Summary

Before he was injured, Dion Lewis was having a ridiculous season. Coming off a torn ACL, we're not 100 percent sure if he'll have the same speed and explosion once he gets the ball in his hands, but if he can be even a fraction as quick and fast, he could pick up right where he left off. The uncertainty of his ability once healed, as well as the fact that he will definitely split time with LeGarrette Blount on early downs, makes his value a bit uncertain. We're waiting to see how healthy he is, because we firmly believe if he's back to normal, he will be a very productive back. (May 20)

Patriots | No brace for Dion Lewis (Mon Jun 13, 02:51 PM) - 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.

Our View: The team will continue to monitor Lewis closely as he returns from the knee injury that cut his 2015 season short. If healthy, Lewis is a dynamic runner who can make explosive plays as a receiver too. His current ADP is RB15 (4.03) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Patriots | Dion Lewis back at practice (Mon Jun 13, 12:34 PM) - New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) is back at practice for the first time Monday, June 13.

Our View: Getting Lewis back is a huge boost for the Patriots offense. He can make plays as a runner in space or as a receiver out o the backfield. Lewis has the speed and foot-frequency to make field-flipping plays on most any touch. We'll be monitoring his continued recovery closely. Lewis is recovering from November surgery to fix a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
