Emmanuel Sanders leads team in receptions and yards in playoff loss

Emmanuel Sanders caught six of his nine targets for 48 yards in Sunday's Divisional Round loss to the Bucs.

Fantasy Impact

Sanders had a solid first season in New Orleans, catching 61 receptions for 726 yards and five touchdowns. He's still under contract next season and will likely go as a late-round pick in fantasy drafts. Sanders is still behind Michael Thomas and Tre-Quan Smith on the depth chart and will offer a dangerously low floor with questions surrounding their quarterback play.

Emmanuel Sanders sees three targets but only musters three yards on Sunday

Emmanuel Sanders snagged two of three targets for three yards as the Bears fell to the Saints in the first round of the playoffs.

Fantasy Impact

After leading the Saints in receiving during the final week of the regular season, Sanders fell flat in Sunday's home game. Sanders saw 82 targets this year with Michael Thomas only able to suit up for seven games. With Thomas back in the lineup and seemingly healthy, Sanders will fall behind him and Alvin Kamara on the pecking order, lowering his ceiling for next week against the Bucs.
