Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Lindsay has one of the best running back matchups in Week 15 against a very weak Chiefs team, but he hasn't really shown much upside this season. Over the past four weeks, he has one total touchdown and hasn't run for more than 67 yards. He's exactly what he has been all season: a high-floor, generally-low-upside RB2. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
The splits over the last four weeks have gone Lindsay 70 touches (62 carries, 8 receptions) and Freeman 32 touches (23 carries, 9 receptions). It still seems it's close to a 50/50 split once the gamescript goes south, which oddsmakers are expecting here with the Chiefs as 11-point favorites. In the two starts alongside Lock, Freeman has run 36 pass routes while Lindsay has run just 15 of them. It's almost like Lindsay is the Melvin Gordon of the offense, while Freeman is the Austin Ekeler (with much less efficiency). We saw this matchup earlier in the season where Freeman tallied 67 total yards and a touchdown on 14 touches while Lindsay had his worst game of the year, totaling just 32 total yards on 12 touches. The Chiefs have been one of the most generous teams in the league to running backs, allowing a massive 29.8 PPR points per game, which ranks second to only the Panthers. They've faced an average of 29.3 running back touches per game, so there should be enough work for both of these running backs (as there was in the first game) to go around. The 4.98 yards per carry they've allowed bodes well for Lindsay, as he's got almost a 2.5 to 1 edge over Freeman with early-down work. But it's worth noting that Lindsay averages 11.4 PPR points in losses and 15.6 points in wins. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Chiefs are 31st against fantasy running backs, Lindsay is an upside RB2 on the road in a great matchup this week.
