New England Patriots

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

New England Patriots

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Rex Burkhead

New England Patriots

Sneaky Play In Burkhead


While we are all scrambling to try to figure out the Patriots backfield situation, Burkhead could be a sneaky high upside play. Burkhead and Gillislee will be tied in together as the early down backs until we have clarity.

Fantasy Goo: My advice is to hold off all Patriots RBs until we have some clarity on how they are used respectively. Burkhead though is the only player who I project to see more touches if any other RB is inactive - regardless of which one it is.

Gilislee's workload is biggest question in Week 1


The Patriots have a loaded backfield, so while there was a lot of preseason hype about getting Mike Gilislee, it remains to be seen exactly how Belichick will utilize him. The odds are that he does not have more than 15 carries, and we need to see him on the field in the redzone to feel good about starting him in Week 1.

New England Patriots

Gillislee Ground to Make Up


Gillislee missed time during OTA’s and was sidelined for two weeks during camp with a hamstring injury. "I think he still has quite a ways to go," Belichick said. "We gained some ground last week...We'll continue to keep pushing through it."

Fantasy Goo: Gillislee was being drafted in the 5th round at one point, but he’s starting to slide down to the seventh now. The only back in NE that we can expect any kind of consistency from is White. Burkhead, Gillislee, and Lewis should only be drafted in best-ball drafts because we will probably not be given any indication which one will be getting the majority of touches each week.

Dion Lewis

Lewis RB1, Gillislee Non-Contact for Day's


In the long line of “surprising” initial depth charts, Dion Lewis is listed as the RB1 on New England’s initial depth chart. This is nothing, unless there is something wrong with Gillislee, and then… “Mike Gillislee's hamstring is the reason why he's been locked onto the conditioning field for the past few days. Also an issue from OTAs.”

Fantasy Goo: There’s probably nothing to this, very few teams are having their starters play in the first preseason game. Gillislee is probably being held out of contact for precautionary reasons. Even if Gilly has the lead role, there will be other hands in the pot, with an ADP in the 4th-5th round (FFC), he’s become too rich for my blood.

Rex Burkhead

New England Patriots

Burkhead Gets Goal Line Work


Bill Belichick has been on record saying that he wants to be less predictable at RB. All 4 RBs are going to get work when healthy this year.

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots RB position is one of the most valuable in fantasy, but with the lack of clarity on workload and specified roles, I'm staying far away from these backs who will cannibalise each other's production throughout the season.

Mike Gillislee

New England Patriots

To Gillislee or Not to Gillislee?


“First goal-line carry of camp in full pads goes to Mike Gillislee. Powers up middle for TD. Top candidate to replace LeGarrette Blount.”

Fantasy Goo: About 12 hours after a Pyro discussion about Gillislee’s draft value we see him get the first goal-line carry in camp. If we see him get even half of the goal-line work that Blount has vacated and 220-250 touches Gillislee should easily return his draft value. Gillislee is currently going of the board as RB22 in MFL10’s, and he’s ranked as RB28 in the Pyro rankings, as Staggs has him projected for closer to 200 carries. If we can guarantee that he is going to get all of the goal-line work he will continue to rise, but we always have to look out for those Belitricks.

Patriots Add Depth at RB


The Buffalo Bills declined to match the offer sheet for Gillislee and he will now become a Patriot on a 2 year deal for $6.4mm.The Patriots vacate a 5th round pick to the Bills.

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots backfield is already loaded with depth, Gillislee adds more as a part time back who is capable of getting a 5+ YPC with limited snaps.

LeSean McCoy

Buffalo Bills

The Real Slim Shady has Stood Up


McCoy has totaled 598 yards with four touchdowns and a two-point conversion over his last five games. He continues that run against the Bills this week.

Fantasy Goo: The Browns have allowed 146 rushing yards per game and 14 touchdowns. Gillislee has been a touchdown vulture, but with the matchup both have stand alone value. Shady is a must start RB1 and Gillislee is flex worthy.

The Bills will continue to try to keep Shady fresh by working in Gillislee and having him as the primary goal line back.

Gillislee is indeed out against the Jags.

Fantasy Goo: Only one other team runs the ball more than the Bills. Not only that, no other team has a higher percentage of their red zone TDs come from rushing. Against Jacksonville, those number should be bolstered as a positive game-script is very likely for the Bills. A do-run-run-run, a-do-run-run

McCoy Not At Practice For Bills On Wednesday


LeSean McCoy did not practice Wednesday due to the aggravated hamstring, leaving his Week 8 status questionable. He is and will be receiving medical treatment for the injury throughout the week.

Fantasy Goo: There is no indication yet as to whether or not the Bills are going to have McCoy play, but as shown in Week 7, McCoy is mainly ineffective if not fully healthy. Owners should prepare alternate plans in case McCoy does not play,or in case he plays at less than full capacity.

Mike Gillislee was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks he should be okay for the Week 8 matchup.

Fantasy Goo: The injury to Gillislee is not considered to be serious at this point, but owners should monitor the situation throughout the week. If fully healthy by Sunday's game against the Patriots, Gillislee could be a solid RB2 should Shady sit out due to the hamstring injury.

McCoy is In: Gillislee Owners None Too Happy


McCoy is active despite early reports this week to the contrary.

Fantasy Goo: There is lots of hesitation now as it relates to Gillislee. On Draft Kings, he is minimum priced, thus I think he is still a great play there as he will reach his 4xfloor. In redrafts, I am indeed keeping him in my line-up for my league of record. I think McCoy could be comparable to Jamaal Charles last week. If you remember, Ware was the man, and Gillislee is just too talented.

Mike Gillislee The Favorite To Backup Shady McCoy In Buffalo


Mike Clay reports that with the suspension and weight problems of Buffalo Bills backup RB Karlos Williams, RB Mike Gilislee might be the favorite to backup starting RB LeSean McCoy. Gillislee was a 5th round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, but was released in September of 2015. Gillislee signed with the Bills in November and played five games rushing for 267 yards and 3 TDs. (Mike Clay on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: LeSean McCoy has a long history of durability issues and going into his 8th year needs to be handcuffed. While Gillislee hasn't done much during his three year career, he only got his first real opportunity late last year with the Bills. If Gillislee is the second string RB, I would advise all LeSean McCoy owners to pick him up.

Burkhead Gets Goal Line Work


Bill Belichick has been on record saying that he wants to be less predictable at RB. All 4 RBs are going to get work when healthy this year.

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots RB position is one of the most valuable in fantasy, but with the lack of clarity on workload and specified roles, I'm staying far away from these backs who will cannibalise each other's production throughout the season.

To Gillislee or Not to Gillislee?


“First goal-line carry of camp in full pads goes to Mike Gillislee. Powers up middle for TD. Top candidate to replace LeGarrette Blount.”

Fantasy Goo: About 12 hours after a Pyro discussion about Gillislee’s draft value we see him get the first goal-line carry in camp. If we see him get even half of the goal-line work that Blount has vacated and 220-250 touches Gillislee should easily return his draft value. Gillislee is currently going of the board as RB22 in MFL10’s, and he’s ranked as RB28 in the Pyro rankings, as Staggs has him projected for closer to 200 carries. If we can guarantee that he is going to get all of the goal-line work he will continue to rise, but we always have to look out for those Belitricks.

McCoy Not At Practice For Bills On Wednesday


LeSean McCoy did not practice Wednesday due to the aggravated hamstring, leaving his Week 8 status questionable. He is and will be receiving medical treatment for the injury throughout the week.

Fantasy Goo: There is no indication yet as to whether or not the Bills are going to have McCoy play, but as shown in Week 7, McCoy is mainly ineffective if not fully healthy. Owners should prepare alternate plans in case McCoy does not play,or in case he plays at less than full capacity.

Mike Gillislee was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks he should be okay for the Week 8 matchup.

Fantasy Goo: The injury to Gillislee is not considered to be serious at this point, but owners should monitor the situation throughout the week. If fully healthy by Sunday's game against the Patriots, Gillislee could be a solid RB2 should Shady sit out due to the hamstring injury.

Mike Gillislee The Favorite To Backup Shady McCoy In Buffalo


Mike Clay reports that with the suspension and weight problems of Buffalo Bills backup RB Karlos Williams, RB Mike Gilislee might be the favorite to backup starting RB LeSean McCoy. Gillislee was a 5th round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, but was released in September of 2015. Gillislee signed with the Bills in November and played five games rushing for 267 yards and 3 TDs. (Mike Clay on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: LeSean McCoy has a long history of durability issues and going into his 8th year needs to be handcuffed. While Gillislee hasn't done much during his three year career, he only got his first real opportunity late last year with the Bills. If Gillislee is the second string RB, I would advise all LeSean McCoy owners to pick him up.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Sneaky Play In Burkhead


While we are all scrambling to try to figure out the Patriots backfield situation, Burkhead could be a sneaky high upside play. Burkhead and Gillislee will be tied in together as the early down backs until we have clarity.

Fantasy Goo: My advice is to hold off all Patriots RBs until we have some clarity on how they are used respectively. Burkhead though is the only player who I project to see more touches if any other RB is inactive - regardless of which one it is.

Gilislee's workload is biggest question in Week 1


The Patriots have a loaded backfield, so while there was a lot of preseason hype about getting Mike Gilislee, it remains to be seen exactly how Belichick will utilize him. The odds are that he does not have more than 15 carries, and we need to see him on the field in the redzone to feel good about starting him in Week 1.

Gillislee Ground to Make Up


Gillislee missed time during OTA’s and was sidelined for two weeks during camp with a hamstring injury. "I think he still has quite a ways to go," Belichick said. "We gained some ground last week...We'll continue to keep pushing through it."

Fantasy Goo: Gillislee was being drafted in the 5th round at one point, but he’s starting to slide down to the seventh now. The only back in NE that we can expect any kind of consistency from is White. Burkhead, Gillislee, and Lewis should only be drafted in best-ball drafts because we will probably not be given any indication which one will be getting the majority of touches each week.

While Gillislee hasn't done much during his three year career, he only got his first real opportunity late last year with the Bills. If Gillislee is the second string RB, I would advise all LeSean McCoy owners to pick him up.

Mike Gillislee The Favorite To Backup Shady McCoy In Buffalo


Mike Clay reports that with the suspension and weight problems of Buffalo Bills backup RB Karlos Williams, RB Mike Gilislee might be the favorite to backup starting RB LeSean McCoy. Gillislee was a 5th round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, but was released in September of 2015. Gillislee signed with the Bills in November and played five games rushing for 267 yards and 3 TDs. (Mike Clay on Twitter)

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Sneaky Play In Burkhead


While we are all scrambling to try to figure out the Patriots backfield situation, Burkhead could be a sneaky high upside play. Burkhead and Gillislee will be tied in together as the early down backs until we have clarity.

Fantasy Goo: My advice is to hold off all Patriots RBs until we have some clarity on how they are used respectively. Burkhead though is the only player who I project to see more touches if any other RB is inactive - regardless of which one it is.

Gilislee's workload is biggest question in Week 1


The Patriots have a loaded backfield, so while there was a lot of preseason hype about getting Mike Gilislee, it remains to be seen exactly how Belichick will utilize him. The odds are that he does not have more than 15 carries, and we need to see him on the field in the redzone to feel good about starting him in Week 1.

Gillislee Ground to Make Up


Gillislee missed time during OTA’s and was sidelined for two weeks during camp with a hamstring injury. "I think he still has quite a ways to go," Belichick said. "We gained some ground last week...We'll continue to keep pushing through it."

Fantasy Goo: Gillislee was being drafted in the 5th round at one point, but he’s starting to slide down to the seventh now. The only back in NE that we can expect any kind of consistency from is White. Burkhead, Gillislee, and Lewis should only be drafted in best-ball drafts because we will probably not be given any indication which one will be getting the majority of touches each week.

This is nothing, unless there is something wrong with Gillislee, and then… “Mike Gillislee's hamstring is the reason why he's been locked onto the conditioning field for the past few days. Also an issue from OTAs.”

Fantasy Goo: There’s probably nothing to this, very few teams are having their starters play in the first preseason game. Gillislee is probably being held out of contact for precautionary reasons. Even if Gilly has the lead role, there will be other hands in the pot, with an ADP in the 4th-5th round (FFC), he’s become too rich for my blood.

To Gillislee or Not to Gillislee?


“First goal-line carry of camp in full pads goes to Mike Gillislee. Powers up middle for TD. Top candidate to replace LeGarrette Blount.”

Fantasy Goo: About 12 hours after a Pyro discussion about Gillislee’s draft value we see him get the first goal-line carry in camp. If we see him get even half of the goal-line work that Blount has vacated and 220-250 touches Gillislee should easily return his draft value. Gillislee is currently going of the board as RB22 in MFL10’s, and he’s ranked as RB28 in the Pyro rankings, as Staggs has him projected for closer to 200 carries. If we can guarantee that he is going to get all of the goal-line work he will continue to rise, but we always have to look out for those Belitricks.

McCoy Not At Practice For Bills On Wednesday


LeSean McCoy did not practice Wednesday due to the aggravated hamstring, leaving his Week 8 status questionable. He is and will be receiving medical treatment for the injury throughout the week.

Fantasy Goo: There is no indication yet as to whether or not the Bills are going to have McCoy play, but as shown in Week 7, McCoy is mainly ineffective if not fully healthy. Owners should prepare alternate plans in case McCoy does not play,or in case he plays at less than full capacity.

Mike Gillislee was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks he should be okay for the Week 8 matchup.

Fantasy Goo: The injury to Gillislee is not considered to be serious at this point, but owners should monitor the situation throughout the week. If fully healthy by Sunday's game against the Patriots, Gillislee could be a solid RB2 should Shady sit out due to the hamstring injury.

McCoy Not At Practice For Bills On Wednesday


LeSean McCoy did not practice Wednesday due to the aggravated hamstring, leaving his Week 8 status questionable. He is and will be receiving medical treatment for the injury throughout the week.

Fantasy Goo: There is no indication yet as to whether or not the Bills are going to have McCoy play, but as shown in Week 7, McCoy is mainly ineffective if not fully healthy. Owners should prepare alternate plans in case McCoy does not play,or in case he plays at less than full capacity.

Mike Gillislee was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks he should be okay for the Week 8 matchup.

Fantasy Goo: The injury to Gillislee is not considered to be serious at this point, but owners should monitor the situation throughout the week. If fully healthy by Sunday's game against the Patriots, Gillislee could be a solid RB2 should Shady sit out due to the hamstring injury.

Mike Gillislee The Favorite To Backup Shady McCoy In Buffalo


Mike Clay reports that with the suspension and weight problems of Buffalo Bills backup RB Karlos Williams, RB Mike Gilislee might be the favorite to backup starting RB LeSean McCoy. Gillislee was a 5th round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, but was released in September of 2015. Gillislee signed with the Bills in November and played five games rushing for 267 yards and 3 TDs. (Mike Clay on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: LeSean McCoy has a long history of durability issues and going into his 8th year needs to be handcuffed. While Gillislee hasn't done much during his three year career, he only got his first real opportunity late last year with the Bills. If Gillislee is the second string RB, I would advise all LeSean McCoy owners to pick him up.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

While we are all scrambling to try to figure out the Patriots backfield situation, Burkhead could be a sneaky high upside play. Burkhead and Gillislee will be tied in together as the early down backs until we have clarity.

The Patriots have a loaded backfield, so while there was a lot of preseason hype about getting Mike Gilislee, it remains to be seen exactly how Belichick will utilize him. The odds are that he does not have more than 15 carries, and we need to see him on the field in the redzone to feel good about starting him in Week 1.

Gillislee Ground to Make Up


Gillislee missed time during OTA’s and was sidelined for two weeks during camp with a hamstring injury. "I think he still has quite a ways to go," Belichick said. "We gained some ground last week...We'll continue to keep pushing through it."

Fantasy Goo: Gillislee was being drafted in the 5th round at one point, but he’s starting to slide down to the seventh now. The only back in NE that we can expect any kind of consistency from is White. Burkhead, Gillislee, and Lewis should only be drafted in best-ball drafts because we will probably not be given any indication which one will be getting the majority of touches each week.

This is nothing, unless there is something wrong with Gillislee, and then… “Mike Gillislee's hamstring is the reason why he's been locked onto the conditioning field for the past few days. Also an issue from OTAs.”

Fantasy Goo: There’s probably nothing to this, very few teams are having their starters play in the first preseason game. Gillislee is probably being held out of contact for precautionary reasons. Even if Gilly has the lead role, there will be other hands in the pot, with an ADP in the 4th-5th round (FFC), he’s become too rich for my blood.

To Gillislee or Not to Gillislee?


“First goal-line carry of camp in full pads goes to Mike Gillislee. Powers up middle for TD. Top candidate to replace LeGarrette Blount.”

Fantasy Goo: About 12 hours after a Pyro discussion about Gillislee’s draft value we see him get the first goal-line carry in camp. If we see him get even half of the goal-line work that Blount has vacated and 220-250 touches Gillislee should easily return his draft value. Gillislee is currently going of the board as RB22 in MFL10’s, and he’s ranked as RB28 in the Pyro rankings, as Staggs has him projected for closer to 200 carries. If we can guarantee that he is going to get all of the goal-line work he will continue to rise, but we always have to look out for those Belitricks.

Burkhead, Gillislee, and Lewis should only be drafted in best-ball drafts because we will probably not be given any indication which one will be getting the majority of touches each week.

Lewis RB1, Gillislee Non-Contact for Day's


In the long line of “surprising” initial depth charts, Dion Lewis is listed as the RB1 on New England’s initial depth chart. This is nothing, unless there is something wrong with Gillislee, and then… “Mike Gillislee's hamstring is the reason why he's been locked onto the conditioning field for the past few days. Also an issue from OTAs.”

Fantasy Goo: There’s probably nothing to this, very few teams are having their starters play in the first preseason game. Gillislee is probably being held out of contact for precautionary reasons. Even if Gilly has the lead role, there will be other hands in the pot, with an ADP in the 4th-5th round (FFC), he’s become too rich for my blood.

To Gillislee or Not to Gillislee?


“First goal-line carry of camp in full pads goes to Mike Gillislee. Powers up middle for TD. Top candidate to replace LeGarrette Blount.”

Fantasy Goo: About 12 hours after a Pyro discussion about Gillislee’s draft value we see him get the first goal-line carry in camp. If we see him get even half of the goal-line work that Blount has vacated and 220-250 touches Gillislee should easily return his draft value. Gillislee is currently going of the board as RB22 in MFL10’s, and he’s ranked as RB28 in the Pyro rankings, as Staggs has him projected for closer to 200 carries. If we can guarantee that he is going to get all of the goal-line work he will continue to rise, but we always have to look out for those Belitricks.

Fantasy Goo: There is no indication yet as to whether or not the Bills are going to have McCoy play, but as shown in Week 7, McCoy is mainly ineffective if not fully healthy. Owners should prepare alternate plans in case McCoy does not play,or in case he plays at less than full capacity.

Mike Gillislee was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks he should be okay for the Week 8 matchup.

Fantasy Goo: The injury to Gillislee is not considered to be serious at this point, but owners should monitor the situation throughout the week. If fully healthy by Sunday's game against the Patriots, Gillislee could be a solid RB2 should Shady sit out due to the hamstring injury.

Mike Gillislee The Favorite To Backup Shady McCoy In Buffalo


Mike Clay reports that with the suspension and weight problems of Buffalo Bills backup RB Karlos Williams, RB Mike Gilislee might be the favorite to backup starting RB LeSean McCoy. Gillislee was a 5th round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, but was released in September of 2015. Gillislee signed with the Bills in November and played five games rushing for 267 yards and 3 TDs. (Mike Clay on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: LeSean McCoy has a long history of durability issues and going into his 8th year needs to be handcuffed. While Gillislee hasn't done much during his three year career, he only got his first real opportunity late last year with the Bills. If Gillislee is the second string RB, I would advise all LeSean McCoy owners to pick him up.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Sneaky Play In Burkhead


While we are all scrambling to try to figure out the Patriots backfield situation, Burkhead could be a sneaky high upside play. Burkhead and Gillislee will be tied in together as the early down backs until we have clarity.

Fantasy Goo: My advice is to hold off all Patriots RBs until we have some clarity on how they are used respectively. Burkhead though is the only player who I project to see more touches if any other RB is inactive - regardless of which one it is.

Gilislee's workload is biggest question in Week 1


The Patriots have a loaded backfield, so while there was a lot of preseason hype about getting Mike Gilislee, it remains to be seen exactly how Belichick will utilize him. The odds are that he does not have more than 15 carries, and we need to see him on the field in the redzone to feel good about starting him in Week 1.

Gillislee Ground to Make Up


Gillislee missed time during OTA’s and was sidelined for two weeks during camp with a hamstring injury. "I think he still has quite a ways to go," Belichick said. "We gained some ground last week...We'll continue to keep pushing through it."

Fantasy Goo: Gillislee was being drafted in the 5th round at one point, but he’s starting to slide down to the seventh now. The only back in NE that we can expect any kind of consistency from is White. Burkhead, Gillislee, and Lewis should only be drafted in best-ball drafts because we will probably not be given any indication which one will be getting the majority of touches each week.

LeSean McCoy Week 7 Status is Shady After Getting Injured In Practice


LeSean McCoy left practice early Wednesday with an apparent hamstring injury and did not return.

Fantasy Goo: McCoy did not finish practice due to "tightness" in his hamstring. The Bills are currently awaiting results from a medical evaluation regarding the severity. Owners should keep an eye out for future updates, and if you haven't already, you should look to add Mike Gillislee in the case that McCoy misses time.

Mike Gillislee The Favorite To Backup Shady McCoy In Buffalo


Mike Clay reports that with the suspension and weight problems of Buffalo Bills backup RB Karlos Williams, RB Mike Gilislee might be the favorite to backup starting RB LeSean McCoy. Gillislee was a 5th round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, but was released in September of 2015. Gillislee signed with the Bills in November and played five games rushing for 267 yards and 3 TDs. (Mike Clay on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: LeSean McCoy has a long history of durability issues and going into his 8th year needs to be handcuffed. While Gillislee hasn't done much during his three year career, he only got his first real opportunity late last year with the Bills. If Gillislee is the second string RB, I would advise all LeSean McCoy owners to pick him up.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Sneaky Play In Burkhead


While we are all scrambling to try to figure out the Patriots backfield situation, Burkhead could be a sneaky high upside play. Burkhead and Gillislee will be tied in together as the early down backs until we have clarity.

Fantasy Goo: My advice is to hold off all Patriots RBs until we have some clarity on how they are used respectively. Burkhead though is the only player who I project to see more touches if any other RB is inactive - regardless of which one it is.

Gilislee's workload is biggest question in Week 1


The Patriots have a loaded backfield, so while there was a lot of preseason hype about getting Mike Gilislee, it remains to be seen exactly how Belichick will utilize him. The odds are that he does not have more than 15 carries, and we need to see him on the field in the redzone to feel good about starting him in Week 1.

Gillislee Ground to Make Up


Gillislee missed time during OTA’s and was sidelined for two weeks during camp with a hamstring injury. "I think he still has quite a ways to go," Belichick said. "We gained some ground last week...We'll continue to keep pushing through it."

Fantasy Goo: Gillislee was being drafted in the 5th round at one point, but he’s starting to slide down to the seventh now. The only back in NE that we can expect any kind of consistency from is White. Burkhead, Gillislee, and Lewis should only be drafted in best-ball drafts because we will probably not be given any indication which one will be getting the majority of touches each week.

Also an issue from OTAs.”

Fantasy Goo: There’s probably nothing to this, very few teams are having their starters play in the first preseason game. Gillislee is probably being held out of contact for precautionary reasons. Even if Gilly has the lead role, there will be other hands in the pot, with an ADP in the 4th-5th round (FFC), he’s become too rich for my blood.

To Gillislee or Not to Gillislee?


“First goal-line carry of camp in full pads goes to Mike Gillislee. Powers up middle for TD. Top candidate to replace LeGarrette Blount.”

Fantasy Goo: About 12 hours after a Pyro discussion about Gillislee’s draft value we see him get the first goal-line carry in camp. If we see him get even half of the goal-line work that Blount has vacated and 220-250 touches Gillislee should easily return his draft value. Gillislee is currently going of the board as RB22 in MFL10’s, and he’s ranked as RB28 in the Pyro rankings, as Staggs has him projected for closer to 200 carries. If we can guarantee that he is going to get all of the goal-line work he will continue to rise, but we always have to look out for those Belitricks.

McCoy Not At Practice For Bills On Wednesday


LeSean McCoy did not practice Wednesday due to the aggravated hamstring, leaving his Week 8 status questionable. He is and will be receiving medical treatment for the injury throughout the week.

Fantasy Goo: There is no indication yet as to whether or not the Bills are going to have McCoy play, but as shown in Week 7, McCoy is mainly ineffective if not fully healthy. Owners should prepare alternate plans in case McCoy does not play,or in case he plays at less than full capacity.

Mike Gillislee was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks he should be okay for the Week 8 matchup.

Fantasy Goo: The injury to Gillislee is not considered to be serious at this point, but owners should monitor the situation throughout the week. If fully healthy by Sunday's game against the Patriots, Gillislee could be a solid RB2 should Shady sit out due to the hamstring injury.

In redrafts, I am indeed keeping him in my line-up for my league of record. I think McCoy could be comparable to Jamaal Charles last week.

Fantasy Goo: The Browns have allowed 146 rushing yards per game and 14 touchdowns. Gillislee has been a touchdown vulture, but with the matchup both have stand alone value. Shady is a must start RB1 and Gillislee is flex worthy.

OC Says Gillislee Red Zone Back


The Bills will continue to try to keep Shady fresh by working in Gillislee and having him as the primary goal line back.

Fantasy Goo: McCoy is still a must start when healthy, but expect the TD numbers to drop. Gillislee has earned some stand alone value and could be used as an RB2.

Gillislee is indeed out against the Jags.

Fantasy Goo: Only one other team runs the ball more than the Bills. Not only that, no other team has a higher percentage of their red zone TDs come from rushing. Against Jacksonville, those number should be bolstered as a positive game-script is very likely for the Bills. A do-run-run-run, a-do-run-run

McCoy Not At Practice For Bills On Wednesday


LeSean McCoy did not practice Wednesday due to the aggravated hamstring, leaving his Week 8 status questionable. He is and will be receiving medical treatment for the injury throughout the week.

Fantasy Goo: There is no indication yet as to whether or not the Bills are going to have McCoy play, but as shown in Week 7, McCoy is mainly ineffective if not fully healthy. Owners should prepare alternate plans in case McCoy does not play,or in case he plays at less than full capacity.

Mike Gillislee was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks he should be okay for the Week 8 matchup.

Fantasy Goo: The injury to Gillislee is not considered to be serious at this point, but owners should monitor the situation throughout the week. If fully healthy by Sunday's game against the Patriots, Gillislee could be a solid RB2 should Shady sit out due to the hamstring injury.

Mike Gillislee The Favorite To Backup Shady McCoy In Buffalo


Mike Clay reports that with the suspension and weight problems of Buffalo Bills backup RB Karlos Williams, RB Mike Gilislee might be the favorite to backup starting RB LeSean McCoy. Gillislee was a 5th round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, but was released in September of 2015. Gillislee signed with the Bills in November and played five games rushing for 267 yards and 3 TDs. (Mike Clay on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: LeSean McCoy has a long history of durability issues and going into his 8th year needs to be handcuffed. While Gillislee hasn't done much during his three year career, he only got his first real opportunity late last year with the Bills. If Gillislee is the second string RB, I would advise all LeSean McCoy owners to pick him up.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Sneaky Play In Burkhead


While we are all scrambling to try to figure out the Patriots backfield situation, Burkhead could be a sneaky high upside play. Burkhead and Gillislee will be tied in together as the early down backs until we have clarity.

Fantasy Goo: My advice is to hold off all Patriots RBs until we have some clarity on how they are used respectively. Burkhead though is the only player who I project to see more touches if any other RB is inactive - regardless of which one it is.

Gilislee's workload is biggest question in Week 1


The Patriots have a loaded backfield, so while there was a lot of preseason hype about getting Mike Gilislee, it remains to be seen exactly how Belichick will utilize him. The odds are that he does not have more than 15 carries, and we need to see him on the field in the redzone to feel good about starting him in Week 1.

Gillislee Ground to Make Up


Gillislee missed time during OTA’s and was sidelined for two weeks during camp with a hamstring injury. "I think he still has quite a ways to go," Belichick said. "We gained some ground last week...We'll continue to keep pushing through it."

Fantasy Goo: Gillislee was being drafted in the 5th round at one point, but he’s starting to slide down to the seventh now. The only back in NE that we can expect any kind of consistency from is White. Burkhead, Gillislee, and Lewis should only be drafted in best-ball drafts because we will probably not be given any indication which one will be getting the majority of touches each week.

Lewis RB1, Gillislee Non-Contact for Day's


In the long line of “surprising” initial depth charts, Dion Lewis is listed as the RB1 on New England’s initial depth chart. This is nothing, unless there is something wrong with Gillislee, and then… “Mike Gillislee's hamstring is the reason why he's been locked onto the conditioning field for the past few days. Also an issue from OTAs.”

Fantasy Goo: There’s probably nothing to this, very few teams are having their starters play in the first preseason game. Gillislee is probably being held out of contact for precautionary reasons. Even if Gilly has the lead role, there will be other hands in the pot, with an ADP in the 4th-5th round (FFC), he’s become too rich for my blood.

To Gillislee or Not to Gillislee?


“First goal-line carry of camp in full pads goes to Mike Gillislee. Powers up middle for TD. Top candidate to replace LeGarrette Blount.”

Fantasy Goo: About 12 hours after a Pyro discussion about Gillislee’s draft value we see him get the first goal-line carry in camp. If we see him get even half of the goal-line work that Blount has vacated and 220-250 touches Gillislee should easily return his draft value. Gillislee is currently going of the board as RB22 in MFL10’s, and he’s ranked as RB28 in the Pyro rankings, as Staggs has him projected for closer to 200 carries. If we can guarantee that he is going to get all of the goal-line work he will continue to rise, but we always have to look out for those Belitricks.

While we are all scrambling to try to figure out the Patriots backfield situation, Burkhead could be a sneaky high upside play. Burkhead and Gillislee will be tied in together as the early down backs until we have clarity.

Fantasy Goo: My advice is to hold off all Patriots RBs until we have some clarity on how they are used respectively. Burkhead though is the only player who I project to see more touches if any other RB is inactive - regardless of which one it is.

Gilislee's workload is biggest question in Week 1


The Patriots have a loaded backfield, so while there was a lot of preseason hype about getting Mike Gilislee, it remains to be seen exactly how Belichick will utilize him. The odds are that he does not have more than 15 carries, and we need to see him on the field in the redzone to feel good about starting him in Week 1.

Gillislee Ground to Make Up


Gillislee missed time during OTA’s and was sidelined for two weeks during camp with a hamstring injury. "I think he still has quite a ways to go," Belichick said. "We gained some ground last week...We'll continue to keep pushing through it."

Fantasy Goo: Gillislee was being drafted in the 5th round at one point, but he’s starting to slide down to the seventh now. The only back in NE that we can expect any kind of consistency from is White. Burkhead, Gillislee, and Lewis should only be drafted in best-ball drafts because we will probably not be given any indication which one will be getting the majority of touches each week.

Lewis RB1, Gillislee Non-Contact for Day's


In the long line of “surprising” initial depth charts, Dion Lewis is listed as the RB1 on New England’s initial depth chart. This is nothing, unless there is something wrong with Gillislee, and then… “Mike Gillislee's hamstring is the reason why he's been locked onto the conditioning field for the past few days. Also an issue from OTAs.”

Fantasy Goo: There’s probably nothing to this, very few teams are having their starters play in the first preseason game. Gillislee is probably being held out of contact for precautionary reasons. Even if Gilly has the lead role, there will be other hands in the pot, with an ADP in the 4th-5th round (FFC), he’s become too rich for my blood.

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots RB position is one of the most valuable in fantasy, but with the lack of clarity on workload and specified roles, I'm staying far away from these backs who will cannibalise each other's production throughout the season.

To Gillislee or Not to Gillislee?


“First goal-line carry of camp in full pads goes to Mike Gillislee. Powers up middle for TD. Top candidate to replace LeGarrette Blount.”

Fantasy Goo: About 12 hours after a Pyro discussion about Gillislee’s draft value we see him get the first goal-line carry in camp. If we see him get even half of the goal-line work that Blount has vacated and 220-250 touches Gillislee should easily return his draft value. Gillislee is currently going of the board as RB22 in MFL10’s, and he’s ranked as RB28 in the Pyro rankings, as Staggs has him projected for closer to 200 carries. If we can guarantee that he is going to get all of the goal-line work he will continue to rise, but we always have to look out for those Belitricks.

McCoy Not At Practice For Bills On Wednesday


LeSean McCoy did not practice Wednesday due to the aggravated hamstring, leaving his Week 8 status questionable. He is and will be receiving medical treatment for the injury throughout the week.

Fantasy Goo: There is no indication yet as to whether or not the Bills are going to have McCoy play, but as shown in Week 7, McCoy is mainly ineffective if not fully healthy. Owners should prepare alternate plans in case McCoy does not play,or in case he plays at less than full capacity.

Mike Gillislee was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks he should be okay for the Week 8 matchup.

Fantasy Goo: The injury to Gillislee is not considered to be serious at this point, but owners should monitor the situation throughout the week. If fully healthy by Sunday's game against the Patriots, Gillislee could be a solid RB2 should Shady sit out due to the hamstring injury.

In redrafts, I am indeed keeping him in my line-up for my league of record. I think McCoy could be comparable to Jamaal Charles last week. If you remember, Ware was the man, and Gillislee is just too talented.

Mike Gillislee The Favorite To Backup Shady McCoy In Buffalo


Mike Clay reports that with the suspension and weight problems of Buffalo Bills backup RB Karlos Williams, RB Mike Gilislee might be the favorite to backup starting RB LeSean McCoy. Gillislee was a 5th round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, but was released in September of 2015. Gillislee signed with the Bills in November and played five games rushing for 267 yards and 3 TDs. (Mike Clay on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: LeSean McCoy has a long history of durability issues and going into his 8th year needs to be handcuffed. While Gillislee hasn't done much during his three year career, he only got his first real opportunity late last year with the Bills. If Gillislee is the second string RB, I would advise all LeSean McCoy owners to pick him up.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

McCoy is In: Gillislee Owners None Too Happy


McCoy is active despite early reports this week to the contrary.

Fantasy Goo: There is lots of hesitation now as it relates to Gillislee. On Draft Kings, he is minimum priced, thus I think he is still a great play there as he will reach his 4xfloor. In redrafts, I am indeed keeping him in my line-up for my league of record. I think McCoy could be comparable to Jamaal Charles last week. If you remember, Ware was the man, and Gillislee is just too talented.

Mike Gillislee The Favorite To Backup Shady McCoy In Buffalo


Mike Clay reports that with the suspension and weight problems of Buffalo Bills backup RB Karlos Williams, RB Mike Gilislee might be the favorite to backup starting RB LeSean McCoy. Gillislee was a 5th round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, but was released in September of 2015. Gillislee signed with the Bills in November and played five games rushing for 267 yards and 3 TDs. (Mike Clay on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: LeSean McCoy has a long history of durability issues and going into his 8th year needs to be handcuffed. While Gillislee hasn't done much during his three year career, he only got his first real opportunity late last year with the Bills. If Gillislee is the second string RB, I would advise all LeSean McCoy owners to pick him up.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Sneaky Play In Burkhead


While we are all scrambling to try to figure out the Patriots backfield situation, Burkhead could be a sneaky high upside play. Burkhead and Gillislee will be tied in together as the early down backs until we have clarity.

Fantasy Goo: My advice is to hold off all Patriots RBs until we have some clarity on how they are used respectively. Burkhead though is the only player who I project to see more touches if any other RB is inactive - regardless of which one it is.

Gilislee's workload is biggest question in Week 1


The Patriots have a loaded backfield, so while there was a lot of preseason hype about getting Mike Gilislee, it remains to be seen exactly how Belichick will utilize him. The odds are that he does not have more than 15 carries, and we need to see him on the field in the redzone to feel good about starting him in Week 1.

Gillislee Ground to Make Up


Gillislee missed time during OTA’s and was sidelined for two weeks during camp with a hamstring injury. "I think he still has quite a ways to go," Belichick said. "We gained some ground last week...We'll continue to keep pushing through it."

Fantasy Goo: Gillislee was being drafted in the 5th round at one point, but he’s starting to slide down to the seventh now. The only back in NE that we can expect any kind of consistency from is White. Burkhead, Gillislee, and Lewis should only be drafted in best-ball drafts because we will probably not be given any indication which one will be getting the majority of touches each week.

“First goal-line carry of camp in full pads goes to Mike Gillislee. Powers up middle for TD. Top candidate to replace LeGarrette Blount.”

Fantasy Goo: About 12 hours after a Pyro discussion about Gillislee’s draft value we see him get the first goal-line carry in camp. If we see him get even half of the goal-line work that Blount has vacated and 220-250 touches Gillislee should easily return his draft value. Gillislee is currently going of the board as RB22 in MFL10’s, and he’s ranked as RB28 in the Pyro rankings, as Staggs has him projected for closer to 200 carries. If we can guarantee that he is going to get all of the goal-line work he will continue to rise, but we always have to look out for those Belitricks.

Mike Gillislee was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks he should be okay for the Week 8 matchup.

If we can guarantee that he is going to get all of the goal-line work he will continue to rise, but we always have to look out for those Belitricks.

Patriots Add Depth at RB


The Buffalo Bills declined to match the offer sheet for Gillislee and he will now become a Patriot on a 2 year deal for $6.4mm.The Patriots vacate a 5th round pick to the Bills.

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots backfield is already loaded with depth, Gillislee adds more as a part time back who is capable of getting a 5+ YPC with limited snaps.

Fantasy Goo: The Browns have allowed 146 rushing yards per game and 14 touchdowns. Gillislee has been a touchdown vulture, but with the matchup both have stand alone value. Shady is a must start RB1 and Gillislee is flex worthy.

McCoy Not At Practice For Bills On Wednesday


LeSean McCoy did not practice Wednesday due to the aggravated hamstring, leaving his Week 8 status questionable. He is and will be receiving medical treatment for the injury throughout the week.

Fantasy Goo: There is no indication yet as to whether or not the Bills are going to have McCoy play, but as shown in Week 7, McCoy is mainly ineffective if not fully healthy. Owners should prepare alternate plans in case McCoy does not play,or in case he plays at less than full capacity.

Mike Gillislee was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks he should be okay for the Week 8 matchup.

Fantasy Goo: The injury to Gillislee is not considered to be serious at this point, but owners should monitor the situation throughout the week. If fully healthy by Sunday's game against the Patriots, Gillislee could be a solid RB2 should Shady sit out due to the hamstring injury.

Mike Gillislee The Favorite To Backup Shady McCoy In Buffalo


Mike Clay reports that with the suspension and weight problems of Buffalo Bills backup RB Karlos Williams, RB Mike Gilislee might be the favorite to backup starting RB LeSean McCoy. Gillislee was a 5th round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, but was released in September of 2015. Gillislee signed with the Bills in November and played five games rushing for 267 yards and 3 TDs. (Mike Clay on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: LeSean McCoy has a long history of durability issues and going into his 8th year needs to be handcuffed. While Gillislee hasn't done much during his three year career, he only got his first real opportunity late last year with the Bills. If Gillislee is the second string RB, I would advise all LeSean McCoy owners to pick him up.

Mike G - 2nd in NFL in Red Zone Rushing Attempts


Not only do the Patriots let their RB tote the rock when they get in close, they should find themselves in that position more often than not in Week 6. New England has the highest implied team total of the week. Plus, the game script should heavily favor the run, as they opened as 9.5 road favorites against the Jets. There are only 2 teams in standard scoring allowing more fantasy goo to the position than the J-E-T-S Jets, Jets, Jets.

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Sneaky Play In Burkhead


While we are all scrambling to try to figure out the Patriots backfield situation, Burkhead could be a sneaky high upside play. Burkhead and Gillislee will be tied in together as the early down backs until we have clarity.

Fantasy Goo: My advice is to hold off all Patriots RBs until we have some clarity on how they are used respectively. Burkhead though is the only player who I project to see more touches if any other RB is inactive - regardless of which one it is.

Gilislee's workload is biggest question in Week 1


The Patriots have a loaded backfield, so while there was a lot of preseason hype about getting Mike Gilislee, it remains to be seen exactly how Belichick will utilize him. The odds are that he does not have more than 15 carries, and we need to see him on the field in the redzone to feel good about starting him in Week 1.

Gillislee Ground to Make Up


Gillislee missed time during OTA’s and was sidelined for two weeks during camp with a hamstring injury. "I think he still has quite a ways to go," Belichick said. "We gained some ground last week...We'll continue to keep pushing through it."

Fantasy Goo: Gillislee was being drafted in the 5th round at one point, but he’s starting to slide down to the seventh now. The only back in NE that we can expect any kind of consistency from is White. Burkhead, Gillislee, and Lewis should only be drafted in best-ball drafts because we will probably not be given any indication which one will be getting the majority of touches each week.

This is nothing, unless there is something wrong with Gillislee, and then… “Mike Gillislee's hamstring is the reason why he's been locked onto the conditioning field for the past few days. Also an issue from OTAs.”

Fantasy Goo: There’s probably nothing to this, very few teams are having their starters play in the first preseason game. Gillislee is probably being held out of contact for precautionary reasons. Even if Gilly has the lead role, there will be other hands in the pot, with an ADP in the 4th-5th round (FFC), he’s become too rich for my blood.

Patriots RB's boom or bust on TNF


Mike Gillislee is the clear goal to go and short yardage back, but has only averaged 48.5 rush yards per game. The Buccaneers Defense is 3rd best in the NFL allowing only 78.7 yards a game and 2.9 yards per rush. Coming into this game the Patriots and Bucs are 32nd and 31st in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game. In a matchup that is expected to have a higher total score than a Kobayashi hot dog eating contest it’s unclear if the running game will be much of a factor in that scoring. If the Patriots offense can give Gillislee opportunities within the 10 yard line he could post numbers close to his week 1 totals, if they don’t fantasy owners could be launching their evening crab cakes at the Television.

Rex Burkhead

New England Patriots

Sneaky Play In Burkhead


While we are all scrambling to try to figure out the Patriots backfield situation, Burkhead could be a sneaky high upside play. Burkhead and Gillislee will be tied in together as the early down backs until we have clarity.

Fantasy Goo: My advice is to hold off all Patriots RBs until we have some clarity on how they are used respectively. Burkhead though is the only player who I project to see more touches if any other RB is inactive - regardless of which one it is.

Gilislee's workload is biggest question in Week 1


The Patriots have a loaded backfield, so while there was a lot of preseason hype about getting Mike Gilislee, it remains to be seen exactly how Belichick will utilize him. The odds are that he does not have more than 15 carries, and we need to see him on the field in the redzone to feel good about starting him in Week 1.

Gillislee Ground to Make Up


Gillislee missed time during OTA’s and was sidelined for two weeks during camp with a hamstring injury. "I think he still has quite a ways to go," Belichick said. "We gained some ground last week...We'll continue to keep pushing through it."

Fantasy Goo: Gillislee was being drafted in the 5th round at one point, but he’s starting to slide down to the seventh now. The only back in NE that we can expect any kind of consistency from is White. Burkhead, Gillislee, and Lewis should only be drafted in best-ball drafts because we will probably not be given any indication which one will be getting the majority of touches each week.

Dion Lewis

New England Patriots

Lewis RB1, Gillislee Non-Contact for Day's


In the long line of “surprising” initial depth charts, Dion Lewis is listed as the RB1 on New England’s initial depth chart. This is nothing, unless there is something wrong with Gillislee, and then… “Mike Gillislee's hamstring is the reason why he's been locked onto the conditioning field for the past few days. Also an issue from OTAs.”

Fantasy Goo: There’s probably nothing to this, very few teams are having their starters play in the first preseason game. Gillislee is probably being held out of contact for precautionary reasons. Even if Gilly has the lead role, there will be other hands in the pot, with an ADP in the 4th-5th round (FFC), he’s become too rich for my blood.

Burkhead Gets Goal Line Work


Bill Belichick has been on record saying that he wants to be less predictable at RB. All 4 RBs are going to get work when healthy this year.

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots RB position is one of the most valuable in fantasy, but with the lack of clarity on workload and specified roles, I'm staying far away from these backs who will cannibalise each other's production throughout the season.

New England Patriots

To Gillislee or Not to Gillislee?


“First goal-line carry of camp in full pads goes to Mike Gillislee. Powers up middle for TD. Top candidate to replace LeGarrette Blount.”

Fantasy Goo: About 12 hours after a Pyro discussion about Gillislee’s draft value we see him get the first goal-line carry in camp. If we see him get even half of the goal-line work that Blount has vacated and 220-250 touches Gillislee should easily return his draft value. Gillislee is currently going of the board as RB22 in MFL10’s, and he’s ranked as RB28 in the Pyro rankings, as Staggs has him projected for closer to 200 carries. If we can guarantee that he is going to get all of the goal-line work he will continue to rise, but we always have to look out for those Belitricks.

Patriots Add Depth at RB


The Buffalo Bills declined to match the offer sheet for Gillislee and he will now become a Patriot on a 2 year deal for $6.4mm.The Patriots vacate a 5th round pick to the Bills.

Fantasy Goo: The Patriots backfield is already loaded with depth, Gillislee adds more as a part time back who is capable of getting a 5+ YPC with limited snaps.

McCoy has totaled 598 yards with four touchdowns and a two-point conversion over his last five games. He continues that run against the Bills this week.

Fantasy Goo: The Browns have allowed 146 rushing yards per game and 14 touchdowns. Gillislee has been a touchdown vulture, but with the matchup both have stand alone value. Shady is a must start RB1 and Gillislee is flex worthy.

The Bills will continue to try to keep Shady fresh by working in Gillislee and having him as the primary goal line back.

Gillislee is indeed out against the Jags.

Fantasy Goo: Only one other team runs the ball more than the Bills. Not only that, no other team has a higher percentage of their red zone TDs come from rushing. Against Jacksonville, those number should be bolstered as a positive game-script is very likely for the Bills. A do-run-run-run, a-do-run-run

McCoy Not At Practice For Bills On Wednesday


LeSean McCoy did not practice Wednesday due to the aggravated hamstring, leaving his Week 8 status questionable. He is and will be receiving medical treatment for the injury throughout the week.

Fantasy Goo: There is no indication yet as to whether or not the Bills are going to have McCoy play, but as shown in Week 7, McCoy is mainly ineffective if not fully healthy. Owners should prepare alternate plans in case McCoy does not play,or in case he plays at less than full capacity.

Mike Gillislee was limited in practice on Wednesday with a foot injury. Coach Rex Ryan said he thinks he should be okay for the Week 8 matchup.

Fantasy Goo: The injury to Gillislee is not considered to be serious at this point, but owners should monitor the situation throughout the week. If fully healthy by Sunday's game against the Patriots, Gillislee could be a solid RB2 should Shady sit out due to the hamstring injury.

McCoy is In: Gillislee Owners None Too Happy


McCoy is active despite early reports this week to the contrary.

Fantasy Goo: There is lots of hesitation now as it relates to Gillislee. On Draft Kings, he is minimum priced, thus I think he is still a great play there as he will reach his 4xfloor. In redrafts, I am indeed keeping him in my line-up for my league of record. I think McCoy could be comparable to Jamaal Charles last week. If you remember, Ware was the man, and Gillislee is just too talented.

Mike Gillislee The Favorite To Backup Shady McCoy In Buffalo


Mike Clay reports that with the suspension and weight problems of Buffalo Bills backup RB Karlos Williams, RB Mike Gilislee might be the favorite to backup starting RB LeSean McCoy. Gillislee was a 5th round draft pick by the Miami Dolphins in 2013, but was released in September of 2015. Gillislee signed with the Bills in November and played five games rushing for 267 yards and 3 TDs. (Mike Clay on Twitter)

Fantasy Goo: LeSean McCoy has a long history of durability issues and going into his 8th year needs to be handcuffed. While Gillislee hasn't done much during his three year career, he only got his first real opportunity late last year with the Bills. If Gillislee is the second string RB, I would advise all LeSean McCoy owners to pick him up.
