Fantasy Profile: Emmanuel Sanders, WR, Denver Broncos

Emmanuel Sanders came to Denver last year after playing in Pittsburgh. He is a lightning fast and versatile weapon for Peyton Manning’s high powered offense. Sanders Shined in the Mile High City. He racked up a gigantic 101 catches for 1404 yards and 9 touchdowns. With those statistics he would easily be the number one receiver for any other team and is a great number one receiver for our fantasy line ups. Yet he is the second option behind Demaryius Thomas and at times last year he performed like one as Thomas stole the show.

Peyton Manning is getting older and slowing down a little. That being mentioned, he is still going to throw the ball a ton in 2015 because he is Peyton frickin Manning. Look for a slight drop in Sanders’ stats in 2015 because Denver will run the ball more this year but don’t worry about him, he is still a great target for your fantasy team in round three that has number one receiver potential.
