2019 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Marcus Gilchrist in 2019. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Raiders in March of 2018.
Limited to 15 snaps in finale
SOakland Raiders
January 3, 2019
Gilchrist accrued two tackles (one solo) during Sunday's 35-3 loss to the Chiefs.
Gilchrist logged just 15 defensive snaps after dealing with a calf injury late in the week, but he still finishes the 2018 season tied for the Raiders' team lead in interceptions with three picks in 16 games. He also amassed 58 tackles (40 solo) and six passes defensed while starting at free safety next to Karl Joseph. The 30-year-old Gilchrist is slated to become an unrestricted free agent in 2019, but Oakland could attempt to re-sign him with fellow veteran Reggie Nelson (shoulder) likely on his way out.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
In 2015, the Jets essentially contracted Gilchrist to provide competency, for lack of an appropriately-harsher word, at covering tight ends; the team surrendered an NFL-most 14 scores to the position in 2014. However, with Gilchrist deployed in the secondary, the Jets allowed just two total touchdowns to tight ends in 2015, good for second-fewest in the league. With the presence of tight ends such as Rob Gronkowski, Jordan Cameron and Charles Clay in the division, that is a remarkable turnaround. Fantasy-wise, however, Gilchrist remains a middling option at DB, but another 82 tackle, seven PD and three interception stat-line from last season is undoubtedly within reach.
Following a 2014 campaign with the Chargers in which he racked up 76 tackles, one sack, five passes defensed, one pick, and two forced fumbles in 16 games, Gilchrist is slated to start at safety next to Calvin Pryor in 2015. The addition of Gilchrist is a piece of the improvement to the Jets' secondary along with fellow offseason signees Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie, and Buster Skrine.
Gilchrist got the chance to start at strong safety in 2013, and he responded with a great season, playing in all 16 games and logging 77 total tackles and two interceptions. The Bolts appear very happy with Gilchrist as they waived the once very highly touted Brandon Taylor this offseason.
Gilchrist has been used only as a corner thus far in his career, but he has been working exclusively at strong safety during camp and could very well open the season as the starter opposite Eric Weddle if Brandon Taylor is not fully recovered from ACL surgery.
It looks like Gilchrist, who had two interceptions in 2011, will be the third corner in San Diego this season.
Gilchrist has a fantastic opportunity to make a big impact in his first season. He is slotted to serve as the primary nickel back and has a chance to become the primary kick and punt returner with the departure of Darren Sproles. At Clemson, Gilchrist was a dangerous return man, and he has said that he welcomes the chance to take on that role in San Diego.
