Sanu caught all three of his targets for 34 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 34-31 win over the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu incredibly hauled in a two-yard touchdown with one hand on Atlanta's second drive of the game. In doing so, the veteran has now found the end zone in three of his last four appearances. Even though he's only topped 40 yards once over that span, his nose for pay dirt has certainly helped his stock.

Sanu snagged three of five passes for 29 yards in Sunday's 27-7 win over Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

The game broke a two-week scoring streak for Sanu, who opened the season with just one touchdown in five games. Sanu is a consistent performer, with at least three catches in all but one outing this season, but doesn't put up typical No. 2 receiver numbers given the diversity of Atlanta's offense. He's topped 50 yards just thrice this season and has yet to exceed 85 yards this season.

Sanu brought in all three of his targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

His reception and yardage totals may have been underwhelming, but Sanu salvaged the day from a fantasy perspective when he brought in a six-yard scoring strike from Matt Ryan in the first quarter. The veteran wideout has gotten into the end zone in consecutive weeks and has notched at least four receptions in six of eight contests. Sanu will look to make his mark in a Week 10 battle versus the Cowboys.

Sanu hauled in six of seven targets for 74 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-20 win over the Jets.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu paced the Falcons in receptions and drew even with Julio Jones for the lead in receiving yardage. The veteran went up high to snare a scoring toss from Matt Ryan early in the fourth quarter, making an impressive grab on a wet football for his second touchdown of the season. Sanu has seen 17 targets over the last two games, and no less than six in all but one game this season. While his yardage upside is relatively capped, Sanu continues to be an above-average PPR option and remains on pace to exceed the career-high 59 catches he notched last season. He'll look to continue producing against the Panthers in Week 9.

Sanu caught six balls for 65 yards against the Patriots, but the Falcons lost 23-7.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu was targeted 10 times on the day, which trailed only Julio Jones, who was targeted 13 times. It appears that Sanu's hamstring injury is officially behind him, and he could benefit if teams decide to double team Jones. His return also means fewer targets for guys like Taylor Gabriel and Justin Hardy.

Though he remained limited at Friday's practice, Sanu (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in New England, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

A week 5 bye allowed Sanu to miss only one game while recovering from an injury that came with a timetable of two-to-three weeks. Sunday will mark exactly three weeks since he injured his hamstring, and he'll draw a favorable matchup against a banged-up New England secondary that was struggling even when it was healthy.

Sanu (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After injuring his hamstring in Week 4, Sanu appears to be upholding his 2-to-3 recovery timetable. Due to fortuitous scheduling -- i.e. a Week 5 bye -- he may only miss one game as a result, but the Falcons will likely want him to conclude the week symptom-free or, at the very least, without suffering a setback before clearing him to return.

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn revealed during a guest appearance on 92-9 The Game that Sanu (hamstring) would take part in practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

It remains to be seen if Sanu will be a limited or full participant in the Falcons' first practice session of the week, but either way, it's a sign that he's at least noticed progress in his recovery from the hamstring injury after failing to practice in any capacity in the week leading up to Sunday's loss to the Dolphins. After top wideout Julio Jones, depth receivers Taylor Gabriel (eight), Justin Hardy (three) and Marvin Hall (two) all saw spikes in targets in the losing effort, with Hall hauling in the first touchdown of his NFL career. If Sanu is able to play in Week 7 against the Patriots, Gabriel, Hardy and Hall would all likely see their involvement in the passing game take a hit.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn confirmed that Sanu (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against Miami, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu was unable to return to practice coming out of a bye week, but he did at least do some rehab running off to the side at Friday's session, according to Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site. Taylor Gabriel figures to fill in as the No. 2 receiver, with Justin Hardy likely joining Gabriel and Julio Jones when the Falcons deploy three-wide formations. Tight ends Austin Hooper and Levine Toilolo may also pick up a few extra snaps in Sanu's absence.

Sanu (hamstring) isn't expected to play in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu hasn't practiced all week and likely will be ruled out on the final injury report. His expected absence should free up additional snaps for Taylor Gabriel and Justin Hardy.
