Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders the top priority

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 11:00:24 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders is now the top priority for Denver after signing LB Von Miller to a long-term deal. Sanders isn't worried, though, and is staying focused on football. "I just sit back, work out and the rest will take care of itself," Sanders said. Sanders has also stated that he wants to play for the Broncos for a long time.

Fantasy Tip: The fantasy value of the Broncos' receivers dips a little bit this year with an unsure quarterback situation. Even with that uncertainty, Sanders is still a low-end WR2 consideration in standard leagues.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders bulks up

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 09:38:27 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders said he has added 10 pounds of muscle this offseason, and he's not concerned about his contract talks.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders is a decent WR2 as the primary deep threat for the team. The quarterback situation will have an effect on him, but he posted a 76-1,135-6 season last year with a questionable QB situation as well.

Contract talks between Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders and the club are not off, but they are on hold for now. He is scheduled to make $5.6 million in the final year of his contract this season.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders will be the team's most consistent deep threat and he will again be a dependable WR2 in all fantasy leagues despite the quarterback change from Peyton Manning to Mark Sanchez.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders not worried about deal

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 13:54:16 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders is entering the final year of his contract but is not worried about his contract situation because he believes something will be worked out.

Fantasy Tip: The Broncos are trying to sign Von Miller to a new deal but likely will turn their attention to Sanders at some point. His fantasy value will take a bit of a hit because of the team's quarterback situation, but he should still be a weekly starting option in all fantasy leagues in 2016.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders talking extension

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 23:43:29 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders received a contract proposal last week from the team, and his agent recently sent back a counter offer.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders had a decent 76-1,135-6 season last year, but it paled in comparison to expectations after his monstrous '14. Now he's slated to have Mark Sanchez under center, and at 29, that 2014 season could be an afterthought. He's still a solid WR2 in fantasy, but expectations should be tempered.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders not worried about deal

Mon, 18 Apr 2016 19:30:02 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders is set to make $5.6 million in 2016, the final year of his contract. He said Monday, April 18, that he isn't worried about his contract and is focused on winning championships. "I mean this sincerely: The city of Denver has been really good to me," Sanders said. "I want to be a Bronco. I want to be a Bronco for a long time. I want to retire a Bronco. Hopefully everything works out. I'm sure both sides will come to something. We're going to see how it goes, but right now it's not about me. It's about this team and about winning championships, and that's what I'm focused on."

Fantasy Tip: Publicly that's what Sanders is saying, but privately it has to be a concern, especially since the team is expected to take a step back offensively with Peyton Manning riding off into the sunset, Brock Osweiler now in Houston and Mark Sanchez under center in the Mile High City. That's a major downgrade for a receiver in his contract season.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders won't face Josh Norman

Fri, 05 Feb 2016 09:53:35 -0800

Carolina Panthers CB Josh Norman said he doesn't expect to line up at all against Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders in Super Bowl 50. Norman is expected to cover Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas instead.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas has six catches for 52 yards in just two playoff games this year, and he's been plagued by costly drops throughout the year. However, he finished 2015 with 105 catches for 1,304 yards and six touchdowns, so he's still a top receiving talent. But it won't be easy against Norman, who is having an All-Pro season.

Broncos | Arm not an issue for Peyton Manning

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 12:06:25 -0800

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning has drawn much criticism for his declining arm strength, but at least one teammate doesn't see it that way. WR Emmanuel Sanders believes most of Manning's issues have been a result of the foot injury that sidelined him for most of the second half of the season. "It wasn't his arm. It was just his foot. Peyton's arm has always been good to me, in my eyes. He's never had a really, really strong arm. He's always been the guy that before you come out of your breaks, the ball is there," Sanders said.

Fantasy Tip: Manning's completion percentage has actually dipped from 59.8% in the regular season to 55.1 in the playoffs, but he has avoided the interceptions that dogged him throughout the first four months of the season. Another mistake-free game would go a long way in helping the Broncos upset the Carolina Panthers in what could be his final game in Super Bowl 50.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders has Pats' number

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 11:29:20 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders has caught 22 passes for 362 yards in Denver's last three games against the New England Patriots.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders really opens up the field for the Broncos, and he should have a few chances on some deep balls today against the Patriots. While it would behoove Denver to get their running game going, Sanders is still worth starting on FantasyScore, especially considering his recent success versus New England.
