Draft note
by John Paulsen
Playing for the Saints, Sanders finished No. 43 in 2020 in 14 games played. His 1.99 yards per route run was 26th among 112 qualifying receivers last season, per PFF. NFL Next Gen Stats added, “Sanders ranked in the top 10 of average top speed within 1 second of a route with a get-off above 9 MPH in each of the last 3 seasons,” so he “has maintained his elite burst off the line of scrimmage into the later years of his career.” He joins a Bills’ passing attack that is quite potent, and will be asked to take over some (or all?) of John Brown’s production. For reference, Brown averaged 7.3 targets per game in his six healthy starts. Sanders is still a good player and if he’s seeing starter’s snaps for the Bills, he’s likely to put up fantasy starter numbers. As the 61st receiver off the board in the 11th round, there could be major upside here, though staying healthy will be key for a player of his age (34).

Scouting report

BUF WR Emmanuel Sanders - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Pittsburgh
Emmanuel Sanders was brought in to take John Brown's role from the last couple of seasons. Brown wasn't healthy last year, but when he was, he still put up good numbers. The problem is Sanders has had injury issues the last three seasons with three different teams, missing 17 games over that stretch.

In fact, Sanders has been limited in practice this week with a foot problem but is expected to play. The Bills passing game will be even better in 2021 and if Sanders can stay on the field, he should be a pretty big asset for certain weeks this season. For Week 1, we recommend you keep Sanders on the bench because he isn't 100% and is still new in the offense.
