Lewis carried five times for 27 yards and caught four of five pass targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 26-10 win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

While LeGarrette Blount remains entrenched as the Patriots' top power back, Lewis and James White (three carries for 17 yards and four catches for 18 yards) continue to split the team's pass-catching/change-of-pace duties, giving both players modest fantasy upside in PPR formats as Week 14's Monday night showdown against the Ravens approaches.

Lewis was on the field for 23 of 73 snaps on offense in the Patriots' 22-17 win over the Jets on Sunday, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, Lewis carried six times for 24 yards and caught four passes (on seven targets) for 34 yards.

EDGE Analysis

As the Patriots continue to work Lewis back in the mix, power back LeGarrette Blount saw 27 snaps ( and 11 carries for 67 yards), whiles James White caught four passes (on nine targets) on 26 snaps. Looking ahead, Lewis and White figure to share the team's pass-catching/change-of-pace duties, giving both players modest utility in PPR formats, though of the two, it looks like Lewis' ceiling is higher, given that the Patriots seem more inclined to hand him carries than White.

Lewis made his season debut Sunday at San Francisco, rushing five times for 23 yards, while catching three of four targets for 26 yards.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis was in the backfield on the Patriots first offensive snap of the game, and caught a nine-yard pass just two players later. Like last year, he looked shifty and quick with the ball in his hands. Meanwhile, James White had six receptions on six targets for 62 yards, including a nine-yard touchdown grab. It remains to be seen how much work Lewis will get in the upcoming weeks, as White has established himself as a solid option out of the backfield for the Patriots. It's a great dilemma for New England, but might not be for fantasy owners. In any event, Lewis will square off against the Jets on the road next week.

Lewis is listed as active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

EDGE Analysis

In his first game action of the season, expect Lewis to be eased into the Patriots' backfield mix, a scenario that shouldn't greatly hamper the Week 11 fantasy upside of power back LeGarrette Blount. In the coming weeks, however, Lewis could pose a threat to James White's grip on the team's change-of-pace duties.

Coach Bill Belichick indicated Lewis's health was not a factor in the running back being made inactive Sunday night against the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

The Patriots did not have to list Lewis on their Week 10 injury report because he wasn't on the the team's active roster until he was removed from the PUP list Saturday. That said, Belichick suggested Monday that Lewis "wouldn't have been on the injury report" if he had been activated by Friday. The decision to shelve Lewis for Sunday's game was thus motivated by a desire not to rush things with player coming off ACL surgery and a subsequent clean-up procedure. Lewis' next chance to suit up in a game will arrive this coming Sunday against the 49ers. If he is made active for that contest, we'd expect Lewis to be eased back into the team's backfield mix, a scenario that would limit his Week 11 fantasy upside.

Lewis (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

The Patriots will exercise caution with Lewis here with the long haul in mind, and with fellow RB D.J. Foster also inactive Sunday, James White will continue to serve as the team's top pass-catching back, while LeGarrette Blount will work as the team's primary early-down back.

If Lewis (knee) -- who was removed from the Patriots' PUP list Saturday -- suits up Sunday night against the Seahawks, ESPN's Mike Reiss suggests that the "most likely scenario is that (Lewis) plays a few series upon his return and gradually builds his workload."

EDGE Analysis

Meanwhile, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport indicates that Lewis is not a lock to be in uniform Sunday night and given the Patriots' late kickoff, the running back is a risky Week 10 roll. Either way, expect James White to retain a good portion of the team's pass-catching back duties for the time being.

Lewis may not be on the 46-man roster Sunday against the Seahawks despite being activated from the PUP list on Saturday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

EDGE Analysis

The Patriots apparently need to make some roster adjustments in order for Lewis to be active Sunday, though even if he does make the game-day squad, it's possible he could be limited in his first game back from injury.

Lewis (knee) was activated from the PUP list on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis was activated in time for Week 10 and he's expected to make his season debut in Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He'll likely see a limited role as he eased back into action and he's a player to consider, especially in PPR leagues, once he's back in the swing of things.

Lewis (knee/PUP list) appears on track to suit up Sunday night against the Seahawks, the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Patriots have until Saturday afternoon to activate Lewis so that he's eligible to play Sunday, but the team's release of fellow RB Tyler Gaffney paves the way for such a move. If Lewis does return to action in Week 10, he'd likely be eased into action, but in the absence of any setbacks, he's a candidate to help out PPR owners in the coming weeks.
