LB - FA
With Danny Trevathan (thumb) out, Nick Kwiatkoski got the start on Sunday night, but it was Jonathan Anderson who played a lot down the stretch.
Anderson finished with three tackles (two solo) against Dallas and performed better this week than last. He is still young and as a depth piece behind Trevathan and Jerrell Freeman.
UDFA Jonathan Anderson emerged late last season for the Bears appearing in 11 games, making three starts. He had 30 tackles, two pass breakups and an interception.
The 24-year-old TCU product showed promise, but with free agent additions Danny Trevathan and Jerrell Freeman moving into the starting lineup that opportunity is gone. Also, the Bears have Christian Jones, John Timu, Lamin Barrow and 2016 fourth-rounder Nick Kwiatkowski under contract. Anderson might move back to the practice squad if the Bears can stash him away.
Linebacker Jonathan Anderson finished Thursday's game with four tackles, two of which were solo. He also had one pass defense.
Anderson played well, but he too inconsistent for most IDP leagues. Consider him in deep leagues only.
Linebacker Jonathan Anderson finished Sunday's game with three tackles, all solo.
Anderson has produced tackles the last few weeks and should be considered in deep IDP leagues.
Linebacker Jonathan Anderson finished with three tackles, all solo, in Sunday's win against the St Louis Rams.
Jonathan Anderson has made plays for the Bears the last two weeks. He is worth keeping an eye on down the stretch of the season as he may be a waiver wire gem pickup in IDP leagues.
