San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders caught three of his six targets for 61 yards in a 34-31 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16.

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders hauled in two of his four targets for nine yards in Week 15 versus the Atlanta Falcons.
Huddle Up: Sanders has been all over the board in eight games with the 49ers, finishing with four catches and 41 or fewer yards receiving six times and seven receptions for at least 112 yards in the other two. Such is life on a run-oriented offense whose primary pass-catcher is tight end George Kittle. Sanders profiles to be a risky WR3 in Week 16 against the Los Angeles Rams.

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders caught seven passes for 157 yards and a touchdown on nine targets at the New Orleans Saints in Week 14 on Sunday, Dec. 8. He also threw for a 35-yard touchdown pass.
Huddle Up: Sanders has not missed a beat -- in fact has become more dangerous -- since joining the Niners, and he's a must-start option vs. the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15. Don't get to caught up in the idea of trick passes and possible rushing attempts, as Sanders' nine targets alone should be the draw.

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Sanders had one of his better games as a member of the 49ers last week but has posted at least 50 yards in only one of the six games he has played for San Francisco. He should be a flex option in some leagues but can be benched if fantasy players have better options.

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) practiced in full for the second straight Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Sanders seems to have been fully surpassed by rookie WR Deebo Samuel and is the third option in the 49ers' passing game behind Samuel and TE George Kittle. He's more attractive than usual this week due to what's likely to be a high-scoring game against the New Orleans Saints, but he's still a risky flex play.

San Francisco 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders registered two receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Baltimore Ravens.
Huddle Up: Sanders was acquired to be the No. 1 wideout for the 49ers, but he has been just average as he gets up to speed in the offense. He remains more of a WR4 heading into New Orleans in Week 14.
