Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
There have been a lot of people talking about Stafford's 2019 season before injury, highlighting that it could be a sign of things to come. He was the No. 6 quarterback in fantasy through nine weeks, yes. But do you know who No. 5 was? Aaron Rodgers. That didn't end well. Stafford's 8.2 yards per attempt was easily a career high and just the second time in his career over 7.6 yards per attempt. He's going to be a fine low-end QB1/high-end QB2, but he's not likely to be a league winner at this stage of his career.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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Stafford was on pace for almost 5,000 yards passing and 38 passing touchdowns before he missed 8 games due to a back injury. The big worry at this point for the 32-year old quarterback is durability playing on a bad team. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Stafford was on fire before his injury last season and was a solid fantasy option. He's currently being drafted as the QB13 and should easily return that value in 2020.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.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
If we can just re-run last year and his career year that he was having before injury, he'll be a steady play for your fantasy team. Don't have to expect a career year 2 years in a row, just need Hockenson to take another step forward, and a hopefully improved run game to keep the offense humming.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.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
He was the QB6 through 9 weeks last year before going to the IR.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
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
After years of fantasy mediocrity and seemingly out of nowhere, Matthew Stafford exploded out of the blocks to start the 2019 season, averaging his most fantasy points per game since 2011. Heading into 2020, he provides a relatively safe option with sudden and surprising upside who you can grab later in drafts then many of the more established fantasy guns. He's a great option if he's still there in the double digit rounds of fantasy drafts.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.
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Before his Week 10 injury last season, Matthew Stafford was QB6 and in the talks for MVP. He returns this year with the same solid group of WR's as last year with the key addition of 2nd round rookie RB DeAndre Swift. Stafford has been known to stuff the stat sheets throughout his career and in an offense with this much firepower, we could see another top 10 finish in 2020.
