Broncos Beat: 2018 rookie class gives reason for optimism

Monday, January 14, 2019, 9:47am

ESPN - [Full Article]

Best rookie: The Broncos had plenty of candidates here, including Bradley Chubb (first round) and wide receiver Courtland Sutton (second round) -- they were 1-2 among Denver's rookies as each played more than 800 snaps this season -- but undrafted rookie running back Phillip Lindsay is the pick. Lindsay, who missed the finale after wrist surgery, finished ninth in the league in rushing (1,037 yards) and was second in the league in yards per carry (5.4). He was the most consistent player in the Broncos' offense.

Related players: DaeSean Hamilton

Fantasy Impact:

The story gave the nod to Hamilton as the most improved rookie. He didn't have a catch the first six games out of seven but then became a reliable target to finish up the season. Sutton, a second round pick, also showed flashes, especially through the first half of the season, but from a fantasy standpoint, he perhaps disappointed a little toward the end of the year when Demaryius Thomas was traded and Emmanuel Sanders was hurt and Sutton was expected to be a top target. Both Hamilton and Sutton will be in the mix as potential top targets in 2019.

Scouting Report

Week 16 at Oakland Raiders

The Browns forced Case Keenum to beat them last Saturday, keeping eight defenders in the box for much of the contest. As a result, Phillip Lindsay turned 14 carries into just 24 yards – his lowest total since Week 6. Lindsay registered 20 yards on four receptions in the loss, expect the Raiders to use a similar tactic on Monday night, especially since the rookie ran for 107 yards in the September meeting. Lindsay has rushed for a total of only 54 yards the past two weeks but should have more success in Oakland on Monday versus the league’s worst run defense.
