No. 6- Emmanuel Sanders

2016 was an off year for Emmanuel Sanders. I believe not having Peyton Manning throwing the football made it much of a challenge for him.

However, he still was able to record over 1,000 yards for the third straight year.

And he was rewarded with a contract extension before the season began, so Elway has a lot of faith in him.

I honestly believe that Emmanuel Sanders will also benefit from Vance Joseph and the coaching staff. But if there is one thing that he has going for him, it is his ability to make plays in critical situations.

Some of his catches and touchdowns have been remarkable the past two seasons. He truly has a knack for going up and getting the football no matter if it is a catch for the first down or if it is a touchdown.

Not to mention he has had some interesting celebrations in 2016. There is no doubt in my mind that Sanders will bounce back and have a better 2017.
