Broncos | Denver receivers face tough test

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 13:07:33 -0700

Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders face a stingy Cincinnati Bengals pass defense in Week 3. The Bengals have allowed a combined nine catches for 108 yards to New York Jets WRs Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker and Pittsburgh Steelers WR Antonio Brown through the first two weeks of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Trevor Siemian has been somewhat mistake prone so far in this young season, too, which doesn't help the causes of Thomas or Sanders either. It's hard to bench either Thomas or Sanders in any given week, but lower the expectations for the standout Broncos receivers this week.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders receives new deal

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 14:38:30 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Broncos Wednesday, Sept. 7, worth $33 million, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders has played well since joining the Broncos and will continue to be one of the top targets in the passing game. He should be a No. 3 wide receiver in most leagues.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders praises Trevor Siemian

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 16:51:46 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders complimented QB Trevor Siemian, saying he throws a "very catchable ball" and he "can make all the throws." Sanders also said he liked the decision of anointing Siemian the Week 1 starter.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders has basically been Mr. Steady over the past two seasons in Denver, registering 177 receptions and 15 touchdown catches over that span, but owners rightfully wonder if he can keep it up with a new quarterback under center. Based on this analysis from Sanders himself, it may be more likely than not that he churns out another productive campaign, which could make him an excellent value pick based on his average draft position. This also should provide owners some more confidence in Siemian, who might turn out to be a terrific bargain as one of the latter quarterbacks selected in fantasy.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders not seeking huge deal?

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 19:25:33 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders said he wants a fair deal but isn't trying to "break the bank" during negotiations on a contract extension.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders has delivered two strong seasons since arriving in Denver, but the quarterback situation in 2016 could cap his upside. Draft him as a reliable WR3.

Broncos | Denver working on Emmanuel Sanders deal

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 12:29:51 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders' representatives are still talking with the Broncos about a contract extension. General manager John Elway said he would like to reach an agreement with Sanders but is not sure what will happen.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders has posted at least 1,100 yards in each of his two seasons with the Broncos and will continue to be a main option in the passing game. Sanders should be a fine No. 2 or No. 3 wide receiver in most fantasy leagues.

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.
