Mark Sanchez injury update: Fantasy value unchanged despite recent struggles

Kevin Casey

Mark Sanchez will start for the Jets against the Cardinals on Sunday despite being listed on the injury report with a back injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Mark Sanchez will start for the New York Jets on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals despite being listed on the team's injury report with back issues. He was able to participate fully in practice throughout the week.

Sanchez has struggled mightily in recent weeks, but does not appear to be in any peril of losing playing time. He passed for less than 200 yards in two straight games before putting up 301 yards against a weak New England Patriots secondary last week.

Fantasy Impact: Tim Tebow may sit out Week 13 due to a ribs injury, but he hasn't been a threat to usurp as the Jets' starting quarterback, anyway. Nor is Greg McElroy, who will serve as Sanchez' backup if Tebow is deactivated.

Sanchez is a risky fantasy option even in two-quarterbacks leagues most weeks, and especially this week against an excellent Cardinals secondary. Arizona is allowing just 204 yards passing per game this season, and have 15 interceptions to 15 touchdowns relinquished.
