Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Hauls in three passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders caught three of three targets for 24 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to the 49ers.

Sanders nabbed some nice, short throws out along the sidelines from Trevor Siemian. The completions showed a rapport with the potential starting quarterback and that Sanders - often thought of as a deep threat first and foremost - can move the chains in Denver's offense in the short game.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Catches both targets in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders reeled in both passes that came his way in Denver's preseason win over Chicago, tallying 14 yards.

It was a short night for Sanders, but the adjusted offense that the Broncos showed should play to his strengths. A run-heavy attack typically hurts receivers' value. But a run-heavy attack accompanied by down-field passing is exactly what a speedster like Sanders needs to make an impact despite limited touches.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Contract talks on hold
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sanders' talks with the Broncos over a contract extension have been put on hold for the time being, The Denver Post reports.

Sanders remains hopeful of signing an extension with the Broncos, but since the team needs to agree to a long-term deal with Von Miller by this Friday, Sanders' negotiations have understandably been put on the back burner. That being said, Sanders' remarkable totals of 117 catches, 2,539 yards and 15 touchdowns since joining Denver in 2014 certainly make him someone the Broncos would also like to keep around beyond this season, which is his final year under his current contract. Now 29 years old, Sanders has elevated his game over the past couple seasons, and has reportedly added 10 pounds of muscle this offseason to improve further.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Averages career high 14.9 yards per catch in 2015
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Emmanuel Sanders nabbed 76 passes for 1,135 yards and six touchdowns on 137 targets in 2015. He led Denver with 16 catches off of 24 targets for 230 yards in the playoffs.

Sanders' numbers fell off from 2014 to 2015, a product of a drop in quarterback play and an increased reliance on the running game in Denver. It is telling, however, that it was Sanders - not Demaryius Thomas, who was Denver's go-to target in the playoffs. Picking up on that clutch play in 2016 will likely lead to a big payday for Sanders next offseason. Sanders' ability to remain consistently dangerous whether it is Peyton Manning or Brock Osweiler quarterbacking should help toward that goal. Sanders averaged 71 yards per game in Manning's nine starts and 70.8 in seven starts with likely 2016 starter Osweiler. Thomas saw a much greater difference, averaging 90.7 yards per game with Manning, but just 69.7 yards per game with Osweiler.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Totals 83 yards receiving in Super Bowl victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Emmanuel Sanders secured six of eight targets for 83 yards in Sunday's 24-10 Super Bowl victory over the Panthers.

The 28-year-old led Denver in targets and receptions, taking advantage of the fact that Josh Norman's attention was focused primarily on Demaryius Thomas. Sanders made several key receptions throughout the game, and was the Denver's leading receiver in the postseason with 16 receptions on 24 targets for 230 yards. With Thomas struggling late in the regular season and postseason, Sanders was arguably the more effective of the two over the second half of the 2015 campaign. Coming off a second consecutive 1,000-yard season, he figures to once again serve as a centerpiece of Denver's offensive attack next season.
