Emmanuel Sanders secured 7-of-15 targets for 46 yards in the Broncos' Divisional Round loss to the Colts.
Peyton Manning tried to feed Sanders at least three "go" routes in the second quarter, but each was severely overthrown. The Broncos only had moderate success in the passing game when they focused on short stuff, but by then it was too late. Sanders turned in a career-best receiving line of 101-1,404-9 in 2014, being utilized as a featured receiver for the first time in his career. One of GM John Elway's very best free agent additions, Sanders is under contract through 2016. He'll turn 28 in March. Jan 11 - 8:37 PM

Emmanuel Sanders caught six passes for 73 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Raiders.

Sanders' hip was not an issue, but Peyton Manning's continued arm woes and a conservative Broncos offense is. After getting double-digit targets four times in the first 12 weeks, Sanders has been down at 6.2 per game for the last month. Still, Manny definitely felt the "Peyton Effect" in Year 1 as a Bronco. He played 4 years with Big Ben and career-high was 67-740-6. In first year with Peyton Manning, Sanders went 101-1404-9. The Broncos have a bye as the AFC's No. 2 seed.

Emmanuel Sanders (hip) is active for Sunday's Week 17 game against the Raiders, as expected.

Sanders was never in danger of missing this must-win game for the Broncos, especially after he practiced every day this week. Ronnie Hillman (foot) is also active for the first time since his injury, meaning Juwan Thompson is a scratch. The rest of the Broncos' inactives: TJ Ward, Brandon Marshall, Paul Cornick, O'Brien Schofield, Dominique Jones and Mitch Unrein.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed Emmanuel Sanders (hip) is fully expected to play in Sunday's game against the Raiders.

The Broncos listed Sanders as questionable even though he got some practice in every day this week. We don't expect him to be limited in this dreamy matchup.

Emmanuel Sanders (hip) remained limited on Thursday.

There's been nothing to suggest Sanders is dealing with an injury that will sideline him for Sunday's regular-season finale. The Broncos need a victory over the Raiders to ensure they are the AFC's No. 2 seed.

Emmanuel Sanders caught six passes for 70 yards and two touchdowns in the Broncos' Week 16 loss to the Bengals on Monday night.

He was targeted just seven times, finishing third on the team behind Demaryius Thomas (13) and C.J. Anderson (10). Sanders, however, did the most damage with his looks. He scored his four-yard touchdown on a quick slant out of a trips set to the left. His second touchdown came from five yards away. In between those grabs, Sanders reeled in a one-handed 33-yard catch with Terence Newman mugging him on the right sideline. Sanders proved to be one of the best bargains of the season. He and the Broncos wrap up the season with the Raiders in Week 17.

Emmanuel Sanders (illness) is active for Monday night's Week 16 game against the Bengals.

As expected. Sanders had been battling the flu all week, but looked good in pregame warmups. He's locked and loaded as a WR2.

Coach John Fox said Emmanuel Sanders (illness) is fully expected to play in Monday's game at Cincy.

Sanders was sent home from practice Saturday because he was dealing with flu-like symptoms. It's not a real concern as he will make the trip and will almost certainly be in the starting lineup. Lock Sanders in as a WR2.

Emmanuel Sanders (illness) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Sanders missed practice on Saturday with flu-like symptoms. The Broncos don’t play until Monday night, so he'll have two days to get healthy. Sanders will be a WR2 for the fantasy finals.

Emmanuel Sanders missed Broncos' practice on Saturday with flu-like symptoms.

Sanders was reportedly feeling under the weather on Friday and will be given Saturday off to rest. The Denver Post's Troy Renck said there is "no reason to think he won't play." With Peyton Manning struggling, Sanders has seen his production tail off in the last two games. Under the weather and against a solid Bengals secondary, Sanders will be a risky WR2 for the fantasy championships.

Emmanuel Sanders caught three passes for 53 yards in Sunday's Week 15 win at San Diego.

Sanders saw just three targets on a day Peyton Manning attempted just 20 passes. We'd call that a fluke, except Sanders saw a meager six targets in Week 14 on a day Manning threw 20 passes. The run-heavy style obvious cripples volume, and it certainly didn't help that Sanders got tackled at the 1-yard line on a slant Sunday. He'll be a WR2 at Cincy next week, but we can't guarantee volume any longer.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 08:03:00 PM

Emmanuel Sanders caught four passes for 56 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Bills.

On a day Peyton Manning threw just 20 passes and didn't throw a touchdown for the first time since 2010, Sanders owners should be happy they even got this meager production. They should also feel lucky Manny came out of the game healthy as he got laid out twice on hospital balls from Peyton. Expect a bounce-back game against the Chargers in Week 15, especially if Brandon Flowers is used to shadow Demaryius Thomas.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 07:33:00 PM

Emmanuel Sanders had six catches for 73 yards in Sunday night's Week 13 win over the Chiefs.

Sanders made three of his catches on third downs and got open at the short-and-intermediate levels. He's on pace for 109 catches, 1,536 yards, and nine touchdowns. Julius Thomas has a chance to return next week, making Sanders more of a WR2 option.
