From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Sanders didn't have to contend with Jason Verrett in Week 2 and his numbers bounced back as Trevor Siemian found him twice for scores. He'll have another good matchup against the Bills corners in Week 3.

Week 3: at Buffalo Bills

All WR vs BUF

FBG says: Tough matchup. Trevor Siemian and the Broncos passing offense absolutely decimated a struggling Cowboys secondary last week. Siemian tied his career high with four touchdowns last week, completing nearly 70% of his passes for 231 yards. The combination of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders led the way for Broncos receivers, each garnering eight targets and six receptions with Thomas leading in yardage with 71 but Sanders leading in touchdowns with two big scores. Thomas has yet to find the end zone this season, despite leading the Broncos in receiving yards each of the first two weeks. C.J. Anderson also got involved in the passing game here, hauling in three balls for 36 yards and a touchdown. The Bills pass defense is a solid unit off to a great start this season. Their pass-rush looked particularly fierce last week with consistent pressure applied to Cam Newton, resulting in six sacks on the day. Edge rusher Jerry Hughes was particularly effective, finishing with two sacks and four quarterback hurries in what was a tough matchup against former Pro Bowl left tackle Matt Kalil. Safety Jordan Poyer has been outstanding so far this season, contributing to the Bills allowing only two pass plays of 20 or more yards last week while racking up seven tackles, a sack, and three passes defended. With Denver missing left tackle Garrett Boles this week, a key piece of their offensive line, they may struggle to protect Siemian as he tries to find an opening against the hot Bills secondary.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs DAL (8 / 6 / 62 / 2 rec)

On Denver's first drive, two plays after Demaryius Thomas caught a quick slant and turned it into a big run up the sidelines, Sanders ran what looked like exactly the same play. He lined up wide right, caught a quick inward slant and then turned around to race up the right sideline for a gain of 28. Sanders capped the drive off with a short post route for a touchdown, catching the ball in a torrential downpour of rain. Sanders caught another touchdown to end the 2nd quarter, leaving his defender behind on a sharp out route and hauling the ball in just inside the pylon. Sanders was dead even with Thomas on targets(8) and catches(6). Thomas had a few more yards, but Sanders gathered the most fantasy points with the two touchdowns.

2017 Week 1 vs LAC (6 / 3 / 26 / 0 rec)

Sanders just narrowly missed a diving catch in the end zone on a deep corner route in the 1st quarter. The touchdown pass glanced off his fingertips. He hauled in a quick screen in the 3rd quarter for a 1st down. Sanders had an amazing catch and run midway through the 3rd quarter, catching a quick pass and bouncing the ball all the way across the field on his way to making most of the team miss. He secured a touchdown pass but landed out of bounds in the waning seconds of the 3rd quarter, ending the night with the 2nd most targets(6), 3 catches, and a paltry 26 yards.

Broncos | Denver WRs facing banged up secondary (Fri Sep 15, 07:00 PM) - Denver Broncos WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders will be facing a banged up Dallas Cowboys secondary in Week 2 since CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) and CB Chido Awuzie (hamstring) are dealing with injuries. CB Anthony Brown replaced Scandrick as the nickel back in Week 1 and Awuzie was starting opposite CB Nolan Carroll. FS Byron Jones (groin) is also listed as questionable for the game.

Our View: This will be a great contrast from last week, when they faced Jason Verrett and Casey Hayward. Expect good numbers from Sanders and Thomas and a second straight solid week from Trevor Siemian.
