Broncos Beat: Emmanuel Sanders may have to leave to get paid

Denver Post - [Full Article]

Broncos beat writer Mark Kiszla answered a question about the team potentially paying WR Emmanuel Sanders:

Meaning no disrespect to Demaryius Thomas, but Sanders is not only the best pass-catcher on the team, he is also the team’s top offensive player. But, the Broncos’ way of doing business doesn’t seem to be quite as generous now that Pat Bowlen is no longer in charge of day-to-day operations of the franchise.

Sanders is clutch. Sanders is fearless. Sanders deserves top dollar. But if he wants top dollar, I’m afraid Sanders will have to leave Denver as a free agent after the 2016 season to find it in another NFL city.

Fantasy Impact:

Sanders is ranked 27th on our WR list with an ADP of the sixth round. He and Thomas obviously come with some question marks because of the QB situation, but we still project him for over 1,000 yards and almost 7 TDs this year. He's part of a large group of WRs around that spot who are projected with similar numbers but may have a better QB situation.
