Broncos | Fewer targets for Emmanuel Sanders?

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 19:21:55 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders had a breakout season and Pro Bowl appearance in 2014, but with a tweaked offense under head coach Gary Kubiak the receiver might see fewer passes thrown his way.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders is expected to move into the slot in three-wide receiver formations, so he'll still be a standout for fantasy owners in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR). He might have slightly fewer numbers in standard formats, but he is still a strong WR2 or flex fantasy option in all formats.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders may see dip in stats

Wed, 27 May 2015 22:17:02 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders indicated he may not be able to put up the same numbers in 2015 than he did in 2014 because of the offense head coach Gary Kubiak is bringing to the team. "It's definitely different," Sanders said. "You talk about going from a no-huddle offense to an offense that's huddling up, to an offense that is predicated off running a football and then throwing it. It's different." Sanders said his goal is to have 1,000 receiving yards on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders likely will not catch over 100 passes this upcoming season, but he should continue to have a solid role in the passing game. Sanders' fantasy value could drop some because of the new offense, but he is still an option in the middle rounds of drafts.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders to play some in slot

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 11:26:54 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders said he will play in the slot when the Broncos play with a three wide receiver set, and that he's comfortable in that position.

Fantasy Tip: As Sanders said, he played slot in college and with the Pittsburgh Steelers, so this won't be anything new to him. This shouldn't have a lot of bearing on his fantasy value, except that his depth of target may decrease somewhat. He should still be considered in the high-end WR2 range.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders to play in Pro Bowl

Thu, 15 Jan 2015 12:32:31 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders will play in the 2015 Pro Bowl is an injury replacement for Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (undisclosed).

Fantasy Tip: Sanders is coming off a terrific 2014 season with career highs in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. Sanders' fantasy value likely will be affected by Peyton Manning's decision on his future. Sanders probably would be a No. 2 wide receiver in fantasy drafts if Manning decides to return but could be more like a No. 3 receiver if Manning decides to retire.
