Patriots trading for WR Mohamed Sanu

The Patriots are trading the Falcons for wide receiver Mohamed Sanu in exchange for a second-round draft pick, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday morning.

Related players: Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon, Phillip Dorsett,
Jakobi Meyers, N'Keal Harry, Calvin Ridley, Justin Hardy,
Russell Gage.

Fantasy Impact: 

The Pats have been trying to get Sanu for a while according to various stories. He's a real solid addition to the receiving group, and if anything, it puts a dent in the fantasy value of Dorsett, Meyers and Harry going forward. Sanu had 50 catches and 650 yards receiving each of the last three seasons with 33 catches and 313 yards this season. It's another nice target for Tom Brady.

For the Falcons, it could mean a bump in snaps and production for Ridley who was playing on about 71% this year, while also opening the door for more time for guys like Hardy and Gage who look to be next up on the Falcons depth chart.
