Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu is preparing to play all sorts of different roles in new OC Hue Jackson's offense.  In Monday's practice alone, he caught a TD pass, threw a TD and took a handoff.  “You never know," Sanu said of his role.  "You have to see when the day comes what he brings to the table and full steam ahead.”  We're curious to see exactly what Jackson has in mind for Sanu, but we're still not expecting him to be a reliable fantasy option.  He's the Bengals' #3 WR behind A.J. Green and Marvin Jones.

Bengals WRs Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) and Andrew Hawkins (ankle) are active for tonight's game against the Dolphins.  Sanu only practiced on Wednesday this week and wasn't expected to play.  Hawkins will be making his 2013 debut after an early-August ankle injury.  Neither guy is a fantasy option, but their presence puts a dent in WR Marvin Jones' outlook.  Consider Jones a risk/reward WR3 tonight.

Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins.  He only practiced on Wednesday this week and looks like a game-time call.  Sanu is off the fantasy radar, but his absence would mean more action for the burgeoning Marvin Jones.

In attendance at Bengals camp, ESPN's Jamison Hensley says Marvin Jones "stood out the most" among WRs.  "He has a knack for getting open and can take off after making the catch," Hensley adds.  Jones is certainly a big-play threat.  He averaged 14.6 yards per catch at Cal and ran a 4.46-second 40-yard dash at last year's Combine.  Mohamed Sanu remains the favorite for the #2 WR job in Cincy, though.  We'll see if Jones makes a move for that spot over the next month.

Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu declared himself 100% healthy at the start of OTAs on Monday.  "No nagging pain," he said.  Sanu's rookie campaign ended in Week 12 with a stress fracture to his foot.  He underwent surgery on December 3rd and resumed running in mid-February.  Sanu was coming on before going down last year, racking up 11 catches and 4 TDs in his final 3 games.  He'll enter training camp as the favorite for #2 WR duties.  Fellow 2nd-year WR Marvin Jones will push him for the spot.

Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu says he has been running routes since early February and that the foot feels good. The 2nd-round pick missed the final 5 games with a stress fracture in his left foot. The team didn't give him a ton of targets as a rookie, but coaches were working him more into the game plan when he got hurt. All 4 of Sanu's TDs came in the 3 games preceding the injury. No Bengals WR besides A.J. Green stood out last year. That means opportunity in 2013.

Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu suffered a stress fracture in his foot in Thursday's practice.  He'll undergo surgery and miss the remainder of the season.  It's a tough break for a rookie who was starting to come on.  Sanu had scored 4 times in his last 3 games.  He's expected to be back to 100% in 2-3 months, so the injury shouldn't impact his 2013 outlook.  WRs Brandon Tate and Marvin Jones figure to battle for #2 duties in Cincinnati the rest of the way, but neither is a fantasy option.

Bengals QB Andy Dalton expects Brandon Tate, Armon Binns, and Mohamed Sanu to rotate snaps at #2 WR this season.  "Right now, the way they’ve performed, I have no reservation whatsoever of anybody coming in there," OC Jay Gruden added. "My play calling won’t alter one bit if Sanu, Armon or Tate is out there."  While we expect Sanu to eventually take this job and run with it, all 3 guys should be avoided in redraft leagues.  WR A.J. Green and TE Jermaine Gresham will dominate targets in Cincinnati this year.

Bengals 3rd-round rookie WR Mohamed Sanu had a quiet spring, while WRs Brandon Tate and Armon Binns consistently turned heads.  When asked about the #2 WR spot heading into training camp, OC Jay Gruden said that Tate and Binns will split reps.  No mention of Sanu.  We still like his odds of finding his way into the starting lineup at some point this season, but Sanu is buried in the pecking order at this point.  He's not worth a look in redraft leagues.  We wouldn't bother with Tate or Binns either.

The Bengals added Cal WR Marvin Jones in the 5th-round of the draft.  He never produced big numbers in college, but Jones impressed with a 4.47 40-yard dash at the Combine.  The 6'2, 199-pounder is a favorite of draft analysts like Greg Cosell and Rob Rang because of his change-of-direction, crisp routes, and sure hands.  Jones will push fellow rookie WR Mohamed Sanu for the Bengals' #2 WR job.  It'll be a situation worth tracking this summer.

The Bengals selected Rutgers WR Mohamed Sanu with the 83rd overall pick. This is a pure possession receiver. Sanu measures in at 6’2 and 211 pounds and ran a 4.67 40-yard dash at the Combine. He’s not going to run away from anyone but is praised for his route-running and hands. Sanu isn’t afraid to go over the middle either. He projects as a nice complement to A.J. Green as Cincinnati’s #2 WR. Sanu could take over that job as early as this season.
