Patriots | Mike Gillislee the favorite to start?

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 14:29:47 -0700

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee appears to be the frontrunner for the Patriots' starting running back job, according to Jim McBride of the Boston Globe, although he is expected to be part of a committee.

Fantasy Tip: Dion Lewis, James White and Rex Burkhead will push Gillislee for meaningful playing time in a crowded backfield. Gillislee is already an under-the-radar fantasy asset. If he does earn most of the snaps and can serve as the Pats' primary goal-line back in place of LeGarrette Blount then he will surprise some people in 2017.

Patriots | Dion Lewis' roster spot likely safe

Sun, 28 May 2017 08:08:36 -0700

New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis still has a spot on the club despite the additions of Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead this offseason, likely as a kickoff returner and reserve running back who will play 15 to 20 snaps per game, per ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis showed off his trademark burst in OTAs per Reiss, who believes the team will "carefully manage" the injury-prone running back. James White is the favorite to remain the team's primary passing-down back, leaving Lewis' owners in a tough spot. Consider White a solid mid-round option in PPR leagues and Lewis more of a late-round gamble.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee terms

Tue, 02 May 2017 06:00:08 -0700

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee's two-year, $6.4 million deal includes $4 million in 2017 via a $1.5 million guaranteed salary, a $2 million roster bonus and $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses. He's scheduled to make $2.4 million in 2018 with a $1.9 million salary and $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee is going to run the ball, but with so many capable backs you have to wonder if 10 carries is the ceiling for him most games. He produced a lot in a little window with 5.7 yards per carry and eight touchdowns in 101 rushes. He'll be a potential flex back with some risk/reward in fantasy.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee will receive carries

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 16:44:43 -0700

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee is expected to receive a role like the one free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) had this past season.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee probably will receive a majority of the carries in the running game and likely will only see a few targets in the passing game. He was very successful in his limited playing time in 2017 and could be a No. 3 running back for fantasy owners.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee officially joins Patriots

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 13:05:09 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB Mike Gillislee's two-year, $6.4 million offer sheet was not matched by the Bills, thus officially making him a member of the New England Patriots, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots' backfield is officially a crapshoot. With Dion Lewis, James White and Rex Burkhead, among others, already in the mix, Gillislee's touches will be limited. Trying to figure out who Bill Belichick will utilize any given week could turn into regret.

Bills | BUF holding off on Mike Gillislee decision

Sat, 22 Apr 2017 08:04:28 -0700

The Buffalo Bills have until Monday, April 24, to decide whether or not they plan on matching the two-year, $6.4 million offer from the New England Patriots for restricted free-agent RB Mike Gillislee.

Fantasy Tip: There is some speculation the Bills are leaning toward matching the Patriots' offer after deciding almost immediately last year he would not do the same with then-RFA Chris Hogan. Buffalo probably also has no desire to lose a productive backup like Gillislee to its division rival just so he can come back and haunt the Bills twice a year for each of the next two seasons. If he remains a Bill, Gillislee would remain one of the top handcuffs in fantasy.

Patriots | Pats offer contract to Mike Gillislee

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 10:40:41 -0700

The New England Patriots have offered Buffalo Bills restricted free-agent RB Mike Gillislee a two-year, $6.4 million contract, according to a source. The first year of the deal is worth $4 million.

Fantasy Tip: Interesting play. The Pats have moved on from LeGarrette Blount, for all intents and purposes, and it appears the Adrian Peterson intrigue has been shelved. Gillislee showed flashes of brilliance as a spell and situational back in 2016. He would be part of a committee in New England, as well. Think RB4 value for now.
