Player Notes
Nov 16 12:50pm ET

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay compiled 92 yards and a touchdown despite receiving just nine carries in Week 9 against the Browns. The 25-year-old, who has five touchdowns on the year, continues to be relegated by the timeshare with fellow back Royce Freeman. Nonetheless, he is a sufficient option in deeper formats, but don't expect guaranteed results against the Vikings in Week 11.

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay had an efficient afternoon against the Browns on Sunday, making the most of the few reps he saw. The 2nd-year back took nine carries for 92 yards, as well as finding the end zone once during the contest. Lindsay has slowly started to change the script for what his 2019 season will be after a slow start, and this game was a statement of how efficient the young back can truly be. Lindsay and company have a week break before returning to the field in Week 11.

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (wrist) was listed as a limited practice participant on Wednesday. The Broncos are likely just giving Lindsay a breather as we approach the second half of the season, but this injury is worth watching after the 2018 breakout had offseason wrist surgery. He's been a disappointment so far in 2019 while splitting the backfield work almost evenly with Royce Freeman. Freeman has also vultured touchdowns the last two weeks. Cleveland's run defense has been suspect this year, though, so Lindsay should be seen as an RB2 this weekend with a chance to return to paydirt. Expect Denver to lean more on their ground game with Brandon Allen now taking over for Joe Flacco (neck) under center.

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay made his living this week from snagging catches out of the backfield, something that he has not done much of this season. Lindsay has been the feature back running the ball this year for the Broncos with teammate Royce Freeman handling most of the pass-catching duties. However, Lindsay snuck in five catches for 17 yards to go alongside 59 yards on the ground in Week 8 against the Colts. Owners will be thrilled if Lindsay can continue to find production in the passing game to go alongside his consistent rushing production, especially in PPR settings.

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay is coming off of a disappointing Week 7 performance against the Chiefs and the road does not lighten up as he looks to bounce back against a stout Indianapolis Colts Defense. Lindsay has continued to prove that he has the most fantasy value out of the Denver backfield, but the offense may take a dip moving forward with the loss of one of the team's top weapons, Emmanuel Sanders, over this last week. Keep an eye on if this move affects the offensive production of the team negatively but in the meantime approach Lindsay as an RB2/Flex this week. However, if the Colts scare you a great bit, feel free to bench him for alternatives.

Denver Broncos running back Phillips Lindsay couldn't get anything going against a Chiefs Defense that stepped in the wake of the injury to quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who is expected to miss some time after suffering a knee injury in the second quarter. After accumulating four touchdowns over his last four games, Lindsay finished with just 36 yards on 11 carries in this one. Though Royce Freeman managed to rush for a touchdown, expect these two to continue to split carries, with a slight edge going to Lindsay moving forward.

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay is starting to build an impressive log of games to start the year and he looks to keep the ball rolling against one of the league's worst run defenses on Thursday night. The Chiefs have been abysmal against the run, which should make Lindsay owners salivate as he has a great chance to break quite a few loose to rack up some major yardage. The sophomore back should be starting in most leagues for Week 7.

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay continued his recent hot streak on Sunday afternoon as he posted a solid game against the Tennessee Titans. The 2nd-year running back totaled 75 yards on the afternoon, most coming from the running game. He also managed to find the end zone once during the game. Lindsay has now posted over ten points in all but one game this year, in a PPR setting, and is the clear number one fantasy back in Denver. He looks to keep the hot hand next week in a divisional battle against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay has started to prove doubters wrong as he is slowly putting together a strong 2019 season. Lindsay continues to outproduce teammate Royce Freeman, although Freeman is constantly stealing reps from Lindsay out of the backfield. The sophomore back Lindsay faces a stout Tennessee Titans Defense but hopes to still put up flex numbers in his Week 6 matchup.

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay was the focal point of the Broncos offense as they got their first win of the season against the Los Angeles Chargers. Lindsay saw solid production out of the backfield, tallying 114 yards and a touchdown on 15 rushing attempts. The feature back also played a role in the passing game, hauling in all four of his targets for 33 yards. Lindsay had one of his best performances to date and shined relative to teammate Royce Freeman who had similar volume to Lindsay. The 2nd-year back has a tough Week 6 matchup against a strong Tennessee Titans Defense.

Broncos' RB Phillip Lindsay ran for 114 yards on 15 carries with one touchdown in Sunday's win in Los Angeles Chargers.

Oct 5 5:40pm ET

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay saw his worst game of the season last week against a stout Jacksonville Jaguars run defense. His team played from behind, and thus relied heavily on the passing game which may become a trend this season. The road does not get easier for Lindsay as he lines up against a strong Los Angeles Chargers rush defense who looks to once again make the Broncos offense play from behind in Week 5. To add fuel to the fire for Lindsay, he was significantly out-snapped by teammate Royce Freeman who also received a bulk of the targets out of the backfield last week. Tread lightly with Lindsay moving forward as the situation around him does not lend to high production for the sophomore back.

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay had a disappointing game on Sunday afternoon, as the entire run game struggled against a stout Jacksonville defensive line. Lindsay was the feature back for the offense for the second week in a row, as he led the team with nine carries for an efficient 53 yards. The sophomore back had little impact in the passing game and failed to find the end zone, accumulating an abysmal stat-line on the day. Lindsay and the team look to rebound in the running game in a divisional matchup against the Chargers next week.

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay posted a strong performance in Week 3, having the biggest game from a Denver running back this year. Lindsay saw 56% snap count usage, compared to his teammate Royce Freeman's 49% last week. This is one of the bigger gaps between the two in recent weeks, and Lindsay looks to keep up the high volume against a sub-par Jacksonville Jaguars rush defense, as Lindsay is a flex play in PPR this week.

Broncos' RB Phillip Lindsay scored 29.00 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 3 loss in Green Bay. Lindsay ran for 81 yards and caught four passes for 49 yards with two touchdowns.

Sep 22 11:10pm ET

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay pleased fantasy owners that gave him an opportunity in Week 3, as he managed to score two touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers. The two touchdowns were the first of the season for Lindsay, who continued to split time with teammate Royce Freeman. Lindsay got more reps than Freeman, as Lindsay had 21 carries for 81 yards compared to Freeman's 15 carries. Lindsay hopes to continue to have higher usage in Week 4 as the Broncos host the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Sep 20 1:50am ET

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay has been reduced to nearly equal snap count share with colleague Royce Freeman. That being said, it truly is a toss-up between which running back will see more production in Week 3 as they will likely receive the same volume once again. The Broncos face off with the Green Bay Packers, who have not had an overly intimidating run defense to start the year in 2019. If you absolutely need to play Lindsay in a deep league flex role, especially in PPR setting, he most likely will suffice with decent production, but don't expect anything crazy.

Sep 16 6:40am ET

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay finished with 36 yards on 13 attempts to go along with four receptions (seven targets) for 30 yards. The 25-year-old continues to split carries with fellow running back Royce Freeman, who took away 11 potential carries while eating up some targets from quarterback Joe Flacco. Until either man demonstrates a stable workload moving forward, they shouldnt be considered a reliable fantasy option. Keep an eye on this situation in the weeks ahead.

Sep 10 2:30am ET

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay was contained by the Oakland Raiders Defense on Monday evening. The sophomore back from the University of Colorado tallied 43 yards rushing on 11 attempts, alongside four receptions for 23 yards. Lindsay looked nimble on the runs he had, but was unable to get past the second level on any occasion. While Lindsay should continue to lead in volume out of the Denver backfield in an offense that looks to find a groove in Week 2, the matchup is unfavorable as the Chicago Bears make their way into Denver. Lindsay is a tough flex play with one of the leagues best defense's coming to town.

From RotoBaller

Sep 8 11:20am ET

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay may have been hurt by the Oakland Raiders decision to release Antonio Brown on Saturday. Heading into the season, the Broncos coaching staff has been adamant that there would be more of a timeshare between Lindsay and Royce Freeman. Lindsay averaged 5.4 yards per carry last year and figured to get the bulk of the work in the receiving game due to his ability as a pass-catcher. With Brown no longer on the Raiders and the team dealing with plenty of chaos, the Broncos Defense is more likely to keep the Oakland offense in check, giving the Broncos a good chance to build a lead and rotate their backs more. Lindsay still has upside as an RB3 in season-long leagues, but he should be avoided in DFS in what is possibly the most confusing matchup of the entire week.
