Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Expecting plenty of opportunities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders expects the Broncos to get back to a pass-oriented offense under offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Nicki Jhablava of The Denver Post reports. "I'm excited. I believe it's going to be a pass-happy offense," Sanders said. "I had the opportunity to play in this offense my first year here in 2014 and had 1,400 yards. Hopefully we can simulate that some type of way and put up points and score and help our defense. That's our goal."

McCoy served as the Broncos' offensive coordinator from 2009 to 2012 before passing his system on to Adam Gase, who directed the Denver offense in 2013 and 2014. Sanders joined the Broncos in 2014 and immediately enjoyed what still stands as his finest season, catching 101 passes for 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns on 141 targets -- all career-high marks. He fell far shy of those marks in Gary Kubiak and Rick Dennison's more run-oriented offense the past two seasons, but the change probably had more to do with quarterback play than scheme. While it appears Sanders will again have to catch passes from Trevor Siemian and/or Paxton Lynch, the return of McCoy -- in combination with an improved offensive line -- does justify optimism that Denver's passing game will take a big step forward from last season. Sanders should be healthy for offseason workouts, as he played in the Pro Bowl in late January despite injuring his foot in Week 17.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Tops 1,000 yards again
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Sanders (foot) caught 79 passes (on 139 targets) for 1,032 yards and five touchdowns in 16 games played this season.

Sanders was forced into exit early from Denver's season finale due a foot injury, but that only came after he put together a third straight 1,000-yard season since joining the Broncos. Despite dealing with the respective growing pains of quarterbacks Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, Sanders' 79 catches and 139 targets both marked the second-most over his seven-year career. Coming off a three-year, $33 million extension signed in September, the veteran has also now scored at least five touchdowns in four consecutive campaigns. With former Chargers coach Mike McCoy slated to become the Broncos offensive coordinator, Sanders could benefit from an attacking scheme build around the team's playmakers, The Denver Post reports, particularly if the club's quarterback play improves in 2017.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Confined to one catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanders caught a 26-yard pass in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.

Sanders failed to come anywhere in the vicinity of his 162-yard Week 12 outing against the Chiefs, seeing season lows in catches, yards and targets. With all eyes now on 2017, rookie Paxton Lynch is rumored to be in line for playing time. In Lynch's two starts this season, Sanders has caught 10 passes for 108 yards. He also hauled in Lynch's first career touchdown when the rookie was thrust into action in Week 4 against Tampa Bay.

Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Quiet in loss to New England
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Sanders caught three of six targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 16-3 loss to the Patriots.

Sanders was shut out in the first half but didn't do much in the second half either, as the entire Broncos offense struggled to move the ball. Meanwhile, Demaryius Thomas was able to produce, catching seven of 11 targets for 91 yards. In Week 16, Sanders will face the Chiefs in Kansas City.
