Week 5: vs Seattle Seahawks

All WR vs SEA

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Here is where the rubber hits the road for the uber-hot Andy Dalton - can he produce against the stellar Seattle pass D during Week Five? We're about to find out just how real the Cincinnati passing juggernaut is, my friends. To date, Dalton has piled up 78/116 for 1,187 yards passing, nine TDs and one interception thrown over four games, ranking second to Aaron Rodgers in fantasy points at his position over the first 1/4 of the season. A.J. Green (35 targets for 25/417/3 receiving), Marvin Jones (18 for 10/165/2) and Tyler Eifert (24 targets for 16/222/3 receiving) have been the recipients of most of the TDs and targets to date. This is a very strong passing attack entering the second 1/4 of the season. The Seahawks average 190.2 net passing yards allowed per game (fifth in the NFL) with a mere three passing scores allowed over four games, while generating zero interceptions and six sacks (last in the NFL and tied for 23rd, respectively). This group simply covers opposing receivers like glue and is routinely disrupting opponents as they try to catch the football - as we saw on Monday Night when Calvin Johnson was forced to fumble at the goal-line, short-circuiting a late-fourth-quarter comeback attempt. Matthew Stafford managed 24/35 for 203 net passing yards with zero TDs or interceptions when the game was said and done. This is a tough matchup for the Bengals.

Recent Game Summaries

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 News

Bengals | Mohamed Sanu involved in Week 3 (Mon Sep 28, 10:49 AM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu was on the field for 58 of 77 (75.3%) offensive snaps in Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Our View: He was out there a lot, but only able to snare two catches for 28 yards. With a healthy Tyler Eifert and Marvin Jones, we're unlikely to see much production from Sanu.
