Emmanuel Sanders

Denver Broncos
Note from FantasyPros Staff

In 2014, he blew up for 1,404 receiving yards, 101 receptions and 9 touchdowns. Yes, he did have good-Peyton throwing him the ball, but those are terrific numbers. If he can retain some of that production, we will be shaking our heads at how low he went in drafts this season.

Emmanuel Sanders caught three passes from second-year QB Trevor Siemian in Saturday night's game against the 49ers. He had 24 yards receiving on the night.

Fantasy Impact: It was Trevor Siemian's turn to run the first team offense on Saturday and Sanders was involved, as expected. Much has been made of the Broncos' QB situation, but the primary concern for Sanders this year is the potential for the Broncos to be a more run-oriented offense this season, coupled with the possibility of Virgil Green or Cody Latimer siphoning some targets away from him. He's still firmly entrenched as the Broncos' number two WR, but it remains to be seen if that will lead to the same amount of production that it did in the past two seasons.

I believe Sanders is the better receiver between Demaryius Thomas and himself, but Thomas is the more physical of the two and can take more punishment, plus gets more targets. The quarterback situation is scary in Denver, but as long as that defense continues its dominance, the passing game isn't going to be needed to put up big numbers

Last season, Emmanuel Sanders finished 15th in receiving yards with 1,135. I don't see Sanders breaking 1,000 re diving yards this season with Mark Sanchez at QB in Denver this season.

See Demaryius Thomas.

Sanders might have a hard time topping 1000 yards for the third straight season in an offense that is expected to play a lot of ball control football with Dem. Thomas continuing to be the first read.
