NFL Week 2

Denver Broncos DfS Spin

Broncos RB Phillip Lindsay (toe) won't play in Week 2 against the Steelers. It remains unclear if Lindsay will miss any time beyond Week 2. Sunday makes for a terrible matchup against Pittsburgh's front-seven, which limited Saquon Barkley to six yards on 15 carries in Week 1, but Melvin Gordon did out-snap Royce Freeman 22 to 6 once Lindsay exited on Monday night. Gordon still qualifies as a usage-based RB2/3 despite the terrible matchup.

Pittsburgh Steelers DFS Spin

Steelers RG David DeCastro (lower body) won't play in Week 2 against the Broncos. Stefan Wisniewski (pectoral) and RT Zach Banner (torn ACL) are also out, pushing Chuks Okorafor and rookie Kevin Dotson into Pittsburgh's starting lineup. James Conner (ankle) and JuJu Smith-Schuster were cleared from the team's injury report. It's possible Conner walks right back into a bell-cow role following Monday's injury but it's tough to predict with Benny Snell exploding off the bench. Both runners are expected to face clogged lanes against Denver given the Steelers' absences up front.
