|Forced into the No.2 receiver role because of the season ending injury to Marvin Jones, the former Rutgers standout set career highs in catches (57), yards (790) and touchdowns (5). And while he technically finished as a low-end WR3, most of Sanuís yearly value came in a total of five games where he totaled nearly 63 percent of his season yardage total and scored four of his five touchdowns (Coincidently those were games missed by A.J. Green, leaving Sanu as the de-facto receiving threat.) Outside of those five games, and especially down the stretch, Sanu barely registered a blip on the fantasy radar. An inability to get open against quicker, and more physical defenders, and plagued by a league leading 14 dropped passes, Sanu will find it nearly impossible to be fantasy relevant with the return of Marvin Jones and Tyler Eifert. Sanu will probably be relegated to the No.5 passing option at best, and that simply isnít enough volume to give him much fantasy value.
| Tyler Eifert misses practice Thursday|

|For the second consecutive day on Thursday, tight end Tyler Eifert and cornerback Adam Jones missed practice. Traditionally under Marvin Lewis, any player missing the two most laborious practices of the week won't play Sunday. (Cincinnati.com)|
FFToday's Take: The Bengals tight end suffered a neck stinger in last week's game and looks very shaky to play in Week 13. Tyler Kroft would fill in at TE if Eifert doesn't play but won't be a recommended fantasy option. Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu would likely see an increase in target if Eifert sits.
