The 49ers on Tuesday acquired WR Emmanuel Sanders from the Broncos. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that San Francisco sent 3rd- and 4th-round picks in 2020 to Denver for Sanders and a 5th-round pick. Sanders should immediately become the top wideout for a Niners team that has stunk at that position all year. The Broncos, meanwhile, figure to elevate DaeSean Hamilton to the #2 WR role. He currently ranks just 6th on the team in targets, behind Courtland Sutton, Sanders, the 2 RBs and TE Noah Fant. Hamilton has a shot at WR4 value in fantasy but not much upside beyond that in Denver's current offense. Sanders' outlook shouldn't change all that much. He goes from a run-leaning offense where he ranked 2nd in targets to the league's most run-heavy offense with TE George Kittle as its top target. The trade certainly can't hurt the shaky fantasy floor of 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo.
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.
