Beat: Emmanuel Sanders to be 'heavily involved' in Denver offense

Cecil Lammey, ESPN - [Full Article]

Broncos beat writer Cecil Lammey believes that WR Emmanuel Sanders will be heavily involved in the offense, and if Cody Latimer phases anyone out of the offense, it will be Wes Welker, not Sanders.

Fantasy Impact: 

Sanders was the #35 WR in 2013, when he saw WR2 targets (112) for the Steelers. Eric Decker (138) and Wes Welker (111) saw a combined 249 targets as Denver's WR2 and WR3. With Decker gone, Welker (and TE Julius Thomas) could see a bit more work, but Sanders should be stepping into a big role if he can beat out Andre Caldwell and hold off rookie Cody Latimer. As OC Adam Gase said, Sanders is a good fit for his system and is versatile to play both inside and outside. He is very quick and is adept at making people miss, so he should thrive in Denver’s screen game.
