Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis rushed 10 times for 13 yards and caught five passes for 39 yards in a 30-9 over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14.

Footballguys view: Lewis got off to a hot start with a screen pass that could have been a long score, but then Derrick Henry took over. He did get a goal line carry late but couldn't convert. He's just bench depth heading into a matchup with the Giants.

Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis ran 10 times for 24 yards in the Week 11 game against the Indianapolis Colts and he had just one grab for eight yards.

Footballguys view: Lewis was featured early, but the Colts contained the Titans offense and then the wind went out of their sails when Marcus Mariota left the game. He'll be a flex play at best against the Texans next week.

Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis rushed for 91 yards on 13 carries against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 7. He also caught six passes for 64 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Lewis was back in top form as a receiver and runner and for the second time this year looked like a foundational piece for this offense. His usage and the offense's overall effectiveness are unpredictable, but he's healthy and looking good going into his bye. Lewis might help PPR teams get to the playoffs yet.

Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis rushed four times for no yards in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but he added nine receptions for 66 yards on nine targets.

Footballguys view: Lewis was a good play in PPR leagues with the Titans choosing to lean heavily on the passing game. He should be a solid PPR flex play against the Bills next week and going forward.

  Titans | Dion Lewis the preferred RB option in Week 1    Mon Sep 10, 12:41 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis out-snapped Derrick Henry 49-20, including a 14-0 advantage on third down in Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins. Lewis also saw six snaps in the red zone, compared to Henry's two.

Footballguys view: It's clear that Lewis has an edge in the pecking order. Fantasy GMs can trust him as a RB2, especially in PPR leagues. Henry's fantasy value is lower than that in this current role.

  Titans | Derrick Henry should lead backfield    Thu Jul 12, 01:07 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is expected to serve as the lead running back in 2018. He will split time with RB Dion Lewis, but Henry has been working to improve his receiving and pass protection in order to stay on the field more.

Footballguys view: With an ADP of 17th running back off the board, Fantasy GMs in early drafts seem less sure, and we don't blame them. The staff has implied they will vary his use quite a bit and unless Lewis has lost a step, Henry is likely to lose some third down touches to the free agent back. We do like what new offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur brings to the table in terms of spreading the defense out to create more lanes for his backs, but we are not sure Henry will benefit as much as he might have before Lewis showed up.

  Titans | Derrick Henry to lead team in carries?    Thu Jul 5, 09:46 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry could lead the team in rushing attempts and rushing yards this year, according to Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com, but McCormick said it 'isn't out of the question' that RB Dion Lewis finishes with more total yards.

Footballguys view: Lewis has been incredibly productive when healthy, and he appears to be healthy. So McCormick has a good point that while Henry could get more carries, Lewis could have more combined yards given his ability both running and catching the ball. Henry is tracking with an ADP of 17th back off the board while Lewis is going three rounds and ten backs later in drafts. It sounds very much like Lewis could have a lot of value based on position.

  Titans | Dion Lewis could lead backfield in yards    Thu Jul 5, 09:38 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis could end up with more all-purpose yards than RB Derrick Henry this season because of Lewis' ability as a receiver, in the opinion of Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com.

Footballguys view: Lewis has been a machine when healthy, and last year's 5 yard per carry average drove that point home coming off a 2016 where he was hurt. While the Titans are saying the amount of carries will vary game to game, between Derrick Henry and Lewis, we think Lewis will get a lot of work. His ADP is currently at 28, and we expect numbers to support that this year.

  Titans | Derrick Henry, Dion Lewis viewed equally    Tue Jun 5, 02:50 PM

Tennessee Titans RBs Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis are considered 1a and 1b in the eyes of offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur.

Footballguys view: Bad news for fantasy owners here, especially dynasty owners who have been hanging onto Henry waiting for the backfield to be his and his only. Lewis was added in free agency to split time in the backfield with Henry. While Henry is a powerful and swift back, Lewis is a compact runner who can create space with moves in the open field. Henry has a current ADP of RB17 (3.08) and Lewis is at RB28 (5.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Titans | Dion Lewis expects to be involved    Fri Apr 13, 09:38 PM

Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis said both he and RB Derrick Henry will be used in the running game. 'Derrick's a great back and I'm happy to be a part of the backfield with him, so I think we can form a pretty good one-two punch,' Lewis said.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are pretty much used to Henry sharing time in the backfield. It was with Demarco Murray and now it will be with Lewis. Because of his skill set, Lewis may be the primary receiving back for the Titans. This limits the value for both backs, so adjust accordingly in your draft.

  Titans | Dion Lewis officially joins Titans    Thu Mar 15, 03:34 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Dion Lewis (Patriots) officially agreed to terms with the Tennessee Titans Thursday, March 15. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but an earlier report stated that it is a four-year deal worth $20 million.

Footballguys view: A curious move by the Titans. Not because Lewis is a bad player, of course he's not, but because they have Derrick Henry already on the roster. Fantasy owners waiting for Henry to get a starter's workload as the bellcow are disappointed with this transaction. Henry and Lewis will mix in to some form of RBBC in 2018.

  Titans | Dion Lewis headed for Tennessee    Tue Mar 13, 09:23 PM

Free-agent RB Dion Lewis (Patriots) intends to sign a four-year deal with the Tennessee Titans, sources said Tuesday, March 13.

Footballguys view: Derrick Henry's fantasy owners are upset with this news. Lewis will work in a RBBC with Henry in 2018, and that complicates things for fantasy owners. He's more than just a change-of-pace back, Lewis can have great success toting the rock. We hope this doesn't turn into some sort of 'hot hand' approach in Tennessee.

The Indianapolis Colts are reportedly 'in' on New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Dion Lewis, according to NBC Sports Boston's Michael Giardi.

Footballguys view: The Colts could use a back like Lewis. He is one of the best all-purpose backs in the game and doesn't have to come off the field during passing downs. We're all for the Colts putting more weapons around QB Andrew Luck.

  Patriots | Multiple suitors expected for Dion Lewis     Sun Mar 11, 05:06 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Dion Lewis is expected to receive interest from the New York Jets, Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts in free agency this week, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, who also mentions the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders as potential suitors.

Footballguys view: Lewis is arguably the best back on the market. His all-purpose skill set is attractive to teams, especially as the game is evolving to the middle of the field. Guys like Lewis can create mismatches every time he's on the field as a receiver. Oh yeah, he's also a capable runner between the tackles.

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Dion Lewis is expected to receive interest from multiple teams this offseason, according to a source. The New York Jets, Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders and Indianapolis Colts are among the team that may pursue Lewis.

Footballguys view: It's all about versatility in today's NFL. Lewis is one of the best in the game as a runner and receiver out of the backfield. A team can look at him as a lead back, but they can also consider him an important part of a committee.

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Dion Lewis said he hopes to re-sign with the Patriots this offseason but will do what is best for him and his family.

Footballguys view: He didn't make it sound like he expected to be back with the Patriots. A lot of teams, including the Titans and 49ers, could use a back like Lewis. He should get the best contract of his career coming off of a strong finish to the season.

  Lions | Dion Lewis of interest to Lions?    Tue Feb 13, 02:27 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Dion Lewis may be pursued by the Detroit Lions if he does enter free agency, according to The Boston Globe's Ben Volin.

Footballguys view: The Patriots connections abound in Detroit. New head coach Matt Patricia and general manager Bob Quinn both worked for the Patriots, so a guy like Lewis makes for an easy fit. The Lions have had difficulty drafting a good running back, and even though this is a great draft class at the position, they may choose to go the free agent route to find their lead ball-carrier for 2018.

  Patriots | Dion Lewis on the way out?    Sat Feb 10, 09:52 PM

New England Patriots impending free-agent RB Dion Lewis plans to test the market unless he is offered around $10 million guaranteed as part of a three-year deal, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, and Howe said the 'early vibe' is that Lewis won't be back with the Patriots in 2018.

Footballguys view: The Patriots aren't known for throwing around money to running backs, so the vibe is likely correct. Lewis is arguably the best running back to be available on the open market this offseason with Le'Veon Bell likely staying with the Steelers.

  Patriots | Free agency decisions ahead for New England    Mon Feb 5, 01:55 PM

The New England Patriots face the prospect of losing several key free agents. The Patriots have to address key impending free agents in OTs Nate Solder, Cameron Fleming and LaAdrian Waddle, along with RB Rex Burkhead, WR Danny Amendola, CB Malcolm Butler, WR/ST Matthew Slater and RB Dion Lewis. New England is projected to have approximately $17 million in salary cap space. TE Dwayne Allen, TE Martellus Bennett, DT Alan Branch, LB David Harris and RB Mike Gillislee all could be released to create more cap space.

Footballguys view: Solder is their franchise left tackle, and there's not a lot of talent at the position in this free agent class. There is speculation that Solder will end up retiring.

  Patriots | Dion Lewis totals 66 yards in win    Sun Jan 21, 08:10 PM

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis ran nine times for 34 yards in the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he tacked on seven receptions for 32 yards on eight targets.

Footballguys view: Lewis wasn't a big factor after having a huge end to the season and big game as a receiver in the divisional round. He had a key fumble that appeared to be a fourth quarter turning point, but did redeem himself with a game-clinching run in the closing minutes. He should be a coveted free agent no mater how he performs in the Super Bowl.

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed 15 times for 62 yards and caught nine passes for 79 yards in a 35-14 win over the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Jan. 13.

Footballguys view: Lewis was lethal as a receiver and once again showed that he can be a true feature back handling 20+ touches in a game. He'll play a central role in the Patriots offense for as long as they last in the playoffs.

  Patriots | Week 17 game recap for NE    Sun Dec 31, 04:36 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady went 18-for-37 for 190 yards and two touchdowns against the New York Jets in Week 17. RB Dion Lewis rushed for 93 yards and one touchdown on 26 carries during the game and caught six passes for 40 yards and one touchdown. WR Brandin Cooks caught five passes for 79 yards and one touchdown, while WR Danny Amendola caught four passes for 43 yards during the game. TE Rob Gronkowski did not catch a pass during the game.

Footballguys view: Brady's production leveled off in December, which will deflate his 2018 redraft ADP. Rob Gronkowski finishes the season with 69 receptions. Dion Lewis finished the season producing at the same level as Todd Gurley, and he should be a high offseason priority for the Patriots in free agency.

  Patriots | Dion Lewis receives a lot of snaps    Mon Dec 25, 04:29 PM

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis played a season-high 51 snaps against the Buffalo Bills in Week 15. His previous season high was 33 snaps.

Footballguys view: Without Rex Burkhead in the lineup we saw Lewis get a much larger role. That should continue in the season finale in Week 17. Reports indicate Burkhead should be ready to return from his knee injury in the playoffs. The Patriots have a first-round bye, so he's got a couple more weeks to rest.
