Patriots | Three Patriots RBs split snaps evenly

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 16:22:57 -0800

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount received 27 snaps during the team's Week 12 game, while RB James White received 26 snaps and RB Dion Lewis received 23 snaps. The Patriots ran three plays with White and Lewis on the field at the same time.

Fantasy Tip: Blount received the most carries against the New York Jets and probably will continue to be the main running option moving forward. Lewis received six carries and caught four passes, while White caught four passes and received zero carries. Blount should be considered a No. 2 running back in most leagues but will not be as valuable in point-per-reception leagues. Lewis and White should be flex options for most owners.

Patriots | Eight touches for Dion Lewis

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 22:23:07 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed five times for 23 yards in the Week 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He also added three grabs for 26 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis is worth adding in deeper PPR leagues, as it appears the team will try and get him involved in the offense. He and James White will fight for scraps behind LeGarrette Blount.

Patriots | Dion Lewis active for Week 11

Sun, 20 Nov 2016 12:28:19 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis is officially active for the team's Week 11 game.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis will be playing his first game of the season and probably will have a limited role against the San Francisco 49ers. Owners may want to see him play in a game before considering him for their lineups, but he should have value late in the season.

Patriots | Dion Lewis travels with team

Sat, 19 Nov 2016 09:25:19 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) traveled with the team for their Week 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: There is a solid chance that Lewis will be active for the game, but he probably will see limited playing time since he has missed the first 10 weeks of the season. Owners may want to avoid Lewis this week, but he should be a starting option over the last six weeks of the season.

Patriots | Dion Lewis appears to be fully healthy

Mon, 14 Nov 2016 10:21:59 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis was inactive for the team's Week 10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, but head coach Bill Belichick indicated during a conference call Monday, Nov. 14, that Lewis is fully healthy after undergoing two knee surgeries since November of 2015. "We didn't activate him (off the Physically Unable to Perform list) until Saturday, but he wouldn't have been on the injury report. When a player hasn't played for a year, they haven't played for a year," Belichick said.

Fantasy Tip: The writer poses an interesting "guess" and suggests Belichick did not want to use yesterday's game - which figured to be a tight game against a quality opponent - to break Lewis in, but rather Week 11 against the one-win San Francisco 49ers - an opponent against whom the Patriots should control game script and score. Expect several updates in the coming days, but it makes sense Belichick would use a game against San Francisco to ease in Lewis.

Patriots | Dion Lewis' status for Week 10 uncertain

Sun, 13 Nov 2016 09:34:03 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) has been medically cleared to play but it remains uncertain whether he will be active for Week 10's game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Lewis is active for the Sunday night game, he is unlikely to play an important role in the offense, with both LeGarrette Blount and James White currently ahead of him on the depth chart. Avoid using Lewis in all formats this week.

Patriots | Dion Lewis activated

Sat, 12 Nov 2016 13:20:44 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Nov. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis' return isn't likely to have a big impact in Week 10. However, it could spell a portion of doom for LeGarrette Blount owners. Lewis is sure to cut into Blount's impressive work, but both should remain RB2-worthy. James White's role is sure to be negatively impacted, too, but he remains a flex option this week while Lewis is expected to have restrictions.

Patriots | Dion Lewis 'nasty' in practice

Sat, 12 Nov 2016 10:53:45 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) has yet to be cleared for Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks, but at least one teammate isn't doing anything to stop the hype surrounding what most expect to be his season debut. "He's nasty in the open field. It doesn't make any sense," said running back LeGarrette Blount, who also added Lewis has been so electric in the open field during practice that he is an unfair matchup for opposing safeties.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots need to make a decision Saturday afternoon if they want Lewis active for Week 10 and the team is almost certain to limit his touches even if he does play, especially with James White filling his role so well. With that said, Lewis is a true difference-maker and it doesn't figure to take very long before he's the best New England back to own in fantasy. Owners should keep him benched this week unless they are truly desperate at running back, but he could easily be a second-half fantasy stud.

Patriots | Dion Lewis back in Week 10?

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 18:50:32 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) could make his season debut in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: While a definite return date has yet to be determined, Lewis should be stashed in all formats. Once he is back at full strength, he has RB2 potential in PPR formats.
