Emmanuel Sanders is staying with the Pittsburgh Steelers! Expect Pittsburgh to try to free up some money and sign Sanders to a multi-year extension now. While it appears Sanders will step into the starting position vacated by Mike Wallace, now in Miami, the Steelers will probably still choose to draft a wide receiver in the first two rounds. Wide receiver and a pass rushing OLB are the two greatest positions of need for the team.

The decision to keep Sanders solidifies two positions for Pittsburgh as Antonio Brown needs a legitimate deep threat to open the underneath and middle routes that he runs. Sanders should better his career highs from last season of 44/626 but his red zone production is a concern for owners with two touchdowns being his previous high. For now consider Sanders a WR4 in both dynasty and redraft leagues, startable as a WR3 depending on matchups.
