What a year it was for Denver Broncos rookie running back Phillip Lindsay.

He piled up 1,037 yards rushing, the second-most in NFL history for an undrafted rookie since the 1970 NFL merger.

It was also the sixth-most rushing yards in a season for a Broncos rookie.

While a late-season wrist injury will prevent him from playing, Lindsay made the Pro Bowl and became the first undrafted offensive rookie in NFL history to do so.

He averaged 5.4 yards per carry, third in the NFL.

Now, he's also up for the VIZIO Top value Performer award, which goes to the player whose on-field performance most exceeds the value of his contract.

Others vying for the honor include:

Blake Martinez, LB, Green Bay Packers

Chris Carson, RB, Seattle Seahawks

Tyler Boyd, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

Kenny Gollday, WR, Detroit Lions

Fans can vote online at www.VIZIO.com/TVP until January 20th to select the winner of the award, which is in its 12th year. Saints RB Alvin Kamara was last year’s winner.

We caught up with Phillip on Wednesday, Jan. 8 and talked about the Broncos coaching search, how his wrist is feeling, his season and the VIZIO Top Value Performer award.
