Patriots' Dion Lewis: Logs nine carries in Super Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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: Strikes twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Patriots, who have plenty 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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 in 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 58 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 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.
