Fantasy Football Outlook: Lewis bounced back after a poor 2011 season and proved to be a functional low-end starter in fantasy leagues down the stretch. Perhaps it’s the play of Blaine Gabbert that has cooled Lewis off from his breakout 2010 season, but we shouldn’t expect much from Lewis in his current situation.
Look to Lewis as nothing more than depth on your roster, and is likely worth passing leagues with less than 12 teams.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections
Marcedes Lewis is a quality NFL tight end, as even his new Head Coach Mike Mularkey said he might be the best blocking tight end in football. Problem is, fantasy owners don’t receive points for run blocking, and with Blaine Gabbert at quarterback, Lewis is a TE2 at best.
Consider his 2010 performance a career year and stay away from Lewis on draft day.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections
While I was impressed by Marcedes Lewis’s yard per catch average in 2009, I never thought he would go on to have the season he did in 2010. In the end, his production makes sense as receiver Mike Sims-Walkerfigured to be the main option in this passing game but was a horrible flop and Lewis proved he was ready for an expanded role in the offense.Defenses will give Lewis much more attention this season but he should continue to be a starting tight end in at least 12 team leagues as the Jaguars will need to throw to someone. Lewis never showed much in the red zone area until last year but I believe he can continue his success in that area with at least seven touchdowns.

Marcedes Lewis has the talent to be a bigger part of the Jaguars’ offense. Last season Lewis posted a yard per catch average of over 16 yards. With a need in the passing game for more production than just Mike Sims-Walker, expect Lewis to get opportunities.
2010 Fantasy Football Outlook
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: Marcedes Lewis saw fewer receptions in 2009 than the year before but he did have a ridiculous yard per catch average of 16.2. This was about the only solid stat Lewis had for the season has he failed to reach 500 yards receiving and only posted two touchdowns.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: David Garrard is desperate for someone in the passing game to step up other than Mike Sims-Walker. Lewis is the kind of talent that seems to be just good enough to have a sparkle of hope but not good enough to deliver.
Still this team does have a serious need for production in the passing game and if their secondary should continue to struggle, they will have not have choice but to keep up by throwing the football more. While Lewis isn’t a good option to select on draft day he is the kind of player you could use in a pinch for help throughout the year.
- Decent Quarterback
- Good Weather For Passing
- Not Productive Enough
