    Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Totals 17 yards receiving in Wild Card loss

    Sanu secured three of five targets for 17 yards in Saturday's 18-16 Wild Card loss to the Steelers. The fourth-year pro had a quiet game as the Bengals' third wideout option, a fitting end to a season that saw his passing game role deemphasized with the return of teammate Marvin Jones to full health. Sanu tallied a solid 56 receptions on 98 targets in 2014 while Jones sat out the season with foot and ankle injuries, but those numbers fell to 33 and 50, respectively, in 2015. Sanu also failed to get into the end zone all season, and with his rookie contract now expired, may have played his last game in a Bengals uniform.

    Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Five touches Monday

    Sanu caught three passes (on three targets) for 29 yards, and rushed twice for 10 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's loss to the Broncos. Sanu's second touchdown of the season came on a six-yard run during the second quarter Monday. In fact, both of Sanu's scores have come on the ground this term. Since Sanu has only topped the 50-receiving-yard mark just twice, and not since early October, he holds little fantasy value heading into Week 17's matchup against the Ravens.

    Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Targeted five times against the Steelers

    Sanu caught two passes off of five targets for 24 yards in Sunday's loss to the Steelers. Sunday was just Sanu's second multi-catch game in five outings. Sanu has struggle mightily over the past two months to make his presence felt. The fourth-year receiver has recorded five touches just once this season and scored his lone touchdown of the season six weeks ago. With Cincinnati likely to lean on its stars to help young A.J. McCarron along down the stretch, it's unlikely that Sanu will all of a sudden come out with a big game.

    Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Held catchless against Cleveland

    Sanu was targeted once, but did not record a catch in Sunday's win over Cleveland. Well, Sanu was certainly trending toward a catchless game, having been limited to one catch in two of his prior three games. Sanu has yet to record a receiving touchdown after the season's three-quarter mark. The fact that Sanu was held catchless in a game that did not feature star tight end Tyler Eifert does not offer much hope for better days down the stretch.

    Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Targeted once against Cincinnati

    Sanu caught one pass on one target for eight yards in Sunday's win over the Rams. Sunday was the first time this season Sanu wasn't targeted at least twice. He has just four catches in his past three games and has slipped to fifth on the team in targets, catches and receiving yards during the process. He should not be included in any fantasy lineups.

    Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Totals 21 yards against Arizona

    Sanu caught two passes off of three targets for 19 yards and added a two-yard rush in Sunday's loss to Arizona. Sanu has been consistent in his use all season, seeing between two and six targets every game. He's also been consistently modest in his production, topping 50 total yards just twice and scoring one touchdown. As the Bengals' third receiver, he is typically thought of as behind just A.J. Green, Marvin Jones and Tyler Eifert in the pecking order. Giovani Bernard's eight-catch game on Sunday served as a reminder, however, that he's more like fifth on the totem pole and unlikely to see enough touches to warrant a fantasy roster spot.

    Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Held to one catch against Texans

    Sanu caught one pass off of two targets for five yards in Monday's loss to Houston. Monday was Sanu's seventh game of fewer than 35 receiving yards this season, including four in a row. The Bengals' No. 3 receiver is on pace for his lowest total of targets and catches since his rookie season in 2012 due in large part to the emergence of tight end Tyler Eifert. Eifert's prominent role in the Bengals' offense, combined with the continued presence of star receiver A.J. Green, has also made touchdowns hard to come by as the duo has combined for 13 of the Bengals' 18 touchdown catches. Of the remaining five, Marvin Jones has collected three. It should be telling to fantasy owners that Sanu's lone score of the season has come on the ground.

    Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Catches three passes against Browns

    Sanu caught three passes off of three targets for 25 yards in Thursday's win over Cleveland. He added a 25-yards touchdown run on the ground. The score was Sanu's first of the season and the four touches were his second most of 2015. The fourth-year receiver's speed makes him a threat to make big plays, with seven of his 24 touches going for 20 or more yards. Situated behind A.J. Green, Tyler Eifert and Marvin Jones on the Bengals' pecking order, however, Sanu is more likely to deliver a dud than an occasional solid performance from a fantasy perspective.

    Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Catches two passes against the Steelers

    Sanu caught two passes off of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's win over Pittsburgh. Sanu has been held to 34 receiving yards or fewer in five of seven games this season. Dating back to Week 10 of last season, Sanu has topped 50 yards receiving just twice in 15 games, including eight games of 20 yards or fewer. He has yet to score a touchdown this season and may be getting squeezed down the pecking order with the emergence of Tyler Eifert. Through seven games, Eifert, A.J. Green and Marvin Jones have accumulated over two thirds of the Bengals' targets, catches and receiving yards and all but two of the touchdown catches.

    Bengals' Mohamed Sanu: Quiet game against the Bills

    Sanu had two catches for 30 yards and a carry for another eight yards in the Week 6 win over the Bills. Sanu was only targeted four times in the win, a game where the Bengals didn't need to throw the ball frequently in the fourth quarter after staking out a 31-14 lead in the third quarter.
