Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu nets career-high fifth receiving TD
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu scored for the first time in three games Sunday against the Texans. He set a career high during the 22-13 win with his fifth receiving touchdown.

Sanu gave Cincinnati a 7-0 lead with a 6-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter. Sanu, who was targeted seven times, finished with five catches for 48 yards.

Sanu has 10 career receiving touchdowns in 36 games. The Bengals are back in action Week 13 at Tampa Bay.

Mohamed Sanu taking a backseat in the offense
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Bengals threw the ball just 22 times in Week 11, and that didn't leave many opportunities for wide receiver Mohamed Sanu to turn things around.

Sanu was targeted six times in a 27-10 win over the Saints, and was able to haul in just three of those passes for 23 yards. He has now caught just five of 13 passes thrown his way over the past two games, for 43 yards total.

Sanu was a star in A.J. Green's absence, but has predictably taken a back seat since Green's return to health. Green has been targeted 18 times over the last two games, which doesn't leave much room for Sanu to succeed. He'll be better than he has been, but the Bengals might not throw the ball often or well enough for both receivers to succeed.

Sanu's chances to be a consistent starting Fantasy option down the stretch seem grim at this point.

Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu has quiet game vs. New Orleans
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu had a quiet afternoon Sunday against the Saints.

Sanu was held to only two catches for 14 yards in the opening half. He hauled in a 9-yard reception in the third quarter and was held without a grab in the final period. He was targeted nine times and finished with three catches for 23 yards in a 27-10 victory. He has 671 receiving yards on the year.

Sanu will look to bounce back Week 12 at Houston.

A.J. Green, Bengals passing attack struggle Thursday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Bengals passing game could get virtually nothing going in Thursday's 24-3 loss to the Browns in Week 10, with the entire receiving corps combining for just 93 yards on 13 receptions.

Tight end Jermaine Gresham "led" the way Thursday, catching three of his six targets for 29 yards, while No. 1 receiver A.J. Green was held to three catches on 10 targets for just 23 yards. Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu managed only two receptions for 20 yards, and former Brown Greg Little could muster just one catch for eight yards against his former team while also drawing a personal foul for headbutting a player. Three other players combined for the other four receptions and 13 yards as quarterback Andy Dalton posted a 2.0 passer rating while completing just 30.3 percent of his passes.

Green, Sanu and Gresham will have to hope that Dalton puts the awful performance out of his mind by the time the Bengals head to New Orleans to face the Saints in Week 11.

A.J. Green's return doesn't end Mohamed Sanu's run
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

With A.J. Green back in the fold after a three-game absence, Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu took on a smaller role in Week 9 against the Jaguars, but he was still a big factor in a 33-23 win.

Sanu hauled in just four passes in the game, but that doesn't tell the whole story, as he was still targeted eight times. He went off for another strong performance, totaling 95 receiving yards and a touchdown, his fourth of the season and first since Week 6.

Sanu put up 299 yards on 18 catches in three games without Green around, but it was good to see him still factoring into the offense upon Green's return. If Week 9 is any indication, Sanu isn't going anywhere, and should remain a viable Fantasy option moving forward.
