Cowboys | Mark Sanchez ineffective in relief

Sun, 01 Jan 2017 13:36:51 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Mark Sanchez was 9-for-17 for 85 yards in a 27-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Sanchez was also picked off twice.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, barring a big injury, Sanchez won't be utilized the rest of the way unless it is mop-up duty. However, Sanchez's status for 2017 looks tenuous at best. He is a pure backup QB with no fantasy value at this point.

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 06:15:51 -0800

Cowboys | Tony Romo to see action

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 05:12:49 -0800

Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is expected to see action in Week 17. QB Dak Prescott will start the game, and QB Mark Sanchez will also see playing time, but the amount hasn't been determined.

Fantasy Tip: Avoid all three signal callers in fantasy this week. Prescott could wind up playing the first half, much like a preseason game, before giving way to the two vets.

Cowboys | Mark Sanchez should see most snaps

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 15:28:12 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Mark Sanchez is expected to receive most of the snaps at quarterback in Week 17, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: This strategy makes sense since the Cowboys have already secured the No. 1 seed in the playoffs. As Sanchez has proven throughout his career, he should not be started in the fantasy realm. In fact, the Philadelphia Eagles' makes for a sneaky start with Sanchez playing.

Cowboys | Mark Sanchez expected to play

Thu, 29 Dec 2016 12:34:58 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Mark Sanchez will be active for the team's Week 17 game and is expected to play once the team decides to take QB Dak Prescott out of the game.

Fantasy Tip: The Cowboys have already clinched the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC, so Prescott will see limited playing time. Sanchez has attempted one pass this season and should be avoided in all fantasy leagues.

Tue, 27 Dec 2016 17:41:12 -0800

Dallas Cowboys QB Mark Sanchez is expected to be active for Week 17. QB Tony Romo would only play with the protection of the starting offensive line, but OT Tyron Smith (knee) will not be playing.

Cowboys | Mark Sanchez signs with Dallas

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 15:02:39 -0700

Updating a previous story, free-agent QB Mark Sanchez (Broncos) has agreed to a contract with the Dallas Cowboys. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Dak Prescott owners have nothing to worry here, as Sanchez will only serve as a veteran presence and injury insurance for however long Tony Romo is out. Once Romo returns, it is entirely possible Sanchez goes right back to being a free agent.

Cowboys | Dallas expected to add Mark Sanchez

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 13:41:42 -0700

Free-agent QB Mark Sanchez (Broncos) is expected to sign with the Dallas Cowboys, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez likely would be the backup to Dak Prescott if he signs with the Cowboys, but he could have a chance to start if Prescott struggles. Owners should avoid Sanchez during drafts, but he could be a waiver wire option during the season if he becomes the starter.

Broncos | Denver cuts Mark Sanchez

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 13:08:59 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez was released Saturday, Sept. 3, according to a source.

Cowboys | Mark Sanchez not trade target for Dallas

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 16:10:40 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez is not a trade option for the Dallas Cowboys if they have to accept his current contract. The Broncos have approached the Cowboys about a possible trade involving Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez could be more of an option for the Cowboys if he is released by the Broncos. Sanchez will be a backup no matter where he plays this season and will not be a fantasy option unless he starts.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez doesn't play vs. LA

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 21:47:32 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez did not play in the team's third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 27, against the Los Angeles Rams. If the team elects to cut him, they save $4.5 million and a seventh-round draft pick.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez hasn't stepped up and seized the chance in Denver, falling behind Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch with the usual comedy of errors during his first two preseason games. It appears his time is over in Denver, and he is no longer a fantasy option whether he sticks around or finds work elsewhere.

Broncos | Paxton Lynch to be No. 2 QB Saturday

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 17:24:18 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian will draw the start against the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday, Aug. 27, and will be followed by rookie QB Paxton Lynch and then QB Mark Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: This was somewhat expected after Sanchez lost two fumbles in limited action during last weekend's preseason loss to the San Francisco 49ers, and pretty much slams the door on his chances to open the season as the starter. There is also reason to believe Lynch may have a shot to open the season as the starter, especially if he shines in the snaps he sees with the first team Saturday. Siemian is obviously the favorite now, but it seems obvious owners should not be looking for a QB2 in this mess of a situation.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez falls behind in race

Mon, 22 Aug 2016 20:10:05 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez has completed 20 of his 30 pass attempts in the preseason, but too many negative plays have cost him the lead in the starting quarterback competition against QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez would be a low-end QB2 if he were to win the job, but he obviously has no fantasy appeal if he cannot beat out Siemian or Lynch. Things are looking bleak for the veteran in Denver.

Broncos | Denver to give QBs equal snaps

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 12:41:55 -0700

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian will start against the San Francisco 49ers Saturday, Aug. 20, but head coach Gary Kubiak said QB Mark Sanchez will receive the same amount of snaps during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Siemian and Sanchez continue to compete for the starting quarterback job and this game should be important because the team may decide on their starter in the near future. Neither quarterback is a great option for fantasy owners, but the winner of the job could be a No. 2 quarterback for owners since Denver has solid receiving options.

Broncos | Denver uncertain who will start Saturday

Sun, 14 Aug 2016 07:30:24 -0700

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak hasn't announced if QB Mark Sanchez or QB Trevor Siemian will start the club's second preseason game against the San Francisco Giants Saturday, Aug. 20. Each quarterback played a quarter during the preseason opener against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 11, and both players will continue to receive starter reps in practice on a daily basis for the foreseeable future.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of which quarterback wins the competition for the starting job in Denver, they should be viewed as a low-end QB2 in the majority of seasonal leagues and as a possible bye-week replacement.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez efficient in win

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 21:23:59 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez completed 10 of his 13 passes for 99 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 22-0 win over the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is in a fight for the starting quarterback job, and this performance should help his cause. With solid weapons to work with, he should be a mid-range QB2 if he opens the year on center.

Broncos | Paxton Lynch will play a lot

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 13:44:05 -0700

Denver Broncos rookie QB Paxton Lynch will play the entire second half of Denver's first preseason game against the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 11. QB Trevor Siemian will play in the second quarter behind QB Mark Sanchez, who will start.

Fantasy Tip: The Denver quarterback situation is a sticky one, and one that should be avoided if possible in the fantasy realm. As stated earlier, none of the Broncos' quarterbacks should be drafted as fantasy starters.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez will start in preseason

Tue, 09 Aug 2016 13:31:07 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez will start the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 11, against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez and Trevor Siemian will probably see a good deal of playing time as the preseason progresses in order for the coaching staff to better determine their regular season starter. Whoever wins the job should only be viewed as a bye-week replacement at best, however.

Broncos | Co-starters at QB in Denver

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 08:26:51 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez and QB Trevor Siemian are listed as co-starters on the team's first depth chart Monday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Whomever is under center for the Broncos has a lot to work with on offense. Sanchez has pretty much shown what he is, and Siemian is an unknown. Both are low-end QB2 options in fantasy.

Broncos | Denver starting QB still undecided

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 20:46:27 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez and QB Trevor Siemian will continue to compete for the starting quarterback spot, and head coach Gary Kubiak said he hasn't even "come close" to deciding on the starter for the preseason game against the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever opens the year as the starter will have a solid supporting cast, and either player could be a serviceable fantasy backup or viable starter in two-quarterback leagues.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez has erratic day

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 20:31:24 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez had an up-and-down day in practice Monday, Aug. 1. He completed six consecutive passes working with the first unit in seven-on-seven drills, but he also misfired on four straight during the session and he was picked off in the red zone. "Mark threw a pick in the red zone; we can't do that," head coach Gary Kubiak said.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is still believed to have a leg up in the competition for the starting gig, although nothing is made official just yet. The winner of the Denver QB job will be a Top 15 option at his position.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez benched at practice

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 18:19:09 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez was benched after throwing an interception at practice Friday, July 29, and was replaced by QB Trevor Siemian, who led the first-team offense for the remainder of practice. Head coach Gary Kubiak said after practice he expects Sanchez and Siemian to receive an equal amount of reps over the next couple of weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez still has to be considered the favorite to open the year as the starter, but he doesn't have value outside of two-quarterback leagues.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez to receive first snaps

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 16:49:21 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez will receive the first set of snaps during practice Thursday, July 28, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. He will be followed by QB Trevor Siemian and QB Paxton Lynch. Kubiak said the quarterback rotation will change each day.

Fantasy Tip: Kubiak said there is no favorite at this point, but Sanchez will be starting off the drills Thursday. Owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during preseason to see who wins the job. Sanchez and Siemian are the top candidates at this point but neither is a great fantasy option.

Broncos | Denver QBs to receive equal reps

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 12:36:10 -0700

Denver Broncos QBs Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch will receive equal snaps at the start of training camp, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak said there is no timetable on selecting a starting quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez and Siemian appear to be the top candidates for the job and the decision likely will not come until after a few preseason games. The winner of the competition will have weapons to work with on offense but should be seen as a No. 2 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez named the starter?

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 06:11:12 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez was endorsed as the starting quarterback to the team by head coach Gary Kubiak, according to DT Sylvester Williams.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is expected to compete with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch. Sanchez would be a low-end QB2 in fantasy that could have upside with the number of weapons around him.

Broncos | Trevor Siemian has real shot to start

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 06:42:49 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian has a legitimate chance in his battle with QB Mark Sanchez for the starting quarterback spot.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably viewed as unlikely, though. He would have very fringe QB2 value in fantasy if he won the gig.

Broncos | Denver QB battle 'even'

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 10:06:48 -0700

Denver Broncos FS T.J. Ward said the team's quarterback competition is "even" between QBs Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch. "We got three guys working really hard," Ward said. "They've all worked with the 1's, 2's and 3's. We have seen them work with different receivers in the starting offense and second-string offense. I'm not sure (who will start in September). ... Sometimes you really have to see who threw the ball or who is starting with the 1's because they're pretty even."

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez has the most experience, but Siemian and Lynch are younger and have more upside at the position. The job will be decided in training camp this summer. Lynch is likely to sit and learn, leaving the competition mainly between Sanchez and Siemian. Regardless of who wins the job, neither QB should be trusted as anything more than a midrange fantasy backup.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez has to win job

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 12:26:38 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez must win the starting quarterback job in training camp, according to The Denver Post's Troy Renck. Renck said he originally thought it was Sanchez's job to lose, but he still gives him a slight edge as the starter.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez's experience and leadership probably give him an edge over Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch. Whoever starts, though, isn't close to a consistent fantasy starter.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian gridlocked

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 11:44:49 -0700

Denver Broncos QBs Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian are "looking each other in the eye" for the starting quarterback position, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. QB Paxton Lynch is the clear No. 3 quarterback at this point.

Fantasy Tip: It was to be expected that Lynch would be on the outside looking in for his rookie season. As stated earlier, though, none of the three quarterbacks are QB1 material.

Broncos | Consistency key for Denver QBs

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 11:27:38 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez still holds the starting spot for now, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch assume the No. 2 and No. 3 positions, respectively. Kubiak did add that he's looking for the most consistent quarterback to be the starter.

Fantasy Tip: This drum has been beaten all offseason, but none of the Broncos' quarterbacks are reliable fantasy options this year. Sanchez is probably more reliable, but he's only worth a bye-week replacement start if he does start for Denver.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez performing well

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 17:47:21 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez has thrown only one interception in his last six practices after throwing an interception in the first offseason workouts. He had several connections with WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders during practice Tuesday, June 7.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez appears to be the leading candidate for the starting quarterback job but will have to earn it. Sanchez will only be a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues is he wins the starting job.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez works with starters

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 11:51:16 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez worked with the first-team offense during practice Tuesday, June 7, and had a good day. QB Trevor Siemian worked with the second-team offense, while QB Paxton Lynch worked with the third team.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez appears to be the leading candidate for the starting job at this point, but he will have to compete with Siemian and Lynch during training camp. Sanchez has had some success in the past but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas not worried about QB

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 10:28:45 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is not worried about the team's uncertainty at the quarterback position this offseason. "Oh we're not worried," Thomas said. "We still got time. These guys are going to be fine. Mark Sanchez has won playoff games. I can't say much about (the experience of) Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian, but they've been great so far. So we'll be fine. We got playmakers around them and coaches will put them in the right situation, and of course we've still got our great defense."

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos have plenty of weapons in the passing game and on the ground, but whoever wins this competition -- it'll most likely be Sanchez -- can't be safely considered anything more than a midrange fantasy backup. Lynch's value lies in keeper/dynasty formats for now.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez tests thumb in OTAs

Tue, 31 May 2016 19:55:41 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez (thumb) went through a full workload in team and seven-on-seven periods Tuesday, May 31, during organized team activities (OTAs). "We'll get eight or nine (days) of good work with him under center," head coach Gary Kubiak said. Sanchez, QB Trevor Siemian and QB Paxton Lynch each split the first-team snaps three ways.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is trying to fend off the first-round draft pick Lynch and Siemian for the starting quarterback job in Denver. Sanchez obviously has the most experience and would be a decent No. 2 QB in fantasy with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders at his disposal.

Broncos | Denver quarterbacks playing evenly

Tue, 31 May 2016 11:59:37 -0700

Denver Broncos QBs Mark Sanchez, Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian have been dividing repetitions down the middle, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Kubiak said it's an unusual situation, but that all three are good players.

Fantasy Tip: This quarterback battle really could come down to the final preseason game. Sanchez is probably the favorite for now considering his experience, but none of the three should be considered starting caliber in fantasy leagues.

Broncos | Denver QB competition open

Thu, 26 May 2016 12:43:06 -0700

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday, May 25, that competition is open at quarterback in organized team activities. However, QB Mark Sanchez's experience gives him the clear edge over QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch despite not having started a season opener since 2012. Sanchez must perform in training camp to hold the other two young QBs off. If he wins the job, Sanchez must limit turnovers during the season to keep the job.

Fantasy Tip: Just like they did in their 2015 Super Bowl run, the Broncos are expected to lean on a strong defense and the run game to succeed. Sanchez is expected to start and take on a game-manager role, which limits his fantasy upside despite a strong receiving corps at his disposal. The fact that his leash will be short and that he's struggled with consistency since early in his career makes him a midrange fantasy backup, at best.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez participating in drills

Tue, 24 May 2016 10:23:46 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez (thumb) is doing just about everything the other quarterbacks are doing in organized team activities Tuesday, May 24. Sanchez isn't taking snaps under center, however.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is slightly limited in OTAs, but the only thing that really matters is that he should be a full go for training camp this summer. He's in position to win the starting quarterback job unless Paxton Lynch really puts on a clinic and unexpectedly forces Denver's hand. Sanchez is more of a game manager and won't be asked to push the ball downfield too often, limiting his fantasy ceiling to that of a midrange backup.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez hopeful for OTAs

Wed, 18 May 2016 12:52:42 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez (thumb) is hopeful he'll be able to participate when organized team activities begin next week. Sanchez is currently recovering from surgery on his left thumb and he is encouraged by the progress of the recovery.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a serious injury, to be sure, and it's not even his throwing thumb. Sanchez should return to full strength and full participation in the not-too-distant future, but he still won't be in starting fantasy quarterback territory.
