Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Over his first five games, Sanders averaged 13.3 fantasy points per (0.5 PPR). Over his last five games, he's averaged 6.1 fantasy points. Sanders has averaged just 29.5 receiving yards over his last four games and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 5. Sanders is likely to see Saints CB Marshon Lattimore on a good number of his snaps Thursday. Manny is a low-end WR3 this week.It's possible that Shenault gets a value bump now that Jaguars WR Jamal Agnew is out for the season, but we thought the same when the Jags lost WR D.J. Chark for the season weeks ago. Shenault hasn't scored a touchdown all season and hasn't exceeded 50 receiving yards since Week 6. He's just a back-end WR4 this week vs. the Falcons.
