It was remarkable to see Sanders come back from an Achilles injury at the age of 32, though there were a lot of inconsistencies in his performances. He had three games with 100-plus yards, but also had 10 games with 41 yards or less. Going to the Saints, he's not going to need a whole lot of targets to produce, but betting on him being anything other than a bye week filler would be a mistake. The Saints offense runs through Michael Thomas, and you're not going to take targets from him to feed a 33-year-old.

Emmanuel Sanders agrees to two-year deal with New Orleans Saints

Free-agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has agreed to a two-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, according to ESPN reporter Josina Anderson on Twitter. It's a $16 million deal that can be worth up to $19 million, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact

Sanders was traded from the Broncos to the 49ers last season and had been linked to the Cowboys early in free agency, but he lands with the Saints on a two-year deal. The veteran wideout caught 66 passes for 869 yards and five touchdowns last season, and this move should only increase his fantasy value despite his advancing age.
