    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Leads team in receiving again Sunday

    Emmanuel Sanders hauled in all four of his targets for 96 yards in Sunday's 20-19 win over Oakland.Sanders was held without a catch in the first half as Case Keenum struggled mightily. The pair quickly re-established their rapport on the first play of the second half with a 21-yard strike and followed that up by converting a third-and-nine to keep a subsequent drive alive. On the day, all four of the 31-year-old's receptions went for gains of at least 20 yards, and he has now led the team in receiving in both games to start the young season. He'll have a much tougher test on the road Week 3 at Baltimore.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Goes over 100 yards with a score

    Emmanuel Sanders caught 10 of 11 targets for 135 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 win over Seattle.Sanders easily led the Denver Broncos in all receiving categories, although fellow wideout Demaryius Thomas had a solid game with six receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown. Due to poor quarterback play, Sanders posted mediocre numbers in 12 games last season, but with Case Keenum now in the fold, there's a good chance that he'll be able to get back to another 1,000-yard receiving campaign.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Erupts on one drive

    Emmanuel Sanders caught four of eight targets for 61 yards and scored a 27-yard touchdown on an end-round in Friday's preseason game against Washington.Sanders accounted for nearly half of Case Keenum's 18 passes, comfortably topping Courtland Sutton (four targets) and Demaryius Thomas (three). The 31-year-old wideout had been having a quiet preseason, but he quickly turned that around with 48 receiving yards and a 27-yard touchdown run on a single drive in the second quarter of Friday's game. Sanders has a bit more competition for targets this season with Sutton in the mix, but the improvement at quarterback -- along with the likelihood of better health -- should more than make up the difference.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Will get longer look

    Denver's starters, including Emmanuel Sanders, figure to play between a quarter and a quarter and a half Saturday against Chicago, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.Sanders was held catchless in Denver's preseason opener against Minnesota, an outing in which Denver's starting offense played just two uneventful series. Sanders battled a nagging ankle injury and horrid quarterback play last season. In what might be his final season in Mile High, Sanders has a solid chance to rebound with Case Keenum under center. Saturday should provide some clarity to that end.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Looks quicker than last year

    Emmanuel Sanders is showing a gear that he didn't have last year, Benjamin Allbright of 104.7 FM Denver reports.In fairness to Sanders, he suffered an ugly ankle sprain early in the season against the Giants and probably returned to action too early to completely recover. In what might be his final season in Denver, Sanders offers a unique speed skillset that the Denver Broncos' corps of receivers doesn't have from its other established options. Look for Sanders to pick on nicklebacks and safeties more from the slot this season than in years past now that the team has a few young options to play opposite Demaryius Thomas on the outside.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Gets guarantees for 2018

    Approximately 80 percent of Emmanuel Sanders' $8.25 million salary for the 2018 season is already guaranteed, Mike Klis of 9 News Denver reports.There was some thought after the past season that Sanders may have taken his last snaps in Denver with the Denver Broncos eager to clear up cap space, but the team found room to keep the wideout around after shedding Aqib Talib's contract in a trade with the Rams. Now that he's expected to be back in the fold for 2018, Sanders will look to prove to the Broncos that he's still an ideal complement to No. 1 receiver Demaryius Thomas after an ankle injury cost Sanders four games and limited him in many others during the 2017 campaign. In addition to better health, Sanders could see his production bounce back to some extent thanks to the offseason pickup of Case Keenum, who should amount to an upgrade over the three quarterbacks (Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler) that started games for Denver a season ago.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Expected back in 2018

    Denver Broncos general manager John Elway said Wednesday he expects Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) to remain with the team in 2018, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post reports.With the Broncos eager to open up cap space to aid their pursuit of one of the top quarterbacks on the market this offseason, Sanders and fellow wideout Demaryius Thomas have been mentioned as candidates for trade or release in order to free up money. Elway's comments suggest the Broncos aren't leaning in that direction, however, indicating that the team may prefer to cut a high-priced veteran or two on defense in order to improve their cap situation. Sanders, who is said to be nearly back to full health following months of rehab from a significant right ankle sprain that nagged him in 2017, should thus retain a starting role during the upcoming season, though like Thomas, his outlook will remain foggy until the Broncos' plans at quarterback become clearer. None of the three signal callers who started games in 2017 -- Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemian (shoulder) and Brock Osweiler -- are expected to open the 2018 campaign atop the depth chart.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Nearing full recovery

    Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) has resumed running and is nearing a full recovery, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. "It's going well, my ankle is recovering," Sanders said. "Right now, I feel like I'm 95 percent."Sanders sustained a "major" sprained ankle and tibia contusion in Week 5 against the Giants and his recovery has been complicated by swelling, a limited range of motion and diminished strength, according to the doctor in charge of his rehabilitation. However, barring any setbacks, it sounds like he could be recovered in time for OTAs in late April or early May.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Finishes 2017 with just two scores

    Emmanuel Sanders caught 47 of 94 passes for 555 yards and two touchdowns in 2017.A bum ankle suffered in Week 5 limited Sanders to 12 games in 2017, and his general effectiveness when he was playing. Sanders, when healthy, has been arguably Denver's most dangerous target over the past two or three seasons and his hobbling 137-yard effort against the Patriots in Week 10 is a testament to his toughness. Sanders, like many of the Denver Broncos' veterans, will be the subject of speculation this offseason, but his quality play when healthy and the fact that the team would only save $5.6 million by cutting him and lose $5.4 million makes it unlikely that the team can find somebody better for the money. Sanders, like every skill position player in Denver, will see his value spike or continue downward depending on whether the Broncos find an answer at quarterback in free agency and/or with the No. 5 pick in the draft.
