    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed 14 times for 55 yards and a touchdown in the Week 10 win over the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: He has averaged a little more than 13 rushes per game over the last four games and clearly looks to be the lead dog in the rushing attack. He'll be an inconsistent play because if he doesn't get in the end zone, he probably won't have enough rushing or receiving numbers to be a big factor. He's a decent flex option against the Oakland Raiders next week.

  • Posted: 10/30/2017 1:15pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis has received trade interest from several undisclosed teams, but he is not expected to be traded, according to NFL Network's Michael Lombardi.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots do have what appears to be a surplus of running backs with Lewis, Mike Gillislee, James White and Rex Burkhead. Apparently they want to keep their committee intact. Lewis has been running well of late which makes it harder for the Pats to part ways. White remains New England's best fantasy back regardless of who's traded or not, but Lewis deserves flex consideration.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 6:49pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis had a team-high 15 carries for 44 yards and two catches for 10 yards in a 21-13 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Lewis has been seeing the bulk of the carries in recent weeks, but this was his least efficient outing. Lewis has been seeing enough work to be used as a flex play, but just keep in mind that the roles in New England's backfield can change on a whim.

  • Posted: 10/23/2017 4:39am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis had 76 yards on 13 carries in a week 7 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Ordinarily that would be great, but in New England's offense it could get you a bench spot next week. This is not a knock on Lewis, it's just a reminder that New England could turn to Rex Burkhead or James White the following week and make Lewis owners mad. It's best to avoid the committee altogether.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 7:23pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis has rushed 18 times for 105 yards in the last two games after rushing a combined 12 times for 46 yards in the first four games.

    Huddle Up: While the trend is encouraging, the Patriots are notoriously fickle with how they distribute carries. Lewis is a desperation flex play against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 7.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 1:28pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed for 52 yards and one touchdown on 11 carries against the New York Jets in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Lewis received a season-high 11 carries during the game and rushed for his second touchdown in the last three games. His role changes each week, but Lewis can be considered a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/9/2017 8:02am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis has been the focal point of trade conversations with multiple teams since the offseason, according to the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe, who reports some of the discussions occurred as recently as the past week.

    Huddle Up: Howe notes it has been other teams pursuing Lewis and not the Patriots making the calls. Regardless, he was limited to six snaps in the opener and appears to be playing behind Mike Gillislee, James White and Rex Burkhead. Furthermore, D.J. Foster is collecting a $15,000 check on the practice squad, which is more than twice the minimum for practice squad players. Although he has been injury-prone throughout his career, Lewis is a dynamic back who could be a fantasy RB2 in the right situation.

  • Posted: 9/8/2017 9:37am ET

    New England Patriots RB James White played in 43 of 81 offensive snaps in a Week 1 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, Sept. 7. Mike Gillislee finished second on the team with 24, Rex Burkhead had 10 and Dion Lewis tallied six.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots' committee backfield remained very much intact in the opener, although Gillislee certainly appears to have the edge at the goal line, as expected. Burkhead got the start, but it was White who saw the most playing time - primarily as when the Patriots used tempo. For now, Gillislee has the look of a volatile RB3/flex option who will pile up short-yardage scores when given the opportunity, while White is also a flex play in PPR. The other two backs are complete dart throws at the moment.

  • Posted: 8/22/2017 9:26am ET

    New England Patriots RBs Mike Gillislee, Rex Burkhead, James White and Dion Lewis form a 'deep, talented group' and any one of the four could be featured at any given time, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee, who was expected to be the early-down and goal-line back in New England this year, has missed the last two weeks with a hamstring injury, giving Burkhead time to shine. White is locked into a passing-game role, while Lewis figures to contribute in just about every way possible on offense and special teams. Owners may be able to hit big on occasion in this backfield on a weekly basis, but all of them will be hard to trust as anything more than flex options.

  • Posted: 8/9/2017 2:38pm ET

    New England Patriots RBs James White and Dion Lewis are listed as co-starters on the Patriots' initial depth chart.

    Huddle Up: Take this one with a grain of salt, a sizable grain of salt. The Patriots backfield is stacked, but White and Lewis are both passing-down, change-of-pace backs. Mike Gillislee is expected to be the actual runner, particularly in goal-line and short-yardage situations.

  • Posted: 7/12/2017 2:59pm ET

    The New England Patriots could consider limiting RB Dion Lewis' regular season snaps in order to keep him healthy for all 16 games, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss.

    Huddle Up: Lewis should be part of a committee at running back this season and probably will be used as a change of pace back. He was limited to 298 rushing yards and 94 receiving yards in 2016 because he only played in seven games. Owners in most leagues can consider Lewis a late-round option that could be used as a flex option against certain opponents.

  • Posted: 2/6/2017 5:21am ET

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (hamstring) injured his hamstring late in Super Bowl LI. Lewis said the injury didn't seem severe.

    Huddle Up: After James White's historic performance, it's worth pondering if he has leapfrogged Lewis. Both are comparable backs, but White is two years younger with less injury baggage. If Lewis lands elsewhere, he could be a decent RB2 in PPR leagues.

  • Posted: 2/5/2017 7:19pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) appeared to injure his knee against the Atlanta Falcons on the final play of regulation in Super Bowl LI Sunday, Feb. 5.

    Huddle Up: Lewis missed a good portion of the season while recovering from a knee injury, and a serious injury at this point would put at least a portion of his 2017 season in jeopardy. Stay tuned for updates.

  • Posted: 1/30/2017 9:15pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis has never been part of losing effort since joining the club in 2015. In fact, in 16 total games, including the postseason, the Patriots are a perfect 16-0 when Lewis suits up.

    Huddle Up: It's a pretty cool stat to think about, although it's probably more coincidental than anything else. Regardless, Lewis has shown he can be a huge factor in any given contest, and while his usage declined in the AFC Championship Game compared to New England's Divisional Round affair, it's still very possible he makes a considerable impact in what should likely be a high-scoring Super Bowl 51.

  • Posted: 1/22/2017 7:22pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed six times for 11 yards and caught two passes for eight yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 22.

    Huddle Up: After a three-touchdown effort a week ago, Lewis was barely part of the game plan. The Patriots have him under contract in 2017; he's a sound PPR target as a weekly flex consideration.

  • Posted: 1/14/2017 8:46pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis had 13 carries for 41 yards and a touchdown, two catches for 23 yards and a touchdown and returned a kickoff for a touchdown in a 34-16 win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Jan. 14, becoming the first player in postseason history to have a rushing, receiving and return touchdown in the same game.

    Huddle Up: Lewis didn't have a touchdown during the regular season, but now that he is healthy, his versatility and upside are on full display.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 8:27am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: The Miami Dolphins pose a good matchup for Lewis, who has averaged 17 carries the last two weeks. He's not catching the ball as much as you'd like, but he's a low-end RB2 this week.

  • Posted: 12/19/2016 5:22am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed 18 times for 95 yards and caught two passes for nine yards Sunday, Dec. 18, against the Denver Broncos.

    Huddle Up: It's the most action he has seen all year as he and LeGarrette Blount split the carries down the middle. Lewis becomes the back with the most upside for the Pats in fantasy, but Blount should continue to see RB2 value with his 15 touchdowns.

  • Posted: 11/28/2016 4:22pm ET

    New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount received 27 snaps during the team's Week 12 game, while RB James White received 26 snaps and RB Dion Lewis received 23 snaps. The Patriots ran three plays with White and Lewis on the field at the same time.

    Huddle Up: Blount received the most carries against the New York Jets and probably will continue to be the main running option moving forward. Lewis received six carries and caught four passes, while White caught four passes and received zero carries. Blount should be considered a No. 2 running back in most leagues but will not be as valuable in point-per-reception leagues. Lewis and White should be flex options for most owners.
