New England Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu hauled in two of his four targets for four yards and added an eight-yard run on his only rushing attempt in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: It's definitely not what fantasy owners were looking for after he posted a 10-81-1 line in his last game before the team's Week 10 bye. Then again, New England's offense wasn't exactly clicking on all cylinders against an inspired Eagles' defense. Sanu should be considered a low-end WR3 or WR4 option in Week 12 versus the Dallas Cowboys.

New England Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu had 10 receptions, 81 yards and a touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, Nov. 3.
Huddle Up: After a quiet debut against the Browns, Sanu was a focal point of the passing attack along with Julian Edelman. Sanu's 14 targets led the team, and he scored their only receiving TD. He's always been more of a chain mover than a big-play threat, but if he continues to get tons of looks he'll have legitimate value going forward, particularly in PPR leagues. One caveat to consider, however, is that we still don't know what the Pats passing game will look like with N'Keal Harry, who could be active in Week 11 against the Eagles.

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu was acquired by the New England Patriots Tuesday, Oct. 22, in exchange for a second-round pick. The Patriots previously tried to acquire Sanu during the NFL draft.
Huddle Up: Sanu has been quiet with a 33-313-1 line in seven games this season, but he is a good possession receiver whose value in PPR leagues increases a bit. He should be rostered in all formats, but give him a week or two to get acclimated before you can expect results in your flex spot.

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted just one catch for three yards on two targets in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Sanu was a bummer for fantasy owners using him as a low-end WR4 in PPR leagues. He takes a bigger hit, too, if Matt Ryan (ankle) cannot go in Week 8. It might be best to avoid him across the board against the Seattle Seahawks.

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught three of his four targets for 29 scoreless yards in Week 6 versus the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Sanu had established himself a nice fantasy WR3 floor over the previous three weeks, so owners counting on him for another five or six catches and about 60 yards came away disappointed. Making matters worse is Matt Ryan threw for 356 yards. Nevertheless, Sanu makes for a decent floor play in the flex in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught all five of his targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 versus the Houston Texans.
Huddle Up: Just how bad are things in Atlanta at the moment? Sanu (29) has more catches than Julio Jones (26) and Calvin Ridley (21) and ranks second among the group with 36 targets. Much like teammate Austin Hooper, Sanu is taking advantage of garbage time, although his TD catch-and-run opened the scoring in this contest. The Falcons' primary slot receiver is generally a high-floor, low-upside fantasy option; he should remain that in a soft matchup in Week 6 against the burnable secondary of the Arizona Cardinals.

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu caught nine passes for 91 yards against the Tennessee Titans in Week 4. He was targeted 12 times during the game.
Huddle Up: Sanu has been a big part of the passing game over the last two weeks with 15 receptions and 166 yards over that span. He has shown a good connection with quarterback Matt Ryan and has a chance to be at least a flex option next week.

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu, WR Justin Hardy and DB Kendall Sheffield are expected to all see work returning kicks and punts while RB Kenjon Barner (concussion) is sidelined.
Huddle Up: The move shouldn't have much of a fantasy impact on any of the players involved, but in scoring formats that happen to include return yards, Sanu could be worth a flier as a flex play.

Atlanta Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu posted six grabs for 75 yards on six targets and he added a two-yard rush in Week 3 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Sanu hasn't been able to get into the end zone yet, but he has at least four catches in each of his three games to serve as a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in PPR leagues. The Falcons host the Titans in Week 4.
