From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 24): Sanu is showing a lot more than a good arm and good run after catch ability that have been signatures early in his NFL career. Sprawling catches and toughness near the goal line made for a solid day at Houston, and against Tampa this week (and Pittsburgh and Cleveland in the fantasy playoffs), Sanu could be in for an even better day.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs CLE (7 / 2 / 20 / 0 rec)

Mohamed Sanu has been outstanding filling in as the Bengal's #1 WR with star AJ Green sidelined the past few weeks with a foot injury, but was unable to get anything going against a game Cleveland secondary. He was able to haul in only one of his seven targets, but nearly had a beautiful one-handed catch running down the seam in the first quarter while getting mauled by the slot corner. The play resulted in a PI penalty and the Bengal's only trip to the red zone. There was nothing in the game to indicate that Sanu has lost any of his mojo other than Andy Dalton's inability to get the ball anywhere near him.

2014 Week 11 vs NO (6 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)

Facing a tough CB matchup, Sanu played the part of the decoy in this game. The Bengals really didn't throw a whole lot, and spent much of the game running the ball. Sanu caught 3 passes, but wasn't a big part of the gameplan. One of his catches came in the redzone, but he was tackled at the 3 yard line. Sanu also dropped a slant pass on 3rd down on the first drive in the 2nd half. It was the only time the Bengals had to punt until late in the game, but it turned out to be a relatively unimportant drop. The return of AJ Green is great for the Bengals, but in this run-first offense, Sanu owners can expect his production to begin dropping, as there will be games such as this one where AJ is the primary target for much of the game.

2014 Week 12 vs HOU (7 / 5 / 48 / 1 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)

Much like Jeremy Hill's opportunities with Gio returning, Mohamed Sanu's number isn't getting called as much with AJ Green's return. But Sanu still made some huge plays against Houston. He caught the only TD, catching a screen pass and plowing through a defender for a 6 yard TD. ON a later possession he had a diving 12 yard catch for another first down, then had a similar leaping catch in the 2nd half. Sanu seems to have reverted back to the role he had previously, albeit at a higher level. He's clearly the number 2 WR in Cincy, but his physical presence brings another element to the offense. He can be lined up anywhere, and is practically unguardable by one man. As defenses adjust to AJ Green's return, expect Mohamed Sanu to have some big games in future weeks.
