Mohamed Sanu caught 1-of-2 targets for six yards and rushed two times for 11 yards in the Bengals' Week 17 win over the Ravens.
It's a standard day at the office for Sanu. The gadget player and No. 3 receiver did some Wildcat stuff and lined up at receiver for a handful of routes. Though he's the No. 3 receiver, he's also behind Giovani Bernard and Tyler Eifert for targets. Sanu ends the regular season with a 33-394-0 receiving line and 71 yards and two touchdowns as a rusher. He won't be a fantasy option in the playoffs. Sanu is a better real-life player than fantasy one. Jan 4 - 12:11 AM

Mohamed Sanu rushed two times for 10 yards and one touchdown and caught 3-of-3 targets for 29 yards in the Bengals' Week 16 loss to the Broncos.

The 29 yards were Sanu's most since Week 6. The rarely-used No. 3 receiver is a jack of all trades for the Cincinnati offense. He's a much better real-life player than fantasy one. The Bengals used Sanu in Wildcat a couple times, and he scored his six-yard rushing touchdown that way, walking into the end zone untouched on a sweep to the left.

Mohamed Sanu caught 2-of-5 targets for 24 yards in the Bengals' Week 14 loss to the Steelers.

The Bengals' rarely-used No. 3 receiver is simply a gadget player. With a weekly floor of zero, Sanu shouldn't be owned in 14-team leagues.

Mohamed Sanu rushed once for seven yards and missed his lone target in the Bengals' Week 13 win over the Browns.

A gadget guy-slash-slot receiver, Sanu had a very minimal role in a game where Andy Dalton needed 14 completions to rout the Browns 37-3. Sanu is not worth owning in 14-team fantasy leagues.

Mohamed Sanu absorbed his only target for eight yards in the Bengals' Week 12 win over the Rams.

He only has four catches over his last three games and has only scored once all season. Even in deeper leagues, Sanu doesn’t have much to offer fantasy owners.

Mohamed Sanu caught 2-of-3 targets for 19 yards in Week 11.

Sanu had a rushing touchdown called back, but was otherwise a non-factor. He has 11 targets the last four games. Sanu gets the Rams in Week 12.

Mohamed Sanu secured all three of his targets for 25 yards and added a 25-yard rushing touchdown in the Bengals' Week 9 win over the Browns.

His touchdown came on a thrilling reverse play in the fourth quarter. Sanu is a fun gadget player with endless athleticism but his fantasy contributions are few and far between. He’ll get the Texans in Week 10.

Mohamed Sanu caught 2-of-4 targets for 30 yards in the Bengals' Week 6 win over the Bills.

Sanu continues to be mostly an afterthought as the fifth option in the Bengals' loaded passing attack. He's not a realistic fantasy option unless there's an injury.

Mohamed Sanu racked up five catches for 69 yards on five targets in the Bengals' Week 5 win over the Seahawks.

Most of his production came in the second half with the Bengals’ backs against the wall. With A.J. Green blanketed by Richard Sherman and other various members of the Legion of Boom, Sanu took full advantage of his extra breathing room by putting up his second highest receiving total of the season. Sanu has been targeted 11 times over the last two weeks after getting just nine targets in his first three contests. The Rutgers product will be back at it next week against the Bills.

Mohamed Sanu caught 4-of-6 targets for 84 yards in the Bengals' Week 4 win over the Chiefs.

Sanu was the Bengals' receiving yardage leader on a day where Andy Dalton spread the ball around, and game flow prevented Cincinnati from racking up second-half pass attempts. Sanu's big play was a 52-yard gain where he lined up in the slot and piled up yardage after catch on a slant route. Behind A.J. Green, Marvin Jones, Tyler Eifert, and Gio Bernard in the Bengals' pecking order for targets, Sanu isn't worth rostering in fantasy leagues entering a Week 5 date with the Seahawks.
Sun, Oct 4, 2015 04:29:00 PM

Mohamed Sanu caught two of four targets for 28 yards in the Bengals' Week 3 win over the Ravens.

He was an afterthought Sunday as the Bengals chose to feature A.J. Green and Marvin Jones in the passing game. Andy Dalton has targeted Sanu just nine times this season. Sanu will try and pick up the pieces next week against Kansas City.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 05:52:00 PM

Mohamed Sanu caught 1-of-2 targets for 15 yards Week 2 against the Chargers.

Sanu had zero targets in the first half and appears to have fallen behind Marvin Jones on the depth chart. Sanu did get a goal-line look, but he is not getting enough targets to be a fantasy factor right now.
Sun, Sep 20, 2015 05:17:00 PM

Mohamed Sanu caught 2-of-3 targets for 34 yards in the Bengals' Week 1 win over the Raiders.

Sanu appeared to share time with Marvin Jones, who finished with three targets as well. For as long as Jeremy Hill, A.J. Green, and Tyler Eifert are healthy as ballhogs, Sanu will not be an option in fantasy leagues.
Sun, Sep 13, 2015 08:06:00 PM

Mohamed Sanu was held without a catch in the Bengals' third preseason game.

The main takeaway is that Sanu played over Marvin Jones in two-wide sets. Sanu doesn't project for a big role even if he continues to hold off Jones. Tyler Eifert is the Bengals' No. 2 option behind A.J. Green.

Mohamed Sanu led the NFL in dropped passes during the 2014 season.

He dropped 14 despite ranking 45th among wide receivers in targets. Not only does Sanu have shaky hands, he is incapable of separating from man coverage. The Bengals will welcome back Marvin Jones as their No. 2 wideout.
