Cowboys planning on giving veteran QB Mark Sanchez majority of snaps at position Sunday at Eagles, source said.

Another report said that Darren McFadden is expected to see more work than Ezekiel Elliott.

Fantasy Impact:

Owners should steer clear of the Dallas starters this week.

Cowboys Dez Bryant, Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott all active for MNF

Fantasy Impact:

This was fully expected all day despite the Cowboys clinching the top seed and a first round bye leaving this a meaningless game in Week 16. Dallas HC Jason Garrett said players would get a normal workload tonight against the Lions. That could perhaps change should the game get out of hand, but for now Bryant, Prescott and Elliott are solid starts.

No decision yet on Cowboys QB Tony Romo going on IR

Monday, September 5, 2016, 3:17pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Cowboys made their signing of quarterback Mark Sanchez official on Sunday about 24 hours after they initially announced that they’d be signing the former Jet, Eagle and Bronco to their 53-man roster.

They waived Jameill Showers to make room for Sanchez on the roster, which some might have interpreted as a decision to keep Tony Romo on the 53-man roster while he recovers from the broken bone in his back that’s expected to keep him out for much if not all of the first half of the season.

On Monday, coach Jason Garrett said that no such decision has been made about Romo’s status and that it will come after more tests in the next couple of days.

“We’re going to continue to gather information here in the next couple days on Tony and just see what his status is,” Garrett said, via the team’s website. “Currently he’s on the 53-man roster. We’ll get some more information here over the next 48 hours and make a determination as to what his status will be going forward.”

Cowboys sign QB Mark Sanchez

Saturday, September 3, 2016, 6:37pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Mark Sanchez will eventually be the Dallas Cowboys' backup to Dak Prescott while Tony Romo is out with a compression fracture in his back.

Sanchez agreed to a one-year deal, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter, a few days after the Denver Broncos attempted to trade him to the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact:

The Cowboys felt like they had to do something behind Prescott, who will become just the fourth rookie in franchise history to start a season opener, the story said.

Broncos Beat: QB Paxton Lynch won't wait long to play QB

Tuesday, August 30, 2016, 7:20pm

Denver Post - [Full Article]

The Broncos used a first-round draft pick on quarterback Paxton Lynch, then told him to wait. They put Trevor Siemian and Mark Sanchez through a ringer to decide on a starting quarterback. But the competition will not stop when the season starts.

Lynch is on a fast track, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday. And Denver is pressing the 22-year-old rookie from Memphis as much as he can be pushed.

“As fast as we can get it,” Kubiak said. “You never know what’s going to happen.”

Lynch will likely play the first snap to last Thursday in the Broncos’ final preseason game, at Arizona against the Cardinals. Siemian, who will start when the season opens Sept. 8 against the Carolina Panthers, will not play. If there’s a moment when Lynch can’t go Thursday, Sanchez would be his backup, Kubiak said.

Fantasy Impact:

The author senses the team is in a hurry to get Lynch up to speed, and rushing toward their future. Kubiak says he wants to seem consistent improvement from Lynch. Another issue is getting too deep in the gun, due to his height. The story added the team is impressed with his internal clock.

Broncos QB Mark Sanchez awaits fate

Tuesday, August 30, 2016, 5:48pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Denver Broncos quarterback Mark Sanchez said Tuesday that he’d like to stay with the Broncos even though he did not win the team’s starting job and intends to keep working as if he will be with the team, at least until he is told he is not.

Coach Gary Kubiak formally named Trevor Siemian the Broncos’ starting quarterback Monday and now has to decide who the team’s No. 2 quarterback will be -- rookie Paxton Lynch or Sanchez. That leaves Sanchez, who did not play in this past Saturday’s preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams and will not play Thursday night in Arizona unless Lynch needs to come out of the preseason finale for some reason, with an uncertain future after he had arrived in Denver calling his place with the Broncos "an opportunity of a lifetime."

Fantasy Impact:

Needless to say, Sanchez's fate is in limbo, the story said. There have been reports the team is offering him up in trade talks, specifically to the Cowboys. He's an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

Broncos Beat: QB Mark Sanchez's future with team could be in jeopardy

Tuesday, August 23, 2016, 8:59am

ESPN - [Full Article]

If Trevor Siemian holds serve and is named the regular-season starter and if, after Saturday's game, the Broncos think they've seen enough from Paxton Lynch to make him the No. 2 quarterback, it's unclear what it would mean for Mark Sanchez. If he was the No. 3 and remained on the roster he would be the team's highest paid quarterback and a game-day inactive.

Fantasy Impact:

Sanchez is the highest paid of the three, counting $4.5 million against the cap. If the Broncos were to decide to release Sanchez because they believe Lynch could be the team's backup, the Broncos would take a $1 million dead money hit against their salary cap and would have to pay the $1 million that is fully guaranteed in Sanchez's contract. If the Broncos decide on a Siemian-Lynch depth chart, they could also try to trade the 29-year-old Sanchez. He is set to be an unrestricted free agent at season's end, so teams would only be taking on the last year of his current contract.

Kubiak: Paxton Lynch 'always been in the mix' for QB job

Sunday, August 21, 2016, 7:25pm

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

Conventional wisdom said all along that the Broncos starting quarterback job would come down to whoever made the fewest mistakes between Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian. Sanchez was the heavy favorite before the preseason, but two weeks in Siemian has probably pulled ahead, especially after some costly mistakes from Sanchez Saturday night.

Better not rule out rookie Paxton Lynch. Gary Kubiak confirmed as much Sunday, telling reporters Lynch has "always been in the mix" even though he's inherently behind because he's a rookie.

"He's always been in the mix," Kubiak said. "I just told you guys that he's behind the other two from a knowledge standpoint, but we've been out there competing every day. Everybody is in competition to play."

Fantasy Impact:

In his immediate postgame interview on television, Kubiak only referenced "two" different quarterbacks, appearing to indicate the starting gig would come down to Siemian and Sanchez. But once he got in front of the podium, Kubiak continued to reference three different players and said the guy who is best for the team will start at quarterback, the story said.

Broncos QB Mark Sanchez worries mistakes cost him job

Sunday, August 21, 2016, 9:45am

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Broncos quarterback Mark Sanchez lost two fumbles in Saturday night’s preseason game against the 49ers, and he worries that those two mistakes could cost him the starting job.

“It’s difficult playing like crap on two plays and ruining an opportunity. That’s difficult,” Sanchez said after the game.

Aside from those two fumbles, Sanchez didn’t play badly, completing 10 of 17 passes for 120 yards, with no interceptions.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story said, Trevor Siemian, who started at quarterback, didn’t have a great game, completing 10 of 14 passes for 75 yards, with no touchdowns and a pick-six. Siemian’s struggles may be good news for Sanchez, but it’s a bad sign for the Broncos that no one is emerging as the clear starter in Denver.
