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 doubtful, Gresham questionable-- Fri Jan 2 2:35 pm --
Missed practice Friday
The chances A.J. Green plays in this weekend's Wild Card game against Indianapolis took a hit Friday. And now the Bengals wait with hope giving way to reality.
He was listed as doubtful on the official injury report.Green suffered a concussion after being stripped of the football Sunday against Pittsburgh. He did not practice Wednesday, practiced in a limited capacity Thursday, was held completely out of practice this Friday.
FF Today's Take:Bad news for the Benalgs as they will be without their best wide receiver. Mohamed Sanu will attempt to fill the void but expect Cincinnati to attempt a run-heavy gameplan with Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard. TE Jermaine Gresham (back) did practice Friday and is listed as questionable. He will be a gametime decision.
