Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was tasked with replacing Mike Wallace this season, and he has mostly delivered. Through 14 games, Sanders has 63 catches for 707 yards and five touchdowns while serving as Antonio Brown's wingman.
Despite dealing with a minor foot injury the last month, Sanders caught fire down the stretch, scoring a touchdown in three straight games. That streak ended in last week's win over the Cincinnati Bengals, when he finished with 38 yards on five catches. The Steelers visit the Green Bay Packers this week needing a win to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.
Fantasy impact: It's not quite the breakout fantasy owners were hoping for before the season, but there's been very little to complain about Sander's production. He looks to close out the fantasy season with an appealing matchup against Green Bay's soft defense. Brown is a legitimate WR1 in all fantasy formats, but Sanders has WR3 upside for the championships.
