Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders had nine catches on nine targets for a team-high 120 yards and three touchdowns in the team's Week 8 game Thursday, Oct. 23.
Fantasy Tip: After a couple of quiet games, Sanders bounced back with his best game of the season. He has been excellent in his first year in Denver, and at his current $6,200 salary (12.4% of cap), Sanders is a bargain at FantasyScore compared to many of the receivers in his price range.
Sat, 11 Oct 2014 10:25:16 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders leads the team in receptions and receiving yards but has yet to score through four games. Sanders and the Broncos face a New York Jets defense that has allowed six touchdowns to wide receivers.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders has the matchup to achieve his first touchdown as Peyton Manning approaches Brett Favre's record of 508 career touchdowns. Sanders should be in your lineup anyway, but he could pay dividends at $6,900 on FantasyScore.
Tue, 23 Sep 2014 13:10:13 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders leads the NFL with 25 catches through three weeks, and he's third with 334 receiving yards.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders should be in lineups on a weekly basis, although the Broncos are on bye in Week 4. Sanders could see his targets drop slightly, though, now that Wes Welker is back in action.
Wed, 17 Sep 2014 13:31:24 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Wes Welker will return to the slot receiver position in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks, moving WR Emmanuel Sanders back outside opposite WR Demaryius Thomas. WR Andre Caldwell will return to the No. 4 receiver role.
Fantasy Tip: Unfortunately, Welker won't be available at FantasyScore this week, but he should be returned immediately to all standard lineups against the Seahawks.
Mon, 15 Sep 2014 09:39:29 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders led the team with eight catches for 108 yards in Week 2 against the Kansas City Chiefs. It was the first 100-yard game of his career.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders has been a fine fantasy option in the first two weeks despite not reaching the end zone. His usage in the offense could take a hit, though, if Wes Welker returns in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Sun, 07 Sep 2014 15:51:52 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Andre Caldwell is listed as a starter for Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Sept. 7, in place of the suspended WR Wes Welker. The team is expected to use a combination of WRs Emmanuel Sanders, Demaryius Thomas and even their running backs in the slot for Week 1. The team might also use two tight ends while using flex TE Jacob Tamme in the slot.
Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners who rolled the dice on the low-priced Caldwell could be in for a surprising stat line with Caldwell. Stay tuned.
Fri, 05 Sep 2014 13:23:51 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (thigh) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 5, and is probable for Week 1 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders should be a big part of Denver's game plan without Wes Welker. At a FantasyScore price of $5,200 (10.4% of cap), Sanders is ripe for a profit against the Colts.
Thu, 04 Sep 2014 14:36:24 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (thigh) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Sept. 4.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders should be in all starting lineups in Week 1 with Wes Welker out. At a price of $5,200 at FantasyScore, he could easily return nice profit against the Indianapolis Colts.
Wed, 03 Sep 2014 13:33:04 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (thigh) practiced in full Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Fantasy Tip: Without suspended Wes Welker against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1, Sanders will be a focal point of the offense. His price is ripe for a nice return in daily games, in a contest that could easily become a shoot out.
Tue, 26 Aug 2014 14:12:15 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) is still not at 100 percent in his recovery from an injured right quadriceps. Sanders takes breaks during practice to avoid aggravating the injury.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders certainly looked close to 100 percent in his coming out party against the Houston Texans. He'll be a key weapon in the Broncos' passing attack this season and has low-end WR2 potential.
Fri, 22 Aug 2014 08:16:13 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) had a full practice Thursday, Aug. 21, and he could play in his first preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders should be good to go, but if he suffers another setback, he may be in trouble for Week 1. We'll keep you posted. For now, draft him as a low-end WR3.
Wed, 20 Aug 2014 19:29:29 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) was involved in practice Wednesday, Aug. 20, but he is not working in "live" setting yet. Head coach John Fox would not rule out Sanders' return from a quadriceps injury in time for the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23, against the Houston Texans.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders is in line to be either the No. 3 or 4 receiver in Denver. On most clubs, that wouldn't amount to much fantasy appeal, but with Peyton Manning in the high-octane offense, Sanders is a decent WR4 or flex play if he can get healthy.
Sun, 17 Aug 2014 18:17:29 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) did not play in the second preseason game. Sanders missed some practice time this week, and the team wants to be cautious with Sanders.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders can take his time coming back from the injury, because he has a few weeks before the start of the season. He could be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 wide receiver in most fantasy leagues.
Wed, 13 Aug 2014 10:13:07 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) is expected to play in the second preseason game even though he has been dealing with a quadriceps injury.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders can take his time to make sure he is ready for the start of the regular season. Sanders could be considered a No. 4 wide receiver at this point but has the chance to become a No. 3 receiver because of the offense he plays on.
Wed, 13 Aug 2014 09:58:45 -0700
Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning recently worked with WRs Emmanuel Sanders and Cody Latimer after practice to make sure they know what each hand signal and code word means. Manning did not throw any passes during the session.
Tue, 12 Aug 2014 19:23:02 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) was back at practice Tuesday, Aug. 12, and he lined up with WR Demaryius Thomas in packages that featured two wide receivers and two tight ends.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders may be the third receiver on his own team, but because of Denver's prolific passing attack, he is still a solid WR3.
Sat, 09 Aug 2014 09:41:50 -0700
Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) was excused from practice Saturday, Aug. 8.
Sat, 09 Aug 2014 08:34:27 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (thigh) missed practice Tuesday, Aug. 5, with a strained right thigh.
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.
Thu, 17 Jul 2014 11:15:13 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders likely will not be used as a returner this upcoming season, because he is expected to have a significant role on offense.
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.
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.

Wed, 09 Apr 2014 05:47:12 -0700

The three-year deal WR Emmanuel Sanders signed to join the Denver Broncos stands as official.

Ultimately, of course, Sanders agreed to sign with Denver.

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.

He will ostensibly replace Eric Decker, making him a solid WR2/3 or flex option in most fantasy leagues in 2014.
Sat, 15 Mar 2014 18:40:14 -0700
Free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers) is visiting with the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, March 15, for the second night in a row, according to a source.

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.
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.

Thu, 26 Dec 2013 14:03:56 -0800
Pittsburgh Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 26.
