Patriots | Mike Gillislee will receive carries

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 16:44:43 -0700

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee is expected to receive a role like the one free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) had this past season.

Fantasy Tip: Gillislee probably will receive a majority of the carries in the running game and likely will only see a few targets in the passing game. He was very successful in his limited playing time in 2017 and could be a No. 3 running back for fantasy owners.

Patriots | LeGarrette Blount likely to find new team

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 16:43:45 -0700

Free-agent RB LeGarrette Blount (Patriots) likely will not re-sign with the New England Patriots this offseason after the Patriots signed RB Mike Gillislee.

Fantasy Tip: Blount has been linked to a few teams but likely will have to wait until after the draft to sign with a team. He probably will be part of a committee with his next team but could still be a No. 3 running back in some leagues because of his touchdown potential.

Patriots | Mike Gillislee officially joins Patriots

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 13:05:09 -0700

Buffalo Bills RB Mike Gillislee's two-year, $6.4 million offer sheet was not matched by the Bills, thus officially making him a member of the New England Patriots, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots' backfield is officially a crapshoot. With Dion Lewis, James White and Rex Burkhead, among others, already in the mix, Gillislee's touches will be limited. Trying to figure out who Bill Belichick will utilize any given week could turn into regret.

Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo staying put?

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 17:14:33 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo "isn't going anywhere," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Tip: With Garoppolo slated for backup duty again in 2017, he won't have much fantasy value outside of keeper leagues.

Patriots | 'Long shot' Jimmy Garoppolo gets traded

Sun, 23 Apr 2017 11:27:15 -0700

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo figures to be the target of several last-ditch trade attempts from the Cleveland Browns leading up to the start of the 2017 NFL Draft, but the Boston Herald's Karen Guregian considers a potential deal a "long shot" that would require an "overwhelming offer".

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots have stood firm all spring on Garoppolo and consider him more valuable than the 12th overall selection, while the Browns have shown no desire to trade the No. 1 overall pick, so don't expect a deal to happen between now and Thursday. Texas A&M's Myles Garrett remains the favorite for the top pick, although the Browns' front office and coaching staff is reportedly split between him and North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky.

Patriots | More on James White terms

Fri, 21 Apr 2017 06:48:09 -0700

Updating previous reports, New England Patriots RB James White's three-year extension is worth $12.69 million with $5.69 million guaranteed and a $4 million signing bonus.

Fantasy Tip: These guys have a lot of running backs and only so many plays to go around. White made a strong case for Super Bowl MVP, and he, and Dion Lewis, have the most upside in the backfield that also includes Rex Burkhead and potentially Mike Gillislee. This could be a weekly mix and match, but White is a high-end RB3 right now.
