Phillip Lindsay is on the Broncos’ final injury report for Week 9. We break down what it means for fantasy football roster decisions.

Game status: Lindsay is ACTIVE for Week 9, per Ian Rapoport.

Game day update: Lindsay is expected to play in Week 9, per Ian Rapoport.

Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay is listed as questionable on the official Week 9 injury report. He hurt his foot last week against the Chargers. After a limited practice on Wednesday, Lindsay was a full participant for the rest of the week. Despite the injury designation, he will play this week.

Fantasy impact: Phillip Lindsay (foot)

Lindsay only had six carries last week against the Chargers, but he spun them into 83 yards and a touchdown. The week before that, he had 79 yards on nine carries. Despite Melvin Gordon getting more rushing attempts, Lindsay has been the better back, by far. He’s averaging more than six yards per carry, compared to just over four for Gordon. We’ll see if that translates into more work this week.

With Lindsay expected to play this week, he is definitely worth a spot in your fantasy lineup given how well he’s running right now.
