Summary

#2 wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is just that - a complimentary player who threatened opposing defenses enough to keep them from triple-teaming Julio Jones. Sanu will be 27 when the season starts - he is in the heart of his NFL career. He set a career-high in receptions last season with 81 targets for 59/653/4 receiving, averaging a steady 11.1 yards per catch in his first season as a Falcon. Sanu's career-best yardage numbers came during the 2014 season, when he handled 98 targets for 56/790/5 while with the Bengals (Marvin Jones was out for that campaign due to injury, elevating Sanu into the starting lineup). Sanu enters his second season with the Falcons, which should help him to be more comfortable in the Falcons' offense and also enjoy increasing rapport with quarterback Matt Ryan. We don't anticipate a huge bump in Sanu's statistics this season (Bob Henry has the highest 2017 projection for Sanu, at 62/710/5; Maurile Tremblay pegs him at 52/598/4). He is what he looks like - a complimentary receiver to the elite Jones. (May 21)
