Mohamed Sanu Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Fantasy Football News 2022

Most Recent Shark Bites

Bengals WR Marvin Jones worked with the 1st-team offense on Wednesday for the 1st time this offseason, per insider Paul Dehner.  Jones and A.J. Green were on the outside with Mohamed Sanu in the slot in 3-WR sets.  Jones got off to a rough start this summer, missing time with minor injuries and getting called out by HC Marvin Lewis.  But he's come on lately and is still our bet to win Cincinnati's #2 WR job.  Jones is an intriguing late-round flier in fantasy drafts.

Bengals WR Marvin Jones took the field Saturday for the 1st time this week. He had been sitting out with hamstring soreness -- and drawing the ire of his head coach. If he can stay healthy from this point forward, though, Jones should be able to win Cincinnati's #2 WR spot over Mohamed Sanu. We'll be interested to watch the rest of Jones' preseason.

Bengals WR Marvin Jones put in only limited workouts when the Bengals opened OTAs Tuesday. "I'm good. I just have to clear the physical," Jones said afterward, per ESPN.com. Sounds good, but Jones failed the physical last week that would have cleared him for full practice. It's only noteworthy in May because he missed all of last season with foot and ankle injuries. Jones will need to prove this summer that he's all the way back and that we can count on him to stay on the field. More likely, however, he'll remain a late-round option in your fantasy football draft with sizable injury risk. Iffy status for Jones could help the outlooks for TE Tyler Eifert, WR Mohamed Sanu and even RB Giovani Bernard by potentially leaving targets on the field.

NFL Network's Kimberly Jones reports that Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham (back) won't play against the Colts today.  It's another blow to an already thin pass-catching corps.  WR Mohamed Sanu should dominate targets when Cincinnati goes to the air this afternoon, but expect a run-heavy attack.

NFL Network's Kimberly Jones confirms that the Bengals are not expecting to have WR A.J. Green (concussion) for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Colts.  He's yet to receive full medical clearance and time for him to do so is running out.  Green's absence will vault WR Mohamed Sanu to the top of the depth chart.  He racked up 21 catches, 383 yards and 2 TDs in the 4 games that Green missed all or most of this season. Just note that Sanu will see lots of stud CB Vontae Davis.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Colts.  After putting in a limited practice on Thursday, he was held out on Friday.  It looks like he suffered a setback.  We should know by tomorrow whether he's been cleared to play, but that's obviously a long shot at this point.  Green's absence would mean more targets for WR Mohamed Sanu and TE Jermaine Gresham, but look for a run-heavy attack from Cincinnati.

NFL insider Albert Breer passes along word that Bengals WR A.J. Green is dealing with ligament damage under his big toe. Breer says the injury is “lingering” and notes that the team will be “careful” with their young star. Green’s highly unlikely to suit up vs. Baltimore, but we’ll have official word by 12pm EST on Sunday. Mohamed Sanu looks poised to see 8+ targets for the 4th straight game.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Ravens.  There was early-week optimism that Green would return for this one, but he didn't progress as well as hoped over the past few days.  He'll now aim for a Week 9 return.  WR Mohamed Sanu gets another game as Cincinnati's top dog, but he's just a WR3 against Ravens shutdown CB Jimmy Smith. 

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Colts. It’s a downgrade from last week, when he was questionable before being declared inactive on game day. Green won’t play this weekend, and HC Marvin Lewis said Friday that the timetable for Green’s return is “up in the air.” Mohamed Sanu gets another game as Cincinnati’s #1 WR and is a solid fantasy play against the Colts.

The Bengals have placed WR Marvin Jones on IR, ending his 2014 season.  He played in exactly 0 games this year, missing the first 3 with a broken foot and the last 2 with an ankle injury.  We still don't know the extent of the ankle injury and whether he'll need surgery, but Jones should be back to 100% for the offseason program.  He'll have a battle on his hands with Mohamed Sanu for #2 WR duties.  Jones is still worth stashing in dynasty leagues.

Bengals insider Geoff Hobson hears that the team "may think about surgery" for WR Marvin Jones' ankle.  Jones injured the ankle in practice a couple weeks ago and has yet to get back on the field.  We haven't heard any details, but it's obviously more than a minor injury.  Jones is only worth stashing in deep fantasy leagues at this point.  Mohamed Sanu's stock continues to rise in the meantime.

10:32am EDT 10/12/14

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) is inactive for today’s game against the Panthers on Sunday. The team considers him “day-to-day,” but don’t bank on him returning next week. Mohamed Sanu will serve as the Bengals’ top WR today, making him a solid WR3 in fantasy.

The Bengals have ruled WR Marvin Jones out for Sunday's game against the Panthers with his ankle sprain.  Jones had been listed as questionable but missed practice all week.  No fantasy owners should have been planning on using him.  This confirmation of his status boosts the upside for WR Mohamed Sanu a bit, as the Bengals also seem likely to be without WR A.J. Green.  RB Giovani Bernard also only looks better as a receiver given all the injuries.  And an offense likely to go run-heavy might even pump some fantasy value into #2 RB Jeremy Hill in a positive rushing matchup.

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) was in a walking boot at Friday’s practice, according to insider Geoff Hobson. ESPN’s Bob Holtzman confirms that Green is out for this weekend’s game against the Panthers. Fantasy owners should be preparing for a multi-game absence. Mohamed Sanu will serve as the Bengals’ top WR while Green is out. Playing the best football of his career, Sanu is a viable WR3 against the Panthers this week. Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher will serve as the #2 and #3 WRs but would be desperation fantasy plays. RBs Gio Bernard and Jeremy Hill should combine for 30+ touches on Sunday.

Bengals WR A.J. Green was carted off the practice field on Wednesday. Beat writers believe that he suffered a re-aggravation of his right toe injury, but we should learn more after practice. We already know that Marvin Jones (ankle) missed Wednesday’s session. He remains very iffy to play Sunday vs. Carolina. If both Green and Jones sit out, Cincinnati will be left with Mohamed Sanu and Dane Sanzenbacher at WR. That would obviously put a huge dent in Andy Dalton’s outlook.

Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday night's game against the Patriots.  He was set to make his 2014 debut after breaking his foot in August but tweaked his ankle in practice on Wednesday.  Mohamed Sanu will get another game with #2 WR duties to himself.  He's just a low-end WR3 in fantasy.

Bengals HC Marvin Jones confirmed that WR Marvin Jones (foot) will return to practice this week.  It puts him on track to make his 2014 debut when Cincinnati comes out of its Week 4 bye.  We'll need to see how snaps are divvied between Jones and Mohamed Sanu, but Jones is worth stashing now in deeper leagues.  He was a top-20 fantasy WR over the final 4 games of last season and was slated to start alongside A.J. Green before breaking his foot in August.

Bengals TE Tyler Eifert has been placed on short-term IR.  It knocks him out for 8 weeks, so he'll be eligible to return in Week 10.  We wouldn't bother stashing Eifert in any redraft leagues.  His absence will mean more action for TE Jermaine Gresham, but he remains an unexciting fantasy option.  Gio Bernard, Mohamed Sanu and, eventually, Marvin Jones could also see more targets with Eifert sidelined.

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports that the Bengals believe TE Tyler Eifert suffered a dislocated elbow in Sunday's win over the Ravens. "That'd likely put him out for an extended period of time," Breer adds.  We should get a better idea of Eifert's timetable within the next couple days, but he'll be droppable in most fantasy leagues.  Eifert's absence should mean a few extra looks for TE Jermaine Gresham, but he's still an unappealing fantasy option.  WR Mohamed Sanu -- and WR Marvin Jones when he returns -- could be the primary beneficiaries. 

Bengals WR Marvin Jones will miss “a few weeks” with a broken foot, per HC Marvin Lewis. Jones had a pin inserted into his 5th metatarsal after suffering the injury over the weekend. It’s been a tough stretch for Jones.  He missed time early in camp with an ankle injury and sat out the preseason opener. Consider the 3rd-year WR questionable for Week 1.  Mohamed Sanu will handle #2 duties while Jones is sidelined.

UPDATE: Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com says Jones is likely out "at least" 5 weeks and "probably" 6 weeks.  He's now a candidate to land on short-term IR, a move that would keep him out for the first 8 games.  We've updated our projections for Jones and Sanu.
