Lewis snagged four of five targets for 46 yards during Sunday's 30-10 win over the Colts.
The catch total tied a season high for Lewis. The veteran tight end has not been much of a receiver in recent seasons but is showing some consistency as of late. He has either scored or topped 40 yards in four of his last six games. Paired with his stranglehold on the starting job, seeing the field for 56 of 66 offensive plays on Sunday, Lewis is becoming a weapon to be reckoned with in Jacksonville.
Lewis had one catch for 10 yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Cardinals.
Lewis blew up in the Jaguars' Week 3 win over the Ravens with four catches for 62 yards and three touchdowns, but he's been mostly an afterthought in his subsequent outings, notching no more than two catches in seven of his last eight games. The 33-year-old has been targeted only four times in the last two weeks combined.
Lewis reeled in both of his targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-7 win over the Browns.
Lewis faked as though he was blocking on a play-action pass in the first quarter and then slipped out for a 10-yard touchdown, the Jaguars' first score of the game. The touchdown was Lewis' second in the past four games and fifth of the season -- the second most of his career. Even though Lewis ranks just sixth on a bottom-10 passing team in catches, he has three more touchdowns than any other Jaguars target. His production is getting hard to ignore.
Lewis (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation heading into Sunday's game against the Browns.
Lewis was listed as a limited participant in each of the Jaguars' practices this week, but the fact that he isn't listed as questionable heading into the weekend suggests his workload may have been restricted for maintenance purposes rather than out of legitimate concern about the knee injury. The 33-year-old tight end is set to make his 150th career start Sunday, tying him for the second-most caps in franchise history. With cold conditions projected to hit Cleveland on Sunday, the Jaguars may neglect the passing game more than usual, thereby limiting the veteran's already modest upside.
Lewis (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.
The Jaguars have monitored Lewis' practice reps through the first two days of the week, but there has been no indication from the team that the knee issue will put the tight end's status in jeopardy for Sunday's game against the Browns. Since his three-touchdown outburst in Week 3, Lewis has managed only eight catches for 121 yards and a touchdown in his subsequent six appearances, rendering him a lower-tier fantasy option at the position.
