Our friends at numberFire, put out their weekly Top 20 offensive players list and finally we have some Denver Broncos players to brag about. Emmanuel Sanders was fourth on the list after he went bonkers with 7 catches for 162 yards and a touchdown, while Trevor Siemian was sixth after having himself a 368 yard and three touchdown pass day.
Only Trevor Siemian (18.90) and Ben Roethlisberger (17.52) topped 15.00 on the week so far ... As for the receivers, Emmanuel Sanders won the week with 7 catches on 10 targets for 162 yards and a score (14.60 Reception NEP).
I wasn’t joking when I suggested that Trevor Siemian might just be the future the Broncos are looking for at quarterback, especially if he keeps up with the kind of performance he had on Sunday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs.
As for Sanders, well ... that’s why he got himself paid before the season started. Sanders, with five games still to go, has 61 catches for 830 yards. He’ll break that thousand yard barrier easily.
If the offense stays hot, this team will get hot. There is no way the defense stumbles multiple games like they did during the final three drives against the Chiefs last weekend.
