    Bills' Mike Gillislee: Inked for the future

    Gillislee signed a contract extension Monday, BuffaloBills.com reports. Gillislee came out of nowhere to play in the final five games of the season, scoring three times and averaging a slick 5.68 yards per carry. However, we imagine the team is eyeing him for the No. 3 role next season, given that LeSean McCoy will be healthy again and Karlos Williams fits the bill of a strong No. 2.

    Bills' Mike Gillislee: 24 touches in win over Jets

    Gillislee rushed 24 times for 28 yards and failed to catch his only target during Sunday's 22-17 win over the Jets. Starting running back Karlos Williams, who got the start in place of the injured LeSean McCoy (knee), was knocked out of the game in the first half with his own knee injury, leaving Gillislee to lead the backfield. While he got plenty of touches, he was remarkably poor with them, especially considering nine of his 28 yards came on one carry. With McCoy and Williams both expected to be healthy well before the start of training camp next year, there likely won't be enough touches for Gillislee to make a fantasy impact.

    Bills' Mike Gillislee: Scores for third straight game

    Gillislee ran for 93 yards and a touchdown on nine carries, and caught both of his targets for 16 additional yards in Sunday's win over the Cowboys. Gillislee saw 11 touches while Karlos Williams got 19 in the absence of LeSean McCoy (knee), but the former Florida product was still able to finish as Buffalo's leader in yards from scrimmage. Look for Gillislee to stay involved in the offense next week against the Jets, as his recent high level of play should earn the 25-year-old some extra burn. Gillislee now has touchdowns in three straight games, and an incredible 10.4 yards per carry average on 23 totes this season.

    Bills' Mike Gillislee: Should see carries

    Gillislee's teammate LeSean McCoy (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Vic Carlucci of The Buffalo News reports. Karlos Williams is listed as probable, so it looks like Williams and Gillislee will share McCoy's usual workload. The team isn't saying who the starter will be (yet), but Williams, when healthy, has been the backup to McCoy all season and if he's close to full health he'd probably be the slightly better fantasy play. That said, Gillislee has looked great in limited time and no matter what he'll get his chances Sunday as well.

    Bills' Mike Gillislee: More opportunity in store?

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Gillislee's teammate, LeSean McCoy, tore his MCL on Sunday and is considered week-to-week for the final two weeks of the regular season. At the very least, McCoy's status is very much in doubt for this week's game against the Cowboys. Earlier in the season, surprising rookie Karlos Williams would have been the no-brainer replacement, but the Bills are easing Williams back from a shoulder injury and Gillislee has been worked into the offense just as much. It's possible the two could split carries this week if McCoy does get ruled out.

    Bills' Mike Gillislee: Gillislee finds the end zone against Washington

    Gillislee rushed for 81 yards on four carries and added two catches for two yards in Sunday's loss to Washington. Sixty of Gillislee's yards came on a little off tackle to the left that the third-year back cut up field for a score. Gillislee's touchdown rumble came a drive after starter LeSean McCoy went down with a knee injury. It is believed the McCoy's injury is relatively minor and that he will be day-to-day moving forward. Should he miss any time, Gillislee would obviously be in position for some additional touches. He has scored both of his touchdowns this season in the past two weeks.

    Bills' Mike Gillislee: Scores first NFL touchdown

    Gillislee carried three times for 24 yards and caught one ball for six yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. The score was his first pro touchdown. Gillislee will have to relinquish the No. 2 role behind Shady McCoy as soon as rookie Karlos Williams is able to return, but Williams has missed the last two games and didn't even see the practice field last week. McCoy has a strong hold on the bulk of the carries, but the Bills don't seem to use him around the goal line as much as some of the league's other bell cow backs, so whoever backs him up always has a chance at the occasional score.

    Bills' Mike Gillislee: Logs some backup carries

    Gillislee picked up seven carries for 41 yards - a 5.9 average - in Sunday's win over the Texans. LeSean McCoy is the main carrier on this team, but with top backup Karlos Williams out with a concussion the Bills let Gillislee get some work in Sunday, just days after being promoted from the practice squad. At one point McCoy had to get checked out for a head injury, but wasn't deemed to have a concussion. Such an injury would have left Gillislee as the top back, as the team already seems to like him better in the run game than plodding veteran Anthony Dixon.

    Bills' Mike Gillislee: Will join Bills' active roster

    Gillislee will be promoted to the Bills' active roster prior to Sunday's game against the Texans, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. Gillislee will be brought up from the Bills' practice squad with Karlos Williams (shoulder) out this week. He will work as the team's third running back behind LeSean McCoy and Anthony Dixon.
