Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu (hip) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

After being limited at practice Wednesday and Thursday, Sanu progressed to full participation Friday, thus paving the way for him to remain in the Falcons' starting lineup this weekend. The presence of fellow receivers Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley limits Sanu's fantasy ceiling to a degree, but he's been serviceable of late in PPR formats in his slot role, having logged a total of 10 catches on 13 targets for 92 yards over his last two outings.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Limited again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu (hip) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Sanu has maintained the same activity level in practice this week, but the hip issue in question hasn't impacted his ability to play on gameday this season. Aside from a two-game stretch Weeks 4 and 5 in which he hauled in 10 of 16 passes for 184 yards and one touchdown, he accounted for 24 catches for 232 yards and two TDs in the Falcons' seven other contests.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Shows up on injury report again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu (hip) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Jason Butt of The Athletic reports.

Sanu has become a consistent presence on the injury report thanks to the hip injury, but he's played at least 33 snaps in every game this season, including a season-high 70 during Sunday's 28-16 loss to the Browns. His expanded workload (eight targets) was largely a product of the Falcons playing from behind, though Calvin Ridley (five targets on 53 snaps) didn't benefit in the same way. A Week 11 matchup with the Cowboys appears suboptimal, as only the Lions have given up fewer receptions (96) to wide receivers this season.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Third-leading receiver in Week 10 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu corralled six of eight targets, compiling 47 yards during Sunday's 28-16 loss to Cleveland.

On the Falcons' opening drive of the second half, Sanu carelessly extended the ball in an attempt to collect extra yardage, but the ball came loose and cornerback T.J. Carrie recovered a fumble that led to a Browns touchdown six plays later. The veteran wideout had momentarily shed his possession receiver persona by averaging 16.4 yards per catch between Week 4 and Week 9, but he put forth a more representative performance against Clevelend with an efficient catch rate of 75 percent but unexplosive production in terms of yardage (7.8 YPC). Atlanta's next opponent presents a challenging matchup for Sanu, as the Cowboys rank among the NFL's five best teams in catches (96), yards (1,296) and touchdowns (6) surrendered to wide receivers this season.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Cleared for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu (hip) was a full practice participant Friday and doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game at Cleveland.

Sanu will continue to play through a nagging hip injury after catching four of five targets for 45 yards in last week's 38-14 win over Washington. The red-hot Atlanta offense draws another tricky road matchup, but the bigger concern for Sanu is a lack of opportunities in an offense that also features Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Austin Hooper, Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith.
