Fantasy Outlook 2010

Sanders was a third round selection by the Steelers, but it’s difficult to predict what type of playing time he’ll get.  He will definitely be a huge factor in the return game, as the Steelers love his speed.  But with Hines Ward, Mike Wallace and Antwan Randall El to contend with on the flanks, it’s tough to see where Sanders fits right in.  We like him in the long run, but with Roethlisberger out for the first six games, the Steelers are going to be a run-first team and we don’t see Sanders having a relevant fantasy season.

His Game

Now that Santonio Holmes has moved on to the J-E-T-S Jets, the Steelers are devoid of a speedster on the flanks.  Or are they?  Enter Emmanuel Sanders.  The Sandman (nobody has that nickname in sports right?)  is quite the where’d-he-go man.  His 4.41 40-yard dash time at the Combine was 3rd best among wide receivers, but he’s not all speed.  He can catch the ball while running too.  As a senior last year, he was a first-team all-Conference USA selection after posting 98 catches for 1,339 yards and seven touchdowns at SMU.  Granted, he did play in June Jones’ offense, the man credited with coaching Colt Brennan and the receivers at Hawaii, so it’s tough to say how good he is.  But based on this film, we’d say he’s pretty darn good.

Broncos Could Make for an Interesting Stack in DFS

Pyro's take: Siemian found his game last week and looks to continue his ascension against Tampa in week 4.

Fantasy Goo: I like the QB and WR stack here. Siemian has a clear eye for Sanders, who has not seen a game with less than 8 targets, while D Thomas, has not had a game with more than 7 targets. Finally, Tampa has allowed 7 passing TDs thus far, including 1 every week to an opposing WR2.

Sanders as a Surprise Top WR in Wk 2

Sanders could easily rack up monster points against a shoddy (Vontae Davis-less) Colts D. An injured Demaryius Thomas will lead to more opportunities as well

Were you curious but, now willing to try Siemian?

“Trevor is the guy,” Elway said, via ESPN.com. “We have a lot of confidence in Trevor and believe that he can do the job.

Pyro's take: “Trevor is the guy,” Elway said, via ESPN.com. “We have a lot of confidence in Trevor and believe that he can do the job. It’s Trevor’s job, but he’s not going to be looking over his shoulder. He’s got a lot of support. Trevor earned the job. I’m excited about it. I’m excited to see him play and I think we’re in good shape there.”

Fantasy Goo/Loads of it: So far there has only been a small sample of Siemian to taste at this point. You will likely spit it out because Trevor Siemian on your roster is hard to swallow. Remember, nobody made you do it. I understand that you have to give things a chance. How else would you know? Siemian sprays his passes to all of his targets. Emmanuel Sanders says Trevor’s balls are sticky and easy to handle. Demaryius Thomas recalls a pass during OTA’s that got in his eye. Siemian is often hot or warm but, when he is cold nobody likes him. Siemian can keep it coming for a whole 60 minutes and claims there is enough for everyone. When Siemian goes deep he often scores. No scoring lead or hole is too deep for Siemian. Fantasy owners will rejoice when Siemian comes from behind to lead your fantasy team to a climactic victory.

Emmanuel Sanders secured 2-of-6 targets for 17 yards against the Raiders


Pyro's take: What started as a promising year has become a disaster for Emmanuel Sanders. Since his return from injury he hasn't done much, and is no longer being force fed targets in Gary Kubiak's offense. He is a risk play for anyone in the playoffs.

Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) is practicing Wednesday.


Pyro's take: Mike Klis via Twitter "Emmanuel Sanders IS practicing" He was practicing all last week, but he was eventually pulled before the start of the game. He is dealing with a high ankle sprain so be cautious come Sunday.

Gary Kubiak expects Emmanuel Sanders (ankle, finger) to be "full go" for Sunday


Pyro's take: Troy Renck via Twitter mentioned "Kubiak said Ware, Smith, Walker didn't practice. Expects Sanders to be full go. He's not sure on Walker and Smith."

With Brock Osweiler back behind center expect Sanders to have a low-end Wr2 value against the Bears.

Emmanuel Sanders suffered a finger injury on Sunday


Pyro's take: Andrew Mason reported via Twitter "Emmanuel Sanders is expected to "have a normal week" this week. He sustained a finger injury Sunday, Kubiak said."

Even though Sanders has been banged up over the course of the season, he is still going to play, and should be a mid-low number two receiver coming in.

WR Emmanuel Sanders didn't practice with sprained left ankle.


Pyro's take: Mike Klis has reported via Twitter "WR Emmanuel Sanders didn't practice with sprained left ankle."

He injured during the game against the Colts but returned in the game. This is most likely a precaution and he should be suited up for Sunday.

Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) remained "limited"


Pyro's take: The Broncos are not going to risk further injury with Emmanuel Sanders in a practice situation. He should be good to go on Sunday.

Emmanuel Sanders (shoulder) practiced on Monday.


Pyro's take: Jeff Legwold announced via twitter that Emmanuel Sanders has practiced on Monday. Good news for owners as he looks to play this Sunday.

Emmanuel Sanders escaped a significant injury when he sprained the AC joint in his shoulder in the fourth quarter


Pyro's take: ESPN reporter for the Denver Broncos Jeff Legwold stated via twitter "More Kubiak on Sanders: "Expectations are that he's going to be OK.''

Sanders did admit Monday that his shoulder "popped out and popped back in"

Sanders injury occurred late in the fourth quarter when he made a diving grab, which was ruled incomplete. He stayed out the rest of the game.

With the bye-week, Sanders should have time enough to heal.

Gary Kubiak said he wants to get WR Emmanuel Sanders "more involved."


Pyro's take: "You want all your play makers to touch the ball," Kubiak said when asked if he wanted to get more touches for running back C.J. Anderson. "There are only so many to go around. It all depends how you're getting played …I want to get 10 (Sanders) more involved. That's important. I think he is a heck of a play maker for our team."

Sanders is averaging over 10 targets a game this season, but he saw just six last week against the Vikings.

Emmanuel Sanders now a Bronco

Emmanuel Sanders has agreed to terms that will now make him a Denver Bronco. The former Pittsburgh Steeler signed a three year deal worth as much as $18 million, and $6 million in guaranteed money. There is some health risks, as he has had some problems with his foot, even so, Sanders finished the season with solid numbers this past season, as he caught 67 receptions for 740 yards and six touchdowns. Sanders signed a three-year deal that can be worth as much as $18 million if he hits all of the performance-based escalators in the contract. The Broncos have constructed the deal so Sanders will receive a $3 million bonus next March, meaning this year's salary cap charge is a relatively friendly $4 million.

Pyro's take: Sanders struck it big by signing with the Broncos. Not only does he get paid, but gets paid to catch passes from Peyton Manning, in a explosive Denver offense. He will be replacing Eric Decker (87-1,288-11) who went to play for the Jets. If Emmanuel can stay healthy, there is a good possibility to not only match Decker's numbers from last year, but also supersede them

Sanders could be headed for the AFC East

The New York Jets “covet” Sanders and fellow free-agent wideout Jeremy Maclin, according to the New York Daily News. The Jets are expected to free up $8 million in salary cap room by releasing wide receiver Santonio Holmes. New York already has $20.2 million in cap room.

The Patriots signed Sanders to an offer sheet worth $2.5 million last offseason when the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver was a restricted free agent. The Steelers ended up matching the offer sheet, and Sanders caught 67 passes for 740 yards and six touchdowns.

Pyro's take: The Patriots tried to acquire Sanders last season, but the Steelers matched their offer. Now that they will likely be likely be losing Julian Edelman to free agency they could be a player for Emmanuel once again.

The Jets are always going after whatever player the Patriots show interest in, so they have Sanders on their radar. If we have been taught anything about the Jets and Patriots you can bet that Edelman will also receiver an offer from the Jets for his services. If any of these receivers goes to the Jets their fantasy values will take a major hit.

Sanders Looking for 70 Catches and 1,000 Yards

Emmanuel Sanders, during an interview on ESPN, gave some insight into what he and the Steelers have in mind for him this season.

"They're expecting 70 catches for 1,000 yards, and that's the same thing that I expect for myself."

Pyro's take: Sanders had his best season last year, as the Steelers 3rd wide receiver with 44 catches for 626 yards and 1 touchdown. Mike Wallace is now gone and, by default, he is going to see an uptick in his production this season. Personally, I am a fan of Sanders and think that he does have the potential for those lofty numbers, but realistically I think that he will fall short by the end of the season.

Sanders will be good to target as a 4th wide receiver and bye week replacement this season, as he still has the ability to win you a week on his own.
