2016 FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: DION LEWIS HEADED FOR PUP, NEEDS SECOND KNEE SURGERY

Now we know why New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis has yet to return to practice off his ACL surgery from a year ago.  It turns out that Lewis now needs a second surgery on the knee which will put him on PUP for the first six weeks of the season.  There was no official word from the Patriots about what is going on with the knee but clearly the original ACL surgery did not do the trick for Lewis.  This is a decent blow for those who already own Lewis in PPR formats where his excellent receiving ability makes him a solid RB 2.  The fallout here of course is that James White now becomes a major person of interest as a late round pick and this is especially true in PPR formats.  White can catch the football and he also is a decent runner so there is a lot to work with here.  Also LeGarrette Blount will likely dominate carries as well so his position gets better in standard leagues.  Adjust accordingly.
