Free-agent RB Phillip Lindsay (Broncos) reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $3.25 million with the Houston Texans on Friday, March 19.
Huddle Up: Adding Lindsay is a solid depth move for Houston and probably one of the team's better signings so far in free agency, but it is a puzzling acquisition nonetheless. Lindsay will be the third Texan runner to make at least $3 million in 2021 and joins Mark Ingram as more of a straight-ahead early-down runner on an offense that figures to be trailing often next season. Fantasy owners should consider Lindsay a late-round pick at best in drafts this summer.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay and the team mutually agreed to rescind his restricted free-agent tender Thursday, March 18, according to his agent Mike McCartney.
Huddle Up: Lindsay showed flashes of a fantasy gem a couple of years ago, but he couldn't stay on the field. He could be a great RB3 or maybe an RB2 in the right situation.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay, a pending restricted free agent, is expected to be tendered by the team this offseason, according to a source. The question is whether the tender offer will be an original-round tender -- in Lindsay's case a no-round tender as he was an undrafted free agent -- or a second-round tender.
Huddle Up: Injury issues which cost Lindsay five games and portions of others in 2020 were the primary factor in seeing his total yards dip from 1,207 to 530 and his TDs fall from seven to one, but he is a smaller back with pass-catching and pass-protection limitations, reducing his free-agent value. It's easy to envision Lindsay re-signing with the Broncos after finding the market tepid --even if he receives a no-round tender -- and playing a RB 4/5 second fiddle to lead back Melvin Gordon in 2021.

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 (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.
