Jaguars Fantasy Sleeper: Marcedes Lewis

Chris Chambers

The Jacksonville Jaguars don't have many fantasy football stalwarts outside of running back Maurice Jones-Drew. The Jaguars defense for the past few weeks was a good fantasy play, but it's been ripped apart with injuries in the past two weeks. One offensive player who finally emerged last week against the Cleveland Browns however, was tight end Marcedes Lewis. It was something many Jaguars fans had been waiting for all season long and something fantasy owners have likely given up on, so it's possible he's available in most leagues.

On the season, Lewis has just 23 receptions for 234 yards, which is on pace for his lowest season output since his rookie year when he dealt with a high ankle sprain for half the season. Lewis and rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert were able to get into a rhythm last week, with Lewis hauling in 7 receptions for 64 yards. He and Gabbert had such a rapport, that late in the game it was obvious the Browns adjusted their defense to take Lewis out of the game. Lewis can provide a nice security blanket for the rookie since his seeming case of the dropsies is potentially over. If I'm Dirk Koetter, I game plan to feed the football to Lewis.
