Dion Lewis managed 57 yards on 20 carries and caught 2-of-2 targets for 11 yards in the Titans' Week 10 win over the Patriots.
Lewis was a Week 10 fantasy disappointment in a game where Derrick Henry scored twice, but the 22 touches are still highly promising for Lewis' going-forward outlook. Keep rolling with him as an every-week RB2 when the Titans visit the Colts next. Indianapolis' run defense has collapsed since early in the year, and they also hemorrhage receiving production to running backs. Nov 11 - 5:33 PM

Dion Lewis rushed 19 times for 62 yards and caught all four of his targets for 60 yards and one touchdown in the Titans' 28-14, Week 9 win over the Cowboys.

The 23 touches marked a new season-high, besting his previous mark of 19 from the Titans' last game, a London loss to the Chargers in Week 7. The Titans have slowly been moving more and more toward Lewis as their clear No. 1 back after trying to force Derrick Henry earlier in the season. It's clear Lewis is the best fit for this offense, and he's now totaled 279 yards and a score over his last two outings on 42 touches. He'll be an RB1/2 next week against his former Patriots teammates, especially with the Titans likely to be playing from behind.
Nov 5 - 11:22 PM

Dion Lewis rushed 13 times for 93 yards and caught six passes for 64 yards in Week 7 against the Chargers.

Lewis carried the Titans' offense, outrushing Derrick Henry and finishing behind only Tajae Sharpe in receiving. It's a nice rebound after Lewis managed just 14 total yards last week. Lewis has been better than Henry through the first seven games and there's no reason to downgrade his rest-of-season outlook. The Titans have a matchup against Dallas after their Week 9 bye.
Oct 21 - 1:06 PM

Dion Lewis handled five carries for nine yards and caught both of his targets for another five yards in the Titans' Week 6 loss to the Ravens.

That's right, 14 yards on seven touches (2.0 yards per touch) for Lewis in Week 6. It was an abysmal outing for anyone donning silver and navy blue as everyone fell victim to Baltimore's 11-sack shutout defensive stand. Derrick Henry out-touched Lewis 8-7 but even he managed just 26 yards and an average 3.25 yards per touch. Lewis will be needed (and should out-touch Henry) in the Titans' Week 7 matchup against the Chargers' explosive offense.
Oct 14 - 9:33 PM

Dion Lewis rushed 12 times for 34 yards and caught 3-of-4 targets for 14 yards in the Titans' Week 5 loss to Buffalo.

He out-touched Derrick Henry 15 to 11 and has seemingly emerged as the Titans' preferred back, although it remains a fairly even committee. Still rarely scoring touchdowns and firmly in a timeshare, Lewis will be a low-upside flex option when Tennessee hosts Baltimore in Week 6.
Oct 7 - 4:50 PM

Dion Lewis hauled in all nine of his targets for 66 yards in the Titans' Week 4 win over the Eagles.

He "added" zero yards on four carries. A struggling running game and a second-half deficit conspired to keep Lewis on the field instead of Derrick Henry, and he responded with a nice PPR outing. He made a couple big plays in the passing game in the second half, but his biggest was a fourth-down conversion in which he made a man miss and went 17 yards up the sideline in overtime. With the offense looking better and Buffalo on deck, Lewis will be an RB3 next week.
Sep 30 - 6:08 PM

Dion Lewis rushed nine times for 26 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 14 yards in Tennessee's Week 3 upset win over Jacksonville.

Derrick Henry was Tennessee's main back in this one, out-touching Lewis 18 to 12. Lewis' touch counts have descended each week, falling from 21 in the opener to 15 in Week 2 and 12 today. With an inconsistent timeshare role, Lewis will remain a shaky flex option when the Titans host the Eagles in Week 4.
Sep 23 - 5:23 PM

Dion Lewis rushed 14 times for 42 yards and hauled in his only target for one yard in the Titans' Week 2 win over the Texans.

It was a game best-suited for Tennessee to lean on teammate Derrick Henry, which is exactly what the club did. Henry out-touched Lewis 18-15, with all of the former's touches coming via carries. Unfortunately for owners of this backfield, performances like this are bound to occur throughout the year depending on game script. Lewis remains the more coveted of the duo considering his usage in the Titans' passing game.
Sep 16 - 7:31 PM

Dion Lewis rushed 16 times for 75 yards and a touchdown and caught 5-of-8 targets for 35 yards in the Titans' Week 1 loss to Miami.

The Titans opened the game trying to "establish" Derrick Henry -- Henry handled the first eight touches in Tennessee's backfield -- but Lewis eventually took over as the team's clearly-superior option. Lewis' all-purpose game gives the Titans' offense more diversity than one-dimensional Henry brings to the table. Elevate Lewis to a borderline RB2 when the Titans host the Texans next.
Sep 9 - 9:02 PM

Dion Lewis rushed three times for 11 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 20 yards in the Titans' third preseason game.

He was the Titans' leading receiver with Marcus Mariota in the game. Lewis offers minimal touchdown upside behind Derrick Henry, but he should be an every-week factor in PPR leagues and could flirt with RB1 value should Henry miss time.
Aug 25 - 5:59 PM

Dion Lewis expects to share carries with Derrick Henry.

"I think they’re going to use both of us. Derrick’s a great back, so I think we can form a good one-two punch." This falls in line with what's expected. Henry has workhorse traits but Lewis looks likely to cut into his pass-down snaps. Despite coaching staff changes and the release of DeMarco Murray, the Titans should remain a two-back offense.
Apr 13 - 7:34 PM

Titans agreed to terms with RB Dion Lewis, formerly of the Patriots, on a four-year contract.

The Derrick Henry bellcow status lasted for all of five days. The Titans released DeMarco Murray last Thursday and add the more talented Lewis to pair with Henry in what will likely be a backfield tough to figure out at times in 2018. Lewis is by no means just a pass-down back, as he proved late last season when he carried the Patriots' offense on his back. He can bang it between the tackles in addition to excelling in the pass game. Lewis is the latest in a long line of former ex-Patriots to head to Nashville. This will be a backfield to watch closely in the coming months.
Mar 13 - 9:20 PM

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk on NBC Sports reports free agent Dion Lewis is drawing interest from eight teams.

Those teams include the 49ers, Colts, Dolphins, Giants, Jets, Patriots, Texans and Titans. With Le'Veon Bell locked into the franchise tag, Lewis should be the top back available in this year's free agent class. Early projections suggest Lewis could land a three-year deal in the neighborhood of $18 million.
Mar 13 - 1:49 PM

NBC Boston's Michael Giardi reports the Colts are "in" on free agent Dion Lewis.

CBS' Jason La Canfora previously reported the Colts would be "in play" for the Swiss-army back. The Colts need to completely revamp their backfield, and Lewis would be a great start.
Mar 12 - 1:31 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Jets, Titans, and Colts are "in play" for free agent Dion Lewis.

La Canfora adds the Patriots are "going to fight to keep" Lewis, but he's fully expected to price himself out of the Patriots' comfort zone. The 49ers could also get involved as they attempt to look for a different back to upgrade on free agent Carlos Hyde. Lewis could command $6 million per year.
