  • Sanu caught two of six targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 37-35 loss to the Vikings. Sanu finished second on the team in looks, but the 31-year-old failed to do much damage to a weak Vikings secondary that teammate Marvin Jones flamed for 180 yards and two touchdowns on 11 targets. Sanu will thus finish the year with 17 receptions for 187 yards and one touchdown on 24 targets over 10 games with Detroit and San Francisco. While the veteran did well to carve out a role with the Lions after the 49ers let him loose after three games, Sanu and his lack of explosion may not have much of a market in free agency this offseason.

  • Sanu caught two of four targets for 22 yards during Saturday's 47-7 loss to the Buccaneers. Like the rest of Detroit's receiving corps, Sanu's prospects were doomed from the start once Matthew Stafford (ankle) left early due to injury. While the veteran still has seen nine total targets over the past two games, the explosiveness Sanu lacks in his profile makes him a hard sell in fantasy with Stafford, and it will only get worse if Chase Daniel is throwing passes Week 17 against the Vikings.

  • Sanu caught four of five targets for 38 yards during Sunday's 46-25 loss to Tennessee. Sanu has been a good fit with Matthew Stafford, and he made a number of nice catches during Detroit's attempt to keep up with Tennessee. However, the fact that he's averaging just over three targets over the past four games makes him extremely difficult to recommend as a fantasy option, especially if Detroit chooses to rest quarterback Matthew Stafford for the final two games of the regular season.

  • Sanu caught both his targets for 37 yards during Sunday's 31-24 loss to Green Bay. Sanu again saw the second-most playing time among Detroit receivers despite Danny Amendola being one week further removed from his hip injury. While the possible return of Kenny Golladay (hip) would obviously send Sanu to a lesser role, Golladay did not participate at all in the Lions' last practice before Sunday's game, suggesting there's a decent chance he remains sidelined in Week 15 against Tennessee. Regardless, Sanu won't be much of a fantasy option, especially if Matthew Stafford (ribs) is forced to miss time.

  • Sanu secured both of his targets for 36 yards during Sunday's 34-30 victory over Chicago. Seeing 59 percent of the offensive snaps, Sanu ranked second among Lions receivers in playing time, notably seeing more action than Danny Amendola (49 percent) and Quintez Cephus (46). While his role will certainly be scaled back once Kenny Golladay (hip) is cleared to return, it seems obvious that interim head coach Darrell Bevell appreciates having Sanu as part of his rotation of receivers. Next up for the 31-year-old is a Week 14 matchup at home against the Packers.
