New England Patriots running back Mike Gillislee will be fighting for a roster spot in training camp, barring an injury to another running back on the team. First-round pick Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead and passing back James White are locks for the roster. That will leave Gillislee, Jeremy Hill, Brandon Bolden and Ralph Webb fighting for one or two spots. The Patriots could cut Gillislee with no dead money on the salary cap. He had just 383 yards and five touchdowns on 104 attempts last season and was buried on the depth chart late in the season. Gillislee is well off the fantasy radar after being a popular pick in 2017 drafts.

Things are looking good for New England Patriots running back Mike Gillislee to get another shot at significant playing time in 2018 with free-agent Dion Lewis unlikely to return. Gillislee was pretty much a non-factor last year, rushing for only 383 yards in nine games, and he was a healthy scratch for much of the second half. He is owed only $1.9 million in 2018, so the Pats will likely keep him around to see what they can get. Rex Burkhead is also set to hit the open market, so New England's backfield could look considerably different next season. Gillislee may be tasked with handling early downs. Although he hasn't been all that productive in recent years, he does have a nose for the end zone and could be a touchdown-dependent fantasy option on a good team.
The New England Patriots face the prospect of losing several key free agents. The Patriots have to address key impending free agents in OTs Nate Solder, Cameron Fleming and LaAdrian Waddle, along with RB Rex Burkhead, WR Danny Amendola, CB Malcolm Butler, WR/ST Matthew Slater and RB Dion Lewis. New England is projected to have approximately $17 million in salary cap space. TE Dwayne Allen, TE Martellus Bennett, DT Alan Branch, LB David Harris and RB Mike Gillislee all could be released to create more cap space.
