New York Giants RB Dion Lewis rushed for zero yards on one carry against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3. He also caught one pass for 10 yards during the game.
Huddle Up: Lewis was expected to receive a majority of the work with Saquon Barkley out for the season but finished with only two touches. Devonta Freeman likely will lead the team in carries moving forward, which will hurt Lewis' value. He can be benched next week against the Los Angeles Rams.

New York Giants head coach Joe Judge was asked Thursday, Sept. 24, what his plan will be if one of his three running backs, Dion Lewis, Wayne Gallman or Devonta Freeman, gets 'hot' in a game. 'He may be the guy for that moment. He may be the guy for that game,' Judge said, adding that the plan will to be use each of them, each week, depending on the game plan.
Huddle Up: Lewis and Gallman -- likely in that order -- are the best fantasy flex bets for this week as they know the offense, but Freeman looks better for the long haul.

New York Giants RB Dion Lewis ran 10 times for 20 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Chicago Bears and he added four catches for 36 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Lewis is expected to be the primary ball carrier after starter Saquon Barkley suffered a suspected torn ACL, and is expected to miss the rest of the season. Lewis is worth grabbing if you need an emergency fantasy replacement.

Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis is expected to be released in the offseason, in the opinion of ESPN's Turron Davenport. The move would save the team $4 million against the salary cap.
Huddle Up: Lewis can still be worthwhile in PPR, but he's not going to receive the touches in Tennessee to do it. He's someone to watch this offseason to see if he can land a bigger split to be an RB4 or RB5.

Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis played 366 snaps and gained 373 yards from scrimmage in 2019 after playing 600 snaps and gaining 917 yards from scrimmage in 2018.
Huddle Up: With Derrick Henry emerging as a dominant workhorse back, Lewis basically became a non-factor in the Tennessee offense. It wouldn't be surprised to see him cut during the offseason, and he would have to catch on with a team in need of a third-down back to have any chance of fantasy relevancy.

Tennessee Titans RB Dion Lewis is set to cost $5.162 million against the 2020 salary cap and carries a $1.125 million dead-cap figure if he is released. The Titans would save $9.175 million over the next two seasons by moving on.
Huddle Up: Tennessee seems poised to explore cheaper options and may need every cent it can get to renew RB Derrick Henry and QB Ryan Tannehill as unrestricted free agents. The Titans currently project to have the 13th-most salary available. Lewis doesn't factor into fantasy football plans for 2020 without a clearly defined role as a pass-catching option in a new city.
