49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) put in a limited practice on Thursday. He should suit up for Sunday night's game against the Packers but will be a risk/reward fantasy play after being unable to finish last week's game against the Cardinals.

49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He didn’t practice all week, but we haven’t heard anything about him being limited today. Rib injuries tend to be pain-tolerance issues. Sanders comes with added risk in Week 11 fantasy lineups but also boasts plenty of upside against an Arizona defense he beat for 112 yards and a score just 2 weeks ago.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders is expected to play today against the Cardinals. He missed practice all week with a rib injury that obviously adds risk. There's also plenty of upside to the matchup. WR Deebo Samuel remains a solid option even with Sanders in the lineup. The Niners will be without RB Matt Breida (ankle) and TE George Kittle (knee, ankle), each of whom entered the weekend doubtful.

49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He didn't practice all week, but the team is evidently still holding out hope that he'll be able to give it a go. Niners-Cards doesn't kick off until 4:05 pm ET, but we'll look for an update on Sanders' status Sunday morning. His absence would leave Deebo Samuel as San Francisco's #1 WR.

49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) didn't practice on Wednesday. His injury reportedly isn't serious, but HC Kyle Shanahan labeled him a game-time decision for this weekend's tilt with the Cardinals. Sanders' absence would leave rookie Deebo Samuel as San Francisco's #1 WR.

Injury Predictor

Sanders added another 2 injuries in 2017, brining his NFL tally to 16 documented issues over 8 seasons. He lost 4 games to ankle problems last year: a midseason sprain and then a December bone bruise -- both on the right side. Two seasons before, a left ankle sprain cost him a game. Sanders enters 2018 healthy at age 31 and looks like a value in fantasy football drafts. Rookie WR Courtland Sutton adds target competition that has been missing beyond the top 2 wideouts in Denver.
