2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Eagles 2011 5th round pick saw precious little playing time in his rookie year, running the ball 23 times for 102 yards and a score while catching just one pass. It was a little perplexing watching aging veteran Ronnie Brown continually run into the line and go down while the Eagles had a speedster like Lewis waiting in the wings but you’ll have to check with Andy Reid as to why he divvied up the playing time the way he did. This season, Lewis will enter training camp as the top backup to starter LeSean McCoy but his value as a handcuff is unknown. He will need to beat out a pair of rookies in Bryce Brown and Carlos Polk to win the role and be impressive enough that the team doesn’t bring in a veteran runner like they did last year. An off-season incident for pulling a fire alarm likely didn’t help Lewis’ case any. On other teams, Lewis’ size (5’8”, 195 pounds) might be an issue but not in Philadelphia where the running back position has been owned by a pair of smaller backs (McCoy and Brian Westbrook) for the last decade. Lewis’ fantasy value will be determined in training camp.

Comment: Lewis was charged with falsely reporting a fire (a felony) and misdemeanor reckless endangerment July 7th. He's expected to be the backup to LeSean McCoy this season although may face competition from Bryce Brown. No word yet on how or if this incident will affect his playing status.

News From The Past 90 Days
Browns' coach hints at running back by committee     -- Sat Jun 28 1:00 pm --

Tate and West should handle bulk of opportunities
Key quote from Coach Mike Pettine: "I think in the AFC North, you have to be running back by committee. You'd like to have a guy that can carry most of the load, but also be able to alternate guys ... you've got to be able to get fresh legs out there." (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

FF Today's Take: Ben Tate is going to be the "carry the load" guy while rookie Terrance West should get the majority leftover carries. Tate has RB2 appeal but comes with moderate injury risk. Columnist Terry Pluto goes on to state that Edwin Baker appears to be next in line on the depth chart ahead of Dion Lewis.
