Buffalo Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (non-injury) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 15.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders has posted four touchdowns over the last three weeks and is averaging a little over six targets a game. He should have success against the Tennessee Titans and can be a No. 3 receiver in fantasy leagues.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has surprisingly been a solid fantasy option through the first five games of the season. Last week, Sanders hauled in two touchdowns in the win over the Kansas City Chiefs. He has seen five or more targets in every game this season and that's unlikely to change. The veteran wideout should be a strong flex option for the Week 6 matchup against the Tennessee Titans. He is an every-down player and clearly has built chemistry with quarterback Josh Allen.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has exceeded expectations during the first five games of the season. The 34-year-old veteran wideout has seen a revival of his career with his new team. In Week 5, Sanders hauled in three of his five targets for 54 yards and two touchdowns in the win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Sanders appears to be the clear cut No. 2 option in this offense. His fantasy value should remain consistent going forward. He'll be a solid flex option against the Tennessee Titans next week.

Buffalo Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders had three receptions, 54 yards and two touchdowns during the team's Week 5 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Spin: Almost a forgotten man in New Orleans, Sanders has fit in nicely with the Bills, posting a pair of two-touchdown performances over the past three weeks. The yardage numbers haven't been great, but Sanders is probably a better play right now than Cole Beasley and could be used as a WR3/flex.

Buffalo Bills RB Taiwan Jones (hamstring), LB Matt Milano (hamstring) and DE A.J. Epenesa (foot) were limited in practice Friday, Oct. 8, and are listed as questionable for Week 5 versus the Kansas City Chiefs. WR Stefon Diggs (rest) and DE Jerry Hughes (rest) did not practice Friday but are expected to play. CB Tre'Davious White (shoulder) was limited in practice all week but no longer appears on the injury report. OT Spencer Brown (knee), OG Jon Feliciano (concussion), CB Dane Jackson (knee), CB Taron Johnson (groin), DE Efe Obada (ankle), S Jordan Poyer (ankle) and DE Gregory Rousseau (toe) practiced in full Friday and have also been removed from the injury report. DT Star Lotulelei (rest), WR Emmanuel Sanders, DE Mario Addison (rest) and WR Cole Beasley (rest) were not given practice designations on Friday but are also expected to be active.

Oct 7 10:20pm ET

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has been consistently involved in the offense over the first few weeks of the season. Sanders has seen eight or more targets every game thus far and that shouldn't change against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5. The veteran slot receiver should have no problems against the shaky Chiefs secondary in this one. Sanders appears to be a fine WR3 option in PPR formats for this above average matchup against the Chiefs.

From RotoBaller

Oct 7 4:33pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 7.

Fantasy Spin: It appears like Sanders will receive most Thursdays off this season but will be ready to play in Week 5. He has been targeted six times in each of the last three weeks and should receive a similar workload this week. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver or flex option in leagues.

DT Spencer Brown (knee), OG Jon Feliciano (concussion), CB Dane Jackson (knee), CB Taron Johnson (groin), DE Efe Obada (ankle) and DE Gregory Rousseau (toe) practiced in full.

Oct 3 8:00pm ET

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has been a reliable option for this offense throughout the first month of the season. In Week 4, Sanders hauled in five of his six targets for 74 yards in what ended up being a blowout victory over the Houston Texans. The veteran wideout has been solid whenever he gets targeted and quarterback Josh Allen feeds him the ball quite a bit. It wouldn't be surprising to see Sanders fall into the WR3 conversation against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5.

From RotoBaller

Oct 3 5:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders caught five passes for 74 yards against the Houston Texans in Week 4. He was targeted six times during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders has played well over the last two weeks with 10 receptions, 168 yards and two touchdowns during that span. He has become a reliable target for Josh Allen and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Oct 1 5:03pm ET

Buffalo Bills S Jordan Poyer (ankle) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 4 versus the Houston Texans. OG Jon Feliciano (concussion) missed practice for a second consecutive day on Friday, Oct. 1, and has also been ruled out. CB Taron Johnson did not practice for a second straight day on Friday but is listed as questionable. DE Efe Obada (ankle) was upgraded to a full practice Friday but is also listed as questionable. DE Jerry Hughes (rest) and WR Stefon Diggs (rest) did not practice Friday, while RB Taiwan Jones (rest), DT Star Lotulelei (rest), DE Mario Addison (rest), WR Emmanuel Sanders (rest) and WR Cole Beasley (rest) were not given practice designations; all six are expected to be active. S Micah Hyde (quad) practiced in full for a second straight day on Friday and was removed from the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Oct 1 11:30am ET

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has been making the most out of his chances with his new team. Through three games, Sanders has 11 receptions, 194 yards and two touchdowns. That isn't bad for someone who has to share targets with Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley. His success should continue against the Houston Texans in Week 4. The Bills have a pass-heavy attack, which makes Sanders a passable flex option here.

From RotoBaller

Sep 30 4:53pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders is coming off a two-touchdown performance last week and is averaging nearly seven targets per game. He will continue to be a reliable option for Josh Allen and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Sep 28 1:00pm ET

Bills' WR Emmanuel Sanders scored 26.40 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 3 win against the FB Team. Sanders caught five passes for 94 yards with two touchdowns. It's the 1st time this season Sanders scored at least 25 fantasy points in a game.

Sep 27 1:40am ET

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has been a solid addition to this offensive unit. He didn't find the end zone through the first two games, but that quickly changed against the Washington Football Team in Week 3. The veteran wideout hauled in five of his six targets for 94 yards and two touchdowns in the win. Obviously, the two scores made it an incredible day for Sanders in fantasy leagues. However, going forward he'll still have to split up the targets with Stefon Diggs and Cole Beasley. Despite that, he'll be on the streaming radar next week against the Texans.

From RotoBaller

Sep 26 6:53pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders caught five passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns against the Washington Football Team in Week 3. He was targeted six times during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders has been targeted at least six times in each of the three games this season but posted season highs in receptions, yards and touchdowns this week. He will continue to see plenty of targets in the passing game and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option next week.

From TheHuddle

Sep 24 2:43pm ET

Buffalo Bills CBs Dane Jackson (knee) and CB Levi Wallace (knee) were upgraded to a full practice Friday, Sept. 24, but are listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Washington Football Team. S Siran Neal (personal) and WR Stefon Diggs (rest) did not practice Friday and were added to the injury report but are expected to play. WR Gabriel Davis (ankle), LB Tremaine Edmunds (illness), S Micah Hyde (neck), DT Star Lotulelei (groin) and DE Efe Obada (calf) practiced in full and no longer appear on the injury report. DE Mario Addison (rest), WR Cole Beasley (rest), DE Jerry Hughes (rest) and WR Emmanuel Sanders (rest) were not given practice designations Friday but are also expected to be available.

From TheHuddle

Sep 23 4:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills WR Emmanuel Sanders (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Spin: Sanders likely will receive a practice off during the season but is in no danger of missing the Week 3 game. He has posted 100 yards over the first two games of the season, but fantasy players likely will have better options available.
