Sanders will get the nod ahead of Antonio Brown if Hines Ward (ankle) is held out Sunday against the Patriots, according to Beaver County Times reporter Mike Bires. Brown has seen more snaps on passing downs the past few games, but Sanders is considered a better route runner. Both are viable WR3 options if Ward ends up sitting out.
Should this news scare any fantasy owners? I too had brought in Brown from waivers hoping he can help me week 8+ and now have read this. Brown has way more targets than Sanders this year, so I wonder what's up.
