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.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders hurts shoulder

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 13:14:36 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) left practice early Wednesday, Aug. 16, after falling on his shoulder. Head coach Vance Joseph indicated that the injury is not serious, however.

Fantasy Tip: Keep tabs on Sanders' injury as the season nears, but for now his fantasy value is unchanged. He remains a viable WR3 even with a subpar quarterback situation.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders has QB timetable

Wed, 12 Jul 2017 17:40:33 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders said he would like to know the team's starting quarterback now if he was up to him but understands that the coaching staff will make the decision when they are ready. Sanders said it would be easier to build chemistry with the starting quarterback if he were able to practice with him all of the time.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders should be productive no matter the quarterback because he has posted at least 1,000 yards in each of the last three seasons. He should be a solid No. 3 fantasy receiver in 2017 as long as he stays healthy.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders feels energized

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 13:46:50 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders has made some changes this offseason, including his diet. Sanders admitted that he was eating poorly but has been listening to his body more and physically feels like a rookie again.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders is going for a fourth straight season of at least 1,000 yards and five touchdowns. Those are attainable numbers in 201, especially with offensive coordinator Mike McCoy back in Denver. Sanders is worthy of WR3 consideration despite subpar quarterback play.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders happy with either QB

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 16:23:32 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders said he believes he can produce with either QB Trevor Siemian or QB Paxton Lynch as the starter because they throw catchable passes. "Both of those guys throw catchable passes," Sanders said. "When it comes to the deep ball, Paxton loves to throw the deep ball. Big, strong arm. Trevor, he loves to throw the out routes, the in-routes. He's a checkdown, all-around type guy."

Fantasy Tip: Sanders posted 1,032 yards with Siemian and Lynch last season and should be able to post similar numbers again in 2017 no matter which quarterback starts. He was posted at least 1,000 yards in each of the last three seasons and can be a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Broncos | Cody Latimer needs to earn spot

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 10:27:24 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Cody Latimer might have one of the hottest seats among Broncos' wide receivers this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Jeff Legwold. WRs Carlos Henderson, Isaiah McKenzie, Bennie Fowler, Jordan Taylor and Kalif Raymond will be Latimer's main competitors for spots on the final roster behind WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders finished with one catch on three targets for 26 yards in a 33-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Dec. 25.

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 15:52:04 -0800

Fantasy Tip: Sanders has been a main factor in the passing game over the last several games and has been targeted at least eight times in each of the last five games. He probably will lose some of his value with Paxton Lynch as the starting quarterback but should still be a No. 3 receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders is coming off an impressive 162-yard performance in Week 12 and has received at least eight targets in each of his last five games. He should be a solid No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all leagues even if Trevor Siemian is not able to play.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders goes deep

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 06:27:15 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders had seven catches for 162 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Nov. 27.

Fantasy Tip: It's the first time he has reached pay dirt since Week 4 and the first time he has topped 100 yards since Week 3. The Jacksonville Jaguars have been really good against opposing WRs the last five weeks, so he'll have his hands full as a low-end WR2 next week.

Fantasy Tip: Nothing to see here as the absence wasn't injury related. He'll be good to go come Sunday.

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 20:35:54 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Sanders has at least four grabs in six straight games, and 68 or more yards in five of his past six outings. He should be considered a WR2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders and their leaky pass defense.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (hip) pulled down four balls for 86 yards on eight targets in the Week 7 game against the Houston Texans Monday, Oct. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders did not seem bothered by a hip issue which had him listed on the injury report this week. He continues to look like the No. 1 receiver in Trevor Siemian's arsenal and is a solid WR2 in most fantasy leagues.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders expected to be OK

Fri, 14 Oct 2016 11:55:11 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (hip) missed the final few plays of his team's Week 6 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Thursday, Oct. 13, but he is reportedly dealing with only a bruise and expected to be "fine" moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: While the injury news is a relief, the Broncos' entire offense - except rookie running back Devontae Booker - looked like it was stuck in the mud in the defeat. Sanders was doing his usual thing and creating separation, but Trevor Siemian wasn't interested in throwing more than 10 yards down the field until it was too late. Assuming no setbacks, Sanders will be a WR2 with a difficult matchup next week against the Houston Texans.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders injures hip

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 20:16:08 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (hip) exited against the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Oct. 13, and is questionable to return with a hip injury.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders was running on the sidelines, so the injury doesn't appear to be anything to worry about over the long haul. He has been a reliable weapon for the Denver passing game and is a borderline WR2 in PPR formats.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders leads the way

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 21:59:45 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders posted game-highs with seven catches, 80 yards and nine targets in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders has 80 or more yards and three touchdowns over the past three games, and he has looked more like the No. 1 wideout in Denver rather than Demaryius Thomas. He remains a must-start fantasy option in all leagues heading into Thursday's Week 6 game at San Diego.

Sun, 02 Oct 2016 22:37:22 -0700

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders solid in Week 3

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 14:34:33 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders caught nine passes for 117 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Fantasy Tip: It is encouraging to see Sanders establish a rapport with Trevor Siemian, something Demaryius Thomas also appears to be doing. Keep Sanders among your top receivers.

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.

Broncos | Talks with Emmanuel Sanders on hold

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 22:16:10 -0700

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.

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 10:29:15 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders has had good talks with the Broncos regarding a new contract, according to The Denver Post's Troy Renck.

Fantasy Tip: The quarterback situation is different in Denver, but Sanders is still the Broncos' best deep threat. Consider him as a WR2 in standard leagues.

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.

Broncos | Demaryius Thomas was shut down by Pats

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 09:58:49 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas had just one catch for 36 yards against New England Patriots CB Logan Ryan in Week 12. The matchup is expected to be the same for the AFC Championship game, and Patriots CB Malcolm Butler will likely match up against WR Emmanuel Sanders.

Fantasy Tip: Don't pass up the fact that Thomas ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) caught just one of his 13 targets in that game. He should have a better performance this time out, but it's still a tough draw, and Peyton Manning hasn't been his normal self all year. At a high FantasyScore price, Thomas isn't all that attractive.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders tries to stay hot

Tue, 19 Jan 2016 19:03:28 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders posted five receptions for 85 yards in the win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, now he'll face the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 24. The Pats allowed 240.7 yards per game through the air, ranking 17th in the NFL against the pass in the regular season.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders ($7,700, 15.4% of cap) has 67 or more yards in each of his past four games, including two touchdowns, and he had six grabs for 113 yards in the first meeting with the Patriots Nov. 29. If you're debating between Demaryius Thomas ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) and Sanders, remember the Pats coaching staff usually try to eliminate the top receiving threat. Do they consider Sanders or Thomas to be more dangerous? We'll find out Sunday, but last time they clamped down on Thomas and allowed Sanders to thrive.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders was a constant in the Denver offense down the stretch, posting 19 receptions for 347 yards with two touchdowns and a 24-yard run. He is a bona fide WR1 in FantasyScore for the team's first playoff game in two weeks.

Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (hamstring) and WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and are listed as probable for the Week 17 game against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) and Sanders ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) have both surpassed the 1,000-yard mark this season and has posted decent numbers over the last few weeks. They will deal with a tough matchup this week but should still be starting options in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) gets a crack at a Chargers pass defense which allow 51 pass plays of 20 or more yards this season. He is a good play at a fairly reasonable FantasyScore price.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders has been up and down of late. In his last four games, he has two 100-yard games and two games of less than 20 yards. Even if Peyton Manning returns, Sanders is a high-risk, high-reward play at FantasyScore.

Fri, 18 Dec 2015 15:15:26 -0800

Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas (non-injury) and Emmanuel Sanders (finger) both practiced in full Friday, Dec. 18, and are probable for Week 15 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) has struggled with drops at times this year but remains an upper-echelon fantasy receiver that can take advantage of this great matchup if Brock Osweiler looks his way often. He's a better pick than Sanders ($6,700, 13.4% of cap), but Sanders also has the talent to reward daily gamers in this one, too.
