2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Coming into last season, Dion Lewis was arguably the least talked about running back in Patriots camp. Excitement surrounded Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead because of their new contracts and their projected usage. While both came out the gates hot, by Week 6, it was Lewis getting a heavier workload. 2017 marked Lewis' first 16 game season which inevitably led to him setting career highs in several areas. 180 carries, 896 yards, and 9 total touchdowns were all high-water marks for the 27 year old back. His 32 receptions were the second best of his career.

Now Lewis joins a new team and new OC Matt LaFleur suggests the backfield will operate with Henry and Lewis as 1A and 1B. If this turns out to be the case, Lewis could have standalone flex value. In PPR leagues, Lewis is the running back to own as a potential RB2. In standard leagues, he'll likely have RB2 value only if Henry underperforms on the field or misses time with injury. When projecting RB value, it largely comes down to usage and Lewis appears to be in the same boat as guys like Theo Riddick and James White - strong in PPR, but probably a fade in standard.

Dion Lewis could outgain Derrick Henry?
Insider analyzes Titans' backfield
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 5, 5:20 pm

Tennessee Titans
When DeMarco Murray was released, the presumption was that Derrick Henry would likely receive the lion’s share of the carries. The arrival of Dion Lewis gives the Titans the type of pass-catching weapon in the backfield that they have not had in a long time. And it means that there will likely be game-day packages for each back, and both will get their fair share of touches. For fantasy purposes, it is not out of the question that Henry would lead the team in rushing attempts and rushing yards, but that Lewis would probably have more all-purpose yards, between rushing and receiving combined. (Titans Insider - Terry McCormick)

FFToday's Take: The likelihood Henry will be the early-down workhorse/goal-line back and could see in upwards of 250 carries and will see occasional work as a receiver makes it understandable why he is going in the third round of PPR drafts. However, unless owners believe Lewis is going to struggle with injuries, it's hard to comprehend how he is going three rounds later. If things remain the same when drafting season really picks up, Lewis figures to be a steal as a RB3/flex option.


Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis: 1A and 1B
OC Matt LaFleur hints both RBs will be featured
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Jun 5, 2:15 pm

Tennessee Titans
Derrick Henry appears likely to serve on early downs and in short-yardage situations, and Dion Lewis as a receiving threat out of the backfield. But they could be interchangeable. “Until you get the pads on and really get going through preseason, I look at them both as 1A and 1B,” LaFleur said. “I feel confident in both of those guys. They both bring a little bit different qualities to what they do. But I think we’ve got two really good backs that we’re excited about.” (The Tennessean)

FFToday's Take: For the time being it appears Titans offensive coordinator Matt Lafleur envisions both Henry and Lewis seeing a good chunk of the RB workload which will cap the upside of both in fantasy land. Lewis is more adept in the receiving department making him more attractive in PPR leagues.
