Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay gained 36 yards on 13 carries against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Sept. 15. He also had four receptions for 30 yards.
Huddle Up: Lindsay has taken a back seat to Royce Freeman in terms of production thus far, but he's still getting the touches. Look for that split to continue and consider penciling Lindsay in as your flex or third back.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay had 11 carries for 43 yards in Week 1 against the Oakland Raiders and he added four catches for 23 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: Lindsay was outgained by Royce Freeman on the ground, and you can expect these two to battle for backfield touches well into the regular season. Both are decent RB3 or flex fantasy options heading into Week 2 against Chicago.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay might get more touches as a receiver out of the backfield, offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello hinted Sunday, July 21. He was seen splitting out wide and matching up against various linebackers during 11-on-11 drills.
Huddle Up: Lindsay had 12.8 carries and 2.3 receptions per game last season, totaling 1,037 rushing yards and 241 receiving yards in 2018. If he is able to add to his receiving numbers, his fantasy value obviously improves, especially in PPR formats. Monitor the situation during training camp and the preseason.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) participated in the first offensive rep of training camp Thursday, July 18, and received the handoff on a rushing play. Lindsay didn't take a single handoff all offseason after undergoing wrist surgery this past winter.
Huddle Up: A healthier Royce Freeman will also see plenty of work in the Broncos' backfield, but Lindsay is expected to be the main man in the timeshare. Value him as a low-end RB2.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) is ready for the start of training camp but will be eased back into practice during the early portion of camp.
Huddle Up: Lindsay is on track for the start of the regular season and could see some playing time in the preseason. He is expected to be the lead running back in 2019 after a terrific 2018 season. Lindsay can be at least a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) should be ready for the start of training camp, according to head coach Vic Fangio.
Huddle Up: Lindsay took over the starting job last season and should continue to receive a majority of the touches at running back. He can be considered at least a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues in 2019.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) has been able to participate in individual drills during OTAs but has not yet been cleared to catch passes.
Huddle Up: Lindsay is coming off an excellent rookie year, and he should enter the season as Denver's top back. As long as he is 100 percent by the time Week 1 rolls around, he should deliver RB2 production.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) is at the team's minicamp, but either doing side field work or no work at all. 'He's still under the medical people's orders. He's fine, but he can't just twist (the wrist) right now,' head coach Vic Fangio said Tuesday, April 16.
Huddle Up: Lindsay had a few months to get himself back to 100 percent. He came out of nowhere last season as an undrafted rookie to emerge as a must-start fantasy option. The former Colorado State product won't sneak up on anyone this season. Assuming he is fully healthy he will be a solid low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in 2019.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) might be able to return for organized team activities (OTAs) in May/June, general manager John Elway suggested. However, Lindsay said Wednesday, April 3 that he would not pin an exact date on his comeback. 'For me, I put no time limit on my injury right now,' Lindsay said. 'When I'm ready, I'm going to be ready.'
Huddle Up: Lindsay posted 1,278 combined total yards rushing and receiving with 10 touchdowns in his rookie season of 2018, and he will enter 2019 as a must-start fantasy option. Whether or not he participates in OTAs or not, it sounds like he'll be more than ready for training camp and the preseason.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) is unlikely to be ready for the team's draft-week bonus minicamp as he recovers from wrist surgery, head coach Vic Fangio said Sunday, March 24.
Huddle Up: No real worries at the moment as this has been the planned recovery time all along. As long as Lindsay is cleared to go for most of training camp, he'll remain a RB2 draft consideration.
