Until Mark Sanchez finds a roster spot and meaningful playing time with a new team, Fantasy owners shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.
The NFL handed Sanchez a four-game suspension for a violation of the policy on performance-enhancing substances, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Sanchez hasn't been called upon to perform since two appearances for the Cowboys in 2016 and hasn't been a regular starter since the second half of the 2014 season with the Eagles. Having said that, he still served as the Bears' third-string QB last year, so he holds a certain sway among NFL front offices. While he'll miss the first quarter of the upcoming campaign, it won't surprise if he latches onto a roster somewhere in the coming months.
Sanchez didn't take a snap with the Bears in 2017 and will enter free agency this offseason. Sanchez has been in the league seven years, but he's attempted just 109 passes over the last three campaigns as a backup. He'll likely latch on as a second-stringer somewhere and is unlikely to be a fantasy option unless he finds his way into the starting lineup.
Sanchez (illness) wasn't present on the Bears' injury report Wednesday. Sanchez sat out Sunday's loss to the Eagles, but that also may have been a coach's decision rather than as a result of the illness. The 31-year-old has served as Chicago's No. 3 quarterback this season, and that's unlikely to change barring an injury to Mitchell Trubisky or Mike Glennon.
Sanchez (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports. It's likely that Sanchez, who missed Friday's practice with the illness, is inactive in a coach's decision, as he's been stuck in the No. 3 quarterback role all season. Mike Glennon will serve as the backup to starter Mitchell Trubisky on Sunday.
Sanchez (illness) is not on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Saints, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports. Whatever issues Sanchez was dealing with that held him out of Thursday's practice look to be behind him. He'll once again serve as the Bears' No. 3 option at quarterback.
