Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow will be nothing more than fantasy backups. Sanchez did average 27.11 points per game in 2011, which isn’t bad, but isn’t a guy like Drew Brees, who averaged over 40 points per game. With the return to the running game, Sanchez’s numbers will go down. In 2009, at the height of the Jets running game, Sanchez only averaged 16.5 points per game. Other than as a bye week replacement, stay away from Mark on your fantasy team.
I would say the same thing of Tim Tebow, for a couple of reasons. One because of his lack of ability to complete passes, which I won’t go into since I already have on this website. The second reason is that he just won’t play enough to have an impact as a fantasy QB. Stay away.
As far as the wide receivers go, I wouldn’t choose Santonio Holmes earlier than around the 5th round. The reason? You don’t know what you are going to get from him. He could have a big season, or he could mope around. There are a lot of great receivers around the league that you don’t need to waste an early round pick on him.
Jeremy Kerley will have a solid year, but he just won’t catch enough balls in the slot to make a fantasy impact. Chaz Schilens is another unknown that could be great. He has looked great this offseason so far, and if he stays healthy, will put up good numbers. Keep an eye on him as your draft progresses, and consider taking a flyer on him in the mid to late rounds. He could be a sleeper if you can get him late.
