2020 Fantasy Outlook
Gilbert beat out Drew Stanton to become the No. 2 behind quarterback Baker Mayfield in 2019. Mayfield regressed in his second NFL season but not to the point of being replaced and remained healthy all season. As such, Gilbert played just eight snaps. With the Browns adding Case Keenum in the offseason to back up Mayfield, Gilbert enters training camp competing for the No. 3 job with undrafted free agent Kevin Davidson. Read Past Outlooks

Likely returning to backup role
QBDallas Cowboys
November 22, 2020
Gilbert is likely to serve as Dallas' backup quarterback Sunday in Minnesota with top signal-caller Andy Dalton expected to start after being activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier this week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
ANALYSIS
After being knocked out of the Cowboys' Week 7 loss to Washington with a concussion, Dalton tested positive for the coronavirus shortly thereafter and proceeded to miss Dallas' two games before a Week 10 bye. With Ben DiNucci languishing in a starting role Week 8 in Philadelphia, Gilbert earned the chance to make his first NFL start Week 9 against the Steelers and proved to be a competent game manager in the loss, completing 21 of 38 attempts for 243 yards, a touchdown and an interception while scrambling three times for 28 yards. Now that he's healthy again, Dalton's larger body of experience at the NFL level should keep him atop the depth chart, but Gilbert seemingly has at least solidified himself as the Cowboys' No. 2 option ahead of DiNucci.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2018
2017
2014
Gilbert made his NFL debut with the Panthers in 2018, then tore up the AAF with a league-leading 2,152 passing yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions. The former 2014 sixth-round pick competed for the Browns' backup quarterback job against Drew Stanton and David Blough. He eventually earned a spot as the No. 3 QB after the team traded Blough to the Lions.
Gilbert has yet to play in a regular season game since being drafted in the sixth round in 2014, but finds himself battling for the Panthers' backup quarterback job with Taylor Heinicke.
The 26-year-old Gilbert is yet to play in an NFL game, and with Cam Newton, Derek Anderson and Joe Webb already on the Panthers' roster, his involvement with the team will probably be limited to being just another training camp arm.
