The Broncos’ WR2 and Pro Bowl player is primed for a huge role on Sunday with the team.

One of my paid leagues is a kick/punt return yardage league, and Sanders is going to be incredibly valuable there because he’s now the primary punt returner for the Broncos.

That’s not only exciting for your fantasy team, it’s exciting for Broncos fans because of the big play threat this guy is. The biggest question mark here is injury. Sanders has been out with a hamstring injury, something that’s not to be taken lightly. Those type of injuries can linger.

If Sanders is fully healthy and his normal, explosive self, there’s no doubt he’s a borderline WR1 and solid WR2 for your fantasy squad week in and week out.
