Lindsay seemed like he was almost on his way out of the NFL after the Broncos and Lindsay's camp agreed to mutually part ways this off-season. However, he found a home in Houston in a crowded backfield and he seems to have clawed his way up the depth chart. While Lindsay appears to be trending towards being the predominant ball-carrier in this offense for 2021, that doesn't necessarily mean that he should be a hot commodity in fantasy leagues. This Texans team is going to struggle to put points up on the board this year and Lindsay might be replaced halfway through the game if Houston has to go into catch-up mode. He's a high-floor/low-ceiling asset in fantasy this league that shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a RB4 for your lineup.While Nyheim Hines finished as the RB20 last season, anyone who rostered him in fantasy football knows that he was not exactly the most consistent option week in and week out. Jonathan Taylor should shoulder the majority of the workload for this offense, while Hines sprinkles in behind him and rotates with Marlon Mack. Frank Reich should still continue to utilize multiple RBs in this backfield, but Hines' workload most likely will not be enough to lead to anything more than low-end RB3 weekly production. My Very Early Projection: 49-222-1 rushing & 46-347-2 receiving.

According the beat writers Lindsay has leapfrogged David Johnson. They expect Lindsay to get most of the Texans carries this year. Temper expectations though. It's still the Texans offense.

It's a shame Lindsay went to a team that's in complete shambles at the moment because he's a fine running back. Most would be shocked to learn that since the start of the 2018 season, Lindsay ranks 10th in rushing yards among running backs. He's averaged 4.78 yards per carry during that time, so it wasn't just volume. Again, Houston is a mess right now, and have a backfield that consists of Lindsay, David Johnson, Mark Ingram, and Rex Burkhead. There are not going to be enough touches to warrant a draft pick on Lindsay.He finished as the RB20 in half PPR formats last year. Crazy, right? While that's firm RB2 territory, he finished as an RB2 or better in just 43.8 percent of his games, tied with Chase Edmonds. He clearly has a role in this offense, though it's a bit reliant on gamescript, as Jonathan Taylor is the clear early-down back, while Hines is the preferred back in passing situations. If they give Taylor more work in the passing game this year, it's coming at the expense of Hines, and knowing Taylor's ADP, drafters expect that increase for Taylor. Even going back to 2019, Hines was an RB3 or better just 43.8 percent of the time, which is more in line for how you should feel about him in 2021. He's just an emergency flex option.

Despite back to back 1,000 yard rushing seasons, the Broncos were continuously trying to replace Phillip Lindsay and after a down year in 2020 with injuries, he finds himself now in Houston. David Johnson is still ahead of him on the depth chart, but should an injury occur to DJ, Lindsay immediately becomes one of the more intriguing handcuffs. The lack of clarity with Deshaun Watson clouds this entire offense. Lindsay is bench depth at RB in deeper leagues at this time.
