FANTASY FOOTBALL BREAKING NEWS: CONCERNS GROWING ABOUT DION LEWIS BEING READY FOR OPENER

New England Patriots running back Dion Lewis is still not practicing with the team and there are internal rumblings that he may not be ready to go in Week 1.  Lewis is recovering from the torn ACL that cost him half of the 2015 season and the fact he has not practiced yet has caused some alarms to go off around the team.  LeGarrette Blount continues to get the majority of work in the Patriot backfield and he figures to dominate touches if Lewis can't answer the bell right away. 

Analysis:  Hmmm.  Lewis was being counted on as a prime PPR receiving weapon for the Pats and those that take part in fantasy football so this is disconcerting.  Clearly this needs to be watched through the next couple of weeks but in instances such as this, where there is smoke there is fire.  Downgrade Lewis on your PPR lists.
