Summary

The Titans made a statement when they went out into the free agent market and signed Dion Lewis to a four-year, nearly 20 million dollar contract. Their offense struggled to both run and pass effectively last season and General Manager Jon Robinson feels Dion Lewis will be a big part of the plan to improve. The Titans will implement more spread and play action concepts into their offensive game plan - things with which Lewis is very familiar from his time in New England. What will be frustrating for fantasy owners is that the coaching staff has indicated they will vary how much Lewis and Henry are used based on the opponent, making their week-to-week outlook more difficult. Lewis can run between the tackles, but seems more suited for pass catching work because of his quickness on routes and elusiveness in the open field. It's reasonable to expect that Lewis' yardage and touchdown totals won't be what they were a year ago in New England. However, as the primary pass catcher for the Titans, he'll still have be a decent flex play. (May 15)
