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.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has been linked to a few teams but likely will have to wait until after the draft to sign with a team. He probably will be part of a committee with his next team but could still be a No. 3 running back in some leagues because of his touchdown potential.

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.

Fantasy Tip: With Garoppolo slated for backup duty again in 2017, he won't have much fantasy value outside of keeper leagues.

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo figures to be the target of several last-ditch trade attempts from the Cleveland Browns leading up to the start of the 2017 NFL Draft, but the Boston Herald's Karen Guregian considers a potential deal a "long shot" that would require an "overwhelming offer".
Fantasy Tip: The Patriots have stood firm all spring on Garoppolo and consider him more valuable than the 12th overall selection, while the Browns have shown no desire to trade the No. 1 overall pick, so don't expect a deal to happen between now and Thursday. Texas A&M's Myles Garrett remains the favorite for the top pick, although the Browns' front office and coaching staff is reportedly split between him and North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky.

Fantasy Tip: These guys have a lot of running backs and only so many plays to go around. White made a strong case for Super Bowl MVP, and he, and Dion Lewis, have the most upside in the backfield that also includes Rex Burkhead and potentially Mike Gillislee. This could be a weekly mix and match, but White is a high-end RB3 right now.

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB James White's three-year contract extension is worth as much as $15 million, according to a source. The deal includes $4.69 million in guaranteed money.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots backfield is pretty stacked now with the likes of James White, Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead and possibly Mike Gillislee, among others. Talk about a committee. This backfield could turn into a crapshoot if all these guys stay healthy. White and Lewis have the most upside, but they're all better fits for PPR leagues.
