Browns RB Dion Lewis helped his case to become the No. 2 back behind Trent Richardson with a solid performance during Thursday night's 27-19 preseason victory over the Rams.

Lewis got things rolling with a 31-yard kickoff return and converted a third-down on the opening drive with a 9-yard blast. On the second possession, he caught a short screen pass from Brandon Weeden and sprinted up the left side for 16 yards before he was forced out of bounds.

Fantasy Impact: 

OC Norv Turner recently compared Lewis to Darren Sproles, whom he coached while in San Diego. Trent Richardson will be the workhorse, but Lewis could rotate in as a change-of-pace back, a la Sproles and LaDainian Tomlinson from a few years ago.
