Sanders caught five of eight targets for 91 yards in Monday night's 34-31 loss to the Titans. Sanders was not spotted for a potential red-zone touchdown early on, but he still managed to lead the Bills in receiving yards, narrowly beating out Stefon Diggs (89 yards) and Cole Beasley (88). Although both his teammates had more receptions than Sanders, the veteran's performance Monday continued his good recent play, as he's now topped 75 yards in three of his last four outings, scoring four times over that span as well. Sanders will strive to keep his progress going once Buffalo returns from its bye week to face the Dolphins in Week 8.
Sanders had three receptions (five targets) for 54 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 38-20 win over Kansas City. Sanders turned in his second multi-score effort this season, bringing his total production up to 19 receptions, 322 yards and four touchdowns. The veteran wideout has filled the Bills' need for a second receiver opposite Stefon Diggs to a tee, making himself fantasy-relevant again in the process. Up next is a matchup against the Titans' 20th-ranked pass defense next Monday.
Sanders caught five of six targets for 74 yards during Sunday's win over the Texans. The Bills were able to rest their regulars for most of the fourth quarter. Had the game not been such a blowout, Sanders might have had a decent shot for his first 100-yard game as a Bill. His production with his new team has been consistent, as he has exactly six targets in three straight games while posting 48-plus receiving yards in every game this season. Week 5 will be a good test as to just how much extra the veteran Sanders has brought to the Bills, who hit the road to take on the dangerous Chiefs, a team that beat Buffalo twice last season.
Sanders brought in five of six targets for 94 yards and two touchdowns in the Bills' 43-21 win over Washington on Sunday. The veteran wideout thus far has proven to be a solid fit in Buffalo's offense, as he'd come in with a 6-100-0 line through two games in which Buffalo's passing attack hadn't been emphasized. With Josh Allen exploding for his first big performance of the season Sunday, Sanders became a beneficiary, bringing in his first two scores as a Bill from 28 and five yards in the first and third quarters, respectively. Sanders still trailed the incumbent duo of Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley in targets by a significant amount, but his pair of scores from different areas of the field were encouraging with respect to his improving chemistry with Allen. Sanders will look to build on the big day in a Week 4 home matchup versus the vulnerable Texans.
Sanders hauled in two of six targets for 48 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. The production is pretty empty and the misfires show the veteran is still getting his rhythm down with quarterback Josh Allen, but brighter days are certainly ahead for Sanders in the Bills' high-powered offense. While he has a modest 100 yards and has yet to see the end zone through two games, he's also seen 14 targets already. Sanders' 50 snaps Sunday were second on the team behind Stefon Diggs.
