Disappointment aside, this is huge news in the Fantasy community. Owners knew they were taking a risk when drafting Welker, but this adds another layer and further clouds his future with the team and in the NFL. Emmanuel Sanders came into this season with plenty of hype after a career year in Pittsburgh and is ranked as a Top 30 receiver in all formats, but this news, coupled with the instant success of Welker after joining Manning (career high 10 touchdowns despite 13 fewer receptions than his worst season in New England), has Sanders’ stock as high as it has ever been. I think the 27-year-old is a very talented player and more than capable of producing a solid season in Denver … but this is the time to sell him.
You heard me: sell Emmanuel Sanders.
