Marcedes Lewis TE JAC 1 Month

Lewis (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against Washington, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

While not a glitzy fantasy TE option, Lewis is on QB Chad Henne's radar, as evidenced by the nine targets (resulting in six catches for 35 yards) that he saw in Week 1. Lewis is thus an option in deeper formats this weekend after practicing fully both Thursday and Friday.

Lewis (knee) practiced fully Thursday, the Jaguars' official site reports.

Barring a setback, it looks like Lewis will draw a probable designation for Sunday's game against Washington, on the heels of a Week 1 effort in which he recorded six catches on nine targets for 35 yards.

Lewis (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, the Florida Times-Union reports.

We'll monitor Lewis' status as the week rolls along, but John Oehser of jaguars.com suggests that the tight end seems likely to play Sunday against Washington.

Lewis (knee capsule) could be limited at practice Wednesday, John Oehser of jaguars.com reports.

The report notes that Lewis should play Sunday against Washington, but his status will be worth monitoring in advance of that contest. Lewis recorded six catches for 35 yards (on nine targets) in Week 1's loss to the Eagles.

Marcedes Lewis TE JAC 2 Months

Lewis caught all three of his targets for 46 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Bears.

Though he finished last year with a bang, Lewis has largely been disappointing since a 700-yard, 10-touchdown campaign in 2013. He drew a modest 47 targets in 11 games last season, and it's hard to envision a major leap in his involvement after the Jags drafted wide receivers Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson (hamstring) in the second round of May's draft. Having said that, Lewis is both healthy and without competition for the starting job, so he could surprise early in the season.

The Jaguars averaged a half-yard more per rushing attempt with Marcedes Lewis in the lineup last season.

It's the equivalent of going from 4.0 to 4.5 YPC, which is a big jump. Lewis, 30, is limited in the passing game by 4.8 speed and poor quarterback play, but his health is good news for the Jaguars' Toby Gerhart-led running game.

The Jaguars are expected to retain Marcedes Lewis for 2014.

Lewis has a $6.7 million salary, but the Jaguars like what he brings to the table as a blocker and red-zone option. Jacksonville also has over $50 million in cap space. Lewis will turn 30 in April. A quarterback change should do him a lot of good stats-wise, but Lewis will be nothing more than a low-end TE2 in fantasy.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said he anticipates Marcedes Lewis being back in 2014.

Lewis has two years left on his contract and is scheduled to count $8.25 million against the 2014 salary cap. The Jaguars have a ton of cap room, however, and Lewis is a critical part of the offense as a blocker, even though his receiving numbers have torpedoed since 2010. A quarterback change could do Lewis much good, but he's entrenched as a low-end TE2 fantasy-wise.

Marcedes Lewis is scheduled to count $8.25 million against the 2014 salary cap.

That's the third-highest number at the tight end position, behind only Heath Miller and Jason Witten. After Sunday's game, Lewis will have two years remaining on a five-year, $35 million deal. While the cap figure is high, the Jaguars currently have close to $40 million in available 2014 cap space. Lewis is a stud blocker and has scored touchdowns in four consecutive games.
