2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
Drafted in the 3rd round of the 2010 draft, Sanders was the player expected to eventually take over in the starting lineup for Hines Ward. Injuries have derailed that plan and Antonio Brown, taken in the 6th round in 2010, has laid claim to the starting spot opposite Mike Wallace with Ward now retired. Sanders role in 2012 is yet to be determined as he will either battle Jerricho Cotchery for the 3rd receiver role or for a spot in the starting lineup if Mike Wallace doesnít sign his restricted free agent tender. Of course, Wallace stands to lose close to $170,000 each week he misses so we expect he will report just prior to Week 1 at the latest. Look for Sanders to nail down the slot receiver role.

Injury Demaryius will test hip in pregame warmups     -- Sun Sep 18 8:45 am --

Gametime Decision
Broncos operating as if Demaryius Thomas will be able to play through hip injury. But they do want to see him test it pregame to make sure. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Thomas has a tasty matchup against the Colts depleted secondary but even if he does play his risk is off the chart. He could be limited. Of the two, Emmanuel Sanders is the better receiver play for fantasy owners.
Injury Demaryius Thomas still hurting     -- Thu Sep 15 11:55 pm --

Suffered hip injury early in Week 1 win
Demaryius Thomas (hip) again stood on the sideline twice as long as he practiced Thursday at Broncos headquarters. The veteran wide receiver tried to shrug off the seriousness of a left hip injury. But a full week after first suffering pain, the hurt is lingering. Just like he did Wednesday, Thomas on Thursday participated in only one-third of the Broncosí practice snaps, coach Gary Kubiak said. He has spent most of this week on the sideline. ďItís day by day. I ainít gonna be feeling great. But itís getting better every day. ... Stopping out of breaks, going down field, even taking hits. With the hip, you never know,Ē Thomas said. (Denver Post)

FF Today's Take: Thomas owners need to start making other plans for Week 2, if not beyond. It is a lot to ask any player to play through a hip injury to begin with, and hip injuries are almost serious in nature. Jordan Norwood and Cody Latimer would be the receivers most likely to fill in should DT miss time, but Emmanuel Sanders and Virgil Green would be the ones to benefit most statistically from his absence.
