The Broncos have rescinded the restricted free-agent tender on RB Phillip Lindsay, leaving him free to sign elsewhere. Despite averaging 4.8 yards per carry the past 3 seasons, Lindsay never seemed wanted in Denver. A new home figures to be good news for his fantasy value -- although we'll see exactly where he ends up. The Broncos' RB depth chart now reads: Melvin Gordon, Royce Freeman, Mike Boone. We'll see if they add to the group, but Gordon's fantasy value gets a boost with Lindsay's departure.
The Colts released RB Phillip Lindsay. Even with RB Jonathan Taylor out last week, Lindsay was just 3rd in the backfield behind Deon Jackson and Jordan Wilkins. The move looks like another sign that Taylor is on track to return for Sunday's game vs. the Raiders.
Colts RB Phillip Lindsay has been elevated from the practice squad. He'll join Nyheim Hines and Deon Jackson in Indianapolis' Jonathan Taylor-less backfield vs. the Broncos tonight. We're expecting Hines to take on an increased rushing role and dominate passing-down work. We'll see how the rest of the snaps and touches are divvied between Lindsay and Jackson, but neither guy is a viable fantasy play outside of 1-game DFS contests.
Colts HC Frank Reich said RB Phillip Lindsay "will work into the equation" if RB Jonathan Taylor (ankle) can't play vs. the Broncos on Thursday night. Lindsay has spent the first 4 weeks of the season on the practice squad but is Indy's most experienced ball-carrier behind Taylor. RB Nyheim Hines would still be the top Week 5 fantasy option if Taylor can't go, but don't expect Hines to get a huge workload.
The Colts released RB Phillip Lindsay. It's a slightly surprising move and leaves RB Ty'Son Williams as the #3 RB behind Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines. We'll see if the Colts make another move at the position.
Colts beat writer Zak Keefer calls Phillip Lindsay the team’s 3rd RB “right now.” That was the expectation after signing a 1-year deal in May, but it’s good to know he’s not falling out of favor. After all, the 28-year-old hasn’t been fantasy relevant since 2019 in Denver. Lindsay would likely enter a timeshare with Nyheim Hines should Jonathan Taylor miss games.
