Nov 15 9:40pm ET

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (ribs), who is questionable to face the Cardinals in Week 11, said he is going to try and play on Sunday. This will come down to a game-time decision, but this gives fantasy owners a little more hope that Sanders will play this weekend. You'll need to have backup options in place in case Sanders is ruled out late in the day on Sunday. If he plays, he'll be more risky as a low-end WR2/3. The former Bronco had a big game on Halloween two weeks ago against Arizona, catching seven passes for 112 yards and a touchdown. Rookie Deebo Samuel will be a popular starting option in season-long and DFS if Sanders sits out.

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 11.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders will be a game-time decision this week, so fantasy players will need to check the inactive list for his official status. He is a risky option because he plays in one of the later games. Players will need to have other options available if they want to keep Sanders in their lineup.

Nov 15 5:00pm ET

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) is listed as questionable for Week 11 against the Cardinals. This could be a true game-time decision, which makes things tough for fantasy owners with this game starting later Sunday afternoon. It'd be a shame if Sanders couldn't play in this juicy matchup, especially after he put up seven catches for 112 yards and a touchdown against the same Cardinals just two weeks ago. Sanders is a very risky WR3 this weekend. If he sits out, rookie Deebo Samuel should benefit the most, especially with tight end George Kittle (knee) expected to miss his second straight game. It's hard to trust anyone outside of Samuel and Sanders in this run-first offense. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo needs to be faded with Kittle doubtful and Sanders questionable.

Nov 14 7:53pm ET

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 14.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders probably will be a game-time decision for Week 11, so fantasy players should keep an eye on his status over the next few days. He will be a risky option since the 49ers play in one of the later games but would be a starting option in all leagues if he is active.

From TheHuddle

Nov 13 9:03pm ET

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders may be a game-time decision this week, so fantasy players should monitor the situation. He can be a starting option in all leagues if he plays, but players should have other options ready in case he is ruled out.

From TheHuddle

Nov 12 5:43pm ET

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (rib) is day-to-day and could end up being a game-time decision for Week 11 versus the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Fantasy Spin: Shanahan went on to say the injury is a "rib cartilage" issue. Sanders looked good for the short time he was able to play in Week 10, but it's not a coincidence San Francisco's offense fell off a cliff once he departed. If he is able to play in Week 11, owners will undoubtedly hope for a repeat of the 7-112-1 line he posted against the Cardinals two weeks ago.

From TheHuddle

Nov 12 12:20am ET

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) tallied two grabs for 24 yards before exiting in the second quarter with a rib injury. Its uncertain when Sanders suffered the injury but he was ruled out at halftime. Its a tough break for the 10-year pro who had emerged as the clear No. 1 receiver since joining San Francisco. His practice regimen on a short week will determine his availability in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals.

From RotoBaller

Nov 11 10:13pm ET

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) will not return for the Week 10 game against the Seattle Seahawks due to an injury suffered to his ribs in the first half.

Fantasy Spin: With Sanders on the shelf it will be Kendrick Bourne, Dante Pettis and Deebo Samuel expected to pick up the slack in the pass game among the tight ends, especially with leading receiver TE George Kittle also inactive.

From TheHuddle

Nov 11 9:23pm ET

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) suffered an apparent injury to his right rib cage area in the first half of the Week 10 game against the Seattle Seahawks. He pulled up on a route and was seen grabbing at the area during the telecast before leaving for the locker room. Sanders is questionable to return.

Fantasy Spin: It's a shame for Sanders and the 49ers, who just acquired him. Kendrick Bourne and Deebo Samuel should see more targets among the wideouts.

From TheHuddle

Nov 7 12:50pm ET

Two games into his San Francisco 49ers career, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has established himself as a key cog in the passing attack. With 14 targets, 137 yards and two scores, his production has rivaled star tight end George Kittle (knee). Already the clear front-runner amongst receivers, hell make a fine WR3 in Week 10s Monday night tilt against the Seattle Seahawks. Sanders accrued a season-high 112 yards in Week 9 and draws the 21st-ranked pass defense by DVOA. While the Niners may hammer the ground game to keep Seattles offense off the field, Sanders 90-plus percent snap share and versatility should garner him enough opportunities to start in any fantasy format.

From RotoBaller

Nov 1 2:13am ET

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders had seven receptions for 112 yards and a touchdown during the team's 28-25 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, Oct. 31.

Fantasy Spin: So far, so good for Sanders transitioning to the 49ers offense as he scored Sunday and now led the team in receptions and yards while adding another TD on Thursday. The veteran will get a little extra time to immerse himself in the playbook before a Week 10 showdown with the Seahawks, but he's looking like a possible WR3 going forward.

From TheHuddle

Nov 1 12:50am ET

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders roped seven of nine targets for 112 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals. In his second game with the team, Sanders continued demonstrating his solid rapport with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, gaining several chunk plays early in the contest. He was rewarded with a 1-yard bunny to end the first half for his second score in as many games. Sanders led the team in targets on Thursday and now has 14 targets across two contests in red and gold. Clearly emerging as the Niners best wideout, he should keep dominating snap share and is firmly in the weekly WR3 conversation. Hell get a middling Seattle Seahawks pass defense in Week 10.

From RotoBaller

Oct 28 3:13am ET

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders caught four passes for 25 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Spin: It was a solid debut for Sanders, who got the scoring started for the Niners, but it's still TBD as to what kind of numbers he'll put up in a passing game that defers to the run most weeks. For now, he's a WR3 at best.

From TheHuddle

Oct 27 7:20pm ET

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders caught four of five targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers. The newly-acquired veteran paid immediate dividends, snatching a 4-yard pass on the opening drive for a score. Sanders didnt factor into the game much afterwards, as the Niners leaned heavily on their dominant run game in a 51-13 blowout. Sanders role figures to continue growing as he learns the offense and will be a WR4 on in Week 9 on Thursday Night Football against the Los Angeles Rams.

From RotoBaller

Oct 26 11:33am ET

The Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints had interest in acquiring WR Emmanuel Sanders from the Denver Broncos before he was ultimately traded to the San Francisco 49ers.

From TheHuddle

Oct 25 6:03pm ET

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders is going to play 'a lot' in Week 8 against the Carolina Panthers, according to comments made by head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders doesn't figure to lose much in terms of fantasy value going from the Denver Broncos to the 49ers, but he's going to have his work cut out for him in terms of matchups the rest of the way. Between now and Week 16, he'll be greeted often by the likes of James Bradberry, Patrick Peterson (twice), Jaire Alexander, Marlon Humphrey, Marshon Lattimore and Jalen Ramsey. It's a brutal stretch that figures to keep him in the low-end WR3 conversation at best moving forward.

From TheHuddle

Oct 25 5:00pm ET

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that newly acquired wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders will play "a lot" in his team debut in Week 8 against the Panthers. It could just be coach speak, as Sanders had very little time to learn and digest the team's playbook after coming over in a trade from Denver on Monday. Still, Sanders should immediately become the team's No. 1 receiver over Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis. But how much can we expect from an aging receiver in a new offense right away? It's not like quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been very good this year, either. Treat Sanders as a risky WR4/flex in this run-first offense until we see evidence that he'll be used often.

From RotoBaller

Oct 23 10:13pm ET

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is excited about the addition of WR Emmanuel Sanders, and he said he is willing to help get the receiver up to speed quickly. 'I'll do my best to, but receiver-quarterback is a little bit different in what you have to learn, specifics and that nature,' Garoppolo said Wednesday, Oct. 23. 'But yeah, anything I can do to help him. I'm going to put in the extra time with him, whatever it takes, really.'

Fantasy Spin: The addition of Sanders gives the team an NFL-caliber No. 1 receiver, something they have honestly been lacking, with perhaps a bunch of secondary or tertiary options trying to fill the role. George Kittle is the team's leading receiver in catches and yardage by a wide margin. The addition of Sanders is great for the fantasy appeal of Garoppolo, although he still remains more of a QB2 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

From TheHuddle

Oct 23 5:10pm ET

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said he expects wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to make his team debut in Week 8 against the Panthers. The 49ers acquired Sanders from the Broncos on Monday, and he'll immediately become their No. 1 wideout ahead of Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis. The change of scenery will be nice for Sanders -- he was becoming a fantasy headache with Joe Flacco throwing to him -- but his new destination may not be as fruitful for his fantasy value as some might expect. Jimmy Garoppolo hasn't exactly been lighting the world on fire this year either, and the Niners remain a run-first squad. Consider Sanders on the WR3/4 borderline as we wait to see exactly how much Garoppolo will target him.

From RotoBaller

Oct 23 4:03pm ET

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders is expected to play Sunday, Oct. 27, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan Wednesday, Oct. 23.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders should immediately take over as the 49ers' No. 1 receiver for QB Jimmy Garoppolo. He should be viewed as a WR3 for his first few games with the team, but he could quickly ascend to a must-start WR2.
