RB Phillip Lindsay inked a 1-year deal with the Colts, his agent announced. Lindsay was a revelation as an undrafted rookie back in 2018, running for 1,037 yards on 5.4 yards per carry. He backed that up with another 1,000-yard season in 2019 but has struggled the past 2 years, totaling 751 rushing yards on 3.6 yards per carry for 3 different teams (Denver, Houston, Miami). He'll battle for a backup job behind Jonathan Taylor in Indianapolis. Lindsay would figure to lose passing-down work to Nyheim Hines even in the case of a Taylor injury, so Lindsay isn't an attractive handcuff.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed is a healthy scratch for tonight's game vs. the Saints. Miami will roll with RBs Duke Johnson, Myles Gaskin and Phillip Lindsay.

Dolphins RB Phillip Lindsay has joined teammates Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed on the COVID list. All 3 are vaccinated, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, so they have a chance to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Jets. Miami has RBs Duke Johnson and Gerrid Doaks on the practice squad, with RB Malcolm Brown still on IR with the quad injury he suffered back in Week 7.

Dolphins RB Salvon Ahmed has joined teammate Myles Gaskin on the COVID list. We'll see if they can get cleared for Miami's next game in Week 15 vs. the Jets. The Dolphins currently have Phillip Lindsay on the active roster, Duke Johnson and Gerrid Doaks on the practice squad and Malcolm Brown on IR.

Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin tested positive for COVID, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Gaskin is vaccinated, so there's a chance he's cleared in time for Miami's Week 15 game vs. the Jets. If not, the Dolphins would be down to RBs Phillip Lindsay and Salvon Ahmed on the active roster. RBs Duke Johnson and Gerrid Doaks are on the practice squad, while RB Malcolm Brown (quad) is eligible to come off IR

Dolphins RB Phillip Lindsay (ankle) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Giants. Myles Gaskin has averaged 18.3 carries and 3.5 targets over his last 4 games and should continue to see plenty of volume today.

Dolphins RB Phillip Lindsay (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Giants. He got some mop-up work last week but wasn't a real threat to RB Myles Gaskins' volume. Of course, Lindsay's absence doesn't hurt Gaskins' Week 13 outlook.

The Dolphins have claimed RB Phillip Lindsay off waivers. He joins a backfield that has been dominated by Myles Gaskin lately. Claiming Lindsay probably means Miami would rather not give Gaskin quite so many touches. The former Texan and Bronco has faired poorly as a passing-down back throughout his career, though. So Gaskin should continue to control at least that area of Miami's backfield. We'd bet on Gaskin remaining a decent option in low RB2 territory, but his touch floor could be coming down. We'll see just what the Dolphins have in mind for Lindsay. Miami has also recently mixed Duke Johnson in and could get Malcolm Brown back from a quad injury that landed him on IR.

The Texans released RB Phillip Lindsay. He finishes his 10-game Houston tenure with 50 carries for 130 yards -- 2.6 yards per carry. We'll see where Lindsay lands, but he's a long shot to be a fantasy factor the rest of this season. The Texans seem content to split backfield duties between David Johnson and Rex Burkhead the rest of the way. Even in a plus Week 12 matchup vs. the Jets, the situation should be avoided in fantasy lineups.

The Saints acquired RB Mark Ingram from the Texans. Ingram, of course, spent the first 8 years of his career in New Orleans. He'll return as RB Alvin Kamara's backup and just a handcuff in fantasy football. Ingram only figures to siphon a few carries per game from Kamara. Ingram led Houston with 92 carries through 7 games, so his departure leaves behind a decent amount of work for RBs David Johnson and Phillip Lindsay. We'll see exactly how the workload is divvied going forward, but you'll still be better off avoiding the Texans backfield.

The Texans are carrying RBs Phillip Lindsay, Mark Ingram, David Johnson, Rex Burkhead and Scottie Phillips on their 53-man roster. Based on preseason usage, we expect Lindsay and Ingram to share early-down work, with Johnson and possibly Burkhead playing on passing downs. It's a situation in avoid in fantasy football.

Texans RB David Johnson played behind RB Phillip Lindsay in Week 1 of the preseason, getting out-snapped 8 to 2 with the 1st-team offense. Both of Johnson's snaps came on 3rd down, while Lindsay played all the 1st- and 2nd-down snaps. Johnson seems to have accepted that he'll be playing a reduced role this season. “Obviously, as it’s going on, in the moment it’s tough,” Johnson said. “But I think in the long run, it will just help out the team as a whole.” We're still expecting Johnson to handle the majority of the pass-catching work out of Houston's backfield, which gives him some PPR value. But Lindsay looks like the favorite to lead in carries.

The Texans signed RB Rex Burkhead. The soon-to-be 31-year-old missed the final 6 games of last season after knee surgery and has a lengthy injury history. He remained reasonably effective last year, averaging 4.1 yards per carry and 7.7 yards per catch. But his days as a fantasy asset are likely over. That's especially true on the Texans, who look like a bad team with a crowded backfield. Houston has added Burkhead, Phillip Lindsay and Mark Ingram to David Johnson this offseason.

The Texans signed RB Phillip Lindsay to a 1-year, $3.25 million deal. He joins incumbent starter David Johnson and Mark Ingram, who signed a 1-year, $2.5 million deal last week, in Houston's backfield. This looks like a 3-headed attack in what will be a bad offense if QB Deshaun Watson is traded away.
