Summary

Sanders had an up and down season in fantasy terms, but helped the 49ers get to the Super Bowl and proved his NFL worth once again. He signed a two-year, $16 million dollar deal with the Saints, a much better pass offense than San Francisco or Denver, but also an offense with more mouths to feed. Sanders is unlikely to eclipse his 2019 combined numbers with the Broncos and 49ers, but his ADP is coming in outside of the top 40 receivers, which seems to more than price in the smaller share of the pie he'll receive in New Orleans. The quality of the targets could still be a lot better in an offense that is so tough to defend, so having Sanders as one of your top bench receivers as a bye/injury/matchup option is a prudent choice.
