Dion Lewis a roster lock for New England
New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis is a roster lock, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.
LeGarrette Blount is no longer in the picture, but James White is still in town and the Patriots added Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead in the offseason. Lewis' roster spot has been in question of late but Reiss believes Lewis will play limited snaps and provide explosiveness and quickness from the running back spot.
numberFire's models project Lewis for 515 total yards and 3.9 total touchdowns on 108 touches spread across the Patriots' rushing and passing games. In fantasy, he's RB54 in our 2017 rankings.
