Lewis saw backfield mate Derrick Henry explode for 238 rushing yards Thursday, so he was essentially left with a handful of leftover carries and a solid amount of pass-catching work. The veteran back has failed to top 36 rushing yards in four consecutive contests, and he hasn't found paydirt on the ground since the opener. Henry's stellar effort Thursday would seemingly dampen Lewis' even further, but coach Mike Vrabel has been unpredictable in how he's divided the backfield workload this season. Lewis will look to improve his numbers against the Giants in a Week 15 interconference tilt.
Lewis carried the ball six times for a total of 36 yards in Sunday's 26-22 win over the Jets. He also added two receptions for minus-2 yards.
Lewis posted a season-high 20 carries in Week 10 against New England but has steadily seen his workload decease since. That didn't change Sunday, when he saw a total of eight touches -- his lowest mark since the Titans' contest against Baltimore in Week 6. His lack of involvement in the passing game is especially concerning, and he has logged two or fewer receptions in three of his past four contests. Given his dearth of touchdowns, his fantasy floor appears limited at the moment.
Lewis rushed seven times for eight yards, but caught all seven of his targets for 33 yards in Monday night's 34-17 loss to the Texans.
Lewis was stymied rushing the ball against a swarming Houston front seven. Over the past two games, he's now managed just 32 rushing yards on 17 attempts, a concerning late-season trend. With Lewis struggling, Derrick Henry led the Titans with eight carries, but gained just 30 yards and lost a fumble in the game's waning moments. While Lewis compensated somewhat by hauling in all his looks in the passing game, posting his second-best catch tally of the campaign, his poor recent form hurts his value ahead of Week 13's meeting with the Jets.
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 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 effectiveness going forward into question.
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.
