WR Greg Lewis - Minnesota Vikings
|6-0, 180||Born: 2-12-1980||College: Illinois||Drafted: ---|
2010 Week 1 vs NO (2 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
When all else failed, Lewis made an appearance in the 4th quarter and snagged one ball for 12 yards. Both Lewis and Camarillo entered the game late after the Vikings primary receivers failed to deliver. Favre appeared more confident with Lewis and Camarillo than he did with Percy Harvin and Bernard Berrian on the outside. This may be something to monitor going forward as the season progresses.
2010 Week 2 vs MIA (4 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)
Lewis made a great effort on a couple of balls, in limited action. Though he didn't see the field for much of the game, he was targeted three times in the final drive, and appeared to be Favre's best chance out there.
2010 Week 3 vs DET (4 / 3 / 30 / 0 rec)
Lewis continues to see extended action with Sidney Rice on the bench. Harvin is the 'go to' guy and Berrian still doesn't seem to be on the same page as Favre. Lewis was Favre's first target of the game, and he had a nice grab down the left side of the field for 14 yards. He worked the middle and sidelines for the rest of the game, finishing with two short receptions for minimal gains. Lewis was also the target of a Favre pass early in the third that was picked off. However, Farve was hit as he threw the ball and it floated over the middle of the field where it was picked off. Until Basket or Camarillo step up, Lewis will be the #2 WR for the Vikings for the next several weeks.
2010 Week 5 vs NYJ (2 / 1 / 33 / 0 rec)
All Lewis does is make big plays. His 33 yard play late in the 4th quarter was instrumental in keeping the Vikings hopes alive late in the game, setting up Favre's 3rd TD pass.
2010 Week 6 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Lewis was only on the field for passing downs. He is buried on the depth chart for the Vikings, and the addition of Randy Moss takes away any potential fantasy value that Lewis may have had.
2010 Week 9 vs ARI (6 / 4 / 30 / 0 rec)
No last second heroic catch for Greg Lewis today, but he had a solid contribution for a fired up Vikings offense. Most of his catches were short completions to move the chains, but Lewis is another player who can be a solid contributor for this offense even if he isn't a starter.
2010 Week 10 vs CHI (3 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Lewis looked to have little to no chemistry with Favre and had a hard time connecting with him, often having passes over or underthrown his way. Lewis is another possession orientated receiver for Favre in an offense that needs dynamic play makers and Lewis could find himself on the sideline should the Vikings receiving corps get healthy once again.
2010 Week 11 vs GB (4 / 2 / 40 / 0 rec)
Lewis's first catch was a big one along the sideline, as Favre hit him perfectly in stride for a 29 yard gain, bringing the Vikings to the 11 yard line. A couple of plays later he was targeted on a crossing pattern near the goal line, but let the ball slip through his fingers. Lewis was targeted on another short route and nearly caught the ball, but was hit hard and couldn't hang on. In the third quarter, he made a short third down catch, which is not enough for the first down but does put them close enough to set up a long field goal attempt.
2010 Week 14 vs NYG (3 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec)
Lewis was targeted three times on the final drive. All short passes. Two receptions for minimal gains. Talk about garbage time.
2009 Week 16 vs CHI (1 / 1 / 27 / 0 rec)
Lewis only had one reception, but it was key. Favre directed him to his left, and Lewis caught the strike in stride and turned upfield to set up the first game-tying TD of the fourth quarter.
2009 Week 17 vs NYG (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Fourth wide receiver Greg Lewis had just one target in the third quarter against the Giants in Week 17.
2008 Week 1 vs STL (7 / 5 / 104 / 0 rec)
Lewis was McNabb's third option today behind rookie Jackson and LJ Smith. McNabb showed confidence in Lewis completing 5 passes for 104 yards. The longest catch was for 52 yards immediately following a Rams punt that had pinned the Eagles deep in their own end. This killed any chance the Rams had to stop the bleeding and possibly change the momentum of the game.
2008 Week 2 vs DAL (5 / 3 / 36 / 0 rec)
Lewis caught a 17 yard pass across the middle for a first down early in the first quarter for his only catch of the first half. Lewis did have a few scoring opportunities later in the game. He got open deep behind the coverage and may have had a touchdown, but the Cowboys' defender was able to get his fingers on the pass and tip it away. QB Donovan McNabb tried to go back to Lewis again on the next drive on a deep pass into the end zone. Lewis did not catch the ball, but did draw a questionable pass interference penalty. Lewis almost had a touchdown in the fourth quarter when he caught a 13 yard pass and was tackled just before the goal line.
2008 Week 5 vs WAS (3 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)
Lewis contributed one reception for 22 yards. McNabb overthrew him on one of his targets, but Lewis could have caught the pass. He returned a pooch kick at the end of the first half for 31 yards, nearly breaking it for a potential touchdown.

Lewis first grab of the game came on a third down play and resulted in a 15 yard gain that moved the chains. On his first touchdown catch from 28 yards out, Lewis showed tremendous concentration in leaping up to make the catch despite having a defender right in his face. His third catch of the game came in the second quarter and went for 27 yards. Lewis' final reception went for his second touchdown of the game came from seventeen yards out.
2007 Week 13 vs SEA (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Lewis caught both balls that came in his direction. The first was a 12 yard reception for a first down just before halftime. The second was of similar length, a 13 yard catch in the fourth quarter, but it was big at the time as it allowed the Eagles to get one of only two fourth quarter first downs.
2006 Week 3 vs SF (5 / 2 / 31 / 0 rec)
Lewis was able snare two catches for 31 yards. He dropped a couple of balls which hit his hands and lost a critical fumble in the first half before the games was put away.

2006 Week 5 vs DAL (3 / 2 / 32 / 0 rec)
Lewis was a forgotten receiver until the second half. He had three targets in the final 30 minutes, converting the last two for a 24 yard and an eight yard reception, respectively, in the fourth quarter. Both catches were also good enough for first downs.

2006 Week 7 vs TB (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

2006 Week 11 vs TEN (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Lewis caught both his targets, and both were good for 13 yards.
2006 Week 13 vs CAR (2 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec)

First, he caught a 13 yard pass on third down and 11 to go on Philadelphia's opening drive, and the later came back to pick up 16 yards and another first down in the second quarter as the Eagles positioned themselves for a last second field goal before halftime. Those were Lewis' only targets, as he was not involved very much in the second half.
2006 Week 17 vs ATL (7 / 4 / 52 / 0 rec)
Lewis got open down the left sideline at the start of the second quarter on his first passing target, but backup QB A.J. Feeley missed him well short. Midway through the second quarter Feeley drilled Lewis with a very sharp twelve yard slant to start a drive. On the following drive Lewis made an outstanding grab stealing the ball away from the defensive back. Feeley lobbed the ball down the left sideline where the defensive back had great inside position. Lewis adjusted coming back to the ball leaping over the top of the cornerback to make the grab putting the Eagles on the Falcons' five yard line. Just before halftime Lewis made a nice diving attempt at a pass and caught a different eight yard hitch. He was open on a deep out on the final attempt from Feeley in the first half, but the pass was well overthrown.
2006 Week 19 vs NO (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Lewis had two targets against the Saints, both coming in the second half. Lewis was the intended recipient of two deep passes, one each in the third and fourth quarters, that would have picked up about 20 yards each for Philadelphia but neither was completed. The first pass sailed over Lewis' outstretched arms, and the second was a sideline out route that led Lewis by about one step too far.
2005 Week 1 vs ATL (9 / 5 / 44 / 0 rec)
Lewis started opposite WR Terrell Owens. His seven yard reception on third and three during the Eagles final drive was a nice reception. He was hit immediately as he caught the ball but hung on to keep the drive alive.
2005 Week 2 vs SF (7 / 4 / 39 / 1 rec)
Lewis is emerging as one of McNabb's favorite deep targets. Lewis caught four of the seven balls thrown his way for 39 yards and a touchdown.

Lewis's touchdown catch came on a six yard pass from McNabb on which he made a nice leaping grab before diving across the goal line.

Lewis was also overthrown badly on a deep sideline route on which he had beaten his defender. He did have a bad drop on a pass that went through his hands in the red zone in the fourth quarter.
2005 Week 5 vs DAL (7 / 3 / 36 / 0 rec)
Lewis was targeted early by McNabb, getting a chance on a deep ball that sailed just past him that would have been a 60 yard reception. The catch was not easy as he was both closely defended and the ball came out of the shadows and into the bright sunlight.

He was targeted three times in the second half, but none were catchable.

2005 Week 8 vs DEN (4 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Lewis caught two passes of 15 yards, yet only one of them stood up on review. Both of his catches were low and close to the ground and both were reviewed.

Lewis was also the intended receiver on a deep pass in the second quarter and also a short pass in the same quarter that was deflected by the defense and intercepted by DB John Lynch, who was actually covering WR Terrell Owens.
2005 Week 9 vs WAS (7 / 5 / 57 / 0 rec)
Lewis strung together 57 yards on five catches but did not find the end zone. He made a nice catch in the fourth quarter on a play where he was absolutely drilled in the middle of the field.

2005 Week 10 vs DAL (5 / 3 / 42 / 0 rec)
Lewis did not make his first catch of the game until the fourth quarter. On the same drive, he was targeted on a deep sideline pass that he was unable to hold onto.

He finished with 42 yards on three receptions.
2005 Week 11 vs NYG (7 / 3 / 64 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Lewis started his day with a leaping one handed catch for 25 yards as he was looking back directly into the sun. Lewis added another catch of 34 yards in the second quarter and another for five in the fourth.

2005 Week 12 vs GB (4 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Lewis started the game despite being questionable with an elbow injury. Like the rest of his receiving corps, Lewis failed to make any big plays. He finished with just one catch for nine yards. Lewis was targeted in the end zone by a scrambling McMahon, but the ball was thrown out of bounds. He was also targeted on a deep sideline route, but the ball landed just out of his reach.
2005 Week 13 vs SEA (6 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
Lewis had a very tough game. In the first quarter he was targeted on a comeback route that was undercut, intercepted, and returned for Seattle's first defensive touchdown. John Madden remarked that Lewis made no effort to fight off the defender to prevent the interception. Lewis was targeted later in the game on a deep post, but the ball was knocked away by the defender. Again Madden jumped on Lewis for failing to make a play on the ball. Lewis also had a bad drop on a short pass at the end of the game.
2005 Week 14 vs NYG (6 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Lewis did little to win favor with his fantasy owners in this contest. On the first play of the game he was targeted on a deep post pattern, but the ball hit him in the hands and fell to the ground. He dropped another ball that was thrown slightly behind him in the middle of the field. His first and only catch of the game was a big one, as it converted a third down in overtime.
