Fantasy Football Player Profile: Emmanuel Sanders A Solid Sleeper
Name: Emmanuel Sanders
Team: Pittsburgh Steelers
Position: Wide Receiver
Years Pro: 3
Draft stock: (Rising) After Mike Wallace dipped for the Miami Dolphins this offseason, the Pittsburgh spotlight quickly turned to Sanders. Fantasy football owners are flocking to Sanders and thinking that Ben Roethlisberger has a rebound season.
2012 fantasy impact: Once again, Sanders was in the shadow of Wallace in 2012 as No. 88 could only muster one touchdown last season. Of course, Roethlisberger was a shell of himself, yet Sanders didn’t fulfill the Steelers’ expectations, anyway. On a good note, Sanders had a career-high 626 receiving yards.
Best-case scenario: Pittsburgh has found its new No. 1 receiver in Sanders. Without Wallace, Roethlisberger is forced to look Sanders’ way in the open field and most importantly: in the redzone.
Worst-case scenario: Sanders is unable to handle the pressures of being a top-notch wide receiver. Instead, the Steelers look elsewhere and Heath Miller becomes the main redzone target for yet another season.
Where you should draft him: Sanders isn’t quite an established NFL talent, but he still deserves a rather high draft pick. The Steelers’ wide receiver is worthy of a eighth round selection in my book.
