|Draft: 2009 Round 1 (5)
Ht: 6’2” Wt: 225 DOB: 1986-11-11 Age: 29
|After a pair of seasons leading the Jets to the AFC Championship game, Sanchez put together a career year in 2012 with career highs in passing yards with 3,474, passing touchdowns with 26 and rushing touchdowns with 6. All the more impressive is that Sanchez produced despite having his lead receiver (Santonio Holmes) sulk his way through the season and having an aging Plaxico Burress on the other side with no proven third receiver on the roster and tight end Dustin Keller go through another late season swoon. The reward for Sanchez? A chance to compete with former Bronco Tim Tebow to retain his starting job. Not helping matters is that Holmes returns as the teamís lead receiver and Burress has been replaced by raw rookie Stephen Hill. The current plan is for the Jets to rotate Tebow in for a number of plays each game, basically torpedoing any fantasy value Sanchez had. Unless the rotation plan changes, donít add Sanchez to your roster.
|Mark Sanchez to Cowboys? -- Tue Aug 30 11:55 am --|
Latest trade rumors have Broncos reaching out to Dallas
|Jane slater (@SlaterNFL) on Twitter: "Denver has contacted Dallas about a trade for Mark Sanchez. The Cowboys are not interested in a trade if it involves his current salary." (Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: It's important to remember this isn't the Cowboys actively seeking Sanchez, who was demoted to backup status with Broncos QB Trevor Siemian apparently getting the starting nod. According to Slater, the Cowboys aren't interested in Sanchez at his current $4.5 million rate, so he'd have to take a pay cut to facilitate a deal that brings an experienced clipboard-holder to help out rookie Dak Prescott.
|Broncos name Trevor Siemian starting QB -- Mon Aug 29 11:20 am --|
Kubiak: "He has control of whatís going onĒ
|Itís official: Trevor Siemian is the Broncosí season-opening starting quarterback.
Coach Gary Kubiak informed his players early Monday and the team announced shortly after that the second-year player out of Northwestern will take over where Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler left off. (Denver Post)|
FF Today's Take: While Mark Sanchez was signed this off-season, he failed to impress the coaching staff. The writing was on the wall when Siemian was announced as the starter in Preseason Week 3. The Broncos are expected to employ a run-heavy gameplan while Siemian gains experience as a starting QB in the league.
| QB Trevor Siemian returns to practice -- Wed Aug 24 5:19 pm --|
|Trevor Siemian returned to practice Wednesday and took about 80 percent of his typical workload, NFL Media's James Palmer reported. The Broncos quarterback, who is in the midst of a three-way battle for the starting role, has been battling a sore shoulder and did not throw on Tuesday. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian has the narrow lead over Mark Sanchez and Paxton Lynch at this point in training camp battle. Luckily, his shoulder issue isn't going to prevent him from playing this weekend where a strong performance should be enough to secure the starting job in Denver. Siemian's fantasy outlook is a bit murky due to his limited exposure, but he would immediately be a player to monitor in deep formats once the season opens.
|Sanchez falling down depth chart in Denver -- Mon Aug 22 6:35 pm --|
Trevor Siemian set to start second straight preseason game
|Broncos HC Gary Kubiak said Monday that Trevor Siemian would be his starting quarterback this Saturday against the Los Angeles Rams in preseason game No. 3. Thatís two preseason starts in a row for Siemian in the two most important exhibition games for the first stringers. Kubiak said both Mark Sanchez and first-round rookie Paxton Lynch would play against the Rams. In what order, Kubiak wouldnít say. Nor would he say Siemian is the starter Sept. 8 in the regular-season opener against Carolina. (9News,com)|
FF Today's Take: This news will affect very few redraft owners directly as Sanchez, Siemien or Lynch probably aren't going to see a lot of time in fantasy lineups this fall. However, the fantasy fates of Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and possibly even Virgil Green rest in the hands of the winner. Siemian appears to be in good position to seal the deal this weekend, but the fact Lynch is getting a chance to play in preseason game No. 3 means he is still in the running for the starting spot.
|Denver QB battle heats up this week -- Wed Aug 17 7:02 pm --|
Siemian and Sanchez both playing well
|As Broncos coach Gary Kubiak continues to evaluate the trio of QBs with the hope of sifting out his starter for Saturday and beyond, the new faces on the other side of the ball put the level of play into context. Trevor Siemian and Mark Sanchez, labeled co-No. 1 quarterbacks on the teamís depth chart, took advantage of the different looks, spraying deep balls in the end zone to the roar of the crowd and operating without an interception between them. Kubiak said he would probably decide on a starter Thursday for the upcoming 49ers game. The starter for their season-opening Super Bowl rematch with Carolina on Sept. 8 might be clearer by late Saturday night, after five months of evaluation. (Denver Post)|
FF Today's Take: Gary Kubiak is trying to get the most out of his players and they are responding to the competition. The player who plays the best in practice throughout this week should become the front runner to open the year as the Broncos' starting quarterback.
|Paxton Lynch "really stepping up" -- Mon Aug 1 6:25 pm --|
HC pleased with progress rookie QB has made since spring
|Although the offense was not consistently effective, QB Paxton Lynch followed his stellar performance Sunday with another solid day, although this was defined more by steady work and sound decision-making than hitting deep shots down the sideline and seam. "No. 12 is really, really stepping up," HC Gary Kubiak said. "He's making some progress here." (denverbroncos.com)|
FF Today's Take: Lynch, of course, is battling Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian for the right to start Week 1. He holds a considerable edge in talent and will probably start at some point in 2016, but he's a longshot to be under center Opening Night against Carolina. In other words, a good preseason showing will probably help him take over the starting job by midseason while an average one may keep him on the sidelines until 2017. When he is finally named the starter, he should be a high-upside QB2.
