Case Keenum really clicked with Sanders in the preseason, so it wouldn't be a shock to see Sanders outscore Demaryius Thomas. With a deflated ADP, Sanders is a prime bounce-back candidate.  
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Snapping a three-year streak of 130-target, 1,000-yard seasons, Sanders saw those marks evaporate to 92 and 555 in a dozen games. His YPG average continued to drop dramatically (87.8, 75.7, 64.5, 46.3), and his catch % tumbled to a career-low 51.1. Denver's passers must accept some of the blame, so Case Keenum has the opportunity to at least repair his stock as a high-volume WR3. Anyone who only follows football through preseason fantasy analysis will think Parker is one of football's finest wideouts. Once again expected to take a seismic leap, he once again underwhelmed by scoring once in 13 games. He also garnered 96 targets in 13 games and 35 of them in Miami's final four contests. Jarvis Landry vacated 161 targets (21 inside the red zone), giving Parker his best opportunity yet to meet the hype. A broken finger should derail the usual August hype, perhaps making him available at a fair price for a change.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's very possible that Sanders outperforms my ranking of him, but he's now 31 years old and has started to show signs of slowing down, whether it be age or injuries. His yards per target has declined each of the last three seasons, bottoming out at 6.0 yards in 2017. The upgrade in quarterback should help, though, as he was still averaging 7.7 targets per game, which ranked 17th among wide receivers. He should be considered a solid WR3 with some upside, though Courtland Sutton and Demaryius Thomas aren't going to just go away. If the preseason has been a sign of things to come, Sanders might just be Case Keenum's favorite target. There are a lot of fantasy players who are bailing on Parker at this point in his career, and while I get why they'd want to do that, it's a mistake. He's a former first-round pick who is 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, who has produced when he's been healthy. There've been 25 games in which he's seen at least five targets, and in those games he's averaged 68.2 yards and 0.3 touchdowns, which is low-end WR2 numbers. He did that with Jarvis Landry on the team, who is now a Cleveland Browns receiver. It's rare to find a player this late in drafts who has 120-target potential, but Parker does. If he stays healthy, he's likely going to finish as a top-30 wide receiver with upside for more. Update: Parker is going to miss multiple weeks with a broken finger, which should temper expectations, though he's still undervalued.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Prior to last year, Sanders was a WR2 or better for three straight years. Now that they've got a solid quarterback, we may see him return to that type of production, but it is also a far cry from the WR64 he finished last year. He is a classic risk/reward type of receiver this season.Sure, he was a major letdown last year, and the year before, but this could be the year. You might be tired of hearing that, but with Jarvis Landry gone and Tannehill back, are you seriously going to suggest Danny Amendola or Kenny Stills will step in as the top receiver in this offense? Be honest, you know it is Parker and you've gotta buy that lottery ticket once again.
Staff Rankings
QB List
If the Broncos have a receiver with elite athleticism in Demaryius Thomas, then in Sanders they have a receiver with elite-elite hands. Like OBJ and Marvin Jones, Sanders has long been known as an extremely skilled receiver who can make acrobatic catches at will, however injuries and poor QB play have shackled him to a life of fantasy mediocrity. But, what's this? Sanders looks up. The Osweiler-Lynch-Semien clouds part as Sanders is draped in heavenly light. Through the blinding light a hand extends down to him. He gently grasps the outstretched hand, and blocking the light with his hand on his forehead, Emmanuel sees the ethereal image of Case Keenum before him. "Come. Your suffering ends now" Keenum exclaims as he lifts the sobbing Sanders into the upper reaches of fantasyland*. Seriously though, Keenum was one of the best QB's under pressure last season, all while doing so in a top 5 sample size of QB pressures. Even with a suspect Broncos O-line (yes even with McGlinchy), I cannot understate the tremendous upgrade both Thomas and Sanders will see in QB play. Though he will still presumably receive the short end of the team target share with Demaryius Thomas around, and even with talented 2nd round receiver Courtland Sutton nipping at his heels, we saw the kind of numbers a talented #2 receiver in a Keenum led offense could put up i.e Stefon Diggs. Injuries and target share considered, Sanders COULD still underperform his top 30 ranking, but with potentially top 15 upside, I feel Sanders at #26 offers tremendous value.Devante Parker was supposed to be the stud opposite Jarvis Landry in Miami, but seeing as he plays for the Dolphins, of course it didn't work out as planned. However, with Tannehill returning to the fold, and Landry and his massive target share gone from Miami, Parker has a big opportunity to perform. Keep in mind though, that Parker has not shown good skills or physical traits in the past year. Take it with a grain of salt, but the opportunity is there as he seems like the defacto #1 receiver in Miami.

Could be the WR steal of the draft, he's way better than he's graded out and Keenum could provide a massive lift to Denver's passing gameParker steps into a huge role with Landry leaving. It all depends if he's ready to break out
Raju Byfield

Sanders should bounce back in a major way with Keenum in town and a healthy Chad Kelly to back him upHe is now officially in the post-hype potential sleeper or bust category
