Gillislee's outlook with the Patriots has changed quite a bit since last spring when he was signed to replace LeGarrette Blount as the team's "big back." His projected assignment appeared to carry a degree of TD-upside with it, but after a strong start, things fizzled out for Gillislee in 2017 to the point that he ended up spending a good chunk of the season as a healthy inactive. At this stage, he's simply fighting for a roster spot behind roster locks Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead and James White. Brandon Bolden, Jeremy Hill and undrafted free agent Ralph Webb represent Gillislee's competition on that front and it may take an injury for him to stick around. Though his YPC regressed last season to 3.7, Gillislee did show a nose for the end zone en route to logging a 5.7 mark over his two season with Buffalo, in 2015 and 2016. It's going to take a break for the 27-year-old to re-emerge on the fantasy radar and that break may end up coming in the form of a change of scenery.

  2. Mike Gillislee 2017 Preseason Outlook
    It's been a long road to prominence for Gillislee. Drafted by Miami in 2013, injuries limited him to three games over his first two seasons, and he bounced around before Buffalo gave him a chance late in 2015. He emerged as a short-yardage weapon last year, scoring seven TDs on just 10 carries inside the 5-yard line. He runs with power, and while there isn't much wiggle to his game, he's learned to hammer through the first hole he sees. The Patriots signed him to replace LeGarrette Blount, and given Blount's league-leading 18 rushing TDs in 2016, Gillislee is in an ideal situation to build on last season's success. New England's backfield is crowded, however, so while he should get plenty of scoring opportunities, he's unlikely to get enough snaps to demonstrate that he's capable of being more than a battering ram.
  3. Mike Gillislee 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Late in 2015, Gillislee showed some flashes of potential, averaging 5.7 yards per carry and scoring three touchdowns in the final five games. However, his lone chance with double-digit carries came in the last game of the season and was a disaster with 24 carries for 28 yards, no touchdowns or receptions, and a lost fumble. In an offense centered on LeSean McCoy, second-year runner Karlos Williams was presumed to be the top backup, but his four-game suspension and subsequent release opened the door for the likes of Gillislee, Reggie Bush and fifth-round draft pick Jonathan Williams to vie for the role. Bush may have a bigger role as a receiver, but Gillislee is the favorite to open the season as McCoy's top backup for early downs.
  4. Mike Gillislee 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Gillislee was the Dolphins’ fifth round pick in the 2013 draft, but after playing in only three games (six carries) that season, he missed all of the 2014 campaign due to a hamstring injury. What can we expect this season? Well, he will have to fight for a job in a Dolphins’ backfield that is plenty deep entering the upcoming campaign. Gillislee may have the upper hand seeing as though he was the team’s draft pick, but he could also be behind the eight ball after seeing little to no game action over the past two seasons.
  5. Mike Gillislee 2014 Preseason Outlook
    The fifth-round draft pick out of Florida was placed on IR by the Dolphins.
  6. Mike Gillislee 2013 Preseason Outlook
    The Dolphins spent a fifth-round pick on Gillislee after he rushed for 1,152 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior at Florida. While Gillislee won't make a lot of NFL linebackers and defensive backs miss, he does show promising vision and toughness going between the tackles and is a mature pass-blocker, which could earn him third-down work. The 5-11, 210-pound rookie could leapfrog the underwhelming Daniel Thomas in the preseason to become Lamar Miller's primary backup.
