Sanders (knee) brought in five of six targets for 60 yards in the Broncos' 30-6 loss to the Chiefs on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Sanders was second in receptions, receiving yards and targets behind Courtland Sutton for the Broncos on the night. The veteran receiver had gone through an utterly forgettable two-game stretch coming into Thursday's contest, as he'd secured just two of four targets for nine yards combined in Weeks 5 and 6. Therefore, Sanders and fantasy managers will hope he can carry over the momentum into a Week 8 battle versus the Colts a week from Sunday.

Sanders (knee) will suit up against the Chiefs on Thursday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanders doesn't carry an injury designation into the Week 7 contest, indicating that he's put his knee issue behind him. The veteran wideout has been quiet the last two weeks, turning four targets into just two catches for nine yards across that stretch. Sanders will look to rebound against Kansas City's exploitable secondary.

Sanders (knee) was listed as a full participant on Tuesday's injury report, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Earlier Tuesday, coach Vic Fangio said Sanders would return to practice, but the fact the Broncos released an estimate indicates they didn't do much more on-field work than a walkthrough. In any case, Sanders' elevation from LP to FP is a good sign that he'll be ready to go for Thursday's game against the Chiefs. Wednesday's report will reveal his odds to do so.

Coach Vic Fangio expects Sanders (knee) to practice Tuesday, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After racking up at least 80 receiving yards in three of the first four games of the season, Sanders has been held in check the last two weeks, combining for two catches (on four targets) for nine yards during that stretch. He departed Sunday's 16-0 win versus the Texans due to a knee injury, but the issue isn't believed to be severe, according to James Palmer of NFL Network. Sanders was listed as limited on Monday's estimated injury report, so it'll be interesting to see if he's able to progress to full participation Tuesday.

Sanders (knee) was listed as a limited participant in Monday's practice estimate, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanders didn't play after halftime of Sunday's win over the Titans, and he wasn't himself during the first half. His limited participation is just an estimate since the Broncos didn't host an actual practice Monday, but it supports the Broncos' belief that he'll be ready for Thursday's game against the Chiefs. Still, fantasy gamers should keep a close eye on how Sanders practices Tuesday and Wednesday.

Sanders' knee injury is not believed to be serious, according to James Palmer of NFL Network.

EDGE Analysis

Sanders was unable to finish Sunday's game against the Titans because of his injury, but the report indicates there is "not much concern" about his status for Week 7, even with the Broncos' next game coming Thursday night against the Chiefs. Sanders' participation, or lack thereof, in practice over the coming days figures to ultimately determine his availability for Thursday's game, but fantasy players have reason to be optimistic.

Sanders was forced out of Sunday's game against the Titans with a knee injury, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Sanders wasn't listed with a designation on the Broncos' final injury report of the week, he was limited at practice Wednesday and Friday, so it's possible that he's aggravated the issue that led to those limitations. Prior to his exit from Sunday's contest, Sanders caught one pass (on three targets) for zero yards.

Sanders (knee) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, Mike Klis of NBC 9News Denver reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanders was limited at Wednesday's session but now looks on track to play Sunday against the Titans, barring a setback. Through five games, Sanders has been effective when targeted, recording at least 80 yards in every game in which he has drawn more than five looks. Unfortunately, in the two games that Sanders received five or less targets he caught three passes combined, giving him a boom-or-bust outlook at this point in the season. He will look to put forth a strong showing against a Titans defense that ranks tenth in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game.

Sanders (knee) was one of nine players the Broncos listed as limited at Wednesday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

The same applies to fellow wideout Courtland Sutton (lower leg), though at this stage there's nothing to suggest that either player is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Titans. More of a concern for those who roster Sanders is that his production has been up and down over his last four outings. In Week 5, the 32-year-old hauled in his only target for nine yards.

Sanders caught his lone target for a nine-yard gain during Sunday's 20-13 win over the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Sanders' Jekyll-and-Hyde season continued as he posted 10 yards or fewer for the second time this season. He has gone for at least 85 yards in his other three contests. Head coach Vic Fangio pointed out that Sanders still managed to help the offense with a drawn pass-interference call and noted that, after the first quarter, the offense as a whole went into a lull. Sanders has shown that he can still put up quality numbers, but the overall inconsistency of the offense and emergence of sophomore Courtland Sutton -- who has three touchdowns over his last two games -- should create a little pause before starting the veteran against a tough Titans defense.
