Fantasy Analysis
Week 7 Projections

Season Projections
8/21/16: Lewis will need another procedure in order to cleanup his original surgery to repair his torn ACL suffered last November. He'll most-likely land on the reserve/PUP list costing him at least the first 6 games of the season. While we are projecting Lewis for about half a season's worth of production, we'd recommend that you pass on him in all but the deepest of drafts. Even then, when it comes to the Patriots and news on injuries, you may be best served to just pass on Lewis come draft day. 7/7/16: Last year Dion Lewis went from a relative unknown, to a full-blown bonafide fantasy star, to the subject of fantasy owners' ire in the span of a mere few weeks. An undersized, shifty 3rd-year back out of Pittsburgh, Lewis managed to grab Tom Brady's, and the fantasy world's, attention over the first seven games of 2015, amassing 234 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, and 388 yards and two more scores on 38 catches. PPR players rejoiced as Lewis seemingly was grabbing hold of the starting RB role in New England, a position that has long proven to be wildly successful and also wildly fickle. Unfortunately for those who ran to the wire to pick him up, Lewis' knee injury brought the production to a screeching halt, and have now left many wondering if it was merely a fluke or whether he can be trusted to put up quality numbers in 2016. The good news? The knee recovery seems to be progressing well and he should be available to start the season. The bad news? Who knows how long he'll be able to stay healthy. His ceiling is very high, but his floor is very low. Be cautious here.

Rushing: 387 Yards, 5 TD.
Receiving: 29 Receptions, 289 Yards, 3 TD.
