Marcedes Lewis stays hot, keeps finding end zone and fantasy points

Sam Greenwood

The Jaguars tight end was a surprisingly useful target against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis caught four passes for 54 yards and a touchdown in the team's 27-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 15. Lewis now has a touchdown in three straight games.

Fantasy impact: With teammate Cecil Shorts III (groin) sitting out the game against the Bills, quarterback Chad Henne needed a target to turn to. In Week 15 it was his tight end.

Lewis had missed most of the season with a calf injury. He's a big target who once scored double-digit touchdowns in a season. He's a few years removed from that kind of production.

That said, fantasy owners might now want to consider taking a look at Lewis, as he's recently demonstrated a nose for the end zone. The Jaguars as a team are playing better football lately and they have no reason to rush back Shorts. That means Lewis could be a sneaky tight end to start in Week 16.
