  • Sanu is no longer sporting a cast or boot on his surgically repaired ankle, Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports. Making his way back from early March surgery, Sanu is now ready to begin the rehab process. He hurt his ankle in November during his third game with the Patriots, missing one contest and seeing limited playing time in three others. Sanu returned to a three-down role in mid-December, but he provided only eight catches for 72 yards on 18 targets over the final three weeks of the regular season. The Patriots gave up a second-round pick to acquire Sanu in an October trade with the Falcons, but that doesn't necessarily make him a lock for the 2020 roster, considering his $6.5 million base salary doesn't contain any guarantees (per OvertheCap.com). The team may want to discuss an extension or pay cut to reduce the cap hit for Sanu heading into his age-31 campaign.

  • Sanu is in line to undergo surgery to address issues related to a high ankle sprain that bothered him throughout the 2019 season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Sanu's ankle woes no doubt contributed to his relatively modest production over 15 regular-season games (seven with the Falcons and eight with the Patriots) last year, with the veteran wideout finishing up with 59 catches on 89 targets for 520 yards and two TDs overall. A timetable for his return to full health hasn't been established, but given the timing of his anticipated procedure, he'll presumably be 100 percent well before the start of the 2020 campaign. Assuming his health, a key variable with regard to Sanu's fantasy prospects going forward is the status of QB Tom Brady, who is headed for free agency next month.

  • Sanu caught three of his five targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Dolphins. In 15 games this season (seven with the Falcons and eight with the Patriots), Sanu combined for 59 catches on 89 targets for 520 yards and two TDs. Since coming over from Atlanta in October in exchange for a second-round draft pick, Sanu's impact has been modest aside from the 10-81-1 stat line he logged in Week 9's loss to the Ravens. The 30-year-old -- who is under contract with New England through 2020 -- will look to pick up the pace in the postseason, while continuing to log starters' snaps in the team's offense.

  • Sanu caught three of five targets for 24 receiving yards and registered 17 yards on three punt returns during Saturday's 24-17 win against Buffalo. The veteran Sanu provided momentary concern by fielding a highly contested, bouncing kick off the foot of Bills punter Corey Bojorquez, but he secured the ball and endured a hard hit to retain possession for New England. His other two return attempts yielded a respectable 17 yards, but his offensive role has been less than desirable for fantasy purposes. Since racking up 10 catches for 81 yards and a touchdown in his second appearance as a Patriot Nov. 3 against Baltimore, Sanu has averaged a measly 2.2 receptions and 13.4 receiving yards per game over his past five outings. Sanu appears to be an unreliable option heading into Week 17, though a matchup against Miami's No. 24 pass defense offers better-than-average potential for a bounce-back performance.

  • Sanu (ankle) was on the field for 56 of a possible 65 snaps on offense in Sunday's 34-13 win over the Bengals, en route to catching two of his eight targets for 13 yards. On the plus side, Sanu's snap count increased for the second straight game, as he moves past the ankle issue that sidelined him Week 12. In fact, he led the team's wide receivers in that department, with Julian Edelman (40 snaps) limited by a knee issue. On the other hand, his production in a New England uniform has been modest, aside from a 10-81-1 stat line in Week 9's loss to the Ravens. He should produce more in the coming weeks, given his prominent role in the offense, but for now Sanu's chemistry with QB Tom Brady remains a work in progress.
