Stephon Gilmore: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Gilmore and Ronald Darby did a fantastic job on the Houston passing attack for most of the game, even shutting down DeAndre Hopkins until Houston's star wideout was able to take advantage of Gilmore's absence. Gilmore is the team's best cornerback and is becoming one of the better ones in football, so the team's challenge to run the table and nab a playoff spot would become increasingly difficult if he's forced to miss any time.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After being a high draft pick and having a strong rookie season, Gilmore took a step back in 2013. Now entering his third season, Gilmore is still entrenched as a starter and will have a chance to prove that he should be considered a top corner in the league. He has all of the talent, tools, and opportunity for a breakout season... he just has to put it all together.
Gilmore established himself as the Bills' top corner as a rookie last season, recording 61 tackles (52 solo), 16 passes defensed, three forced fumbles and one interception.
The No. 10 pick in the 2012 draft, the rookie will have a legitimate chance to start in his first season. The two starting CB spots are thought to be between Gilmore, Aaron Williams, Terrence McGee, and Leodis McKelvin, though the first two are thought to be the early favorites. Gilmore isn't incredibly quick and doesn't have speedy hips, but his size and straightaway speed rate really high and he plays a physical game the Bills should be able to utilize for years.
