Update: Emmanuel Sanders (illness) made the trip to Cincinnati for Monday's game.

Sanders is expected to play Monday, and this is obviously the first step in that process. If you are planning to play Sanders, you should probably pick up Wes Welker or Mohamed Sanu just in case Sanders is a late scratch.

Head coach John Fox said he expects Emmanuel Sanders (questionable, illness) to make the trip to Cincinnati.

Peyton Manning listed as questionable heading into Monday Night's game.

Well, he was limited in practice on Saturday, but it would be a huge surprise if he was not the starting QB for Denver on Monday. He did practice all week, and while his recent performance has not been too studly for his fantasy owners, he is still a top QB option. Still, Cincy does have a tough pass defense, so tread carefully with Manning on Monday.

Emmanuel Sanders is not practicing Saturday. He was sent home with flu-like symptoms.

While it is never good to lose your No. 2 WR, Cincinnati is much easier to run on than attack through the air. Sanders may recover in time to play on Monday night, but puttinghim in your lineup is risky given the timing of the game.

Juwan Thompson (knee, hip) returned to a limited practice Friday.

With Ronnie Hillman expected to return, the urgency to get Thompson back onto the field may not be as significant. Still, the Broncos would love for him to stay on the field and handle some of the short-yardage work. The fact that the game is Monday should help his chances, but the team would love for him to put in something closer to a full practice Saturday.

Cody Latimer (concussion) practiced in full this week.

Latimer will be available for Monday's game but considering where he is in the pecking order for targets in the Denver offense, he's virtually unusable in most fantasy formats.

C.J. Anderson (ankle) practiced in full on Friday.

Anderson is healthy and ready to go Monday night. Peyton Manning owners may want to worry as Anderson's breakout season gets to continue against the Bengals' 30th-ranked run defense. The Broncos will establish the ground game early and often.

Demaryius Thomas (ankle) practiced in full on Friday.

Thomas' ankle doesn't seem to be much of an issue and he will be on the field Monday night to face the Bengals. He remains a must-start in all formats.

Ronnie Hillman (foot) was limited in practice on Friday.

Hillman has been out since week 11 due to a foot strain, and there's a chance that he'll be able to return for Monday's game. With C.J. Anderson playing extremely well right now, the Broncos have no need to rush Hillman back, and even when Hillman is back, he doesn't have much value as he is currently the backup running back.

Peyton Manning (thigh) was back to a full practice Friday.

While he's posted a pair of lousy games recently, Manning remains a must-start in all formats. His thigh injury is of no concern here.
