    Will Gillislee be traded?

    Of all the Patriots RBs he seem the likely one to be traded, he has dropped to 4th in Depth chart, But he provides upside in a different offensive system, that focuses more on Running game. And he might be able to bring a defensive starter back.

    Doubtful IMO.

    We should be looking for a pass rusher or LB, whichever McClellin isn't playing when he gets back. Both if possible.

    G has but two problems. He fumbles (too much for BB), and he never seems to escape ankle tackles.

    G is a serious player, and he'll be needed this year.

    Blount is better than him still. Gillislee is still young and over the 3 year deal might be more productive than Blount over the same span. But for this first of 3 years, we seem to have downgraded.

    He might still be good, but we are not designed for running game, he doesnt fit this offense

    Gillislee is the physical type back on this current team so I doubt he goes. Lewis is playing close to how he did pre-injury and that's eating Gillisllee's PT.

    Lewis is doing a lot better than last year, but he's not as elusive as in his prime.

    He's a guy to put in space, so I don't know what's with these handoffs between the tackles. I mean delayed handoffs? Passes in the flat?

    I think Burkhead was finally heard from, and he looked good. If G doesn't get it going Burkhead and Lewis could carry the load.

    As for missing Blount? I don't miss his 3.1 YPC during the playoffs.

    Pats are a pass first team, the OL doesn't run block all that great.

    Gillislee will have more importance to this team as the weather changes. He has 1 fumble this year and I think it gets harped on a little too much. Hopefully he can turn the corner and start getting more than 3.7 yard per carry.
