Game status: Phillip Lindsay is ACTIVE for Week 13.

Game day update: The Broncos expect Phillip Lindsay to play on Sunday against the Chiefs, per Ian Rapoport.

After missing practice on Wednesday, Denver Broncos running back was back on the field with his team on Thursday and Friday, getting in a full session to end the week. That points to him playing this week against the Kansas City Chiefs, though the team has listed him as questionable on the official injury report.

Fantasy impact: Phillip Lindsay (knee)

Lindsay had just 20 yards on nine carries last week in a weird game against the Saints. But the week before that he rolled up 82 rushing yards on 16 carries against the Dolphins. The last time he played the Chiefs, back in Week 7, he had 79 yards on just nine carries. Gordon still had the edge in that one—the Broncos have made it clear Gordon is the 1a in the rotation—with 68 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries.

It’s a tough week for the Broncos running backs, Lindsay and Melvin Gordon, regardless of their status. Lindsay is a RB3 or Flex this week.
