5. Mohamed Sanu
Good Showing Cut Short: Mohamed Sanu (3 catches, 31 receiving yards: 3.10 points)
Mohamed Sanu was doing some good work in the first half of this game, having catches of 6-yards, 9-yards, and 16-yards, before his day was cut short right before halftime.
The fifth year man out of Rutgers led the team in both catches and receiving yards at halftime, and would have continued being a strong option in the passing game against a porous Saints defense. Unfortunately, a shoulder injury took away that opportunity.
Following the game, head coach Dan Quinn said that the severity of the injury is not yet known.
Analysis: This is a tough pill to swallow for fantasy owners who started Sanu last night, especially after seeing Justin Hardy (who came in to replace him) score a second half touchdown.
The advice here is to obviously monitor the shoulder injury throughout the week. However, even if Sanu is good to go next week, it’s hard to consider him anything more than a WR4 against a strong defense.
