News: 3 days agoSanders hauled in two of six targets for 48 yards in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.
Spin: The production is pretty empty and the misfires show the veteran is still getting his rhythm down with quarterback Josh Allen, but brighter days are certainly ahead for the Sanders in this high-powered offense. While he has a modest 100 yards and has yet to see the end zone through two games, he's also seen 14 targets already. Sanders' 50 snaps Sunday were second on the team behind Stefon Diggs.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Sanders is back for his 12th NFL season and will be suiting up for Buffalo. Sanders is now 34 years old and has missed at least two games three of the past four seasons, but he's still been effective when healthy. He's finished in the 90th percentile in catch rate and 70th percentile in YPT each of the past three seasons despite playing for three different teams. He's delivered five top-30 fantasy campaigns over the past seven seasons. Sanders now joins a Bills offense that was second pass-heaviest in the NFL and ranked first in three-plus WR sets (94%) and second in four-plus WR sets (17%) when passing last season. Sanders figures to share No. 3 duties with Gabriel Davis behind Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley. He is worth a bench spot in deep leagues.
