Phillip Lindsay has been stuck in a timeshare with Royce Freeman all season, but according to one Week 11 pregame report, the Denver Broncos may opt to feature the 2018 breakout back more heavily against the Minnesota Vikings.

Lindsay has seen just 118 carries through nine games, which is still more than Freeman's total of 93 rushes. Lindsay has been far more efficient with his totes, averaging 4.9 yards per carry to Freeman's 4.0 mark. Lindsay also has five rushing touchdowns to Freeman's two scores.

The Broncos have a tough matchup against the Vikings, who give up the fifth fewest fantasy points to opposing backfields. Still, Lindsay is expected to be fed often and early in today's game, which should bode well for his fantasy production in Week 11 and beyond.

Lindsay, who was quoted as saying "I don't fear anybody" about this Week 11 opponent, makes for a strong RB2 against the Vikes, and a sneaky DFS play as many will probably avoid his name due to the matchup. He is the 24th ranked RB in our Week 11 PPR rankings.
