Broncos' Phillip Lindsay: Completely neutralized in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindsay managed only 24 yards on 14 carries, adding four receptions for 20 yards during Saturday's 17-16 loss to Cleveland.

After rattling off six consecutive performances of 60 or more rushing yards between Weeks 7 and 13, Lindsay has managed a meager 54 yards on 28 attempts over his past two outings. The undrafted rookie phenom averaged a jaw-dropping 6.1 yards per carry through his first 12 NFL games, but San Francisco and Cleveland have contained him to fewer than 2.0 YPC with one total touchdown (five scores in three games prior). He's bailed out fantasy owners somewhat with four receptions in back-to-back showings, but Lindsay isn't providing the same electrifying production as he was for the majority of 2018 (60-plus rushing yards or a touchdown in nine of his past 10 appearances prior to Saturday night's disappointing outing). In Week 16, he and an all but eliminated Broncos squad will travel to take on Oakland's 31st-ranked rush defense.

Broncos' Phillip Lindsay: Tough sledding on ground
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Outside of a nifty three-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.

Broncos' Phillip Lindsay: Sparks win with 159 total yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindsay rushed for 157 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries and added a 2-yard catch during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Bengals.

A huge chunk of Lindsay's production came on a 65-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Lindsay turned the corner on a toss play, set up an Emmanuel Sanders crack block and then followed tackle Garett Bolles on his way to paydirt. Lindsay has been the Broncos' single best offensive weapon during their three-game winning streak following the bye. Granted, quarterback Case Keenum hasn't been lighting it up, but the Broncos have been better off running Lindsay than throwing it: Lindsay is averaging 7.9 yards per run during the three-game stretch as compared to Keenum's 6.8 yards per attempt. Meanwhile, the undrafted rookie has also accounted for five of Denver's eight offensive touchdowns since the bye. Next Sunday brings the challenge of a San Francisco run defense that has been solid this season, giving up just 4.0 yards per carry -- the eighth-best mark in the league.

Broncos' Phillip Lindsay: Breaks century mark in Week 12 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindsay registered 110 rushing yards and a touchdown on 14 carries during Sunday's 24-17 win against the Steelers.

The rookie running back has come close on two occasions (90-plus rushing yards in Week 7 and Week 8), but Sunday's 110-yard outing against Pittsburgh was his first time breaking the century mark on the ground since picking up 107 against Oakland on Sept. 16. Lindsay offers minimal value as a pass catcher (2.2 catches and 17 receiving yards per game), but his otherworldly 5.8 yards per carry average and six rushing touchdowns have helped establish the undrafted phenom as a mid-range RB2. Week 13 presents a magnificent matchup, going up against a Cincinnati defense that's allowed the fourth-most rushing yards (1,292) and the fifth-most rushing touchdowns (11) to opposing running backs in 2018.

Broncos' Phillip Lindsay: Scores twice in upset win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lindsay rushed for 79 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries and added four receptions for 27 yards on five targets Sunday in the Broncos' 23-22 win over the Chargers.

Immediately after punter Colby Waldman completed a 12-yard pass on a fake punt to keep a drive alive early in the second quarter, Lindsay helped the Broncos maintain momentum with a 41-yard touchdown jaunt. The rookie scored again in the fourth quarter to give Denver a short-lived lead, though he didn't see any touches on the team's final drive of the afternoon, which culminated in Brandon McManus' game-winning field goal. In any event, it was yet another efficient outing for the undrafted rookie, who has averaged at least 4.5 yards per carry in all but one of his 10 outings this season. That incredible consistency on the ground in addition to his exploits as a pass catcher should continue to make Lindsay the top option in Denver's backfield committee. Lindsay once again led the way in offensive snap share, taking the field for 32 of 56 plays (57 percent) while Royce Freeman (13 snaps) -- who returned from a two-game absence due to an ankle injury -- and Devontae Booker (11 snaps) were both under 25 percent.
