Sanu had four catches on eight targets for 95 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Jaguars.

Despite the return of A.J. Green from a toe injury, Sanu still managed to lead the team in targets and receiving yards while scoring his third touchdown in the last five games. As Green continues to play, Sanu will likely see a decrease in targets, though he's got excellent chemistry with quarterback Andy Dalton right now, so he should be a popular target again Thursday against the Browns.

Sanu had five catches on nine targets for 125 yards Sunday against the Ravens.

Sanu continues to be heavily used with A.J. Green out again due to a toe injury, and he's produced with his targets, breaking the 100-yard mark or scoring a touchdown in three of the last four games. Green is expected to return in Week 9 against the Jaguars, but there should be plenty of balls to go around for the both of them against a defense allowing the fourth-most passing yards per game this season.

Sanu has three catches on nine targets for 54 yards Sunday against the Colts.

Sanu came into the game with 15 catches on 23 targets for 190 yards and two touchdowns in the last two weeks combined, but he struggled to get much going against the Colts as quarterback Andy Dalton threw 20 incompletions. With top wideout A.J. Green possibly returning next week against the Ravens, Sanu could move back to his No. 2 role, which would likely result in a dip in his target-count.

Sanu had 10 catches on 14 targets for 120 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Panthers.

Sanu was the top wideout Sunday with A.J. Green inactive due to a toe injury, and he came up huge in the overtime tie. He has scored touchdowns in back-to-back games, grabbing 25 targets in that span. Green's status for Week 7 against the Colts has yet to be determined, but Sanu figures to play a big role whether Green plays or not.

Sanu caught 5-of-9 targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 43-17 loss to the Patriots.

Sanu led the team in targets as the Bengals ran just 48 offensive plays. He didn't do much outside of his 37-yard touchdown, producing just 33 yards and a drop on his other eight looks. With Marvin Jones (foot) expected to return within the next few weeks, Sanu may soon lose a sizable chunk of his playing time. However, he could make for a surprisingly strong option until Jones returns, as the Bengals lack viable pass-catchers behind A.J. Green.

Sanu had five receptions for 44 yards, and threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to quarterback Andy Dalton in Sunday's blowout win over Tennessee.

Sanu hooked up with Dalton late in the first quarter, in one of the most exciting plays of the week. While he doesn't always put up big fantasy numbers, Sanu continues to make highlight-reel plays. On a down note, Marvin Jones (foot) might return in Week 5, after Cincinnati's bye week, which would cut into Sanu's targets.

Sanu caught three passes on four targets for 76 yards and a touchdown, and he also completed a pass to Brandon Tate for 50 yards during Sunday's 24-10 win over the Falcons.

Sanu's day was highlighted by his 76-yard touchdown grab against an all-out blitz that put the Falcons up 17-3. Wideout A.J. Green was forced out of the game with a toe injury and if he can't play in Week 3 against the Titans, Sanu will be the top receiver on the depth chart.

Sanu caught four passes (on five targets) for 36 yards and also rushed once for four yards in Sunday's season opener against the Ravens.

Sanu is currently entrenched as the Bengals' No. 2 wideout in wake of Marvin Jones' (foot) injury. While his production was modest at best Sunday, Sanu could enjoy some increased involvement in Cincinnati's offense now that tight end Tyler Eifert (elbow) has been ruled out until at least Week 11.

Sanu caught two passes for 56 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets.

Sanu capped off the Bengals' opening drive with a 43-yard touchdown on a perfectly thrown deep post from the hand of Andy Dalton. Previously expected to work as Cincy's No. 3 wide receiver, Sanu is now slated to start across from A.J. Green, after Marvin Jones suffered a broken foot. Though he'll see more snaps as a result of Jones' injury, Sanu will likely spend less time working out of the slot. The Bengals hope to have Jones back after their Week 4 bye.

Because Marvin Jones is out with a broken foot, Sanu will get more snaps, but he'll also have to move from the slot to the outside, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Sanu has drawn raves in camp for how he's looked so far, but this moves him away from his strength and puts him up against better defenders. So while his overall value probably goes up as a result of Jones's injury, it might not be by as much as one would expect.
