Marcedes Lewis Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Jaguars HC Jack Del Rio called TE Marcedes Lewis (calf) a "question mark" for Week 2.  It sounds like he did suffer an injury this past Sunday, not just a cramp.  We'll update Lewis' status leading up to Sunday, but he won't be a recommended fantasy option.

Jaguars HC Jack Del Rio confirmed that the ailment that kept TE Marcedes Lewis out for much of Sunday's season-opener is not serious.  It's still unclear if Lewis strained his calf or was just dealing with cramps.  Regardless, Del Rio said that Lewis was walking well and has a chance to practice Wednesday.  It sounds like a day-to-day situation.

Jaguars HC Jack Del Rio said that TE Marcedes Lewis suffered a calf strain in Sunday's win over the Titans.  Interestingly, Lewis said that he was just cramping.  For now, consider him questionable for Week 2.

The Jaguars and TE Marcedes Lewis have agreed on a 5-year deal worth $34 million.  He was originally slated to make $7.3 million this year under the franchise tag.  Lewis staged a mini-holdout before reporting to camp this past Monday.  He's coming off a career year that saw him post career-highs in catches (58), yards (700), and TDs (10).  He's a poor bet to repeat that production, although he's still a fine low-end TE1 for fantasy purposes.

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis will end his brief holdout and report to training camp on Monday.  "Basically they still are negotiating but I'm tired of not being with my team," Lewis said.  "And I need to be there."  Lewis is set to make $7.3 million under the franchise tag this year, but he's looking for a long-term deal.  The Jags may want to see another big year from Lewis before ponying up the cash.  From a fantasy perspective, it'd be a good thing if he didn't get a new contract before Week 1.  Extra motivation.

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis was slapped with the franchise tag earlier this offseason.  And he recently hinted that he could stage a hold out if he doesn't get a long-term deal.  "Who wants to play under a one-year contract? That's not cool," Lewis said. "Especially when you have played five years and given your sweat, blood and tears to the team and laid it out there every Sunday, putting your body on the line."  This will definitely be something to monitor this summer.

The Jaguars have named TE Marcedes Lewis their franchise player.  The tag will pay him about $7 million in 2011.  Lewis broke out in his 5th year in the league, posting career-highs in catches (58), yards (700), and TDs (10) this past season.  He's emerged as one of the game's best all-around TEs, and the Jags weren't going to let him slip away.  All that being said, we'd bet against him repeating that breakout year in 2011.

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis dislocated his thumb in Thursday's practice.  It's not expected to keep him out of Sunday's game against the Jaguars, but it's definitely something to keep an eye on.  We should have another update on Lewis' status on Friday.  We're interested to hear if the injury will impact his ability to catch the ball.

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis sustained a concussion in the 1st quarter of Sunday's loss to the Patriots.  He's unlikely to play this weekend against the Browns, giving us a chance to see rookie TE Zach Miller in a featured role.

Jags TE Marcedes Lewis caught 6 passes for 55 yards in week 16. He dropped one in the 2nd quarter that would have gone for 25 yards. He leads all TEs with 8 drops this year. Still, we're reminded every so often that Lewis is a prototype. He has 40 catches for 489 yards & 2 TDs with one game to go. Lewis will be a classic sleeper in 2009 fantasy drafts as he enters his 4th year. 

The Jaguars placed TE George Wrighster on IR with a torn ACL. If you're hunting for a TE replacement for the fantasy playoffs you could do worse than Marcedes Lewis. Lewis caught 5 passes for 57 yards vs. the Bills and now will be the primary TE without Wrighster out there.

Jaguars rookie TE Marcedes Lewis is fully recovered from his high ankle sprain and could get 10-15 snaps Sunday at Washington. We certainly wouldn't start him until he shows something -- but if Lewis can make plays, the Jaguars offense will have an extra dimension that defenses will struggle to account for. Byron Leftwich would benefit the most.

Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis (ankle) was limited in practice Monday. "The main thing is to get healthy," Lewis said. "I don't want this to be something that lingers. I don't want to go out there if I'm not ready to go. I have a standard that I want to play at, and if I can't play at that standard, then I'm not going to be out there." Look for him to sit out a game or two and get his leg right.

Jaguars rookie TE Marcedes Lewis got injured Saturday night vs. Miami. HC Jack Del Rio said Lewis has a high ankle sprain and "might be out for a little while." He reportedly left Dolphins Stadium on crutches with his right leg in a boot. Treatment usually includes being in a cast for up to six weeks. One of our 2006 Sleepers, Lewis is in danger of missing a couple regular season games and he's probably best served as a free-agent wire candidate now. Don't draft him.

The Jaguars and rookie TE Marcedes Lewis have agreed to 5-year contract worth about $7.5m (slightly more than $4.8m of which is guaranteed). Lewis was the team's first-round selection (28th overall) and is expected to help fill the void left by the sudden retirement of WR Jimmy Smith.
