49ers trade for WR Emmanuel Sanders

After listening to offers over the last week, the Broncos traded Emmanuel Sanders and a 2020 fifth-round pick to the San Francisco 49ers for a third- and fourth-round selection in next year’s draft.

Related players: Deebo Samuel, Dante Pettis, Marquise Goodwin, Kendrick Bourne, Courtland Sutton, DaeSean Hamilton, Diontae Spencer

Fantasy Impact: 

The 49ers now have a number-one target. The 9ers haven't got much out of their WRs this year: Samuel 15-169-1, Pettis 9-83-1, Goodwin 11-181-1, so Sanders should at least maintain his fantasy value with a chance to increase it as he gets more familiar with the offense.

Meanwhile in Denver, Sutton remains the WR1 with Hamilton and Spencer moving up the depth chart.
