Patriots | Lackluster showing from Dion Lewis on MNF

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 22:08:37 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis finished with 17 rushing yards on five carries in the team's Week 14 loss Monday, Dec. 11, against the Miami Dolphins. He also added five catches for 50 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Well, luckily, Lewis was able to give a little something in the passing game, but other than that, this was a gigantic step back for the 27-year-old, who was really coming into his own as of late. In fact, he had plated 204 yards collectively over the prior two contests. Despite this outing, Lewis is still a fine RB2 option, drawing double-digit rush attempts on most weeks while still being active through the air.

Patriots | Dion Lewis has prime matchup

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 07:25:34 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis will face the Buffalo Bills in Week 13, and they've allowed the most points per game to running backs the last five weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The Bills have been so bad against backs, they're allowing 5.0 yards per rush and two rushing scores per game. They've allowed six points more per game than any other team during the stretch. Lewis is coming off his best game in two years, and there could be plenty of garbage time to rack up yards. Lewis is a good RB2 this week in fantasy.

Patriots | Dion Lewis runs for 112 yards

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 17:03:14 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed 15 times for 112 yards in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis also tacked on a catch for one yard on his two targets. He posted at least 11 touches for the sixth consecutive game, as he remains a solid RB3 or flex fantasy option in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 13.

Patriots | Dion Lewis leads the charge

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 05:08:44 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed 14 times for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 win over the Denver Broncos. He also returned a kickoff 103 yards for a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: He has averaged a little more than 13 rushes per game over the last four games and clearly looks to be the lead dog in the rushing attack. He'll be an inconsistent play because if he doesn't get in the end zone, he probably won't have enough rushing or receiving numbers to be a big factor. He's a decent flex option against the Oakland Raiders next week.

Patriots | Dion Lewis won't be traded

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 13:15:39 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis has received trade interest from several undisclosed teams, but he is not expected to be traded, according to NFL Network's Michael Lombardi.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots do have what appears to be a surplus of running backs with Lewis, Mike Gillislee, James White and Rex Burkhead. Apparently they want to keep their committee intact. Lewis has been running well of late which makes it harder for the Pats to part ways. White remains New England's best fantasy back regardless of who's traded or not, but Lewis deserves flex consideration.
