Outlook

The highlight of Marcedes Lewis 8 year career will always come back to his 2010 season where he caught 58 passes for 700 yards and 10 touchdowns. Since then his production has went way down hill and it may be a result of just poor quarterback play all together. Lewis has limited upside but has some nice size and can go up and make a tough catch and bail his quarterback out. That is something that might have to counted on going forward as the Jaguars QB situation has Chad Henne coming back for another chance and a brand new rookie Blake Bortles possibly forced into action. Lewis' best bet for a back to fantasy relevance would be if he can be a force once again in the redzone and make the tough catches.

Packers | Green Bay falls in NFC title game (Sun Jan 24, 06:24 PM) - Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 33-of-48 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the NFC Championship Game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Aaron Jones, who left the game early due to injury, left the team with 27 yards on six rushes. RB Jamaal Williams ran seven times for 23 yards and added four receptions for 22 yards. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the way with a game-high 115 yards on four receptions and a score, while WR Davante Adams had nine grabs for 67 yards and a score on 15 targets. WR Allen Lazard checked in with three receptions for 62 yards, while TE Marcedes Lewis had three grabs for 28 yards. TE Robert Tonyan also checked in with four grabs, 22 yards and a score. CB Jaire Alexander led the way with two interceptions, while totaling three total tackles and three passes defensed.

Our View: Rodgers had a lot of chances to take control of this game in the second half after his team fell behind 18 points, but the Packers offense wasn't good enough in the red zone and Matt LaFleur chose to kick a field goal instead of going for it on fourth and goal at the 8, down 8 with about two minutes left. Jones has probably played his last down as a Packer, and Williams is also a free agent. Valdes-Scantling had a big game after playing only one snap the NFC title game last year. Adams impact on the game was not as big as expected and if anything Rodgers overreliance on him in the red zone hurt the team. The Packers will go back to the drawing board after getting one game from the Super Bowl two years in a row.

Packers | Wednesday injuries from Green Bay (Wed Jan 20, 05:25 PM) - Green Bay Packers LB Krys Barnes (thumb), PK Mason Crosby (shoulder), RB AJ Dillon (quadriceps), DL Kingsley Keke (concussion), TE Marcedes Lewis (knee), LB Za'Darius Smith (thumb), WR Equanimeous St. Brown (knee, ankle), OT Ricky Wagner (knee) and RB Jamaal Williams (ankle) were limited at practice Wednesday, Jan. 20. S Will Redmond (knee) practiced in full.

Our View: Keep an eye on Dillon and Williams in the backfield as the week of practice continues. Both are key players behind starter Aaron Jones and can bring some power to the field as runners, plus Williams can work effectively as a receiving back.

2013 Game Summaries

Week 7 - On the Jaguars first third down of the game, Lewis caught a pass in traffic over the middle of the field before breaking tackles and running down the field for a huge gain. Lewis wasn't heavily involved, but Henne tried to find him in the end zone during the third quarter. Lewis rose above a defender, but couldn't hold the ball at full extension.

Week 8 - Lewis didn't have a catch until the fourth quarter. He settled down underneath on a crossing route to make the catch, but Patrick Willis was able to force the ball free from him for a fumble that went for a touchdown in the other direction.

Week 10 - Marcedes Lewis' first reception came in the first quarter as he ran a shallow out route. Lewis spun away from the first tackler, before breaking multiple tackles down the sideline for a big gain. Lewis didn't see the ball again until the third quarter, as he caught a short out route on first and 10. In the fourth quarter, Lewis caught a five yard curl route on third and 10.

Week 11 - Lewis caught the first pass of the day. He took a bubble screen down the sideline for nine yards. Lewis caught a screen pass in the third quarter, but his blocking never got out in front so he was forced to evade a tackle before escaping for a nine yard gain. Lewis caught a quick pass in the flat for seven yards in the third quarter.

Week 12 - Lewis' first target came in the second quarter. He caught the ball on a crossing route before turning down the sideline for a first down.

Week 13 - On the second play of the game, a second and three, Lewis caught a screen pass for a first down. Lewis' next reception went for a touchdown as he caught the ball from Maurice Jones-Drew on a trick play. In the fourth quarter, Lewis caught a first down pass from Henne on an out route.

Week 14 - Lewis wasn't targeted on the first drive until the very end, when he caught a touchdown pass. Henne threw a fade route to him that allowed him to go up and get the ball over the defender. To end the first quarter, Lewis made an outstanding play on a backshoulder throw down the seam. He was bracketed by two defenders but reached back to the ball and pulled it in before continuing downfield for a big gain.

Week 15 - Lewis immediately had a big play in the first quarter. On a play that was beautifully designed by offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, Lewis was wide open over the middle for a big reception. With Cecil Shorts out, it appeared that the Jaguars were going to focus on their star tight end. However, on the very next play, Henne underthrew his tight end going across the field for an interception. If the Jaguars were looking to feature Lewis early on, they failed to. His next reception came late in the first quarter for a first down on third and short. Lewis didn't feature again until the fourth quarter, when he caught a screen pass for a touchdown. On the next drive, he caught a quick out route for seven yards.

Week 16 - Ever since he recovered his health earlier in the season, Lewis has been a very effective receiver. He hasn't been used enough, but reminded everyone of his talent again in the first quarter of this game. Lewis scored a touchdown for the fourth straight game after winning a jump ball at the goal line, but he also made an impressive reception against tight coverage down the seam to help the offense get there. Henne tried to find him again early in the third quarter, but underthrew the ball. In the fourth quarter, Henne checked down to Lewis in the flat and he made another play that suggests he is criminally underused. Lewis evaded a defender to get to the first down marker in space.

Week 17 - Lewis has typically taken advantage of his opportunities when they have come his way this season. However, he had two drops on his first two targets in this game. He did eventually make his first catch a few plays after his second drop, as he brought in an eight yarder for a first down by the sideline. Lewis did finish the game with three receptions for 70 yards. He had one huge play on a screen pass that was terribly defended by the Colts. He caught the ball with blockers out in front, but didn't really need them as he sprinted down the sideline unopposed for 36 yards. His final reception was more impressive, as he ran down the seam and caught the ball over a defender for a first down.
