Jacob Wayne
Lineups
Phillip Lindsay has been tremendously successful since joining the Broncos as an undrafted free agent two years ago - he's rushed for 1,000+ yards twice, has caught 70 balls, and has 17 total touchdowns despite sharing work with Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker. Melvin Gordon will eat into Lindsay's workload more than either player did. With the one-two- punch of Gordon and Lindsay, the team's real-life rushing attack should be potent, but it's going to be tough to trust either guy on a weekly basis.When Alvin Kamara's contract situation was entirely up in the air earlier this offseason, Latavius Murray was a high priority handcuff. He's still a high-priority late-round draft pick, especially for Kamara owners. If Kamara's contract situation goes south unexpectedly or he unfortunately gets injured again, Murray has top-ten upside. He doesn't have great standalone value behind Kamara, but he's one of my favorite high-upside late picks.
Draft Engine
Draft Engine
Lindsay was a pleasant surprise as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2018, but he wasn't nearly as effective last season. Unless Melvin Gordon struggles or misses time with an injury, Lindsay is unlikely to carry significant fantasy value in 2020. 
Wolf of Roto Street
Roto Street Journal
Huge faller with Melvin Gordon now locked into Shurmur's workhorse roleHuge riser on the off-chance Alvin Kamara's holdout lingers and he emerges as 2020's version of 2018 James Conner
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.Latavius Murray remains the league's top handcuff. He showed his worth when Alvin Kamara got injured as Murray gifted his fantasy owners 61 points in just two weeks. Nothing has changed. Murray will remain a desperation weekly start with enormous handcuff upside. He's an excellent gamble once the core of your team is set as the Kamara holdout news makes an early-season role a real possibility.
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.Did everyone forget what happened when Alvin Kamara had to miss time last year? It was only two weeks, but in those two games, Murray destroyed the Bears and Cardinals to the tune of 307 total yards and four total touchdowns. He's legitimately a league-winner if Kamara misses time. This is what handcuff dreams are made of. He's also going to have bye week appeal, even when Kamara is on the field.
Rob Wilson
The Fantasy Footballers
Underrated potential RB3. Denver would be wise to keep a back to back 1k rusher on the field in some capacity 
Dalton Kates
APEX Fantasy Leagues
1of 5 RBs to have 1k yards on the ground and 35 receptions in each of the past two seasons. A do-it-all producer who now likely enters as the 2nd fiddle to Gordon. There's reason to believe Lindsay is the better RB at this stage in their career and Gordon won't take over a workhorse role. Lindsay can make this a committee. 
Elliot Berkovits
Packer Report
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.Latavius Murray proved his value as a handcuff last year when Alvin Kamara was forced to miss time. In the two games that Kamara missed, Murray ran for 221 yards, scored four total TD's, and caught 14 passes. He should have some stand-alone value but the only real reason to draft Murray would be to handcuff Kamara.
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.Murray's going to have minimal standalone fantasy value in 2020, but we've seen what he can do if Alvin Kamara misses time. Murray's a fantastic pick in the later rounds.
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 @KevinColePFF 
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.
