RB - HOU
Week 2 Outlook
Texans RB Phillip Lindsay ran eight times for 25 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Jaguars.
Lindsay wasn't a factor in the receiving game, failing to haul in his lone target. He did however out-touch David Johnson. While Mark Ingram, Johnson and Lindsay all found the endzone Sunday, this could become an unpredictable backfield that mangers want to avoid for fantasy purposes.
Texans RB Phillip Lindsay ran five times for 14 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Packers.
Lindsay wasn't a factor in the receiving game. He out-snapped presumed starter David Johnson eight-to-two. This is shaping up as a backfield to avoid for fantasy purposes.
Former Broncos RB has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Houston Texans.
It's reportedly a one-year deal worth $3.25 million and $500,000 in incentives. Lindsay will be joining a crowded backfield that already features David Johnson and Mark Ingram. This isn't a good landing spot for his fantasy value.
The Denver Broncos have rescinded their original-round tender on RB Phillip Lindsay.
This was reportedly a mutual decision between the two sides and it means that Lindsay is now a free agent. Denver replaced him by agreeing to terms with former Vikings RB Mike Boone earlier this week. Lindsay's landing spot will determine his fantasy value, but it'll be tough for him to be a dependable option regardless of where he goes.
Denver Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay has been given the low RFA tender, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The 26-year old running back rushed for over 1,000 yards in 2020. This marks back-to-back seasons eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark for Lindsay. With the Broncos placing the low Restricted Free Agent (RFA) tender on Lindsay, this means other teams can offer more and the Broncos can opt to either match the offer or risk losing him without compensation. The undrafted running back is entering his fourth-year and still has a lot of miles left on him, including the massive chip on his shoulder from being a draft snub. Expect Lindsay to seek other offers as Broncos RB Melvin Gordon usurped the lead-back role in 2020 and appears to have it locked down heading into 2021.
