Emmanuel Sanders becoming a red-zone factor?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was already off to the best start of his career before Thursday's game, but he put it all together in Week 8's win over the Chargers.

Sanders snagged his fourth 100-yard receiving game in seven tries Thursday, and was finally able to combine that with a touchdown. Three, in fact, as Peyton Manning looked his way constantly in the red zone, including two touchdowns within the 5-yard line. That is good news for Sanders' long-term value, assuming it can remain a consistent part of the team's game.

The main difference between Sanders and the man he replaced in Denver, Eric Decker, has been red-zone proficiency. Decker hauled in 24 touchdowns over two season with Peyton Manning, a pace Sanders can't hope to compete with. However, he is also already on pace for more than 1,400 yards, so he just needs to become a passable red-zone target to be an elite Fantasy option.

Peyton Manning loves to spread the ball around in the red zone, so don't expect Sanders to come anywhere close to three touchdowns in a game at any point again this season. Still, with how big a part of the offense he is overall, Fantasy owners have to be thrilled that Manning finally started looking Sanders' way in the red zone. 


Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders scores three times in breakout game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/24/2014) Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders entered Week 8 with only one touchdown reception. He came down with three in a 35-21 victory over the Chargers at home on Thursday.

Sanders came down with a deep 38-yard reception late in the opening quarter. He capped off that drive with a 2-yard touchdown reception in the back of the end zone early in the second quarter. He beat Richard Marshall down the field for a 31-yard touchdown reception with 39 seconds remaining in the first half. He made a 3-yard touchdown grab on the opening drive of the third quarter. Sanders caught all nine of his targets for 120 yards and three scores.

Before signing with the Broncos in the offseason Sanders had never cracked the century mark. He now has four on the season. Sanders has 634 receiving yards through seven games. He'll look for his fifth 100-yard game Week 9 at New England.


Emmanuel Sanders looking for more


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) If Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders is to bounce back from a surprisingly quiet showing over the last two weeks, he will have to do so in Week 8 against a Chargers defense that has more than held their own against wide receivers this season.

The Chargers rank sixth in Fantasy points allowed to opposing wide receivers this season, and have done a fantastic job overall, with one exception. The Raiders -- yes, the Raiders -- absolutely torched the Chargers in Week 6, with three receivers going off for double digit Fantasy points.

The Chargers have allowed just one other receiver to score 10 or more Fantasy points, though they also just haven't faced off against many good passing offenses. The Broncos racked up 519 passing yards and four touchdowns against the Chargers last week, so they should have some success.

Sanders has at least 8 Fantasy points in five of six games this season, and should be able to keep that up even in the face of the Chargers' success. Keep him active in most Fantasy formats for Week 8.


No reason for concern over Emmanuel Sanders


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2014) It was good news, bad news for Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders Week 7 against the 49ers. The good news is he scored his first touchdown of the season, catching a 3-yard pass from quarterback Peyton Manning in the first quarter. The bad news is it was one of just three catches he had all day ... for only 41 yards.

The performance was especially discouraging coming on the heels of a three-catch, 38-yard effort at the Jets in Week 6. Prior to then, he may not have had any touchdowns, but he delivered three straight 100-yard games.

I still say it's nothing to worry about in Fantasy. You can't expect every game to unfold the exact same way. You know the Broncos are going to throw the ball. Demaryius Thomas has been getting most of the looks lately, but if he maintained his pace from the last three weeks, averaging 173.7 yards per game, for the rest of the season, he'd have nearly 2,400 yards.

He won't have 2,400 yards, and on the days when he falls of pace, Manning's favorite target figures to be Sanders. He has too big of a role in too productive of an offense for you to lose faith in him.


Emmanuel Sanders catches touchdown in Broncos' Week 7 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders caught all three of his passes for 41 yards and a touchdown in his team's 42-17 win over the 49ers in Week 7.

Sanders hauled in the first touchdown of the night, scoring from three yards out on an easy play after his defender was picked off by an official. The receiver was held quiet for the rest of the night, and he's managed only 79 yards over his last two games after posing three straight 100-yard performances. He'll look for a breakout against the Chargers Thursday.


Don't shy away from Emmanuel Sanders


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/16/2014) Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders had his first stinker with his new team Week 6 at the Jets, catching just three passes for 38 yards. It was bound to happen at some point. Particularly with Wes Welker back in the mix, Peyton Manning has a lot of mouths to feed, and Demaryius Thomas is an especially big one.

But as one of the league's most prolific passers year after year, Manning is especially good at feeding mouths. Even with Thomas going for a franchise-record 226 yards in Week 5, Manning still found Sanders for 101. It was his third straight game over the century mark.

If he did that every week, he'd have more than 1,600 yards for the season, and only one player, Josh Gordon, did that last season. It's not a realistic expectation for any player.

What's realistic is the occasional 40-yard game. I can't guarantee Sanders won't have another Week 7 against San Francisco, the league's second-ranked pass defense, but I trust the Broncos offense to overcome the league's second-ranked pass defense and expect Sanders to be part of it.

Long story short, I wouldn't think of sitting him based on his Week 6 performance.


Broncos pair both total 38 yards in Week 6 victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and running back Juwan Thompson matched yardage totals in leading a contributing contingent of Broncos to their Sunday win over the Jets.

Sanders caught three passes for 38 yards while Thompson rushed eight times for the same number. The latter added a reception that went nowhere.

Denver continues its season against visiting San Francisco next Sunday.


Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders has another big game Week 5


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Broncos wideout Emmanuel Sanders turned in a big game Week 5 against the Cardinals.

Sanders hauled in seven receptions for 101 yards during the contest. He finished tied for second on the club in receptions, and was second in receiving yardage. Sanders was a favorite target of Peyton Manning everywhere but in the red zone. When the team got close, Julius Thomas took the goal line looks. Sanders is still looking for his first touchdown this season.

Sanders will take on the Jets Week 6. 


Emmanuel Sanders posts career-high 149 receiving yards in Week 3


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders got off to a fast start, receiving a ton of targets in Sunday's Super Bowl rematch against Seattle.

With the focus on Demaryius Thomas, Sanders shined as Peyton Manning's primary target. He came down with a 42-yard grab on the final drive of the day, which led to the touchdown that sent the game to overtime. He caught 11 of the 15 passes thrown his way for 149 yards in a 26-20 overtime loss -- all a career-high for the 27-year-old.

Sanders has surpassed the 100-yard mark in back-to-back games. The Broncos will get a week of rest before returning to action in Week 5 at home against Arizona.
