Broncos Beat: RB Phillip Lindsay a home run threat

From the instant Denver signed Phillip Lindsay as an undrafted free agent, I shouted he would make the team. But I didn’t see this coming. If Royce Freeman is the No. 1 running back on the roster, then Lindsay is No. 1A.

He gives Denver a home-run threat on safe play calls.

For those looking to take a shot on a RB after Week 1, Lindsay seems like he should be close to the top of your list.
