Bengals beat writer Paul Dehner: For second straight 11-on-11 Marvin Jones running with the first team on outside. Mohamed Sanu enters in slot at three-wide. First time this year.
Jones was one of our favorite sleepers last summer, but his season was derailed by an ankle injury. His 51 catches for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns resulted in the 3rd-highest FP/T in 2013. He’s poised to surprise if he can prove he’s fully healthy and win the starting job opposite A.J. Green. Mohamed Sanu played pretty well last season but he struggled with drops, and Jones was ahead of Sanu when disaster struck. Both players are free agents after the season, so this is one of the more interesting camp battles to monitor this summer. One thing to note -- Sanu only saw 5.2 targets in the 12 games in which Green played, so Cincinnati’s WR2 it wasn’t a high-volume role in OC Hue Jackson’s run-oriented offense, but Jackson said that he is planning to open things up a bit in 2015.

Mohamed Sanu had 103 catches over the past two seasons and put together some big games for the Bengals. Sanu teased fantasy owners with two 100-plus yard receiving games in a three week stretch during the middle of the last season, but quickly came back down to Earth.
Marvin Jones is healthy, which relegates Sanu back to the third WR spot. He will have problems replicating his recent numbers (which were average, at best). The Bengals are more of a running team, so there just aren't enough balls to go around when they do pass and most of those opportunities go to A.J. Green anyway.
Sanu is not a good option because of who he plays for, but mostly because of the limited amount of snaps he will see. Unless someone ahead of him gets hurt, he is only good in deep leagues where you have six or seven receivers on your roster.
