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)

Falcons | Mohamed Sanu bonding with QB (Thu Jul 14, 12:14 AM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu has bonded with QB Matt Ryan, working together at Ryan's passing camp in Orlando, and throughout June minicamp. The duo built chemistry as the practices wore on. 'He's got great hands,' Ryan said. 'One of the things I noticed right from the start is how strong his hands are. He's a really good worker. I think he can really help us.'

Our View: The Falcons continue their quest for somebody - anybody - who can make some noise across from Julio Jones. Sanu was inconsistent in Cincinnati so we're going to need to see something more from him before we get excited. Right now we see him as just a WR5 for fantasy purposes.
