Through six games this season, this is what Sanders is currently averaging per game from a usage standpoint: 9.5 carries, 45 rushing yards, zero touchdowns, three receptions, 20.16 receiving yards, and zero receiving touchdowns. He is now the RB38 on the season from a Fantasy Points Per Game perspective and is behind players like Myles Gaskin, Mike Davis, and JD McKissic to just name a few. There is absolutely no upside with Sanders whatsoever this season and it's never a guarantee that he's going to walk out of any game with more than five carries, but he absolutely belongs in starting lineups this week due to the barren RB landscape. The Raiders are allowing over 100 rushing yards per contest so far this season, so there's the possibility that Sanders has plenty of room to run here in this one. The question becomes whether or not he's going to get the workload. He can be viewed as a high-end RB3.
