Lewis was with a new team for the first time in his career last season, playing with the Packers. He played all 16 games with Green Bay but had just three receptions for 39 yards. He was used more as a blocker than pass catcher at the position. He re-signed with the Packers this offseason and is likely to serve a similar role. Lewis is 35 years old and his days of starting are over, but he can help in a reserve role. Lewis is a big target with speed and athleticism. He is an ideal fit for the red zone because of his size and leaping ability.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Lewis is likely to get similar chances to last season, making him a big reach for fantasy teams. He could get around five or so receptions for 50 yards.

Green Bay Packers tight end Marcedes Lewis is looking to expand on his blocking role this season. Lewis is currently one of the team's most senior players on a young roster and was the only one of the 11 unrestricted free agents the Packers re-signed this offseason. New head coach Matt LaFleur said earlier this offseason that the team wants to expand the role he plays in the offense. Lewis will be unlikely to be a player with fantasy value. However, fantasy owners should monitor the situation as it may impact the value of fellow tight end Jimmy Graham.
Free-agent TE Marcedes Lewis (Packers) signed a new one-year deal with the Green Bay Packers Wednesday, March 13, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
