Marcedes Lewis injury update: Returning tight end still has little fantasy value

Stephen Dunn

Marcedes Lewis has been dealing with a calf issue since the preseason. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis (calf) is listed as probable to face the Colts on Sunday. He was limited in practice all week and may still be dealing with his injury.

The tight end hasn't suited up all year with his somewhat serious calf strain from the preseason. In his absence, the team has been horrendous on offense, with horrible quarterback play and an inept running game.

While the addition of Lewis does help, it's not going to be a game-changing situation. It should help Cecil Shorts a little. Shorts leads the NFL in targets, but he's caught less than 50 percent of the balls thrown to him.

Fantasy impact: Besides Maurice Jones-Drew and Shorts, the Jaguars are hands-off in fantasy. Lewis had a big year a couple seasons ago, but he has really fallen off, and it could be due to Blaine Gabbert. Fantasy owners will want to look elsewhere.
