Summary

While he made it back for the tail end of the season and the playoffs, Dion Lewis missed an awful lot of 2016. That could put him a bit under the radar in a crowded and cloudy backfield. While durability is a worry, Lewis has shown he can run the ball well off the edge and is a deadly weapon when receiving a pass. The biggest question - and one which wasn't answered fully when he returned from his knee injury - is whether or not he has the speed and quickness which made him such a dynamic playmaker for part of 2015. If he still has it, and he can stay off the trainer's table, Lewis can be a big part of the offense. Do keep in mind, though, this is a committee and no one back is likely to carry a full load.
