Denver’s Phillip Lindsay might just be the best undrafted rookie running back ever.
Lindsay, who had a dominant performance in Sunday’s win over the Bengals, now has 937 rushing yards through 12 games this season. That puts him on pace for 1,249 yards this season. The all-time record for an undrafted rookie is 1,104 rushing yards, set by Dominic Rhodes in 2001 with the Colts.
Setting that record would be a sweet ending to the year for Lindsay, who told Peter King he was extremely dejected when he went undrafted.
