2020 Fantasy Outlook
Gilmore is coming off a 2019 campaign in which he logged 49 tackles and a career-high six picks. In the process, the 29-year-old was named AP Defensive Player of the Year. While Gilmore's value to the Patriots as a shut-down option is obvious, his IDP utility hinges on his luck in the ball-hawking department. A regression in that category is plausible in 2020, and in such a context Gilmore would fall into the category of players whose value in real terms doesn't necessarily translate to fantasy.

Gilmore (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve by the Patriots on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
The move to IR was anticipated after Gilmore suffered a partially-torn quadriceps in Sunday's loss to Miami. The NFL Defensive Player of the Year for 2019 should be able to return in time for the start of next season, when he will be in the final campaign of a five-year contract. Jonathan Jones is likely to receive the majority of Gilmore's usual snaps over the final two games of the season.

Expectations were high after Gilmore signed a five-year, $65 million contract with the Patriots last year, but the 27-year-old endured a rough start to his 2017 campaign. His play improved as the season rolled along, however, and the 27-year-old is poised to remain a mainstay in the New England secondary for the foreseeable future. On the heels of a season in which he notched 50 tackles and two interceptions in 13 games, Gilmore is a solid but not spectacular IDP option heading into the 2018 campaign.
Gilmore, who landed a five-year, $65 million contract with the Patriots that includes $40 million in guaranteed money, was widely viewed as the top cornerback on the free-agent market this offseason. The 6-1, 190-pounder, who the Bills selected 10th overall in the 2012 NFL Draft, is coming off a 2016 campaign in which he recorded five picks and 48 tackles in 15 games, en route to earning his first Pro Bowl nod. He's slated to start at right cornerback for the Patriots opposite Malcolm Butler.
Gilmore is considered one of the best cornerbacks in the league when healthy, but staying healthy has been his problem considering he has missed 11 games during the past three seasons due to injury. That being said, Gilmore enters camp in 2016 with a clean bill of health, and if he is able to stay healthy, should become a very nice IDP option this season.
Gilmore is a talented corner and one of the leaders of the Bills' secondary. As one of the more unheralded stars in the league he is a possible value pick in deep IDP drafts.
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.
