Lewis had one catch for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 5 win over the Steelers.
Lewis was targeted only twice on an afternoon in which Blake Bortles attempted just 14 passes and registered eight completions. The veteran tight end had a breakout game in Week 3, catching three touchdowns in a win over Baltimore, but he's since returned to being only a minor factor in one of the NFL's least-efficient passing offenses.
Lewis was held without a catch in Sunday's Week 4 loss to the Jets.
After coming out of nowhere to grab three touchdowns in the Jags' Week 3 win over the Ravens, Lewis came back down to Earth in Week 4. The veteran tight end was targeted four times but, like the rest of the Jaguars' receiving corps, fell victim to yet another wildly inaccurate afternoon from Blake Bortles. Even after his Week 3 breakout, Lewis is best avoided in most fantasy formats, as there's little evidence to suggest that he'll be a significant factor in the Jacksonville offense on a week-to-week basis.
Lewis caught four of five targets for 62 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 44-7 win over the Ravens in London.
Held without a catch on four targets over the first two weeks, Lewis shockingly became the first player this season to catch three touchdown passes in a single game. His massive 6-foot-6 frame came in quite useful on scoring passes from 17, 30 and four yards out. Lewis plays the vast majority of offensive snaps and figures to remain a threat in the red zone, but Sunday's outing is still best viewed as an extreme outlier. He only has 31 touchdowns in 157 regular-season games, despite serving as a starter for most of his career. Lewis does draw a favorable Week 4 matchup, heading to New York to face the Jets.
For the second straight week, Lewis was targeted twice but was unable to register a catch on an afternoon in which the Jags' passing offense struggled mightily. With Blake Bortles at the helm, Lewis can be safely ignored in standard-sized leagues, with his only real value coming as a potential touchdown vulture in the red zone -- and even that might be optimistic. Since the start of the 2015 season (28 games played), Lewis has only 36 catches and one touchdown.
As expected, Lewis was not a major part of the game plan, as the Jaguars employed a thoroughly run-heavy approach. While he could have some utility as a red zone target, Lewis does not project to hold much fantasy value this season, despite the Jaguars moving on from Julius Thomas.
