Summary

Atlanta's new #2 wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is just that - a complimentary player who should threaten opposing defenses enough to keep them from triple-teaming Julio Jones, but who is no threat to siphon off touches from Jones. Sanu's career-best 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). During 2015 Sanu's numbers dipped back down to 49 targets for 33/394/0 receiving in the third wide receiver role, though he did rush in two scores (10/71/2 rushing last season). Each year, Sanu received a handful of carries for the Bengals, but he only scored rushing TDs during the 2015 season. He's got some 'boom' potential as the #2 wide receiver in Atlanta, but consistent production may be elusive for fantasy owners of Sanu this year. (May 19)
