Lewis was limited at practice Wednesday due to a shoulder issue.
Lewis was on the field for 55 out of 69 snaps on offense in the Jaguars' 27-17 loss to the Rams in Week 6, yet he failed to catch a pass for the second time in three games. His three-touchdown effort in Week 3 is an obvious outlier, as the Jaguars' starting tight end has logged just five catches for 76 yards (on 17 targets) through six games on the season.
Lewis was targeted twice but didn't record a catch in Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Rams.
Lewis was the talk of two countries when he helped obliterate the Ravens with three touchdowns during their Week 3 rout in London. That kind of output can make the paranoid fantasy owner fearful of leaving Lewis out of the lineup. Don't be that fantasy owner. Lewis is far removed from his days as an effective receiver, posting just three touchdowns in his previous 37 games combined prior to his Week 3 outburst and recording just one catch outside that game all year. Maybe you could catch lightning in a bottle again with Lewis, but more likely you'll just be standing in the rain.
Lewis had one catch for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 5 win over the Steelers.
Lewis was targeted only twice on an afternoon in which Blake Bortles attempted just 14 passes and registered eight completions. The veteran tight end had a breakout game in Week 3, catching three touchdowns in a win over Baltimore, but he's since returned to being only a minor factor in one of the NFL's least-efficient passing offenses.
Lewis was held without a catch in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Jets.
After coming out of nowhere to grab three touchdowns in the Jags' Week 3 win over the Ravens, Lewis came back down to Earth in Week 4. The veteran tight end was targeted four times but, like the rest of the Jaguars' receiving corps, fell victim to yet another wildly inaccurate afternoon from Blake Bortles. Even after his Week 3 breakout, Lewis is best avoided in most fantasy formats, as there's little evidence to suggest that he'll be a significant factor in the Jacksonville offense on a week-to-week basis.
Lewis caught four of five targets for 62 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 44-7 win over the Ravens in London.
Held without a catch on four targets over the first two weeks, Lewis shockingly became the first player this season to catch three touchdown passes in a single game. His massive 6-foot-6 frame came in quite useful on scoring passes from 17, 30 and four yards out. Lewis plays the vast majority of offensive snaps and figures to remain a threat in the red zone, but Sunday's outing is still best viewed as an extreme outlier. He only has 31 touchdowns in 157 regular-season games, despite serving as a starter for most of his career. Lewis does draw a favorable Week 4 matchup, heading to New York to face the Jets.
