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 | Dion Lewis optimistic for Week 1 (Tue May 24, 11:30 AM) - New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) has given signs of optimism for being ready for the start of the season. Some close to Lewis feel that he's about a month away from being able to play in a game.

Our View: Lewis showed last year just how productive he could be in this system before he went down with this injury. The team will be wisely cautious with him, and his repetitions in organized team activities will be limited at best. If healthy, we see Lewis as a RB2 with RB1 upside in the Patriots high-powered offense.
