Originally Lindsay was said to have a shot to play in Week 17, but his season is now over as the injury is believed to be more serious. Lindsay was an undrafted free agent who turned into a Pro Bowler this year. Freeman should get a shot at a big workload against the Chargers in Week 17.
DEN RB Royce Freeman - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Los Angeles Chargers
With Phillip Lindsay out for the season finale, Royce Freeman will be the Broncos featured back on Sunday. Last Monday night at Oakland the rookie carried the ball seven times for 21 yards. In mid-November against the Chargers ran for 23 yards and a TD, but as the No. 1 back on Sunday expect him to receive the bulk of the rushing attempts. Consider Freeman an RB2 play.
