Mohamed Sanu Fantasy Matchup Points to Solid Week 6 Game Against Cardinals

Opposing passing attacks have been torching the Arizona Cardinals' secondary all season, as they've given up the ninth-most passing yards per game (269.2) thus far.

That deficiency could get exposed once again in Week 6, as the high-flying Atlanta Falcons' passing attack comes to town Sunday. One player that particularly stands to benefit is Falcons' wide receiver Mohamed Sanu.

Sanu has quietly been really effective this season, seeing an average of 7.7 targets that he's turned into 6.7 receptions and 69.3 yards over the past three weeks. The Falcons' wide receiver is WR17 in PPR leagues during that span.

He's only found the end zone once this season (Week 5), but against a Cardinals' defense currently surrendering the fifth-most points per game (PPG) in the NFL, Sanu could have plenty of scoring opportunities here.

Sanu has seen a 17 percent target share over the past two weeks, which is a slight uptick from the 15 percent he saw over the first three weeks. If he continues to get more involved in the offense, he has a chance at another solid outing in Week 6.
