Marcedes Lewis injury update: Ruled out, has no fantasy value

Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis has been ruled out with a calf injury for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He tried to practice on Wednesday, but had to leave early.

Lewis shocked the football world with his 10-TD season back in 2010, but he's had just four in the 31 games over the last two seasons. Some of it isn't his fault with the lack of production out of the QB spot, but he's clearly not that same guy that posted that outburst. The Jaguars are also going to be without receiver Justin Blackmon and are a bit shorthanded vs. the Chiefs.

Fantasy impact: The Chiefs have a sub-par D, so the Jaguars could have some success. Cecil Shorts should be busy, but there's really no other pass-catching guy worth starting. If you're in an extremely deep league, Allen Reisner will get the start. There are probably about 30 better plays in fantasy, though.
