Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 16 vs DEN (3 / 3 / 29 / 0 rec, 2 / 10 / 1 rush)
Sanu saw little action as a receiver against the Denver Broncos, with three second-half targets. He made a diving grab over the middle for 20 yards to convert 3rd-and-16, then on the next play snatched the ball out of the air at the sideline for another 10 yard gain. Other than those two targets and a quick shotgun dump-off that went nowhere, Sanu's most memorable impact on the game came on a pair of direct snaps at the goal line on Cincinnati's second drive; Sanu ran the first one up the middle for four yards, then raced to the corner on the second for a 6-yard touchdown run.
2015 Week 9 vs CLE (3 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec, 1 / 25 / 1 rush)
Mohamed Sanu has not been a factor in fantasy on a consistent basis for us this year with his usage coming mostly off of gadget plays. He had a nice touchdown run in this game for 25 yards behind Andy Dalton as a lead blocker down the left sideline. He was able to catch all three of his targets for a total of 25 yards.
2015 Week 6 vs BUF (4 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec, 1 / 8 / 0 rush)
Mohamed Sanu was only targeted 4 times in Week 6 that he took for 2 receptions and 30 yards and a long catch of 24-yards. He added an 8-yard rushing attempt in this game as well. This is a loaded passing attack and he was clearly not a big part of the game plan against the Bills even with A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert essentially held in check most of the game.
2015 Week 5 vs SEA (5 / 5 / 69 / 0 rec)
Mohamed Sanu caught all five of his targets against the Seahawks for 69 yards receiving in Week 5. Sanu took full advantage of more coverage going A.J. Green's way, especially in the second half. He did the majority of his damage off of short passes as his long catch of the night was just for a 25-yard gain. Sanu has been targeted 11 times in the past two weeks and remains a viable option in this passing game, although a high variance option in fantasy.
2015 Week 4 vs KC (6 / 4 / 84 / 0 rec)
Mohamed Sanu converted 6 targets into 4 receptions for 84 yards in this game with a long catch of 52 yards late in the first half. This big gain came mostly after the catch as Sanu would line up in the slot and catch a throw from quarterback Andy Dalton on the slant route. Though he led the Bengals in receiving yards in this game the majority of his production came in the first half before the pass attempts tailed off later in the game while the Bengals were protecting the lead on the ground.
2015 Week 3 vs BAL (4 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec, 1 / 6 / 0 rush)
Mohamed Sanu had 4 targets in this game in which he reeled in just 2 receptions for 28 yards. Quarterback Andy Dalton hit Sanu on a slant route where he was able to battle through a couple tackles for a 19-yard gain. His longest play of the night.
2015 Week 2 vs SD (2 / 1 / 15 / 0 rec)
Sanu finished with just one catch for 15 yards in this game but did have a red zone target from quarterback Andy Dalton. It was a fade route to the right corner of the end zone where Dalton overthrows him badly. His catch comes on a 3rd and 20 where he is 5 yards shot of a first down off of a crossing route.
2015 Week 1 vs OAK (3 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec)
Marvin Jones had just 2 receptions for 34 yards against the Raiders Sunday. Off of a fake handoff, Andy Dalton threw a pass to Sanu on the sideline and he gets a great block from A.J. Green to take the ball into the open field largely untouched. This was a 28-yard gain for the Bengals offense. His second catch is almost the same exact play but this time the Raiders are ready for it and shut it down for just a 6-yard gain along the right sideline.
Latest NewsPatriots | Bengals receivers of interest to Patriots? (Sat Jan 30, 02:40 PM) - 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 ESPNBoston.com'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. Our View: The Patriots have to upgrade the WR position. They need to move on from Brandon LaFell, and adding either Marvin Jones or Mohamed Sanu would be the necessary upgrade.
link to story Bengals | Free agency for three Bengals receivers (Tue Jan 26, 07:33 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WRs Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Tate are impending unrestricted free agents this offseason. Our View: The Bengals (like all teams) will have a little bit of time to sign their own free agents before the start of the new league year. While Tate may be gone, they could keep him around to keep contributing on special teams. Sanu is a fine possession receiver, but he may be looking for a larger role. Jones is the guy to keep around above the others, but his price tag is unknown at this time.
