  • Phillip Lindsay Not On Track To Return In Week 3

    Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (toe) missed practice on Wednesday and doesn't appear likely to return to action in Week 3 against the Buccaneers after sitting out in Week 2 with turf toe. Lindsay initially suffered the injury in the season-opener, and his timetable was set for two to four weeks. His injury makes Melvin Gordon more of an RB2 because of his guaranteed larger workload, with Royce Freeman picking up scraps behind him. Lindsay is probably only worth holding onto right now in shallow leagues if you own Gordon. The two were in a near-even timeshare in Week 1 before Lindsay was injured, which means that Lindsay could have some deep league RB3/flex appeal in PPR formats when he returns.

  • Phillip Lindsay Out Two-To-Four Weeks

    Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (toe) is likely looking at a two-to-four week absence, as reported by Ian Rapoport. Lindsay sustained the injury in the first half of their Week 1 game with the Titans and he was initially listed as week-to-week. After getting a second opinion, his chances of suiting up for Week 3 aren't looking great either. It's unfortunate for fantasy managers because Lindsay was seeing a near-even split with Melvin Gordon III. Gordon III will see a boost in fantasy value while his fellow backfield mate is out, though he has tough matchups against the Steelers and Buccaneers on deck.

  • Phillip Lindsay Won't Play In Week 2

    Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (toe) missed practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Steelers. Lindsay hurt his toe in the first half of the Week 1 loss to the Steelers and was diagnosed with turf toe. He's listed as week-to-week for now, but the good news is that he had a near-even split of the workload with Melvin Gordon III before he went down with his injury. Gordon will be more of a low-end RB2 this Sunday with Lindsay out, despite the tough matchup against Pittsburgh's defense. Expect Royce Freeman to spell Gordon when he needs a breather, but he won't have any standalone fantasy value in this matchup.

  • Phillip Lindsay Could Be On The Shelf For A Few Games

    Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (toe) is still receiving a second opinion on his turf-toe injury, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see him miss the next few weeks based on the nature of the injury and the position he plays. But the good news is that his injury isn't considered to be long-term. Lindsay is almost certainly going to sit out in Week 2 against the Steelers, so you should be making other plans if you were planning on starting him as an RB3/flex. Royce Freeman will spell Melvin Gordon III for however long Lindsay is out, but he doesn't have any real standalone fantasy value. Gordon will be facing a tough Steelers defensive front, making him more of an RB3/flex in his second game with Denver.

  • Phillip Lindsay Dealing With Turf Toe

    Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (toe) is dealing with turf toe that the team hopes is "mild," according to a source. His status will be in question for Week 2 against the Steelers, so keep a close eye on his practice participation this week leading up to the game. Lindsay had seven carries for 24 yards and caught his one target for 11 yards, but he didn't play at all in the second half in the 16-14 loss to the Titans on Monday. When healthy, he's an RB3/flex option while splitting the workload with Melvin Gordon III, but he seems very questionable for Week 2 against the Steelers. If he can't go, Royce Freeman would be the primary backup to Gordon in a very tough matchup.

  • Phillip Lindsay Injures Foot In Season Opener

    Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay (foot) injured his foot in the first half of the 16-14 Monday night loss to the Titans and didn't return after halftime. Lindsay finished with seven carries for just 24 yards and one catch for 11 yards. We'll have to wait and see how serious Lindsay's injury is. If he's forced to miss any time, Melvin Gordon III will be the clear backfield leader with Royce Freeman spelling him. The good news for Lindsay owners is that he was in a near-even timeshare with Gordon in the first half, and the Broncos could go with more of a hot-hand approach down the road between the two backs. But as long as Gordon is healthy, Lindsay is a low-upside RB3/flex.
