START: Mark Sanchez, QB – Philadelphia Eagles

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

He had one infamous fumble on Thanksgiving and now every fantasy owner writes him off as an incompetent quarterback. This week is his chance to prove himself, and I believe that he will play well. Last week he came in for Nick Foles and threw for 202 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions in his first regular season game since December 30th, 2012. Plus, he plays the Carolina Panthers who have the 24th worst defense in total yards per game, so Sanchez should be able to pick this team apart. He also has many more weapons now than he did when he played for the Jets, and he has a great running back named LeSean McCoy. Mark Sanchez is a great quarterback to start this week, especially with all the teams on bye. I’m starting him on my team this week, even with all his butt fumble glory.

SIT: Frank Gore, RB – San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers are slowly collapsing and Frank Gore will not save this team. He has only broke 100 rushing yards twice this season, and he only has one touchdown. He’s getting older and clearly losing his power and speed. He is also losing trust from his coach and teammates. This was proven on Sunday when the 49ers had the ball on the goal-line and chose not to give the ball to Frank Gore. In past seasons, this would’ve been an easy touchdown for Gore, but now they won’t even give him the ball. He is only a running back two if all your other running backs have a bye week and no one is available on the waiver wires.

SLEEPER: Anquan Boldin, WR – San Francisco 49ers

His stats are not phenomenal so far this season, but his stock is gradually going up. In the past three games, he has 20 receptions for 237 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns. His receptions have been going up, as well as his receiving yards, and his touchdowns. In fact, his 2 touchdowns in the past three games are all the touchdowns he has scored in the entire season. Boldin is clearly getting more targets, and he is doing more with those targets. He is at least a wide receiver two this week, if not a wide receiver one.
