Bengals struggles cost Mohamed Sanu
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Mohamed Sanu failed to make much of an impact in Week 7 against the Colts, but that might have been more the result of the Bengals' general offensive malaise than any failing on his part.

It is awfully hard to take anything from Sunday's game, as the Bengals were just out of sync all game long on offense. Sanu still racked up 54 yards on three receptions, and had nine passes thrown his way. Entering play Sunday, he had caught 67.5 percent of the passes thrown his way, so this is probably just a one-time issue.

Sanu is clearly the team's top option in the passing game with A.J. Green sidelined, but he cannot do it all by himself. Expect better from him in Week 8 against the Ravens.

Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu snags three in shutout loss
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu led the Bengals in receiving yards Sunday against the host Colts. That's not saying much.

Sanu accounted for nearly half of the team's output through the air with 54 yards on three receptions. But he was targeted nine times. His afternoon was not made any more pleasant when he tried to pass the ball - the result was a sack.

Perhaps next Sunday against Baltimore will prove to be a nicer experience for Sanu.

Mohamed Sanu heads into difficult matchup
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu has played well in a larger role over the last two weeks and will try to stay on that roll when Cincy takes on the Colts in Week 7.

Sanu has been forced into a much larger role with A.J. Green's injury, and has responded with 15 receptions for 190 yards and two touchdowns over the last two games. With Green likely to sit out with a toe injury again Sunday, Sanu should get the chance to shine again in Week 7.

The Colts have done a solid job against opposing wide receivers this season, holding them to 14.3 Fantasy points per game. Individual receivers have notched just three double-digit Fantasy scoring games so far, although Andre Johnson did record 99 yards and a touchdown last week against the Colts.

The Bengals are down two of their top three receivers, so Sanu should continue to see plenty of work. Even against a tough matchup, his expected workload makes Sanu a solid starting option for Week 7.

Mohamed Sanu proves his worth
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

It took a while -- prior to the Bengals' first drive of the fourth quarter, which ended with him scoring a touchdown, he had only three catches for 19 yards -- but Mohamed Sanu ultimately performed like a No. 1 wide receiver in the absence of A.J. Green Week 6 against Carolina, catching 10 passes for 120 yards. His 14 targets were twice as many as any other Bengal, and he was the go-to guy down the stretch, catching seven passes in the fourth quarter and overtime.

He was expected to excel after holding his own alongside Green in the Bengals' previous two games. He had five catches on nine targets for 70 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 and five catches on eight targets for 44 yards in Week 3. He had three catches on four targets for 84 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 -- another game Green missed (or mostly missed) due to injury.

With this performance, Sanu established himself as a must-start for however much time Green misses with his toe injury. There was some speculation late Sunday that Green would miss Week 7 at Indianapolis as well, so you should plan on starting Sanu again.

Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu has career outing with star WR out
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu was the player who stepped up Sunday against the Panthers in the absence of A.J. Green, who was sidelined due to a toe injury. Sanu had a team-high 120 receiving yards and one touchdown on 11 catches during a 37-all tie Week 6.

Sanu did most of his damage after halftime, as he totaled just two catches for 13 yards in the first half. Sanu recorded his third touchdown of the season on a 34-yard reception in the fourth quarter, which tied the game at 24. 

Sanu could have had an even bigger performance Sunday, but he had a 34-yard reception in the second quarter called back due to an illegal shift penalty. He was targeted 15 times.

Sunday was the first time Sanu managed double-digit receptions in a game. It was also the first time he surpassed 100 yards in his career. The Bengals are back in action Week 7 at Indianapolis.
