Sanders caught five of eight targets for 62 yards in Sunday's win over the Patriots. The Denver offense struggled to generate big plays Sunday, but Sanders was able to shake loose for a 34-yard gain, helping pad his totals. Sanders continues to see his share of looks each game, but with the Broncos content to play defense and pound the ball, he hasn't been able to come through with an impact performance thus far in the postseason. Nevertheless, Sanders should be among Denver's leaders in targets in next month's Super Bowl.
Sanders caught five of eight targets for 85 yards in Sunday's win over the Steelers. The 28-year-old led Denver in targets, catches and yards Sunday, although the didn't post monster numbers do to the unfavorably windy conditions. Sanders remains a favorite target of Peyton Manning's, and he should be even more productive if the Broncos find themselves in a game in which they can't fully rely on the defense and running game. This could be the case next week, when the Patriots come to town with the right to play in the Super Bowl on the line.
Sanders (ankle) caught five of eight targets for 99 yards Sunday against the Chargers, though he also lost a fumble. Sanders' touchdown streak failed to reach three games, but he was still a very active part of the passing game, both when Brock Osweiler was under center and then later when Peyton Manning took over. Sanders has had solid games with both quarterbacks, so while it's still up in the air who will start in the playoffs, Sanders' fantasy value doesn't change much.
Sanders caught four passes (on five targets) for 67 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's overtime win against the Bengals. Sanders scored on an eight-yard pass during the third quarter, giving him a touchdown in back-to-back games. While his 67 yards Monday paled in comparison to last week's 181, Sanders' second straight strong performance should still please fantasy owners heading into Sunday's season finale versus the Chargers.
Sanders had 10 catches on 16 targets for a career-high 181 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Steelers. Sanders came into Sunday off back-to-back games with fewer than 20 yards, but he exploded thanks to the extra attention from quarterback Brock Osweiler, who threw his way a season-high 16 times. Sanders continues to have excellent upside, though the inconsistency makes him tough to rely upon. Up next is a Week 16 home game against the Bengals, and it remains unclear if Osweiler will keep the starting job after Peyton Manning recovers from his foot injury, which could be very soon.
