Bengals | Cincy won't change offensive game plan

Thu, 09 Oct 2014 10:20:58 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (toe) may not play in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers, but offensive coordinator Hue Jackson refuses to change the game plan drastically if their receiving star doesn't play. "That's why I never put together a game plan based on one guy," said Jackson. "We're not going to crash our game plan. As a coordinator you just have to adapt. You never know what might happen." WR Mohamed Sanu is tied for the team lead with Green with 17 catches, and WR Dane Sanzenbacher can also be used.

Bengals | Dane Sanzenbacher feeling more comfortable

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 12:05:08 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Dane Sanzenbacher recently said he has a higher comfort level now that he's been with the team for more than a season. "The longer you're there, the more of a comfort level you have," Sanzenbacher said. "It's easier to perform well when you're in a place that you like." Sanzenbacher also said he's been training in Arizona in preparation for training camp in late July.

Fantasy Tip: Sanzenbacher will probably be the team's No. 4 receiver behind A.J. Green, Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu. He will likely play in the slot when he does play, but shouldn't be drafted as of now.

Bengals | Mohamed Sanu misses practice

Tue, 29 Oct 2013 13:15:07 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) missed his second straight day of practice Tuesday, Oct. 29. If he can't play in the team's Week 9 game Thursday, Oct. 31, against the Miami Dolphins, then WR Marvin Jones will replace him in two-receiver sets with WR Dane Sanzenbacher taking some snaps out of the slot position. WR Andrew Hawkins, who's expected to be activated to the active roster before the game, is another option.

Fantasy Tip: Sanu figures to be a weak play coming off injury on a short week. Jones, after his four-touchdown performance last weekend, is likely to be the hottest waiver wire commodity. Jones' snaps have been limited to mostly red zone duties, but he'll see more work if Sanu misses the game.
