Mohamed Sanu signs with 49ers

WR Mohamed Sanu signed a one-year deal with the 49ers.

Fantasy Impact

Sanu was with San Francisco in 2020 before getting cut. He ended the season in Detroit, but will return to the 49ers to serve as receiver depth. He won't be a fantasy factor to begin the year.

Mohamed Sanu totals 38 yards in Week 15 loss

Mohamed Sanu brought in four of five targets for 38 yards in the Lions’ 46-25 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

This type of stat line is the norm for Sanu, and he doesn't offer much upside in Detroit's passing attack. Fantasy managers who roll with him have to bank on a TD, but he hasn't been a prolific scorer since suiting up for the Lions.

Mohamed Sanu racks up 37 yards in Week 14 loss

Mohamed Sanu corralled both of his targets for 37 yards in the Lions’ 31-24 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Sanu has played a minimal role since joining the Lions’ active roster, and even with Kenny Golladay out indefinitely, the former isn’t an exciting fantasy option. He’ll score the occasional touchdown, but otherwise, he’s not posting fantasy-relevant numbers.

Mohamed Sanu finds end zone in Thursday's loss

Mohamed Sanu brought in all four of his targets for 32 yards and a TD in the Lions’ 41-25 loss to the Texans on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Just a day after being signed to the active roster, Sanu became the recipient of Matthew Stafford's 18th career Thanksgiving touchdown pass and his only one of the afternoon. He capped off that same drive with a two-point conversion to complete the octopus. Given his history and production in the NFL, it's possible Sanu retains a role among Detroit's top-three wideouts when Kenny Golladay returns.

Mohamed Sanu signed to the Lions’ active roster

Lions WR Mohamed Sanu has been signed to the Detroit Lions’ active roster for the remainder of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Sanu played in Week 11, but was reverted back to the practice squad on Monday. On Wednesday, the Lions signed him to the active roster for the remainder of the season. He’ll be available to play in Week 12 on Thanksgiving day against the Texans.
