|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.
| A.J. Green likely out until Week 5 -- Mon Sep 15 4:35 pm --|
|Although the Cincinnati Bengals' victory over the Atlanta Falcons was a pyrrhic one, the early signs on A.J. Green's toe injury are positive.
If Green can't go against the Tennessee Titans this week, the Bengals' official website expects him to be ready after the Week 4 bye for the Oct. 5 game in New England.

FF Today's Take: The Bengals' Week 4 bye couldn't come at a better time for Green, who was held without a catch for the first time in his career after playing only six snaps in Week 2. Expect Cincinnati to focus even more on its running game against the Titans and look for Mohamed Sanu to remain Andy Dalton's primary target again.
| WR Marvin Jones sidelined with broken foot -- Mon Aug 11 6:05 pm --|
Expected to miss as much as 5-6 weeks
|The big injury has finally hit the Bengals this preseason when they revealed Monday that WR Marvin Jones had a pin put in his fifth metatarsal, indicating some kind of fracture that HC Marvin Lewis says will keep him out “a couple of weeks.”
Jones could be out at least five weeks and probably six. WR Mohamed Sanu, the man that replaces Jones in the starting lineup, had a similar injury with five weeks left in the 2012 season and was lost for the year and he didn’t play in the postseason. (Bengals.com)|
FF Today's Take: Jones' fantasy stock likely took a bit of a hit when new run-centric OC Hue Jackson took over for Jay Gruden this offseason, but this news takes a lot of luster off a player that had some low-end fantasy WR3 appeal. It is a bit ironic that Sanu suffered a similar injury last season and stands to benefit the most from his absence. Consider Jones as a late-round flyer at best now and Sanu as a late-round sleeper if Jones is eventually placed on the PUP list.
