Phillip Lindsay
24-Year-Old Running BackRB
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Lindsay collected 4,859 total yards and 39 touchdowns at Colorado and ran a 4.39 40-yard dash at his pro day. He still didn't get an invite to the Combine or hear his name called on draft weekend. Early on, he seems like a good bet to add to Denver's legacy of undrafted free agents. He should get his first taste of action as a kick returner, but his speed and receiving ability adds a unique element to Denver's backfield. Read Past Outlooks

Tough sledding on ground
RBDenver Broncos
December 9, 2018
Lindsay rushed 14 times for 30 yards and a touchdown and brought in four of seven targets for 21 yards in the Broncos' 20-14 loss to the 49ers on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Outside of a nifty 3-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, Lindsay struggled to do anything on the ground against a stingy 49ers front. The rookie was coming off a pair of 100-yard efforts, so the decline in production was steep and sudden. Lindsay does have at least one rushing touchdown in four consecutive games, so he continues to reward fantasy owners even on days like Sunday when his overall yardage totals take a hit. Lindsay will look to get his numbers back up to their usual levels against the Browns in a Week 15 Saturday night matchup.
