Fantasy Impact:

Mohamed Sanu was very iffy all week, so he may not play a full complement of snaps. Marvin Jones would see extra playing time if Sanu is limited, and is a WR2/WR3 type after finding the endzone for three straight weeks. Andrew Hawkins is also active. He's mainly a slot receiver, so he may take the Bengals out of two-TE sets, limiting the upside of Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert.

Bengals activate Andrew Hawkins

Ian Rapoport, Twitter - [Full Article]

The Bengals announce that they’ve activated WR Andrew Hawkins to the roster from the Reserve/Injured list.

Fantasy Impact:

It appears that Hawkins may make his debut tonight. He caught 51 passes for 533 yards and four TDs in 14 games last year. Mohamed Sanu is questionable with a shoulder injury and 4-TD Marvin Jones is pushing for more playing time.

No practice Tuesday for Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bengals plays Thursday night against the Dolphins and if Sanu can't play it means Marvin Jones, fresh off a four-TD performance last week, could get more snaps and targets.

ESPN AFC North - [Full Article]

Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu is running very well, and you wouldn't know he had a season-ending foot injury in late November. But the wide receiver who stood out the most was Marvin Jones. A fifth-round pick from a year ago, he has a knack for getting open and can take off after making the catch.

Jamison Hensley - [Full Article]

ESPN AFC North blogger Jamison Hensley on WR Mohamed Sanu: "I saw him at the mandatory minicamp and he looked rusty in the one practice that I watched. Sanu dropped a couple of easy passes. But that could have been an "off" day for him. I expect him to start next to Green this year."

Fantasy Impact:

Wer'e also expecting Sanu to start for the Bengals. He never broke the 50-yard mark in 2012, but he did score four TDs in three games and could surprise as the Bengals' WR2 in 2013. He'll benefit from all the attention teams will pay to A.J. Green and Andy Dalton is a capable quarterback.

Last season, the Bengals’ most effective personnel package might have been one tight end, three wide receivers and one back with Mohamed Sanu and Andrew Hawkins complementing A.J. Green and Jermaine Gresham. OC Jay Gruden said the plan is still to feature that package quite a bit, probably in nickel.

“It’s just that our base package will probably feature more two tight ends (including rookie Tyler Eifert), two receivers rather than one tight end two backs,” he said. “We can get everything in our running game in that personnel group. It’s taking out a fullback and putting in a heck of a pass catcher and hopefully a good blocker. We like to mix up our personnel groupings and keep defenses off balance hopefully and be diverse in what we do. Our goal is to get our best players on the field.”

If the Bengals can force defenses to go nickel on first and second down with two tight ends on the field as the Patriots do, running backs BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Giovani Bernard are going to see a lot of daylight. The key is Eifert being multi-dimensional—not just a pass catcher.

“If Tyler is a good blocker, that puts us in a good advantage in the run game,” Gruden said. “That’s what New England does so well. They get teams to match up nickel with them and they can run the ball effectively out of that two tight end set. They have an extra big body blocking. Tyler has a long way to go to prove he’s a good blocker. Training camp will help him. Coach [Jonathan] Hayes has been around tight ends for a long time and is a great tutor for him.”

Fantasy Impact:

Eifert is going to have a tough time getting enough snaps to be fantasy relevant as a TE2.

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Bengals are hoping that receiver Mohamed Sanu is fully recovered from a broken foot that cut short his rookie season. Sanu, a third-round pick from Rutgers last year, had worked his way into the starting lineup when he broke his left foot and needed surgery on Dec. 3.

Sanu caught 16 passes for 154 yards with four touchdowns in nine games last season, ran five times for 15 yards and threw a 73-yard touchdown pass to Green out of a Wildcat formation.

Sanu expects to be at full speed for the team's offseason workouts in May.

Fantasy Impact:

Sanu will be a late-round sleeper heading into 2013 fantasy drafts.

Bengals.com - [Full Article]

Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu, who missed the last six games with a stress fracture in his left foot, says he's back running routes after being cleared in early February.

"It's great. It feels good. I've been working out and running," Sanu said this week during an interview about his experience at least year's NFL Scouting Combine. "I've been running routes for a while and it feels good."

Fantasy Impact:

Sanu caught four TDs in the three games before his injury and appeared to be locked in as the Bengals' WR2 opposite A.J. Green. He'll be a sleeper in 2013 coming off the foot injury.
