Draft note
by John Paulsen
Lindsay finished No. 19 last year after a No. 12 finish the year before. He’s being drafted in the eighth or ninth round due to the Broncos’ decision to sign Melvin Gordon to a lucrative contract, all but ensuring that Lindsay’s touches take a big hit. I’m expecting Gordon to take Lindsay’s 259-touch role with Lindsay getting most of Royce Freeman’s 175 touches from last year. He would have top 15 upside if something were to happen to Gordon.

DEN RB Phillip Lindsay - 2020 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
After eclipsing 1,000 rushing yards in each of his first two seasons, Phillip Lindsay will be splitting time with Melvin Gordon in the Broncos backfield. Like Gordon, he has excellent hands, recording 35 catches in both of his professional years. Despite being a small RB, Lindsay’s only missed one game so far in his career and has found the end zone 17 times already. While sharing the backfield with Royce Freeman last season, he led the team with an average of 14 rushing attempts.

Fantasy Downside
Despite Lindsay being a local guy and fan favorite, the Broncos signed Melvin Gordon to a two-year deal, which will definitely put a dent in Lindsay’s playing time and workload. At just 5’8” and 190 pounds, he’s struggled in short-yardage situations and you had to figure the Denver brass knew he couldn’t continue to take a beating every week. Last season his yards per carry dropped by nearly a yard from his rookie campaign and only once in his career has he exceeded 20 carries in a contest.

Bottom Line
As long as they both remain healthy, expect to see Lindsay and Gordon share the backfield duties, with Gordon receiving slightly more of the touches. Gordon is the bigger back and it’s expected that more of the short-yardage carries will go to him as well. Lindsay’s fantasy value will dip this year, but he still has value. However, expect that not only will his yardage total likely decrease in ‘20, but so will his end-zone appearances.
