Bills' Mike Gillislee: Scores in loss to Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gillislee carried 15 times for 40 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's game against the Jets. He also caught his only target for an additional 10 yards in the 30-10 loss.

Gillislee saw his role expand as LeSean McCoy (ankle) was forced to leave the game, and despite his inefficient average of 2.7 yards per carry he was able to carve out a useful fantasy line due to the volume of touches he received. Although Gillislee played second fiddle to McCoy for most of the season, he will finish with an impressive total of eight touchdowns and averaged 5.7 yards per carry overall. He will be a free agent in the offseason and should command interest after a successful campaign as a part-time player in 2016.

Bills' Mike Gillislee: Tallies 91 rushing yards in Week 16 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gillislee gained 91 yards on 11 rushes in Saturday's 34-31 overtime loss to the Dolphins. He also fumbled once but recovered.

Gillislee was able to produce a season-high rushing total despite backfield mate LeSean McCoy amassing 128 yards on the ground in his own right. Gillislee's game-long 35-yard rush also represented his second-longest of the season, and he posted an impressive 8.3 yards per carry. The former Gator has proven himself one of the most capable reserve tailbacks in the league this season, and he'll look to put the finishing touches on a solid season in Week 17 against the Jets.

Bills' Mike Gillislee: Finds end zone again
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gillislee rushed nine times for 37 yards and a score during Sunday's 33-13 win over Cleveland while failing to haul in his only target.

"Touchdown Mike" is up to eight total scores on the season and has seven in the past nine games, an eye-popping total for a guy whose main role is to spell LeSean McCoy. The Bills have galloped for 27 rushing TDs on the season and lead the NFL in almost all running categories, so even though McCoy remains one of the league's better bell-cow backs, there's still enough to go around for Gillislee to have modest value.

Bills' Mike Gillislee: Goal-line role set
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gillislee is now the team's official goal-line back, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn: "Shady is one of the most explosive backs in the league. He can get a lot of his touchdowns from outside the red zone, but Mike is that decisive, no nonsense type runner that you're looking for inside the three, two-yard line. That's his role and everybody in the backfield knows that's his role and he's going to get those touches when we get down there. And Shady is good with that."

This is what's been happening lately anyway, while it may not have been as obvious between the coaching staff not publicly adresseing Gillislee's specific role and his own hamstring injury that's now in the past. Plus, a red-hot McCoy has been scoring on runs outside the five. Still, it's now even more clear that the hard-driving Gillislee will get exclusive action up close, and with six rushing scores on the season and an offense that's headed toward a franchise high in rushing scores, there's no reason Gillislee can't make a run at nine or 10.

Bills' Mike Gillislee: Scores twice at Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gillislee (hamstring) had eight carries for 49 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's 38-24 loss at Oakland.

Gillislee vultured a pair of short touchdowns from LeSean McCoy, who had 190 yards from scrimmage but was held out of the end zone. Gillislee is a solid backup, but it's hard to imagine him having games like this moving forward, unless McCoy suffers an injury.
