Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Nabs three passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu snagged three of five passes for 29 yards in Sunday's 27-7 win over Dallas.

The game broke a two-week scoring streak for Sanu, who opened the season with just one touchdown in five games. Sanu is a consistent performer, with at least three catches in all but one outing this season, but doesn't put up typical No. 2 receiver numbers given the diversity of Atlanta's offense. He's topped 50 yards just thrice this season and has yet to exceed 85 yards this season.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Reaches end zone in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu brought in all three of his targets for 23 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Panthers.

His reception and yardage totals may have been underwhelming, but Sanu salvaged the day from a fantasy perspective when he brought in a six-yard scoring strike from Matt Ryan in the first quarter. The veteran wideout has gotten into the end zone in consecutive weeks and has notched at least four receptions in six of eight contests. Sanu will look to make his mark in a Week 10 battle versus the Cowboys.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Team-leading reception total in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu hauled in six of seven targets for 74 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-20 win over the Jets.

Sanu paced the Falcons in receptions and drew even with Julio Jones for the lead in receiving yardage. The veteran went up high to snare a scoring toss from Matt Ryan early in the fourth quarter, making an impressive grab on a wet football for his second touchdown of the season. Sanu has seen 17 targets over the last two games and no less than six in all but one game this season. While his yardage upside is relatively capped, Sanu continues to be an above-average PPR option and remains on pace to exceed the career-high 59 catches he notched last season. He'll look to continue producing against the Panthers in Week 9.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Six catches in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sanu caught six balls for 65 yards against the Patriots, but the Falcons lost, 23-7.

Sanu was targeted 10 times on the day, which trailed only Julio Jones, who was targeted 13 times. It appears that Sanu's hamstring injury is officially behind him, and he could benefit if teams decide to double team Jones. Sanu's return also means fewer targets for players like Taylor Gabriel and Justin Hardy.

Falcons' Mohamed Sanu: Cleared to face Pats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Though he remained limited at Friday's practice, Sanu (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in New England, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

A week 5 bye allowed Sanu to miss only one game while recovering from an injury that came with a timetable of two-to-three weeks. Sunday will mark exactly three weeks since he injured his hamstring, and he'll draw a favorable matchup against a banged-up New England secondary that was struggling even when it was healthy.
