keeping them on the sidelines by running the ball early, and often. You can expect Lindsay to see quite a few touches in this one (scoreboard willing) making him a solid RB2 play.

19 days ago: Phillip Lindsay Won't Face Suspension After Week 3 Ejection
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay will not face a suspension after being ejected from the team's Week 3 matchup with the Ravens for what the referees deemed to be throwing a punch. The second-quarter ejection was unfortunate for both Lindsay and fantasy owners who had him in their lineups alike -- Lindsay had just four carries for 20 yards prior to being tossed -- but he should be able to find redemption Monday night as the Broncos take on a Chiefs defense which has allowed opposing RBs to pick up 5.09 yards per carry (third most), 105 receiving yards per game (most) and 29.2 fantasy points per game (second most).

22 days ago: Phillip Lindsay Ejected In Week 3
Denver Broncos rookie running back Phillip Lindsay was ejected in Week 3 against the Ravens for throwing punches during a scrum. Lindsay had four carries for 20 yards and didn't record a catch before leaving. It becomes a frustrating day for his fantasy owners if they started him, but the long-term future looks bright for Lindsay, and he's been a flex play so far to open the season. In his absence the rest of the way on Sunday, Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker should split the backfield workload.

29 days ago: Phillip Lindsay Records First 100-Yard Rushing Day of Career
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay rushed for 107 yards on 14 carries Sunday afternoon in Denver's 20-19 victory over the Raiders, becoming the first undrafted player in NFL history with 100-plus scrimmage yards in each of his first two games. Lindsay's 14 carries paced all Broncos RBs, and his 15 touches were more than the 11 fellow RBs Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker received combined. Lindsay looks to be the back to own in Denver at the moment, and if he's still available on your waiver wire, consider yourself blessed and change that immediately.

1 month ago: Phillip Lindsay Should Be Fine To Play
Denver Broncos rookie running back Phillip Lindsay (knee) practiced in full for the second straight day on Friday, indicating that he should be fine to play for Week 2 against the Raiders. Alongside fellow rookie Royce Freeman, Lindsay was the more impressive back in the season opener, running 15 times for 71 yards and catching two passes for 31 yards and a score. He won't always outshine Freeman every week, but Lindsay is on the RB3/flex radar in a good matchup against Oakland at home on Sunday.

1 month ago: Phillip Lindsay a Solid Flex Option in Week 2
We're not one to overreact based on one game, but you didn't spend 25 percent (maybe more) of your FAAB on Denver Broncos rookie running back Phillip Lindsay to watch him ball out on your bench, did you? After leading all Broncos RBs in touches Sunday against the Seahawks, Lindsay draws a Raiders defense which allowed 5.38 yards per carry to Rams backs on Monday night -- the second highest average allowed to RBs in Week 1 -- while giving up an additional 57 yards through the air (ninth most). Lindsay led all Broncos backs with three targets Sunday, bringing in two catches for 31 yards and a touchdown, and figures to be heavily involved again here both on the ground and through the air.
