Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Three catches in Week 15 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu corralled three of six targets for 30 receiving yards, adding one rush for 11 yards during Sunday's 40-14 win against the Cardinals.

The veteran wideout recorded at least three receptions for the seventh straight game, but he's averaged fewer than 50 receiving yards per contest with zero touchdowns during that span (eight-game scoreless streak overall). Sanu has garnered a sturdy enough share of the Falcons wide receiver targets to merit flex consideration in deeper leagues, but he hasn't finished top 25 at the position in PPR or standard scoring since Week 5. Upcoming in Week 16 is a chance for Sanu to buck that trend, opposing a Panthers defense that ranks bottom 10 with 7.9 yards allowed per attempt this season, and bottom five with 28 passing touchdowns against.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Second-leading receiver in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu corralled six of eight targets, compiling 54 receiving yards during Sunday's 34-20 loss to Green Bay.

Sanu provided a signature performance Sunday in the Falcons trip to Lambeau Field, finishing right at his season average in receiving yardage (49 YPG), while logging between three and six receptions for the sixth straight game. He's merited consistent flex consideration in PPR formats, but a lack of downfield explosiveness and a seven-game scoring drought severely caps his relevance in standard scoring. Week 15 brings a matchup against a Cardinals defense that's been more than serviceable in containing opposing wideouts this year, allowing 12 touchdown catches and 1,889 receiving yards to the position (among NFL's 10 best teams in both categories).

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Three catches in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu hauled in three of four targets, accounting for 37 receiving yards during Sunday's 26-16 loss to the Ravens.

Sanu has been a prototypical high-floor, low-ceiling option in fantasy this year, just as he has been for the majority of his career -- four times exceeding 75 catches, but never accounting for more than 790 receiving yards across six prior seasons as a pro. In 2018 he's recorded four or more catches in eight of 12 appearances, but he's only gone over 75 receiving yards once. Sanu's early-season scoring spree is now a distant memory, further inhibiting the veteran wideout's upside. Sanu has gone six straight games without logging a score, after accounting for three touchdowns through the Falcons' first six outings. Week 14 presents ample opportunity to get back into the end zone, facing a Packers defense that's allowed 17 wide receiver touchdowns this year, tied for third most.

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

Sanu caught all four of his targets, accounting for 74 receiving yards during Thursday's 31-17 loss to the Saints.

Sanu keeps churning out respectable PPR production, with at least four receptions and 45 receiving yards in four straight outings (had achieved that same feat just twice over the first seven weeks of the season). The seven-year veteran has been a high-floor flex play, but offers limited upside of late, having gone five straight games without getting into the end zone after scoring three times through Week 6. An upcoming matchup against Baltimore is nothing to get optimistic about, with the Ravens allowing the second-fewest yards (1,339) and the eight-fewest touchdowns (nine) to wide receivers in 2018.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Solid in losing effort to Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu caught four of six targets, compiling 56 receiving yards during Sunday's 22-19 loss to the Cowboys.

The veteran wideout now has four or more catches in three straight outings, but he's been held scoreless and has fewer than 50 receiving yards per game over that span. Since Week 6, Sanu ranks behind Calvin Ridley in receptions (18 to 20), targets (23 to 27) and yards (215 to 230). while Julio Jones has dominated the target share and overall production (39 receptions on 56 targets for 594 yards). Sanu has an opportunity to boom Thursday when the Falcons travel to take on New Orleans and a Saints defense that entered the weekend tied for the seventh-most wide receiver catches allowed this year with 138.
