2014 Outlook:Last updated on Aug-14-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith
Rutgers alumnus Mohamad Sanu emerged as a decent third option in Cincinnati, although he must continue to improve in order to win the hearts and minds of fantasy owners. He holds his most value in PPR leagues because of his possession receiver talents. He is not a big play guy, but can make the tough catches to move the chains. If Marvin Jones were to get hurt, Sanu would almost certainly be the man to step into his role. Sanu is only draft worthy in very deep leagues and that's because of his potential, not because of anything he has yet accomplished. His lack of TDs and yards per catch really hurt his fantasy value in standard formats.
Update (08/14): With Bengals' Marvin Jones out a significant amount of time with a broken foot, Sanu's fantasy value increases immensely. He will be filling in as the WR2 opposite A.J. Green and is destined to see a major increase in targets. He is definitely a solid sleeper now and his ADP should climb quickly. He is worth a late-round pick. Just remember his value could plummet mid-season once Jones is healthy again.
Whether Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green plays this weekend is still unknown -- he specifically said Tuesday that he "hopes" to play, but "it's still up in the air." If he is given the green light after missing the past two games due to a stubborn toe injury, fantasy owners should know that they won't be getting a fully healthy Green for this week and perhaps for the rest of the season.
"It's probably not gonna be 100 percent, but I hope it's just manageable," Green said on NFL Network's "NFL AM." "I can get through the season and be fine and still play at a high level."
The Bengals host the Ravens this weekend.
There have been mixed signals on Green's Week 8 status since Sunday. On that day, there was a report that Green told a teammate he would play in the next game. On Monday, head coach Marvin Lewis said Green has made "tremendous progress." But Green apparently doesn't want us to get ahead of ourselves. We'll see if he can make it through a couple of practices. Green's return would be good news for not only fantasy owners but also for everyone on the Bengals' offense. Coming out of their pathetic 27-0 defeat to the Colts, it's obvious the Bengals are desperate for Green's playmaking ability.
