Falcons | Mohamed Sanu practices in full

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 12:06:09 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu limited

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 17:54:49 -0700

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

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu will play Week 2

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 09:53:51 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was a full participant in practice Friday, Sept. 16, and will play Week 2 against the Oakland Raiders Sunday, Sept. 18, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Fantasy Tip: After grabbing five of eight targets for 80 yards and a score in Week 1, Sanu is a potential starter as a WR3 or flex option in the majority of leagues. It's worth noting he has a higher floor in PPR settings, though.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu will be limited

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 10:33:35 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Falcons | Limited practice for Mohamed Sanu

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 09:56:45 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu limping after game

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 17:37:19 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu in tune with Matt Ryan

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 12:51:07 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu and QB Matt Ryan showed excellent chemistry Thursday, July 28. Ryan hit Sanu in stride and connected with the receiver on a number of timing throws where Sanu ran crisp routes.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu should open the season as the No. 2 wide receiver. However, his athleticism is nothing more than mediocre, and he'll have sophomore Justin Hardy to hold off. Sano is set to have a nice season in PPR settings, but expectations should still be kept in check, Hardy could prove to be more talented. Also, Atlanta will utilize their running backs in the passing game frequently, and Julio Jones will have a significant chunk of the target share. Sano is a low-end WR3 in PPR settings with even less value in standard formats.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu bonding with QB

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 21:14:36 -0700

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu has bonded with QB Matt Ryan, working together at Ryan's passing camp in Orlando, and throughout June minicamp. The duo built chemistry as the practices wore on. "He's got great hands," Ryan said. "One of the things I noticed right from the start is how strong his hands are. He's a really good worker. I think he can really help us."

Fantasy Tip: Sanu will step into the role vacated by veteran Roddy White. He has never posted more than 790 receiving yards in a season, but that should change in 2016. If not, he will be a huge fantasy bust since he shouldn't slip past the middle rounds in most formats on draft day.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu impressing Matt Ryan

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 20:54:11 -0700

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.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu is going to open the year as the No. 2 receiver across from Julio Jones. While it remains to be seen if he can thrive in a larger role, he is in a position to be a low-end WR2 in 2016.

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu working with teammates

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 15:44:47 -0700

Updating a previous report, Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu is among a group of Falcons working together in Florida. QB Matt Ryan, RB Devonta Freeman and WR Julio Jones are also among the group of players, as reported earlier.

Fantasy Tip: This is a good decision by Sanu and the Falcons to get together before offseason activities start. It's an especially good move by the newly acquired Sanu, who can get a jumpstart on becoming familiar with his quarterback and his teammates. For now, Sanu is in WR4 territory as the Falcons' No. 2 wide receiver.
