Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Lindsay finds himself in a difficult situation this year now that Melvin Gordon has been added to the Broncos backfield. While I don't expect Gordon to come in immediately take the lions-share of the work, there's no doubt this is going to be a timeshare. It's hard to trust Lindsay as anything more than a flex option at this point.Last season Henderson had his opportunities to prove that he can be the next guy up and did not live up to expectations. Now, the Rams added rookie Cam Akers who looks more likely to handle the bulk of the workload leaving Henderson in as nothing more than a handcuff for now.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
I don't think I've ever seen someone glanced over as easily as Lindsay in both real life and fantasy. Over the last two years, here are the only players who have more rushing yards than him: Ezekiel Elliott, Derrick Henry, Nick Chubb, Christian McCaffrey, Chris Carson, Saquon Barkley, Joe Mixon, and Todd Gurley.Some Henderson truthers are dead-set on him being "the guy" in this offense, but the Rams selecting Cam Akers with their first pick in the draft is extremely worrisome. They used a second-round pick on Akers, while Henderson himself was taken with a third-round pick. I'm not willing to say that Henderson is completely out of contention, but his value took a blow in the draft. This is likely to be a timeshare backfield, making him a risky RB3 in redraft leagues.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
While Lindsay is one of the more talented running backs in the NFL, Melvin Gordon's presence in Denver puts a bit of a damper on Lindsay's fantasy outlook in 2020. Lindsay will still be involved in this offense, but he'll be moved to more of a change-of-pace option.Henderson was drafted in the 3rd round last year by the LA Rams, but he's currently on a free-fall drop in ADP due to the arrival of Cam Akers. Akers is an athletic RB prospect out of Florida State, but he lacks refinement in the key areas of the position. Akers is at his best in space, which leads me to think that the Rams may be more keen on using Akers as a pass-catcher out of the backfield. That would lead to Henderson being the predominant ball-carrier in between the tackles. Henderson is still going to be involved in this offense, so he's a value at his current ADP. However, he does not have an incredibly high ceiling with Akers' presence and a poor offensive line in front of him. He's a fine bench RB for your fantasy roster that you can plug in on bye weeks.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
Might not mean much because of $$$ invested, but ... 2019 @PFF rushing grade: Phillip Lindsay - 8th Melvin Gordon - 23rd 2019 Elusive Rating: Phillip Lindsay - 25th Melvin Gordon - 34th 2019 PFF receiving grade: Phillip Lindsay - 37th Melvin Gordon - 37th Phillip Lindsay is one of the more interesting ZeroRB candidates. Size/speed profile of receiving backs who break out most often, but the workload splits of a larger, run-heavy backs @KevinColePFFThey invested heavily in Henderson by trading up to 70 last year to get him. Hendo is arguably the most efficient college RB ever, was among the league's best in both yards created per carry & juke rate, Malcolm Brown has played 54 regular season G's & has less than 1000 yds. @DFFMemphis
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Undrafted sophomore cum Pro Bowler Phillip Lindsay has copped a brutal blow to his fantasy value in the form of stud RB Melvin Gordon. While Lindsay managed two 1000+ yard season in a committee, he now sits on the wrong side of what will likely be a 60-30-10 split with Lindsay taking the less valuable between-the-tackles work while Gordon gets most of the goal line and receiving work. While Lindsay will still have some big weeks due to his ability to break off explosive plays, he's highly likely to see single digit carries most weeks. That makes him little more than a high value handcuff with spot-start upside in a pinch.Please don't fall for Darrell Henderson this time. I saw him go in the second round of redraft leagues at times last year which was insane even then. The guy isn't very good, he doesn't catch passes and this offence is nothing compared to what it used to be. At best he's a committee back with no passing down upside and little handcuff value. Hard pass.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
Saying he'll fill the Ekeler roll is lazy, as he's a much worse pass catcher and route runner, neither are great at pass protection, and yet, Lindsay is worse. Broncos now have 2 backs better at passpro and receiving on the roster.
