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.

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.
