2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
It might be surprising to hear, but Emmanuel Sanders was actually the WR12 in fantasy prior to rupturing his Achilles in Week 13. The veteran has been a mainstay in the Denver offense but it was not expected that the Broncos would bring him back in 2019 after such a devastating injury, given that the team is essentially in rebuilding mode. They did make the move to bring him back, however, and now all eyes are on his recovery.

Sanders has been providing his Instagram followers with glimpses of his offseason workout, but he has not been able to get on the field yet in 2019. There is legitimate concern that he may not be ready to start the regular season which would be a huge blow for fantasy owners who are drafting him around the 10th round in ADP.

Most players have historically needed about a full calendar year to recover from a ruptured Achilles. We'd want to see that Sanders is able to get back on the field and start moving around like he did prior to the injury before we deploy him in fantasy. If Sanders is able to play in the preseason, it'd be one of the fastest recoveries from the injury that we've ever seen, so the chances of that happening are pretty slim. The most likely scenario is that he'll start the season on the PUP list, which means he'll be out for at least six games. That's almost half of a typical fantasy football regular season.

Sanders is the only proven, productive pass catcher in this offense and he will likely see the highest target share of the bunch of he's healthy to start the season, but there's no question that the team is looking to get their young receivers - particularly Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton - more involved this season. The lack of true upside in a Joe Flacco-led offense and the Achilles' injury combined with emerging young receivers makes Sanders a very risky pick where he's currently being drafted. We'll likely see this number change throughout the season as we get more information and inch closer to the start of the preseason and eventually the regular season, but Sanders looks like a bust waiting to happen at his current ADP.

News From The Past 90 Days
Saints add Emmanuel Sanders
Two-year, $16 million deal
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Mar 20, 10:00 pm

New Orleans
Emmanuel Sanders had appealing NFC options. Sanders spoke with the Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers, but preferred to wind up with the New Orleans Saints, where he land d a two-year, $16 million deal worth up to $19 million. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: This is a good move for the Saints who have been searching for a viable No.2 receiver for multiple seasons. He'll play second fiddle to Michael Thomas and have to fight for targets with TE Jared Cook, but Sanders will be a worthy middle-round option in 2020 redraft leagues.
