Marcedes Lewis continues fantasy scoring streak with Sunday touchdown

The Jaguars tight end hasn't been accruing yardage, but the scores have been there. We break down the fantasy implications.

Even as he has struggled to accumulate yardage, Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis has had a nose for the end zone lately, keeping him fantasy relevant. The tight end scored again Sunday, though it wasn't enough as the Jaguars lost 20-16 to the Tennessee Titans.

Lewis' touchdown in Sunday's game was his fourth in four games. After missing the team's first six games -- and being barely a factor in the next five -- the tight end has averaged 3.3 catches and 10 fantasy points in his last four, despite topping out at 54 receiving yards in a game.

Fantasy impact: Even with his hot streak, Lewis is far from the top tier of tight ends. Still, he's in the next group, a low-end TE1 or high-end TE2, and fantasy owners who are still playing in Week 17 but are without Jordan Cameron or similar would do well to look his way as the Jaguars face the Indianapolis Colts.
