Mohamed Sanu | WR | Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu has been impressive this preseason, and he can be used as a receiver, rusher or even occasional quarterback. Sanu has picked up the slack in the passing game in the absence of WR Marvin Jones (foot).
Huddle Up: Sanu started 14 games a year ago and nearly tripled his rookie-season reception total (16 to 47), but that only netted him 10 more fantasy points (48 to 58) with only one double-digit-point game, thanks largely to a passing TD. In short, Sanu may be more versatile than Jones, but he's not in his same fantasy class.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu is generating strong buzz in camp, which could lead to more time in the slot and more catches this season if things work out.
Huddle Up: Sanu projects to be a complementary part of the Bengals' receiver rotation, but if he plays well he could push the currently-sidelined Marvin Jones for wingman duties alongside AJ Green.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu could receive the bulk of snaps in the slot this upcoming season. Nearly half of Sanu's catches in 2013 came when he was the slot receiver.
Huddle Up: Sanu will see more time inside with Andrew Hawkins now gone, and he's a decent bet to finish with the second-most receptions on the squad (behind A.J. Green) after nearly tripling his rookie reception total (16) with 47 last season.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) missed his second straight day of practice Tuesday, Oct. 29. If he can't play in the team's Week 9 game Thursday, Oct. 31, against the Miami Dolphins, then WR Marvin Jones will replace him in two-receiver sets with WR Dane Sanzenbacher taking some snaps out of the slot position. WR Andrew Hawkins, who's expected to be activated to the active roster before the game, is another option.
Huddle Up: One has to wonder if Jones hasn't already moved ahead of Sanu -- injury or not -- after his recent surge has netted 6 TD receptions over the past 3 games. Hawkins' impending activation only further dilutes the targets.

Cincinnati Bengals LB Michael Boley (hamstring), WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) and OT Andrew Whitworth (knee) did not practice Monday, Oct. 28. RB Rex Burkhead (groin) and DE Wallace Gilberry (groin) were each listed as limited participants.
Huddle Up: The shoulder issue aside, Sanu has seen Marvin Jones take over as the team's prime target opposite No. 1 wideout A.J. Green and he only has 2 catches for 36 yards over the past 2 games. That leaves Sanu with fantasy value only in deeper leagues.
