Can Emmanuel Sanders be a top 12 WR Rest of Season?

Can Emmanuel Sanders be a top 12 WR Rest of Season?

Emmanuel Sanders is still one of the leagues top wide receivers and since joining the San Francisco 49ers he has been nothing but great for your fantasy football team. The question about Sanders will be can he finish the season as a top 12 wide receiver.

Sanders is currently the wide receiver 19 on the season. His stat line on the season is 41 receptions on 58 targets for 504 yards and 4 touchdowns. In each of his two games with the 49ers we have seen Sanders score a touchdown in each game.

There is no doubt in my mind that Jimmy Garappolo is better than Joe Flacco. Sanders in his first game caught 4 of 5 for 25 yards and a score and then on a short week against Patrick Peterson and the Arizona Cardinals he caught 7 of 9 for 112 yards and a score.

In this offense Sanders is the clear cut number one wide receiver and is pushing George Kittle for the number one receiving option on the entire team. This is an offense that is going to have to pass the ball in order to stay in the game with their upcoming schedule.

Sanders has a ton of fantasy value and is someone who has played himself into your starting lineup week in and week out. At the very least he has to be in your flex. He is definitely someone I am willing to trade for if I can get him on the cheap side.

Over the last two games since joining the 49ers Sanders is inside the top 10 at the wide receiver position and I predict this continue for the rest of the season and he push some receivers for that number 12 spot on the season.
