Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Scores in season-finale win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sanu caught all four passes that came his way in Sunday's win over the Saints for 32 yards and a touchdown.

Matt Ryan found Sanu in the back of the end zone for a 10-yard strike on a scramble midway through the second quarter. It was Sanu's first score since Week 8. Sanu put together some solid outings to start the season, but he has been quiet in recent weeks, a period that coincides with the emergence of big-play threat Taylor Gabriel. Gabriel was out with a foot injury on Sunday but is expected back for the playoffs. Those planning on playing Sanu should prepare accordingly.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Tallies 56 yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu caught three of four targets for 56 yards in Saturday's win over Carolina.

Sanu has had his solid moments in 2016, but has topped 80 yards receiving just once all year and hasn't scored since Week 8. More disturbingly, Sanu has been targeted in the red zone just once since Atlanta's Week 11 bye, after averaging one such target per week in the team's first 10 games. He is not worth a start against a New Orleans team that held him to 31 yards in Week 3.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Catches three passes for 44 yards
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sanu (groin) caught all three of his targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 41-13 win over the 49ers.

Sanu returned from a one-game absence, but even without Julio Jones (toe) inactive, Sanu took a backseat to Aldrick Robinson and Taylor Gabriel, who combined to catch seven passes for 171 yards. He will face the Panthers' shaky secondary next week.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu (groin) will play Sunday against the 49ers, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

Sanu missed last weekend's game versus the Rams while nursing a groin injury, but he returned to practice this week and will take the field Sunday, barring a setback. That comes as good news for the Falcons, who will be without top wideout Julio Jones (toe) once again this weekend. Knowing that, Sanu should lead Atlanta's receiving corps, with Taylor Gabriel and Justin Hardy next in line behind him.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu (groin) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The appearance doubles as Sanu's first since injuring his groin in Week 13, which is more than Julio Jones can boast as he rehabs a sprained toe. Seemingly ahead of Jones on the recovery front, Sanu would join Taylor Gabriel atop the wide receiver depth chart if he's able to follow a positive progression this week. No matter, the situation will be one to watch intently as the weekend approaches.
