Week 5 - Our bubble QB2 followed up his impressive week 3, with a week 4 where he threw for 103 yards, 0 TD and 1 pick. Hopefully you have a better option than Sanchez as your backup QB at this point, his inconsistency could even lead to a Tebow appearence or two down the line.
Week 4 - Mark Sanchez remains a bubble QB2, after a week which saw him throw for 306 yards in an overtime win against the Miami Dolphins, but just 1 TD/ 2 INT’s. Sanchez is not consistent enough to be recommended outside of deeper formats, and against the 49ers defense in week 4, he should be on the bench in most leagues.
Week 2 – Sorry Mark Sanchez fans (all 10 of you) we aren’t ready to dub him a top 10 QB in fantasy football quite yet. Sanchez had a nice game vs the Buffalo Bills, but in week 2 he will be facing a tougher Pittsburgh Steelers defense, who just lost a tough game in Denver. Expect Pittsburgh to come out with a tenacity in week 2, and Sanchez is a low QB2 for this matchup. If he ends up having another decent game, you will see Mark jump in the rankings heading into week 3.
Week 1 – Mark Sanchez is still the New York Jets starter, for now, as he leads his team against the Bills in a week 1 matchup. He should not be considered a viable start for week 1, even in 2 QB formats, and should be benched or left to waivers in the majority of formats.
Mark Sanchez is probably not looking forward to the 2012 season, no matter what comments he makes. The circus that follows Tim Tebow is coming to town, and Sanchez will have to prove that he belongs under center. Although we are projecting a career year for Sanchez in 2012 as he fights to hold on to his job, he should still be viewed as a low #2 or backup QB option come draft day.
