The Eagles will apparently be bringing back QB Mark Sanchez, as he has inked a two year deal to stay in Philadelphia. (Source: ESPN)
Fantasy Impact: Though Sanchez played adequately last season when forced into a starter's role, most figured he'd go start for another team in 2015. Apparently, he 's okay being a well-paid backup QB, as he signed a two-year deal with $5.5 mil guaranteed, but a deal laden with incentives which can make the total value $16 mil. Nothing wrong with being a high-priced #2, especially for the Eagles, as that guy seems to always find himself on the field. Most still expect Nick Foles to be the Eagles starting QB in 2015. That is, unless Chip Kelly can swing a trade that nets him highly touted rookie QB Marcus Mariota. But either way, Sanchez looks to be somebody's backup.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez was 23 of 36 for 292 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, as the Eagles beat the Giants 34-26 in Week 17.
Fantasy Impact: Sanchez threw touchdown passes on each of the Eagles first two possessions of the game. First, he hit Jordan Matthews for a 44-yard touchdown strike, Sanchez then came right back the next drive with a one yard touchdown toss to Brent Celek. Sanchez may have played his last game in Philly, as he'll be a UFA at year's end. With Nick Foles due to be back next season, Sanchez will probably have to further his career elsewhere.
Mark Sanchez went 17 of 28 for a total of 252 passing yards on Sunday against the Cowboys. He did however have a disappointing two interceptions and no touchdowns
Fantasy Impact: This was Sanchez's first game this season that he has started for the injured Nick Foles and he has not thrown at least one touchdown. Sanchez was extremely disappointing in this huge NFC East game missing numerous wide open targets and holding onto the ball for too long causing him to be sacked four times. Both Eagles fan's and fantasy owners will be hoping that Nick Foles will be ready and able to go this coming week.
In arguably the biggest game of his career since he was a starter in the playoffs for the Jets, Mark Sanchez went 17 of 28 for 252 yards with two interceptions for the Eagles against the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. (Source: NFL.com)
Fantasy Impact: Sanchez missed several wide open throws, and held on to the ball too long at times. Getting Nick Foles back can not happen fast enough for the Eagles. Sanchez has been a decent fill in, but when put to the test in important games in his career, Sanchez has disappointed.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez was held to 96 yards passing, was sacked three times, and threw an interception, in the Eagles 24-14 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in week 14.
Fantasy Impact: Sanchez did manage to throw two touchdowns, but the passing game never got going against the Seahawks 3rd ranked pass defense. Sanchez completed only ten passes on the day, as his receivers were being blanketed all over the field. Fantasy owners should expect better things to come, as the Eagles welcome the Dallas Cowboys to Philadelphia in week 15. The Cowboys have the 23rd ranked pass defense, giving up 251.9 yards per game.
Mark Sanchez had his first taste of divisional competiton on the road and came out with 217 passing yards and a passing touchdown. He also added 28 rushing yards and a score on the ground.
Fantasy Impact: Sanchez broke out for his first score on the ground and his fourth straight game with two touchdowns. The Cowboys were a tough test with the 19th best passing defense and the division lead on the line. Sanchez used LeSean McCoy and his 156 rushing yards to stay away from mistakes. Since taking over Sanchez now has 1,187 yards and 8 total touchdowns. The Eagles are at home against the 3rd best passing defense in the Seattle Seahawks next week. The ball hawking Seahawks will be looking for bad choices by Sanchez to capitalize on.
On Sunday, against the tough Titans pass defense, Mark Sanchez had another quality game with 307 yards and one touchdown.
Fantasy Impact: This is Sanchez's third straight 300 yard game since he has taken over for Nick Foles. During pregame warmups Nick Foles looked to be throwing well but it was noticeable that he was shying away from his injured collarbone. Next week Sanchez should still get the start at quarterback in the critical turkey day matchup with the Cowboys. The Cowboys' pass defense ranks 19th in the league allowing 247.8 yards per game.
After a tough week 11 loss to the Packers, Mark Sanchez looks to rebound against the Titans. His time in New York has played a large role in his ability to look forward. (Source: 6ABC.com)
Fantasy Impact: This season for Mark Sanchez has been a return to his glory days in New York putting up 808 yards and 6 touchdowns since replacing the injured Nick Foles. Every single game that he has played in Sanchez has put up multiple touchdowns and 200 or more yards; including two 300 yard games in his starts. The Titans have allowed only two multiple touchdowns games this season and rank 9th in passing defensive. The Eagles strong running game (14th in the league) and the Titans weak rushing defense (31st in the league) will open opportunities for Sanchez.
Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez had two interceptions, two lost fumbles, and was sacked three times in the Eagles 53-20 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 11.
Fantasy Impact: Sanchez had a shaky outing, though he did manage 346 yds passing and two TDs in the contest (mostly when the score was out of hand). Look for Sanchez to rebound in Week 12, as the Eagles play host to the 2-7 Tennessee Titans, a team that ranks 21st in the league in points allowed with 24.8 points per game.
Mark Sanchez started the Week 10 win for the Philadelphia Eagles against the Carolina Panthers. He lead the Eagles with 20/37 passing for 332 yards and two touchdowns, both to rookie receiver Jordan Matthews. (Source: NFL.com)
Fantasy Impact: Sanchez looked better than Eagles fans could have hoped. With how much he clicked with his receivers, he's worth looking to add this week as the Eagles get the Packers, which very well could turn into a shootout.
Kelly said "I feel great about Mark Sanchez... Always said we need two QBs." He went on to say "I think Mark Sanchez is farther advanced in knowledge of the offense just because of past starting experience." (Source: PhiladelphiaEagles.com)
Fantasy Impact: In just under 3 quarters of play against the Texans, Sanchez completed 15 or 22 passes for 202 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also had 2 interceptions on the day with one being an under throw to Riley Cooper but the other was a perfect pass to rookie Josh Huff that Huff just let bounce up in the air and get picked off. With Foles out 6-8 Week's, Sanchez is a must add in all Fantasy Leagues.
Eagles' backup QB Mark Sanchez entered the game when starter Nick Foles left the game with an injury. He completed 15-of-22 passes for 202 yards with two touchdowns and two picks.
Fantasy Impact: The offense didn't skip a beat with Sanchez under center. The deep shots were numerous and the offense was as quick as ever. Honestly, he looked good against a tough Texans defense, and despite how poorly he played as a Jet, he has a much better supporting cast around him and has the potential to produce well with his new team against weaker defenses. He's worth a waiver claim in 12-team leagues.
