Recent Player News
The Denver Broncos will be without All-Pro running back Phillip Lindsay (wrist) for their season finale in Week 17 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Lindsay suffered a wrist injury, possibly a scaphoid fracture, during his team's Week 16 loss to the Oakland Raiders. He is set to go for more testing during the week, but the injury is serious enough that he will not be playing on Sunday. Lindsay will also miss the Pro Bowl and possibly some off-season practices, but he is expected to ready by the start of training camp as of now. With Lindsay sidelined, expect Royce Freeman to be the team's workhorse back in Week 17. He makes for an interesting, cheap name in DFS contests and can be started as a low-end RB2 in any season-long leagues that play through Week 17.
2 months ago: Phillip Lindsay Returning to Earth
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay turned 14 carries into 24 yards while picking up an additional 20 yards through the air on four receptions in the Broncos 17-16 loss to the Cleveland Browns Saturday night. Lindsay was bottled up all evening with his 44 scrimmage yards marking his lowest total in a game this season (excluding the ejection-shortened Week 3). He's now put up rather pedestrian numbers in back-to-back games, and appears to be returning to Earth in advance of the team's Week 16 matchup with the Oakland Raiders. The recent play is alarming, but Oakland has been one of the more generous teams to opposing RBs so Lindsay should remain in the RB2 conversation.
2 months ago: Phillip Lindsay Quiet in Loss
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay picked up 30 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries while adding another 21 yards on four receptions in the Broncos 20-14 loss to the 49ers. The Broncos offensive unit continues to underperform as a whole, but Lindsay came into this game as one of the hottest RBs in the league so I wouldn't put too much stock into the quiet afternoon. Lindsay saw seven targets in the Broncos first game without wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, which is an encouraging sign for his prospects down the stretch in PPR leagues, and he'll look to bounce back in Week 15 when the Broncos welcome the Browns.
2 months ago: Phillip Lindsay Seeking Third-Straight 100-Yard Rushing Day
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay is seeking his third-straight 100-plus yard rushing performance after amassing 267 rushing yards over the Broncos last two games. Lindsay has been one of the biggest surprises this season, and while the 49ers have allowed just one back to rush for more than 70 yards on the season (Melvin Gordon - 104 yards in Week 4), he's simply running too hot to avoid in lineups this week. Lindsay has put up an average of 111 scrimmage yards over his last six contests, leads all backs with at least 50 carries at 6.1 yards per, and should be viewed as matchup-proof until further notice.
3 months ago: Phillip Lindsay Seeking Third Straight 100-Yard Performance
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay has compiled at least 100 yards from scrimmage in two straight games and three of his last four and draws a Cincinnati Bengals squad in Week 13 who have graciously allowed opposing RBs to pick up 172 scrimmage yards per game this season (third most). He should be in all lineups in all formats.
3 months ago: Phillip Lindsay Continues Impressive Rookie Campaign
If not for Saquon Barkley, Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay would easily be the favorite for Rookie Running Back of the Year (no that's not a thing). Lindsay continued his impressive rookie campaign by turning 14 carries into 110 yards and a TD against a Steelers defense which had held opposing RBs to a lowly 75.7 rushing yards per game on 3.8 yards per carry heading into Sunday's contest. Not only did he single-handedly crush both, but he's now gone over 100 scrimmage yards in three of his last four games and is quickly ascending into the realm of the matchup-proof.
3 months ago: Phillip Lindsay Carries the Broncos to a W
The Denver Broncos scored three touchdowns against the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday. Running back Phillip Lindsay was responsible for two of them. Lindsay received just 11 carries with Royce Freeman back in action, but made the most of his touches averaging 7.2 yards per carry en route to 79 yards - he also brought in four of five targets for an additional 27 yards through the air. Week 11 marks the fourth time Lindsay has gone over 100 scrimmage yards this season -- bringing his per game average to 85.7 -- and his consistent production keeps him in the RB2 conversation heading into a tough matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 12.
3 months ago: Phillip Lindsay Draws a Tough Hand in Week 11
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay capitalized on the absence of teammate Royce Freeman in Weeks 8 and 9 -- rushing for 155 yards and a touchdown while catching five passes for 41 -- but Freeman was a full-participant in Thursday's practice - signaling the end of Lindsay's run as the man. Lindsay averaged 10.5 fantasy points per game (standard) in the seven games with Freeman in the lineup, so Freeman's return doesn't completely extinguish his value, but this Chargers defense -- which has held opposing backs to just three rushing TDs and 85.7 yards per game -- just might. Nonetheless, given his production to this point in the season (and the six teams on bye), Lindsay still finds himself in the RB2 range; he's just at the later side of the conversation.
4 months ago: Phillip Lindsay Labors Through Tough Matchup
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay picked up 60 yards on 17 carries while adding 24 yards on two receptions in the Broncos 19-17 loss to the Texans Sunday. Lindsay finished the day with a season-low 3.5 yards per carry -- as he struggled to find running lanes amid Houston's stout front -- but continues to pass the eye test and has now put up double-digit fantasy points (PPR formats) in every game this season (excluding his ejection-shortened Week 3). Royce Freeman seems likely to return following the Broncos Week 10 bye, but Lindsay has proven effective -- both on the ground and through the air -- and should remain a RB2/flex option despite the inevitable return of the committee.
4 months ago: Phillip Lindsay Remains First in Line to See the Bulk of Carries
Denver Broncos running back Royce Freeman has yet to practice with the team this week and appears unlikely to suit up for the team's Week 9 matchup against the Houston Texans, opening the door for running back Phillip Lindsay to see the bulk of the carries for the second straight week. Lindsay has been highly productive this season while making his case for waiver wire MVP consideration. However, the Texans will present one of his stiffest tests yet as they head into this matchup holding opposing backs to 3.6 yards per carry (sixth-fewest) and the ninth-fewest scrimmage yards at 119.25 per game, limiting Lindsay to the RB2 realm.
4 months ago: Phillip Lindsay is Still Very Good at Football
Many expected Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay to shine in the absence of fellow RB-mate Royce Freeman. He didn't disappoint. Lindsay's performance wasn't quite enough to lead the Broncos to a victory Sunday, but he picked up 95 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries while adding an additional 17 yards on three receptions - leaving his fantasy owners to wonder... What if? How long Freeman is out remains to be seen, but the Broncos will face a stout Texans run defense in Week 9 which limits Lindsay's appeal - regardless of Freeman's status.
4 months ago: Phillip Lindsay Approaching RB1 Territory
The only thing that's been holding back Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay this season is the presence of Royce Freeman. Well, the latter has been ruled out for this Week 8 matchup against the Chiefs with a high ankle sprain - opening the door for Lindsay to have a big day for the Broncos and his fantasy owners. Kansas City has allowed opposing backs to pick up 5.1 yards per carry, 101.3 yards and 25 fantasy points per game (all rank in the Top-10 allowed) and with Lindsay likely to see the bulk of the carries Sunday, he could very well be in for the best game of his young career.
4 months ago: Phillip Lindsay Scores On Thursday Night
Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay finished with 90 yards and a touchdown off of 14 carries in the win over the Cardinals on Thursday night. The Broncos continued to implore the committee approach as fellow back Royce Freeman also received 13 carries of his own with this setup likely continuing moving forward with Lindsay being the more favored fantasy option between the two. The team will get a week off before meeting the Chiefs in Week 9.
4 months ago: Phillip Lindsay Cracks Top-20
Having put up at least 75 yards from scrimmage in four of his six games this season, Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay quietly ranks among the Top-20 RBs in terms of scrimmage yards per game (including the ejection-shortened Week 3). Meanwhile, the Cardinals have allowed opposing RBs to pick up 138.8 rushing yards per game on 4.5 yards per carry while giving up an additional 57 yards through the air - all of which rank among the dregs of the league. He doesn't see the volume some of the league's elite backs see -- his 12.5 touches per game rank 32nd -- but he's averaging 14 PPR fantasy points per game (over the five games in which he played all four quarters) and shouldn't have much trouble surpassing that number this week given the matchup.
4 months 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.
4 months 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.
5 months 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.
5 months 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.
5 months 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.
5 months 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.
5 months 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).
5 months 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.
5 months 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.
5 months 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.
5 months 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.
