2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Patriots signed Mike Gillislee from division foe Buffalo after letting LeGarrette Blount and his 18 rushing touchdowns leave for Philadelphia via free agency. Gillislee's skill set on short yardage and goal line carries reportedly impressed Bill Belichick so much in defensive meetings that he wanted to make him a Patriot in 2017.

Although often considered a bruising back with average speed, Gillislee averaged an impressive 5.7 yards per carry in each of his two seasons with Buffalo, including a 12-carry, 85-yard game against the Patriots in Week 8 that included a rushing touchdown.

On a negative note, the fact that the Patriots boast a backfield with four running backs that could see the field in any game situation negates Gillislee's value and will prohibit him from likely finishing as a RB1 in fantasy. But when it comes to goal line carries, no other team since 2012 has more one-yard to go carries than New England and Gillislee appears to be the primary player for those lucrative plays.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Rex Burkhead expected to play
Gillislee expecte to be inactive
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Jan 21, 7:00 am

New England Patriots
Despite being listed as questionable for Sunday’s AFC Championship game vs. Jaguars, Patriots’ RB Rex Burkhead will play, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Burkhead (knee) missed last week's game and was limited in practice this week but should play in the AFC Championship game against the Jaguars. His presence on the field knocks the shine of Dion Lewis' fantasy value but Lewis should still see the majority of running back touches for New England. Mike Gillislee (knee) is expected to be inactive.


Injury Burkhead, Gillislee limited on Wednesday
Both limited last week before being inactive

Pats -- Limited: Tom Brady (right hand), Rex Burkhead, Branch and Mike Gillislee. (Ryan O'Halloran on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Both running backs were limited last week and both were inactive. It's likely that Burkhead will be active this week although he was seen favoring his injured knee during practice last week. From a fantasy perspective, this is still Dion Lewis' backfield despite being repeatedly vulture at the goaline last week.


Injury Burkhead, Gillislee not expected to play
Both were limited in practice this week
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jan 13, 9:30 am

New England Patriots
Patriots’ RBs Rex Burkhead (knee) and Mike Gillislee (knee), both listed as questionable for tonight’s Divisional Playoff game against the Titans, are not expected to play, per league sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Burkhead and Gillislee got in limited practices this week and both are listed as questionable. In their absence, expect Dion Lewis and James White (ankle) to handle the majority of work at the running back position with Lewis being the featured back as he has been the last few weeks.


Injury Burkhead limited on Wednesday
Said to be favoring his left knee
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jan 10, 3:10 pm

New England Patriots
Running back Rex Burkhead, who returned to practice last week on a limited basis, is still heavily favoring his injured left knee. Burkhead missed the final two games of the regular season after suffering the injury against the Steelers. If he is available Saturday against the Titans, it appears he’ll be limited, barring a rapid turnaround in the coming days. (Boston Herald)

FFToday's Take: In addition to Burkhead, Mike Gillislee is also battling a knee injury. He missed practice on Wednesday. It appears Dion Lewis is on track to getting the start in the Patriots backfield. James White (ankle) was also limited in practice Wednesday but he is expected to play.


Injury Gillislee misses practice Tuesday
Burkhead, Hogan back

FFToday's Take: In addition to Burkhead on the practice field, it appears WR Chris Hogan will return. Hogan hasn't played since Week 14 and hasn't done much on the field since he was injured in Week 9. As usual with the Patriots, we'll have to wait until the Inactives come out to know for sure who will suit up on gameday.


Injury Hogan, White expected to sit for Patriots
New England down two key offensive players
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 24, 7:00 am

New England Patriots
The New England Patriots are expected to be without running back James White and receiver Chris Hogan for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. White will sit out with an ankle injury, while Hogan is dealing with a hurt shoulder. Both players practiced all week and were listed as questionable. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: With White out of the running back mix, it will allow Mike Gillislee to be active for the first time since Week 8. Expect Dion Lewis and Gillislee to handle the majority of touches out of the backfield. Danny Amendola and Brandin Cooks should see an uptick in targets with Hogan out.


Injury Rex Burkhead expected back for playoffs
Patriots looking to roll with Dion Lewis & James White in Week 16
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Mon Dec 18, 12:20 pm

New England Patriots
Ian Rapoport on Twitter: "#Patriots RB Rex Burkhead was diagnosed with just a knee sprain after his MRI, source said. The team is optimistic their versatile weapon will be back for the playoffs. Good news, especially considering what it originally looked like." (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Dion Lewis should remain in place as the lead back, but we'll likely see more of James White -- and perhaps even some Mike Gillislee, until we reach the playoffs.


Injury Sprained knee for Burkhead? MRI today
Should be back for the playoffs
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 18, 9:00 am

New England Patriots
Heading into the MRI, the #Patriots believe RB Rex Burkhead suffered a sprained knee, along with a bruise from a player landing on it. No torn ACL. The early hope is for a return for the playoffs. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Patriots lost one of their cogs in the running back group yesterday. It sounds like Burkhead avoided a season-ending injury but an MRI is coming today. Dion Lewis, James White and Mike Gillislee will handle running back duties during the final two weeks of the regular season.
