Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders scores twice

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 20:44:14 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders posted six receptions for 62 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Week 1 against Dallas on eight targets.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders had a big game thanks to a Dallas secondary missing Orlando Scandrick. Things should tighten up considerably against the Bills on the road in Week 3.

Broncos | Denver WRs facing banged up secondary

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 16:00:23 -0700

Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders will be facing a banged up Dallas Cowboys secondary in Week 2 since CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) and CB Chido Awuzie (hamstring) are dealing with injuries. CB Anthony Brown replaced Scandrick as the nickel back in Week 1 and Awuzie was starting opposite CB Nolan Carroll. FS Byron Jones (groin) is also listed as questionable for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas and Sanders likely receive more targets in Week 2 because of the injuries to Dallas' secondary and will look to post better numbers than they did in Week 1. Thomas should be considered at least a No. 2 receiver in most leagues, while Sanders can be a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders OK after car accident

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 17:23:13 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders was involved in a minor, two-car collision in Parker, Colo., Tuesday, Aug. 22. Sanders told responding officers he had a headache but was otherwise fine. The driver of the other car was also unharmed, and police cited both drivers for careless driving. Sanders practiced in full after the accident.

Fantasy Tip: The veteran was lucky to escape unharmed, although the police report stated his SUV was traveling no more than 35 mph at the time of the accident. He remains a so-so WR3 in fantasy drafts.

Broncos | Emmanuel Sanders expected to sit out

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 14:07:08 -0700

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) is not expected to play in the preseason game against San Francisco 49ers Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Sanders did not practice this week and probably will be held out until the third preseason game. He has played well in each of the last three seasons and should be considered a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues no matter the starting quarterback.

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.
