Bills' Mike Tolbert: Sparsely used in Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolbert compiled five yards on three carries and reeled in his sole pass for two yards during Sunday's 9-3 loss at Carolina.

Tolbert does most of his damage in the red zone as a goal-line vulture, but the Bills didn't pass midfield until the first minute of the third quarter and only incurred as deep as the Panthers' 27-yard line in Week 2. As a result, his bull-dozing style didn't come into play against the organization that employed him the past five seasons. With the similarly staunch Broncos coming to town next Sunday, Tolbert will likely find the going tough for the second game in a row.

Bills' Mike Tolbert: Heavily involved in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolbert rushed 12 times for 42 yards and a touchdown while adding a 12-yard catch on his lone target in Sunday's Week 1 win over the Jets.

Tolbert got some extra work while LeSean McCoy briefly exited with a wrist injury, but his most notable play came on a one-yard touchdown run. His downhill running style fits perfectly with Buffalo's run-heavy scheme in close, so Tolbert could emerge as a consistent vulture by the goal line, much to the chagrin of McCoy's owners.

Bills' Mike Tolbert: No. 2 for now
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Following the Jonathan Williams cut, the Bills are expected to use Tolbert as the No. 2 option behind LeSean McCoy, but coach Sean McDermott added the team will take a committee approach to backup running back, Mike Rodak of reports. "All bring something a little bit different to the table. That's a good thing," McDermott said. "Then with the element of special teams, we were able to stay balanced as a roster, for the most part, in all three phases of the game."

Tolbert won't be getting a ton of carries, but they may be important ones if the Bills opt to protect McCoy around the goal line. And with Williams gone, he's by far the best insurance plan available.

Bills' Mike Tolbert: Could see added duties
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Following news that Jonathan Williams was waived Sunday, Tolbert figures to see an expanded role in the Buffalo offense behind starting RB LeSean McCoy, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

With Williams out of the mix, for now, it looks like Tolbert profiles as the team's top option behind McCoy. With Mike Gillislee no longer on the team, a slice of Buffalo's goal-line work could be on tap for Tolbert, thus making him a potential late-round dart in TD-heavy formats. The team's backfield also includes Joe Banyard and Taiwan Jones, though it's still possible that Buffalo has other moves in store to shore up the team's running back situation.

Bills' Mike Tolbert: Scores at goal line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tolbert had five carries for 19 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens.

Tolbert scored a one-yard touchdown late in the first half, and then opened the second half as Buffalo's tailback. While Jonathan Williams (knee) presumably would've served as the No. 2 back if he'd been available, Tolbert's goal-line carry may not have been a fluke, considering he was once known for his short-yardage prowess. Granted, he's only scored one rushing touchdown since the end of the 2013 season.
