    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) fully participated in practice Saturday, Sept. 24, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

    Huddle Up: Sanu likely will be one of the starting receivers for the Falcons this week and should see a decent amount of targets. He could be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues because of the favorable matchup.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 5:54pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 24.

    Huddle Up: Sanu appears to be on track to play in Week 3, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. Sanu could have a bigger role against the New Orleans Saints if Julio Jones is not able to play. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but can be avoided in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/15/2016 10:33am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) will be limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 15, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn said Sanu hopefully will be a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 16.

    Huddle Up: Sanu is coming off a terrific Week 1 performance and should be able to play in Week 2 unless he suffers a setback. He should be considered a No. 3 receiver in deeper leagues and a flex option in other leagues.

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn noted Sanu is expected to be a larger participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 15, though.

    Huddle Up: Sanu secured five of eight targets for 80 yards and a score in Week 1, and he led the Falcons receivers in offensive snaps (56 of 65). He projects to see a healthy target share in the offense and checks out as a potential low-end starter in deep leagues with more long-term value in PPR setups.

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) tweaked an ankle in the Week 1 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he was seen limping heavily in the locker room after the game.

    Huddle Up: Sanu managed 80 yards and a touchdown on five receptions, and he was tied for a team-high in targets with eight. The move to Atlanta appears to have paid huge dividends for Sanu. As long as he isn't forced to miss time, he looks like a legitimate WR3 in most fantasy leagues, filling the void of the departed Roddy White well through his first game.

  • Posted: 7/10/2016 2:10am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu has been developing chemistry with QB Matt Ryan during spring practices, and Ryan said he has been impressed with how strong Sanu's hands are.

    Huddle Up: Sanu is expected to give Ryan an alternative to Julio Jones in the Falcons passing game. And while playing second fiddle to Julio puts a cap on Sanu's potential numbers, there should be more than enough opportunity for him to carve out fantasy value in Atlanta.

  • Posted: 3/22/2016 10:23am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu will take over the No. 2 wideout job opposite WR Julio Jones. 'Sanu is a legitimate No. 2 for us, is a great compliment to Julio Jones,' general manager Thomas Dimitroff said in a satellite radio interview Monday, March 21.

    Huddle Up: The Falcons didn't overpay Sanu to not start, nor did he leave Cincy to remain a third wheel, so he'll get every opportunity to emerge as Julio's wingman. That leaves Justin Hardy battling for the third receiver role in Atlanta.

  • Posted: 3/10/2016 8:52am ET

    Updating previous reports, free-agent WR Mohamed Sanu (Bengals) is visiting Atlanta to officially sign a deal worth $7 million per year with the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: Sanu was an occasionally productive receiver with limited opportunities in Cincinnati; he's likely walking into more targets in Atlanta, with openings available opposite Julio Jones now that Roddy White has been given his walking papers.

  • Posted: 3/9/2016 8:56am ET

    Free-agent WR Mohamed Sanu (Bengals) is drawing interest from the Tennessee Titans, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Titans will have to battle Hue Jackson and the Browns, who are expected to make a strong play for Sanu as well.

  • Posted: 2/23/2016 9:23am ET

    The Cleveland Browns, Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants are all expected to express interest in Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WR Mohamed Sanu if he becomes available. Sanu had 33 catches for 394 yards and no touchdowns as his role diminished last year. He's seeking a larger role with a new team.

    Huddle Up: The Browns make sense because new coach (and former Bengals OC) Hue Jackson is familiar with Sanu's skills. The Falcons and Giants make sense as both are looking for a complementary receiver to their current stud WR1s--a role which would still keep Sanu in the shadows but at least move him up from third receiver status. He'll receive plenty of attention this offseason.

  • Posted: 2/19/2016 9:52am ET

    Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WR Mohamed Sanu has virtually no chance to re-sign with the Bengals, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: No surprise here, as both Sanu and Marvin Jones are expected to find gigs in which they're not playing in AJ Green's shadow. We'll see who offers the most favorable payday... and what the Bengals do to replace their receiver depth.
