Wildcard Weekend Fun Facts


Keenan Lewis Concussion• Last season, CB Keenan Lewis (+8.8) worked under Dick LeBeau in Pittsburgh. He primarily played zone coverage, and was only fantasy relevant during bye weeks, in the deepest of leagues. He finished the season with 71 tackles (56 solo) and 23 passes defended. While the Steelers said that they wanted to resign Lewis, it was quickly obvious that they would not be able to afford him with their cap situation. Lewis signed with the Saints, where Rob Ryan had him playing plenty of man defense this season.

On Sunday, Lewis was lined up at left corner, where he was having his best game of the season. Lewis was credited with five solo tackles during the game. He had also held Jason Avant to two catches for eight yards, when he was covering him. But it was his work on DeSean Jackson (+20.2) that was really helping New Orleans. Lewis had held Jackson without a catch on the day. In fact, with Lewis playing so well, Nick Foles had only been able to target Jackson once.

But then it happened.
