    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Totals 62 scrimmage yards

    Emmanuel Sanders caught four of six targets for 56 yards and carried one time for an additional six yards during Sunday's 23-22 win over the Chargers.Sanders tied for the team lead in targets and broke off a 38-yard gain at one point, though he failed to do much with the rest of his touches. He has now topped out at 57 receiving yards over the last three games and hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 7. Sanders will look to get back on track against the Steelers next Sunday.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Plays 61 of 66 snaps, despite hard hit

    Emmanuel Sanders was on the field for 61 of the Denver Broncos' 66 offensive snaps in Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Texans, finishing the day with six receptions for 47 yards on nine targets.Though he's now locked in as Denver's clear No. 1 target after Demaryius Thomas was traded to Houston ahead of the Week 9 matchup, Sanders was unable to do much with the opportunity, as he finished with his lowest yardage output in five games. Considering that Sanders absorbed a rough hit to his shoulder from the Texans' Tyrann Mathieu at one point in the contest that netted the safety a personal foul penalty, it was at least encouraging that the wideout was able to remain in the game and play nearly every snap. Despite the disappointing production Sunday, Sanders' rest-of-season fantasy appeal should still be on the rise sans Thomas, though rookie receiver Courtland Sutton projects to see the most significant spike in value.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Held under 50 yards receiving

    Emmanuel Sanders corralled six of nine targets, totaling 47 receiving yards during Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Texans.The volume remained steady for Sanders in Week 9, but he was contained to just 7.8 yards per reception, his lowest per-catch average since facing Baltimore's ultra-talented secondary in Week 3. With Demaryius Thomas now out of the fold, Sanders may see an even greater share of the wideout targets than he already has (32 more targets than the second-leading receiver on the roster, Courtland Sutton). When Denver emerges from its Week 10 bye, Sanders and the Denver Broncos passing attack will take on a Chargers defense that has allowed fewer than 23 completions per game (among NFL's 10 best in that metric).

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Becomes lone veteran

    Emmanuel Sanders' fellow starter, Demaryius Thomas, was traded to Houston on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.If you look at what remains of Denver's active depth chart at receiver, it's Sanders and a bunch of young guys who are all in just their first or second season. The likes of Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick -- along with DaeSean Hamilton, who's day-to-day with a knee injury -- look promising, but Sanders figures to become even more of a focal point in the Denver Broncos' offense. The swift-footed veteran is on pace for his second career 100-catch season and has scored three touchdowns through the air and one each throwing and rushing this season.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Nabs four passes in loss

    Emmanuel Sanders caught all four of his targets for 57 yards during Sunday's 30-23 loss in Kansas City. He briefly exited in the third quarter with a shoulder injury, Zach Pereles of the team's official cite reports.Sanders set the Denver Broncos up for the game's first touchdown early in the first quarter, burning his defender up the sideline for a 49-yard gain. He was held in check after that. Sunday snapped a two-game streak in which Sanders collected at least 100 yards and scored. He remains far and away the most valuable target in Denver, but his production is dependent on a Broncos pass offense that has had some issues, especially with penalties. Sanders himself wiped out a key first-down catch of his own by pushing off his defender. Next up is a solid Houston defense giving up just 258 passing yards per game.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Good to go this week

    Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) doesn't appear on the Denver Broncos' Week 8 injury report.Sanders noted after the Week 7 win over the Cardinals that he could have finished the game if needed, despite planting his ankle awkwardly late in the contest. Now that he's not even listed on Denver's injury report, Sanders is in line to play Sunday against the Chiefs without any restrictions. Sanders looks like a solid starting option across just about every weekly format on the heels of back-to-back 100-plus-yard receiving games.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Believes he'll be fine

    Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) noted after Thursday's win over the Cardinals that he planted his ankle wrong during the end of the contest but believes he could have finished the game if needed, Zac Stevens of BSN Denver reports.Sanders believes he'll be fine going forward, and it certainly helps that the Denver Broncos now have 10 days before their divisional matchup with Kansas City. Before exiting the contest, Sanders had a monster performance, leading the Broncos with six receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown while adding a passing touchdown as well. He now has back-to-back games of over 100 yards receiving and is averaging 16.7 yards per reception in those contests.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Leaves game with ankle injury

    Emmanuel Sanders suffered an ankle injury in Thursday's game against the Cardinals and will not return, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.With a victory thoroughly sealed midway through the fourth quarter, the Denver Broncos have decided to keep Sanders and Royce Freeman on the sideline for the remainder of the game due to ankle injuries. The severity of Sanders' injury remains unknown but look for more information to come out in the next few days. Before exiting the contest, Sanders recorded six receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown. He also completed a 28-yard pass to Cortland Sutton for a touchdown in the first quarter, his first career touchdown pass.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Tops century mark in loss

    Emmanuel Sanders caught seven of his 10 targets for 115 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Rams.Sanders could have had a much bigger day, but after review, a would-be 44-yard touchdown was ruled down at the 1-yard line in the first quarter. The SMU product potentially cost his team four points as he drew a taunting penalty on the same play, and the Denver Broncos would end up having to settle for a field goal. The 31-year-old has emerged as Case Keenum's favorite receiver with 24 targets over the past two games and will look to build on that in Thursday action at Arizona.

    Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Targeted 14 times

    Emmanuel Sanders caught nine of 14 passes for 72 yards during Sunday's 34-16 loss at the Jets.The bulk of Sanders' production came in garbage time as the Denver Broncos struggled to get the ball downfield early in the game with the Jets' interior rush pressing down. After a promising first two weeks -- which featured 14 catches, 231 yards and two wins -- Sanders has slowed right along with this offense. He's still a solid option, having tallied at least 63 total yards in every game, and is unquestionably the receiver to own in this Broncos offense. As the season turns, however, that title becomes increasing ceremonial. Don't expect much more Sunday against a Rams defense that has been strong in keeping opposing offenses in check despite a number of shootouts.
