His four-for-68 line came after catching just five balls for 40 yards in Week 2 vs Pittsburgh, but he has been targeted 13 times in the past two games, and the Bengals are clearly trying to feature him the offense more.

Sanu has been regarded as the Bengals most promising WR prospect (not named A.J. Green) since they drafted him out of Rutgers last year, and teams starting to respect the two-tight end looks the Bengals utilize with Jermaine Gresham and Tyler Eifert, Sanu could soon become a legitimate No. 2 receiver, as well as someone you might want to look at in fantasy football.

And you can’t forget about his midseason explosion last year. In the final three games that Sanu played prior to his season-ending foot injury, Sanu caught 11 passes, four of which were touchdowns.
