Bengals WR Mohamed Sanu expected to start

Mohamed Sanu @Mo_12_Sanu and Marvin Jones @MarvinJonesJr are the top candidates to become the Bengals' second wide receiver this season with A.J. Green holding down the No. 1 spot, and Andrew Hawkins @YoungBabyHawk lining up in the slot. Sanu and Jones will prove who is more deserving in training camp, but if we're making guesses in June, Sanu has the edge, according to ESPN's AFC North blogger, Jamison Hensley.
Sanu caught 16 passes for 154 yards and four touchdowns last season as a rookie before breaking his foot Nov. 30.

Fantasy Analysis:

Sanu said back in April that his foot is 100 percent. Sanu and Jones are probably pretty equal heading into camp, and I don't have a lot to point to in support of one player over another. But I keep reminding myself of that three-week stretch last season in which Sanu scored four touchdowns, and it definitely has me in his corner. I selected Sanu in the 17th round of a 12-team draft on Tuesday, and getting any starting WR that late in a PPR draft is pretty swell.

I think that Sanu wins this starting job. The two are fairly similar as receivers, but Sanu has the edge because he can do other things. He played QB in high school, and he showed he can throw with his TD pass in week 3.
