When the Buffalo Bills failed to match the New England Patriots’ offer sheet to restricted free agent running back Mike Gillislee, a lot of eyes moved to the running back depth chart in Buffalo. Even with a new offensive philosophy that should see them come down from the league lead in rushing attempts, the second-string running back is a vital position on this roster. In 2017, the job falls on the shoulders of a second-year man out of Arkansas.
