Lindsay joins a backfield with David Johnson at the top of the depth chart and newcomer Mark Ingram also in the mix. That said, Lindsay is used to sharing RB reps with others after three seasons in Denver, especially last year when he took a backseat to Melvin Gordon. For his career, Lindsay has averaged 4.8 yards per carry, hauled in 77 of 109 targets and scored 18 touchdowns in 42 contests.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

Despite a productive college career at Colorado and a sub-4.4 40 at his pro day, Lindsay went undrafted last year thanks to his 5-8, 190-pound frame. He stayed close to home with an offer from the Broncos, and after thoroughly outplaying Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker in preseason, Lindsay seized the lead role and put together the best campaign by a rookie back in Denver since Clinton Portis in 2002. Lindsay’s speed, burst, toughness and receiving skill make him a strong fit for any NFL offense, and while his lack of top-shelf elusiveness makes him a bit of a magnet for contact, his compact frame left defenders taking the worst of it until he suffered a broken wrist Week 16. The fact that he was productive behind an injury-riddled offensive line bodes well for 2019 if the unit stays healthy, but the biggest reason to think Lindsay could improve in his second season is the addition of offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello, a product of Kyle Shanahan’s coaching tree. Shanahan’s system is tailor-made for versatile RBs, so that likely spells more snaps in the passing game for Lindsay, without any loss of touches on the ground.

Lindsay collected 4,859 total yards and 39 touchdowns at Colorado and ran a 4.39 40-yard dash at his pro day. He still didn’t get an invite to the Combine or hear his name called on draft weekend. Early on, he seems like a good bet to add to Denver’s legacy of undrafted free agents. He should get his first taste of action as a kick returner, but his speed and receiving ability adds a unique element to Denver’s backfield.
