SF WR Emmanuel Sanders - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 at Seattle Seahawks
Emmanuel Sanders had three catches for 61 yards last week against the Rams in a close victory for the 49ers. Sanders has been a nice outside threat for Jimmy Garoppolo since arriving during a midseason trade, but his fantasy numbers have been largely inconsistent. He’s three games removed from a big game against the Saints, and only two removed from a nine-yard stinker against the Falcons.
This week, there’s some upside against the Seahawks, who rank 21st in aFPA to opposing wide receivers, and he should be considered a fringe WR2 option in a good matchup. He’s far from a sure thing, but the 49ers are going to need to win this game to have a shot at a first-round bye, so expect both teams to come out fighting. Sanders has playoff experience, and this game should play like a postseason matchup.
