Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner's system is throwing a lot of passes to the running back position so far this offseason. RB Trent Richardson caught 51 balls last year, but RBs Dion Lewis and Montario Hardesty have also shown the ability to catch passes.
Fantasy Tip: Watch how the pass distribution and playing time on third downs plays out in the offseason, particularly the preseason. Richardson could see fewer passes come his way in 2013.

The Cleveland Browns feel confident WR Travis Benjamin and RB Dion Lewis can handle the return duties, which is why fan favorite WR Joshua Cribbs (Raiders) (knee) was allowed to leave via free agency without much effort to re-sign him. Plus, Cribbs is 30, and there are concerns about his knee.
Sun, 19 May 2013 18:31:05 -0700
The Cleveland Browns like the speed of RB Dion Lewis, especially as a third-down back. Lewis might also be in the mix to return kicks.
Fantasy Tip: As far as fantasy value, Lewis has very little considering he is behind Trent Richardson, Montario Hardesty and Chris Ogbonnaya on the depth chart. If injuries or a trade changes that picture, and Lewis scoots up the chart, he might be worth a look in fantasy football.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said RB LeSean McCoy (concussion) won't have his "normal workload" in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins. RBs Bryce Brown and Dion Lewis will rotate in at running back. "He's coming off an injury. I understand that, so I'll keep a close eye on him," Reid said. "He'll work in as a starter and then Bryce has some valuable experience that he's gained over the last few weeks, so we'll get him in there." McCoy said he felt a bit rusty while practicing Wednesday, Dec. 19.

And I am excited about that."

Philadelphia Eagles RBs Bryce Brown and Chris Polk will get their chance to show what they can do during training camp and the preseason. It's likely the team only keeps three running backs, and RBs LeSean McCoy and Dion Lewis are one-two on the depth chart.
Tue, 26 Jun 2012 19:33:38 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is the unquestioned starter up top, but it remains to be seen if RB Dion Lewis could step up and fill his role should McCoy miss any time due to injury. If that scenario occurred, the team might be hesitant to lean on Lewis, and they might use more of a committee approach. Lewis saw just 42 offensive snaps during his rookie season last year.
Mon, 04 Jun 2012 22:50:26 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Dion Lewis has been working hard during the offseason to fill the role of primary backup to RB LeSean McCoy.

At the same time, you've got to show it in practice by not making mistakes and making plays," Lewis said Monday, June 4.

Philadelphia Eagles RB Dion Lewis carried nine times for 60 yards in the Week 17 game against the Washington Redskins, which was a breakthrough performance for the guy who is expected to be the primary backup to RB LeSean McCoy in 2012. He finished with 102 yards on 23 carries in his rookie season, averaging 4.4 yards per carry. In the past 25 years, only two Philadelphia rookie RBs Correll Buckhalter (4.5 - 2001) and Ryan Moats (5.1 - 2005) had a higher per-carry average, based on a minimum of 20 carries.
Sun, 01 Jan 2012 08:52:55 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) is not active in Week 17 against the Washington Redskins.
Fantasy Tip: That all but certainly makes Maurice Jones-Drew the NFL's rushing champion, as Adam Schefter also notes. Ronnie Brown and Dion Lewis will presumably split the work. Neither is a particularly attractive play given the uncertainty about how much each will touch the rock and the limitations of his abilities, but if you're desperate for a flex player, why not? Brown is the likelier candidate for goal-line touches.
