Broncos believe that WR Emmanuel Sanders tore his Achilles during practice today, per source. Team usually can tell right away, but it will conduct tests on Sanders to confirm. But early belief is torn Achilles.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) December 5, 2018

With Sanders now feared to be on the shelf for the remainder of the season, the Broncos and fantasy owners need to look elsewhere to replicate his production.
For the Broncos, Courtland Sutton now becomes their No. 1 receiver. The rookie has had his moments since the team traded away star wideout Demaryius Thomas, highlighted by a 4-catch, 85-yard and 1-touchdown performance in Week 13.
