Bills' Mike Tolbert: May spell McCoy on some passing downs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolbert could have a role on passing downs, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW 7 ABC Buffalo reports.

The Bills signed Tolbert and fellow fullback Patrick DiMarco at the beginning of free agency, with the latter profiling as a traditional lead blocker, while the former figures to operate more like a specialized backup tailback. Tolbert isn't quick or shifty enough to justify a high volume of carries, but he could be useful for passing downs and short-yardage situations, offering an unusual mix of size, receiving skills and pass-blocking ability. In the event of a LeSean McCoy injury, the Bills likely would turn to Jonathan Williams as the primary ballcarrier, with Tolbert then handling most of the passing-down work.

Bills' Mike Tolbert: Signs with Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolbert signed a contract with the Bills on Wednesday, Mike Rodak of ESPN reports.

Tolbert's signing with Buffalo comes as a bit of a surprise, since the team signed fullback Patrick DiMarco earlier in the day Wednesday. However, the Bills are expected to use Tolbert as a short yardage running back rather than a blocking full back. His signing may take some value away from LeSean McCoy. Tolbert had 35 rushes for 114 yards with Carolina last season, and will be 31 years old for the start of the 2017 season.

Mike Tolbert: Released by Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Tolbert was released by Carolina on Tuesday, Max Henson of the Panthers' official site reports.

Tolbert had arguably his least effective year in Carolina in 2016, averaging only 11.6 total yards per game. With younger backs Fozzy Whittaker and Cameron Artis-Payne filling in backup roles behind starter Jonathan Stewart, combined with the fact that Tolbert was due $1.5 million in 2017, the Panthers decided to part ways with the fullback. Tolbert will finish his stint in Carolina with 19 total touchdowns over five years.

Panthers' Mike Tolbert: Production takes hit
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Tolbert rushed 35 times for 114 yards and caught 10 passes (on 15 targets) for 72 yards and a touchdown in 16 games played this season.

Tolbert has long been one of the more utilized fullbacks in the league, giving him unique fantasy value despite his position, particularly given his penchant for finding the end zone. The veteran scored a combined 18 touchdowns in the previous four seasons with the Panthers, but saw his stock fall off significantly with just one trip to paydirt this term. In truth, Tolbert's overall production mirrored what he generated in 2014, except he accomplished his numbers that season in eight fewer games, a testament to how marginalized he became in 2016.

Panthers' Mike Tolbert: Given one carry
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolbert rushed once for three yards in Saturday's loss to the Falcons.

Tolbert enjoyed his best outing of the season with 41 total yards and a touchdown in Week 15, but he wasn't involved much outside of blocking in Carolina's loss over the weekend.
