Wed, 24 Dec 2014 15:10:56 -0800
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (hip) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders' ($5,555) injury isn't expected to keep him out this weekend against the Oakland Raiders. The matchup is a great one for him, so he's a solid option for your FantasyScore lineups in Week 17.
Tue, 23 Dec 2014 10:19:50 -0800
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (back) left the game with back spasms for the team's final offensive series, but he should be fine to play in Week 17 against the Oakland Raiders.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the late injury, Sanders had a great game with two touchdown catches in the loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Monday night. If he's good to go for the season finale, he should be a solid FantasyScore option for $5,555 against the Raiders.
Mon, 22 Dec 2014 16:10:35 -0800
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (illness) is active for the Week 16 game against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, Dec. 22.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders was questionable due to an illness, but he is ready to go. He'll be one of Peyton Manning's top targets against a middle-of-the-road pass defense from Cincinnati.
Sat, 20 Dec 2014 09:58:58 -0800
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (illness) is not participating in practice Saturday, Dec. 20, because he was sent home with flu-like symptoms.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders will have a few days to recover from the illness and should be able to play in Week 16. Sanders costs $6,600 on FantasyScore but will be facing a tough Cincinnati Bengals defense.
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 10:43:02 -0800
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins, according to head coach John Fox.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders ($6,900) is a must-start in standard fantasy leagues, and he's a fine option at FantasyScore, too. Heck, he may even be more valuable this week against the Miami Dolphins if Julius Thomas (ankle) doesn't play. Sanders has been Peyton Manning's favorite target for most of the year.
Fri, 21 Nov 2014 10:11:02 -0800
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) is participating in practice Friday, Nov. 21.
Fantasy Tip: It is still not clear how much Sanders will be able to do if he is able to get on the field Sunday, but at a price of $6,900, he should be avoided in FantasyScore.
Thu, 20 Nov 2014 16:40:09 -0800
Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) has done conditioning work and will be evaluated again Friday, Nov. 21.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders is still very iffy for Sunday's game versus the Miami Dolphins. His FantasyScore price $6,900 should be avoided for now.
Thu, 20 Nov 2014 11:58:43 -0800
Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) is able to exercise as part of his concussion protocol.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders appears to be making progress, but it is still not known if he will be able to play in Week 12. Owners should continue to monitor the situation and check the inactive list to see if is playing. Sanders costs $6,900 on FantasyScore, but owners should avoid using him this week.
Thu, 20 Nov 2014 10:11:57 -0800
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) is not participating in practice Thursday, Nov. 20.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders will need to pass all of his concussion tests before being cleared to play again. If Sanders is not able to play, Cody Latimer and Andre Caldwell likely will have bigger roles in the offense. Latimer and Caldwell each cost $3,000 on FantasyScore, but Latimer may have more value.
Wed, 19 Nov 2014 10:24:09 -0800
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders still has a few days to be cleared to play, so owners should continue to watch his status during the week. Cody Latimer and Andre Caldwell could receive more work if Sanders is not able to play. Latimer and Caldwell both cost $3,000 on FantasyScore, but Latimer has more upside if owners want to decide between the two receivers.
Mon, 17 Nov 2014 14:19:22 -0800
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) is likely to miss practice this week after suffering a concussion in Week 11. He'll go through the concussion protocol, and his status for Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins will depend on whether he's cleared later in the week by an independent doctor.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders looked to be in good shape after he left the field, so it'll depend on whether he clears the protocol later this week. He could be very questionable against the Dolphins, however, making him a pretty risky FantasyScore option.
Sun, 16 Nov 2014 15:35:06 -0800
Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) suffered a concussion in the third quarter of the Week 11 game against the St. Louis Rams, but he appeared to be alert in the postgame locker room. He needs to go through the NFL protocol before he is cleared to return.
Fantasy Tip: Check back next Friday on the status of Sanders for Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins. At this point, he is a huge question mark for FantasyScore owners.
Sun, 16 Nov 2014 12:11:30 -0800
Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) suffered a concussion in the team's Week 11 game and will not return.
Fantasy Tip: Sanders will have to pass the concussion tests before he is cleared to play again. Owners will have to watch his practice participation this week to see if he has a chance to play in Week 12. Owners should have a replacement ready in case he is not able to play.
Sun, 16 Nov 2014 11:34:27 -0800
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (undisclosed) was helped off the field after taking a big hit in the team's Week 11 game. He is going to the locker room and is being evaluated for a concussion.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see if he is diagnosed with a concussion or if he is cleared. Sanders could miss if he is dealing with a concussion.
Thu, 23 Oct 2014 21:06:34 -0700
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, 11 Jun 2014 11:57:36 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders continues to show his quick burst and ability to stretch the defense, catching a long touchdown from QB Peyton Manning Wednesday, June 11.
Wed, 14 May 2014 14:28:22 -0700
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.
Wed, 09 Apr 2014 05:47:12 -0700
Denver Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (shoulder) is not taking part in workouts with QB Peyton Manning and teammates at Duke University because of the shoulder injury he suffered in the Super Bowl. WRs Emmanuel Sanders, Wes Welker and Andre Caldwell are present with TE Julius Thomas.
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.
Sun, 16 Mar 2014 10:14:53 -0700

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.
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.
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.
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. 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.
Fri, 14 Mar 2014 11:40:17 -0700
