|Chosen in the 3rd round of the 2012 draft, Sanu has an opportunity to compete for a starting spot as a rookie on a Bengals team desperate to find a solid starting option opposite A.J. Green. Coming out of Rutgers, Sanu has solid size at 6’2”, 210 pounds and is considered strictly a possession receiver given his inability to consistently get separation from defenders and the low average yards per catch he had in college. He has solid hands and will challenge for a spot outside although there is a chance he could also be used in the slot. With A.J. Green and Jermaine Gresham expected to eat up plenty of targets, Sanu rates as little more than a late round flier in redraft leagues provided he puts together a solid preseason.
| Julio Jones ruled out -- Fri Dec 16 1:00 pm --|

FF Today's Take: While Jones is out, WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) is expected to play leaving Matt Ryan with Sanu, Taylor Gabriel and Aldrick Robinson as his main weapons on the outside. Sanu and Gabriel are worth WR3 or Flex consideration.
| Falcons anticipating Julio Jones will play -- Fri Dec 9 1:45 pm --|
Listed as Questionable, gametime decision
|Falcons coach Dan Quinn said WR Julio Jones (turf toe) is questionable and will be a game-time decision vs. Rams Sunday, but Quinn is anticipating Jones will play. WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) has been ruled out. LT Jake Matthews (knee) is questionable but looks good, Quinn said. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Mohamed Sanu has already been ruled out so the Falcons could certainly use Julio's services against the Bucs. The issue for fantasy owners is the Falcons don't play until late afternoon on Sunday. It's sounding like Julio will be active but hopefully we'll get a better idea of his status Sunday morning.
| Julio, Sanu miss practice Wednesday -- Wed Dec 7 1:30 pm --|
Jones has MRI on toe
|Falcons coach Dan Quinn says WR Julio Jones, LT Jake Matthew, WR Mohamed Sanu, DE Dwight Freeney will not practice today. Jones had a MRI on his turf toe. Has a chance to play vs. Rams (Atlanta Journal Constitution)|
FF Today's Take: With the Falcons playing the lowly Rams, it's possible the Falcons may rest Julio this week but we should know more on his status after Thursday's practice. If Sanu misses, Taylor Gabriel and the Falcons running backs would likely play a large role in Week 14.
