Mohamed Sanu | WR | Cincinnati Bengals

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.

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu (foot) appears to be over a foot injury which required season-ending surgery last November. WR Marvin Jones has also impressed, showing good separation and speed in training camp.
Huddle Up: These two will be vying for the No. 2 role across A.J. Green, which could mean some solid fantasy output during the season. Both flashed last season, so it will be interesting to see who comes out the victor. The Bengals might rotate them in throughout the season, which would nullify their fantasy value, but keep an eye on this battle.
