RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Lewis hasn't played in an NFL game over the last two seasons, but he's still somewhat in the mix to help fill the void in the Pats' backfield created by the departure of pass-catching back Shane Vereen. That said, at this stage, James White and Travaris Cadet remain to favorites to absorb Vereen's previous duties.

2014

Lewis has carried the ball just 36 times in his three seasons in the league and spent all of last year on IR due to a leg injury, but is healthy now. Although it's a very limited sample, he does have a 4.8 YPC to show for his career so far. An undersized back at 5-8, 195, he lacks elite speed and isn't well suited to three-down work, but he could carve out a complementary role.

2013

Lewis will battle Montario Hardesty for backup slotting behind clear-cut starter Trent Richardson.

2012

Lewis was given just 23 carries as a rookie last year, with 12 of them coming in Week 17 when the team rested LeSean McCoy. The former fifth-round pick is unknown, but the Eagles view him as McCoy’s backup, so while he may not be a workhorse if McCoy goes down, he’d be the favorite to lead an explosive offense in touches. Lewis offers insurance for McCoy owners and upside for those who take a flier on him regardless.

2011

Competing for third running back role.
