Fantasy football waiver wire, Week 11: Mark Sanchez redeems himself

Maybe the problem for the New York Jets isn't the quarterback, but rather their inability to develop young quarterbacks and surround them with talent.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez redeemed himself under the bright lights of Monday Night Football with a strong performance against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10. Sanchez was 20-of-37 passing for 332 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He did fumble twice but recovered both. He was only sacked once.

Sanchez is clearly flourishing in Chip Kelly's system and has always performed much better in an uptempo offense. As long as he continues to limit the mistakes he is a good fit for what Kelly wants to do. Kelly loves to go uptempo and Sanchez can run everything he wants to run.

Fantasy impact: Sanchez silenced his doubters with a quality performance against the Panthers. He looked comfortable behind the Eagles' offensive line and in clear command of their offense. Not just a viable streaming option, Sanchez could be a good fantasy replacement for some under-performing quarterbacks like Andy Dalton.

Sanchez's numbers might not always be this good, but under Kelly he should continue to play well. The Eagles are loaded with talent at skill positions and Sanchez is finally showing what he can do in a good system. Sanchez is an intriguing option across all fantasy formats.
