Mohamed 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 Cincinnati 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.
Monday was Sanu's seventh game of fewer than 35 receiving yards this season, including four in a row. The
Mohamed 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 Cincinnati Bengals ' pecking order, however, Sanu is more likely to deliver a dud than an occasional solid performance from a fantasy perspective.
Mohamed 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 Cincinnati Bengals ' targets, catches and receiving yards and all but two of the touchdown catches.
Mohamed 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 Cincinnati Bengals didn't need to throw the ball frequently in the fourth quarter after staking out a 31-14 lead in the third quarter.
