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.

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 22:15:00 -0800

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders posted five catches for 99 yards in the Week 17 game against the San Diego Chargers. He was targeted eight times, and he lost a fumble.

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.

Broncos | Denver's top two WRs probable

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 13:45:24 -0800

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) will have a solid role in the passing game this week and is coming off two straight games with a touchdown. Owners should consider using Sanders in their starting lineups because of his favorable matchup against the San Diego Chargers.
