Patriots Beat: RB Mike Gillislee could find spot in rotation

MassLive - [Full Article]

The Patriots, meanwhile, are well-insulated from an injury hampering their running attack. Mike Gillislee struggled at times early in 2017. But he's still effective. It speaks volumes for the Patriots' running back depth that he was inactive for much of last season. With Dion Lewis gone, it's very possible that he could re-take a spot in the running back rotation.

Fantasy Impact:

The story was mainly about comparing the Patriots' RB situation with that of the Steelers and LeVeon Bell's holdout. The Pats still have White and Burkhead but still lack a between-the-tackles type of runner. With Gillislee around yet, it's possible he once again emerges, but the New England backfield lately seems to need many weeks of understanding before someone is deemed a safe fantasy play.
