Emmanuel Sanders to be “full go” at practice within 2-3 weeks

Emmanuel Sanders will reportedly be “full go” at practice in the coming weeks.

Fantasy Impact

It’s welcome news for Broncos fans, as it indicates Sanders is likely to be on the field for Week 1. His quick recovery from a torn Achilles will likely limit the upside of young wideouts Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton, though Sanders has some WR3 appeal if healthy.

Emmanuel Sanders will avoid the PUP list to start camp

Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders will not begin the year on the PUP list, according to general manager John Elway. Sanders is recovering from a torn Achilles for which he underwent surgery in December.

Fantasy Impact

It is encouraging that the Broncos are optimistic about Sanders, but a torn Achilles is a significant injury, especially for a veteran wide receiver who relies on speed and agility. Monitor his status throughout training camp to see how he is progressing.

Emmanuel Sanders (achilles) confident he can return for Week 1

Emmanuel Sanders (achilles) remains confident he can return by Week 1 of the regular season.

Fantasy Impact

We should note that players are typically over-confident in their abilities to return quickly from injury. Sanders very well could be back by Week 1 but fantasy owners should proceed with caution. We're talking about a 32-year-old receiver coming off an achilles injury.

Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) not expected to return until mid-July

Emmanuel Sanders does not expect to return from his Achilles injury until mid-July.

Fantasy Impact

Sanders recently began running in cleats and working on lateral movements, so he's pretty much on schedule right now. The 32-year-old faces some tough odds coming back from an Achilles injury so it'll be important to monitor his rehab as the summer progresses. He's currently penciled in as Denver's WR1 to begin the season.

Emmanuel Sanders runs in cleats for first time since Achilles tear

Emmanuel Sanders was seen running in cleats for the first time since tearing his Achilles last December.

Fantasy Impact

Sanders tore his Achilles on Dec. 3, and he seems to be progressing nicely through the recovery process after posting a video to his Instagram account running in cleats. That’s great news for Denver’s new QB Joe Flacco, who will need Sanders to be as close to full health as possible this season with a stable of young and unproven wideouts behind him on the depth chart.
