Mike Gillislee News
The New England Patriots have been in contact with free-agent running back Mike Gillislee, who was released by the Saints on Saturday. Gillislee spent last year with New England, and the Patriots could use more running back depth with Rex Burkhead and Jeremy Hill done for the season. Rookie Sony Michel and James White are the current members of the backfield, but Gillislee could provide a short-yardage/goal-line option for head coach Bill Belichick.
The New Orleans Saints released running back Mike Gillislee on Saturday. Gillislee had 16 carries for 43 yards in four games for the Saints, but he was expendable with Mark Ingram returning from his four-game suspension. Gillislee could land with another team in a short-yardage/goal-line role, but he doesn't carry much fantasy value.
New Orleans Saints running back Mike Gillislee was held to two carries for six yards and one reception for nine yards in Week 4 against the New York Giants. Gillislee has taken the backseat to running back Alvin Kamara who has dominated the Saints backfield. Running back Mark Ingram will be returning from suspension in Week 5 which will likely decrease Gillislee's already small workload. Gillislee can be dropped in nearly all formats- he has very limited upside with Kamara and Ingram working ahead of him.
New Orleans Saints running back Mike Gillislee had eight carries for 18 yards in Sunday's win against the Cleveland Browns, an increase of five touches and nine yards from Week 1. Gillislee remains nearly irrelevant in all fantasy formats as running back Alvin Kamara continues to lock down the backfield. Gillislee will be even less of a factor when running back Mark Ingram returns from suspension in Week 5.
New Orleans Saints running back Mike Gillislee struggled in Week 1. In a negative game script where the Saints were playing from behind, Gillislee only totaled three carries for nine yards and a fumble. It is possible for Gillislee to get more touches in the future, but he remains nearly irrelevant in all fantasy formats. In addition, when running back Mark Ingram returns from suspension in Week 5, Gillislee will be even less of a factor in the Saints offense.
