Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders will miss Week 7

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 11:57:23 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) will be sidelined next week with a sprained ankle, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: That's more on the side of good news since the hit on Sanders looked a good deal worse Sunday night. With Sanders out, Bennie Fowler will assume the No. 2 wide receiver position opposite Demaryius Thomas. Fowler is a deep sleeper in standard leagues, but starting him versus the Los Angeles Chargers might be getting too cute.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders to have MRI

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 05:06:56 -0700

Updating previous reports, Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) will have an MRI Monday, Oct. 16, on his injured right ankle. X-rays were negative.

Fantasy Tip: Outside of his two-TD game in Week 2, Sanders has been pretty meh with a 25-266-2 line on the season. With Trevor Siemian (shoulder) also banged up, Sanders doesn't look like a good WR3 play against the Los Angeles Chargers next week.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (leg) left the Week 6 game against the New York Giants in the third quarter due to an apparent right leg injury. He was carted from the sidelines to the locker room.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders was helped off the field and he didn't appear to be able to put any weight on his right ankle.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders targeted 15 times

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 15:03:04 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders racked up seven receptions for 75 yards on 15 targets in Week 3 at Buffalo.

Fantasy Tip: Trevor Siemian looked the way of Sanders early and often, perhaps too often. A couple of times he tried to force it into the veteran and had miscues. It's nice for fantasy owners to see Sanders getting so many looks. He remains a solid WR2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 4 against the visiting Raiders.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders scores twice

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 20:44:14 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders posted six receptions for 62 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 1 against Dallas on eight targets.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders had a big game thanks to a Dallas secondary missing Orlando Scandrick. Things should tighten up considerably against the Bills on the road in Week 3.

Broncos | Denver WRs facing banged up secondary

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 16:00:23 -0700

Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders will be facing a banged up Dallas Cowboys secondary in Week 2 since CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) and CB Chido Awuzie (hamstring) are dealing with injuries. CB Anthony Brown replaced Scandrick as the nickel back in Week 1 and Awuzie was starting opposite CB Nolan Carroll. FS Byron Jones (groin) is also listed as questionable for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas and Sanders likely receive more targets in Week 2 because of the injuries to Dallas' secondary and will look to post better numbers than they did in Week 1. Thomas should be considered at least a No. 2 receiver in most leagues, while Sanders can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders OK after car accident

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 17:23:13 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders was involved in a minor, two-car collision in Parker, Colo., Tuesday, Aug. 22. Sanders told responding officers he had a headache but was otherwise fine. The driver of the other car was also unharmed, and police cited both drivers for careless driving. Sanders practiced in full after the accident.

Fantasy Tip: The veteran was lucky to escape unharmed, although the police report stated his SUV was traveling no more than 35 mph at the time of the accident. He remains a so-so WR3 in fantasy drafts.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders expected to sit out

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 14:07:08 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) is not expected to play in the preseason game against San Francisco 49ers Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders did not practice this week and probably will be held out until the third preseason game. He has played well in each of the last three seasons and should be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues no matter the starting quarterback.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders does not practice

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 17:15:13 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Aug. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders probably will miss the second preseason game, and owners will need to keep an eye out for a timetable for his return. He has posted at least 1,000 yards in each of his three seasons with the Broncos and should have similar success no matter the starting quarterback. He should be seen as a No. 3 receiver in all fantasy leagues.
