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.

Patriots | Dion Lewis on the field

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 10:04:54 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots will have a few weeks to activate Lewis from the Physically Unable to Perform list, so he probably will not be rushed back to the lineup. He should be used as more of a receiver out of the backfield when he returns and will be a valuable fantasy option. Owners should look to add Lewis if he is available in their leagues.

Patriots | Dion Lewis to begin practicing

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 06:07:36 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) will begin practicing this week, and the team will have 21 days to activate him.

Fantasy Tip: He'll probably need a couple of weeks, but he should be stashed in your league. If by chance he's floating on waivers, grab and stash him.

Patriots | Dion Lewis' return not imminent?

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 10:50:25 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) was eligible to practice this week but did not, and the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe speculates "it's certainly possible Lewis' return isn't imminent".

Fantasy Tip: Lewis was always best viewed as a lottery ticket for owners with hopes of getting a second-half jolt, and the expectation has long been he could return after the team's Week 9 bye. That is still possible, although it is far from a given. This drama could go on for a little while longer, and New England could still end up ruling him out for the season. Owners in deep leagues should continue to hold, but those in shallow leagues without an IR spot may need to cut bait during the bye-week crunch.

Patriots | Dion Lewis unlikely to practice this week

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 09:51:17 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) "probably" will not practice this week, according to head coach Bill Belichick.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis is officially eligible to return to practice this week, but James White has performed admirably in his stead as the main passing-down back, so Belichick is probably willing to play this thing out a bit longer. Every indication so far out of New England is that the Patriots are treating Lewis with kid gloves, so a return after the team's Week 9 bye seems likely. Lewis is very much a stash-worthy player for owners hoping a boost right before the fantasy playoffs.

Patriots | Dion Lewis placed on PUP list

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 14:27:20 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) was officially placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Aug. 30. He will miss at least the first six weeks of the season.

Fantasy Tip: LeGarrette Blount and James White will likely comprise a two-headed monster in New England's backfield, at least to start the season. White will presumably take over Lewis's role in the passing game and should be viewed as an RB3 at worst in PPR leagues.

Patriots | Dion Lewis expected to miss two months

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 10:52:14 -0700

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) is expected to miss two months because of his second knee surgery and likely will start the 2016 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis will not be back on the field until late October at the earliest, so owners should drop him on their draft boards. Lewis could still be a late-round option in leagues, but owners will need to stash him on the bench. James White should fill Lewis' role on offense and likely will be a middle- to late-round option in fantasy leagues.

Patriots | Dion Lewis may play in 2016

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 10:04:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) is expected to have a chance to play in 2016 even though he will need to undergo another surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to look for a possible timetable after Lewis undergoes surgery. He likely will stay on the Physically Unable to Perform list and miss the first weeks of the season, but it is not known how long his rehab will be. Owners could consider using a later pick on Lewis and wait for him to return. James White should be more involved in the passing game and can be a middle- to late-round pick in drafts.

Patriots | Dion Lewis needs another surgery

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 09:42:35 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) will need to undergo another surgery on his knee, according to a source. There is no timetable for his return. Lewis originally tore his anterior cruciate ligament in November.

Fantasy Tip: It seems that Lewis likely will start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list and will miss at least the first six weeks of the season, which really hurts his fantasy value. James White likely will take over as the receiving option at running back and could be a middle-round option in point-per-reception leagues. White should also be considered as a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in standard leagues.

Patriots | Dion Lewis may start on PUP list

Sun, 21 Aug 2016 08:08:59 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) could start the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list if he is not able to participate in practice this week, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss. Lewis is doing well in his recovery but has not practiced since the start of training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis is coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, so the Patriots may want to give him more time to recover before he plays again. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation because Lewis could be a low-end No. 2 or solid No. 3 running back if he is ready Week 1. LeGarrette Blount and James White would receive a boost in value if Lewis misses the first six weeks.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount battling Tyler Gaffney?

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 10:42:01 -0700

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount is "likely" battling RB Tyler Gaffney the club's final running back spot. RBs Dion Lewis and James White "appear to be locked in" as the receiving running backs, while RB Brandon Bolden "figures" to have a spot on the roster thanks to his role on special teams. Blount and Gaffney are competing for the "between-the-tackles kind of role."

Fantasy Tip: Due to Blount's proven track record, you have to believe he has the leg up in this competition, though it's also interesting that Gaffney was able to take an entire series worth of carries in the first half of New England's most recent preseason game with the first-team offense. No matter who emerges from this battle, though, they may not hold much fantasy value, given the amount of pieces regularly being used out of the Patriots backfield, as well as Bill Belichick's sometimes unpredictable use of his running backs.

Patriots | Dion Lewis remains out

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 06:02:59 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) has yet to practice in training camp. Lewis is nine months removed from surgery to repair his anterior cruciate ligament and has continued to rehab.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis took part in OTAs in June, and there's no word of a setback. Agility is a big part of his game, and he still has the potential to be an RB2 in fantasy. However, with the way New England spreads the ball around based on matchups, he could slip into the RB3 area if he's out much longer.

Patriots | Dion Lewis thinks he can practice

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 06:26:00 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) believes he can practice right now, but the Patriots are taking things slow. It is not known if Lewis will start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list but it appears unlikely at this point.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis may not receive a lot of work during the preseason but should have a solid role on offense when he is healthy. He should be considered a solid No. 2 running back in point-per-reception leagues.

Patriots | Dion Lewis may open season on PUP list

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 10:04:22 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) might open up the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis, of course, suffered a torn ACL midway through last season as he was enjoying a breakout campaign, and unfortunately, it appears he's still hampered by it. It's also still possible he plays in Week 1, but owners need to keep an eye on this, as beginning the year on the PUP list would cost him the first six weeks. James White and Brandon Bolden would each receive boosts if Lewis remains sidelined.

Patriots | No setbacks for Dion Lewis

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 11:16:06 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) has not suffered any setbacks in his surgically repaired knee so far this offseason. The Patriots won't push him to return to action, though.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis will probably take it easy leading up to the regular season. New England is good about not taking any unnecessary risks, except for when it comes to air pressure in footballs, of course. If Lewis is at full health before the season starts, he'll be a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 consideration in PPR formats.

Patriots | Three notable Pats put on PUP list

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 16:13:35 -0700

New England Patriots WRs Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) and Julian Edelman (foot) and RB Dion Lewis (knee) were all placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Amendola has had trouble staying on the field throughout his career and is an untrustworthy fantasy football commodity. Leave him to the waiver wire in standard leagues. Keep an eye on Edelman's progress this fall, but if he's ready for Week 1, he should be firmly in WR2 territory with more intrigue in PPR leagues. Despite a strong season for Lewis in 2015 before his injury, his injury makes him extremely risky. Not to mention the fact he's never had more than 50 carries in a season in the NFL. He's running back depth in deeper leagues and could be a flex option in certain weeks in PPR formats.

Patriots | No brace for Dion Lewis

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 11:51:37 -0700

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) practiced Monday, June 13, without a brace on his left knee. Lewis said he feels better every day but that he still has a long way to go in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis was a PPR monster before suffering the injury last year. If he can return to full health then he'll be worth a look as a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 in PPR leagues.

Patriots | Dion Lewis back at practice

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 09:34:45 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) is back at practice for the first time Monday, June 13. Lewis is recovering from November surgery to fix a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis will likely be overvalued in drafts this fall because he's essentially New England's No. 1 running back. But keep in mind he probably won't be 100% by the time Week 1 kicks off, and he had just 234 rushing yards on 49 carries for two touchdowns in his first season with the Pats. Lewis is surely more valuable in PPR formats (36 catches for 388 yards), but be careful not to reach for him given his injury and the uncertainty that allows accompanies a New England backfield.

Patriots | Dion Lewis says rehab going well

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 08:07:45 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) said the rehab from his torn anterior cruciate ligament is going well and that he is doing what the trainers are allowing him to do. Lewis has not participated in offseason workouts and probably will miss the upcoming minicamp as well.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis may be limited during training camp but it is believed that should be ready for the start of the regular season. He should receive solid playing time in 2016 and will be used as a receiver out of the backfield. Lewis should be selected in all drafts but will have more value in point-per-reception leagues.

Patriots | Key Patriots absent Thursday

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:17:29 -0700

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (foot), RB LeGarrette Blount (knee), RB Dion Lewis (knee), WR Danny Amendola (ankle, knee) and TE Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) did not participate in organized team activities Thursday, May 26.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are infamous for their vague injury reports and resting of players. Obviously they're going to take caution with the players listed above, though. As long as none of these guys suffer any setbacks this offseason, they should be good to go for the start of the regular season. Edelman and Gronk should both be viewed as fantasy starters at their respective positions, with more value in PPR formats. Lewis is an RB2 candidate in PPR formats if he can stay healthy, while Blount has RB3 potential if he, too, can keep his health. Amendola is the biggest injury risk; he shouldn't be viewed as more than a low-end WR4 to high-end WR5.

Patriots | Dion Lewis optimistic for Week 1

Tue, 24 May 2016 08:30:41 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) has given signs of optimism for being ready for the start of the season. Some close to Lewis feel that he's about a month away from being able to play in a game. The team plans to be conservative with him, and his repetitions in organized team activities will be limited at best.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis emerged as a PPR gem before going down with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. However, he only rushed 10 times in a game once last season. So don't overvalue him. He's a solid RB3 if he doesn't have any setbacks.

Patriots | Dion Lewis recovering well

Sun, 21 Feb 2016 12:16:13 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis' (knee) recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament has impressed well-known surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who performed the surgery on Lewis late last year. When Lewis visited Andrews in January, things were exactly where they should be, if not better. Lewis will gradually work his way back this offseason, but the Patriots anticipate him being ready for the start of the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis took the NFL by storm last season before suffering the torn ACL. He was a No. 1 fantasy running back, too, averaging 17.5 fantasy points per game through seven games in PPR leagues. The Patriots' backfield will likely look a little different next season, but Lewis is still worth a shot as at least a RB2 if he's at full health.

Patriots | New England likely to add at RB

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 21:06:41 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White played 57 of the 83 offensive snaps in the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos Sunday, Jan. 24, and RB Brandon Bolden played 16. RB Steven Jackson rounded things out with 11 snaps. The team will also get RB Dion Lewis (knee) back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in 2016, while RB LeGarrette Blount is an impending free agent. The team might face an offseason similar to 2011 when the selected a pair of backs in the NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has the potential to be the top running back with this current group, with White and Bolden as solid backups. However, look for a rookie, and possibly a veteran running back, to be added in the offseason to provide competition.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount staying with Patriots?

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 13:50:08 -0800

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount could be on his way out of New England as he enters free agency this offseason. RB Dion Lewis (knee) will return from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and RB James White filled in nicely for Lewis. The Patriots also have another big back on their roster in RB Steven Jackson, putting Blount's future with New England in limbo.

Fantasy Tip: Gone are the days of Blount rushing for hundreds of yards and multiple touchdowns. The Patriots do need a ground-and-pound type of running back, but Blount may not be the answer for the future. This situation will play out over the course of the next few months, but Blount may be heading for fantasy irrelevancy.

Patriots | Dion Lewis placed on IR

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 14:35:17 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 9. Lewis is out for the year with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: James White and Brandon Bolden will be in line to take over Lewis's playing time as the Patriots' passing-down back. It's hard to tell right now who will be used more than the other, but both are worth a pickup if they're available in seasonal leagues.

Patriots | James White to replace Dion Lewis?

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 13:48:36 -0800

New England Patriots RB James White is the top candidate to replace RB Dion Lewis (knee) as the Patriots' passing down running back, according to ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss. RB Brandon Bolden will also be in the mix, and played well replacing Lewis in Week 9.

Fantasy Tip: Both White and Bolden are worth a waiver wire pickup if they're available. Bolden seems like the guy to own after yesterday, but White played as Lewis's successor two weeks ago when Lewis was sidelined. It may not be known who exactly will be the main successor to Lewis until the Patriots play their next game.

Patriots | Dion Lewis has torn ACL

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 10:44:17 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) will miss the rest of the 2015 season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: James White and Brandon Bolden likely will be more involved in the offense with Lewis out for the season. LeGarrette Blount should continue to receive most of the carries, but White and Bolden could be options in the passing game. Owners may want to wait a week to see which one receives more touches before considering one on FantasyScore.

Patriots | Good sign for Dion Lewis?

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 22:51:13 -0800

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) is scheduled to have an MRI Monday, Nov. 9. His anterior cruciate ligament is loose, which is not a good sign. However, he has no swelling yet, and that is considered a good sign.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis will miss time, so that's good news for the FantasyScore outlooks of LeGarrette Blount ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) and Brandon Bolden ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) going forward.

Patriots | Dion Lewis set to have MRI

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 15:36:27 -0800

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) left the Week 9 game against the Washington Redskins due to a knee injury. The team will not know the full extent of his injury until he has an MRI, but the hope is he has a medial collateral ligament sprain and nothing more severe.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) already has had one ACL injury in his career, so hopefully this doesn't turn into his second such injury. Either way, LeGarrette Blount ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is likely to see more touches with Brandon Bolden ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) re-emerging as a pass-catching option out of the backfield.

Patriots | Dion Lewis won't return

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 12:12:35 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) will not return versus the Washington Redskins after suffering a non-contact knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: This could be a serious injury for Lewis; non-contact injuries don't usually bode well. Again, if Lewis misses time, LeGarrette Blount should immediately be picked up if he is available. James White could also see an increased role in the passing game.

Patriots | Dion Lewis injured in Week 9

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 12:04:15 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) left with a left knee injury in Week 9 against the Washington Redskins. Lewis went down without contact and was looked at by trainers after walking off the field under his own power.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has played an integral role in the Patriots' undefeated season. If Lewis misses any extended time, LeGarrette Blount would be the undeniable featured running back, and James White could take over as the passing down running back.

Patriots | Julian Edelman, Dion Lewis will play

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 14:19:05 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) and RB Dion Lewis (abdomen) were both limited in practice all week, but both are listed as probable for Week 9 against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: The 'Skins secondary is certainly beatable, making Edelman ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) worth paying up for in daily universes. Lewis ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) remains hard to pass up for that price, especially since New England may call his number often in order to beat Washington's strong defensive front.

Patriots | Julian Edelman, Dion Lewis limited

Thu, 05 Nov 2015 13:52:51 -0800

New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman (knee) and RB Dion Lewis (abdomen) were limited participants in practice Thursday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: These two will really need to be monitored heading into the weekend, although it is promising that they have both at least practiced, even though they've been limited. Edelman ($8,200, 16.4% of cap) would have a better matchup than Lewis ($6,800, 13.6%) as the Washington Redskins have been much more lenient against the pass than the run. Again, look for updates on Edelman and Lewis before Sunday's game.

Patriots | Dion Lewis limited Wednesday

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 16:05:54 -0800

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (abdomen) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) was also limited last week with the abdomen injury and still played and performed well. The Washington Redskins may pose a tougher test, though, as they have only allowed three touchdowns to running backs.

Patriots | Dion Lewis productive in return

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 20:49:41 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Lewis ($6,700 13.4% of cap) saw the most snaps of any back in his return, and he continues do more than enough damage in the passing game to warrant a starting spot at FantasyScore.

Patriots | Dion Lewis will play vs. Miami

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 16:09:54 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (abdomen) is active Thursday night against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins have been a completely new team, and defense, over the last two games. Lewis ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) is somewhat of a risky play tonight, plus LeGarrette Blount ($5,300, 10.6%) will be taking some playing time away from him. Still, Lewis should be involved in the passing game, so he has more value in PPR scoring formats.

Patriots | Dion Lewis listed as questionable

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 13:55:32 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (abdomen) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 28, and is listed as questionable for the Week 8 game against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Oct. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) probably will be a game-time decision for the game, so owners will need to check the inactive list. Lewis will be a risky option since he missed the last game and is facing a short week, so owners should have other options ready to use.

Patriots | Dion Lewis to be game-time decision?

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 12:21:58 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis' (abdomen) status for the Week 8 game against the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Oct. 29, remains up in the air, and head coach Bill Belichick said the team will find out Thursday if he can play. RB James White played 64% of the snaps in Week 7 to RB LeGarrette Blount's 12% as the Patriots went with a spread offense.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Lewis ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) plays, he could find his snaps limited with White filling in against the Dolphins. It's already difficult enough to predict New England's backfield utilizations on a week-to-week basis as it is. Lewis is a pretty risky daily pick this week.

Patriots | Dion Lewis limited again Tuesday

Tue, 27 Oct 2015 14:55:36 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (abdomen) was limited during a laid-back walkthrough practice Tuesday, Oct. 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's a good sign that Lewis ($6,700, 13.4% of cap) is practicing in advance of a short week against the Miami Dolphins. However, it's a big risk choosing him on FantasyScore with only a few extra days to recover after sitting out in Week 7, plus the New England backfield is always tough to predict.

Patriots | Dion Lewis listed as limited

Mon, 26 Oct 2015 14:03:02 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (abdomen) was limited during practice Monday, Oct. 26. The Patriots did not practice, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis missed the last game because of his injury, so owners should monitor his situation over the next few days. The Patriots be playing the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Oct. 29, which does not give Lewis a lot of time to prepare for the game. Owners may want to consider other options because of Lewis' uncertain status.
