Darron Gibson was the central defensive midfielder who got the start in place of Gareth Barry, who is serving a suspension, in Everton's win over Newcastle this past weekend.
While Gibson was part of an Everton side that performed better than any XI in quite some time, it didn't translate to fantasy success for him. He ended up with just a single point. That would indicate without a goal or an assist, he isn't prone to accumulating points, so even though he looks a good bet to deputize until Barry returns and Everton are facing off against a lackluster QPR side, investment in Gibson is not recommended.

Roberto Martinez confirmed that Darron Gibson is set to return to training next week for Everton, and hopes to see the midfielder in action again before season's end.

Gibson will provide depth upon his return, but with two central defensive midfield positions in Martinez's system, Gareth Barry and James McCarthy have had solid seasons and will likely continue their partnership through the remainder of the season. Still, he is young, has room to grow, and should figure more heavily next season assuming he stays fit.

Darron Gibson is set to miss significant time away from action for the second time already this season, after injuring his knee while playing for Republic of Ireland in their midweek World Cup qualifier.

This is shaping up to be a lost season for Gibson as he can't seem to stay on the pitch for very long without sustaining an injury. With Gareth Barry and James McCarthy added to Everton's midfield during the transfer window, Roberto Martinez isn't heavily dependent on Gibson's health. When he eventually does return to fitness, Gibson may find it difficult to crack the starting eleven.

Darron Gibson started in the Capital One Cup for Everton in mid-week marking his first action since the start of the 2013-14 campaign.

Darron Gibson has been missing all season so far after a strong pre-season showing. The midfielder started in the Toffees' League Cup match on Tuesday and played 68 minutes. Gibson's ability to start two matches in succession coming off of a significant injury layoff isn't certain but managers should expect him to be involved to at least some extent this weekend with increasing participation in the weeks ahead. Gibson still hasn't proven himself as a productive fantasy player but at a reasonable price (6.31) he is worth monitoring.

Darron Gibson is back in training for Everton but according to reports will not make it back until after the international break.

The break comes at exactly the right time for the former Manchester United man. If he doesn't play on Saturday then presumably Roberto Martinez would be justified in holding him out of Ireland's qualifier with Sweden on the 6th. Just how Gibson would feel about that isn't known but from Everton's point of view it would be ideal to give him the two weeks to fully recover from the injury and regain as much fitness as possible. Regardless, look for Fellaini in the holding role and Barkley attacking.

Darron Gibson's knee strain is lingering and may, according to Roberto Martinez, keep him out until after the International Break.

With Ross Barkley's goal-scoring performance, Martinez will feel he's in good hands until Gibson can return to the line-up. If Barkley has another strong performance this coming weekend, it will make Martinez's choice an interesting one when Gibson comes back as he never staked a strong claim to a starting spot under David Moyes.

Darron Gibson picked up a knee strain late in the pre-season and is rated at 50/50 to be fit for Everton's first match of the season.

Roberto Martinez seems to like the former Manchester United midfielder but it seems unlikely that Gibson would have started as Everton enjoy relatively good health among their starters heading into the season. Still, Gibson is no worse than a key reserve for the Toffees so his absence will definitely thin Martinez's bench.
