| Like his partner in crime Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders continues to produce quality fantasy production despite shaky quarterback play and numerous coaching changes during his time in Denver. Sanders' numbers have dipped in each of his three seasons with the Broncos, but he's never finished outside of fantasy WR2 range. The tremendously high usage could allow both of these receivers to finish within the top 12 at their position in targets this season returning WR2 value in the process. What's interesting about Sanders is that his numbers in 2016 were decent, but they could've been substantially better if he didn't fall upon some bad luck. He finished in the top three of all receivers in inaccurate passes thrown in his direction. While Trevor Siemian isn't likely to suddenly become an extremely accurate passer, chances are that he'll make some sort of progression this season and that could lead to good things for Sanders and his fantasy production. Despite being highly targeted, the Denver offense simply doesn't put up enough points that Sanders is likely to be an elite option at his position, but he does offer a high floor.
| Signs point to Osweiler getting the start|
Lynch appears gimpy in practice

|All signs point to the Denver Broncos starting Brock Osweiler at quarterback Sunday at Washington.
Osweiler is expected to start not because he deserved the promotion after he came off the bench and led the Broncos to a 25-13, come-from-behind win last week at Indianapolis. He is expected to start because Paxton Lynch doesn’t appear quite healthy enough to play the bulk of a 60-minute game. (9 News in Denver)|
FFToday's Take: The Broncos have yet to name a starting QB but Lynch (ankle) appeared gimpy in practice. He split reps with Osweiler 50-50 during the week. If he's unable to go this week, expect Lynch to start Week 17 against the Chiefs. In related news, Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) appeared to be limited on Friday. He's a candidate for the Inactive list on Sunday.

|Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and inside linebacker Todd Davis returned to practice as the Broncos moved closer to being back at full strength in advance of their Week 9 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Sanders practiced after missing the last two games because of a sprained ankle suffered in the third quarter of the Oct. 15 loss to the New York Giants. (DenverBroncos.com)|
FFToday's Take: Sanders is expected to play this week and will do so with Brock Osweiler as his quarterback. The Eagles have allowed the 14th most fantasy points to wide receivers. Sanders will be in the WR3 discussion for Week 9.
