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.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) will be a game-time decision for Week 17 because of his knee injury. Sanders said he will play if he can't make the injury any worse.
Huddle Up: If Sanders can't play, Jerricho Cotchery will see more targets in the passing game but as usual expect Antonio Brown to get a majority of the looks from Ben Roethlisberger.

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) is considered questionable for Week 17 because of a knee injury he suffered in the team's Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: Monitor his status throughout the week if you were counting on him

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders (foot) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 20.
Huddle Up: Sanders will start this week against Cleveland and he could be a sneaky flex play with Antonio Brown drawing Joe Haden all game long.

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders (foot) will be limited in practice this week but is expected to play in Week 12.
Huddle Up: Sanders was limited to a season-low 1 catch for 2 yards before departing Sunday's game in the third quarter. He was replaced by Markus Wheaton (3-38), but it sounds like the roles will return to normal this week against the Browns. Keep an eye on Sanders' practice participation, though, just to make sure.
