Old Team: Pittsburgh Steelers
New Team: Denver Broncos
Gushing over the potential of Emmanuel Sanders in the Broncos offense? Get in line. Fantasy owners hoping to steal the former Steelers wideout in the late rounds will be greeted with a rude awakening, especially following his monster Week 3 preseason game and another concussion for Wes Welker.
Initially slotted as a 7-9th round pick in the offseason, Sanders is rocketing up draft boards, with some services even moving him from the 35-40 WR range into their top 20. The 5’11” receiver has remained healthy the last two seasons after missing eight games his first two years and appears destined for a 1,000-yard, 10 TD season in Denver, at minimum.
Don’t wait on him as your No. 1 WR, but feel comfortable with him in your No. 2 or 3 slot, or giddy as a weekly flex play.
