Summary

Phillip Lindsay was a phenomenon last year during his rookie season. Undrafted out of Colorado, Lindsay went from being a hometown favorite and perhaps a satellite back to the starter and featured running back for the Denver Broncos. He rushed for over 1,000 yards even though he didn't begin the season as the starter and only started eight games for the Broncos and played only 15 games in 2018. The production he had as a rookie made him a high-end RB2 for Fantasy GMs and that's a proper place to project his totals for this year too. A wrist injury, that is likely to take until August to heal from, ended Lindsay's season prematurely last year and his lack of size (190 pounds) will always bring up question about durability. Add in that the Broncos should use Royce Freeman a bit more and you can see how Lindsay's numbers might not decrease in 2019 but might not increase dramatically either. (May 6)
