Draft note
by John Paulsen
He’s recovering from an Achilles injury, but he avoided the PUP list to start camp and was even participating in 11v11 drills in camp, which is a great sign for his potential availability for Week 1. Over the past two seasons he has played at a 78-949-4 pace, which are low-end WR2 numbers, but he was expected to score twice as many touchdowns in the opportunities he had, so he has upside from there. Considering he’s the 50th receiver off the board, there’s quite a bit of upside here.

DEN WR Emmanuel Sanders - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Despite missing the final four games last season with a torn Achilles, Emmanuel Sanders led the team with 71 receptions for 868 yards. Even with Demaryius Thomas still in Denver, in four of the first seven games last season Sanders totaled at least 95 yards. Throughout his five years as a Bronco, he’s consistently averaged around eight targets per game and should receive a slight upgrade at QB with Joe Flacco.

Fantasy Downside
Sanders has missed four games during each of the past two years. After posting 1,000-yard seasons his first three in the Mile High City, he’s averaged just over 700 yards the past two. With Trevor Siemian, Case Keenum and Paxton Lynch under center in 2017-18, Sanders averaged just 59 receiving yards per game and only 12 yards per grab. Now 32-years-old and starting his tenth NFL season, you’ve got to wonder if the speedy WR is beginning to lose a step, especially after returning from the Achilles injury.

Bottom Line
Sanders should be fully healed by Week 1 and will be the club’s top option in the passing game. With Thomas in New England, Sanders heads into the season as his team’s No. 1 WR for the first time in his career. He’ll be opposite of second-year player Courtland Sutton, who has potential, but is not the same caliber of player Thomas was – at least not yet. Sanders is slotted for around an 11th round pick, which is a good value for a deep threat that should see around 120 targets.
