Patriots | Dion Lewis hurt his hamstring

Mon, 06 Feb 2017 05:21:38 -0800

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (hamstring) injured his hamstring late in Super Bowl LI. Lewis said the injury didn't seem severe.

Fantasy Tip: After James White's historic performance, it's worth pondering if he has leapfrogged Lewis. Both are comparable backs, but White is two years younger with less injury baggage. If Lewis lands elsewhere, he could be a decent RB2 in PPR leagues.

Patriots | Dion Lewis goes down

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 19:19:39 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) appeared to injure his knee against the Atlanta Falcons on the final play of regulation in Super Bowl LI Sunday, Feb. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis missed a good portion of the season while recovering from a knee injury, and a serious injury at this point would put at least a portion of his 2017 season in jeopardy. Stay tuned for updates.

Patriots | New England undefeated with Dion Lewis

Tue, 31 Jan 2017 15:23:11 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis has missed 14 games as a Patriot the last two seasons, but the Patriots are 16-0 in games in which Lewis has been active.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has been dynamic for the Pats when he has played. The undefeated record with Lewis is no fluke. He and LeGarrette Blount proved to be a solid 1-2 punch for New England this season in the seven games Lewis was a part of. Look for the shifty running back to be utilized in space against the Atlanta Falcons in the Super Bowl. Lewis will be a PPR sleeper if he remains healthy this offseason.

Patriots | Patriots are 16-0 when Dion Lewis plays

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 21:15:14 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis has never been part of losing effort since joining the club in 2015. In fact, in 16 total games, including the postseason, the Patriots are a perfect 16-0 when Lewis suits up.

Fantasy Tip: It's a pretty cool stat to think about, although it's probably more coincidental than anything else. Regardless, Lewis has shown he can be a huge factor in any given contest, and while his usage declined in the AFC Championship Game compared to New England's Divisional Round affair, it's still very possible he makes a considerable impact in what should likely be a high-scoring Super Bowl 51.

Patriots | Dion Lewis a non-factor

Sun, 22 Jan 2017 19:22:33 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed six times for 11 yards and caught two passes for eight yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22.

Fantasy Tip: After a three-touchdown effort a week ago, Lewis was barely part of the game plan. The Patriots have him under contract in 2017; he's a sound PPR target as a weekly flex consideration.

Patriots | Dion Lewis does it all

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 20:46:20 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis had 13 carries for 41 yards and a touchdown, two catches for 23 yards and a touchdown and returned a kickoff for a touchdown in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, becoming the first player in postseason history to have a rushing, receiving and return touchdown in the same game.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis didn't have a touchdown during the regular season, but now that he is healthy, his versatility and upside are on full display.

Patriots | Dion Lewis back at practice

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 08:27:46 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

Fantasy Tip: The Miami Dolphins pose a good matchup for Lewis, who has averaged 17 carries the last two weeks. He's not catching the ball as much as you'd like, but he's a low-end RB2 this week.

Patriots | No practice for Dion Lewis

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 14:06:19 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (illness) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis should be able to play in Week 17 as long as he can recover from his illness. He has been more involved in the running game over the last few weeks and has at least 50 yards in the last two games. He should have a similar role this week and can be a flex option in some leagues.

Patriots | Dion Lewis leads team in rushing

Sat, 24 Dec 2016 13:48:33 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed for 52 yards on 16 carries against the New York Jets in Week 16.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis received a lot of carries because the team had a big lead in the second half and ran the ball a lot. It is not known how much playing time he will receive in Week 17 but could be a flex option in some leagues.

Patriots | Dion Lewis gets it going

Mon, 19 Dec 2016 05:22:41 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed 18 times for 95 yards and caught two passes for nine yards Sunday, Dec. 18, against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: It's the most action he has seen all year as he and LeGarrette Blount split the carries down the middle. Lewis becomes the back with the most upside for the Pats in fantasy, but Blount should continue to see RB2 value with his 15 touchdowns.
