Summary

If you're not an Eagles fan, Mark Sanchez' renaissance may have flown below your radar. Yet the former New York Jet started half the 2014 season for Chip Kelly and displayed remarkable growth in all facets of his game. He completed 64% of his passes (vs. 55% as a Jet), had a 4.5% TD rate, and added a full yard to his per-attempt average (7.8 YPA). The Eagles remained a top 5 offense in Sanchez' stead, but rather than commit to him as the 2015 starter, the team traded for Sam Bradford. Bradford will be the starter as long as he stays healthy, but health is hardly a foregone conclusion. Sanchez can be a solid-albeit-unspectacular fantasy starter if he gets another shot. (May 16)

Eagles | Mark Sanchez could be best option for PHI (Sat May 16, 07:26 PM) - 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.

Our View: Sanchez is a decent starter in this offense, and he may prove to be a better (healthier) option than Sam Bradford. We like Bradford's accuracy and anticipation as a passer, but his pro career has been plagued by numerous severe injuries. We'll see how this shakes out in training camp. The Eagles starting quarterback is fantasy relevant, but at varying levels depending on who wins the job.
