New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders is expected to see a larger role going forward. 'His touches are going to come,' head coach Sean Payton said Wednesday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Sanders received just three targets in Week 2 against Las Vegas Raiders, posting only one grab for 18 yards. He was expected to see a larger role last week with Michael Thomas sidelined, but it was Tre'Quan Smith and others leading the charge. Apparently Sanders is still acclimating to the playbook and his new surroundings. Keep him on reserve until further notice.

New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders registered just one catch for 18 yards on three targets in Week 2 against the Las Vegas Raiders.
Huddle Up: Sanders was very disappointing given the fact Michael Thomas was out due to injury and he figured to have a much larger role. Fantasy owners will want to keep him reserved until he gets more acclimated to his new surroundings and he gets more involved. The Packers visit the Saints in Week 3.

New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 18.
Huddle Up: Sanders may be in line for a bigger role in the passing game depending on Michael Thomas' availability. Sanders could be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues if he is the top option in the passing game for the Saints.

New Orleans Saints DE Marcus Davenport (elbow) and WR Michael Thomas (ankle) did not practice for a second straight day Friday, Sept. 18. LB Chase Hansen (hip) was added to the injury report and was limited. WR Emmanuel Sanders (non-injury), OL Cesar Ruiz (ankle) and S P.J. Williams (hamstring) practiced in full.

New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 17.
Huddle Up: Sanders was limited to only three receptions and 15 yards last week but may have a much bigger role in the passing game if Michael Thomas is unavailable to play. He can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he becomes the main receiver for the Saints.

New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders finished with three catches on five targets for 15 yards in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Huddle Up: It was a modest team debut for the veteran, who didn't make his first catch until early in the fourth quarter. He made up for lost time, however, following that reception with a nice little run after the catch for a 5-yard score. Sanders is going to be hit-or-miss in games in which New Orleans plays with the lead - which should happen fairly often - and the presence of studs such as Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara will limit his touchdown upside. He's a low-end flex or WR4 option next week against the Las Vegas Raiders.

New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders will be the team's No. 2 wide receiver in 2020 and adds a big boost to the offense, which was lacking dependable production out of receivers not named Michael Thomas last year. After Thomas' 1,725 receiving yards, the next-best receiving output came from Ted Ginn Jr., who had just 421 yards receiving.
Huddle Up: Sanders, at worst, should be a WR3 in PPR formats in the New Orleans offense.

Updating previous reports, New Orleans Saints WR Emmanuel Sanders will make $10 million guaranteed with his new squad. He'll have a $2 million base salary this year, which is fully guaranteed, and he received a $2 million signing bonus. His 2020 cap hit will be $4 million. In 2021, Sanders has a $6 million base salary, with a $2 million signing bonus, $2 million roster bonus and $10 million salary cap hit. There are an additional $1.5 million in incentives tied to receptions for both seasons. His deal also includes a 2022 season, but the deal voids, as reported, the last day of the 2021 NFL league year.
