Target No. 1 – 10 Touchdowns
This number of touchdowns is a feat that Sanders has never hit in his career. However, with Drew Brees at the helm and Michael Thomas working as the under the receiver, Sanders could be set up to break this target.
Drew Brees threw 27 touchdowns last season, which was an off-year for Brees after being injured. Split between Sanders, Thomas, Kamara, and Cook it is still an achievable goal for the newly acquired receiver.
The highest touchdowns Sanders has ever had in a season was back in 2014 with Manning and Demarius Thomas where the Broncos went to the Super Bowl. The scene is setting up to be the same season for Sanders.
Future Hall-of-Fame quarterback, No. 1 receiver that is better than him, and a great base team around him — that was the formula for the Broncos and Emmanuel Sanders will be in that element again to break this career-high in touchdowns.
