Expert 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Powell has over 150 yards combined in his last two weeks and now Isaiah Crowell has been missing practice this week. It isn't a certainty that Powell will get a workhorse role, but it will certainly be expanded enough to start him even against the Vikings.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Powell is averaging 18 carries over the last two weeks, but his lack of touchdowns and receiving production has severely capped his fantasy value. He's just an RB3/flex option against a Vikings defense that has yet to allow a 100-yard rusher and given up just one rushing touchdown to RBs.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If you're looking for a matchup the Broncos should exploit this week, it's the one Sanders has. He'll match-up with Budda Baker, the converted safety who's attempting to cover the slot and failing miserably at it. It's not something that just started this season, either, as he struggled in coverage his rookie season as well. On 72 career targets in coverage, he's allowed 56 receptions for 617 yards and three touchdowns. Of the 34 passes that have gone his direction this year, just five of them have hit the ground. When targeting Sanders, Keenum has a 108.2 QB Rating, so there's little reason to think he'll stop targeting him when his job is on the line. Sanders has at least seven targets in 5-of-6 games, which means he should have at least six receptions in this matchup, right? Put him into lineups as a WR2 and expect results.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Sanders has a tough matchup against the Cardinals second ranked wide receiver defense. He is a WR3 that does not have a ton of upside this week.
