Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 13: Emmanuel Sanders

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

We take a look at whether or not you should start Emmanuel Sanders in Week 13.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders might make for an interesting starter against the Ravens in Week 13. After being held out of the end zone in three straight games, Sanders caught six passes for 52 yards and a score against the Cleveland Browns last week.

What was impressive about last week is that Sanders caught six of seven targets. The Steelers need him to produce Thursday, as the Ravens will surely blanket teammate Antonio Brown. Given the Ravens rank 16th overall in fantasy points allowed to receivers, Sanders might see some action Thursday.

Fantasy Sit/Start: With tight end Heath Miller not doing as well in terms of finding the end zone, someone besides Brown needs to be able to get in there on a regular basis. Sanders has the ability to be that guy. It's no secret the Steelers need wins and the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens are looking like anything but that these days. Fantasy owners should start Sanders in Week 13, but a touchdown isn't guaranteed.
