Player Outlook

Mike Gillislee will hopefully get a second chance to prove he can be a significant contributor for the Patriots after he struggled in 2017. His main competition for a roster spot will come from Jeremy Hill, who was signed as a free agent this offseason, but the Patriots also have Rex Burkhead, rookie Sony Michel and James White to share touches. Gillislee appeared to be the featured running back for the Patriots when last season started, and he scored 34 Fantasy points in a non-PPR league in his first two games of the season thanks to four rushing touchdowns. However, he only scored once more, which happened in Week 16, and he had just one reception for 15 yards all season. In fact, Gillislee found himself a healthy scratch from Weeks 10-15. We'll see what role he plays now that Michel and Hill are on the roster, even though Michel is battling a knee injury in August, but Gillislee is not worth drafting in the majority of leagues. Let him prove himself first and then add him off waivers.

Player News
  • Patriots' Mike Gillislee: Continues slide
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gillislee rushed for 22 yards on nine carries during Thursday's 37-20 win over the Eagles. After barely averaging three yards per carry in extended duty against Washington in the preseason opener, Gillislee managed to find even less consistency against Philadelphia. No team in the league manages running backs like the Patriots, but with James White continuing his role as Swiss Army knife, Jeremy Hill and Brandon Bolden breaking off big runs, and Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead waiting in the wings -- it's unclear what Gillislee brings to the table at this point. He seems like a longshot to make the roster.

  • Patriots' Mike Gillislee: Struggles in opener
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gillislee took 14 carries for 43 yards in Thursday's 26-17 preseason win over Washington. With Sony Michel (knee) and Rex Burkhead (undisclosed) both absent, Gillislee got the start and handled the first carry, but he was thoroughly outplayed by Jeremy Hill, who took 11 carries for 51 yards and a touchdown. Further hurting his cause, Gillislee was involved in a botched handoff with quarterback Danny Etling toward the end of the game, while Hill didn't get any carries after the third quarter. If the two veteran running backs are indeed competing for one roster spot, Hill likely moved ahead of Gillislee with Thursday's performance.
