WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis has been removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Lewis will play tonight along with a few others who were cleared for Green Bay this morning. The veteran isn't a highly recommended option as he splits time with Josiah Deguara, especially considering the frigid temperatures at Lambeau Field.

Marcedes Lewis has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Green Bay just faced a Cleveland team that was hit hard by COVID issues, so hopefully this doesn't turn into something bigger for the Packers (though changing of protocols have been discussed). Josiah Deguara will handle most of the snaps at tight end this week if Lewis doesn't get cleared by Sunday.

The Packers are re-signing Marcedes Lewis.

Marcedes' lengthy career continues, and the 36-year-old is actually getting a two-year deal to remain in Green Bay. The veteran tight end is a favorite of Aaron Rodgers, and he's a very willing blocker in the run game. Lewis caught three touchdowns last season.

The Packers are re-signing Marcedes Lewis, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

Lewis mostly contributes as a blocker and a veteran presence for Green Bay, and Jace Sternberger will likely be the top tight end fantasy option for the Packers in 2020. Lewis will turn 36 before next season.

The Packers are re-signing Marcedes Lewis to a one-year deal, according to Adam Schefter.

Lewis caught just three passes for 39 yards in his first season with Green Bay, as he was mostly used as a blocker. Turning 35 in May, won’t be a recommended fantasy next season.

Marcedes Lewis catches one pass against the Vikings.

Lewis gained four yards on his lone Week 12 reception. The veteran tight end might have gotten more time with Jimmy Graham dealing with a broken thumb, but he’s a better real-life contributor for the Packers than he is a fantasy asset right now.

Marcedes Lewis catches one pass in Week 10.

Lewis gained 30 yards on his lone receptions versus Miami. The veteran tight end is not a recommended fantasy option right now.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis makes first catch as a Packer in Week 9 loss.

Lewis was able to bring in his lone target for five yards against New England. The 34-year-old isn't on the fantasy radar despite catching five touchdowns in 2017 with Jacksonville.

Marcedes Lewis has signed with the Packers.

Lewis broke the news himself by posting a picture of him signing his contract with Green Bay on Instagram. After 12 seasons in Jacksonville to start his career, the 33-year-old veteran tight end joins a very good situation with Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback. Jimmy Graham is clearly going to be the top tight end option for the Packers, but Lewis is yet another big target for the team and is likely to have a solid role. With a bunch of young receivers behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, the Packers might use a lot of two-tight-end sets with Graham and Lewis in 2018.

The Jaguars are releasing tight end Marcedes Lewis, according to the AP's Mark Long.

This is a bit surprising after the Jags picked up Lewis' option for 2018, but it explains the team signing tight ends Niles Paul and Austin Seferian-Jenkins in free agency. For Lewis, it ends a 12-year run with the team in which he caught 375 passes for 4,502 yards and 33 touchdowns. He probably has a right to be angry about the move coming so late in free agency, as he might've had more opportunities if Jacksonville released him before the new league year. Lewis will be 34 in May, but he's likely to draw a interest elsewhere as a strong blocker that caught five touchdowns in 2017.

The Jaguars exercised Marcedes Lewis' 2018 option.

The veteran tight end should be back with the Jaguars for his 13th season, which isn't a surprise considering his presence steadies the tight end group. At his size, Lewis is a very good run blocking tight end that will at least have a large role as a blocker in 2018. He did have a three-touchdown performance in London against the Ravens and ended up with five scores on the year, but Lewis wasn't a reliable fantasy option with only 318 receiving yards. It should be more of the same this season, as Lewis will be a good contributor in real life for the Jags, but he might not be much help for your fantasy team.

Marcedes Lewis scores in AFC Championship Game.

Lewis got wide open by the goal line after a play-action fake for a four-yard touchdown. It was the big tight end's lone reception of the game. Lewis is entering the final year of his contract in 2018, and he's not a recommended fantasy option despite being a key target in the red zone for Jacksonville.

Marcedes Lewis caught three passes for 17 yards in Sunday's win over Buffalo.

Lewis was a target over the middle for Blake Bortles, but the quarterback only completed 12 passes for 87 yards on Sunday. They will look to get the passing game going next week in the AFC Divisional Round against Pittsburgh.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis catches two passes for 13 yards in Week 17.

Lewis' final stat line for the regular season is 24 receptions for 318 yards and five touchdowns—with three of the touchdowns coming in one game against the Ravens in London early in the season. The veteran tight end will now look make a playoff run starting next week against the Bills.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis catches one pass against the 49ers.

Lewis gained 22 yards on his lone reception in the Week 16 loss. He's not a recommended fantasy option at the moment.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis catches two passes in Week 15.

Lewis gained 18 yards on his two receptions. Though Blake Bortles is hot right now, Lewis has considerable downside in fantasy lineups.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis catches four passes in Week 13.

Lewis gained 46 yards on his three receptions, and he also had a two-point conversion on a fade route where he high-pointed the ball with his big frame. Lewis isn't a reliable fantasy option, but he makes plays for the Jags when called upon.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis held to one reception in Week 12 loss.

It went for 10 yards. Lewis isn't a recommended fantasy option against the Colts next Sunday.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis scores against the Browns.

Cleveland has not been good against opposing tight ends this season, so those that took a chance and inserted Lewis into their lineups had it pay off with a score. Overall, Lewis caught both targets for 26 yards and a touchdown in the win. The Cardinals next week are another good matchup (though not as good as the Browns), but it's a risk playing Lewis—you'll probably need to hope for another touchdown.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis catches two passes against the Chargers.

The big tight end gained 29 yards on his two receptions (five targets), inclined a long of 21 yards. His next opponent, the Browns, have been terrible against tight ends this season, so Lewis is one of the better streaming options in Week 11—though he does offer a low floor, even in a good matchup.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis gets six targets against the Bengals.

Lewis caught three passes in Jacksonville's win, gaining 49 yards. The veteran tight end will have some good weeks, but he's not a reliable fantasy option.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis scores in Jags' win.

Lewis caught two of three targets for 29 yards and a touchdown against the Colts. The touchdown, which was Lewis' fourth of the season (he had three in one game against Baltimore), came on a very nice catch in the back of the end zone on a fade route where he used his huge 6'6" frame to his advantage. Lewis has had more games without receptions (four) than with (three) this season, so he's not an advisable fantasy option.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis catches one pass in Week 5.

Lewis' reception was for 14 yards in the win. He had three touchdowns in Week 3, but this was his only reception other than that game this season.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis explodes for three touchdowns in London.

Lewis caught four passes for 62 yards and three touchdowns against the Ravens. Congrats to those that put Lewis in their lineups, as it might end up being the top tight end performance of the week.

Marcedes Lewis | Packers TE

Marcedes Lewis catches two-of-four targets in exhibition against Tampa Bay.

The Jaguars tight end had 22 yards on his two receptions. The quarterback situation is totally up in the air, which could impact Lewis' fantasy value; but he's unlikely to put up numbers to make him a reliable fantasy option, regardless.
