2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe Pick

Last updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs


Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Sanders has more failure than success in his last five games (2/22, 0/0, and 3/19) due to some lingering injury issues. He played a full complement of snaps in the last two games so he appears to be healthy. Sanders has three 100-yard receiving games and four TDs, while averaging 9.3 targets per game. This season he's only caught 53.9 percent of his targets. In Week 5 he had nine catches for 111 yards on 12 targets against the Raiders. I expect one of the Broncos' WRs to play well, so Sanders may payoff.

Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Sanders returned to the starting lineup in Week 12 and showed no ill effects from his ankle issue. He caught six of his nine targets for 113 yards. He has three 100-yard receiving games in 10 games with four TDs, while averaging 9.4 targets per game. Last year Sanders had his best game of the year vs. the Chargers (9/120/3). CB Patrick Robinson has played pretty well since taking over as the starting CB for weak link Brandon Flowers.

In a way, Sanders fits in the Broncos offense like a glove. His production grew by 50 percent in 2014 from his previous season. He finished with 101 catches on 141 targets for 1404 yards and nine TDs. Sanders accumulated 100 yards seven times last season and caught at least five catches in twelve games. He has explosive upside in some games and his opportunity will remain in line with his 2014 season. Emmanuel has an opportunity to finish as a top-ten WR as Peyton's number two option in the passing game. You can pencil him down for 100-110 catches, 1300 yards and a chance at double-digit touchdowns.

3.08 Team Davis - Had Hopkins and Hilton lined up and when they both disappeared right in front of me I had a bit of a brain-fart. While I'm still a believer in Sanders and expect solid WR2 numbers out of him, I'm not a fan of having my #1 and #2 WR's from the same team. W
