Summary

The outlook for Lewis was largely optimistic in 2018, but Lewis fell well short of expectations due to a variety of factors. Key injuries and the abrupt exit of a starting receiver from the team left the offense ineffective for vast stretches of the year. Add the late emergence and backfield takeover of Derrick Henry and Lewis' year was a bitter disappointment for fantasy general managers. 2019 looks brighter for Lewis only from the perspective that his supporting talent is healthier and the run blocking should be improved with the addition of left tackle Roger Saffold. Head Coach Mike Vrabel has already indicated that Derrick Henry will be the lead in the committee and that Lewis will be the "complement." Lewis should not be counted on as more than a low-end flex option. (April 19)
