Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
The Broncos backfield was in a smash spot last week, but both Gordon and Lindsay failed to deliver against the Raiders. They'll have a tougher matchup with the Dolphins this week, as Miami ranks eight spots better than the fifth-worth Raiders against running backs. It seems that Gordon is still the favored rusher in this backfield, despite Lindsay's occasional bursts of efficiency, and he's the better start here because of that. You can start Gordon as a low-end RB2/FLEX here, but I would leave Lindsay on your bench or on waivers. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Dolphins are 18th against fantasy backs, but Gordon has seen only 25 carries in the last 3 games. He is more of a low-upside flex option playing for a team that often falls behind early in games. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We've gone back and forth every week on these two, trying to figure out who has the most value, but in the end, what if it's neither of them? Just once have one of them finished as a top-20 running back since Week 4. The Broncos defense is falling behind early and often, forcing them into a negative gamescript and passing more than they'd like. The Dolphins haven't allowed a rushing touchdown to a running back since way back in Week 4 and haven't allowed more than 128 yards on the ground to any team of running backs. It helps that they haven't faced many carries (21.8 per game), which is not great for this timeshare. They have allowed a high 6.55 yards per target to running backs, which ranks as the sixth-highest mark in the league, and part of the reason they've allowed the 13th-most fantasy points through the air to running backs. The Broncos haven't seemed to take advantage of matchups like this, like when they played the Falcons a few weeks ago, a team that had been crushed through the air by running backs, but Gordon and Lindsay combined for just one catch. Considering Gordon played double the snaps that Lindsay did, Gordon would be the preferred option, though he's nothing more than an RB3. Meanwhile, Lindsay finds himself in RB4 territory.
