Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay said he was thrown off mentally last year by the signing of RB Melvin Gordon. 'This year I am going to take a different approach,' Lindsay said. 'I was in battle mode. Everything caught me off guard with my teammate Melvin coming in. You can burn yourself out like that.'
Huddle Up: Lindsay topped 1,000 rushing yards in each of his first two seasons, but the addition of Gordon and injuries limited him to 502 yards and one touchdown on the ground in 2020. Denver could chose to let Lindsay leave in free agency this offseason, but he will be handcuff to Gordon if he returns.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (knee/hip) on Saturday, Dec. 26, was placed on the Reserve/Injured list, per a source, ending his season.
Huddle Up: Lindsay's disappointing injury-filled season ends with a total of 530 scrimmage yards and one TD on 125 touches in 11 games. With his contract up this offseason, Lindsay likely has played his final game for the Broncos as well.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (hip, knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 25, and has been ruled out for Week 16.
Huddle Up: Melvin Gordon will receive most of the work at running back with Lindsay out and can be a No. 2 running back in most fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (hip, knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 24.
Huddle Up: Lindsay may be a game-time decision this week, so fantasy players should keep an eye on his status over the next few days. He has received at least 10 carries in four of the last five games but has not posted great numbers. He can be avoided even if he is active for the game.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (knee, hip) will need to 'rally' to be able to play Sunday, Dec. 27, in Week 16, according to a team beat reporter, as he deals with knee and hip injuries.
Huddle Up: Lindsay hasn't topped 8.2 PPR points in any of his last seven games, and has only served to siphon touches away from Melvin Gordon of late. Lindsay not a fantasy consideration even if he does wind up getting a green light.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (hip, knee) didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: Lindsay has taken a back seat to RB Melvin Gordon late in the season. He shouldn't be started in fantasy championships this week.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay ran 11 times for just 38 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15. He added three receptions for just seven yards.
Huddle Up: Lindsay split carries with Melvin Gordon, but it was Gordon who scored twice in the loss to the Bills. Lindsay is certainly the less-appealing option of the two late in the season.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (hip) is listed as questionable but is expected to play, per a source, in the Week 15 game Saturday, Dec. 19, against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: Surging backfield mate Melvin Gordon also is expected to play Saturday, and with Lindsay struggling mightily of late (only 77 yards on 36 touches over his last three games), it's wise to steer clear of using Lindsay in fantasy this week.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (hip) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 17, and is listed as questionable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for Lindsay's official status. He has received at least 10 carries in three of the last four games but has been held to under 30 yards in five of the last six games. He likely will see a decent amount of touches but can be avoided in most leagues.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (hip) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Dec. 16.
Huddle Up: Lindsay hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 8, and he hasn't played at least 50 percent of the offensive snaps since Week 6. He's purely a backup to Melvin Gordon and won't be worth starting if Gordon is active.
