Mohamed Sanu WR CIN 2 Months

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.

According to, Mohamed Sanu is having a "monster" training camp.

Sanu is getting plenty of reps with the first-team offense while Marvin Jones is sidelined with a tweaked hamstring. Sanu has been lining up all over the field, playing receiver, quarterback, and running back. There's speculation he could have a role similar to Raiders FB Marcel Reece, who was coached by new Bengals OC Hue Jackson. Sanu will be more valuable in real life than fantasy.

The Bengals' website suggests Mohamed Sanu could be utilized in a role similar to Raiders FB Marcel Reece.

New Bengals OC Hue Jackson was Reece's offensive coordinator and head coach 2010-2011 in Oakland. Reece finished 2010 with 55 touches, and 2011 with 44 in 12 games. Sanu was also a versatile player at Rutgers, lining up at quarterback, tailback, and wideout. Sanu isn't as good of an athlete as Reece, however. We're not expecting Sanu to make any noise in 2014 fantasy leagues.

Mohamed Sanu projects primarily as a slot receiver this season.

The talent gap between Sanu and Marvin Jones is wide. Jones is fully expected to win the No. 2 job in camp, leaving Sanu off the field when run-centric OC Hue Jackson employs "12" formations. Sanu is a poor bet to reach the 47-455-2 line he posted a year ago.

Mohamed Sanu caught one ball for 13 yards in the Bengals' playoff loss to the Chargers.

Playing a reduced playoff role behind Marvin Jones, Sanu's name was rarely mentioned throughout Sunday's loss. After scoring four touchdowns in eight games as a 2012 rookie, Sanu was severely outplayed throughout 2013 by Jones, finishing with a 47-455-2 line and as the No. 76 overall fantasy receiver. Lacking playmaking ability, possession receiver Sanu won't be worth consideration in 2014 re-draft leagues. His Dynasty value is minimal.

Mohamed Sanu caught one pass for 12 yards in Week 17 against the Ravens.

Sanu was targeted just twice and continues to lose snaps to Marvin Jones on the outside and Andrew Hawkins out of the slot. He's nothing more than the No. 3 or 4 receiver and sixth or seventh option in the passing game. Sanu's sophomore season ends with 47 catches for 455 yards and two touchdowns. He'll merely be a rotational player for the playoffs.
