Sanders was targeted nine times, recording three catches for 28 yards in Sunday's win over Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

It was a crash back down to earth for Sanders as he and the Broncos' rookie quarterback just missed on multiple occasions. Prior to Sunday's game, Sanders had caught at least four passes in ever game since Week 2 and hit a fever pitch in his rapport with Trevor Siemian to the tune of 162 yards in Week 12. Expect that chemistry to continue once Siemian returns.

Sanders caught seven of 10 targets for 162 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Sanders led the team in targets, receptions and yards while giving the Broncos their first lead of the game with a 35-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter. He produced a season-high in yardage and found the end zone for the first time since Week 4. Sanders achieved a much-needed breakout that coincided with a career game from Trevor Siemian, and the duo will look to continue firing on all cylinders next week against the Jaguars.

Sanders snagged five of nine targets for 54 yards in Sunday's win over the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

From Weeks 3 through 5, Sanders averaged eight catches, 95 yards and a touchdown per game. He's remained consistent since then, with five straight games of at least four receptions, but the rest of the production hasn't been there - 59 yards per game and no scores. Sanders benefited from a strong rapport with Trevor Siemian to start the season, but Demaryius Thomas seems to have supplanted him. Since Week 6, Thomas has been targeted more than Sanders in three of five games, not including one match-up in which they both were targeted 10 times.

Sanders caught five of 11 targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Raiders

EDGE Analysis

The shaky Oakland secondary turned in one of its better performances of the season, also holding Demaryius Thomas to only five catches for 56 yards on 10 targets. Thomas and Sanders both push for double-digit looks on a weekly basis, but with Trevor Siemian still struggling to get anything going downfield, neither wideout has come through with a big day since Week 4.

Sanders nabbed four of 10 targets for 68 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Sanders proved that, despite only occasional looks deep, he can still stretch the defense - reeling in an acrobatic 37-yard catch in the second quarter to set Denver up for what was a squandered opportunity. Sanders leads the team in catches and yards, but that's of little solace to what looks to be the speedster's quietest season in Mile High. He may want to break the silence by speaking up again. After publicly complaining about a lack of looks, Sanders scored three touchdowns in two games in Weeks 3 and 4. He hasn't found the end zone in four games since.

Sanders caught four passes (on eight targets) for 86 yards in Monday night's win over the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Sanders led all players with 86 receiving yards Monday, with his total getting a boost from a game-long gain of 31 yards during the third quarter. The shifty wideout also went for 29 yards on a second-quarter play, which helped set up another Denver touchdown drive. On the back of Monday's showing, Sanders has now reached the 80-yard mark in four of the Broncos' last five games, with the lone time he didn't get there coming in Week 6 against the Chargers, who'll travel to Denver to play this Sunday.

Sanders (hip) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Sanders sustained a hip injury back in the Broncos' Oct. 13 tilt against the Chargers, but his full practice participation Thursday puts him in line to be a go for Monday night's game against Houston.

Sanders (hip) practiced Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanders hurt his hip near the end of Thursday's loss to San Diego, but he reportedly felt much better the next day, suggesting the issue may have just been a contusion. He may not even be on the injury report leading up to Monday's game against Houston.

Sanders, who suffered a hip injury following a fourth-quarter catch in Thursday's loss to the Chargers, was reportedly feeling better Friday.

EDGE Analysis

"He looks like he's going to be okay; he's doing well this morning," interim Head Coach Joe DeCamillis noted of the wideout Friday. Working in Sanders' favor is that he'll have some added healing time, courtesy of the Broncos' current short week, coupled with the fact that the team plays on Monday night in Week 7.

Sanders secured four of six targets for 40 yards in Thursday's 21-13 loss to the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Sanders' yardage total led the Broncos, a testament to the struggles the Denver offense endured overall. The six targets were a season low for the 29-year-old, who nevertheless notched a reception of at least 20 yards for the second straight week. Sanders had logged 24 catches (on 35 targets) over the previous three games, so the modest output Thursday can likely be chalked up as an outlier that he'll look to put behind him in a Week 7 tilt against the Texans.
