Lewis reeled in both of his targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-7 win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis faked as though he was blocking on a play-action pass in the first quarter and then slipped out for a 10-yard touchdown, the Jaguars' first score of the game. The touchdown was Lewis' second in the past four games and fifth of the season -- the second most of his career. Even though Lewis ranks just sixth on a bottom-10 passing team in catches, he has three more touchdowns than any other Jaguar target. His production is getting hard to ignore.

Lewis (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation heading into Sunday's game against the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis was listed as a limited participant in each of the Jaguars' practices this week, but the fact that he isn't listed as questionable heading into the weekend suggests his workload may have been restricted for maintenance purposes rather than out of legitimate concern about the knee injury. The 33-year-old tight end is set to make his 150th career start Sunday, tying him for the second-most caps in franchise history. With cold conditions projected to hit Cleveland on Sunday, the Jaguars may neglect the passing game more than usual, thereby limiting the veteran's already modest upside.

Lewis (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

The Jaguars have monitored Lewis' practice reps through the first two days of the week, but there has been no indication from the team that the knee issue will put the tight end's status in jeopardy for Sunday's game against the Browns. Since his three-touchdown outburst in Week 3, Lewis has managed only eight catches for 121 yards and a touchdown in his subsequent six appearances, rendering him a lower-tier fantasy option at the position.

Lewis was limited at Wednesday's practice with a knee injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's apparently a new ailment, as Lewis hasn't been listed on the injury report since he dealt with a minor shoulder injury Week 7. He logged 92 percent of the offensive snaps in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Chargers, catching two of five targets for 29 yards. Lewis hasn't topped three catches or 49 yards in any contest since his shocking three-touchdown explosion against the Ravens back in Week 3. Any limitations likely would impact the Jacksonville rushing attack more than the passing game.

Lewis nabbed two of five targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis has now caught multiple passes in three straight games after just one such performance in the seasons' first six contests. The big-bodied target has shown some swiftness in the Jaguars' most recent contests with a catch of at least 20 yards in all three. He's still a tough start given the Jaguars' typically run-focused ways, but he seems to be heating up a bit.

Lewis caught three of six targets for 49 yards in Sunday's 23-7 win over the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis is enjoying a little bit of a renaissance now that he's the man again in Jacksonville. His six targets were his most since October of last year and has already surpassed last year's touchdown total. Lewis is a tough start given the fact that he's been held catchless in half of his game this season, but he can also score in bunches and has reemerged as a solid red-zone target. His risk likely outweighs his reward, though, especially with Leonard Fournette likely to return as a potent goal-line back this week.

Lewis had two catches for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis was battling a minor shoulder issue earlier in the week, but he started in his usual No. 1 tight end role and was targeted three times by Blake Bortles. One of those targets went for a 24-yard reception, while the other produced a five-yard score, Lewis' fourth touchdown of the season. While Lewis trails only Zach Ertz (5) for the league lead among tight ends, it's important to note that three of Lewis' touchdowns came in the Jags' Week 3 blowout win over the Ravens. That game looks to be a major outlier, as Lewis has produced just three catches on five targets in his other six contests.

Lewis (shoulder) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Colts after practicing fully Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis has failed to catch a pass in two of his last three outings, with his three-touchdown outburst in Week 3 an obvious outlier. Overall, Jacksonville's starting tight end has recorded just five catches (on 17 targets) for 76 yards through six games to date.

Lewis (shoulder) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

A limited participant in practice for the second straight day, Lewis doesn't quite seem 100 percent healthy, but the Jaguars haven't provided any indication that he's trending toward sitting out Sunday's game against the Colts. Lewis was re-installed as the Jaguars' top tight end in training camp following the offseason trade of Julius Thomas to the Dolphins, but aside from an anomalous three-touchdown performance in Week 4, the return to the starting lineup hasn't made the veteran an alluring fantasy commodity.

Lewis (shoulder) was limited at practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Lewis was on the field for 55 out of 69 snaps on offense in Week 6's 27-17 loss to the Rams, yet he failed to catch a pass for the second time in three games. His three-TD effort in Week 3 is an obvious outlier, as the Jaguars starting tight end has logged just five catches for 76 yards (on 17 targets) through six games overall.
