WR - FA
Week 6 Outlook
Giants wide receiver Roger Lewis caught one pass for 31 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Detroit Lions.
Lewis is buried on the depth chart behind Beckham Jr., Shepard, and Latimer, but Lewis will have the chance to unseat Latimer for that third wide receiver spot if he can impress enough. However, with tight end Evan Engram also expected to be split out often this season and Beckham Jr. rotating into the slot, the third wide receiver position on the Giants might not be very reliable in fantasy regardless of who wins the job.
Roger Lewis did not participate in the Giants' Week 17 win over the Redskins. He will have surgery to repair a bone spur injury that has been nagging him late in the season.
Lewis will likely fade back into irrelevance anyway, as the Giants should open 2018 with Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, and Evan Engram as the focal points in the passing game. There won't likely be room for a fourth option to be fantasy-relevant. Expect Lewis to be a role player that is not usable in fantasy leagues.
Roger Lewis managed 74 yards on four receptions in the Giants' Week 15 loss to the Eagles 34-29. He was targeted 10 times in what turned out to be an unexpected Giants' offensive outburst against the best team in the NFC.
Despite the 10 targets, which was third most on the team in Week 15, Lewis remains irrelevant in fantasy formats. He should not be active for fantasy championship games in Week 16.
Roger Lewis pulled in 46 yards receiving on seven receptions in the Giants' Week 14 loss to Dallas 30-10. He led the team with 11 targets on the afternoon.
Lewis was the target beneficiary of a banged up Sterling Shepard in Week 14. He poses no fantasy value in seasonal leagues, but could (as a very very deep reach) be a viable DFS tournament play in Week 15 against the Eagles if Shepard is limited or out. The Giants should be playing from behind most of the afternoon which would enhance Lewis' PPR stock in deep tournament play.
Roger Lewis caught one of three targets for just nine yards on Sunday against the Raiders.
Both the return of Sterling Shepard and Geno Smith's ineffectiveness rendered Lewis completely, rather than just mostly, irrelevant. Although Eli Manning will be back in Week 14, ignore Lewis for fantasy purposes.
