  • Posted: 10/17/2017 9:33pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said he is 'hopeful' that WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) will return to practice this week. Sanu has been out since injuring his hamstring in Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Outside of his 85-yard performance in Week 2 Sanu has been pretty quiet this season, so odds are you'll want to see him make a positive contribution before considering him for your lineup, even against a vulnerable Patriots secondary.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 2:12pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) remained a non-participant in practice Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Sanu looks doubtful for Week 6. If he does miss the Falcons' contest then Taylor Gabriel and Austin Hooper should see more targets. Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman may also be more involved in the passing game. Gabriel and Hooper are sleeper candidates in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 10/9/2017 12:25pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Oct. 9.

    Huddle Up: Sanu was expected to miss multiple weeks because of the injury, so he probably will be sidelined for at least one more week. Taylor Gabriel should have a bigger role in the passing game and can be a flex option in deeper leagues this week.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 11:48am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in Week 4 and has been ruled out for the game.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to keep an eye out for an update on Sanu after the game or in the next day or two. Sanu was off to a solid start to the season, but owners should be able to find other options to use in their lineup is Sanu misses multiple games.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 9:54pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu managed five receptions for 85 yards in Week 2 against the Packers on six targets.

    Huddle Up: Sanu stepped up his game and was a nice secondary target in Matt Ryan's arsenal, which is exactly why he was brought in last season. Still, he is only worth a look as a low-end WR4 or WR5 in PPR fantasy formats heading into Week 3 at Detroit.

  • Posted: 9/16/2017 8:15pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu faces the Green Bay Packers in Week 2, and last year, he recorded a season-high nine catches for a season-high 84 yards and a touchdown against the Packers in the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Sanu also caught a touchdown against the Packers in the postseason. He could be worth a look as a flex play in deeper leagues in Week 2.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 3:37pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted six receptions for 47 yards in Week 1 at Chicago while posting a team-high nine targets.

    Huddle Up: The Bears did a good job of containing Julio Jones, making Matt Ryan look to his secondary and tertiary options in the pass game. Despite the solid performance Sanu remains more of a WR4 or flex play in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams. The Falcons host the Packers in Week 2.

  • Posted: 7/10/2017 10:01pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu has registered the lowest drop rate of any receiver over the past two seasons, misplaying only three balls on 109 catchable passes (2.8 percent) within that span.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has always boasted a reputation for having great hands, and this statistic further cements that. The 27-year-old is coming off a year in which he logged a career-high 59 catches for 653 yards and four touchdowns in his first year with the Falcons, and might be on the verge of putting up bigger numbers. He's definitely worth consideration as a WR3/FLEX option.

  • Posted: 7/7/2017 8:16pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu solidified himself as the No. 2 receiver with his play last season, according to John Fricke of CBS Atlanta.

    Huddle Up: Sanu may be the No. 2 option on paper, but there is a huge gap between Julio Jones and any other player in Atlanta's passing attack. Consider him a WR5 for fantasy purposes.

  • Posted: 1/22/2017 4:04pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu landed five passes for 52 yards and scored a touchdown in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Jan. 22.

    Huddle Up: Sanu proved to be a competent complement to Julio Jones this season and has WR4 appeal in deep drafts for 2017 leagues.

  • Posted: 12/24/2016 3:46pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted three receptions for 56 yards in the Week 16 game against the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted four times.

    Huddle Up: Sanu missed some time down the stretch, but he was able to return and make his presence felt for fantasy owners in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 10:46pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) returned to action in Week 15 against the San Francisco 49ers. He posted three receptions for 44 yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Sanu played third fiddle behind Aldrick Robinson and Taylor Gabriel in the return, and is nothing more than a WR4 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 16 against Carolina, as Julio Jones might be back from injury, too.

  • Posted: 12/16/2016 5:53pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

    Huddle Up: Sanu may receive more targets than normal with Julio Jones out of the lineup. He has posted at least 65 yards in three of his last five games and may be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 12/15/2016 7:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) remained a limited participant in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: Sanu could return to action in Week 15, but he is only worth taking a chance on if Julio Jones is unable to play.

  • Posted: 12/14/2016 3:10pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) was limited during practice Wednesday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: It appears Sanu has a decent chance to play in Week 15 after missing the last game, but owners should check on his status later in the week. He should have a solid role in the passing game and could see more targets if Julio Jones is not able to play. Sanu could be considered a flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 12/9/2016 11:53am ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) has been ruled out for Week 14 against the Los Angeles Rams.

    Huddle Up: With Julio Jones already a game-time decision due to turf toe, expect a lot of the running game and Taylor Gabriel this week. Gabriel has already been performing like a low-end WR1 with just a handful of targets each week, so he is in a potential blow-up spot should Atlanta give him closer to 10.

  • Posted: 12/5/2016 12:27pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) suffered a groin injury in Week 13, but he could still practice Thursday, Dec. 8.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has had a disappointing inaugural campaign with the Falcons despite being their No. 2 wide receiver. He has seen a little over five targets per game, but he has only managed more than 70 yards three times and has only scored thrice, too, and his third touchdown was back on October 30. He's not a recommended start even if he plays.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 6:32pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu was held to just two catches for 14 yards in the Week 10 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was targeted just two times.

    Huddle Up: The yardage total and targets were each season lows. In contrast, Taylor Gabriel was targeted five times and he scored a touchdown for the third straight game. He appears to be taking away from Sanu's targets. Sanu is nothing more than a WR4 for fantasy owners in Week 12 once the team returns from a bye.

  • Posted: 11/3/2016 10:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted five receptions for 74 yards on seven targets in the Week 9 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Thursday, Nov. 3.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has 14 grabs for 158 yards and a touchdown over his past two games, and he is worth a look as a WR3 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 in Philadelphia.

  • Posted: 10/30/2016 9:50pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted nine receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown in the Week 8 game against the Green Bay Packers. He was targeted 10 times.

    Huddle Up: Julio Jones was a little banged up in the second half and Sanu filled the role of No. 1 receiver well, snagging the game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter. Sanu should be treated as a WR3 heading into Week 9 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team with a very poor pass defense.

  • Posted: 10/29/2016 8:56pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu is completely recovered from shoulder and groin injuries, according to head coach Dan Quinn, and Quinn said he has been happy with Sanu's play this season.

    Huddle Up: He hasn't topped 50 yards or scored since Week 1, and despite Quinn's comments, Sanu hasn't proven himself worthy of starting in any fantasy format.

  • Posted: 10/27/2016 2:20pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 27.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has a favorable matchup versus the Green Bay Packers, but he has been largely inconsistent this year. Starting him as a flex is agreeable, at least for this week, but anything more than that is too risky.

  • Posted: 10/26/2016 2:26pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Oct. 26.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has been largely inconsistent in his first season with the Falcons. He and the Falcons could very well be involved in a shootout with the Green Bay Packers, though, so don't completely disregard the Falcon's No. 2 receiver.

  • Posted: 10/21/2016 5:12pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 21, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

    Huddle Up: Sanu has had a decent role in the passing game this season but has not recorded more than 47 yards in a game since Week 1. Owners should be able to find better options and can avoid Sanu.

  • Posted: 10/20/2016 2:23pm ET

    Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 20.

    Huddle Up: Sanu wasn't on the injury report yesterday, so he'll really need to be tracked before this weekend's game. If Sanu can play, he has a decent matchup against the San Diego Chargers in what could be a high-scoring affair. Atlanta's No. 2 receiver is a flex option for Week 7.
