Mohamed Sanu

Wide Receiver • Falcons

2018 Projections

89 60 672 5


Sanu established a career high in receptions last year due in large part to a sterling 69.1 percent catch rate. With a career catch rate of 64.8 percent, Sanu doesnít need a huge target load to make a meaningful contribution -- a good thing since he lines up opposite target hog Julio Jones. A consistent PPR contributor, Sanu had four or more receptions in 10 of his 15 games last season.


With Jones dominating targets, Sanu has to settle for table scraps. The Falcons also added first-round WR Calvin Ridley in the draft, further threatening Sanuís target share. Not much of a TD scorer, Sanu has found the end zone 20 times in six NFL seasons and has never scored more than five touchdowns in a single year. Sanuís yardage per catch has fallen in each of the last three seasons, and he has a career average of 11.3 yards per catch. Sanu will be 29 when the new season begins, so his current level of production is probably as good as it gets

Bottom Line

Sanu has some utility in PPR leagues, but the presence of Julio Jones caps Sanuís upside.
