Mark Sanchez (New York Jets) vs. New York Giants
Sanchez went 15-for-26 for 150 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles, which gives him 11 total touchdowns (nine passing) in his last four games despite not throwing for more than 181 yards in any of those contests. Week 16 brings an opportunity for another productive game against the New York Giants, who have allowed the eighth-most fantasy points (16.5 per game) to opposing quarterbacks, though some of that can be chalked up to allowing 12 touchdown passes to Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Tony Romo from Week 12-Week 14. Sanchez is obviously not in that elite class of quarterbacks, but he still has a chance to be productive and should be regarded as a low-end QB1 or high-end QB2 for this week.

POTENTIAL QB SLEEPER PICK OF THE WEEK
Kyle Orton (Kansas City Chiefs) vs. Oakland
Orton looked good in his first extended action for the Chiefs in Week 15 against the Green Bay Packers, going 23-for-31 for 299 yards with no touchdowns but also no interceptions in the Chiefs’ improbable win. Another nice matchup is coming for Week 16 against the Oakland Raiders, who have been generous to opposing signal callers to the tune of 17.9 fantasy points per game (third-most in the league) to the position, including 27 touchdown passes (second-most). When he played against the Raiders as a member of the Denver Broncos back in Week 1, Orton threw for 304 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the game and may be able to find some success again this week. Kansas City is unlikely to throw the ball a ton, but Orton still makes for a solid option for fantasy owners who are looking for a QB2 with some upside.
