Sanu secured two of three targets for 19 yards in Thursday's 17-6 preseason loss to the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

The presumed No. 2 receiver wasn't targeted often despite Julio Jones' early exit with an ankle injury, yet was efficient with the opportunities he received. Sanu took a fairly wicked shot near the sideline on one of his receptions, but escaped unscathed. While nothing in his skill set particularly stands out, the former Bengal figures to receive a decent amount of attention from Matt Ryan opposite Jones, a role that should also afford him plenty of single coverage as the season unfolds.

Sanu caught three balls for 45 yards in Thursday's preseason win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

His five targets trailed only Nick Williams on the night. If Julio Jones draws consistent double teams, Sanu could be poised for a big year in his first year in Atlanta.

Sanu caught two passes for 18 yards on four targets in Thursday's preseason game against Washington.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu drew one target from Matt Ryan, who failed to complete any of his four pass attempts. The other three targets came on Matt Schaub's first drive, with the completions occurring on consecutive plays. Sanu's five-year, $32.5 million contract seemingly ensures him of the No. 2 wide receiver job, but a strong preseason would still help his cause, as his track record from Cincinnati leaves much to prove.

Sanu has impressed Falcons' quarterback Matt Ryan with the strength of his hands during offseason workouts.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu has occasionally struggled with drops through his first four seasons, but is aiming for a breakout campaign after signing a five-year contract with the Falcons in March. With star teammate Julio Jones surely commanding the bulk of opposing defenses' attention in the passing game, Sanu should have plenty of opportunities to capitalize on single coverage underneath as Atlanta's new No. 2 wideout. While the 26-year-old Sanu has only reached the 50-catch, 500-yard plateau once so far, his offseason work with a Pro Bowl-caliber passer like Ryan should ease his transition into a new offense this season.

The Falcons and Sanu agreed to terms of a five-year contract Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu was slated to visit Atlanta and New England in the search for a new home, but the terms of the contract -- $32.5 million, with $14 million guaranteed, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network -- likely made the decision an easy one. Moreover. Sanu will now work opposite another wideout from the class of 2011, Julio Jones, which should afford him plenty of chances to make a mark. In four seasons with the Bengals, Sanu accounted for 152 catches (on 251 targets), 1,793 yards, and 11 touchdowns in 57 games.

Sanu will visit the Falcons and Patriots on Thursday, ESPN's Josina Anderson reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Bengals already lost Marvin Jones to the Lions, but that doesn't necessarily mean they'll try to retain Sanu, who posted a 33-394-0 receiving line on 50 targets in 2015. Best known for his usefulness on trick plays, Sanu hasn't shown much ability to separate from NFL cornerbacks. He could make a fantasy impact with the receiver-needy Falcons, but he probably wouldn't be any more than a No. 3 or 4 wideout in New England.

The Bengals are on the verge of losing Marvin Jones to the Lions. The team had hoped to retain Jones. Meanwhile, Sanu is also a free agent.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu was rumored to have drawn interest from the Giants earlier. We'll see if Jones's departure heightens the Bengals' urgency.

Sanu can become an unrestricted free agent in March, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu is useful for trick plays, but his inability to get separation from cornerbacks severely limits his value as a receiver. Regardless of where he lands, there isn't much fantasy upside, as it's hard to imagine that any team would view him as anything more than a No. 3 or 4 wide receiver. The Bengals are believed to have interest in retaining Sanu, but No. 2 wideout Marvin Jones -- also an impending free agent -- will likely be the greater priority. Even if Sanu is re-signed and Jones isn't, Sanu would likely be no better than the fourth or fifth option in Cincinnati's passing game.

Sanu secured three of five targets for 17 yards in Saturday's 18-16 Wild Card loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

The fourth-year pro had a quiet game as the Bengals' third wideout option, a fitting end to a season that saw his passing game role deemphasized with the return of teammate Marvin Jones to full health. Sanu tallied a solid 56 receptions on 98 targets in 2014 while Jones sat out the season with foot and ankle injuries, but those numbers fell to 33 and 50, respectively, in 2015. Sanu also failed to get into the end zone all season, and with his rookie contract now expired, may have played his last game in a Bengals uniform.

Sanu caught three passes (on three targets) for 29 yards, and rushed twice for 10 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's loss to the Broncos.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu's second touchdown of the season came on a six-yard run during the second quarter Monday. In fact, both of Sanu's scores have come on the ground this term. Since Sanu has only topped the 50-receiving-yard mark just twice, and not since early October, he holds little fantasy value heading into Week 17's matchup against the Ravens.
