Emmanuel Sanders: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Sanders has agreed to a deal with the Broncos, NFL.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Sanders visited and came close to signing with several suitors, but Denver will be his eventual landing spot. He'll join a loaded receiving corps that already includes Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, and Andre Caldwell, and will likely fill the void left by Eric Decker, when he departed via free agency. Despite the competition for targets, Sanders should remain a quality fantasy option, as Peyton Manning has a knack for getting everyone involved. Sanders is coming off his best NFL season, where he produced career-highs in receptions (67), yards (740) and touchdowns (6).
Sanders is expected to sign with the Broncos, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Sanders is expected to leave the Steelers via free agency, according to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writer Gerry Dulac.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Despite Sanders having the best season of his career in 2013, racking up 67 catches for 740 yards and six TDs, Pittsburgh seems confident in having second-year receiver Markus Wheaton take over the team's WR2 spot. Additionally, the Steelers have suggested that taking a tall wide receiver (such as the 6-5 Mike Evans, out of Texas A&M) could be in cards when May's NFL Draft rolls around. Both Sanders and Wheaton are 5-11, and their current WR1, Antonio Brown, is just 5-10.
Sanders (knee) caught two passes on four targets for 26 yards in the Steelers’ 20-7 win over the Browns on Sunday.

Though Sanders (knee) practiced fully Friday, he is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Browns, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. "Right now it's 50-50, and hopefully my knee won't swell up," Sanders said Friday. "If it doesn't, I'll be in there."

Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette suggests that a decision on Sanders' Week 17 status won't be made until shortly before kickoff, which fortunately for anyone considering the wideout this weekend, is at 1:00 ET.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

A foot injury cost Sanders five games last year, but by that point he had already been supplanted by Antonio Brown as Ben Roethlisberger’s co-favorite receiver (along with Mike Wallace). At 5-11, 180, Sanders is small, but he’s got excellent speed, running a 4.4 40 at the NFL Combine a couple years ago and good quickness. With Hines Ward retiring and Wallace unhappy, Sanders could have an opening to take on a more significant role. But chances are he opens the year as the team’s No. 3 receiver.

2011

Taken in the third round last year, Sanders progressed as the season went on, emerging as the team's third receiver behind Hines Ward and Mike Wallace. At 5-11, 180, Sanders has plenty of speed, but his lack of size limits his red-zone upside, and Wallace is the team's first option for stretching the field. Sanders broke his foot in the Super Bowl but is expected to be healthy for the start of training camp.

2010

The speedy Sanders was taken in the third round of the 2010 draft. Considering the depth the organization has at the receiver position, he'll at best battle Atwaan Randle El for the third receiver spot. The number three spot served Mike Wallace well in 2009 (756 yards, 6 touchdowns), but with the team expected to run the ball a bit more this year, odds are whoever wins the day for the third receiver role will not match Wallace's output from last year.
