24-Year-Old Cornerback – Buffalo Bills
2014 Fantasy Football Outlook
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 pr...
Stephon Gilmore Contract Information:
Signed a four-year deal with the Bills in May of 2012. The deal will pay him about $12 million. The Bills hold a team option for a fifth year.
Coach Doug Marrone said Tuesday that the Bills are going to continue rotating their top three corners - Gilmore, Leodis McKelvin, and Corey Graham - during games, provided all three are healthy, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said Marrone, "All three (are starters). I'm not trying to play games. We've been rotating them from day one since they've been back. I keep saying the same thing. Everyone is trying to pin, 'Who are the two (starters)? Who are the two (starters)?' But we’ve got a pretty good deal going if we have three guys...I firmly believe, with the level that they're playing, that those three players will produce more than if it's just two."

Stephon Gilmore: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Gilmore's ability to play looms large, just like the wide receivers that he (or someone else) will have to cover Sunday. The Bears aren't a team that you want to face without a starting cornerback, but the Bills do have solid depth at the position, and Gilmore seems to be much closer to 'probable' than 'doubtful'. While yet to emerge as a strong IDP option, Gilmore could be a sneaky play for deeper leagues in Week 1, assuming he takes the field. The Chicago offense should provide the Bills' cornerbacks with a decent number of tackle opportunities, and quarterback Jay Cutler has always thrown his fair share of interceptions.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)After a rough preseason, Gilmore appears like he'll be ready to go for opening week in Chicago, where he's expected to start across from Leodis McKelvin. Corey Graham will be the capable third corner in what looks to be a pretty deep group.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
