Marcedes Lewis caught 3-of-6 passes for 49 yards in Week 9 against the Bengals.

Lewis saw the second-most targets behind Marqise Lee. He has four games without a catch this year, and most of his production came in a three-touchdown week against Baltimore. Lewis is a TD-dependent streaming option for Week 10.
Nov 5 - 4:37 PM

Marcedes Lewis caught 2-of-3 passes for 29 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Colts.

Lewis scored on an outside fade in the red-zone for Blake Bortles' only TD. He has four touchdowns this season, but they've come in just two games. Lewis doesn't need to be owned in redraft leagues.
Oct 22 - 4:49 PM

Marcedes Lewis hauled in 1-of-2 targets for 14 yards in the Jaguars' Week 5 win over the Steelers.

Lewis' only catch was on a screen early in the game. He has caught 1-of-6 targets since his three-touchdown explosion in London. Lewis can be left on the wire.
Oct 8 - 5:50 PM

Marcedes Lewis didn't catch any of his four targets against the Jets in Week 4.

Hey, at least he had more touchdowns in England last week than the Saints and Dolphins had combined this week. Lewis didn't have any catches in the first two games, so you can chalk up Week 3 as one of the flukiest games of the season.
Oct 1 - 4:39 PM

ESPN Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco expects Marcedes Lewis to be a red-zone weapon for Jacksonville with Allen Robinson (knee) done for the year.

Lewis is coming off a three-touchdown game against the Ravens last week in London and caught one of them on an end-zone fade. At 6'6/265, Lewis replicates the size Robinson (6'3/210) had at the goal line that other receivers Marqise Lee (6'/192) and Allen Hurns (6'3/195) don't possess. Lewis obviously isn't going to be a TE1 every week, but he has some touchdown appeal.

Marcedes Lewis hauled in 4-of-5 targets for 62 yards and three touchdowns in the Jaguars' Week 3 win over the Ravens in London.

To call this performance a shock would be an understatement. Despite entering the game with zero catches through two games, Lewis was involved early, catching a pass across the middle on the opening drive and capping that series with a 23-yard touchdown, his first since Week 2 of last season. Lewis did a great job selling the play action on the score, allowing him to get wide open in the end zone. The tight end was not done, either, getting open deep down the middle of the field for a second touchdown after halftime and adding a third on a four-yard fade the next drive. Lewis had three touchdowns total since 2013 entering the game. While it will be tempting to chase these points, Lewis will not be a fantasy option next week against the Jets.
Sep 24 - 12:25 PM

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis expects to be "used more" this season.

Lewis said he got the impression from OC Nathaniel Hackett, who Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports worked one-on-one with Lewis at OTAs. Considering Mychal Rivera was Jacksonville's only notable addition after trading Julius Thomas, it certainly makes sense for Lewis to see more work, but it is tough to see the 33-year-old returning to his 58/700/10 form of 2010.
May 30 - 9:01 AM

Jaguars placed TE Marcedes Lewis (calf) on injured reserve.

Primarily a blocking tight end at this stage of his career, 32-year-old Lewis' season ends after catching 20 passes for 169 yards and one touchdown. Lewis has not reached 30 catches in a season since 2012. After the Jags signed Lewis to a new three-year, $12 million deal with $5 million guaranteed in March, he will likely return to the team in 2017 at his $4.5 million base salary.

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis (calf) exited Week 11 against the Lions with a calf injury.

Lewis had two early catches, but he was forced out of the game in the first quarter. Ben Koyack should get some more snaps with Lewis out.

Jaguars LT Marcedes Lewis (hip) is expected to play against the Bears in Week 6.

Lewis exited Sunday's game in London with a hip injury, but will have the bye week to get healthy. With Julius Thomas (elbow) also slated to return after the bye, Lewis will be relegated to No. 2/blocking status.

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis exited Week 4 against the Colts with a hip injury.

Lewis hurt himself when he came down hard at the end of a second-quarter catch. He said after the game he is just dealing with a bruise. With Julius Thomas (elbow) out, the Jags are very thin at tight end.
Sun, Oct 2, 2016 10:49:00 AM

Jaguars re-signed TE Marcedes Lewis to a three-year, $12 million contract.

The Rams reportedly made a late push, but Lewis will stay with the only team he has ever known. Primarily a blocker at this point in his career, Lewis had just 16 catches and zero touchdowns last season. He will turn 32 in May.

The Jaguars are expected to re-sign free agent TE Marcedes Lewis.

GM Dave Caldwell said last month he wanted to keep the veteran tight end. Lewis will be returning as a blocking complement to Julius Thomas.
Mon, Mar 7, 2016 02:51:00 PM

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell hopes to re-sign free agent TE Marcedes Lewis.

Lewis would be returning as little more than a blocking complement/backup to Julius Thomas, but has spent his entire 10-year career in Jacksonville. It's a thin year in the draft and free agency at tight end, but the sides should be able to work something out.
