The Jaguars averaged a half-yard more per rushing attempt with Marcedes Lewis in the lineup last season.
It's the equivalent of going from 4.0 to 4.5 YPC, which is a big jump. Lewis, 30, is limited in the passing game by 4.8 speed and poor quarterback play, but his health is good news for the Jaguars' Toby Gerhart-led running game. Jul 16 - 8:21 PM

After reviewing the film, the Jaguars came away pleased with Marcedes Lewis' play last season.

There was some talk that Lewis' roster spot was in danger due to his $6.7 million salary and $8.25 million cap hit, but the Jags have plenty of financial flexibility. They can easily afford to keep their obvious best option at the position. OC Jedd Fisch found that the running game averaged 0.6 more yards per carry when Lewis was on the field last year. They also went 0-6 when he was inactive and 4-6 when he was active. Lewis remains a low-end TE2 in fantasy.

The Jaguars are expected to retain Marcedes Lewis for 2014.

Lewis has a $6.7 million salary, but the Jaguars like what he brings to the table as a blocker and red-zone option. Jacksonville also has over $50 million in cap space. Lewis will turn 30 in April. A quarterback change should do him a lot of good stats-wise, but Lewis will be nothing more than a low-end TE2 in fantasy.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said he anticipates Marcedes Lewis being back in 2014.

Lewis has two years left on his contract and is scheduled to count $8.25 million against the 2014 salary cap. The Jaguars have a ton of cap room, however, and Lewis is a critical part of the offense as a blocker, even though his receiving numbers have torpedoed since 2010. A quarterback change could do Lewis much good, but he's entrenched as a low-end TE2 fantasy-wise.

Marcedes Lewis caught three passes for 70 yards in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Colts.

Lewis wound up missing five games with a recurring early-season calf injury, but stayed healthy down the stretch and finished 2013 with 25 receptions for 359 yards and four touchdowns. A solid blocker and red-zone target, Lewis has been a serious fantasy factor in just one of his eight NFL seasons -- his 2010 contract year. A quarterback upgrade could spark him to some extent down the road, but Lewis is entrenched for now as a low-ceiling fantasy TE2. He'll turn 30 in April.

Marcedes Lewis is scheduled to count $8.25 million against the 2014 salary cap.

That's the third-highest number at the tight end position, behind only Heath Miller and Jason Witten. After Sunday's game, Lewis will have two years remaining on a five-year, $35 million deal. While the cap figure is high, the Jaguars currently have close to $40 million in available 2014 cap space. Lewis is a stud blocker and has scored touchdowns in four consecutive games.
Fri, Dec 27, 2013 08:39:00 AM

Marcedes Lewis had four catches for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Titans.

He was targeted six times in the passing game. Lewis had a 30-yard catch on Jaguars' second drive of game and lined up out wide and scored on a fade route from four yards out in first quarter. He's managed to turn around a disappointing season and is averaging 38 receiving yards with four touchdowns over his last five games. Jacksonville finishes off their regular season against the Colts in Week 17.

Marcedes Lewis (thigh) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Lewis is fully expected to play against the Titans. Although he's scored a touchdown in three straight games, Lewis is not a compelling TE2.

Marcedes Lewis (thigh) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Lewis has scored a touchdown in three consecutive games and will see more targets with Cecil Shorts (groin) done for the year, but he's barely a low-end TE2.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 06:13:00 PM

Marcedes Lewis caught four passes for 54 yards and one touchdown in Week 15 against the Bills.

Lewis drew seven targets and led the Jaguars in receiving with Cecil Shorts (groin) inactive. He's now found the end zone in three straight games. Once Shorts is back healthy -- if that happens -- Lewis will go back to contributing mainly as a blocker. Lewis remains nothing more than a low-end TE2.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 06:33:00 PM

Marcedes Lewis caught two passes for 42 yards and a touchdown in Jacksonville's Week 14 win over the Texans.

Lewis' touchdown was a one-yard fade. His 41-yard catch was much more impressive, as he reached over the back of Texans LB Darryl Sharpton before adding some major yards after the catch. Lewis has gotten more involved in the Jaguars' passing attack in recent weeks, but still hasn't cleared three catches in a game. He's not a viable TE2.
Fri, Dec 6, 2013 12:40:00 AM

Marcedes Lewis caught three passes for 26 yards and one touchdown in Week 13 versus Cleveland.

Lewis was targeted four times on the afternoon and his three grabs match a season-best. His score was his first of 2013. Lewis has been called on to block a ton this season, leaving him as nothing more than a TE3 in fantasy.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 06:13:00 PM

Marcedes Lewis caught one pass for 18 yards in Jacksonville's Week 12 win over the Texans.

Lewis' second-quarter grab was his only target of the afternoon. Lewis has the skills to take on a bigger role as a pass catcher, but the Jags need him more for blocking. He's barely on the TE2 radar.
Sun, Nov 24, 2013 06:21:00 PM

Marcedes Lewis caught three passes for 23 yards in Jacksonville's Week 11 loss to the Cardinals.

Lewis had a good matchup against a defense allowing the most fantasy points to opposing tight ends, but watched reserves Danny Noble and Clay Harbor combine for four catches, 94 yards and a touchdown. Struggling for TE2 value, Lewis should remain on the waiver wire in all but the deepest of leagues.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 06:40:00 PM

Marcedes Lewis was held to three catches for 39 yards in the Jaguars' Week 10 win over the Titans.

Lewis' big play came on a powerful 27-yard catch and run where he broke several tackles down the left sideline. Otherwise, Lewis continued to be an afterthought in the Jaguars' passing attack. He has yet to reach 50 yards in any game this year. Jacksonville does face Arizona in Week 11, and the Cardinals have allowed the most fantasy points in the league to tight ends.
