News: The Buffalo Bills signed DL Jarron Gilbert on Saturday after the team released LB Antonio Coleman. Gilbert has been on the Jets practice squad the past two seasons. He appeared in one game with New York in 2010, playing against Buffalo in the season finale.
Analysis: Gilbert was Chicagos third round pick out of San Jose State in 2009, and appeared in four games as a rookie with the Bears before being released before the 2010 season. Fantasy owners should leave him untouched in all formats for the remainder of the year.
News: The Jets promoted DT Jarron Gilbert from their practice squad to the 53-man roster on Thursday. He has now been up twice this season.
Analysis: Gilbert played in four games for Chicago last season before being let go. He will just provide some depth for the Jets and can continue to be ignored in Fantasy play.
News: The Jets signed DL Jarron Gilbert to the practice squad Friday after waiving him on Thursday.
Analysis: Gilbert never dressed for New York after his promotion from the practice squad in late October. He is nothing more than roster depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.
News: The Jets waived DL Jarron Gilbert on Thursday.
Analysis: Gilbert never dressed for New York since his promotion from the practice squad in late October. He is nothing more than roster depth and can be ignored in Fantasy.
News: The Jets elevated DL Jarron Gilbert to the active roster. "We really liked him when he came out of college," coach Rex Ryan said. "He's a big athletic guy with long arms." Ryan also said Gilbert will be on a weight-gain program, after getting down below 260 pounds with the Bears, who drafted him in the third round a year ago.
Analysis: Just because Gilbert is now on the 53-man roster does not mean he will impact Fantasy rosters. Continue to ignore him in Week 8 against Green Bay.
News: The Jets filled out their eight-player practice squad on Tuesday, signing running back Chauncey Washington, a preseason standout; defensive tackle Jarron Gilbert, a former Bears third-round pick; and linebacker Cody Brown, a second-round pick of the Cardinals a year ago. To make room on the squad, New York released linebacker Ricky Foley and defensive back Donovan Warren.
Analysis: None of these players are expected to make a big impact in 2010. It's safe to ignore them in all Fantasy formats until further notice.
News: The Bears inactives for Week 15 at Baltimore include WR Juaqin Iglesias, DB Craig Steltz, DB D.J. Moore and DL Jarron Gilbert.
Analysis: Keep all of these players reserved in all leagues. When active they have minimal Fantasy value.
News: Bears DT Jarron Gilbert signed a four-year deal, locking him into coming to Bears camp on time in late July. Gilbert was the team's top pick in the 2009 draft when they took him in the third round.
Analysis: Gilbert is a big guy with some versatility, but he'll need some coaching but could contribute as a situational player as a rookie and develop into a starter by 2010. He's worth a late-round pick in rookie-only drafts this summer.
News: The Bears grabbed a big defensive lineman in San Jose State's Jarron Gilbert in Round 3 of the 2009 draft. Gilbert is a nice fit for the Bears in that he's big enough to play defensive tackle but athletic enough to rush the passer. "We really didn't expect him to be there but we felt that we wanted to [take him]," GM Jerry Angelo said of Gilbert. "Feel he is going to be a very good pass rusher for us. Maybe he isn't 100 percent prototype of the defensive lineman we're used to seeing because he's very tall. But he's very, very talented. ... I think he is ready to go."
