After a slow start this season, Emmanuel Sanders is beginning to heat up and produce like an elite fantasy receiver.

Over the past three games, Sanders has caught 24 passes for 285 yards and three touchdowns. He has been the the fourth-best receiver in terms of fantasy scoring during that span, ahead of Antonio Brown, Demaryius Thomas, and Julio Jones.

Sanders will now face a San Diego Chargers team that has one of, if not the NFL’s worst defense. He will do so with Siemian expected to be back in the starting lineup. Expect Sanders to keep up his hot streak with another big outing.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! ranks Sanders as the 18th-best receiver in Week 6. He faces a Chargers team allowing the sixth-most receiving yards to receivers over the past three weeks.

There is no question that you should keep Sanders in your starting lineup for this Thursday Night Football matchup.
