Bengals Beat: WR Mohamed Sanu will continue to be involved

ESPN - [Full Article]

Bengals WR A.J. Green has missed parts of four games this season because of a nagging big-toe injury, and in his place the Bengals have just rolled out a strong group of receivers, running backs and tight ends. Mohamed Sanu has been the most direct replacement for Green, catching 21 passes for 383 yards and a touchdown in Green's absence. Since Sanu has served as a runner on reverses, and passed balls in addition to catching them, he has racked up 460 yards of total offense in relief of Green. That's good enough for 31.3 percent of the Bengals' entire offensive production in the games Green has missed. Even if Green returns, expect Sanu to factor in similar ways this week and on down the line.

Fantasy Impact:

We're seeing Sanu fall down WR rankings as Green is expected to return this week, but we still consider him a good WR2, especially since six teams are on bye in Week 9. Sanu averaged 8.8 FP in the three games in which Green has played, and those are #20-type WR numbers. Considering Green won't be 100 percent, Sanu should continue to be heavily involved in the team's offense.

Marvin Lewis: A.J. Green's return 'up in the air'

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Bengals still aren't exactly sure when injured Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green will be rejoining their ranks, coach Marvin Lewis said Friday afternoon.

After Green's visit to a foot specialist last week in Cincinnati, the hope was that the third-year star wideout would be back after this week. But the possibility exists his return could take a little longer.

Asked Friday about a more defined timetable for Green's return from a big toe injury that kept him out of last week's game and will do the same this Sunday, Lewis simply said "the time is up in the air."

Fantasy Impact:

As we've stated before, the Colts are not a favorable matchup for wide receivers. Mohamed Sanu is a strong WR2, while Brandon Tate is one of our Sneaky Starts with Green out of the lineup.

Marvin Jones (ankle) could need surgery

There is also the unknown about when WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is going to return. As in, there is no time frame and there is some talk that the Bengals may think about surgery for Jones.

Fantasy Impact:

Things are now not looking good for Jones who was supposed to be back Week 5 and was one of our 2014 sleepers. With A.J. Green also out, Mohamed Sanu is now the clear WR1 and is coming off a monster game in Week 6. It's also good news for TE Jermaine Gresham and RBs Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. Gresham had six catches in Week 6. Bernard could see more work in the passing game with Hill spelling him for some carries.

A.J. Green could miss Week 7

Good news and bad news for Bengals WR A.J. Green. Said his toe won't require surgery, but expects to miss Week 7 too.

Fantasy Impact:

Green will see a doctor again on Friday according to the Tweet, so we likely won't know more about Green until then. However, it sounds like owners need to prepare to be without him in Week 7. Mohamed Sanu had a monster game with a 10-120-1 line in Week 6. Andy Dalton spread the ball around as Dane Sanzenbacher and Brandon Tate were involved with four catches each and Jermaine Gresham even had six catches and 68 yards. Cincy does have an early afternoon game at Indy Week 7 and it's possible Marvin Jones returns.

Marvin Jones officially OUT for Week 6

Saturday, October 11, 2014, 5:02pm

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Marvin Jones might have been listed as questionable on the Cincinnati Bengals' injury report, but he won't play Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.

The receiver was downgraded to out ahead of Sunday's game.

It's not a surprise in the least that Jones won't see action, as the wideout has missed practice this entire week with an ankle injury. Jones hasn't seen the field this season after suffering a foot injury back in August.

Fantasy Impact:

The Bengals will be without two dynamic receivers. A.J. Green is "day to day" after wearing a walking boot Friday and is not expected to play Sunday. Mohamed Sanu will be Andy Dalton's No. 1 target Sunday. Sanu is tied for the team lead in receptions (17) to go along with 234 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Look for the Bengals to also use a lot of RBs Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. Bernard could see a lot more time in the passing game.

Friday, October 10, 2014, 6:13pm

Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe, questionable) missed practice again Friday and is questionable for Week 6. Ian Rapoport reports that Green is not expected to play in Week 6 after meeting with his doctors, though the good news is that HC Marvin Lewis indicated that Green avoided a long-term injury. Mohamed Sanu will be a solid WR3-type play in Green's absence. Brandon Tate and Dane Sanzenbacher will also see increased snaps. It's a downgrade for Andy Dalton, who will be without his primary weapon in the passing game. Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill should see a bump as the Bengals focus on the run game.
