  • Sanders hauled in six of nine targets for 48 yards in the Saints' 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday. The veteran led the team in targets and receptions, but his short-yardage gains led to little production in the loss. After a mildly-productive first season in New Orleans, Sanders is set to return for at least one more year, when he should be a primary weapon in the passing game, no matter who is throwing him passes.

  • Sanders caught two of three targets for three yards in the Saints' 21-9 win over the Bears on Sunday. The veteran wideout entered the game riding a streak of four games with at least 60 receiving yards or a touchdown, but he fell completely flat in this one, ceding work to two recently-activated receivers, Deonte Harris and Michael Thomas. Sanders' production will likely be hit-or-miss with those two players back in the fold, but a friendly matchup with Tampa Bay in the NFC divisional round presents a bounce-back opportunity for Sanders.

  • Sanders caught nine of 13 targets for 63 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 33-7 win over the Saints. Sanders led the team in all major receiving categories and, despite averaging just 7.0 yards per catch, made a nice fantasy impact thanks to an eight-yard touchdown grab in the second quarter. The veteran has stepped up in a big way over the last three games, averaging 5.7 receptions and 74 yards per contest. Sanders finishes the regular season with respectable totals of 61 receptions, 726 yards and five touchdowns. Assuming Michael Thomas (ankle) returns for the wild-card round matchup with the Bears, Sanders will step back into a secondary role.

  • Sanders secured four of five targets for 83 yards and rushed once for 12 yards in the Saints' 52-33 win over the Vikings on Friday. The veteran was due for a bigger role with both Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith on injured reserve with ankle sprains, and he indeed led the Saints in receptions and receiving yards while tying for the team lead in targets. However, with Alvin Kamara's 155-yard, six-touchdown effort spearheading a 264-yard rushing day for New Orleans, Sanders generated solid but not spectacular numbers. The 33-year-old has now upped his yardage total over that of the prior game in four consecutive contests, however, and he'll look to finish off the regular season strong against the Panthers in a Week 17 road battle.

  • Sanders caught four of five targets for 76 yards in Sunday's 32-29 loss to Kansas City. With Michael Thomas (ankle) out, Sanders led the Saints in catches and receiving yards -- though Alvin Kamara saw one more target -- and posted his best yardage total since Week 2. Tre'Quan Smith also suffered an ankle injury Sunday, potentially leaving Sanders as the only experienced wideout on the New Orleans roster heading into Week 16's meeting with the Vikings.
