Phillip Lindsay has been an absolute revelation for the Denver Broncos this season. After Royce Freeman got all the preseason hype as a potential rookie sleeper, it's been Lindsay who's carried the load for the Broncos and probably swung some fantasy leagues in the process. 


He's been so good that he's nearing historic rookie production for an undrafted player. 

Lindsay currently has 154 carries for 937 yards and 8 touchdowns on the year and is on pace for 1,249 yards by the end of the season. That would put him well above Dominic Rhodes' 1,104 yards in 2001. 


Lindsay has been particularly dominant since the Broncos' Week 10 bye.

In those three games, Lindsay has 45 carries for 346 yards and 5 touchdowns and the Broncos have gone 3-0. Lindsay is not only winning people fantasy matchups, but he's also dragging his team back into the actual playoff race in the AFC. 


Lindsay only needs about 200 yards to set the record, and his next three games are against the 49ers, Browns and Raiders. Lindsay might rush for 200 a game against those opponents. The Broncos are in great shape for a playoff run and Lindsay is looking like a top contender for Rookie of the Year along with Saquon Barkley.
