Dion Lewis may lead the Patriots backfield on Saturday
New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis may lead the team's backfield in Saturday's game against the Houston Texans, per Ben Volin of the Boston Globe.
This obviously isn't anything definitive, but Volin said that he "would count on" Lewis being the team's lead back today after seeing only one fewer touch than LeGarrette Blount over the past three games.
Our models project Lewis for 10.9 carries, 42.0 yards and 0.29 touchdowns on the ground, as well as 2.3 receptions and 16.0 yards through the air against the Texans.
