Recent Player News

  • Posted: 8/16/2017 1:14pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) left practice early Wednesday, Aug. 16, after falling on his shoulder. Head coach Vance Joseph indicated that the injury is not serious, however.

    Huddle Up: Keep tabs on Sanders' injury as the season nears, but for now his fantasy value is unchanged. He remains a viable WR3 even with a subpar quarterback situation.

  • Posted: 7/12/2017 5:40pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders said he would like to know the team's starting quarterback now if he was up to him but understands that the coaching staff will make the decision when they are ready. Sanders said it would be easier to build chemistry with the starting quarterback if he were able to practice with him all of the time.

    Huddle Up: Sanders should be productive no matter the quarterback because he has posted at least 1,000 yards in each of the last three seasons. He should be a solid No. 3 fantasy receiver in 2017 as long as he stays healthy.

  • Posted: 7/11/2017 1:46pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders has made some changes this offseason, including his diet. Sanders admitted that he was eating poorly but has been listening to his body more and physically feels like a rookie again.

    Huddle Up: Sanders is going for a fourth straight season of at least 1,000 yards and five touchdowns. Those are attainable numbers in 201, especially with offensive coordinator Mike McCoy back in Denver. Sanders is worthy of WR3 consideration despite subpar quarterback play.

  • Posted: 7/10/2017 4:23pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders said he believes he can produce with either QB Trevor Siemian or QB Paxton Lynch as the starter because they throw catchable passes. 'Both of those guys throw catchable passes,' Sanders said. 'When it comes to the deep ball, Paxton loves to throw the deep ball. Big, strong arm. Trevor, he loves to throw the out routes, the in-routes. He's a checkdown, all-around type guy.'

    Huddle Up: Sanders posted 1,032 yards with Siemian and Lynch last season and should be able to post similar numbers again in 2017 no matter which quarterback starts. He was posted at least 1,000 yards in each of the last three seasons and can be a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/1/2017 3:32pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (foot) left the Week 17 game against the Oakland Raiders due to a foot injury and he is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: With the Broncos eliminated from the playoffs and with a healthy lead in the finale, it's likely Sanders is done for the season.

  • Posted: 12/25/2016 9:06pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders finished with one catch on three targets for 26 yards in a 33-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Dec. 25.

    Huddle Up: The Denver offense was a disaster overall, and Sanders was one of the many victims. He should bounce back and produce WR3 numbers against Oakland in Week 17.

  • Posted: 12/23/2016 6:15pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (non-injury) was a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 23, and is not listed on the Week 16 injury report.

    Huddle Up: Sanders hasn't had a ton of huge games, but he is already over 1,000 yards for the year and should be a high-floor WR3 in Week 16 with WR2 upside in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 3:24pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Sanders has been a bit inconsistent over the last few weeks but has posted at least 100 yards in two of his last four games. He has been targeted at least eight times in seven of the last eight games and can be a solid No. 2 receiver in a majority of fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 7:02pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders WR Emmanuel Sanders hauled in 11 receptions for 100 yards and a touchdown on 14 targets in the Week 14 game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Sanders has picked up the pace lately, posting two 100-yard receiving games with two visits to the end zone over the past three games. He remains a solid WR2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 15.

  • Posted: 12/2/2016 3:52pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (thumb) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 2, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Sanders has been a main factor in the passing game over the last several games and has been targeted at least eight times in each of the last five games. He probably will lose some of his value with Paxton Lynch as the starting quarterback but should still be a No. 3 receiver.

  • Posted: 12/1/2016 5:42pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (thumb) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 1.

    Huddle Up: Sanders is coming off his best game of the season, and he should be high-upside WR3 in Week 13 against Jacksonville.

  • Posted: 11/30/2016 4:02pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: Sanders is coming off an impressive 162-yard performance in Week 12 and has received at least eight targets in each of his last five games. He should be a solid No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in all leagues even if Trevor Siemian is not able to play.

  • Posted: 11/28/2016 6:27am ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders had seven catches for 162 yards and a touchdown against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday, Nov. 27.

    Huddle Up: It's the first time he has reached pay dirt since Week 4 and the first time he has topped 100 yards since Week 3. The Jacksonville Jaguars have been really good against opposing WRs the last five weeks, so he'll have his hands full as a low-end WR2 next week.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 8:35pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders had four grabs for 68 yards in the Week 8 game against the San Diego Chargers, and his biggest contribution was an acrobatic 37-yard reception.

    Huddle Up: Sanders has at least four grabs in six straight games, and 68 or more yards in five of his past six outings. He should be considered a WR2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 9 against the Oakland Raiders and their leaky pass defense.

  • Posted: 10/24/2016 9:33pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (hip) pulled down four balls for 86 yards on eight targets in the Week 7 game against the Houston Texans Monday, Oct. 24.

    Huddle Up: Sanders did not seem bothered by a hip issue which had him listed on the injury report this week. He continues to look like the No. 1 receiver in Trevor Siemian's arsenal and is a solid WR2 in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 6:36pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (hip) was a full participant in practice Friday, Oct. 21.

    Huddle Up: Sanders has been a steady performer all year, and he has had at least seven catches and 80 receiving yards in three straight games. Deploy him as a WR2 against Houston in Week 7.

  • Posted: 10/14/2016 11:55am ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (hip) missed the final few plays of his team's Week 6 loss to the San Diego Chargers on Thursday, Oct. 13, but he is reportedly dealing with only a bruise and expected to be 'fine' moving forward.

    Huddle Up: While the injury news is a relief, the Broncos' entire offense - except rookie running back Devontae Booker - looked like it was stuck in the mud in the defeat. Sanders was doing his usual thing and creating separation, but Trevor Siemian wasn't interested in throwing more than 10 yards down the field until it was too late. Assuming no setbacks, Sanders will be a WR2 with a difficult matchup next week against the Houston Texans.

  • Posted: 10/13/2016 8:16pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (hip) exited against the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Oct. 13, and is questionable to return with a hip injury.

    Huddle Up: Sanders was running on the sidelines, so the injury doesn't appear to be anything to worry about over the long haul. He has been a reliable weapon for the Denver passing game and is a borderline WR2 in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 9:59pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders posted game-highs with seven catches, 80 yards and nine targets in Week 5 against the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Sanders has 80 or more yards and three touchdowns over the past three games, and he has looked more like the No. 1 wideout in Denver rather than Demaryius Thomas. He remains a must-start fantasy option in all leagues heading into Thursday's Week 6 game at San Diego.

  • Posted: 10/2/2016 10:37pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders hauled in eight receptions for 88 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets in Week 4 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

    Huddle Up: Sanders has posted 205 yards with three touchdowns over the past two games. He has 17 receptions on 26 targets during the span and has been putting up WR1-type fantasy numbers after a slow start.

  • Posted: 9/25/2016 2:34pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders caught nine passes for 117 yards and two touchdowns Sunday, Sept. 25, in a 29-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: It is encouraging to see Sanders establish a rapport with Trevor Siemian, something Demaryius Thomas also appears to be doing. Keep Sanders among your top receivers.

  • Posted: 9/7/2016 2:38pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Broncos Wednesday, Sept. 7, worth $33 million, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Sanders has played well since joining the Broncos and will continue to be one of the top targets in the passing game. He should be a No. 3 wide receiver in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/1/2016 4:51pm ET

    Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders complimented QB Trevor Siemian, saying he throws a 'very catchable ball' and he 'can make all the throws.' Sanders also said he liked the decision of anointing Siemian the Week 1 starter.

    Huddle Up: Sanders has basically been Mr. Steady over the past two seasons in Denver, registering 177 receptions and 15 touchdown catches over that span, but owners rightfully wonder if he can keep it up with a new quarterback under center. Based on this analysis from Sanders himself, it may be more likely than not that he churns out another productive campaign, which could make him an excellent value pick based on his average draft position. This also should provide owners some more confidence in Siemian, who might turn out to be a terrific bargain as one of the latter quarterbacks selected in fantasy.
