Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 8 vs LAC (11 / 34 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

With the 4 man committee in tow, Gillislee saw most of his carries in the second half, and once again wasn't involved in the passing game. He remains a clock killer, short yardage, and goal line back at best.

2017 Week 7 vs ATL (8 / 31 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Touchdown dependent as ever, the running back rotation is convoluted enough that Gillislee's role is now goal line and clock killer. As a result, he saw most of his action in the 4th quarter, and his touch count may vary wildly week to week.

2017 Week 6 vs NYJ (10 / 44 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Dion Lewis started the game against the Jets, and when Gillislee eventually coughed up a fumble, he ended up riding the pine for much of the game. As noted in prior weeks, Gillislee's production remains highly goal-line dependent, and even in this game, Dion Lewis scored a 1 yard touchdown, not Gillislee. This backfield is a full blown committee on a week to week basis.

2017 Week 5 vs TB (12 / 52 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

After a hot start to the season, Gillislee has now found it to be tough sledding for 3 weeks on the ground. The offensive line hasn't been opening up huge holes, and due to his lack of passing game usage, Gillislee remains a classic two down, touchdown dependent back. As with LeGarrette Blount last year, he will continue to be game script dependent.

2017 Week 4 vs CAR (12 / 49 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Gillislee, who tends to be highly game flow dependent, was once again held out of the end zone. He did see Dion Lewis 'vulture' a score and had a couple nice runs, but beyond that, sledding was tough, and the Patriots were once again pass heavy. With the state of the defense, Gillislee may continue to have limited opportunities, since most games are turning into a shootout.

2017 Week 3 vs HOU (12 / 31 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

With barely any running game, this was not the week for Mike Gillislee. A combination of said lack of room plus a lack of elusiveness led to a paltry day for Gillislee, who has been salvaging his lines with touchdowns. Better days are ahead, but on days when the Patriots go pass heavy, he may turn in some relative duds.

2017 Week 2 vs NO (18 / 69 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Though he didn't score 3 touchdowns again, Gillislee still found paydirt on a short score thanks to a Brandin Cooks pass that ended up just short of the goal line. Gillislee ran hard, and notably dominated work after Rex Burkhead left the game with an injury. If Burkhead's injury is a multiple week affair, Gillislee will be very safe in terms of touch counts.

2017 Week 1 vs KC (15 / 45 / 3 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Gillislee operated as the clear goal line back, which was notable. It was an up and down game for Gillislee, who did score three times on short runs, but also whiffed on a couple key conversions, including on fourth down. His weekly touches may be volatile given the Patriots' stable of running backs, but it seems like the goal line touches will be his.
