Mohamed Sanu 'generating a strong buzz'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu seemed to fall out of favor last year as Marvin Jones emerged with 10 touchdown catches. But Sanu "is generating a strong buzz" in camp, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

"With Andrew Hawkins gone to Cleveland in free agency, I bet he gets a lot of looks," La Canfora wrote of Sanu. "[Quarterback Andy] Dalton seems to like throwing to him."

Sanu caught 47 passes for 455 yards and two touchdowns last season.


Bengals know Mohamed Sanu capable of more


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/24/2014) Bengals receivers coach James Urban hopes to handle receiver Mohamed Sanu better this season, reports ESPN.

"Mo's a good football player," Urban said. "I asked too much of him last year. I spread him thin. It's sort of the old thing where too much of a good thing is just as good as not enough. That's a shame on me."

Sanu finished 2013 with 47 catches for 455 yards and two touchdowns. He will open this season as the No. 3 receiver behind A.J. Green and Marvin Jones.


Teammates call Mohamed Sanu faster, more explosive


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu has received rave reviews this offseason from teammates. Marvin Jones called him "a lot faster and more explosive" and Andy Dalton claims Sanu is "running a lot better I think than he has the last two years." 

Sanu could be ticketed for a jack-of-all-trades role in the Bengals offense, the team website suggests. Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has done good things with versatile players before and could lean on Sanu to be more than a traditional receiver. 

"He's got me doing some stuff," a grinning Sanu said. "I love it. I'm embracing it and I'm going to do everything that I can to make sure that I'm the best at it. ... I'm uncommon because I can do a lot of different things and play a lot of different positions. I have a lot of different talents, but it's up to me to show it."


Marvin Jones ahead of Mohamed Sanu for No. 2 receiver job


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2014) After catching 10 touchdown passes last season, Bengals receiver Marvin Jones "appears to have taken over at No. 2 opposite [A.J.] Green," reports ESPN.com. But the website said Mohamed Sanu still has a chance to serve as the No. 2 receiver and the team hopes to play Sanu "a little more often this year."

Jones caught 51 passes for 712 yards and 10 scores, while Sanu had 47 grabs for 455 yards and two touchdowns last year.


Bengals get contributions from wide receivers


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/29/2013) Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones caught five passes for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Ravens. It was his 10th touchdown of the season, and he finishes 2013 with 51 receptions for 712 yards. These were all, by far, career highs for Jones. 

Fellow wide receiver Andrew Hawkins caught three passes for 74 yards. And Mohamed Sanu caught one pass for 12 yards. 

The Bengals finished the regular season 11-5 overall. 


Mohamed Sanu gets back in the end zone


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Though he entered the game with only one touchdown grab all season, Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu looked likely a natural when he reeled in a 7-yards toss from quarterback Andy Dalton in the front corner of the end zone late in the third quarter Week 16 against the Vikings. In all, he had four catches on six targets for 35 yards.

It was the best performance in weeks for Sanu, who like the rest of the Bengals offense, took advantage of a Vikings defense that entered the game ranked 30th against the pass. The four catches and 35 yards were the most he had in a game since Week 9 at Miami, when he caught six passes for 62 yards.

He was only sixth on the team in receiving yards, though, ranking behind A.J. Green, Marvin Jones, Jermaine Gresham, Giovani Bernard and Andrew Hawkins, and will likely go back to playing a minimal role in the passing game Week 17 against the Ravens.


Bengals get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) Several Bengals had minor offensive contributions in the Week 15 loss at Pittsburgh. Running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis carried four times for 4 yards, receiver Mohamed Sanu caught three passes for 20 yards and receiver Andrew Hawkins was targeted once without a catch.

They'll play the Vikings in Week 16.


Mohamed Sanu has 26 yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/8/2013) Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu caught two passes for 26 yards in Sunday's 42-28 win over the Colts. Sanu was targeted four times, including an end zone target in the second quarter. 

The Bengals face the Steelers in Week 15. Sanu caught five passes for 40 yards when the teams played in Week 2. 


Bengals secondary receivers an erratic crapshoot


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/4/2013) A.J. Green should get most of the attention in Week 14 against the Colts, leaving a trio of Bengals secondary receivers to get open and possibly have some value. Unfortunately, it's tough to pinpoint which receiver will have the big day. 

Marvin Jones broke out in Week 8 with four touchdowns against the Jets (as well as one each in each of the previous two games). But in his last three, Jones has caught just four passes for 23 total yards and no touchdowns. 

Mohamed Sanu has caught just one touchdown reception this season (in Week 11), and has been similarly held in check, with six receptions in his last three for 46 total yards. 

Andrew Hawkins -- the early-2012 sensation -- may be the most interesting of the three. He caught three passes for 65 yards in Week 13 against the Chargers, to very little fanfare (he missed the first eight weeks with an ankle injury). 

The Colts have been up-and-down in defending wide receivers this season. They've allowed 14 touchdowns to the position, but have two games with multiple wide receiver touchdowns allowed in the last four, and two with none. However, the two with zero allowed were against the Titans, who have an iffy passing game. 

Green should do the most damage against the Colts this Sunday, but there's room here for a No. 2. The problem is, there's no clear answer. The speedy deep threat (Hawkins) has the momentum. The typical No. 2 (Jones) matches the profile. And the big bruiser No. 2 (Sanu) was a force at the end of 2012. 

Someone should have a decent game from this group, but it's pure guesswork as to who it will be. All three can be left on the bench in most Fantasy formats. 


Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu held in check vs. Chargers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Bengals wide receivers Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu failed to make any sort of impact during Sunday's win over the Chargers in Week 13.

Jones was targeted three times and finished with two catches for 12 yards. Sanu was held under 30 receiving yards for the four time over his last five games. He caught one of the two passes thrown his way for 9 yards in a 17-10 victory.

The Bengals will host the Colts in Week 14.

Could Mohamed Sanu, Marvin Jones help Fantasy owners out?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/28/2013) Everyone's starting A.J. Green in Fantasy play but not everyone is as confident in Bengals receivers Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones. Considering the matchup at San Diego, maybe the should be. 

The Chargers have allowed 12 touchdowns and 206.1 yards per game to receivers this season. Green will get his numbers but there should be plenty left over for the other Bengals guys.

The problem is that Sanu and Jones tend to eat away at each others' opportunities. Over their last three games Sanu has caught 11 of 23 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown and Jones, who once caught four touchdowns in a game and had a three-game streak of TDs, has caught just 6 of 16 targets for 77 yards and no touchdowns.

Neither guy seems like a good Fantasy choice but with targets and playing time favoring Sanu, he's probably the least risky. I wouldn't start either one unless I had to.  


Mohamed Sanu catches first touchdown


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu brought in just two receptions in Week 11 against the Browns, but one was his first touchdown of the season in a 41-20 win.

Sanu was held to 11 yards on his two catches, but one of them went for 6 yards and a score from Jason Campbell. Sanu was targeted five times in the game overall.

Sanu, who scored four touchdowns as a rookie, needed all 11 of the teams' games prior to the bye week in Week 12 to get his first. He will try to get going when the team returns from the bye in Week 13 against the Chargers. 


Mohamed Sanu has 26 receiving yards


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/10/2013) Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu caught three passes for 26 yards in the team's 20-17 overtime loss to the Ravens. Sanu was targeted eight times -- the second game in a row Sanu had eight or more targets. 

Sanu was targeted once in the end zone, and officials missed a pass interference call in the fourth quarter, when Sanu's arm was pinned against his back by Lardarius Webb on a pass play. So his day could have looked moderately better on what was an overall ugly offensive afternoon for both teams. 

Sanu and the Bengals face the Browns in Week 11. 


Mohamed Sanu coming off nine-target game


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/7/2013) Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is coming off a Week 9 game in which he saw a season-high nine targets, converting them into six catches for 62 yards. 

While Sanu has yet to catch a touchdown this season, he has a ton of talent and could break out in any game. With defenses wise to Marvin Jones (and already putting attention on A.J. Green), the situation is ripe for Sanu to find more passes coming his way. 

Still a low-level option in most formats, Sanu is best left to deeper leagues (16-18 teams) and -- unless you have a really strong feeling he's going to do something big against the Ravens in Week 10 -- can be left on most benches as a high-upside receiver option. 


Mohamed Sanu puts up solid line in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/1/2013) Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu had his best game of the season in Week 9 against the Dolphins, despite dealing with a shoulder injury in the run up to Thursday's game.

Sanu brought in a season-high six receptions for 62 yards, while being targeted nine times to finish second on the team. He had a long catch of 21 yards in a 22-20 overtime loss.

Sanu has 31 catches for 316 yards through nine games, but has yet to score after finding the end zone four times as a rookie. He will continue his search for the end zone in Week 10 against the Ravens. 


Mohamed Sanu plays through shoulder injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2013) Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) was able to take the field Thursday in Week 9 against the Dolphins, despite being listed on the injury report as questionable. 

Bengals release lengthy injury report


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) Five Bengals are listed as questionable for Thursday's game at Miami: linebacker Michael Boley (hamstring), running back Rex Burkhead (hamstring), defensive end Wallace Gilberry (groin), receiver Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) and left tackle Andrew Whitworth (knee). 

The Bengals ruled out four players: cornerback Leon Hall (Achilles), safety Taylor Mays (shoulder), defensive tackle Devon Still (elbow) and linebacker Rey Maualuga (concussion, knee).


Mohamed Sanu a maybe for TNF clash


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2013) Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu has been deemed questionable for Thursday night against Miami with a shoulder injury. Sanu incurred the injury Sunday against the Jets.

Though Sanu has been a starter all season, he has been unproductive despite the attention paid to A.J. Green. Sanu has just 25 catches for 254 yards and no touchdowns. He has just one reception in each of the last two games.


Mohamed Sanu absent from Tuesday's practice


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2013) Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu missed a second straight practice Tuesday because of a shoulder injury. Sanu's absence from practice is hurting his chances of playing Thursday at Miami (Week 9).

Mohamed Sanu misses practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2013) Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu missed Monday's practice with a shoulder injury, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer. The Bengals are preparing for Thursday's game at Miami.

Stud Bengals receivers leave little for others


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) A blowout of the Jets on Sunday allowed two little-used skill position players to dent the scoresheet for the Bengals. Quarterback Josh Johnson did not throw a pass, but he did rush for 17 yards on three carries. Running back Cedric Peerman added 11 yards on six attempts.

Wideouts Marvin Jones and A.J. Green didn't leave many catches or yards for others, but tight end Tyler Eifert did contribute two receptions for 23 yards and wideout Dane Sanzenbacher added two more for 18 yards. Fellow wide receiver Mohamed Sanu caught one pass for 24 yards before leaving with a right shoulder injury.


Two Bengals receivers contribute one catch each Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu and wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher each contributed one catch during a 27-24 win Week 7 at Detroit. Sanu had a 12-yard catch, while Sanzenbacher had a 7-yard catch.

Sanu was targeted on a 12-yard touchdown pass in the first half, but he was well covered and the pass fell incomplete. The Bengals are back in action Week 8 vs. N.Y. Jets.


Three Bengals' receivers total seven catches Week 6


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Bengals receivers Mohamed Sanu, Dane Sanzenbacher and Ben Tate all had minor contributions during a 27-24 overtime win Week 6 at Buffalo.

Sanu had five catches (six targets) for 44 yards, Sanzenbacher had one catch for 23 yards and Tate had one catch for 6 yards. None of these players recorded a touchdown.

The Bengals are back in action Week 7 at Detroit.


Mohamed Sanu nets 28 receiving yards


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2013) Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu finished the Week 5 home game against New England with a pair of receptions. Sanu caught two passes for 28 yards and was targeted just the two times in the game by quarterback Andy Dalton. His long catch went for 17 yards.

The 24-year-old Sanu had his smallest production of the entire season on Sunday. He has yet to score and will look to be more involved Week 6 at Buffalo.

Mohamed Sanu looking for first score


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2013) Cincinnati wide receiver Mohamed Sanu has been a consistent and reliable receiver for the Bengals and quarterback Andy Dalton. Unfortunately, that hasn't translated into much Fantasy production. Sanu has yet to score this season entering Week 5 Sunday at home against New England.

Sanu, who went for three catches for 19 yards last week at Cleveland, doesn't have a history against the Patriots, either. Plus, the Patriots have been solid against opposing WR. They have given up just two WR TDs all year. Both of those scores came Week 1 against Buffalo. The Patriots did just allow their first 100-yard receiver last week as Julio Jones of the Falcons managed the feat.

If any WR is producing for the Bengals Week 5, it will likely be A.J. Green. Outside of possibly getting into the end zone for the first time Sunday, Sanu doesn't carry much Fantasy value into the game.
