If there's been one thing Gillislee has been very good at, it's running the football, and particularly well at the goal-line. Over the last two seasons he's totaled 151.2 fantasy points on 148 carries. Yeah, and now he's going to an offense where the guy he's replacing led the league with 72 redzone carries. Nobody else had more than 59. There is risk, but it's well worth it if he can get onto the field.

Mike Gillislee (hamstring) not playing on Saturday night

Mike Gillislee (hamstring) will not play in New England's second preseason game on Saturday night in Houston.

Fantasy Impact

This comes as no surprise as the free agent addition hasn't practiced at all over the past two weeks. Gillislee was considered a sexy, high upside fantasy pick over the off-season, but his continued absence is cause for concern. Rex Burkhead has been playing the "early down" role in his place.
