The Bengals face the Steelers in Week 15. Sanu caught five passes for 40 yards when the teams played in Week 2.
A.J. Green should get most of the attention in Week 14 against the Colts, leaving a trio of
The Colts have been up-and-down in defending wide receivers this season. They've allowed 14 touchdowns to the position, but have two games with multiple wide receiver touchdowns allowed in the last four, and two with none. However, the two with zero allowed were against the Titans, who have an iffy passing game.
Green should do the most damage against the Colts this Sunday, but there's room here for a No. 2. The problem is, there's no clear answer. The speedy deep threat (Hawkins) has the momentum. The typical No. 2 (Jones) matches the profile. And the big bruiser No. 2 (Sanu) was a force at the end of 2012.
Someone should have a decent game from this group, but it's pure guesswork as to who it will be. All three can be left on the bench in most Fantasy formats.
Jones was targeted three times and finished with two catches for 12 yards. Sanu was held under 30 receiving yards for the four time over his last five games. He caught one of the two passes thrown his way for 9 yards in a 17-10 victory.
The Bengals will host the Colts in Week 14.
Everyone's starting A.J. Green in Fantasy play but not everyone is as confident in
The Chargers have allowed 12 touchdowns and 206.1 yards per game to receivers this season. Green will get his numbers but there should be plenty left over for the other Bengals guys.
The problem is that Sanu and Jones tend to eat away at each others' opportunities. Over their last three games Sanu has caught 11 of 23 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown and Jones, who once caught four touchdowns in a game and had a three-game streak of TDs, has caught just 6 of 16 targets for 77 yards and no touchdowns.
Neither guy seems like a good Fantasy choice but with targets and playing time favoring Sanu, he's probably the least risky. I wouldn't start either one unless I had to.
