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 @KevinColePFFSince the start of the 2017 season, only Christian McCaffrey and Alvin Kamara have more RB targets than James White. Probably has quite a bit to do with Brady, but really so no reason why this won't continue with Cam or Stidham.
Bart Wheeler
Hail to Fantasy Football
 Back into the top-40 with the addition of Cam. Could have the same/similar role as with Brady. This might be too low, especially in any sort of PPR/half PPR rankings.
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.Cam Newton's now at QB for the Patriots and he's shown a propensity for targeting pass-catching RBs. White's not going to suddenly turn into Christian McCaffrey, but he's a solid value right now in redraft ADP.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
 White had 908 yards from scrimmage and 6 touchdowns as the receiving back in this offense. His production is volatile and the backfield is deep, he is a flex option that will need to develop chemistry with new QB Cam Newton.
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.Will be interesting to see who's throwing him the ball in 2020 and if Sony/Harris can get involved in the passing game/on the field(cough, cough Harris) at all. Oh great, Stidham. A impossible offense to predict which Bill probably loves. We'll just have to rely far too much on preseason because relying on what Bill normally does would be relying on him never doing what you think. White has never played a year without Brady and we'll now have to rely on Stidham for those targets. I wonder if TE gets more involved this year, with Ben Watson leading the TE group with 24 targets last year. Could potentially impact White, plus probably not being top 5 in pass ATT.
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.He's one of the trickiest evaluations in fantasy football this year, as losing Tom Brady is going to affect him in a big way. The question becomes: Just how much upside will he lose? White was never someone you relied on for RB1 or RB2 production, but he would give you spikes in production from your flex spot that could help you win a week. He's seen a massive 290 targets over the last three years, and it's extremely unlikely the Patriots have Jarrett Stidham drop back anywhere close to the number of times Brady did. Not just that, but Brady always targeted his running backs in the passing game. There are just too many questions to rely on him for anything for more than low-end RB3/high-end RB4 production.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
 White derives almost all of his value from his prowess as a receiver, as he's topped 67 carries just once in his career. While his work in the passing game (218 targets, 159 receptions over the past two years) has kept him as a solid, if perhaps inconsistent, fantasy option, it's unclear if that will continue this season. He will undoubtedly remain the Patriots' passing-down back, but it's unlikely that he'll see quite the same production with Jarrett Stidham. He'll remain an option in PPR leagues, but that's likely the only format in which he'll be relevant.
