Jamal Lewis...Fantasy Dud?

I'd keep him. Once the O-Line improves and they get a fullback in there blocking, they should be going back to the traditional 40 carries a game with 200 yards and a TD.

I think Lewis will rebound this year, though he may not be the "stud" that he was in years past. I read somewhere (sorry, can't remember the source) that the Ravens were going to experiment with the I-formation, which Lewis prefers.

You can get him for pennies on the dollar this week because of his bye. He has a cake schedule for several weeks after the bye and should reassert himself as a solid #2 fantasy RB with #1 RB potential.

I dont care what formation they run if you can't pass the ball then you are going to get over loaded in the box. I mean JLewis line isnt even close to what it use to be.

Yea, but i think Lewis will come out more toward the middle of the year, week 8 and show us some, but nothing like 2 years ago when he ran for 2k

I would like to hear why people think its the OLine - specifically.

Is anyone injured? Is anyone not playing well?

What about JLew's health - wasnt he held back the first 2 games?

What about the FBs health? what kind of injury did he have and when is he supposed to be healthy again?

What was their base formation last yr - did they change that so far this yr?

I guess Im wondering if JLew is one of the bigger buy low candidates right now and Id like some actual logical reasoning rather than the emotional guesses that this thread has produced so far. Any Ravens faithful in the house that want to shed some light on this?
