If the Bengals' aerial attack is going to see significant improvement this season, someone is going to have to step up and into the No. 2 spot opposite A.J. Green.
The two most likely candidates to fill the role appear to be fourth-year wideout Brandon Tate—who was used exclusively in the return game last season—and rookie third-round pick Mohamed Sanu.
Sanu, a 6'2", 211-pound gifted route-runner appears perfectly suited for the role, but it appears that Tate has been impressive enough during the offseason to earn the early inside track.
Whoever wins the WR2 job in Cincy will likely only have borderline fantasy value. We believe that TE Jermaine Gresham will become Dalton's second-favorite target and will see an increase in his targets in 2012.
