|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 Not helping matters is that Holmes returns as the teamís lead receiver and Burress has been replaced by raw rookie Stephen Hill.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: "I know as much as you guys"

FF Today's Take: The QB position has been an unmitigated disaster for the Eagles this season, and while there have been some successes in Chip Kelly's system, the finished product leaves a lot to be desired. Mark Sanchez is probably the better bet for consistent production, since Sam Bradford is dealing with a bum shoulder and just got cleared from the concussion protocol. Whomever starts isn't more than a QB2 with some underwhelming upside.

Both suffered concussions in Week 10.
|Already facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers without quarterback Sam Bradford, the team will be without running back Ryan Mathews due to a concussion, the team announced. Left tackle Jason Peters (back) is also questionable. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: As expected, Mark Sanchez will get the start at quarterback while DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner will handle the running back duties. Murray's workload may not increase all that much with Mathews out but he may get an extra opportunity or two around the goaline.

Both suffered concussion in Week 10
|Chip Kelly said that Sam Bradford and Ryan Mathews haven't cleared concussion protocol to practice. Jason Peters won't practice either. (Jeff McLane on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Mark Sanchez is expected to start with Bradford suffering a concussion and shoulder injury in Week 10. He's a decent streamer option against a defense giving up the tenth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks. If Mathews sits, most analysts are expecting DeMarco Murray to absorb more action but Kenyon Barner will be active which may cut into Murray's expected bump in workload.
| Sam Bradford expected to miss next two games -- Mon Nov 16 5:05 pm --|
Concussion and separated left shoulder
|It's Sanchize time in Philadelphia.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Eagles starter Sam Bradford will likely miss next Sunday's game against the Buccaneers as well as the team's Thanksgiving matchup against the Lions after suffering a separated shoulder and a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. (NFL.com)|
FF Today's Take: Bradford enjoyed one of his better games of the season in a Week 9 win over Dallas and started out 19-of-25 for 236 yards against Miami on Sunday before exiting. Mark Sanchez will fill in for the former No. 1 overall pick and has a decent chance to lead the Eagles to a pair of wins over the Bucs this weekend and the Lions on Thanksgiving Day. Even with two juicy matchups ahead, owners should consider Sanchez a matchup-based starter at best.
