|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 62, 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.

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.

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.

Making "good progress" after suffering calf injury in Week 2
|Falcons All-Pro WR Julio Jones, who had a player fall on the back of his calf with 5:02 to play in the Oakland game, did not practice on Thursday.
Hes making good progress as we are going, Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. Hes able to participate in some of the walk-throughs to get moving around.

FF Today's Take: Jones is no stranger to playing hurt, but there doesn't appear to be much concern (yet) about his status for Week 3. He's a WR1 every week he hits the field, but it should be noted he has seen a total of 13 targets through two weeks - a number he hit or surpassed in a single game eight times last season and the same number Mohamed Sanu has. Unless he encounters some kind of setback, he is a must-start versus New Orleans on Monday Night Football.
