2012 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Sep-05-2012 by Chris Weeks
From a fantasy perspective, Sanchez is not a horrible quarterback. For the most part Mark's numbers are pretty consistent, with a nice 300 yard game tossed in every now and again. Of course with every good game comes a not so great performance, so playing Sanchez week to week can be risky. At the end of last season a few Jets players questioned Mark's work ethic and committment to the team. Sanchez used this along with the Tebow signing to fuel his off season training. While Tebow will take away a few snaps from Mark this season, it shouldn't be enough for fantasy owners to worry. After all, Tebow is known more for his scrambling ability than his pass game. Sanchez' numbers this season should be better than last year, yet not good enough to warrant a starting spot in most fantasy leagues. If you're looking for a solid backup with starting potential then Sanchez would be a good place to start.
Update (8/22): Sanchez has done very little in his two pre-season games this year. His lackluster performance has been partially his fault, partially the offensive line, the receiving corp ... pretty much the whole offense is in shambles. At this point it looks like this could be Mark's worst year of his short career. Drafting Sanchez is a big gamble and should only be done in big leagues.

2012 Mock Draft Results
2012 Experts Mock Draft (June)
June 6, 2012 - June 25, 2012
|18.03||DraftSharks.com - I don't like Mark Sanchez the player any more than you do, but I think fantasy owners are going a bit overboard in disregarding him. The guy finished 10th among QBs last year and 18th the year before. He ran for at least 3 TDs in every season so far. And Tim Tebow is going to steal his job? The guy the team asked to bulk up to 250 ... right before they handed Sanchez a new contract? Nuh uh. I'll gladly take the few big games here, where I can ignore the stinkers.|
2012 Experts Mock Draft (July)
July 16 - 27
|19.02||DraftSharks.com - Count me strongly against the idea that Tebow takes over for a healthy Sanchez at all this year. I wouldn't want Sanchez leading my favorite team, but I seem to be in the minority in remembering that the guy has proved he can put up sporadic big fantasy outings.|
2012 Experts Mock Draft (August)
Aug 14 - 24
|17.06||DraftSharks.com - I'm making this pick only so that I can laugh at Tony Holm in season ... or because I think the fantasy landscape seems to be misreading the Tebow situation. The Jets pumped a lot of money into Sanchez this offseason and asked Tebow to bulk up. He has shown in preseason that he still can't throw. The only way Tebow takes over as Jets starter is if Sanchez gets hurt. Sanchez, meanwhile, is good for several big games a year -- especially because he's the Jets' goal-line back.|
