Yeah, you feel that motion going on in the way back machine? Yeah, the New Zoo Revue has never gotten any pub in the Razzball neck of the nape.  It should.  It has really trippy characters in over-sized sock puppy looking costumes and a really cute host. And when I say cute, I mean in a boots are made for walking kinda way.  So this week’s play on words, I mean spotlight, is on the Mohamed Sanu.  The surprising fact about Sanu is that he’s owned in only 40% of Yahoo leagues, the leagues where we all reside for RCL’s.  I get that he’s the second, or third, or maybe even third fiddle there, but that’s why you come here.  (To hear argumentative thoughts and banter from a bear with a gold chain, that may or may not have prevented anything, let alone a forest fire.)  So why am I going with the Henrietta Hippo of the Cincinnati Bengals this week?  The reasons are multifaceted, multi-syllabic and multiplicated… Okay, I ran out of vocabulary points for the last one, but you get the gist.  So stick around to pick up what I am trying to put down, just don’t mess up my breadcrumb trail, because I need those to get out of here.

Mohamed Sanu | FindTheBest

So this week, Sanu goes up against a bend-but-don’t-break DST in the Panthers.  They have allowed either 280 yards passing or 2 TD’s in every game this year.  That’s not awesome, nor is it spectacular.  It’s like getting a cold sore from Emily Ratajkowski.  So with you on that mind set and Googling naked pics of the previously mentioned hottie, think about this alternative.  A.J. Green is toeing the line literally this week as a doubtful play, as he was taken off the practice field on a cart due to a re-injury of his toe.  So what does this mean?  It means that Sanu jumps up to the head of the class to kiss Howard Hessman’s butt.  Interesting side note, he was Dr. Johnny Fever on WKRP in, you guessed it, Cincinnati.  I just wrote that… and my head just blew up.  The irony in that makes me wanna name Mohamed “the Doctor” this week.  The doctor of what?  Who knows.  What’s the fastest doctorate you can obtain in less than three days?  Love… eh, maybe.  How about a WR 1 option for the ‘Slinging Ginga’?  I like it, and that’s the play for this week. He is the Dr. Bunson Honeydew to Andy Dalton’s Beeker.  So what can we expect this week out of the duo as they welcome the Panthers to the Jungle in the battle of cats?

So, Sanu has been helped scoring wise by the touchdown he threw a few weeks back, but still manages to outscore guys you drafted way higher.  I am looking at you Victor, Pierre, Cordarrelle, Andre, Crabtree, Keenan, Marques.  You get the drift now.  He is criminally under-owned and by the time this post goes up, most or all waivers should have gone off, and with my expertise, I expect his owned percentage to rocket up to 41%, because no one listens to people from New Jersey. [Jay’s Note: There’s a reason for that.]  They just don’t, unless we gesticulate with our hands and say something cliche.  Actually, I take that back people, listen to Uncle Floyd, don’t know him? Google it!  So if/when A.J Green can’t go this week, Sanu is a must-start.  He becomes a big target for Dalton, and a compliment to the running game, which should be utilized a lot this week.  So Sanu and all his Rutgers swag is going to put up some decent numbers, not Flipper Anderson type stuff, but startable WR2 production.

Smokey’s prediction 11 targets 7 rec 86 Yds and 1TD

    Hey Smokey, Sanu is available in my 10team (NON PPR) league. My roster looks like this (with the trade mentioned below, to be completed Sunday morning)

    QB-Rodgers
    WR-Cobb, Edelman, Cruz/A. Johnson (received both guys via trade for Wallace), Beckham
    RB- Murray, R Jennings, A Williams, Matthews, Asiata, McKinnon, Ingram
    TE-Witten
    K-Dawson
    D-Lions

    Do you drop anyone from my roster to grab Sanu? My trade will go through on Sunday morning (so I will be able to start Cruz while A Johnson plays Thursday but I wouldn’t start him with a Q tag anyways)

    Also, at my flex spot this week, would you go with OD Beckham or a terrible matchup for Asiata? If I grabbed Sanu, I assume he would flex over both those guys….

      @Nick: I mean Sanu needs to be grabbed but I just don’t see a drop there besides Asiata, because in a real scenario he never plays for you. Ingram is back and he has the nod from me over him Williams better play this week. Murray plays always. Cobb Edekman and Cruz arent awful Flex guys, and I would start Sanu over Cruz this week. Hope that all makes sense to pick him up

      • Nick says:

        @Smokey: Well Ingram will not be playing this week as their on bye…so that leaves me with Murray & Williams at RB, Cobb, Edelman & Sanu at WR…and at flex? Go with Cruz or Beckham?

          Smokey says:

          @Nick: so starters would be
          Rodgers
          Cobb,Edelman, Sanu
          Murray, Williams
          Cruz
          K
          Def

          Looks pretty decent to me.

    I’m sorry. I totally missed everything in the article after you said “Emily Ratajkowski.” We’re talking what sport again?

    I picked up Sanu a couple of weeks ago just based on him being the number 2 WR in a high power offense but have yet to use him. This week my lineup for WR and Flex is:

    WR 1 – Julio Jones
    WR 2 – T.Y. Hilton
    Flex – Branden Oliver

    Julio stays but would you switch either of the other 2? T.Y. against Houston’s secondary seems like the better match up for WR and Oliver going against Oakland seems like the smart play. Am I missing something?

      @Shon: nope you good. Have Hilton just ahead of Sanu by 7 spots.

    Thanks. Picked up Sanu this morning, trying to figure it where he fits. Need two of these for the week: Cruz, A Johnson, Sanu, Vereen, Hillman.

    • Smokey

      @malen: maybe I’m crazy but vereen is bound to break out on a week we don’t expect it. So Sanu and Vereen for me. I’m starting Vereen in a couple so fingers crossed for us both.

    Hey smokey!

    Defense Q,
    Rams (Vs niners)

    Philly (Vs Giants but I start Eli)

    Giants (@ philly)

    Packers (@ Miami)

    Vikings sound inticing too me especially if Megatron sits & looks like bush is banged up. Yeah they still have other players but taking megatron out must help Minnesota.

    Titans vs Jags; only thing it seems Tennesee isn’t good vs the run tate had a big week last week

    Jags @ Tennesee jags aren’t good at all but maybe they get some sacks & maybe for once they are dominate

        @Smokey:

        Gracias! PS- would you put a waiver claim in for jordan Reed? Someone dropped him & hell clear waivers tomowrow AM; my TE is Ertz & he has a bye next week. Or just wait Til next week & pick a TE up next week?

        Besides Reed here are the available TE’s; jace Amaro, gresham, garrett Graham, niles paul, Ladarius green , & Charles clay.
