WR Emmanuel Sanders announced his retirement on Wednesday. The 35-year-old caught 42 balls in 14 games for the Bills last year but seemingly didn't garner much interest on the free-agent market this offseason. He'll retire a Bronco, where he spent 6 of his 12 NFL seasons.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report for Saturday night's Wild Card game vs. the Patriots. A healthy Sanders has played ahead of WR Gabriel Davis all season, but we're not sure that'll remain the case this weekend. Both Sanders and Davis are shaky fantasy bets in what figures to be a lower-scoring game in near-zero temps.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) put in a full practice on Tuesday. That puts him on track to return for Saturday night's Wild Card game vs. the Patriots. The question now is whether he'll get his starting job back from WR Gabriel Davis, who definitely provides more pop at this point. We'd avoid Sanders in fantasy lineups this week -- but his return does add risk to Davis' outlook.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Jets. WR Gabriel Davis gets another start.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) didn’t practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Jets. WR Gabriel Davis will get another start for Buffalo and is a high-upside WR3 in fantasy lineups.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. If he's unable to play vs. the Jets this weekend, Gabriel Davis would again be a high-upside WR3.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Falcons. That makes WR Gabriel Davis a full-time player for Buffalo – and a high-upside WR3 play in fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders is not expected to play today against the Falcons. That would clear the way for Gabriel Davis (just off the COVID list) to start once again. He has tallied 4 TD catches over his past 3 games.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons. After a limited workout on Wednesday, he didn't practice on Thursday or Friday. So it looks like Sanders is in real danger of missing this one. His absence would turn WR Gabriel Davis into a full-time player -- and an intriguing fantasy option vs. the #29 WR defense.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders missed practice Thursday with a nagging knee issue. That's a downgrade after he put in limited work Wednesday. If Sanders isn't ready for Sunday's game -- or even if he's limited -- WR Gabriel Davis would become an attractive option. He most recently ranked 4th among PPR WRs in Week 15 with a 5-85-2 line against Carolina, Davis' 3rd straight game with at least 1 TD. He missed last week's game on the COVID list but came off Wednesday.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) isn't listed on the final Week 16 injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Thursday, and will play vs. the Patriots on Sunday. His return is well-timed with Buffalo missing WRs Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis. Sanders will be the #2 WR behind Stefon Diggs but checks in as just a fantasy WR4 against a tough New England secondary.

Bills WR Gabriel Davis has been placed on the COVID list. So both Davis and WR Cole Beasley will miss Sunday's pivotal game vs. the Patriots. That leaves Stefon Diggs and Emmanuel Sanders as Buffalo's top 2 WRs, with Isaiah McKenzie likely handling #3 duties. TE Dawson Knox should also play an even bigger role than usual. It's a tough spot for QB Josh Allen against a strong New England defense.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. He's on track to return for Sunday's showdown with the Patriots. With WR Cole Beasley (COVID) out for that one, it'll be Stefon Diggs, Gabriel Davis and Emmanuel Sanders as Buffalo's top 3 WRs.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. It gives him a chance to play vs. the Patriots this weekend. Buffalo could certainly use him with WR Cole Beasley out for that one.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Panthers. That should turn WR Gabriel Davis into a near every-down player – and a viable Week 15 fantasy starter.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders has a sprained knee and will likely miss this weekend's game vs. the Panthers, HC Sean McDermott said. We'll look for a more concrete timeline for Sanders' return, but he's droppable in most fantasy leagues. His absence will turn WR Gabriel Davis into a near every-down player. He'll be a viable Week 15 fantasy starter if QB Josh Allen is able to play.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders injured his knee in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Bucs and was ruled out at halftime. His absence should turn WR Gabriel Davis into a near every-down player.

Bills TE Dawson Knox had surgery on his broken hand and is expected to miss 3 weeks, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Knox has a Week 7 bye, meaning that he should just miss the next 2 games vs. Miami and Jacksonville and return for Week 10. TE Tommy Sweeney is next up on Buffalo's depth chart but is unlikely to be a fantasy factor. WRs Stefon Diggs, Emmanuel Sanders and Cole Beasley should pick up extra targets with Knox out.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (foot) is active for today’s game against the Steelers. He was limited in practice all week, although we never heard any concern that Sanders wouldn’t be ready for the opener. Still, he comes with elevated risk in fantasy lineups.

Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (foot) is expected to play against the Steelers today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The veteran was limited in practice all week, and it's unclear if the foot will be a factor today. The uncertainty means Sanders is better off on fantasy benches for Week 1.
