|Forced into the No.2 receiver role because of the season ending injury to Marvin Jones, the former Rutgers standout set career highs in catches (57), yards (790) and touchdowns (5). And while he technically finished as a low-end WR3, most of Sanuís yearly value came in a total of five games where he totaled nearly 63 percent of his season yardage total and scored four of his five touchdowns (Coincidently those were games missed by A.J. Green, leaving Sanu as the de-facto receiving threat.) Outside of those five games, and especially down the stretch, Sanu barely registered a blip on the fantasy radar. An inability to get open against quicker, and more physical defenders, and plagued by a league leading 14 dropped passes, Sanu will find it nearly impossible to be fantasy relevant with the return of Marvin Jones and Tyler Eifert. Sanu will probably be relegated to the No.5 passing option at best, and that simply isnít enough volume to give him much fantasy value.
|Bengals OC: Jeremy Hill still the starter|
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)|
FFToday'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.
