Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay ejected for throwing punches

Sunday, September 23, 2018, 2:40pm

USA Today - [Full Article]

Denver Broncos rookie running back Phillip Lindsay was ejected Sunday afternoon for throwing punches in the pile during a post-play scuffle with the Baltimore Ravens.

The incident came with 2:31 left in the first half and followed a strip sack by Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs. Broncos quarterback Case Keenum lost the ball, but Denver recovered. While multiple players were on the ground, a Ravens player appeared to be engaged with Lindsay, whose back was on the ground. Lindsay then retaliated by striking his arm out, though replay cameras showed that he may have been trying to get the Ravens player to let go of Lindsay’s jersey.

Fantasy Impact:

Freeman and Booker will see a bulk of the work the rest of the way.

Scouting Report

Week 1 vs. Seattle Seahawks

It was announced on Monday that Royce Freeman will be the Broncos starting RB on Sunday, relegating Devontae Booker to mainly the third down back. Booker has registered 61 receptions during his first two NFL seasons and will be a better pass blocking option for the team than the rookie. Expect Booker to receive around 10 touches in the contest, but not enough for him to be in your fantasy starting lineup.
