Summary

While Mike Gillislee is slated to take over LeGarrette Blount's 'big back' role in the offense, he's not remotely the same back. He gives two inches and 33 pounds to Blount, and does not run with the same violence as Blount does either. That said, as of now, Gillislee is going to see the early-down and short yardage work, and if he gets the majority of Blount's carries from 2016, that's a significant amount of work assuming the number of carries continues. There's no sure bet it will, as the backfield is healthier than 2016 was and the team may decide to take it easier on the slightly smaller back. Gillislee may have had a 5.7 yards per carry in 2016, but that was on 101 runs , while Blount carried the ball 299 times. Gillislee wearing down is a real concern. (May 22)
