Browns trade for RB Dion Lewis


Browns trade for RB Dion Lewis

The Eagles finally found a team that would take Dion Lewis @DionLewis28 off their hands. Philadelphia traded the third-year running back on Thursday to the Browns, who sent linebacker Emmanuel Acho @thEMANacho the other way. In Cleveland, Lewis will attempt to earn the No. 2 spot on the depth chart behind Trent Richardson. That spot is currently occupied by Montario Hardesty @MoHard20. Lewis has rushed 36 times for 171 yards and two touchdowns in two seasons.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Eagles have been trying to deal Lewis for the past couple of years. He didn't have much hope in Philly with LeSean McCoy and Bryce Brown in front of him. Lewis won't have much more fantasy value in Cleveland, but he has a chance to unseat Hardesty, who isn't exactly great. No matter who wins that battle in training camp, the Browns have already hinted that they plan to basically run Richardson until his legs fall off this season.
