Patriots | Bengals receivers of interest to Patriots?

Sat, 30 Jan 2016 11:40:05 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu could be targets for the New England Patriots this offseason, in the opinion of's Mike Reiss. Reiss believes Jones' route-running ability would translate well in New England's offensive system, and that Sanu could draw interest as an alumnus of the Rutgers, a program for which the Patriots have high regard.

Fantasy Tip: Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell have uncertain futures with the Patriots based on their 2016 contracts, as Reiss also notes, so they could definitely be in the wide receiver market this offseason. New England could also pursue the position through the draft, but Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman will remain their top two playmakers nonetheless.

Bengals | Free agency for three Bengals receivers

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 16:33:59 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WRs Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Tate are impending unrestricted free agents this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Jones will likely be the top free-agent priority, at least among their group of receivers, as he is coming off a career-high 816-yard season. Sanu has also shown flashes, but has not been as involved as Jones when Jones is healthy. Tate may be the odd man out and doesn't hold much fantasy value.

Bengals | Mohamed Sanu works in slot

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 18:36:40 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu entered practice Wednesday, Aug. 19, in the slot in a three-wide formation. It was the first time he worked in the formation during camp. WRs A.J. Green and Marvin Jones were the starters.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu is competing with Jones for the starting job opposite Green, but it appears he is behind in the race for the job and/or the team likes his skillset better out of the slot. He remains a decent WR4 or flex option in leagues of 12 or more fantasy teams.

Bengals | Mohamed Sanu in mix to start

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 18:01:46 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu is in the mix to start opposite WR A.J. Green, but with WR Marvin Jones (ankle, foot) healthy Sanu will have plenty of competition.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu is a player to monitor during training camp and the preseason. Cincinnati's offense, at least in terms of the wideouts, isn't a wide-open style where the top three or four wide receivers have fantasy appeal. If Sanu were to fall into the third wideout role he would have minimal appeal.

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:19:22 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu should be able to play in Week 13 since he is not dealing with an injury. Sanu has not put up terrific numbers over the last few weeks but did find the end zone in Week 12. Sanu costs $5,100 on FantasyScore and could be a good option against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bengals | Mohamed Sanu makes big catch

Sun, 26 Oct 2014 10:10:13 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu caught a 48-yard pass in the first quarter of the team's Week 8 game.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu has been playing well while A.J. Green has been out of the lineup. Sanu likely will continue to be a reliable target for the team even when Green returns and should be at least a weekly flex option for owners.

Bengals | Mohamed Sanu steps up game

Sun, 12 Oct 2014 17:26:39 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu posted a career-high 10 receptions for 120 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 tie against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu stepped up his game with A.J. Green sidelined. With Green expected to sit again in Week 7, Sanu should be a solid WR2/3 or flex play for FantasyScore owners against the Indianapolis Colts.

Bengals | Cincy won't change offensive game plan

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 10:20:58 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) may not play in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, but offensive coordinator Hue Jackson refuses to change the game plan drastically if their receiving star doesn't play. "That's why I never put together a game plan based on one guy," said Jackson. "We're not going to crash our game plan. As a coordinator you just have to adapt. You never know what might happen." WR Mohamed Sanu is tied for the team lead with Green with 17 catches, and WR Dane Sanzenbacher can also be used.
