The New York Jets are expected to make a change at starting quarterback for their Week 16 matchup against the San Diego Chargers, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. The Jets are coming off an ugly loss to the Tennessee Titans on Monday night, in which Mark Sanchez threw a season-high four interceptions and had a costly fumble in Titans' territory with less than a minute remaining in the game.
Sanchez has struggled throughout the season, prompting some to wonder why a switch hasn't come sooner. On the year, he has thrown 17 interceptions to just 13 touchdowns. He has completed less than 50 percent of his passes seven times.
Fantasy Impact: Expect Tim Tebow to start under center, though Greg McElroy could also get his shot. At this point, the Jets have to be desperate for anything to give them a spark. Don't be surprised if Rex Ryan gives a quick hook if whoever is under center struggles.
Unfortunately, there is no defending Sanchez, Tebow or McElroy as fantasy options. There are few formats where any of the three should even be on radar. In standard one-QB formats, leave them buried on waivers, despite a seemingly good matchup this week.
