Fellow wide receiver
The Bengals finished the regular season 11-5 overall.
Though he entered the game with only one touchdown grab all season,
It was the best performance in weeks for Sanu, who like the rest of the Bengals offense, took advantage of a Vikings defense that entered the game ranked 30th against the pass. The four catches and 35 yards were the most he had in a game since Week 9 at Miami, when he caught six passes for 62 yards.
He was only sixth on the team in receiving yards, though, ranking behind A.J. Green, Marvin Jones, Jermaine Gresham, Giovani Bernard and Andrew Hawkins, and will likely go back to playing a minimal role in the passing game Week 17 against the Ravens.
They'll play the Vikings in Week 16.
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.
