In Fantasy Football today, the depth of a team's wide receivers is critical. Those late-round steals can be the difference between success and failure.
Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has looked outstanding in the Steelers' first two preseason games, and with a general lack of fantasy value among the Steelers' receivers - Antonio Brown has a history of not scoring touchdowns, Heath Miller looks to be on the shelf for at least a few weeks into the season - quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will find immediate comfort and security with Sanders.
It's a contract year for Sanders as well - a player who, throughout his short career, has been productive whenever he's been on the field. Now, with the absence of Mike Wallace, Sanders will get even more looks down the field (13.2 yards per catch and he hasn't run a fly route yet).
You may not even have to draft Sanders at all in 12 team leagues, but he's someone to keep an eye on for waiver moves early in the year.
