|After a pair of seasons leading the Jets to the AFC Championship game, Sanchez put together a career year in 2012 with career highs in passing yards with 3,474, passing touchdowns with 26 and rushing touchdowns with 6. All the more impressive is that Sanchez produced despite having his lead receiver (Santonio Holmes) sulk his way through the season and having an aging Plaxico Burress on the other side with no proven third receiver on the roster and tight end Dustin Keller go through another late season swoon. The reward for Sanchez? A chance to compete with former Bronco Tim Tebow to retain his starting job. Not helping matters is that Holmes returns as the teamís lead receiver and Burress has been replaced by raw rookie Stephen Hill. The current plan is for the Jets to rotate Tebow in for a number of plays each game, basically torpedoing any fantasy value Sanchez had. Unless the rotation plan changes, donít add Sanchez to your roster.

|ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Mark Sanchez will miss the first few days of OTAs next week after undergoing surgery to repair a ligament in his left, non-throwing hand.
The Denver Broncos' new quarterback injured his left thumb in a weight room mishap on Thursday while participating in team-wide strength and conditioning work.
He underwent surgery Saturday in Vail, Colorado.
FF Today's Take: Not much to read into here as the team expects Mark Sanchez back in about a week. He will miss the start of OTAs but remains the favorite to open the season as the starter in Denver.
