Emmanuel Sanders leads Broncos with 108 yards in Week 2
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders led the team in receiving in Week 2, catching eight of his nine targets for 108 yards in his team's 24-17 win over the Chiefs.

Sanders racked up 48 yards on the first play from scrimmage and continued to be a key option for Peyton Manning, leading the offense in targets despite not securing one of the team's three touchdowns. He may have a tougher time finding a large amount of targets moving forward, as Wes Welker could return to action in Week 3 pending a potential agreement by the league and the NFLPA. The Broncos travel to Seattle to face a tough Seattle defense.

Emmanuel Sanders makes strong first impression
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Broncos free agent acquisition Emmanuel Sanders made a nice splash in his debut, catching six passes for 77 yards and adding 11 yards on an end-around in the win over the Colts. Sanders drew nine targets, second on the team behind Demaryius Thomas.

Peyton Manning looked to Sanders early and often. The first three plays from scrimmage were completions to Sanders, yielding 21 yards. In the second quarter, Sanders laid out for a 40-yard grab off play action.

With Wes Welker suspended three more games, Sanders should stay heavily involved when Denver hosts the Chiefs in Week 2.

Thigh not an issue for Emmanuel Sanders in Week 1
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders got through the week of practice without any issues with his injured thigh, and should have no problems playing in Week 1 against the Colts Sunday.

Sanders was a full participant in practice through the week, and is officially listed as probable on Friday's injury report.

Wes Welker's suspension elevates Emmanuel Sanders
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Wes Welker's four-game suspension is a boon for Emmanuel Sanders. The Broncos' free-agent acquisition already was trending up following his preseason debut (5 catches, 128 yards, 2 TDs in one half), but now he's guaranteed to be one of Peyton Manning's top three targets, starting Sunday night against the Colts.

The Denver Post expects Sanders to play outside when tight end Jacob Tamme is in the game, and move into the slot when Cody Latimer or Andre Caldwell enters.

Senior Fantasy Writer Jamey Eisenberg boosted Sanders from 17th to 10th in his rankings off the Welker news, while colleague Dave Richard had Sanders at 11th all along. Richard has been leading the Sanders bandwagon for months, and he did not expect Welker to play much coming off his third concussion in 10 months.

Sanders is in lofty territory now, especially considering he's never produced a 100-yard game or a 1,000-yard season. Look for him to erase both distinctions this year.
