Emmanuel Sanders wasn't needed much last week as the Bills went on to smash the Dolphins, but he's still showing that he's a key piece of this offense through two games. He has a respectable 17.7% target share and he's averaging 41.5 Receiving Routes Run per contest. There's a path for Sanders to return FLEX value this week against Washington, but there are most likely higher upside options you can pivot to for your lineup. Sanders provides a safe floor, but he'll need to find the end zone to most likely crack the top-36 WRs.

Emmanuel Sanders catches two passes on Sunday

Bills wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders hauled in just two of six targets for 48 yards against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Sanders, whose biggest play was a 35-yard catch, has now caught six of 14 targets for exactly 100 yards this season. The 12-year veteran has yet to find the end zone in 2021. He's worth rostering in redraft leagues with 12 or more teams.
