Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay is set to become a restricted free agent in 2021, and while general manager John Elway has yet to completely dismiss the possibility of signing him to a long-term contract, he doesn't appear to be motivated to address the matter anytime soon. 'We'll see what happens. ... That's not a guarantee,' Elway said.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay is eligible for a contract extension this offseason after going undrafted in 2018, but he's also under team control for the next two seasons as well. General manager John Elway was noncommittal about getting an extension done anytime soon when asked about it at the NFL Scouting Combine, instead opting to see where the team is cap-wise later this spring. 'We'll see where everything falls after free agency, after the draft (and) how much money we have. We would like to be able to do something. Obviously, Phillip's been great. If we can do something, we'll try,' Elway said.

The Denver Broncos are not expected to discuss a potential contract extension with RB Phillip Lindsay until after free agency has opened and the draft has been completed, according to general manager John Elway.
Huddle Up: Lindsay has surpassed 1,000 rushing yards in each of his first two seasons but only has 70 catches over that span. The team is considering using him as an every-down back and including him more in their passing game in 2020, which would make him worthy of consideration as a high-end RB2 option in most fantasy formats.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay will be used more as a receiver out of the backfield in 2020, according to offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.
Huddle Up: Lindsay has topped 1,000 yards on the ground in each of his first two seasons, but he only has 70 combined catches for 437 yards in that same span. If he is deployed as more of an every-down back in 2020, he could push towards the top of the RB2 tier.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) said Saturday, Jan. 25, has already recovered from a minor scope he had done on his wrist three weeks ago. 'The procedure definitely helped, because it gave me a lot more flexibility and less pain,' Lindsay said. 'The cleanup was to take out some scar tissue that built up over time, which I knew was going to have to happen. I knew about it since day one that I was going to have to get some cleanup done, especially after a season of getting hit. ... Honestly, I feel really good. I could play today if I needed to.'
Huddle Up: Lindsay totaled 1,207 yards from scrimmage with seven rushing and receiving touchdowns in 2019. He's expected to have a full offseason workload and will be a fantasy RB2 in both standard and PPR formats next season.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (wrist) underwent surgery on his right wrist, according to a source Thursday, Jan. 16. It was a clean-up arthroscopic procedure, according to the source, and he's expected to be fully ready for the beginning of offseason work.
Huddle Up: Lindsay took a slight step back in his sophomore season, but he still topped 1,000 rushing yards and now has 17 total touchdowns across his first two NFL campaigns. He'll be a low-end RB2 in 2020 fantasy drafts.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay rushed 19 times for 109 yards and a touchdown and caught two of his three targets for nine yards in a 27-17 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Fresh off his worst rushing performance of the year, he bounced back in a big way. It hasn't been a dominant year for Lindsay, but he's on pace to top 1,000 yards rushing. He will have RB2 potential against the Oakland Raiders in the finale.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay rushed for 32 yards on seven carries against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 15. He was targeted twice in the passing game but finished with zero receptions.
Huddle Up: Lindsay received under 10 carries for the first time in five games and his 32 yards were his lowest total of the season. He should receive a bigger role next week and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option.

Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay rushed 16 times for 51 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for four yards in a 38-24 win over the Houston Texans in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Lindsay has been held below 70 rushing yards in four straight games, but he consistently sees around 15 touches, making him a volume-based flex play with RB2 upside.
Posted: 12/07/2019 3:01 am UTC
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay faces the Houston Texans in Week 14, and the Texans have allowed at least 145 rushing yards in three of the four games since DE J.J. Watt (pectoral) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list.
Huddle Up: Despite a committee approach in the backfield, Lindsay has been the steadiest Denver back for fantasy owners. He should be a solid flex option with RB2 upside against a Houston defense that has been struggling to stop the run without its star anchoring the line.
