Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Staying in Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis agreed to a one-year, $2.25 million contract with the Packers on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Lewis was on the open market for a few hours, but he's decided to stick with the Packers for a third straight year. The 35-year-old tight end finished 2019 with 15 receptions for 156 yards and a touchdown. With Jimmy Graham having left for Chicago, Lewis temporarily sits atop the depth chart at tight end, but it would be surprising if he led the position group in snaps in 2020. He'll likely face competition from Jace Sternberger and Robert Tonyan throughout the offseason program and training camp, and the Packers will likely address the position with another free-agent pickup or draft selection.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Wants to keep playing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis, who caught 15 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown over 16 regular-season games in 2019, relayed that he wants to continue playing and would like to stick in Green Bay, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Lewis hauled in two passes for 14 yards in the NFC Championship Game loss to the 49ers as well. He's set to be an unrestricted free agent in March, and he'll turn 36 years old in May. The veteran tight end said he felt like he found his groove in head coach Matt LaFleur's offense. While Lewis won't have a big pass-catching role at this age, the Packers could benefit from re-signing him if they decide to cut Jimmy Graham, which would save nearly $9 million against the cap.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: One reception in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis caught his only target for two yards in Monday's victory over the Vikings.

Lewis played as many snaps as fellow tight end Jimmy Graham in Week 16, but he finished with one reception and a single digit in the receiving yards column for the fourth week in a row. He'll continue seeing plenty of time on the field, but figures to remain a complementary piece in the Packers' offense.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Leads Packers tight ends in snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis led Packers tight ends with 32 snaps and caught one pass for six yards in Sunday's victory over the Bears.

Lewis and Jimmy Graham were both credited with a start Week 15, and the former ended up playing more snaps than the latter and any other Packers tight end for the second week in a row. While Lewis is spending more time on the field, the increase in plays has not led to any notable change in his output: he totaled two receptions for 11 yards over the last two weeks. Graham remains the top pass-catching option among Green Bay's tight ends.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: First touchdown as Packer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis was targeted twice and caught a one-yard touchdown in Sunday's victory over the Giants.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, via Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, spoke recently about his desire to add Lewis to the list of players he has thrown a touchdown pass to, and he did just that Week 13, connecting with Lewis in the end zone for the first time since Lewis joined the Packers in 2018. The touchdown was Lewis' only reception over the last four games, so fantasy players should not expect much from him Week 14, even against a Washington defense that has struggled with opposing tight ends of late.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Not targeted in Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis was not targeted in Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

Lewis played the second-most snaps among Packers tight ends in Week 12, but he was held without a reception for the third straight game and the fourth time in five contests.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: No targets in Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis was not targeted in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

Lewis put up a season-high 50 yards in the Packers' Monday night victory over the Lions in Week 6, but he has been a non-factor in the offense since, catching just one pass for 11 yards over the last three games. Lewis has finished in the top two among Packers tight ends in snaps played in all but one game this season, but that could change over the latter portion of the campaign, as rookie tight end Jace Sternberger came off injured reserve and made his debut Sunday, and another tight end -- Robert Tonyan -- is close to returning after missing four games with a hip injury.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Totals season-high 50 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis caught two passes for 50 yards in Monday's victory over the Lions.

Lewis gobbled up 25 yards on both of his catches in Monday's game, with each topping his previous season high for yards in a game. He has now caught two passes in three straight games, but he remains the clear No. 2 tight end in Green Bay, averaging 27 snaps over his last three games compared to top tight end Jimmy Graham's 54.3. That makes him tough to trust for fantasy players, but he will at least have the matchup in his favor in Week 7, facing a Raiders defense that has been among the worst at stopping opposing tight ends up to this point of the season.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Shakes off injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (heel) won't carry an injury designation into Monday's game against the Lions, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

Although Lewis was a limited participant in practice all week, his injury won't keep him out of Monday's contest. With Robert Tonyan (hip) ruled out, Jimmy Graham and Lewis are the Packers' only two healthy tight ends.

October 12, 2019 05:16 PM
Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Remains limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (heel) was a limited practice participant Friday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Lewis was added to the injury report this week with the heel issue and has been a limited participant both days of practice. The veteran tight end may need to participate fully Saturday to avoid an injury designation for Monday's game against the Lions.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Limited to begin week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis was limited in Thursday's practice due to a heel injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

It's positive news that Lewis wasn't held out of Thursday's session entirely, though the severity of his heel issue remains undisclosed. With Robert Tonyan (hip) listed as a non-participant to start the week, the Packers are currently operating with only one fully healthy tight end in the form of Jimmy Graham.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Two more receptions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's victory over the Cowboys.

Lewis continues to make far more impact than he made in 2018, and is now up to seven receptions -- four more than he had all of last year. Lewis played nearly as many snaps as fellow tight end Jimmy Graham over the first three weeks of the season, but Graham has picked up the pace in both the snap count and production departments the last couple weeks, pushing Lewis clearly back into a reserve role.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Two receptions in reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis caught two passes for 19 yards in Thursday's loss to the Eagles.

Lewis' output was similar to what he put up in Weeks 1 and 3, which did not provide much help for fantasy players. Of more import, he wasn't credited with a start for the first time all season while fellow tight end Jimmy Graham was. Graham wasn't targeted in either Week 2 or Week 3, casting some doubt on the Packers' tight end situation; however, he had a big night Thursday, tallying six receptions and a score. Heading into Week 5, Graham is clearly the top tight end in Green Bay.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Makes third start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis caught one pass on two targets for 19 yards in Sunday's victory over the Broncos.

Lewis' reception Sunday gives him three on the season, which ties his total from the entirety of the 2018 campaign. That alone proves he is handling a bigger role than he did a year ago, as does the fact he has been credited with a start in all three games the Packers have played thus far. While that at least puts him back on the map, he is still second in snaps among Packers tight ends behind Jimmy Graham and Lewis doesn't have much upside to discuss at age 35, so there isn't a lot for fantasy players to get excited about.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: No receptions in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis was targeted once but did not make a reception in Sunday's victory over the Vikings.

Packers tight ends were nearly invisible Week 2, as Lewis was the only one to even see a pass in his direction. Despite that, Lewis remains in a reserve role behind Jimmy Graham, who played 54 snaps Sunday, compared to Lewis' 31 and Robert Tonyan's 22.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Nearly matches 2018 reception total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis had two receptions for 14 yards in Thursday's victory over the Bears.

Lewis had just three catches over 16 games and played just under 18 percent of the snaps in his first season with the Packers a year ago, but he nearly matched that reception total in Week 1 alone and was on the field for 34 of the Packers' 64 offensive plays -- good for 53 percent. Lewis' fantasy impact figures to remain minimal with him sharing backup tight end duties behind Jimmy Graham with Robert Tonyan, but it's looking like he will be more involved than he was in 2018.

March 14, 2019 09:32 PM
Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Staying in Green Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Packers re-signed Lewis on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Lewis joined the Packers in the midst of the offseason program last May and proceeded to play a bit role in the offense. The majority of his 11.9 snaps per game were spent as a blocker, with minimal impact (three catches for 39 yards on four targets) as a pass catcher. The Packers could still address their tight-end ranks through the draft and/or free agency, but Lewis tentatively slots back in as the No. 2 option behind Jimmy Graham.

Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Minimal impact in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis did not catch a pass in the Packers' Week 17 loss to the Lions and finished the season with three receptions for 39 yards over 16 games.

Lewis scored the second-most touchdowns of his career when he found paydirt five times in 2017, but he did almost nothing in his first season with the Packers. A return to Green Bay in 2019 should not be ruled out for the veteran, but given his 2018 role and a new coaching staff on the way, it seems unlikely.

December 17, 2018 02:56 PM
Packers' Marcedes Lewis: No targets Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis played 11 snaps on offense in Sunday's loss to the Bears and was not targeted.

The 11 snaps were the second most among Packers tight ends, but that did not lead to any passes thrown his direction. Lewis still sits with just three receptions for 39 yards over 14 games this season.

December 10, 2018 12:44 PM
Packers' Marcedes Lewis: Not targeted in Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis played 16 snaps on offense in Sunday's victory over the Falcons and was not targeted.

Lewis played twice as many snaps as he did in Week 14, but he failed to catch a pass for the third time in four weeks, and was not targeted for the ninth time in 13 games this season.
