Emmanuel Sanders officially signs one-year deal with the Bills

Emmanuel Sanders officially signed his one-year, $6 million contract with the Bills on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Sanders was officially released by the Saints on Wednesday, clearing the way to sign his new deal with Buffalo. The 34-year-old WR hauled in 61 receptions on 82 targets for 726 yards and five touchdowns across 14 games for the Saints in 2020. Sanders will replace recently released John Brown and compete for targets with a loaded Buffalo wide receiver group that includes Stefon Diggs, Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis. The veteran WR will mainly be an option in deep-league formats.

Emmanuel Sanders reportedly in ‘serious talks’ with the Bills

Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network is reporting that Bills are in serious talks with WR Emmanuel Sanders.

Fantasy Impact

Emmanuel Sanders being released by Saints

The Saints are releasing veteran WR Emmanuel Sanders, per source.

Fantasy Impact

Sanders announced his release on his Instagram page and called himself a “free agent” so it doesn’t sound like the soon-to-be-34 year old is ready to hang up the cleats just yet. With Jared Cook and Sanders both now gone, expect more opportunities in the passing game for Adam Trautman and Tre’Quan Smith. The Saints will also likely add some receiver depth via the NFL Draft and possibly even free agency.

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.
