Emmanuel Sanders injury update: Could have a decent fantasy game Sunday

Vincent Pugliese

Emmanuel Sanders has been quiet lately. We break down the fantasy implications.

Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders is listed as probable to face the Cleveland Brown on Sunday. He practiced all week and will be ready to go without restrictions.

His Week 11 afternoon was cut short due to a foot injury against the Detroit Lions. Sanders finished with one catch for two yards on just two targets in the win. His stats have been a far cry from expectations on the season, totaling 509 receiving yards and two scores on 42 receptions.

This is setting up to be a solid game for Sanders. Antonio Brown has been an absolute monster over the past few weeks, but he'll get Joe Haden all over him during the game.

Fantasy impact: His foot injury looks to be a non-issue. Sanders is still going to be a huge gamble this week given how he has just 15 yards combined over the last two weeks. The good news is the Steelers have been able to score, but the risk seems to outweigh the reward. He should be viewed as a dicey WR3 in the fantasy majority of fantasy formats.
