Green Bay Packers
Equanimeous St. Brown
The Green Bay Packers placed tight end Marcedes Lewis and linebacker Oren Burks on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday. There's a chance they could both clear the league's COVID protocols by Sunday, but it remains to be seen if that will happen. Splitting time and targets with Josiah Deguara, Lewis hasn't become a fantasy relevant streamer at the weakest position despite the season-ending injury to Robert Tonyan earlier this year. Lewis has 23 catches (27 targets) for 214 scoreless yards in 15 games played. But if Lewis is out in Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings, who have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per game to the position in the last three weeks, Deguara would become a more attractive TE2.
Green Bay Packers tight end Marcedes Lewis faces the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11 after catching two passes for 10 yards in the Week 10 win over the Seattle Seahawks. He logged 57% of the offensive snaps last Sunday and is the Packers' primary tight end with Robert Tonyan (knee) out for the season. The Vikings have been stingy against opposing tight ends and have yet to surrender a touchdown to the position this season. Lewis is mainly used in blocking situations, and fantasy managers can search elsewhere for a TE streamer in Week 11.
Green Bay Packers tight end Marcedes Lewis was targeted once and caught one pass for minus-one yard in Sunday's 13-7 loss to the Chiefs. He led the Packers tight ends in offensive snaps (46%), out-snapping teammates Dominique Dafney (40%) and Josiah Deguara (24%). Lewis is Green Bay's primary tight end with Robert Tonyan (knee) out for the season. The 37-year-old owns only four percent of the team's targets and is in a timeshare with Dafney and Deguara. Fantasy managers can search elsewhere for a streaming tight end, as Lewis is a dart throw, at best, in Week 10 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Green Bay Packers tight end Marcedes Lewis is in line for more work after starter Robert Tonyan was diagnosed with a torn ACL. He logged 31-of-73 snaps (42%) in last Thursday's win over the Arizona Cardinals. The Packers will be without star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was ruled out in Week 9 after testing positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday. Lewis has hauled in nine catches on 11 targets for 108 yards over games in 2021. The 37-year-old is the Packers' primary tight end, but Josiah Deguara and Dominique Dafney could also see an expanded role while Tonyan is out. Lewis is a deep-league option at best against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9.
The Green Bay Packers re-signed tight end Marcedes Lewis to a two-year, $8 million deal that includes $2.1 million guaranteed. Lewis has spent the last three seasons in Green Bay and caught only 10 passes for 107 yards three touchdowns in his 15th season last year. The Packers also signed long snapper Joe Fortunato on Wednesday. Lewis was mainly used as a blocker in 2020, with Robert Tonyan serving as the team's primary pass-catching tight end. Green Bay also has Jace Sternberger in the fold at the position, so Lewis will return to the same role he had last season. The former first-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars back in 2006 has recorded 28 catches on 40 targets for 302 yards and four touchdowns in his three seasons with the Packers. He can be ignored in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.
Green Bay Packers tight end Marcedes Lewis (knee) is doubtful for Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons. Lewis probably had no chance of suiting up after not practicing all week, leaving Green Bay with Robert Tonyan and Jace Sternberger at the tight end position. It's a favorable matchup, so Tonyan will be a good streaming option against a struggling Falcons Defense after catching all five of his targets for 50 yards and a score last week. Tonyan is also a good pivot for those who have Julio Jones (hamstring) or Calvin Ridley (ankle, calf) rostered if they wind up being inactive on Monday night.
The Green Bay Packers agreed to terms on a one-year, $2.25 million deal to re-sign tight end Marcedes Lewis on Wednesday, according to a source. The deal includes more than $1 million in guarantees. Lewis spent the last two seasons with the Packers, but he had just 18 catches for 195 yards and one touchdown over that span. Even with Jimmy Graham gone, the veteran tight end will mostly fill a blocking role at the position. If you're targeting a tight end from Green Bay in fantasy, it should be Jace Sternberger. Lewis, 36 in May, was a first-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2006.
Green Bay Packers tight end Marcedes Lewis caught his only target for one yard and a touchdown in his team's 31-13 win over the New York Giants. Lewis played the role of a vulture in this one, snatching away a touchdown meant for Jimmy Graham. The veteran tight end became the 38th player to catch a score from quarterbackAaron Rodgers. Considering Lewis has played less than 50 percent of the snaps in seven games this year, he shouldn't be on fantasy rosters.
Green Bay Packers tight end Marcedes Lewis is looking to expand on his blocking role this season. Lewis is currently one of the team's most senior players on a young roster and was the only one of the 11 unrestricted free agents the Packers re-signed this offseason. New head coach Matt LaFleur said earlier this offseason that the team wants to expand the role he plays in the offense. Lewis will be unlikely to be a player with fantasy value. However, fantasy owners should monitor the situation as it may impact the value of fellow tight end Jimmy Graham.
Green Bay tight end Marcedes Lewis is unlikely to see many, if any, targets on Sunday night when the Chicago Bears come to Green Bay. Lewis is second on the depth chart at tight end behind Jimmy Graham. Lewis was signed primarily for his ability as a blocker. While he is a capable, although underwhelming, receiver he isnt likely to get many looks. Green Bay does not have a history of utilizing their starting tight end much in the passing game, let alone their backups. Lewis would only have value if Graham were to miss time, and even then, his value would be limited. Lewis should not be owned in any fantasy leagues.
Veteran free-agent tight end Marcedes Lewis was signed by the Green Bay Packers. Lewis had spent the previous 12 years of his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was cut by Jacksonville this offseason after catching 24 passes for 318 yards and five touchdowns in 2017. This is the second tight end that Green Bay has signed this offseason. They had previously signed Jimmy Graham. Lewis will share duties with tight end Lance Kendricks backing up Graham. Lewis has declined as a pass-catching talent in recent years and projects primarily as a blocking specialist. Green Bay has rarely had highly productive receiving seasons from the tight end position, and there is little reason to think Lewis will break that mold playing backup for a team that rarely puts two tight ends on the field. Lewis blocking should help Green Bays running game, especially since neither Graham nor Kendricks have proven to be dependable blockers.
The Jacksonville Jaguars released tight end Marcedes Lewis on Tuesday, according to a source. Lewis was typically a fantasy afterthought in Jacksonville. He had 24 receptions for 318 yards and five scores last season, but three of those touchdowns came in one game. Lewis is unlikely to latch on with a team that makes him the top pass-catching tight end option.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will pick up tight end Marcedes Lewis' 2018 option. He will return for his 13th season with the Jags after catching 24 passes for 318 yards and five touchdowns in 2017. Lewis is a big body for quarterback Blake Bortles but is more of a blocking tight end in this offense. He won't be on the fantasy radar in 2018.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis will go up against a Patriots defense that has not allowed a touchdown to a tight end since Week 6. Lewis does have five touchdown receptions this season, but three of those came in one game. The veteran tight end is the longest-tenured Jaguar, so he certainly will be cherishing the moment. But he went catchless last week against the Jaguars and has registered over 30 receiving yards only once since Nov. 5. Of all the starting tight ends active for this weekend, Lewis is at the bottom of the list as a fantasy play.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Jaydon Mickens (hamstring) was limited in practice all week and is questionable to face the Steelers on Sunday. Tight end Marcedes Lewis (ankle) practiced in full the last two days and was taken off the final injury report for the Divisional Round. Mickens is the team's fifth receiver with Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns finally back from injuries, so he wouldn't have been a fantasy option even if healthy. Lewis will be fine, but he wasn't really a fantasy option throughout the year, so he won't be against a Steelers defense that was tough on tight ends this year.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday. There's been no indication that Lewis is in danger of missing the Divisional matchup against the Steelers. He's a weak fantasy option, though, as he scored three of his five touchdowns this year in a fluke game on Sept. 24 against the Ravens. Lewis had just three catches for 17 yards in the Wild-Card win over the Bills. Avoid him in DFS games this weekend.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis will have a tough matchup against the Steelers on Sunday. The veteran tight end has been a touchdown-dependent option all season and should see slim pickings against a Steelers defense that allowed the third fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends this season. Lewis' value is when he is hauling in touchdowns, something he has done only five times this season. He will have a tough matchup against a Steelers defense that has allowed only two touchdowns to tight ends all season. Lewis should ride the fantasy bench for this weekend.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis will be a red-zone threat this Saturday when the Jaguars take on the Bills. Lewis only has 24 receptions this season, but five of those have gone for touchdowns. This week he will take on a Bills defense that has allowed the 14th most fantasy points to tight ends this season. They have been torched twice recently by the Patriots'Rob Gronkowski and have allowed two touchdown catches to tight ends over their last three games. The Jaguars will try and play conservatively on offense, and Lewis could see some targets in short-yardage situations. There will be better tight ends active in fantasy this weekend, but Lewis has sleeper value as a touchdown-dependent option.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receivers Allen Hurns (ankle) and Keelan Cole (quadriceps) and tight end Marcedes Lewis (ankle) all practiced on Friday and have been taken off the final injury report for Week 17 against the Titans. Hurns hasn't played since suffering his ankle injury on Nov. 12, but it looks like he'll be active this weekend. In a game that doesn't mean anything to Jacksonville, expect Hurns to play limited snaps, which makes him unappealing to fantasy owners. Cole has been the top producing receiver for the team in the absence of Marqise Lee (ankle), and he remains the best bet here for fantasy owners in a great matchup. Lewis remains a fantasy non-factor as a touchdown-dependent TE2.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis (ankle) missed practice Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. It seems unlikely that the Jags would push Lewis to play in Week 17 against the Titans in a meaningless game for them. Even when active, Lewis wasn't much of a fantasy factor anyways. If he sits, Ben Koyack would likely be in line for more repetitions, but he wouldn't be a fantasy consideration.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receivers Keelan Cole (quadriceps) and Allen Hurns (ankle) and tight end Marcedes Lewis (ankle) were all limited in practice Wednesday. It's a new injury for Cole, but he should be fine for Week 17 against the Titans. With Jacksonville not expected to rest their starters, Cole has a mouthwatering matchup against Tennessee's leaky secondary, and he continues to outproduce rookie Dede Westbrook. If Hurns continues to sit, Cole could remain the No. 1 target in the passing game. He's gone over 100 yards receiving in back-to-back weeks and has scored in three of the last four weeks. Hurns has been out since Nov. 12, but he could be eased back into action before the playoffs. Even if he's active, though, he'd likely be third in the receiver pecking order. Lewis has only three catches in the last three weeks and hasn't scored since Nov. 19. He should be avoided.
Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Ivory (back, elbow) and tight end Marcedes Lewis (shoulder) were both limited in practice Thursday. It was Ivory's second straight limited practice, while Lewis was upgraded after sitting out Wednesday. Both players are on track to suit up in Week 16 against the 49ers. Ivory won't have any fantasy relevance with rookie Leonard Fournette expected to return. Lewis is a low-end, touchdown-dependent TE2 who hasn't gone over four catches or 62 yards in a single game in 2017, although he has scored five times.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis will take on a 49ers defense that has allowed the 12th fewest fantasy points to tight ends this season. Since Week 7, the 49ers have allowed seven touchdowns to tight ends. Lewis has five touchdowns this season but only has 283 receiving. Despite the improved play of quarterbackBlake Bortles, Lewis is the definition of touchdown-dependent and should not be trusted to be put into lineups for the fantasy championship in Week 16.
Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee (ankle) and tight end Marcedes Lewis (shoulder) are not expected to practice Wednesday. It would be a surprise if Lee played before the playoffs, while Lewis hasn't been a fantasy factor all year. Without Lee in the fold and with Allen Hurns (ankle) still out, Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole will be the team's top two wideouts. Both have produced nicely in recent weeks and should be considered for flex spots in deeper leagues. Cole has scored in each of the last three games.
Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis has five touchdowns this season for the playoff-hopeful Jaguars. But he has only 19 receptions this season, making him less than desirable in fantasy. But he is coming off a 46-yard performance against the Saints and will face a Seahawks defense that has allowed seven or more fantasy points to seven different tight ends this season. They have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends over their last seven games and Lewis is a top goal-line option for quarterback Blake Bortles when they get in the red zone. It's a desperate play but Lewis is available in most leagues and is a touchdown-dependent option who could find the end zone in Week 14.

Are NFL Trade Rumor Covered in the Player News?

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
