Bills | Mike Gillislee expected to be No. 2

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 23:48:53 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB Mike Gillislee is expected to be the team's No. 2 running back even if the team signs another running back. The job is Gillislee's to lose.

Fantasy Tip: With Karlos Williams suspended four games, Gillislee will have a chance to contribute early in the season. Williams came to camp overweight before the suspension, and it could give Gillislee an extended period to make worth of his RB5 flyer.

Bills | Two Buffalo RBs could earn playing time

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 14:44:05 -0700

Buffalo Bills RBs Mike Gillislee and Jonathan Williams could earn some playing time during training camp if RB Karlos Williams is still overweight when he reports for camp.

Fantasy Tip: Karlos Williams is still expected to have a solid role on offense in 2016, but Jonathan Williams and Gillislee could earn touches with strong preseasons. Karlos Williams should be a late-round option in most leagues, but the other running backs probably should be avoided.

Bills | Karlos Williams has gained weight

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 22:09:43 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB Karlos Williams was carrying extra weight during minicamp, and said he ate so his pregnant fiance wouldn't feel bad. He has plenty of time to get into shape, but he'll need to be in top form to hold off hungry RBs Mike Gillislee, James Wilder Jr. and Jonathan Williams.

Fantasy Tip: Williams looked like a No. 1 tailback last season when given the chance to carry the load, but the fact he isn't in top shape is a concern. Wait to see how he shapes up in training camp and the preseason before risking anything more than a late-round flier on him.

Bills | Trio of Buffalo RBs see important reps

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 19:07:55 -0700

Buffalo Bills RBs Mike Gillislee, James Wilder Jr. and Jonathan Williams saw the reps in practice Wednesday, June 15, with RBs LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams sidelined. Williams was most impressive in the practice, showing surprising ability to shift direction and make defenders miss.

Fantasy Tip: McCoy and Karlos Williams are the top two backs, but the rest of the jobs behind them are wide open. We've seen before that the No. 3 back in Buffalo can be valuable, especially with McCoy's propensity for injury of late. For now, the winner of the No. 3 battle isn't worth drafting in most fantasy leagues, but watch the early-season returns and the waiver wire. Know the depth chart in case injury strikes one of the top two.

Bills | Mike Gillislee finds end zone

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 14:58:36 -0800

Buffalo Bills RB Mike Gillislee rushed for 93 yards and one touchdown on nine carries against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16. He also caught two passes for 16 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee's role on offense in Week 17 will be determined by LeSean McCoy's health. Gillislee could see a solid amount of touches next week if McCoy is still out and could be a solid option on FantasyScore.

Buffalo Bills RB Mike Gillislee carried four times for 81 yards and a touchdown in the Week 15 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also had two receptions for two yards.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee still doesn't see enough touches to warrant usage in anything but the deepest of fantasy leagues at this point.

Fri, 22 Aug 2014 05:34:39 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Damien Williams has leapfrogged RBs Daniel Thomas and Mike Gillislee on the depth chart.

Miami Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas could struggle to make the team this fall. He has been solid but unspectacular in camp, while RB Mike Gillislee has been more active. Thomas also is without the regime that drafted him.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno has health issues

Thu, 19 Jun 2014 14:23:08 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno (undisclosed) is fighting a medical issue during minicamp this week, according to a source. The source said Moreno has been dealing with the undisclosed injury for a couple of weeks and needed time off to recover. Moreno has barely been involved in 7-on-7 and team drills during last week's organized team activities and this week's mandatory minicamp. He's spent the time working behind RBs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas, and even RBs Mike Gillislee and Damien Williams have seen more repetitions than Moreno.

Fantasy Tip: The move to Miami from Denver sets Moreno up to be a big disappointment for fantasy players, and the fact that he's injured and not receiving valuable reps with his new team is another giant red flag. Miller should be bumped up a tad in your current offseason rankings. Perhaps Moreno's presence will give Miller the kick he needs to finally produce.

Dolphins | Knowshon Moreno not worried

Miami Dolphins RB Knowshon Moreno spent most of his time in practice Wednesday, June 18, either holding his helmet or working on the side with a trainer. RBs Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas and Mike Gillislee have been taking nearly all of the first-team snaps in offseason workouts, but Moreno isn't worried about his status. "We're all pushing each other," Moreno said. "I'm working on the little things and competing. Everything will take care of itself. I just want to do what I have to do to help my team win."

Dolphins | Lamar Miller in lead for lead back role

Thu, 30 May 2013 11:58:04 -0700

Miami Dolphins RB Lamar Miller has a leg up on the competition to start at running back in 2013 although Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin considers the competition wide open, and Daniel Thomas, Mike Gillislee, Jonas Gray and Marcus Thigpen also are all competing for the starting job.

Fantasy Tip: This is a battle that will likely play out through training camp and preseason games. Keep an eye on how the running backs are used in training camp and preseason. Also, Joe Philbin used a running back by committee approach in 2012, which hurt the value of all involved.

Lions | Looking for RB

Fri, 25 Jan 2013 11:35:29 -0800

Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said the team is searching for a running back in this year's draft. "We need that shifty back that can come in and be that change-of-pace guy who can catch passes out of the backfield, a guy that can run routes and get one-on-one with a linebacker," Mayhew said. "That's what Jahvid gave us, a guy with some juice, some elusiveness." Oregon RB Kenjon Barner, Stanford RB Stepfan Taylor and Florida RB Mike Gillislee were the most impressive at the Senior Bowl this week, and Taylor is the most complete back of the three.
