Dion Lewis Out For Season
Patriots Running Backs have always been extremely difficult to predict, but Lewis was a little bit different.
Among Pats backs who have played in at least 5 games since 2012, Lewis had far and away the highest consistency score (games played with at least 15 DK fantasy points). He had 15+ FP in 5 of his 6 games this season before getting hurt last week.
Comparatively, LeGarrette Blount has 15+ FP in just 6 of his 32 games played for New England.
