Description: Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) has been upgraded to probable for Week 12 after practicing Friday.

Description: Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders (concussion) did not practice Thursday. He also missed Wednesday's practice.

Description: Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders headed to the locker room to be checked out for a concussion after a hard hit he took on the first drive of the third quarter and is not expected to return
Insight: Sanders had five receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown so fantasy owners will still have solid numbers today, but next week will be a huge question mark.

Hot11/10/2014 9:52:00 AM
Description: Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders caught five balls for 67 yards and two scores.
Insight: Sanders has scored six touchdowns in the past four games and has completely taken over the "Wes Welker role." The versatility of being a "move-the-chains" guy and a scorer makes Sanders a must start WR1.
 
Hot11/3/2014 9:15:00 AM
Description: Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders caught 10 of a team-high 16 targets for 151 yards.
Insight: Sanders was back to being a "move-the-chains-guy" after his three-touchdown game of a week ago. But he does it very well.
 
11/2/2014 5:20:00 PM
Description: Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders suffered bruised ribs making a tackle and is sitting on the sidelines as the offense takes the field. His return is probable.
Insight: Sanders has mostly been used as a "move-the-chains-guy" with Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas doing the scoring. So far in the Patriots game he's caught three for 43 yards.
 
Hot10/24/2014 9:22:00 AM
Description: Receiver Emmanuel Sanders was Peyton Mannings No. 1 receiver Thursday night catching all nine targets for 120 yards and three scores.
Insight: Sanders has mostly been used as a "move-the-chains-guy" with Demaryius Thomas and Julius Thomas doing the scoring - until Thursday night. He is averaging 90 yards per game receiving.
 
10/20/2014 10:49:00 AM
Description: Receiver Emmanuel Sanders had his second consecutive poor yardage total, but did score to make his fantasy numbers more palatable.
Insight: Sanders has caught just three balls in each of the last two games, after averaging 8.6 recpetions and 119.3 yards for the previous three contests.
 
10/13/2014 5:49:00 PM
Description: Receiver Emmanuel Sanders was the forgotten man in the Broncos receiving game on Sunday against the Jets.
Insight: Unless it is a close game, it is hard for Peyton Manning to share the ball enough with all his weapons. Demaryius Thomas had 10 catches, 124 yards and a touchdown, Julius Thomas caught two touchdowns and Ronnie Hillman ran 24 times for 100 yards. Sanders was third on the team with three receptions and 38 yards.
 
10/6/2014 9:46:00 AM
Description: Although it was Demaryius Thomas' breakout game, Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders still posted decent totals.
Insight: Sanders caught seven of nine targets for 101 yards, though none went for touchdowns. He's now posted three consecutive 100-yard games.
 
Hot9/22/2014 11:17:00 AM
Description: Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders is reaping the benefit of teams keying on Demaryius Thomas.
Insight: Sunday, Sanders caught 11 of 15 targets for 149 yards, but didn't get into the end zone. That's the difference between Sanders and Thomas ... Thomas can take any reception 80 yards for a score and Sanders is basically a possession receiver.
 
9/16/2014 2:10:00 PM
Description: Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders is tied with Demaryius Thomas for team high targets with 18 through two games.
Insight: Sanders has been a big part of the offense over the first two weeks with 14 catches for 185 yards, but he hasn't scored which limits his fantasy value. The return of Wes Welker will likely force a significant drop in his opportunities and when Welker is in midseason form Sanders may lose most of his fantasy value as the team's fourth receiver.
 
9/5/2014 9:06:00 PM
Description: Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders (thigh) is listed as probable for Sunday night's game against the Colts.
Insight: Sanders has been dealing with a thigh issue all week, but he was never in doubt to play on Sunday. He will start in place of Wes Welker and play in the slot on three-wide sets. We expect him to have a big day.
 
3/16/2014 9:37:00 AM
Description: Emmanuel Sanders' new deal with the Broncos should become official later today. However, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Sanders had already agreed to a contract with Kansas City before Denver came into the picture.
Insight: An anonymous team official has accused Sanders' agent Steve Weinberg of breaking "every rule in negotiations." Supposedly, Weinberg accepted a deal from the Chiefs before opening negotiations with Tampa Bay and Denver. He also blew off a meeting with San Francisco. Weinberg is already on thin ice after a series of violations in the early 2000s and this sequence of events should only further damage his reputation. Fantasy-wise, it's an ideal spot for Sanders who will now be catching passes from Peyton Manning. He'll be replacing Eric Decker, who put up 1,288 yards and 11 TD last season.
 
3/15/2014 9:24:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Broncos are expected to sign former Pittsburgh wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
Insight: The Jets, Jaguars, Buccaneers, Chiefs and 49ers had also been linked to Sanders. The 67 catches he logged last season were a career-high.
 
12/29/2013 11:57:00 AM
Description: Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (knee) is a go for Sunday's game against Cleveland.
Insight: The 26-year-old has a touchdown catch in four of the last five games and possesses low-end fantasy value, particularly with Cleveland corner Joe Haden out of the lineup.
