    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.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 10:23pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis rushed five times for 23 yards in the Week 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers. He also added three grabs for 26 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Lewis is worth adding in deeper PPR leagues, as it appears the team will try and get him involved in the offense. He and James White will fight for scraps behind LeGarrette Blount.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 12:28pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis is officially active for the team's Week 11 game.

    Huddle Up: Lewis will be playing his first game of the season and probably will have a limited role against the San Francisco 49ers. Owners may want to see him play in a game before considering him for their lineups, but he should have value late in the season.

  • Posted: 11/19/2016 9:25am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) traveled with the team for their Week 11 game against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: There is a solid chance that Lewis will be active for the game, but he probably will see limited playing time since he has missed the first 10 weeks of the season. Owners may want to avoid Lewis this week, but he should be a starting option over the last six weeks of the season.

  • Posted: 11/14/2016 10:21am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis was inactive for the team's Week 10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, but head coach Bill Belichick indicated during a conference call Monday, Nov. 14, that Lewis is fully healthy after undergoing two knee surgeries since November of 2015. 'We didn't activate him (off the Physically Unable to Perform list) until Saturday, but he wouldn't have been on the injury report. When a player hasn't played for a year, they haven't played for a year,' Belichick said.

    Huddle Up: The writer poses an interesting 'guess' and suggests Belichick did not want to use yesterday's game - which figured to be a tight game against a quality opponent - to break Lewis in, but rather Week 11 against the one-win San Francisco 49ers - an opponent against whom the Patriots should control game script and score. Expect several updates in the coming days, but it makes sense Belichick would use a game against San Francisco to ease in Lewis.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 9:34am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) has been medically cleared to play but it remains uncertain whether he will be active for Week 10's game against the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Even if Lewis is active for the Sunday night game, he is unlikely to play an important role in the offense, with both LeGarrette Blount and James White currently ahead of him on the depth chart. Avoid using Lewis in all formats this week.

  • Posted: 11/12/2016 1:20pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, Nov. 12.

    Huddle Up: Lewis' return isn't likely to have a big impact in Week 10. However, it could spell a portion of doom for LeGarrette Blount owners. Lewis is sure to cut into Blount's impressive work, but both should remain RB2-worthy. James White's role is sure to be negatively impacted, too, but he remains a flex option this week while Lewis is expected to have restrictions.

  • Posted: 11/12/2016 10:53am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) has yet to be cleared for Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks, but at least one teammate isn't doing anything to stop the hype surrounding what most expect to be his season debut. 'He's nasty in the open field. It doesn't make any sense,' said running back LeGarrette Blount, who also added Lewis has been so electric in the open field during practice that he is an unfair matchup for opposing safeties.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots need to make a decision Saturday afternoon if they want Lewis active for Week 10 and the team is almost certain to limit his touches even if he does play, especially with James White filling his role so well. With that said, Lewis is a true difference-maker and it doesn't figure to take very long before he's the best New England back to own in fantasy. Owners should keep him benched this week unless they are truly desperate at running back, but he could easily be a second-half fantasy stud.

  • Posted: 11/2/2016 6:50pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) could make his season debut in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: While a definite return date has yet to be determined, Lewis should be stashed in all formats. Once he is back at full strength, he has RB2 potential in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/27/2016 10:04am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

    Huddle Up: The Patriots will have a few weeks to activate Lewis from the Physically Unable to Perform list, so he probably will not be rushed back to the lineup. He should be used as more of a receiver out of the backfield when he returns and will be a valuable fantasy option. Owners should look to add Lewis if he is available in their leagues.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 6:07am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) will begin practicing this week, and the team will have 21 days to activate him.

    Huddle Up: He'll probably need a couple of weeks, but he should be stashed in your league. If by chance he's floating on waivers, grab and stash him.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 10:50am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) was eligible to practice this week but did not, and the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe speculates 'it's certainly possible Lewis' return isn't imminent'.

    Huddle Up: Lewis was always best viewed as a lottery ticket for owners with hopes of getting a second-half jolt, and the expectation has long been he could return after the team's Week 9 bye. That is still possible, although it is far from a given. This drama could go on for a little while longer, and New England could still end up ruling him out for the season. Owners in deep leagues should continue to hold, but those in shallow leagues without an IR spot may need to cut bait during the bye-week crunch.

  • Posted: 10/18/2016 9:51am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) 'probably' will not practice this week, according to head coach Bill Belichick.

    Huddle Up: Lewis is officially eligible to return to practice this week, but James White has performed admirably in his stead as the main passing-down back, so Belichick is probably willing to play this thing out a bit longer. Every indication so far out of New England is that the Patriots are treating Lewis with kid gloves, so a return after the team's Week 9 bye seems likely. Lewis is very much a stash-worthy player for owners hoping a boost right before the fantasy playoffs.

  • Posted: 8/30/2016 2:27pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) was officially placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Aug. 30. He will miss at least the first six weeks of the season.

    Huddle Up: LeGarrette Blount and James White will likely comprise a two-headed monster in New England's backfield, at least to start the season. White will presumably take over Lewis's role in the passing game and should be viewed as an RB3 at worst in PPR leagues.

  • Posted: 8/21/2016 10:52am ET

    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) is expected to miss two months because of his second knee surgery and likely will start the 2016 season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

    Huddle Up: Lewis will not be back on the field until late October at the earliest, so owners should drop him on their draft boards. Lewis could still be a late-round option in leagues, but owners will need to stash him on the bench. James White should fill Lewis' role on offense and likely will be a middle- to late-round option in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/21/2016 8:08am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) could start the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list if he is not able to participate in practice this week, in the opinion of ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss. Lewis is doing well in his recovery but has not practiced since the start of training camp.

    Huddle Up: Lewis is coming back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, so the Patriots may want to give him more time to recover before he plays again. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation because Lewis could be a low-end No. 2 or solid No. 3 running back if he is ready Week 1. LeGarrette Blount and James White would receive a boost in value if Lewis misses the first six weeks.

  • Posted: 8/18/2016 6:02am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) has yet to practice in training camp. Lewis is nine months removed from surgery to repair his anterior cruciate ligament and has continued to rehab.

    Huddle Up: Lewis took part in OTAs in June, and there's no word of a setback. Agility is a big part of his game, and he still has the potential to be an RB2 in fantasy. However, with the way New England spreads the ball around based on matchups, he could slip into the RB3 area if he's out much longer.

  • Posted: 8/6/2016 10:58am ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) believes he can practice right now, but the Patriots are taking things slow. It is not known if Lewis will start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list but it appears unlikely at this point.

    Huddle Up: Reports have been all over the place regarding Lewis' availability for the start of the season. Fantasy owners really won't know his status until later on in camp. Right now everyone is playing the waiting game when it comes to Lewis. His current ADP is Round 5.

  • Posted: 8/5/2016 1:27pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) might open up the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

    Huddle Up: Lewis, of course, suffered a torn ACL midway through last season as he was enjoying a breakout campaign, and unfortunately, it appears he's still hampered by it. It's also still possible he plays in Week 1, but owners need to keep an eye on this, as beginning the year on the PUP list would cost him the first six weeks. James White and Brandon Bolden would each receive boosts if Lewis remains sidelined.

  • Posted: 6/14/2016 12:45pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) practiced Monday, June 13, without a brace on his left knee. Lewis said he feels better every day but that he still has a long way to go in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

    Huddle Up: Somewhat encouraging early news, but as stated above, there are several more hurdles for the opt-injured Lewis to clear and the Sept. regular-season opener.

  • Posted: 6/5/2016 2:04pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) said the rehab from his torn anterior cruciate ligament is going well and that he is doing what the trainers are allowing him to do. Lewis has not participated in offseason workouts and probably will miss the upcoming minicamp as well.

    Huddle Up: It's hard to say if we'll see much of Lewis this summer, and fantasy owners might have to draft him mainly on blind faith that he'll be able to make a full comeback and be the dynamic back he was early last season.

  • Posted: 5/24/2016 1:52pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis (knee) has given signs of optimism for being ready for the start of the season. Some close to Lewis feel that he's about a month away from being able to play in a game. The team plans to be conservative with him, and his repetitions in organized team activities will be limited at best.

    Huddle Up: Lewis is a fantasy favorite with his skill-set and opportunity, but he has an NFL track record littered with health issues and will need to be monitored extra-closely this summer.
