Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (ankles) made his preseason debut against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, Aug. 19, returning from double ankle surgery. He had a five-yard catch, a 19-yard run on a reverse and one long reception called back due to penalty.
Huddle Up: It was a successful return to game action for Sanders, and he looked good, particularly on the reverse which saw him juke his way to a solid gainer while putting stress on those ankles. He heads into 2019 as a low-end WR4 in most fantasy formats, and he'll be jockeying with emerging stud Courtland Sutton for the No. 1 job in the Mile High City.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) will play Monday, Aug. 19, in his first game since tearing his Achilles' tendon last December.
Huddle Up: Sanders' ADP has dropped considerably from his usual career levels; he's going in the middle of the 10th round on average as a WR4. He still figures to be the Broncos' lead receiver in a group including sophomores Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton, and rookie Juwann Winfree. He could prove to be one of the best steals in 2019 drafts.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) said Tuesday, Aug. 13, he doesn't believe he'll be on a snap-count limit come Week 1 of the regular season.
Huddle Up: Sanders has tumbled down the WR ranks due to last season's injury and age (32), but he continues to appear well ahead of schedule in training camp. It's a very real possibility that he winds up leading the Broncos in receiving and proves to be an extremely valuable late-draft fantasy pickup.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles, ankle) said he underwent surgery on his right ankle during the offseason. Sanders said he dealt with problems with his ankle for the last two seasons.
Huddle Up: Sanders appears to be making good progress in his recovery and should be ready for the start of the regular season. He is on track to be the No. 1 receiver for the Broncos in 2019 and can be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) participated in team drills during practice Monday, July 29.
Huddle Up: Sanders probably will not play in any preseason games but appears to be on track for the start of the regular season. He has a chance to be at least a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he is healthy.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) participate in some snaps during seven-on-seven drills Wednesday, July 24. Head coach Vic Fangio said he hopes Sanders will be able to do more and more as camp goes on.
Huddle Up: Sanders appears to be making solid progress in his recovery but probably will not play in a game until the regular season. He will be the main target in the passing game if he is healthy and can be a No. 3 receiver in some fantasy leagues.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) continues to participate in the early portions of practice with the team before leaving to work with trainers, head coach Vic Fangio said Sunday. July 21. 'It's a slow but sure process,' Fangio said. 'Everything is good so far. He's where we expected him to be and even a little bit more.'
Huddle Up: While Sanders continues to make progress, it seems unlikely he is going to be top form by Week 1. If you are willing to be patient, he could become a solid WR3 by the end of the year.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) didn't participate in team periods at practice Thursday, July 18, but told NFL Network's James Palmer he could do them if he was allowed by the coaches and training staff. Sanders is expected to a 'full go' for practice in two to three weeks, according to Palmer.
Huddle Up: To be clear, clearance for full practice does not necessarily mean he is fully healthy. With that said, Sanders seems to be well ahead of schedule from the Achilles tear that ended his season just over eight months ago. At this point, the only question would appear to be if he'll see any action during preseason games; there seems to be no indication he's in any danger to miss Week 1. Nevertheless, owners should not expect him to begin this season at the same peak form he exhibited throughout most of 2018.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles') will not open camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to team president John Elway.
Huddle Up: Sanders is a tough decision later in drafts this year. He's aging, and he's coming off an Achilles' injury. He's a risky WR4 or a WR5 flyer.

Denver Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders (Achilles) told The Athletic's Nicki Jhabvala that he is 'definitely not going to be full-go from the jump' in training camp. He also said the plan is to gradually work him back to full practices.
Huddle Up: It goes without saying Sanders is a high-risk player for fantasy purposes this year, as Achilles tears are among the worst injuries for players who rely on making Quicken sharp cuts as much as receivers do. Sanders and fantasy owners alike should feel fortunate if he can regain his 2018 form at any point this season, making him more of a low-end WR4 option at best.
