    Free-agent QB Mark Sanchez (Cowboys) is finalizing a deal with the Chicago Bears Thursday, March 23, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Sanchez will serve as the backup to the unproven Mike Glennon, so it is possible Sanchez makes some starts. Even in that scenario, he wouldn't hold any fantasy value.

  • Posted: 9/3/2016 1:41pm ET

    Free-agent QB Mark Sanchez (Broncos) is expected to sign with the Dallas Cowboys, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Sanchez likely would be the backup to Dak Prescott if he signs with the Cowboys, but he could have a chance to start if Prescott struggles. Owners should avoid Sanchez during drafts, but he could be a waiver wire option during the season if he becomes the starter.

  • Posted: 8/29/2016 4:10pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez is not a trade option for the Dallas Cowboys if they have to accept his current contract. The Broncos have approached the Cowboys about a possible trade involving Sanchez.

    Huddle Up: Sanchez could be more of an option for the Cowboys if he is released by the Broncos. Sanchez will be a backup no matter where he plays this season and will not be a fantasy option unless he starts.

  • Posted: 8/12/2016 8:51am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez completed 10 of his 13 passes for 99 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 22-0 win over the Chicago Bears Thursday, Aug. 11.

    Huddle Up: Sanchez is in a fight for the starting quarterback job, and this performance should help his cause. With solid weapons to work with, he should be a midrange QB2 if he opens the year on center.

  • Posted: 8/9/2016 7:15pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez will start the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 11, against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: No real stunner here as the veteran Sanchez has earned the first start basically by default after none of the three top QBs has stood out so far in camp. They key for Sanchez on Thursday will be avoiding the ugly, untimely turnovers which have plagued him in his career -- and early in camp so far.

  • Posted: 8/8/2016 12:18pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez and QB Trevor Siemian are listed as co-starters on the team's first depth chart Monday, Aug. 8.

    Huddle Up: Whomever is under center for the Broncos has a lot to work with on offense. Sanchez has pretty much shown what he is, and Siemian is an unknown. Both are low-end QB2 options in fantasy, but the latter has far more upside than Sanchez.

  • Posted: 8/7/2016 12:48pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez and QB Trevor Siemian will continue to compete for the starting quarterback spot, and head coach Gary Kubiak said he hasn't even 'come close' to deciding on the starter for the preseason game against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Sanchez entered camp as the veteran front-runner, but the second-year Siemian reportedly has made gains over the last week of practices. About the only thing certain right now is that rookie first-rounder Paxton Lynch is running a distant third. Stay tuned ...

  • Posted: 8/2/2016 8:08am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez had an up-and-down day in practice Monday, Aug. 1. He completed six consecutive passes working with the first unit in seven-on-seven drills, but he also misfired on four straight during the session and he was picked off in the red zone. 'Mark threw a pick in the red zone; we can't do that,' head coach Gary Kubiak said.

    Huddle Up: Sanchez is believed to have the leg up in this competition, but Trevor Siemian is breathing down his neck and has a legit shot to steal the show. Sanchez has limited fantasy value should he fend off the competition.

  • Posted: 7/21/2016 12:51pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez was endorsed as the starting quarterback to the team by head coach Gary Kubiak, according to DT Sylvester Williams.

    Huddle Up: While a decision likely hasn't been made, it is regarded as Sanchez's job to lose, although it shouldn't matter too much in the overall fantasy scheme of things.

  • Posted: 7/11/2016 10:52pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian has a legitimate chance in his battle with QB Mark Sanchez for the starting quarterback spot.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos won the Super Bowl with subpar quarterbacking last year, so whichever signal-caller is less mistake-prone--something that's been an issue with Sanchez in the past--will likely be handed the caretaker gig in Gary Kubiak's run-friendly offense.

  • Posted: 7/3/2016 12:10pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez must win the starting quarterback job in training camp, according to The Denver Post's Troy Renck. Renck said he originally thought it was Sanchez's job to lose, but he still gives him a slight edge as the starter.

    Huddle Up: Second-year QB Trevor Siemian has the best grasp of the offense, and first-round pick Paxton Lynch has the best skills and potential, but Sanchez remains the odds-on favorite to be under center Sept. 8 against the Panthers.

  • Posted: 6/7/2016 4:00pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez worked with the first-team offense during practice Tuesday, June 7, and had a good day. QB Trevor Siemian worked with the second-team offense, while QB Paxton Lynch worked with the third team.

    Huddle Up: Unless Siemian displays an edge in having been in Gary Kubiak's offensive system a year longer than the other two, still bank on Sanchez opening the season as the Broncos' starter.

  • Posted: 5/27/2016 10:50am ET

    Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday, May 25, that competition is open at quarterback in organized team activities. However, QB Mark Sanchez's experience gives him the clear edge over QBs Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch despite not having started a season opener since 2012. Sanchez must perform in training camp to hold the other two young QBs off. If he wins the job, Sanchez must limit turnovers during the season to keep the job.

    Huddle Up: With their defense, the Broncos don't need a world-beater at quarterback. And in Gary Kubiak's offense, the quarterback is unlikely to light up the stat sheet with vintage Peyton Manning numbers anyway. If Sanchez can keep the mistakes to a minimum he should be the bridge starter until Lynch is ready, with a modicum of fantasy value to be had given his talented assortment of receivers.

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez (thumb) is doing just about everything the other quarterbacks are doing in organized team activities Tuesday, May 24. Sanchez isn't taking snaps under center, however.

    Huddle Up: As expected no (short) or long-term issues are expected to develop from Sanchez and the surgery on the thumb of his non-throwing hand last week.

  • Posted: 5/19/2016 1:21pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez (thumb) is hopeful he'll be able to participate when organized team activities begin next week. Sanchez is currently recovering from surgery on his left thumb, and he is encouraged by the progress of the recovery.

    Huddle Up: No rush or sense of urgency as the Broncos' first game that counts is still more than three months away. If Sanchez can't participate in OTAs, it'll mean more much-needed reps for young QBs Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian.

  • Posted: 5/17/2016 1:24pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez injured his left thumb in the weight room Thursday, May 12, and underwent surgery Saturday, May 14. He will miss a few organized team activities, according to Mike Kils of 9news.com.

    Huddle Up: Not a huge deal given the calendar, but it reiterates the fragility of the Broncos' QB situation with only raw rookie Paxton Lynch and untested second-year Trevor Siemian the only other QBs on the roster. In any case, it's not looking overly promising for wideouts Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

  • Posted: 5/3/2016 12:38pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez still views himself as a starting quarterback and believes Denver drafting QB Paxton Lynch was affirmation of his starting status. 'Absolutely, that's the message I've received,' Sanchez said. 'I'm thrilled with the opportunity.' Sanchez hasn't let Lynch or any potential trades change his focus. 'I just kind of learned with time, who knows what's going to happen and who cares? What are you supposed to do? Meet your teammates, develop a relationship with them, learn the playbook, get involved in the community, that's it, those three things.'

    Huddle Up: While Lynch has considerable upside and projects as a good fit for Gary Kubiak's offense, he faces a steeper-than-usual NFL learning curve coming out of Memphis' no-huddle, shotgun attack. And with the only other QB on the roster -- second-year Trevor Siemian -- having only taken one regular-season snap, that leaves the seven-year vet Sanchez as the clear favorite to open as the Broncos' starter. Adjust the Denver pass-catchers accordingly.

  • Posted: 4/29/2016 12:33pm ET

    Denver Broncos QB Paxton Lynch will compete with QB Mark Sanchez and QB Trevor Siemian for the starting job, according to executive vice president John Elway.

    Huddle Up: The Broncos have the luxury of developing Lynch behind Sanchez if he's not ready to go as a rookie. However, his college offense had some similarities to the Gary Kubiak offense Denver runs, and with the Broncos' elite defense he only has to be as good as the 2015 versions of Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler, so the bar isn't set particularly high.

  • Posted: 4/21/2016 5:14pm ET

    The Denver Broncos seem fine with going to training camp with QBs Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian and a rookie quarterback, in the opinion of The Denver Post's Cameron Wolfe.

    Huddle Up: Sanchez has grown on the Broncos and the Mile High City since his arrival last month. Meanwhile, the other veteran QB options have thinned, and that's not a good fantasy combination for pass-catchers Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

  • Posted: 4/5/2016 11:17am ET

    Denver Broncos QB Mark Sanchez is holding his annual passing camp Monday, April 4, Tuesday, April 5 and Wednesday, April 6 in California. He will work with Denver wide receivers, tight ends, running backs and QB Trevor Siemian.

    Huddle Up: At this juncture Sanchez is the Broncos' starting QB, so any additional work he can get with his new teammates is a benefit.
