Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay has been dealing with a knee injury leading up to his team's Week 13 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. However, the latest update on Lindsay is that he'll be ready to go on Sunday, which keeps his Week 13 fantasy outlook steady.

Phillip Lindsay Fantasy Outlook

Lindsay and Melvin Gordon have shared backfield duties for the Broncos this season, with neither able to pull away and earn a workhorse role. Lindsay has averaged a solid 10.3 rushing attempts and 51.8 yards per game over eight contests this year.

Lindsay's lacking pass-catching role has resulted in him often drawing fewer snaps per game than Gordon, limiting his fantasy upside (especially in PPR leagues). Lindsay has produced like a bottom-barrel RB option while competing with Gordon for touches, averaging just 6.4 fantasy points per game.

With Lindsay healthy enough to suit up in Week 13, fantasy managers likely already know what to expect, which is to say: not much at all. If you're looking for an RB option to help you make the fantasy playoffs, look elsewhere.
