Patriots | Mike Gillislee runs for 69 yards, TD

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 18:54:12 -0700

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee rushed 18 times for 69 yards and a touchdown in the Week 2 game against the Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee has managed four rushing touchdowns through his first two games, basically filling the role of the departed LeGarrette Blount in the New England backfield. He has obviously emerged as a must-start fantasy option across the board heading into Week 3 against the visiting Texans.

Patriots | James White saw bulk of snaps Thursday

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 09:37:28 -0700

New England Patriots RB James White played in 43 of 81 offensive snaps in a Week 1 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday, Sept. 7. Mike Gillislee finished second on the team with 24, Rex Burkhead had 10 and Dion Lewis tallied six.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots' committee backfield remained very much intact in the opener, although Gillislee certainly appears to have the edge at the goal line, as expected. Burkhead got the start, but it was White who saw the most playing time - primarily as when the Patriots used tempo. For now, Gillislee has the look of a volatile RB3/flex option who will pile up short-yardage scores when given the opportunity, while White is also a flex play in PPR. The other two backs are complete dart throws at the moment.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee scores three times

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 22:20:19 -0700

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee carried the ball 15 times for 45 yards and three touchdowns during the team's Week 1 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Tip: Good news: Gillislee scored three times. Bad news: Gillislee got stuffed on two separate 4th-and-short attempts. Sure, fantasy owners will take three TDs every single time, but the 26-year-old averaged just 3.0 yards per carry and wasn't involved as a receiver. Still, Gillislee got as many carries as the other three backs combined and remains a high-end RB3.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee makes immediate impact

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 18:37:58 -0700

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee made his preseason debut Friday, Aug. 25, finishing with eight carries for 38 yards and a touchdown against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: He looked good in first game action for the Patriots. New England's backfield is murky, but Gillislee is probably the best bet to fill a LeGarrette Blount-type role. He is a high-upside RB3.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee fully healthy

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 07:43:18 -0700

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) said he's 100 percent and flying around the practice field.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee is being overdrafted in a lot of leagues. The Pats' roster is loaded, and they can spotlight any given player any week. Be very careful when drafting him as anything more than a high-end RB3 carries risk.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee full go in practice

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 15:10:03 -0700

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, Aug. 22, after being limited the last two weeks.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots don't even have a depth chart for their running backs right now, so it's officially a crapshoot. Gillislee, James White and Rex Burkhead, among others, will all be splitting playing time as long as they're healthy. Gillislee is the favorite for goal-line work, but draft at your own risk.

Patriots | No depth chart at RB in New England

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 09:26:05 -0700

New England Patriots RBs Mike Gillislee, Rex Burkhead, James White and Dion Lewis form a "deep, talented group" and any one of the four could be featured at any given time, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee, who was expected to be the early-down and goal-line back in New England this year, has missed the last two weeks with a hamstring injury, giving Burkhead time to shine. White is locked into a passing-game role, while Lewis figures to contribute in just about every way possible on offense and special teams. Owners may be able to hit big on occasion in this backfield on a weekly basis, but all of them will be hard to trust as anything more than flex options.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee expected to sit out

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 11:57:59 -0700

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) is not expected to play in the preseason game against the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee has missed most of training camp because of his hamstring injury and there is no timetable to return. He is expected to receive most of the carries when he is healthy but will also share playing time with other running backs on the roster. He could be a No. 2 running back or flex option if he is ready for the season.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee remains sidelined

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 15:43:20 -0700

New York England RB Mike Gillislee (hamstring) did not travel with the team for their joint practices with the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee has missed a lot of practice time since the start of training camp because of his injury and there is no timetable for his return. He was expected to have a role similar to LeGarrette Blount had last season, but he may have a smaller role in the offense if he does not return soon. He has a chance to be a No. 2 running back or a flex option if he receives most of the carries.

Patriots | Dion Lewis, James White listed on first-team

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 11:20:21 -0700

New England Patriots RBs Dion Lewis and James White are ahead of Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee on the team's unofficial depth chart.

Fantasy Tip: Unofficial depth charts in early August before even one preseason game has been played are usually pretty meaningless, but Gillislee on the third team is notable, even if he has been sidelined for approximately a week due to a hamstring injury. Lewis and White have been with the team longer than Burkhead, which likely explains why they "rank" higher. Burkhead is still the player to target here if Gillislee can't get healthy soon. White is a RB3 in PPR, while Lewis is worthy of a bench spot in fantasy.
