Fantasy Football: 3 Saints to target in the later rounds
Average Draft Pick – 117.3
Emmanuel Sanders is a huge mystery when it comes to this season. He is on a different team this season which is no shock to anyone; however, his role this season will be different than it has for the last couple of seasons and restored to one it was before.
Since 2018, Sanders has been the No. 1 receiver with the Denver Broncos and the San Francisco 49ers. Before that, he filled the No. 2 role behind Antonio Brown in Pittsburgh and Demaryius Thomas in Denver.
Now, he is back where he is most confident — playing behind a talented No.1 receiver. From 2014 to 2016, Sanders had his best three seasons of his career behind D. Thomas with a future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning.
This season, he is behind Michael Thomas with a future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees. Theoretically, his numbers could mirror the 200 points he was putting up per season with the Denver Broncos.
That is roughly 13 points per game from a player you could get at the end of the 12th round.
