The Broncos have placed WR Emmanuel Sanders on IR after an MRI confirmed a torn left Achilles. It's a massive loss for a team with playoff aspirations. Sanders leads Denver in all major receiving categories, accounting for 23.7% of the team's targets, 27.5% of the catches, 29.0% of the receiving yards and 26.7% of the receiving TDs. Sanders' target share rose to 28.6% without Demaryius Thomas over the past 4 games. So there's a lot of meat on the bone for WRs Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton and Tim Patrick to pick. Sutton is easily the best target bet going forward and looks like a weekly WR3 with upside the rest of the way. Hamilton is worth adding in deeper leagues -- although it's getting late in the season to be rolling the dice on a guy like him.
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.
Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's opener against the Steelers after a limited week of practice. A fringy fantasy option to begin with, Sanders shouldn't be in lineups at less than 100%. His absence would turn WR Gabriel Davis into a near every-down player -- and a viable Week 1 fantasy play.
Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (foot) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We haven't seen anything to suggest the foot will be an issue this weekend -- but it'd be nice to see him get in a full practice on Friday.
