It really doesn't matter what team Mark Sanchez signs with, he is a fantasy football dud. Even if you draft him as a backup in your 2014 draft, you will be wasting a pick. Are you ready to find out why I am telling you to avoid Sanchez at all costs?
Here are five reasons why fantasy football players should avoid Mark Sanchez in their 2014 draft.
Sanchez has reportedly drawn interest from the St. Louis Rams, but this means that he will be viewed as an insurance policy for Sam Bradford. After Bradford suffered an ACL injury that forced him to miss most of the season in 2013, the Rams struggled to find consistency at the quarterback position. Sanchez would only be signed to most teams for a backup role. Backups do not score you fantasy football points.
Between butt fumbles and interceptions, Sanchez is a turnover machine. From 2009-12, the former quarterback for the New York Jets threw 69 interceptions.
Touchdowns get you points in fantasy football. Mark Sanchez has not thrown many touchdowns in his career, so why would you draft him? Sanchez has three seasons in which he has thrown 17 or fewer touchdown passes.
Even if Sanchez was able to find a team to start for, he would need time to build a rapport with his new receivers. Depending on what team he finds himself on, he could have a lack of weapons that would cause him to struggle throughout the season.
In his rookie season, Sanchez averaged 162.9 passing yards per game. In his final season with the Jets, Sanchez averaged 192.2 passing yards per game. How can he find any success for your fantasy football team with numbers this low?
