|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.

Giovani Bernard finding success as runner/receiver on passing downs
|Offensive coordinator Hue Jackson is sticking by Jeremy Hill and will not abandon the I-form, but acknowledges that Giovani Bernard in passing game sets has given the offense more versatility. (Cincinnati Enquirer)|
FF Today's Take: Jackson's game plans have produced five straight games with at least 389 net offensive yards, with most of the impact coming
with key receivers involved. Whereas pounding the football downhill with Hill means taking Mohamed Sanu, Marvin Jones or maybe Tyler Eifert off the field. Hill still has RB2/flex value, but with the Bengals finding so much success with their myriad passing game weapons, it's hard to imagine too many games where Hill reaches RB1 status.
