Emmanuel Sanders adds different dimension for Denver
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Broncos are expecting big things from new receiver Emmanuel Sanders this season, reports the team's official website.

"Well, when you watch him on film from when he was at Pittsburgh, you just see that quickness off the line, the vertical speed, his ability to separate down the field," said offensive coordinator Adam Gase in June. "It's a different kind of dimension for us."

Added fellow receiver Demaryius Thomas: "Sanders is too fast. He's quick and fast at the same time. Some guys are quick, fast, and you've got Wes [Welker], who's quick. Sanders is quick and fast. But I think it'll be great for the team, because he can go over the top, he can be quick, he can go inside. I think it's a big pickup for us. I think he'll be great."

The Broncos not only view Sanders as a replacement for Eric Decker but also as an insurance policy in case Welker gets hurt since Sanders has experience in the slot. But when everyone is healthy, Sanders will remain mostly on the outside in Decker's place.

"They're different body types, and Eric had his way of finding ways to get open and catching the ball and making plays down the field, and making big plays underneath and creating," Gase said. "Emmanuel can do the same thing. It's just going to be in a different way."

Emmanuel Sanders thinks he'll catch at least 80 passes
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders believes that he can catch at least 80 passes thanks to the new style of offense that he's in, ESPN's John Clayton reported. 

Sanders' career high in receptions is 67, coming last year with the Steelers. They spent the first half of the season playing conservatively until they employed the no-huddle and began throwing it more. Sanders had four touchdowns in his last six games and 36 grabs in his last nine games.

Emmanuel Sanders enjoying 'wide receiver heaven'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders told Sirius XM NFL Radio he feels like he "made it into wide receiver heaven." Sanders can't wait to play with Peyton Manning in Denver's pass-happy offense.

He'll be a top target along with Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and tight end Julius Thomas.

"The thing that I like about the Broncos is there is really no No. 1 guy," Sanders said. "Peyton always goes with the favorable matchup and that's what I'm really liking about this offense. Any guy could go off for 180 yards or 100 yards with 10 catches any week, week in and week out, just based off of matchups."

Broncos like what they see from Emmanuel Sanders
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Broncos have been impressed with new receiver Emmanuel Sanders, reports ESPN.

The report says Sanders "fits what the Broncos do in their scheme, has the versatility to line up all over the formation and has held up his end of the bargain by putting in the extra time with (Peyton) Manning."

The report also adds that if Sanders stays healthy and in the lineup, he's a quality bet to have his first 1,000-yard season.

Manning sees improvement for Emmanuel Sanders
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said new receiver Emmanuel Sanders is adjusting to the offense in Denver.

"What’s always a challenge is not only learning a new offense but kind of unlearning your old one," Manning said. "He was very much a part of that system in Pittsburgh. I still do it occasionally now, I still call an old play that we just don't have in this offense. ... It’s hard to unlearn that offense, and so I know what Emmanuel is going through and it just takes time. He's kept himself in great shape. He stays out there for every play, and it’s a credit to him. We are making progress, and it’s important to put the time in."

Sanders, who left the Steelers for the Broncos, is expected to be Denver's No. 3 receiver behind Demaryius Thomas and Wes Welker.
