Fantasy football waiver wire, Week 16: Mohamed Sanu vanishes
The Cincinnati receiver has barely been involved in recent weeks. We break down the fantasy implications.
The Cincinnati Bengals didn’t really need their entire offense Sunday. Rookie running back Jeremy Hill did ore than enough on his own to beat the Cleveland Browns. The focus on the running game meant there weren’t enough balls to go around, and wide receiver Mohamed Sanu suffered as a result. Sanu was barely involved in the Bengals’ 30-0 win Sunday.
Sanu was targeted three times in the game, catching one pass for 4 yards. That is the fifth game in the last six in which Sanu has had 23 or fewer receiving yards.
Fantasy impact: Early in the year, Sanu was very involved in the Bengals’ offense — in part because of some trick-play production and in (larger) part because Cincinnati’s No. 1 receiver, A.J. Green, missed a few games with injury. Of late, though, Sanu has done almost nothing, with two or fewer fantasy points in five of six games.
Sanu’s days of helpful fantasy production this season appear to have passed, at least as long as Green is healthy. He’s fully droppable in all leagues.
