    New Orleans Saints RB Mike Gillislee managed only three carries for nine yards and lost a fumble in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee joined the team only a week ago, but he appeared to be a good candidate to fill the Mark Ingram role in this offense while the latter served his four-game suspension. However, Gillislee offers virtually nothing in the passing game, so he can't afford to make mistakes - such as committing fumbles that result in defensive touchdowns. At this point, there's little reason to believe he'll earn enough trust over the next three weeks to be of use to fantasy owners, meaning he probably belongs on waivers in most leagues.

    New Orleans Saints RB Mike Gillislee is listed as the backup running back on the Saints' initial depth chart.

    Huddle Up: Take this listing with a grain of salt. Alvin Kamara will receive the bulk of the backfield work this week, with Gillislee and Boston Scott sharing touches behind him. Both Gillislee and Scott are too risky to start.

  • Posted: 9/2/2018 3:09pm ET

    Free-agent RB Mike Gillislee (Patriots) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Sept. 2, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee probably will see some touches while Mark Ingram serves his suspension but will not be a big factor in fantasy leagues. Owners in standard leagues could consider picking him up off waivers as a depth running back on their roster.

    New England Patriots RB Jeremy Hill has won a roster spot, beating out RB Mike Gillislee.

    Huddle Up: Hill is still behind Rex Burkhead, James White and perhaps even Brandon Bolden in the pecking order in Foxboro, so he has an uphill climb to fantasy relevance again. Still, Burkhead has had propensity for injury, so Hill could re-emerge sooner rather than later.

  • Posted: 9/1/2018 11:19am ET

    The New England Patriots released RB Mike Gillislee, a source said Saturday, Sept. 1.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee was a fantasy option last season for some teams, but he was beaten out for a roster spot by Jeremy Hill, the former Cincinnati back. It's likely that Gillislee won't take long to find another organization, but avoid him for fantasy purposes until further notice.

  • Posted: 8/29/2018 8:59am ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee's roster spot is in jeopardy as he battles Jeremy Hill and Brandon Bolden and others for the team's fourth running back slot behind Rex Burkhead, Sony Michel and James White. The roster cutdown to 53 players is Saturday, Sept. 1. 'Every preseason, I feel like it's a little harder for the running backs,' Gillislee said. 'But I'm doing all I can to make make the team or whatever it is, whether it's here or going (elsewhere).'

    Huddle Up: Gillislee's first year with the Pats was a disappointment, finishing with 398 total yards and five TDs as he took a backseat to Dion Lewis (1,110 total yards, nine TDs) and Burkhead (518, eight). Now enter Michel, a first-round pick out of Georgia, and Hill, the former Bengal who's looked better than Gillislee in the preseason, and it very well could end up being a one (season)-and-done run for Gillislee in New England.

  • Posted: 5/6/2018 10:32am ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee is likely fighting for a roster spot in 2018 after opening last season as the team's No. 1 running back, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN.

    Huddle Up: Reiss identifies first-round pick Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead and James White as 'locks,' leaving only one or two open spots for Gillislee, Jeremy Hill, Brandon Bolden and undrafted free-agent Ralph Webb. Given Bolden's work on special teams, it is likely special teams Gillislee and Hill will be batting for the final spot if New England chooses to keep five.

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee) won't play against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship game, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Gillislee out of action, Dion Lewis becomes a little easier to trust in DFS contests. Rex Burkhead could also be worth a flier.

  • Posted: 1/19/2018 1:14pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 19, and is listed as questionable for the AFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee has not played in several weeks and could be inactive again even though he has been participating in practice. He would only see limited touches if he plays and would not be a strong fantasy option.

  • Posted: 1/18/2018 1:35pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 18.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee's status for the AFC Championship game is uncertain, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He would see limited carries if he plays against the Jacksonville Jaguars and may not be a great fantasy option.

  • Posted: 1/13/2018 7:16am ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee) is not expected to play in the team's Divisional Round playoff game against the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee was only able to participate in one practice session during the week on a limited basis and was listed as questionable on the injury report. Assuming that he is inactive for the game, RB James White should see additional snaps versus Tennessee as the backup to RB Dion Lewis.

  • Posted: 1/11/2018 1:00pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Jan. 11, and is listed as questionable for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee may be a game-time decision, so owners will need to check the inactive list on his status. He probably would see some work around the goal line if he plays but probably can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 1/10/2018 2:28pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 10.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee probably will need to practice at some point this week if he wants a chance to play in the Divisional Round playoff game. He would probably see limited touches if he plays and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/4/2018 8:23am ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee) is out of practice Thursday, Jan. 4.

    Huddle Up: He doesn't figure to be used enough to be worth consideration in playoff leagues unless someone were to go down.

  • Posted: 12/29/2017 2:35pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee) will not play in the Week 17 game against the New York Jets after missing practice again on Friday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee and Rex Burkhead are out and James White is listed as questionable, so Brandon Bolden could be thrust into a larger role behind Dion Lewis.

  • Posted: 12/28/2017 1:21pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 28.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee's status is uncertain at this point, so owners will need to monitor the situation over the next few days. He would have some value in standard leagues if he plays because he receives carries close to the goal line.

  • Posted: 12/27/2017 3:28pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 27.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Gillislee's status later in the week to see if he will be able to play. He would see limited touches if he plays but would have some value in standard leagues because of his touchdown potential.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 9:13am ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee is active for Week 16's game against the Buffalo Bills.

    Huddle Up: With RBs Rex Burkhead (knee) and James White (ankle) sidelined this week, Gillislee will play for the first time since Oct. 29, and it wouldn't be surprising if he saw most of his opportunities in goal-line situations. He's unlikely to receive many carries in other scenarios as the backup to RB Dion Lewis, making him a touchdown-dependent option in deeper fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 12/20/2017 7:31pm ET

    New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee could be active in the team's Week 16 game Sunday, Dec. 24, in light of RB Rex Burkhead's (knee) injury that will sideline him for the remainder of the regular season. It would be the first time he's active since Oct. 29.

    Huddle Up: Gillislee was out to a strong start in his first year in New England, tallying four touchdowns through the first two weeks of the campaign, but gradually fell down the depth chart from there. He probably won't be getting many touches even if he does find himself in the game plan, and will therefore be a touchdown-dependent option that should be reserved for deeper formats.
