Broncos | Several Broncos sitting Thursday

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 16:54:05 -0700

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning, RB C.J. Anderson, WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders and other key players will not play against the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: This is nothing out of the ordinary. Sanders, especially, might need the extra rest as he has been nursing a hamstring injury. Manning, Anderson and Thomas should be drafted as a QB1, RB1 and WR1, respectively. Sanders is more of a WR2 this year.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (hamstring) is participating in practice Monday, Aug. 31.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders could return next week

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 15:03:05 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (hamstring) could return to full practice participation next week, according to head coach Gary Kubiak. Sanders is still on pace to be ready for the regular season opener Sunday, Sept. 13.

Fantasy Tip: As long as Sanders doesn't aggravate the hamstring injury, it would be surprising not to see him on the field to start the season. He's an invaluable part of the Broncos' offense, but a duplication of last season's output shouldn't be expected. Still, he's in WR2 territory.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (hamstring) may practice Friday, Aug. 28, according to head coach Gary Kubiak.
