Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (back) left the game with back spasms for the team's final offensive series, but he should be fine to play in Week 17 against the Oakland Raiders.
Huddle Up: Sanders came through with 70 yards and two TDs on six receptions Monday night and should remain locked into Week 17 fantasy lineups as the Broncos still need to win Sunday to secure a first-round playoff bye.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 21, and is probable for Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins, according to head coach John Fox.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) is able to exercise as part of his concussion protocol. He missed a second straight day of practice Thursday, Nov. 20.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) is likely to miss practice this week after suffering a concussion in Week 11. He'll go through the concussion protocol, and his status for Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins will depend on whether he's cleared later in the week by an independent doctor.
Huddle Up: Fantasy GMs should be well schooled in the drill by now as they'll need to be on top of reports next weekend before deciding what to do with the productive wideout.

Updating a previous report, Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) suffered a concussion in the third quarter of the Week 11 game against the St. Louis Rams, but he appeared to be alert in the postgame locker room. He needs to go through the NFL protocol before he is cleared to return.
Huddle Up: Sanders is now in the NFL's concussion protocol. He should be considered questionable for Week 12.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders had nine catches on nine targets for a team-high 120 yards and three touchdowns in the team's Week 8 game Thursday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: It was most definitely Sanders' turn in the Broncos' pass-catching rotation Thursday night as he accounted for all three of Peyton Manning's scoring passes. He had his first TD catch only last week, so he was certainly due.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) is still not at 100 percent in his recovery from an injured right quadriceps. Sanders takes breaks during practice to avoid aggravating the injury.
Huddle Up: Sanders looked more than OK Saturday night, hauling in 5 passes for 128 yards and 2 TDs in essentially what was his preseason debut, and he'll have an extra week to get ready for Week 1 with most of the Broncos' regulars not expected to play in the preseason finale.
Posted: 8/22/2014 2:11pm et
Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) had a full practice Thursday, Aug. 21, and he could play in his first preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23.
Huddle Up: Sanders, with a current ADP of 32 among WRs, is going to need to play Sat. and get his in-game timing in sync with Peyton and Co. if he's going to approach his fantasy expectations this season.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) was involved in practice Wednesday, Aug. 20, but he is not working in 'live' setting yet. Head coach John Fox would not rule out Sanders' return from a quadriceps injury in time for the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23, against the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Sanders should be ready for the season opener which is the most important thing to fantasy owners. Sanders won't put up the kind of productions Eric Decker did and is being overvalued right now with an ADP of Round 6.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders is expected to play in the second preseason game even though he has been dealing with a quadriceps injury.
Huddle Up: The FA acquisition played in the Broncos' exhibition opener but wasn't targeted. Fantasy GMs, meanwhile, would like to see the WR get a little more involved with his new offense this preseason to better gauge the fantasy fit.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) does not appear to be participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 9. He has been bothered by a right quadriceps injury.
Huddle Up: The injury isn't expected to be serious but should be monitored by fantasy owners. Sanders currently has an ADP of Round 6. While that's a little overvalued, Sanders should have a productive fantasy season playing in Denver's offense as long as he can stay healthy.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (missed practice Tuesday, Aug. 5, with a strained right thigh.
Huddle Up: This is a new injury cropping up 2 days before the team's preseason opener. Sanders needs the extra work to get acclimated to Peyton Manning and his new team, so missing any amount of time is certainly not ideal.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders said it feels like he landed in 'wide receiver heaven' when he signed with the team. 'The thing that I like about the Broncos is there is really no No. 1 guy,' Sanders said. 'Peyton always goes with the favorable matchup and that's what I'm really liking about this offense. Any guy could go off for 180 yards or 100 yards with 10 catches any week, week in and week out, just based off of matchups.'
Huddle Up: Sanders seems to be undervalued heading into this season; after all, he's walking into the same role that Eric Decker turned into back-to-back top-10 fantasy WR campaigns. The Broncos offense looks to be loaded again this season, but there always seemed to be enough to go around and Sanders--as well as any fantasy owner able to snag him on the cheap--has reason to be excited.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders continues to show his quick burst and ability to stretch the defense, catching a long touchdown from QB Peyton Manning Wednesday, June 11.
Huddle Up: Sanders walks into a juicy role in the Denver offense, a role that made Eric Decker a top-10 fantasy receiver each of the past two seasons. If he's able to successfully fill that role, he'll be a steal given his current fantasy ADP.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders has been running extra routes after practice to improve his timing with QB Peyton Manning. Sanders wanted to go to a spread offense where he wouldn't have to block '75 percent of the time' and is elated to be with last season's top offense.
Huddle Up: Sanders hit career highs with 67 catches, 740 yards and 6 TDs a season ago in Pittsburgh, but should easily top those numbers with the Broncos, stepping in for Eric Decker, who finished with a receiving stat line of 87-1,288-11 in 2013.

The Denver Broncos have agreed to terms with free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers) to a three-year deal worth as much as $18 million. The deal includes $6 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Sanders, who notched career highs with 67 catches, 740 yards and 6 TDs this past season, carries some health risks with his history of foot injuries, but there's no denying his significant fantasy upside as the replacement for Eric Decker (87- 1,288-11) in the Peyton Mannning-led attack.

There are medical concerns surrounding free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (foot), meaning he may not get the type of deal he was seeking in free agency. He has a screw in each foot after injuries he suffered in the Super Bowl following the 2010 season. Sanders is reportedly seeking a contract similar to the five-year, $31.5 million deal that WR Golden Tate received from the Detroit Lions. The Pittsburgh Steelers are open to re-signing him, but he'll likely have to accept a much shorter deal.
Huddle Up: With quality receivers still available and the 2014 draft class deep at the position, there's little incentive for a team to throw money at an injury risk like Sanders. He may wind up back in Pittsburgh after all.

The Kansas City Chiefs are scheduled to meet with free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders (Steelers) Friday, March 14.
Huddle Up: Sanders, who hit career highs with 67 catches, 740 yards and 6 TDs this past season in the Steel City, would be an ideal addition to the K.C. passing game, which is searching for another weapon opposite WR Dwayne Bowe.

The New England Patriots could show interest in Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent WR Emmanuel Sanders this offseason if they are not able to re-sign WR Julian Edelman.
Huddle Up: The Pats, who signed Sanders to an offer sheet last offseason that was matched by the Steelers, might even make a run at the wideout even if they do sign Edelman.
