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.
Bengals All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Green practiced Friday and appears on track to get back on the field for Cincinnati's game against the Jaguars at Paul Brown Stadium this Sunday. Green has missed the last three games with a toe injury that has bothered him for the bulk of the season. He was available for each practice this week.
Before the injury, Green posted 17 catches for 314 yards and two touchdowns.Fantasy Analysis:
During Green's three-game absence, WR Mohamed Sanu filled in nicely, recording at least 120 yards receiving twice. He has proven to be a reliable target for QB Andy Dalton -- but he isn't A.J. Green.
With Green and Sanu both in the lineup, Dalton becomes a decent start this week against Jacksonville. With lead RB Giovani Bernard out this week, both receivers figure to be extremely busy. Feel confident starting Green as a high-end WR1 and Sanu as a low-end WR2.
