Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, questionable) took full practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 10. Sanders is expected to play on Sunday night against the Patriots. Bennie Fowler is a decent pivot for Sanders owners who want to wait to see if Sanders plays.

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 9. It looks like Sanders will return this week. He averaged 4.3 catches for 71 yards and 0.29 touchdowns in the seven 2015 games in which Brock Osweiler attempted at least 20 passes.

Since 2015, in the 22 games in which Osweiler has attempted at least 20 passes, he has averaged 222 yards (6.29 yards per attempt) with 1.14 passing touchdowns versus 0.91 interceptions. Trevor Siemian wasn't playing any better over the last few weeks, so this is a neutral move for Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.
Emmanuel Sanders believes he is a week away and will play in Philly next week.
Of course, that means he won't play tonight on MNF against the Chiefs. Palmer's tweet added that original timetable was 6 weeks so next week puts him back before that mark.
Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders did not practice again Saturday, meaning he did not practice all week with his ankle injury; however, he is listed as questionable for Monday night against the Chiefs.
The questionable tag, by definition, is supposed to mean the player has a 50-50 chance to play. Generally, players who do not practice all week do not play, but it is not unprecedented for a player to still play after not practicing at all. T.Y. Hilton, for example, did it for the Colts in recent years.
Sanders owners, if they do not have a better Sunday back-up option, should handcuff him with teammate Bennie Fowler for Monday night. Hopefully, there is more clarity on this before Sunday kickoffs; however, prepare accordingly. Also, move Sanders into your FLEX as well, if at all possible, to give you more options for Monday night than just another receiver.

Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas (calf) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week. Thomas will be good to go for a big workload against the Chargers. He’s a borderline WR1 this week with Emmanuel Sanders out.
