Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders compares QBs

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 17:11:56 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders said QB Peyton Manning is a "better leader" than Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger. "This is the first time that I had a quarterback that stays every single day after practice, no matter what his accolades," Sanders said. "From NFL MVP, Super Bowl rings. He keeps guys like me and (Cody) Latimer after practice and we're out there 15, 20 minutes. And he's not one of those guys you gotta go chase down, he's gonna be right at the same spot ready to work, every single day."

Fantasy Tip: Sanders is set to be the No. 3 receiver for the Broncos this season, and the extra work he is putting in with Manning should help him hit the ground running when the season begins. He is worth drafting in the middle rounds as a WR3 in fantasy leagues.

Broncos | Wide open behind Top 3 receivers

Wed, 16 Jul 2014 20:31:26 -0700

Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Emmanuel Sanders will be the top three wide receivers, with WRs Andre Caldwell and Cody Latimer also in the plans. Undrafted WR Isaiah Burse has potential but will have to show some significant pop in the preseason games to earn a potential job as return man and possible sixth receiver.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders excited

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 06:32:26 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders said it feels like he landed in "wide receiver heaven" when he signed with the team. "The thing that I like about the Broncos is there is really no No. 1 guy," Sanders said. "Peyton always goes with the favorable matchup and that's what I'm really liking about this offense. Any guy could go off for 180 yards or 100 yards with 10 catches any week, week in and week out, just based off of matchups."

Fantasy Tip: Sanders is one of those receivers that could light it up any given week in good matchups. He is a decent fantasy WR3.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders has been running extra routes after practice to improve his timing with QB Peyton Manning. Sanders wanted to go to a spread offense where he wouldn't have to block "75 percent of the time" and is elated to be with last season's top offense.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders has mid-round fantasy appeal. His value is on the rise, especially in PPR formats.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders was almost in Kansas City

Sun, 16 Mar 2014 23:28:17 -0700

The three-year deal WR Emmanuel Sanders signed to join the Denver Broncos stands as official. However, Sanders' agent, Steve Weinberg, had originally accepted a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs on his client's behalf. Weinberg then shopped Kansas City's offer to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers without telling the Buccaneers that the offer had already been accepted. Ultimately, of course, Sanders agreed to sign with Denver.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders agrees to terms

Sat, 15 Mar 2014 18:59:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Denver Broncos agreed to terms with free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers) Saturday, March 15, a source confirmed.

Fantasy Tip: There had been conflicting information about Sanders, as he was visiting with the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday night. Sanders will see a nice increase in fantasy appeal playing with Peyton Manning and the high-flying Denver aerial attack. He will ostensibly replace Eric Decker, making him a solid WR2/3 or flex option in most fantasy leagues in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: There was a report earlier that stated Sanders was to sign with the division rival of the Chiefs, the Denver Broncos. Perhaps Kansas City is sweetening their offer and making an 11th hour bid to keep him from going to their enemy.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders expected to sign

Sat, 15 Mar 2014 18:19:42 -0700

The Denver Broncos are expected to sign free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers), according to league sources. Neither the team, nor the player's agent, will confirm the report.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders would see a bump in fantasy value playing with Peyton Manning in the Mile High City. He would likely be in the mix to replace the receptions void caused by the loss of Eric Decker via free agency. He could emerge as a solid WR2/3 or flex fantasy play.

NFL | Medical concerns for Emmanuel Sanders?

Fri, 14 Mar 2014 15:44:37 -0700

There are medical concerns surrounding free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (foot), meaning he may not get the type of deal he was seeking in free agency. He has a screw in each foot after injuries he suffered in the Super Bowl following the 2010 season. Sanders is reportedly seeking a contract similar to the five-year, $31.5 million deal that WR Golden Tate received from the Detroit Lions. The Pittsburgh Steelers are open to re-signing him, but he'll likely have to accept a much shorter deal.
