Huddle Up: Melvin Gordon will receive most of the work at running back with Lindsay unable to play. He will be facing one of the top defenses in the NFL this week but can still be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: It doesn't sound too serious, but it could come down to pain tolerance. Melvin Gordon rushed 15 times for 78 yards and a score, and he'll be a solid RB2 while Lindsay is out.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay will still be involved in the team's passing game despite the ballyhooed offseason signing of RB Melvin Grordon, according to new offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. 'Listen, I'm all for adding good players at every position,' Shurmur said Thursday, June 11 in a Zoom media conference. 'I feel like Phillip Lindsay's an outstanding player (who) we can hand the ball to or throw the ball to. The fact that we have two running backs now (who) can be very explosive with the ball in their hands, whether you throw it or run it, I think is a good thing.'
Huddle Up: Lindsay was the lead back a year ago in the Broncos' committee with Royce Freeman, but he now shifts to the change-of-pace role with Gordon coming aboard as the new lead back. Value Gordon as a RB2 and Lindsay as a high-end RB4, who needs to improve as a receiver.
