Mohamed Sanu Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The 2016 Falcons led the league in scoring and finished 2nd in total yards. So, not surprisingly, they don't want to alter the offense, despite the departure of OC Kyle Shanahan. "We love the way that we attack, and it took a lot of work to put that system in place," HC Dan Quinn said. "Along with [GM Thomas Dimitroff], we have a real emphasis now on how we can fit guys into that system. It's very important that we stay consistent with that." In theory, it's good news for QB Matt Ryan and Atlanta's skill-position guys. But we'll see exactly how similar the offense is under new OC Steve Sarkisian.

The Falcons are set to hire Steve Sarkisian as their new OC, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The 42-year-old has spent the bulk of his coaching career so far in the NCAA. His only NFL experience was as the Raiders' QB coach in 2004. (Kerry Collins was his starter.) Sarkisian has loads of talent to work with in Atlanta. But, at least on paper, he's a significant downgrade from Kyle Shanahan.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) put in a full practice on Friday and isn’t listed on the final Week 15 injury report. He’ll play against the 49ers on Sunday and figures to serve as Atlanta’s #1 WR with Julio Jones out. The groin issue adds some risk, but Sanu is certainly in the WR3 discussion.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) practiced on Wednesday. That gives him a shot to return for this weekend's game against the 49ers. Sanu could find himself as the #1 WR if Julio Jones sits again.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (toe) is inactive for today’s game against the Bucs. He obviously didn’t look or feel good enough to go in pregame warmups. With WR Mohamed Sanu also out, Atlanta is down to Taylor Gabriel, Justin Hardy and Aldrick Robinson. Expect heavy doses of RBs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.

WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) has been ruled out for this weekend’s game vs. the Rams. Between his absence and WR Julio Jones’ turf toe, WR Taylor Gabriel figures to play a big role on Sunday. He’s a viable WR3.

The Falcons are not optimistic about WR Mohamed Sanu's (groin) chances of playing against the Rams this weekend, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. His absence would figure to mean a bigger role for WR Taylor Gabriel, who's already seen 5+ targets in 4 straight. He'll be on the WR3 radar if Sanu ends up inactive.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (groin) did not practice on Wednesday. It's unclear if he's in danger of missing this weekend's game against the Rams. With Julio Jones dealing with turf toe, Atlanta's WR corps is banged up. Taylor Gabriel could be in for a bigger role on Sunday.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu will be playing with a separated shoulder today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Sanu suffered the injury last week. He didn't practice on Wednesday but put in a limited workout on Thursday and was a full participant on Friday. We'll see how big a factor the shoulder is against the Panthers today, but Sanu is an extremely shaky fantasy starter.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu is not listed on the Week4 injury report. He’s good to go for Sunday’s game against the Panthers after leaving last week with a shoulder injury. Sanu has seen just 9 targets over the past 2 weeks and is a poor fantasy play.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) returned to practice on Thursday. He was limited, so we're not yet considering him a lock to play this weekend. But he's at least trending in the right direction. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) did not practice on Wednesday. ESPN's Ed Werder reported earlier this week that Sanu is expected to play against the Panthers this weekend, but we'll need to keep an eye on his status over the next few days.

ESPN's Ed Werder hears that Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) is expected to play against the Panthers this weekend. He was knocked out of Monday night's game shortly before halftime. We still don't have any specifics on his injury. We'll track his status throughout the week.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu suffered a shoulder injury in the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Saints and will not return. He finishes with 3 catches on 4 targets for 31 yards. We should get an update on Sanu after the game or on Tuesday.

3:00pm EDT 9/18/16

Falcons WRs Julio Jones (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Raiders. He put in a full practice on Friday and was removed from the final injury report, so that ankle shouldn’t be much of an issue. Mohamed Sanu (ankle) is also active and is in the WR3 discussion.

Falcons WRs Julio Jones (ankle) and Mohamed Sanu (ankle) were both full participants in Friday's practice and removed from the team's final injury report. They're good to go for this weekend's game against a Raiders secondary that just allowed 423 yards and 4 TDs. Jones is a high-end WR1, as usual, and Sanu is in the WR3 mix.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) was limited again in Thursday's practice. It's not a major concern -- Jones is still fully expected to play this weekend -- but it'd be nice to see him get in a full workout on Friday. WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) was also limited for the 2nd straight practice on Thursday.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. The fact that he was out there at all is a good sign and puts him on track to be ready for this weekend's game against the Raiders. We'll see if he's able to put in a full workout on Thursday or Friday.

Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu injured his ankle and was spotted "limping heavily" after Sunday's loss to the Bucs, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure. We didn't notice Sanu miss much time during his 5-80-1 Falcons debut, but we'll look for an update on his status tomorrow.

The Falcons have signed WR Mohamed Sanu to a 5-year, $32.5 million deal.  That amount of coin suggests Atlanta views Sanu as a starter opposite Julio Jones.  It's a leap of faith for a guy who's never topped 790 yards or 5 TDs and has averaged just 11.8 yards per catch through 4 NFL seasons.  Sanu did tally 18 catches for 299 yards and 1 TD in 3 games without A.J. Green back in 2014, so perhaps there's some untapped potential here.  WR Julio Jones will continue to hog targets in Atlanta, though, and Sanu's lack of big-play ability leaves him without much fantasy upside.
