Lewis finished 2020 with only 29 carries and 19 catches. That the 30-year old made little impact even after Saquon Barkley was lost for the year tells you what you need to know. He might catch on somewhere in 2021, but the end of the line is probably near.
Lewis rushed once for 15 yards in Sunday's 27-13 loss to the Ravens. Lewis played 24 snaps on offense, his highest number since Week 2, but he still logged just one touch. The veteran running back hasn't recorded more than five touches in a game since September, as Wayne Gallman has been the clear-cut lead back.
Lewis rushed once for four yards and caught both targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 20-6 loss to the Browns. Lewis started the game with a bang, returning the opening kickoff for 48 yards and setting up a strong opening drive for the Giants. However, he logged just one touch before the fourth quarter, as he was largely left out of the offensive game plan while Wayne Gallman and Alfred Morris combined for 16 carries. With Devonta Freeman (ankle) designated to return from IR as well, Lewis faces long odds to garner meaningful reps in New York's backfield this year.
Lewis collected 14 yards and a touchdown on two carries, adding 84 yards on four kickoff returns while losing one fumble during Sunday's 26-7 loss to the Cardinals. Though Lewis punched in the Giants' only TD of the contest, his fumble on a second-quarter kickoff return cost New York dearly. Kyler Murray would connect with Dan Arnold for an Arizona TD four plays after the turnover en route to a 13-0 halftime lead. Lewis has taken back 15 of the Giants' 27 kickoff returns in 2020, though with his Week 14 gaffe, Darnay Holmes (knee), Darius Slayton and C.J. Board may garner more serious consideration in the role down the stretch. Lewis continues to take a back seat to Wayne Gallman in the running game, as New York prepares for a Week 15 Sunday night showdown against Cleveland.
Lewis rushed three times for six yards in Sunday's 17-12 win over the Seahawks. New York's running backs accounted for 29 carries, 188 rushing yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win, although most of that work went to Wayne Gallman. Lewis finished with just 12 snaps on offense. He hasn't handled more than five touches in a game since Week 2 against Chicago. Gallman is the only dependable Giants back for fantasy purposes.
