2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
After posting three straight 1,000-yard seasons in Denver, Emmanuel Sanders took a big step back in 2017, posting just 555 yards on 47 receptions. It's easy to look at those numbers and completely dismiss Sanders as being past his prime at age 31, but it might not be that simple. Sanders suffered an ankle injury in Week 6 of the 2017 season and it really seemed to bother him in some games. While he produced a huge game in Week 7, Sanders went on to fail to achieve even 20 yards receiving in his next four games. We've seen Sanders be streaky throughout his career, but this was more than that - it was very obvious to anyone watching the games that Sanders was not generating the type of separation that he normally does from defensive backs and that, combined with terrible quarterback play, culminated in a disastrous fantasy season.

Looking forward to 2018, Sanders projects to start out wide opposite Demaryius Thomas. The Broncos did select Courtland Sutton who looks to be a future replacement for Sanders and/or Thomas, but Sutton is still very raw and won't likely take significant snaps away from either player until at least late in the season.

The targets figure to still be there for Sanders, who had seen an average of 138 targets per season since he came to Denver prior to the drop-off season in 2017 where he saw just 92 targets. The added competition along with Sanders' age and health issues mean that we should be projecting him for more along the lines of 110 targets, but that could still easily translate to a 70-catch, near 1000-yard season, with some potential big games sprinkled in. Case Keenum will be a welcome addition to the Denver passing game and Sanders is a great bet to bounceback and finish ahead of his current ADP which has him in the mid-30s at wide receiver, but he's still a bit risky and it'd be wise to draft him as a Flex or even bench player to start the season, as opposed to an every-week starter for your fantasy team.
