Lindsay was largely shut down last week in San Francisco, but salvaged his day with a rushing touchdown. It marked just the third time all season Lindsay has been held below 79 scrimmage yards, so his owners shouldn't fret. He'll be a mid-range RB1 for the Broncos' Week 15 matchup with the Browns, who allow the sixth-most fantasy points to RBs.

8 TDs in last 7 gamesCAR 10 TD over last 6 games to WR

CLE has allowed two rush TDs to RBs in 3 of last 5Panthers have allowed two TDs to opposing WRs in 4 of past 6
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
 Thomas has gone three games without a touchdown and nine of his last 10 games without reaching 100 yards. His luck could change, as the Panthers have allowed 90 yards and a touchdown to six receivers in the last five games. New Orleans's top wideout maintains a stellar 28.4 percent target share and 86.4 percent catch rate. The season's WR4 is a top-shelf play even if September's earth-shattering upside has dissipated.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Cleveland is just 28th against fantasy running backs, Lindsay should have RB1 value this week at home. Carolina is just 24th against fantasy wide receivers, Thomas should have a monster game this week.
