Mohamed Sanu Fantasy Football News 2019

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.

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 Taylor Gabriel (foot) is out for Sunday's game against the Saints. We don't have any details on the injury or know whether he'll be available for the playoffs. Gabriel's absence leaves Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu, Justin Hardy and Aldrick Robinson as Atlanta's top 4 WRs.

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.

2:13pm EST 12/11/16

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.
