Week 8 Free Agent Focus

By Staff 10:10pm EDT 10/22/17


Dion Lewis, RB, Patriots

Blind-bid recommendation: 50-60%

Still somehow available in nearly 80% of ESPN leagues, Lewis has led Patriots RBs in rushing yards for 3 straight games and carries for the past 2.

Against Atlanta, Lewis rushed 13 times -- 5 more than #2 Mike Gillislee -- for 76 yards (5.8 per attempt). He got the team's 1st 3 handoffs, was on the field when the Pats bled the clock late and even garnered a pair of carries inside the 10-yard line before Gillislee got stuffed on 3rd-and-goal from the 1.

Lewis looks like the Patriots' lead RB and top fantasy back right now. He certainly belongs on a roster in at least any league of 10+ teams.
