Emmanuel Sanders Injury Update: Ribs are OK, fantasy value is not

Joe Sargent

Emmanuel Sanders is ready to go against the Bengals.

Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) was limited in practice on Wednesday, then was put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. He is listed as probable to face the Bengals.

Sanders hasn't built off his big preseason with 41 catches for 585 yards and one TD on the season. He is the third-string WR and doesn't have much value with Antonio Brown back in the lineup.

Fantasy Impact: Sanders was going to split the first-team reps with Mike Wallace, but Wallace played extremely well of late and it should be his show at the X spot. Sanders only saw two targets combined in his last two games and has fallen off the map in fantasy leagues.

Fantasy owners should be looking at other options unless they're in a 24-man league.
