Shark Bites for Phillip Lindsay | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Phillip Lindsay Fantasy Football News 2019

The Broncos have hired Rich Scangarello as OC. He's bounced around to multiple college programs over the past 2 decades and also spent time with the Raiders, Falcons and 49ers. Scangarello worked under Kyle Shanahan in those last 2 stops, which is promising. He's never called plays at the NFL level, though, making this a tough hire to decipher for fantasy purposes.

The Broncos are set to hire Vic Fangio as their HC, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Fangio has 14 seasons of experience as an NFL defensive coordinator but has never been a HC at any level. We'll see who he tabs to run his offense.

Update: Denver has named Gary Kubiak its new OC. Kubiak has 22 seasons of experience as an NFL HC or OC, including 13 with the Broncos. He's landed an impressive 19 units inside the top 16 in total yards and 11 in the top 5.

The Broncos have fired HC Vance Joseph, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Joseph lasted just 2 seasons in Denver, going 5-11 in his debut and 6-10 this year. We'll see who GM John Elway tabs as his replacement.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay is undergoing surgery on his wrist on Friday and is expected to be sidelined 3-4 months, NFL Network's James Palmer reports. That timeline would have Lindsay back on the field sometime between the end of March and the end of April. He'll miss some of the offseason program but should be a full-go by the time training camp rolls around. Although he won't play in the game, Lindsay became the 1st ever undrafted offensive rookie to be selected to the Pro Bowl. He finished the season with 1,037 rushing yards and 9 TDs on 5.4 yards per carry and also showed pass-catching chops with a 35-241-1 receiving line.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay will miss Week 17 because of the wrist injury that knocked him out of Monday night's loss to the Raiders. Lindsay will have further testing on the wrist. The worry is a potential scaphoid fracture and ligament damage. We'll see about the extent, but the issue is at least serious enough that he'll also miss the Pro Bowl. It shouldn't impact his 2019, but we'll keep an eye on the situation. For Week 17, Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker should see more work against the Chargers.

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay left Monday night's game against the Raiders early with a hand injury and has been ruled out. We'll see whether the issue costs him further time.

Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) isn’t listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including full workouts on Thursday and Friday. Freeman has averaged 10.1 carries per game so far and might see less work than that against the Chargers this weekend with RB Phillip Lindsay playing well.

Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. That again leaves the backfield to Phillip Lindsay and Devontae Booker. With Freeman out last week, Lindsay carried 18 times and caught all 3 of his targets while Booker handled 9 carries and 4 targets.

Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) is not expected to play against Houston today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Freeman is officially questionable, and HC Vance Joseph told the team website Friday that he's "getting better fast." But the team will reportedly let him rest the ankle through the Week 10 bye. Freeman's absence helps the touch outlooks for Phillip Lindsay and Devontae Booker, each of whom posted nice fantasy numbers (in a much better matchup) last week against the Chiefs.

Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Texans. He put in a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the first 2 workouts of the week. We’d bet against Freeman playing on Sunday. But if he does, it’d be a knock to RB Phillip Lindsay’s fantasy value.

Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) remained sidelined on Wednesday. Reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain, Freeman isn't a good bet to return for this weekend's game vs. Houston. With Freeman out last week, RB Philip Lindsay racked up a season-high 21 touches.

Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) is out for this weekend's game against the Chiefs. He's averaged 10.1 carries per game this season, so it's a significant loss. Look for RB Phillip Lindsay to soak up most of that action, making him a borderline RB1 in a plus matchup vs. a Kansas City defense allowing 5.1 yards per carry. RB Devontae Booker should also see more work but is just a low-end option in PPR leagues.

Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) remained sidelined on Thursday. He's looking like a long shot to play against the Chiefs this weekend. That'd mean an increased role for Phillip Lindsay, who would be a borderline RB1 in the plus matchup.

Broncos RB Royce Freeman (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. He's reportedly dealing with a high-ankle sprain. HC Vance Joseph has labeled Freeman "day-to-day," but consider him a poor bet to play against the Chiefs this weekend. That'd leave the backfield to Phillip Lindsay and Devontae Booker.
