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.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez underwent surgery

Mon, 16 May 2016 12:21:15 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez (thumb) injured his left thumb in the weight room Thursday, May 12, and underwent surgery Saturday, May 14. He will miss a few organized team activities, according to Mike Kils of 9news.com.

Fantasy Tip: It still sounds like Sanchez will be ready to participate in training camp and should be fine for the regular season. He will probably start over rookie Paxton Lynch, at least to start the season, but Sanchez still isn't worth drafting as a weekly starting fantasy quarterback.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez staying focused

Mon, 02 May 2016 13:57:19 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez still views himself as a starting quarterback and believes Denver drafting QB Paxton Lynch was affirmation of his starting status. "Absolutely, that's the message I've received," Sanchez said. "I'm thrilled with the opportunity."

Sanchez hasn't let Lynch or any potential trades change his focus. "I just kind of learned with time, who knows what's going to happen and who cares? What are you supposed to do? Meet your teammates, develop a relationship with them, learn the playbook, get involved in the community, that's it, those three things."

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is certainly approaching this situation with maturity. He's probably the safer option as a starting quarterback for Denver, at least in 2016. Lynch appears to be the quarterback of the future. Neither Sanchez nor Lynch should be regarded as a starting fantasy quarterback this season, though.

Broncos | No Brian Hoyer for Denver

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 16:11:11 -0700

Free-agent QB Brian Hoyer (Texans) is not a part of the Denver Broncos' immediate plans. The Broncos informed Hoyer Friday, April 29, that they will not be signing him. Denver will stick with three quarterbacks for now because general manager John Elway wants QBs Mark Sanchez, Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian to receive as many repetitions as possible.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez does have the edge right now and is the safer starting option for the Broncos in 2016. It's important for Lynch to become acclimated to Denver's offense and the feel of the NFL this year. Lynch is likely the future of Denver's quarterback position, but his growth process will take some time. Sanchez is not a QB1 and should only be started as a bye-week replacement in good matchups.

Broncos | Paxton Lynch to compete for starting gig

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 20:48:11 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch will compete with QB Mark Sanchez and QB Trevor Siemian for the starting job, according to executive vice president John Elway.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez should be considered the frontrunner to open the year as the starter, but he would be a lower-end QB2. Lynch has intriguing potential in dynasty and keeper leagues, but he may need at least a year to develop.

Broncos | Denver content with QB options?

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 12:02:39 -0700

The Denver Broncos seem fine with going to training camp with QB Mark Sanchez, QB Trevor Siemian and a rookie quarterback, in the opinion of The Denver Post's Cameron Wolfe.

Fantasy Tip: Don't rule out the Broncos trading for Colin Kaepernick during the draft, but that scenario is appearing less and less likely. A rookie quarterback could come in and compete for the job in training camp, but Denver would likely prefer to groom him for down the road. That means Sanchez is the projected starter. He has a lot to work with in this offense, but he'll probably remain in more of a game-manager role. Sanchez is a midrange fantasy backup if he's starting.

Broncos | Trevor Siemian could compete for job

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 09:12:15 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian could compete with QB Mark Sanchez for the starting quarterback role this year, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. "Absolutely, Trevor's a young player who made up a lot of ground last year, we think a lot of him," Kubiak said. " ... Trevor will know what he's doing when he walks in here (April 18). It will be up to him ... I know our football team has a lot of confidence in him, I know I do. He's got the talent to do it, we'll see." However, the Broncos are expected to take a long look at quarterbacks in this year's draft.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos are fully expected to draft a quarterback of the future, so while Siemian could push Sanchez in training camp this fall, it's unlikely he's on the field as the starting quarterback unless an injury occurs. Siemian shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar.

Broncos | Competition doesn't worry Mark Sanchez

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 12:58:23 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez isn't worried about the possible competition from San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick if Kaepernick is traded to the Broncos. Sanchez is focused on making the most of his opportunity and competing for the starting quarterback position. "I will be friendly and professional with whoever is there. But I want this bad. Really bad," Sanchez said. "I want what [Denver] experienced last year."

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos are still at an impasse with a Kaepernick trade, so Sanchez looks to be the favorite to start for now. If a trade falls through, Denver will likely draft a quarterback. They may even draft one if they trade for Kaepernick. The bottom line is that Mark Sanchez is not in starting fantasy quarterback territory.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez working with receivers

Mon, 04 Apr 2016 13:44:35 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez is holding his annual passing camp Monday, April 4, Tuesday, April 5, and Wednesday, April 6, in California. He will work with Denver wide receivers, tight ends, running backs and QB Trevor Siemian.

Fantasy Tip: It's still unclear if Sanchez will be the starter for the Broncos in 2016, but he's certainly playing the part for now. Whether he starts or not, he's comfortably in backup fantasy quarterback territory.

Broncos | Denver not rushing QB decision

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 10:03:45 -0700

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said the Broncos are not in a rush to add another quarterback this offseason. Kubiak said QB Mark Sanchez will learn the team's offense quickly because of his familiarity with the verbiage during his days in college, and Sanchez has been at the team facility offseason since he signed. Free-agent QBs Robert Griffin III (Redskins) and Ryan Fitzpatrick (Jets) are options, as well as trading for San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer or Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon.

Fantasy Tip: Denver will likely bring in another QB either through the draft, in free agency or via trade to compete with Sanchez for the starting role. At this point, whoever is under center in Week 1 for the Broncos will surely be more of a fantasy backup.

Broncos | Gary Kubiak likes Mark Sanchez

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 09:19:24 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez could flourish in Denver's system, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. "One of the things we feel really good about is we feel good about getting Mark," Kubiak said. "Mark's got 60 starts in this league -- he's started two AFC Championship (games) ... we feel really good about him, how he fits. He's got some background in what we do."

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos plan on bringing in another QB to compete with Sanchez this year, so he's not guaranteed any starting job just yet. But if he does end up being the starter, he may fit Denver's scheme on offense and be underrated in fantasy. However, you shouldn't think of him as anything more than a midrange fantasy backup in 2016.

Broncos | Quarterback competition for Denver

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 12:03:17 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez will not be handed the starting job, according to general manager John Elway. Elway said the Broncos will bring someone in to compete. "Everything is out there. There are still a lot of guys [available]," Elway said. "You never know what's going to fall out of the tree. We are not in any rush."

Fantasy Tip: Colin Kaepernick, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Robert Griffin III are regarded as the top options available at quarterback right now. The Broncos have discussed a Kaepernick trade with the San Francisco 49ers, but nothing has come to fruition yet. If Sanchez does start, he still won't be worth starting in fantasy leagues.

Broncos | Denver could take QB early in draft

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 13:13:59 -0700

The Denver Broncos will give serious consideration to selecting a quarterback in the first two days of the NFL Draft next month. QB Mark Sanchez was just traded for last week and expects to compete for the starting job in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: If Denver selected a quarterback in the draft he could sit a year behind Sanchez before given a realistic shot at the job in 2017. Sanchez has had his moments in the NFL but hasn't done much recently, and he can't be expected to serve as anything more than a fantasy backup if he wins the job.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez prepared to compete

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 11:32:36 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez is compared to compete for a starting role this season. "Get in here and compete your butt off for a starting role. That's my goal to start this coming fall and be ready to play and help this team win," Sanchez said.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos aren't done adding to the QB position, but Sanchez will have an opportunity to compete for a starting job in training camp. Sanchez has had his moments with the New York Jets and Philadelphia Eagles, but he's better as a capable backup. In fantasy circles, he'd be a midrange fantasy backup if he won the job in 2016.

Broncos | Denver not done at QB

Fri, 11 Mar 2016 11:43:01 -0800

The Denver Broncos plan on bringing in another quarterback to compete for the starting job even after trading for QB Mark Sanchez Friday, March 11.

Fantasy Tip: While Sanchez provides a nice insurance policy, Denver won't be satisfied with him as their outright starter. You should take the same stance in fantasy leagues. Sanchez is nothing better than a weak backup option.

Broncos | Mark Sanchez to be backup?

Fri, 11 Mar 2016 10:58:18 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez is likely to serve as the backup quarterback this year, in the opinion of The Denver Post's Cameron Wolfe. Sanchez had four touchdowns and four interceptions in six games in 2015, and he has 86 TDs and 84 picks in his career.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez has plenty of experience but hasn't shown much production in his starting chances since his time with the New York Jets. He's likely to compete for a starting job, but fantasy owners can consider him nothing more than a weak backup.

Fri, 11 Mar 2016 10:33:34 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez was acquired by the Denver Broncos Friday, March 11, in exchange for a conditional 2017 draft pick.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez joins the defending champs as the starter on the depth chart. However, the team is likely to seek a better option to start. Keep an eye on the situation.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez could be cut

Sun, 21 Feb 2016 10:52:18 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez is expected to be released in order to save the Eagles $3.5 million in salary cap space, in the opinion of CSNPhilly.com's Reuben Frank and Dave Zangaro.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez has held his own as a backup quarterback in Philadelphia, but the Eagles may very well look to find a cheaper option through free agency or the draft. Sanchez should stay off of the fantasy radar next season, too.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez starting Thursday

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 05:41:37 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez will start Thursday, Nov. 26, in place of QB Sam Bradford (concussion, shoulder).

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) doesn't exude the confidence you'd like in a QB1 on FantasyScore against the Detroit Lions.

Eagles | Sam Bradford had memory loss

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 11:35:39 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) had "some memory loss" after sustaining a concussion in Week 10, and he also said his separated left shoulder could keep him out again versus the Detroit Lions in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 26. "(The decision depends on) how it progresses from here to game time," Bradford said, "and whether myself and the coaches feel comfortable with me out there playing. It feels better today than it did yesterday. If it continues to progress, I'd like to be out there." Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Bradford looked good in practice Monday, Nov. 23. QB Mark Sanchez will start again if Bradford isn't ready.

Fantasy Tip: The Lions are a top-10 fantasy matchup for quarterbacks, but Bradford ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) would be a sizable risk this week. Sanchez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) didn't look good in his start last week and wouldn't be a popular daily addition if he makes a second straight start.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez may start again

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 10:51:55 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez appears to be the leading candidate to start in the Week 12 game against the Detroit Lions Thursday, Nov. 26, according to OT Lane Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the practice participation this week since Sam Bradford is working his way back from a concussion and may push Sanchez back to the bench. Sanchez struggled in his start in Week 11 and would not be a great fantasy option if he starts.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez could keep starting job

Sun, 22 Nov 2015 08:15:58 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez, who will start Week 11's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is also expected to start Week 12's game versus the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day. With strong performances against both clubs, he could continue to serve as the starting quarterback even after QB Sam Bradford (concussion, shoulder) is deemed healthy enough to resume playing.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) moves the Eagles' offense at a faster pace than Bradford ($6,700, 13.4% of cap), although his penchant to turn the ball over will keep him from being a reliable option under center in FantasyScore. Entering Week 11's game, Sanchez has 82 touchdown passes and 81 interceptions in his career.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez draws the start

Fri, 20 Nov 2015 09:32:16 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez will start Sunday, Nov. 22, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) out.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has a decent matchup, but the quarterback position is so vital on FantasyScore that it's hard to trust Sanchez in relief.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez favors faster pace

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 09:12:19 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez ran the offense at a faster pace last year in head coach Chip Kelly's system, and the expectation is that the tempo of the offense will pick up if Sanchez has to start in place of QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "Mark's probably a little bit more conscious of the tempo," OT Lane Johnson said. "He may go at a little bit faster pace than what Sam is, so other than that, probably just the tempo may be a little bit faster." Kelly and offensive coordinator have said that the offense won't change much this week if Sanchez has to start.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) didn't look too good running the offense in place of Bradford last weekend. A faster offensive pace could mean more chances for all of Philly's weapons, though, including Bradford, and the Bucs are a top-10 matchup in fantasy for quarterbacks. Sanchez certainly is worth a peek as a sleeper pick on FantasyScore.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez expected to start this weekend

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 10:46:24 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez is expected to start in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in place of QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion).

Fantasy Tip: The Bucs are a nice matchup for opposing quarterbacks, but Sanchez won't be anything more than a deep sleeper pick on FantasyScore as a way to save money on the position. He looked very average after replacing Bradford in Week 10 and threw an interception in the end zone.

Eagles | Sam Bradford out for preseason opener

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 09:10:37 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will not play in the preseason opener Sunday, Aug. 16, while QB Mark Sanchez will start. Bradford is expected to play in the second preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens. "That's my decision," Kelly said. "He really wants to play. I don't think he's really happy with my decision. I just felt he's been out here for two weeks, done a really nice job. He'll get his first work against the Ravens when we get a chance to train with them for a couple days before we play, and he'll play in the Ravens game."

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is a QB2 with some upside in this offense if he's the starter.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez trailing in QB competition

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 18:17:46 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez has fallen far behind QB Sam Bradford in the competition for the starting job. Bradford has spent nearly 90% of the time with the first-team offense, while Sanchez has received the other 10% of the reps since training camp started.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez did perform adequately after replacing Nick Foles last season, and he earned himself a two-year contract before the Eagles traded Foles to the St. Louis Rams for Bradford. Even if Sanchez doesn't open the season as the starter, he could see starts later in the season if Bradford suffers an injury, or if the Eagles simply want to make a change.

Eagles | Sam Bradford taking first-team reps

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 09:44:42 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford is taking the first-team repetitions at quarterback during training camp ahead of QB Mark Sanchez. Sanchez is Bradford's primary competition after returning from his second anterior cruciate ligament injury of his career. Bradford has made a strong early impression on head coach Chip Kelly.

Fantasy Tip: There is obviously a lot of risk in selecting Bradford for your fantasy football team this fall as a backup, but in this high-powered offense, he has plenty of upside as a strong QB2 option if he can stay on the field.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez holding workouts

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez is likely to take a backseat once Sam Bradford returns to health, but he's not going to make it easy. Sanchez doesn't have as much upside as Bradford, but he'd be a midrange QB2 if he is able to nab the starting job.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez ready for QB battle

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 22:06:30 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez said Tuesday, June 9, he is looking at the quarterback battle as an open competition. He has already worked with many of the young receivers and tight ends before, in games. "We're all going to individually compete," Sanchez said, "and the best guy is going to play."

Fantasy Tip: It remains uncertain whether Sanchez or Bradford will win the starting job, but even if Sanchez does not win he will have to be ready based on Bradford’s injury history.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (knee) is participating in competitive drills as he and QB Mark Sanchez share first-team repetitions during organized team activities Tuesday, June 2. Bradford is rehabilitating from a torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered last season.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is expected to start as long as he's fully healthy, but Sanchez isn't far behind. Whoever starts should be regarded as a QB2 in what should once again be a high-flying offense under head coach Chip Kelly.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez wants to start

Sat, 30 May 2015 10:27:53 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez is acting like he's the starter this offseason, despite the acquisition of QB Sam Bradford from the St. Louis Rams. "That's the only way I know how to play," Sanchez said. "Everybody wants to be the starter and I'm no different." Sanchez added that he's feeling better this offseason than he's ever felt, referring to his surgically repaired shoulder, and said he can only get better.

Fantasy Tip: Head coach Chip Kelly has already said there's an open competition at quarterback, so Sanchez will have his opportunities to prove himself as a starter. He's likely facing somewhat of an uphill battle against Bradford, however. It would be hard to imagine Bradford not starting unless Sanchez really outshines him or Bradford accrues another injury. Neither should be considered a starting fantasy quarterback for now.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez could be best option for PHI

Sat, 16 May 2015 16:26:04 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez could be the team's best bet for a starting quarterback. Sanchez went 4-4 after taking over as the starter last season, and finished the campaign with a career best 64.1 completion percentage. Sanchez has played all but one game during his six-year career, showing health that's lacked by the Eagles' other options.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez will compete primarily with Sam Bradford for the starting job, but the fact that Sanchez was re-signed to a two-year $9 million contract indicates he's strongly in the hunt for the position. Even if Bradford wins the job, his extensive injury history certainly could leave a door open for Sanchez to emerge at some point during the 2015 season.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez has chance to start in PHI

Wed, 06 May 2015 12:34:33 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez believes he can still start this year. "Really just talking with [head] coach [Chip] Kelly and knowing I'm coming with the opportunity to compete for the starting job, that was important to me," Sanchez said.

Fantasy Tip: Sam Bradford is still the predominant favorite to start for the Eagles as long as he's healthy. In eight starts last season, Sanchez threw 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions -- not good enough to draft as a starting quarterback. Both Bradford and Sanchez should be considered backups and/or bye-week replacements.

Sat, 07 Mar 2015 18:31:56 -0800

Free-agent QB Mark Sanchez and the Philadelphia Eagles have a strong mutual interest in reuniting next season, according to a person close to the situation.

Fantasy Tip: If Sanchez does return, he would presumably be the backup to Nick Foles. In that scenario, Sanchez would only have fantasy value if Foles were to suffer an injury as he did last season.

Browns | Cleveland open to Mark Sanchez

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 13:44:34 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Mark Sanchez could be a candidate to sign with the Cleveland Browns in free agency. Browns head coach Mike Pettine said he's "open" to working with Sanchez after the two worked together with the New York Jets.

Fantasy Tip: It's anyone's guess as to who the Browns will go with under center in 2015. Brian Hoyer could re-sign, and Johnny Manziel is currently in rehab for personal reasons. If Sanchez were to come aboard, he'd likely be in competition for the job with others, including Manziel. Sanchez's situation was much better in Philly, so his fantasy football value would be limited to a weak QB2, most likely, in Cleveland.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez missed a few opportunities to connect on deep balls in a 27-24 loss against the Washington Redskins Saturday, Dec. 20, WR Jeremy Maclin said after the game.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez's longest completion of the night went for 26 yards, and if he did miss some big plays, he still managed to finish with 374 yards and two scores. He should remain a solid value pick at the quarterback position at FantasyScore when the Eagles face the Giants in Week 17.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez thriving on play action

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 11:14:07 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez has thrown six interceptions this year, but all of them haven't been game-changing turnovers. In Week 12 against the Tennessee Titans, Sanchez thrived on play-action passes as the team re-established the running game. Sanchez was 12-for-14 for 124 yards and a touchdown off play-action passes. Sanchez, in general, has been much better on play-action passes all year, which fits well with the team's offense. He also hasn't thrown an interception this year outside the pocket, and he's replacing QB Nick Foles, who struggled outside the pocket.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez continues to thrive in this offense, and his Week 13 matchup is a good one against the Dallas Cowboys, who have struggled against quarterbacks in the last four weeks. Sanchez will cost you $6,800 at FantasyScore. Consider him if you don't want to spend top dollar on your QB.

Eagles | Jordan Matthews has chemistry with new QB

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 09:09:04 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews, who had seven catches for 138 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 10 win with QB Mark Sanchez starting, developed some nice chemistry with Sanchez in training camp this year. Sanchez may have completed more passes to Mathews than any other player in camp while working with the second-team offense. Sanchez immediately found Matthews for a touchdown when he relieved QB Nick Foles in Week 8 because of an injury, too.

"Of course we had something going on in camp," Matthews said. "We kind of had to. We were both on the second team at the time. So, I took the majority of the reps with him. After practice, I made sure I got extra reps with him. I knew that if I wanted to break into the lineup, I had to look good with the second-team first. That was definitely a point of emphasis for me back then. We continued to have a great relationship. I started building one with Nick (Foles), but now it's Mark's opportunity, so I have to go out and make plays for him."

Fantasy Tip: So, Matthews has five touchdowns on the season, and Sanchez has tossed him three of those. There is definitely some strong chemistry between these two, and it shouldn't go unnoticed. Matthews could be peaking at the right time for his fantasy owners as we near the playoffs. He could be a good candidate to buy right now.

Eagles | Mark Sanchez excels on Monday night

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 08:58:23 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez threw for 332 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 10 win over the Carolina Panthers Monday, Nov. 10, in his first start since Dec. 30, 2012. WR Jordan Matthews had 138 receiving yards and two touchdowns, and RB Darren Sproles had an eight-yard touchdown run and a 65-yard punt return for a touchdown.

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez didn't look the the quarterback that we all came to know when he was with the New York Jets. Perhaps he can excel in the long run in Chip Kelly's system. Regardless, he should be a popular waiver wire acquisition this week, and he could put up a similar performance in Week 11 against the Green Bay Packers.

Eagles | Chip Kelly confident in Mark Sanchez

Mon, 03 Nov 2014 14:26:31 -0800

Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez has all of the tools the team is looking for in a quarterback, according to head coach Chip Kelly. "He obviously has a big-time arm, he's got an NFL arm, he's got NFL feet, he's really, really smart, he's sharp, great work ethic, very athletic. He had all the things we're looking for in a quarterback," Kelly said. "He's a hell of a quarterback and we're excited that we got him."

Fantasy Tip: Sanchez likely will be the team's starting quarterback for most of the remaining games. Sanchez may not be a starting option each week for fantasy owners, but he could be a starting option depending on the match up.
