Summary

Emmanuel Sanders was slowed by injury last year and only made it through 12 games. The numbers he posted (47 catches, 555 yards, two touchdowns) were nowhere near what he did in previous seasons with the Broncos as last year was the first time he failed to go over 1,000 yards in Denver. We should see Sanders push for that mark again with the addition of QB Case Keenum. Sanders is still recovering from the ankle injury that slowed him last year but he's been looking fast in a straight line out at OTAs and minicamp. He should be the starting receiver opposite Demaryius Thomas in 2018 but Sanders will be pushed by 2018 second-round pick Courtland Sutton. The Broncos should move Sanders inside to the slot in some packages to at least get a talent like Sutton on the field. Sanders has plenty of WR3 or flex appeal in 2018 but there are some games where he could post WR1 numbers. (June 4)
