Mohamed Sanu Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Shark Bites

The Patriots have traded a 2nd-round pick to the Falcons in exchange for WR Mohamed Sanu. New England tried to acquire Sanu during this spring's draft, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, so it's clearly a player the team covets. Sanu was a steady producer in Atlanta, averaging 4.2 catches and 47 yards per game over the past 3+ seasons. He played primarily in the slot for the Falcons, but we'll see how he fits into the Patriots' WR corps alongside Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon (once he's back from his knee injury), Phillip Dorsett and Jakobi Meyers. When everyone's healthy, it figures to be Edelman, Gordon and Sanu in 3-WR sets. Sanu has a brand new offense to learn, though. And note that he's going from the league's 2nd pass-heaviest offense to its 14th run-heaviest. Sanu is worth stashing in most fantasy leagues but won't be a recommended Week 8 starter. The Falcons, meanwhile, figures to roll with either Justin Hardy or Russell Gage as the #3 WR. But Sanu's departure will mostly just free up extra targets for Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Austin Hooper.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) is not listed on the final injury report. He only got in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, though, so he’s clearly at less than 100%. That makes Sanu a shaky Week 9 fantasy play.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) missed practice on Thursday after putting in a limited workout on Wednesday. Sanu played through this hip injury in Week 7, but the fact that he's missing time after the Week 8 bye is a serious concern. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Saturday that both WR Calvin Ridley (ankle) and WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) will play against the Giants on Monday night. Ridley practiced on Friday and Saturday and said he feels like his "normal self." Sanu only worked on Saturday. "I feel good, but it's a little [pain] management, too," he said of his bruised hip. "It's definitely going to get better. I mean, it's way better than it was.'' Consider both Sanu and Ridley risk/reward Week 7 fantasy plays.

Falcons WR Calvin Ridley (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Friday, but WR Mohamed Sanu (hip) remained sidelined. Ridley now seems to have a better shot to play against the Giants on Monday night. We'll get another update on both guys tomorrow.

Falcons WRs Calvin Ridley (ankle) and Mohamed Sanu (hip) did not practice on Thursday. It's a surprise after HC Dan Quinn said this morning that he expected both guys to participate. We'll see if they can get on the field tomorrow, but Ridley and Sanu both look no better than 50/50 for Monday night's game vs. the Giants.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu exited in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Bucs with hip injury. He was on the injury report this week with a hip, although it's unclear if this is related. We'll update Sanu's status when we learn more.

The Falcons selected Alabama WR Calvin Ridley with the 26th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. Ridley broke Amari Cooper’s school record for receiving yards by a freshman with 1,045 in 2015. He didn’t reach 1,000 yards in either his final 2 seasons, although Alabama’s passing game wasn’t as effective. Consider that Ridley posted a 63.6% catch rate last year, while all other Tide wideouts combined to haul in just 52.0% of their targets. Ridley is arriving from a pro-style offense and is 1 of the best route runners in the draft class. In other words, he’s about as pro-ready as they come. The concerns are that he’s small (6’0, 189 pounds), unathletic (8th percentile SPARQ score) and relatively old (he’ll turn 24 in December). It all makes it tough to get excited about his upside. So does the fact that he’s stuck with target hog Julio Jones in the short term. Ridley will battle with Mohamed Sanu for #2 on the totem pole.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) is not listed on the final Week 7 injury report. He’ll play in Sunday night’s plus matchup against the Patriots. Sanu has averaged 7 targets in 3 full games this season and is in the WR3 discussion this week.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) returned to practice on Wednesday. It puts him on track to play against the Patriots on Sunday night. Sanu will be in the WR3 mix for that plus matchup.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Now 2 weeks into a 2-3 week timetable, consider him questionable for Week 7. His absence on Sunday makes WR Taylor Gabriel and TE Austin Hooper more intriguing fantasy fliers.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. It's not a good sign coming out of the Week 5 bye. It's also not a surprise, though, after ESPN's Vaughn McClure reported that Sanu would miss 2-3 weeks. He seems unlikely to play against the Dolphins on Sunday. That'd figure to mean more action for WR Taylor Gabriel and TE Austin Hooper.

ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports that Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with his hamstring injury. Atlanta has a Week 5 bye, so Sanu figures to miss a game or 2. He averaged a healthy 7 targets per game over the first 3, so his absence will create extra opportunities for guys like WR Taylor Gabriel and TE Austin Hooper.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu is out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Bills with a hamstring injury. With WR Julio Jones also out, Atlanta is down to Taylor Gabriel and Justin Hardy as the top 2 WRs.
