Recent Player News

  • Posted: 10/18/2018 2:41pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has played well this season but is a risky option this week because of his uncertain status. Owners will need to have other options available if Sanu is ruled out.

  • Posted: 10/15/2018 5:01pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) hopefully will be able to play in the team's Week 7 game, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    Huddle Up: Sanu missed the second half of the Week 6 game because of the injury, so owners will need to keep an eye out for his practice participation. He has been playing well this season and can be at least a No. 3 fantasy receiver if he plays this week.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 8:01pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught both of his targets for 46 yards and a touchdown in a 34-29 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Sanu isn't consistent enough to be an every-week fantasy starter, but he's a decent flex candidate against friendlier matchups.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 12:23pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) suffered a hip injury during the Week 6 game and is considered questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has been playing very well this season, so any missed time would hurt fantasy owners. The Falcons should update his status in the next day or two.

  • Posted: 10/11/2018 1:26pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) practiced on a limited basis Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Sanu and the Falcons will be part of a high-flying doozy on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Sanu is a lower-level option, but starting him as a WR3 or flex is still recommended.

  • Posted: 10/10/2018 3:06pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has played well in the last two games with 184 combined yards in those games and has been targeted at least seven times in each of the last three games. He should have a favorable matchup this week and can be a No. 3 fantasy receiver.

  • Posted: 10/7/2018 1:40pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught four passes for 73 yards and one touchdown against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has posted back-to-back solid performances and has been targeted 16 times during that span. He should have a favorable matchup next week and could be a No. 3 receiver or flex option.

  • Posted: 10/5/2018 11:46am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 5, and is not on the injury report for Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has been targeted 16 times in the last two games and is coming off his first 100-yard game of the season. He will have a good matchup this week against the Pittsburgh Steelers and can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 10/3/2018 3:46pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 3.

    Huddle Up: Sanu is coming off a terrific Week 4 performance and should receive a solid amount of targets against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week. He can be a decent flex option for owners.

  • Posted: 9/30/2018 3:05pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu finished with six catches for 111 yards one nine targets in Week 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals, his former team.

    Huddle Up: Sanu stepped up and performed well against the team which jettisoned him after the 2015 season. He posted 1,893 receiving yards on 152 grabs with 11 touchdowns in his first four NFL seasons in Cincinnati. Next up is a trip to Pittsburgh in Week 5. He still remains more of a WR4 or flex fantasy option in most leagues due to the emergence of rookie Calvin Ridley in the pass game.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 4:47pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted four receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints on seven targets.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has one more touchdown than Julio Jones so far through three games. He'll try to keep up the scoring ways when his former team, the Cincinnati Bengals, pay a visit in Week 4. Treat him as a low-end RB4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams for that one.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 3:02pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted two grabs for just 19 yards on two targets in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers and he ran once for minus-4 yards.

    Huddle Up: Sanu and his fantasy owners won't like the fact he totaled just three touches in the victory, and it appears Calvin Ridley has surpassed him on the depth chart. It will be a battle to watch going forward. Sanu should be treated as a WR5 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 3 against the Saints.

  • Posted: 9/6/2018 10:27pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught four passes for 18 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 1.

    Huddle Up: Sanu finished second on the team in receptions and targets (six), but 4.5 yards per catch isn't going to get it done. He's a WR4/WR5 that should only be used in advantageous matchups.

  • Posted: 1/13/2018 5:09pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught three passes for 50 yards in the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles Saturday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: Sanu was a solid contributor in the team's passing game this season and finished the regular season with 703 yards and five touchdowns. He should be one of the starting receivers again in 2018 and can be a low-end No. 3 or a No. 4 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 1/11/2018 11:14am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 11, but is not on the injury report for the Divisional Round playoff game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Huddle Up: Sanu and Julio Jones coexisted as well last week as they had all season. Jones, Sanu and Devonta Freeman are clearly Matt Ryan's go-to targets. Sanu can be started as a WR2 or flex even in a difficult matchup versus the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Posted: 1/10/2018 2:24pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 10.

    Huddle Up: Sanu recorded four catches for 75 yards last week and should receive a solid amount of targets against the Philadelphia Eagles. He can be considered a No. 2 fantasy receiver or flex option in leagues.

  • Posted: 1/9/2018 3:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) practiced on a limited basis Tuesday, Jan. 9.

    Huddle Up: Sanu saw a season-high 11 targets in the Falcons' big playoff victory last week, tallying seven catches for 71 yards. Even in a tough matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, Sanu shouldn't be overlooked in daily fantasy games.

  • Posted: 1/6/2018 8:55pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught four passes on eight targets for 75 yards in a 26-13 win over the Los Angeles Rams Saturday, Jan. 6.

    Huddle Up: Sanu doesn't come close to matching the upside of his teammate, Julio Jones, but as the teams still alive in the playoffs dwindle, you could do a lot worse than Sanu when it comes to finding a WR3.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 4:09pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 22, and is not on the injury report for Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has posted at least 50 yards in only two of the last eight games but does have three touchdowns during that span. He will be facing an improved New Orleans Saints pass defense but could still be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 12/21/2017 3:19pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Owners should check on Sanu's status later in the week to see if he is in any danger of missing Week 16. He is coming off a disappointing Week 15 performance but will continue to be a starting receiver for the Falcons. He has a chance to be a flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/20/2017 4:14pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 20.

    Huddle Up: Sanu should be fine for the team's Week 16 game but is coming off a disappointing Week 15 performance. He has been targeted at least five times in each of the last four games and could be at least a flex option in some deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/18/2017 9:32pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu was held to only two catches on five targets for 23 yards in the team's Week 15 victory Monday, Dec. 18, versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He added one three-yard rush as well.

    Huddle Up: You'd think that if Julio Jones (five catches for 54 yards) had an off game, Sanu would be a beneficiary of that but alas, that wasn't the case, as the former Cincinnati Bengal was awfully quiet as well. In general, he's a pretty volatile option, with plenty of games in which he registered less than 30 receiving yards, so his owners can't be surprised when it happens here and there.

  • Posted: 12/16/2017 11:14am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) was limited during practice Saturday, Dec. 15, but is not on the injury report for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has been targeted 23 times over the last three games and is coming off a 83-yard performance in Week 14. He should have a favorable matchup this week and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option.

  • Posted: 12/15/2017 2:47pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: Sanu should be able to play this week despite the injury. He is coming off a terrific Week 14 performance where he recorded 83 yards and one touchdown. He should have a favorable matchup and can be a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in leagues.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 3:36pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: With the club's game on Monday night this week, Sanu should be perfectly fine in time for kickoff. He's coming off an outing that saw him record his most yards (83) since Week 2, doing so with a healthy six catches on eight targets. He also scored his fifth touchdown of the year. With Tampa Bay having the worst pass defense entering Week 15, Sanu is a logical WR3 candidate.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 9:38pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu tallied six receptions (on eight targets), 83 yards and a touchdown in the team's three-point win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has been up and down this year, but by scoring Thursday night he has now logged a touchdown in four of his last seven games. While Sanu has some value in larger leagues, he's not someone you want to pin your playoff hopes on.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 1:55pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught 43 yards on three catches against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has been held to under 50 yards in four of the last five games but does have three touchdowns in the last six games. He should receive a solid amount of targets against the New Orleans Saints but is not a must-start option.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 2:04pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught eight passes for 64 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12. He also threw a 51-yard touchdown pass during the game.

    Huddle Up: Sanu was fairly quiet over the last three weeks prior to Week 12 but does have three touchdowns in his last five games. He should receive a decent amount of targets next week but would not be a strong fantasy option.

  • Posted: 11/12/2017 8:52pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted three receptions for 29 yards on five targets in Week 10 against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has three or more receptions in seven of his eight games, but he has gone backwards with just 52 total receiving yards over the past two outings. Still, he isn't a bad low-end WR3 or flex option in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 2:15pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu racked up three receptions for 23 yards and a touchdown on his three targets in Week 9 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Sanu's yardage total wasn't great, but he was able to score a touchdown for the second straight game and third time in five outings. He remains more of a WR4 or flex option heading into Week 10 against the Cowboys.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 1:33pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught six passes for 74 yards and one touchdown against the New York Jets in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has posted back-to-back solid performances and was targeted 17 times during the span. He appears to have a good role in the passing game and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 10/23/2017 4:54am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught six passes for 65 yards in a Week 7 loss to the New England Patriots.

    Huddle Up: Considering Sanu came back from a hamstring problem, these numbers aren't bad at all. Sanu is one of the bigger weapons in the Falcons' offense and should merit WR3 or flex status in future weeks.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 2:36pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 19.

    Huddle Up: It's hard not to like any offensive player in the Atlanta Falcons - New England Patriots tilt. Sanu was playing well before succumbing to his hamstring injury in Week 4. If he's not on a snap count then he's worth a look as a WR3 or flex.
