Eagles QB Mark Sanchez believes he'll be able to compete for the QB1 job:
“Really just talking with Coach Kelly and knowing I’m coming with the opportunity to compete for the starting job,” Sanchez said, via CSN Philly. “That was important to me. There were some other opportunities out there, but I didn’t want to switch systems again. On a one-year deal, it’s different for maybe a defensive player then for an offensive player, especially a quarterback. You’ve got to learn a whole new language again. I started to feel real comfortable and I felt like to be honest, personally, there’s some unfinished business we left out there. I know I can play a little bit better than that. I know we can get this team in the playoffs. I think we have the talent to do that.”
We believe that it's Bradford's job to lose. Over the last two seasons, Philadelphia quarterbacks have averaged 16.7 passing game-only fantasy points. Bradford isn’t much of a runner, but he adds about 0.7 FP per game as a rusher. That adds up to 17.4 FP, or about what Eli Manning averaged as the #13 QB in 2014. The Eagles’ offense has lost their top receiver – DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin – in each of the last two seasons, but Jordan Matthews and Zach Ertz are emerging and the team added Nelson Agholor in the draft. If Bradford ends up starting for the Eagles, we wouldn’t expect anything more than high-end QB2 numbers, but this is a definite system upgrade due to the overall effectiveness of Chip Kelly’s offense.

Week 17 - Sanchez vs. NY Giants
Mark Sanchez put together a nice fantasy outing last week, throwing for 374 yards and two more TDs, but did throw a costly INT. He added 22 rushing yards but did fumble. He's now turned the ball over 13 times in eight games played this year.
The 374 yards is the most he's thrown for this season and the two TDs gave him 12 in eight games, but the turnovers continue to leave points, both real and fantasy, on the field. Reports say Sanchez will start against the Giants in Week 17. It's a nice matchup as the G-men are near the bottom of the league in allowing fantasy points to QBs. It's not out of the question Matt Barkley gets some work, especially with Sanchez entering free agency after the season. The Birds may want to get a look at Barkley. But for now, the team says Sanchez will start.
