Emmanuel Sanders Fantasy Football News 2018

The Broncos selected SMU WR Courtland Sutton with the 40th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. Sutton certainly checks the size and athleticism boxes. He measured 6’3, 218 pounds and registered a 94th percentile SPARQ score at the Combine. He was particularly impressive in the agility drills, which matches the tape. Sutton is extremely quick and agile for a man of his size. He’s coming off back-to-back 1,000+ yard, 10+ TD campaigns — although it’s worth noting that LSU transfer Trey Quinn finished with more targets, catches, yards and TDs this past year. Sutton isn’t a finished product — his route running needs work and he should be better in contested situations — but that frame and athleticism give him 1 of the highest ceilings in this WR class. Sutton is blocked by Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders for now and doesn’t project to have much 2018 fantasy value. But Thomas will be 31 in December and Sanders turned 31 this past March. Both guys are also cuttable next offseason with less than $3 million in dead money.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs. WR Cody Latimer (thigh) is also out. That leaves Bennie Fowler and Jordan Taylor behind Demaryius Thomas on Denver’s WR depth chart.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Redskins. WR Cody Latimer (thigh) is also out, leaving Bennie Fowler and Jordan Taylor behind Demaryius Thomas on the depth chart. Thomas is a volume-based WR2 for Week 16.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is "all but certain" to miss Sunday's game against the Redskins, according to insider Mike Klis. Sanders only got in a limited practice on Friday after aggravating his ankle injury last week. WR Demaryius Thomas should dominate targets for Denver tomorrow.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Redskins. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. Insider Mike Klis considers Sanders “on the doubtful side of questionable.” We’ll find out his official status by noon ET on Sunday, but Sanders will be a shaky fantasy play if active.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He exited last Thursday night's game with a bone bruise on the ankle that's been bothering him for a while now. We'll see if Sanders is able to get back on the practice field tomorrow, but he'll be a shaky fantasy play even if he's able to suit up against the Redskins this weekend.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders has been diagnosed with a bone bruise on his ankle, HC Vance Joseph said Friday. This is the same ankle that has been bothering Sanders since mid-October, but it's a new injury. We'll track his status throughout next week.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders left Thursday night's game against the Colts early with a right ankle injury and will not return. That's the same ankle he sprained in Week 6 before missing the next 2 games. We'll see how serious the issue is this time.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Raiders. He put in just 2 limited practices this week, leaving him as a risk/reward fantasy play in this plus matchup.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is expected to play against the Raiders today. He didn't practice on Wednesday and then was limited on Thursday and Friday, so it's tough to believe he's anywhere close to 100%. A plus matchup with the Raiders keeps Sanders in the mix. But between the ankle and a new starting QB, he's a risky Week 12 fantasy play.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is listed as questionable for this Sunday’s game against the Raiders. He’s expected to play but won’t be at 100% after putting in just 2 limited practices this week. It leaves him as a risk/reward fantasy play in the plus matchup.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Eagles. He was limited in practice all week, so that ankle might still be an issue. QB Brock Osweiler will definitely be an issue. Sanders is just a WR3 in this spot.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders is expected to play against the Eagles today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Sanders missed the past 2 games with an ankle injury but put in limited practices all week. He's fine to return to fantasy football lineups.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. He’s expected to play, but it looks like he’s still not 100%. That — plus QB Brock Osweiler — makes Sanders just a WR3 for Week 9.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) returned to practice on Wednesday. Barring a setback, he's expected to play against the Eagles this weekend. With Brock Osweiler under center, though, Sanders is no better than a WR3.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders is inactive for Week 8. He’ll miss a 2nd straight game with a sprained ankle. Bennie Fowler, who saw 5 targets last week, will remain in a starting role.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Chiefs. He didn't practice all week, though, and seems unlikely to play. He can't be in Week 8 fantasy lineups unless we hear good news on him tomorrow morning. With Sanders out last week, WR Bennie Fowler played 83% of the offensive snaps and caught all 5 of his targets for 45 yards. He's an option for fantasy squads dealing with bye-week issues.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) remained sidelined for Thursday's practice. He still has a couple more chances to get out there ahead of Monday night's game against the Chiefs but isn't looking particularly likely to be ready for that one at this point. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's "jog-through" session. Denver's first official practice ahead of Monday night's game against the Chiefs is on Thursday. "He's sore, but he's trying," Joseph said of Sanders. "He's a tough dude, so if he can go, he will." We'll continue to track Sanders' progress, but fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him at this point.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) will miss "at least" Sunday's game against the Chargers, according to insider Mike Klis. Sanders' status beyond that remains uncertain. Denver, of course, just had its bye in Week 5, so Sanders won't catch a break there. He's worth hanging on to in fantasy leagues, but you might be without him for multiple weeks.
