  Bengals | Week 9 Inactives    Sun Nov 2, 11:43 AM

The Cincinnati Bengals have declared WR Dane Sanzenbacher, CB Darqueze Dennard, RB Giovani Bernard, OG Kevin Zeitler, LB Rey Maualuga, LB Vontaze Burfict, DL Will Clarke inactive for Week 9.

Footballguys view: Jeremy Hill gets the start for Bernard and he's a must play against the Jags. Vinny Rey will start at MLB for Burfict, but Emmanuel Lamur will see more snaps and added value as a result of his absence too. Rex Burkhead and Cedric Peerman will also see the field to spell Hill.

  Bengals | Cincy won't change offensive game plan    Thu Oct 9, 01:20 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) may not play in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, but offensive coordinator Hue Jackson refuses to change the game plan drastically if their receiving star doesn't play. 'That's why I never put together a game plan based on one guy,' said Jackson. 'We're not going to crash our game plan. As a coordinator you just have to adapt. You never know what might happen.' WR Mohamed Sanu is tied for the team lead with Green with 17 catches, and WR Dane Sanzenbacher can also be used.

Footballguys view: Jackson might refuse but it's up to quarterback Andy Dalton to execute. As it stands, Mohamed Sanu has one less target than Green, though he played one more game and had two more targets last week in the loss to the New England Patriots. We see Sanu as a solid WR2 right now, with some upside if Andy Dalton can take advantage of what looks to be a good matchup.

  Bengals | Dane Sanzenbacher feeling more comfortable    Tue Jul 1, 03:05 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Dane Sanzenbacher recently said he has a higher comfort level now that he's been with the team for more than a season. 'The longer you're there, the more of a comfort level you have,' Sanzenbacher said. 'It's easier to perform well when you're in a place that you like.' Sanzenbacher also said he's been training in Arizona in preparation for training camp in late July.

Footballguys view: Sanzenbacher will be asked to take the place of Andrew Hawkins this year. Coming out of college Sanzenbacher was a precise route-runner with good hands. Now that he's more comfortable in the pros, he'll be able to make the most of his natural skill set. With a run-heavy system under new OC Hue Jackson, we're not expecting Sanzenbacher to be much of a fantasy factor.

  Bengals | Dane Sanzenbacher likely to be used in slot    Mon May 19, 04:11 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Dane Sanzenbacher likely will be the team's slot receiver this upcoming season since they lost WR Andrew Hawkins to the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Sanzenbacher is not as quick as Hawkins, and he may not be as productive. We like Sanzenbacher's route-running and concentration when running routes over the middle. However, don't expect much from him for fantasy purposes.

  Bengals | Mohamed Sanu misses practice    Tue Oct 29, 04:15 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) missed his second straight day of practice Tuesday, Oct. 29. If he can't play in the team's Week 9 game Thursday, Oct. 31, against the Miami Dolphins, then WR Marvin Jones will replace him in two-receiver sets with WR Dane Sanzenbacher taking some snaps out of the slot position.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are also set to get Andrew Hawkins back soon. He'll work as a slot receiver for the team when he's healthy.

The Cincinnati Bengals have declared OT Andrew Whitworth, CB Brandon Ghee, WR Dane Sanzenbacher, DL Margus Hunt, C Mike Pollak, RB Rex Burkhead, WR Ryan Whalen inactive for Week 1.

Footballguys view: Anthony Collins is better than a lot of teams starting left tackle, so the loss of Whitworth today is not as big as it might seem.
