RB - FA
This Week Outlook
Free Agent RB Dion Lewis retires after ten seasons in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots, Tennesee Titans, and New York Giants, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.
If you've played fantasy football long enough, there's a good chance you've plugged Dion Lewis into your RB2 spot after an injury with hope and a prayer. He made his mark in the NFL doing the little things that bigger, stronger backs couldn't do. His premier season was in 2017, where he had 1,110 total yards and 17 TDs with the Patriots, earning championships for many fantasy managers that season.
Giants running back Dion Lewis rushed two times for 14 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
The touchdown was Lewis's second of the season and his first since Week 2, which was the also the last time he logged more than three carries in a game. He cultured a short touchdown on Sunday but is not a viable option in any fantasy format unless there are multiple injuries to Giants running backs.
Giants running back Dion Lewis rushed three times for six yards in Sunday's win over the Seattle Seahawks.
Even with Devonta Freeman sidelined, Lewis remains a depth running back for the Giants. Wayne Gallman has taken over as the starter, while Alfred Morris has primarily rotated in when Gallman leaves the field.
Giants running back Dion Lewis rushed two times for 10 yards and caught one of his three targets for seven yards in Sunday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Lewis is an afterthought in the Giants offense and has received just 21 carries for 69 yards and a touchdown while catching 17 of his 27 targets for 113 yards and a touchdown through 11 games. Even with Saquon Barkley on injured reserve, Lewis is not worth rostering even in the deepest of formats.
Giants' RB Dion Lewis caught 2 passes for 17 yards in Week 10's win over the Eagles.
Lewis is a nice role player, but New York has a crowded backfield with Wayne Gallman and Alfred Morris handling most of the touches. Barring injuries, Lewis isn't currently on the fantasy radar.
