    Titans' Dion Lewis: Another disappointing performance

    Dion Lewis carried the ball 10 times for 24 yards in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Colts. He also added one catch on two targets for eight yards.Lewis wasn't able to get anything going against the Colts despite once again leading the Tennessee Titans' backfield in touches. His failure on the ground was not a major departure from the majority of the season, though his lack of involvement in the passing game was a letdown. His two targets tied for his lowest of the season, but he has now seen only a pair of targets in consecutive games. While it appeared that Lewis was poised for another big second half of the season, his performance across the past two weeks calls his viability as a lead back into question.

    Titans' Dion Lewis: Outplayed by Henry in win

    Dion Lewis rushed 20 times for 57 yards and caught both of his targets for 11 more in Sunday's 34-10 win over the Patriots.Lewis got twice as many touches as Derrick Henry, but Henry had the better fantasy day by virtue of scoring two touchdowns. While Lewis' versatility gets him the majority of work, Henry's bulkier frame is more effective near the goal line. Considering Henry has four touchdowns in the past three weeks, he's likely to keep cutting into Lewis' value against the Colts in Week 11.

    Titans' Dion Lewis: Tops 120 scrimmage yards while scoring

    Dion Lewis rushed 19 times for 62 yards and caught all four of his targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 28-14 win over the Cowboys.Lewis saw teammate Derrick Henry score a one-yard touchdown to start the night, but along with finding the end zone on an 18-yard screen pass on the Tennessee Titans' next drive, it was Lewis who would dominate the proceedings. In fact, he was handed more than three times the amount of carries Henry got (six). While his average of under 3.5 yards per rush wasn't great, Lewis' total of over 120 yards from scrimmage fueled Tennessee's victory and could earn him another healthy workload against his former team (the Patriots) in Week 10.

    Titans' Dion Lewis: Should stay busy after bye week

    Offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur said the backfield workload split will probably continue to skew more toward Dion Lewis rather than Derrick Henry when Tennessee returns from its Week 8 bye, Jim Wyatt of the Tennessee Titans' official site reports.LaFleur clarified that Lewis' role on passing downs naturally leads to more playing time, something that wouldn't necessarily be the case on a team with a winning record and positive point differential. Of course, the Titans have fallen far short of expectations so far, averaging just 15.1 points per game while getting off to a 3-4 start. A better overall team would lead to more scoring opportunities, but the current situation does at least give Lewis a nice chance to stay on the field. He produced a season-high mark of 155 scrimmage yards in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Chargers, bumping his year-long averages up to 10.4 carries and 4.1 catches per game. It's about what was expected from him in terms of workload, but he's scored just one touchdown in seven games while averaging 3.8 yards per carry and 6.9 per catch. Things have been even worse for Henry, who has one touchdown and six receptions to go with a per-game rushing average of 12 carries for 39 yards. Lewis gets a tough matchup after the bye week, facing a Dallas defense that has limited running backs to 3.5 yards per catch and 6.0 yards per target through seven weeks.

    Titans' Dion Lewis: Surpasses 150 total yards

    Dion Lewis rushed for 91 yards on 13 carries in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Chargers. He also added six receptions for 64 yards.Lewis had a number of impressive runs Sunday, highlighted by a key 31-yard attempt late in the fourth quarter that helped set up the Tennessee Titans potential game-winning score. He also added a 21-yard reception, matching the team's longest passing play of the day. Despite being a superior option to Derrick Henry both on the ground and in the passing game through seven contests this season, opportunity out of the team's backfield remains a near even split. However, with the Titans on a three-game slide and entering their bye week, they may look to make a change, with Lewis being a potential beneficiary.

    Titans' Dion Lewis: Ineffective again

    Dion Lewis rushed for nine yards on five carries in Sunday's 21-0 loss to the Ravens. He also added two receptions for five yards.Lewis was out-touched by Derrick Henry despite a game script that called for passing. However, the entire Tennessee Titans' offense failed to get on track, resulting in Lewis' worst yardage output of the campaign. After recording a season-best nine receptions in Week 4 against Philadelphia, he has just five receptions across his last two games. Lewis' involvement in the passing game had given him a reliable floor in PPR leagues early on, though even that has been called into question in recent weeks.

    Titans' Dion Lewis: Suffers from inefficient performance

    Dion Lewis rushed for 34 yards on 12 carries and added three catches for 14 yards during Sunday's 13-12 loss to the Bills.Lewis led the Tennessee Titans' backfield in touches for the second consecutive game and third time in five contests this season. However, that didn't lead to a big Week 5 performance, as he averaged just 2.8 yards per carry and 4.7 yards per catch. He also fumbled in the middle of the third quarter, leading to a Bills field goal that put the Titans down 10-6. Overall, Lewis has managed just 143 rushing yards across five games, though his 18 receptions keep him relevant as a flex option. Like many of the Titans' skill-position players, Lewis is being held back by the underperforming Marcus Mariota and conservative offensive approach.

    Titans' Dion Lewis: Consistent threat in passing game

    Dion Lewis has made an impact in the Tennessee Titans passing game, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.Lewis hasn't made much of an impact on the ground, racking up only 143 yards through four games. However, he has 18 receptions on 21 targets, putting him on pace for a 72-catch season. That's enough to keep him relevant on a weekly basis in point-per-reception leagues, even if he has yet to break off many big gains.

    Titans' Dion Lewis: Totals 66 yards

    Dion Lewis was held for no yardage in four carries, but picked up 66 yards on nine catches during Sunday's 26-23 win over the Eagles.On 4th-and-2 with Tennessee looking for the win, as opposed to a tie, in overtime, Marcus Mariota dropped the ball off to Lewis, who turned upfield for a game-altering 17-yard gain. Lewis, like his stable partner Derrick Henry, has struggled on the ground with a 3.3 yards-per-carry average this season, 1.4 yards below his career average. Henry and Lewis each have two games leading the duo in yardage, but Lewis, unlike Henry, has scored this season and can be a consistent threat in the passing game. Among the two underperforming options, Lewis seems like the better bet against a middle-tier Buffalo defense next Sunday.

    Titans' Dion Lewis: Plays second fiddle to Henry in win

    Dion Lewis rushed nine times for 26 yards and caught all three of his targets for 14 more in Sunday's 9-6 win over Jacksonville.Lewis has come back down to earth after a sizzling Tennessee Titans debut, combining for just 68 rushing yards on 23 carries over the past two weeks. Derrick Henry has amassed 113 yards on 36 carries over that same span, suggesting Lewis is the inferior option on the ground. Still, Lewis is the significantly better receiving back, and that ability should allow him to play a sizable role against the Eagles next week.
