    Titans' Dion Lewis: Gets $5.75 million fully guaranteed

    Dion Lewis' four-year, $19.8 million contract with the Tennessee Titans contains $5.75 million fully guaranteed and another $2.5 million guaranteed for injury only, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.While he had an argument to be considered the top running back in free agency, Lewis ultimately signed a contract much smaller than Jerick McKinnon's deal with the 49ers and landed with a team that already has an established power runner in Derrick Henry. The Titans likely plan to deploy a dual-threat backfield with Lewis handling passing-down work and mixing in on early downs while Henry serves as the main thumper on early downs and near the goal line. The 27-year-old Lewis played double-digit games for the first time since 2011 last season, taking 180 carries for 896 yards (5.0 average) and six touchdowns and catching 32 of 36 targets for 214 yards (5.9 per target) and another three scores. He'll have a hard time replicating the rushing and scoring production if Henry stays healthy, but Lewis' role as a pass catcher should increase. Lewis displayed his ability in that department back in 2015, when he caught 36 of 50 targets for 388 yards (7.8 per target) and two scores in only seven games.

    Dion Lewis: Heading to Tennessee

    Dion Lewis intends to sign a four-year deal with the Titans, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.The Titans land their second former Patriot of the day, just a few hours after it was announced that Malcolm Butler was heading to Tennessee. Lewis will serve as half of a one-two punch in the backfield alongside Derrick Henry, a similar role to that of DeMarco Murray over the past two seasons. Last season, Lewis carried a team-high 180 times for 896 yards and six touchdowns and caught 32 passes for 216 yards and another three scores in New England.

    Patriots' Dion Lewis: Primed for free agency

    Dion Lewis appears unlikely to re-sign with the New England Patriots this offseason, Michael Giardi of NBC Sports Boston reports.Lewis was reportedly frustrated with his usage early last season and again during the Patriots' Super Bowl loss to the Eagles, but he did enjoy a busy and productive stretch from Weeks 6 to 16, averaging 14.6 carries for 72.5 yards with eight total touchdowns in 11 games. Prior to the playoffs, Lewis didn't get much work in the passing game, an area where he shined back in 2015, notching 36 catches in seven games. Coming off the first 16-game season of his career, the 2011 fifth-round pick is widely viewed as the top free agent at his position, with his lack of a big contract in the past suggesting he'll likely go to the highest bidder. New England still has James White and Mike Gillislee under contract, though the latter could end up as a cap casualty.

    Patriots' Dion Lewis: Logs nine carries in Super Bowl

    Dion Lewis carried nine times for 39 yards in Sunday's 41-33 loss to the Eagles in Super Bowl LII.Lewis logged 21 (of a possible 76) snaps on offense Sunday, while sharing backfield duties with James White (45 snaps) and Rex Burkhead (nine snaps). During the regular season, Lewis carried a team-high 180 times for 896 yards and six TDs, while also catching 32 passes for 216 yards and another three scores in the air. The 27-year-old is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and while we'd expect that the New England Patriots would like to keep their leading rusher around, that will only happen on their own terms financially. Lewis' 5.0 yards per carry were indicative of his effective running in 2017, but at five-foot-8 and 195 pounds, durability has been an issue throughout his career.

    Patriots' Dion Lewis: Seals win with key run

    Dion Lewis rushed nine times for 34 yards and brought in seven of eight targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 24-20 AFC championship game win over the Jaguars. He also lost a fumble and gained 34 yards on two kickoff returns.The New England Patriots' lead back didn't see much work on the ground, with game flow making the passing attack a priority, particularly in the second half. Lewis also lost control of the ball after hauling in a 20-yard pass from the arm of Danny Amendola on a fourth-quarter trick play. Despite the miscue, the 27-year-old did play a key role through the air, as he drew even with Amendola for the team co-lead in receptions. Lewis also picked an optimal time for his longest run of an afternoon in which he was consistently stuffed near the line of scrimmage, squirting loose for an 18-yard jaunt on 3rd-and-9 with 1:30 remaining and the Jaguars still holding on to their final timeout. The scamper essentially sealed the victory and punched a ticket to Super Bowl LII for New England, a game in which Lewis will look to see an uptick in rushing opportunities.

    Patriots' Dion Lewis: Strikes twice

    Dion Lewis rushed for 93 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries and added 40 yards and a touchdown on six receptions during Sunday's 26-6 win over the Jets.Lewis helped put New England up by three scores in the closing moments of the first half when he took a dump-off into the flat for a five-yard score, his second touchdown of the game. Lewis started the season off sluggish with just one game with at least 80 total yards in his first nine games, but he's heating up at the right time. He's topped the 80-yard mark six times in the seven games since and has five touchdowns in his last three outings. Look for him to keep that going in the playoffs.

    Patriots' Dion Lewis: Could have sizable workload Sunday

    Dion Lewis could handle a larger share of the backfield snaps than usual Sunday against the Jets with Rex Burkhead (knee) and Mike Gillislee (knee) ruled out and James White (ankle) not expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.Lewis has regularly served as New England's top ball carrier this season, but he's ceded much of his responsibilities in the passing game to Burkhead and White, while Gillislee's number has occasionally been called in short-yardage situations. With special-teams standout Brandon Bolden the only healthy backup running back on the roster, it's likely that Lewis will be asked to fill a three-down workload for the New England Patriots, who have something to play for in Week 17 with the No. 1 seed in the AFC at stake. With that in mind, Lewis looks like a must-start option in active season-long leagues and a strong building block for DFS lineups.

    Patriots' Dion Lewis: Rushes for 129 yards Sunday

    Dion Lewis carried 24 times for 129 yards and a TD and caught all five of his targets for 24 yards and another score in Sunday's 37-16 win over the Bills.With the New England Patriots minus Rex Burkhead (knee) and James White (ankle), Lewis saw added opportunities Sunday, while Mike Gillislee returned to the team's backfield mix, carrying six times for 28 yards and a TD and catching one pass for 15 yards. Assuming the Patriots have something to play for Week 17, which seems likely, Lewis will be in line to head the team's ground attack against the Jets next Sunday.

    Patriots' Dion Lewis: Scores go-ahead touchdown

    Dion Lewis rushed 13 times for 67 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Steelers. He also caught one of two targets for 13 yards.Lewis wasn't much of a factor until the fourth quarter, when he ripped off multiple chunk gains before scoring the go-ahead touchdown on an eight-yard run with 56 seconds remaining. His continually modest workload has now led to just one touchdown and an average of 58.7 rushing yards per game since a 112-yard explosion against the Dolphins in Week 12. However, teammate Rex Burkhead suffered some sort of knee injury Sunday and could miss time moving forward. Such a development might lead to increased touches for Lewis in Week 16, when the New England Patriots travel to Buffalo to face a Bills defense that's allowed the most rushing touchdowns and second-most rushing yards in the league this season.

    Patriots' Dion Lewis: Just five carries in loss

    Dion Lewis rushed five times for 17 yards and caught all five of his targets for 50 yards in Monday night's 27-20 loss to the Dolphins.Lewis had been given double-digit carries in seven straight games entering Monday's contest, but with the New England Patriots unable to establish a ground game, they turned to passing 43 times. Fortunately for Lewis, he was able to salvage some production through the air, with his output in receiving categories marking season highs. The tailback will hope this Sunday's game against the Steelers, whose defense struggled without Ryan Shazier (spine) in Week 14, will enable him to bounce back running the ball in the city he attended college.
