Denver Broncos rookie running back Phillip Lindsay was ejected in Week 3 against the Ravens for throwing punches during a scrum. Lindsay had four carries for 20 yards and didn’t record a catch before leaving. It becomes a frustrating day for his fantasy owners if they started him, but the long-term future looks bright for Lindsay, and he’s been a flex play so far to open the season. In his absence the rest of the way on Sunday, Royce Freeman and Devontae Booker should split the backfield workload.
