Recent Game Summaries

2018 Week 2 vs CLE (8 / 18 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

In a surprise turn of events, the Saints gave Gillislee 8 carries after his costly fumble last week. He took away touches from Alvin Kamara and did not do very much with them. He also played next to no role in the passing game but was still used in clear running situations and in the red zone. Gillislee's longest rush was 4 yards and his presence seemed to slow the rhythm of the Saints offense. The league seems to continue to rely on two running backs more and more but Gillislee does not compliment what the Saints want to do on offense and only took more opportunity away from Kamara. The Browns have a stout rush defense and they showed that holding Gillislee to under 20 yards.

2018 Week 1 vs TB (3 / 9 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

This is a game that Gillislee will soon want to forget. The backup running back fumbled one of his three carries and the ball was picked up and returned for a touchdown by Tampa. Thankfully the Saints had abandoned the run and he did not get a chance to touch the ball again. Gillislee is a temporary backup while Mark Ingram is serving his suspension.

Lions | Mike Gillislee works out for Lions (Fri Feb 15, 08:59 AM) - Free-agent RB Mike Gillislee (Saints) worked out for the Detroit Lions Thursday, Feb. 14.

Our View: Gillislee was with the Patriots during the preseason in 2018 but he didn't make their final roster. The Saints did pick him up for about a month after that, but Gillislee has been out of work since that time. A veteran back who runs with power, Gillislee should find a spot somewhere to compete this offseason.
