WR Fantasy Injury Updates -
A.J. Green owners had an unpleasant Wednesday as news came in that Green was carted off the practice field due to an aggravated toe injury. Green is set to have an MRI and it's possible that the Bengals will shut Green down for a few weeks to get him back to 100%.
Green owners looking elsewhere for a replacement might do well to stay with some members of the Bengals receiving corps. Now that Dalton is without Green, the Bengals will likely count on Mohamed Sanu and Marvin Jones to fill the void. Stay tuned to our injury updates on Fantasy Focus for developing news.
Sanu is the second best receiver and fantasy option on the Bengals. Sanu has five catches in two straight games and has three touchdowns in his last four games. Sanu has favorable match-ups the next two weeks against Carolina and Indy and will be the number one receiver in the passing game if Green is out this Sunday or for an extended period of time.
It's certainly possible that A.J. Green owners may have better reciever options than Sanu, but with bye weeks and injuries adding up throughout the league, owners could do much worse than Sanu.
Marvin Jones was on pace to play last Sunday against the Patriots before he suffered a setback with his ailing ankle. There isn't much news on Jones except for the fact that he's questionable for Sunday. Based on the fact that he has been on the NFL injury updates list all season and he's yet to score a fantasy point, Jones isn't worth rostering until he has a few receptions under his belt.
However, fantasy owners can't ignore the fact that Jones hauled in 51 receptions for 712 yards last season to go along with an impressive 10 touchdown catches. Jones may be out this week, but could make a very valuable fantasy stash.
