Player Notes
Oct 18 12:50pm ET

Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders finished by hauling in five of his six targets for 60 yards in the loss to Kansas City on Thursday. After dealing with a knee injury coming into this one, Sanders played the role of innocent bystander after watching quarterback Joe Flacco get slaughtered for eight sacks by the Chiefs Defense. Though this performance was a step in the right direction after compiling just two catches for nine yards during his previous two outings, he will continue to remain at the mercy of Flacco's inability to get anything going this season in addition to Courtland Sutton stepping up as the go-to receiver in Denver.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 16.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders should be good to go for Thursday, Oct. 17's game against the Kansas City Chiefs and can be slotted in as a WR3. He seems to have fallen behind Courtland Sutton in QB Joe Flacco's pecking order.

From TheHuddle

Oct 16 3:40pm ET

Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (knee) will play in Week 7 against the Chiefs on Thursday night after leaving the game early in Week 6, according to a source informed of the situation. Sanders played just 24 snaps in the win over the Titans, but he'll have WR3 upside in a game where the Broncos could be playing from behind all game. The 32-year-old receiver started the year strong but has taken a back seat to youngster Courtland Sutton in recent weeks. Sanders has 307 receiving yards on 25 catches with two touchdowns. He has just nine yards on two receptions the last two weeks, however.

Oct 15 6:03pm ET

Denver Broncos CB Bryce Callahan (foot) was listed as a non-participant in practice Tuesday, Oct. 15, while CB Duke Dawson (foot), OT Ja'Wuan James (knee) and DE Derek Wolfe (hip) were limited. DE Shelby Harris (ribs), OG Ronald Leary (shoulder), NT Mike Purcell (knee), WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) and S Will Parks (wrist) were listed as full participants. All of Tuesday's listings were estimates, as Denver held a walk-through as opposed to a formal practice.

From TheHuddle

Oct 15 2:33pm ET

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) was able to practice Tuesday, Oct. 15, and there is optimism he will be able to play in Week 7 versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Spin: This is about the best news Sanders' fantasy owners could have hoped for, considering he was removed from the game early in Week 6 and did not return. The Broncos haven't done a great job of making two receivers fantasy-relevant in the same game yet and figure to lean heavily on the running game Thursday, but the matchup is probably too good to sit Sanders for a safer option this week.

From TheHuddle

Oct 14 5:43pm ET

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) was limited during practice Monday, Oct. 14. The Broncos did not hold a practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders left the Week 6 game early because of the injury but appears to have a chance to play this week, so fantasy players should check on his status later this week. He has a chance to be a No. 2 fantasy receiver if he plays because of the opponent.

From TheHuddle

Oct 14 2:10am ET

Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders had his game shortened this afternoon as he exited with a knee injury. Before leaving the contest, Sanders only managed to haul in one catch for zero yards. It is not believed that the veteran receiver's injury is serious, and despite having a short week ahead of him there is a chance that Sanders returns to action next week against the Kansas City Chiefs.

From RotoBaller

Oct 13 7:03pm ET

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) suffered a knee injury during the Week 6 game and will not return.

Fantasy Spin: Fantasy players should know more about Sanders' status in the next day or two. DaeSean Hamilton could receive a bigger role in the passing game if Sanders misses time and could be a possible waiver wire option down the road.

From TheHuddle

Oct 12 2:10am ET

Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has had a few shaky weeks, proving to have an inconsistent role in the team's offense to start the season. Teammate Courtland Sutton has started to emerge as the WR1 on roster, pushing back the production of Sanders. The veteran receiver has shown that he has upside and can put up a big week, but a matchup against a solid Tennessee Titans Defense isn't the most enticing scenario for one of those breakout games. He could be approached as a flex in most leagues, but his ceiling is dangerously low.

From RotoBaller

Oct 11 8:03pm ET

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 11, but is not on the injury report for Week 6.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders has posted 10 yards or less in two of the last three games but has been targeted at least seven times in three of the five games in 2019. He can be considered at least a flex option in most leagues despite the recent performance.

From TheHuddle

Oct 11 5:53pm ET

Denver Broncos CB Bryce Callahan (foot) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Tennessee Titans. OT Ja'Wuan James (knee), S Trey Marshall (leg) and DB Duke Dawson (foot) were limited participants in practice all week and are listed as questionable. OG Ronald Leary (non-injury) and WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) were limited in practice Friday, Oct. 11, but no longer appear on the injury report. LB Justin Hollins (knee), DB Kareem Jackson (hamstring), LB Josey Jewell (hamstring), DL Mike Purcell (knee) and WR Courtland Sutton (leg) fully participated in practice Friday and were also removed from the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Oct 10 6:43pm ET

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) was upgraded to a full participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders will be a WR3/flex option against the Tennessee Titans in Week 6. He played 63% of the offensive snaps last week but saw just one target, catching it for a nine-yard gain.

From TheHuddle

Oct 9 7:03pm ET

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders was targeted only once last week and was held to nine yards. He likely will have a bigger role in the passing game in Week 6 and can still be a No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 6 11:10pm ET

Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders had a disappointing performance on Sunday afternoon as he only caught one ball for nine yards. Sanders lack of volume was a product of Denver leaning heavily on the run game for the first time this season. The veteran receiver will look to bounce back next week but has a tough task in doing so as he faces a strong Tennessee Titans Defense.

From RotoBaller

Oct 6 11:23am ET

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders may be available in a trade leading up to the trade deadline if the Broncos continue to struggle, according to sources.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders has played very well over the first month of the season and would help a lot of teams if made available. He probably can be considered a No. 2 receiver no matter where he plays.

From TheHuddle

Oct 5 7:00pm ET

Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders continues to find production in the Broncos offense, despite having a rising receiver alongside him in Courtland Sutton. The veteran pass-catcher had a solid Week 4 performance that he looks to replicate in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Chargers. Omitting one game against the Green Bay Packers, Sanders has been consistent and should be in flex spots this week.

From RotoBaller

Oct 4 4:33pm ET

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 4, but is not on the injury report for Week 5.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders has posted at least 85 yards in three of the four games this season and has been targeted 34 times over that span. He can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 fantasy receiver this week.

From TheHuddle

Oct 4 4:23pm ET

Denver Broncos CB Bryce Callahan (foot) was held out of practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 5 versus the Los Angeles Chargers. LB Josey Jewell (hamstring) also did not practice all week but is listed as questionable. OT Ja'Wuan James (knee) was limited in practice all week, while Kareem Jackson (hamstring) was upgraded to full participation Friday, Oct. 4; both players are listed as questionable. WR Emmanuel Sanders (quad) was limited in practice Friday but no longer appears on the injury report. OG Ronald Leary (non-injury), DE Derek Wolfe (ankle), DB Duke Dawson (ankle) and LB Joseph Jones (triceps) fully participated in practice Friday and have also been removed from the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Oct 3 7:03pm ET

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (quad) practiced in full Thursday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders should be clear for Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. He's a fringe WR2 who is being held back by the play of QB Joe Flacco.

From TheHuddle

Oct 3 3:00pm ET

Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (quadriceps) said his quadriceps is feeling better and he'll practice in full on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. Sanders is just playing it safe with his quad injury. He will play in Week 5 against the Chargers on the road. Sanders has shown that last year's Achilles injury is behind him, and he's been a favorite target of quarterback Joe Flacco's through four weeks, especially in the red zone. Sanders does have a tough matchup potentially in cornerback Casey Hayward this week, but he still remains in play as a high-end WR3.
