Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu (shoulder) returned to practice on Wednesday but is only a game-time decision for the team's Thursday night game against the Miami Dolphins, according to Bengals beat writer Joe Reedy. Teammate Marvin Jones is expected to see an increase in snaps should Sanu not be able to play.
Fantasy impact: The truth of the matter is there is almost no way that the Bengals coaching staff can turn its eyes away from Jones after what he accomplished against the New York Jets in Week 8. Jones caught every pass that quarterback Andy Dalton threw his way in the contest and finished with eight catches for 122 yards and four touchdowns.
Even if Sanu plays on Thursday, it is likely that Jones will see an increase in snaps. The latter has now caught touchdown passes in three straight games and seen his targets steadily increasing.
Jones has to be hands down the most added player on the waiver wire after Week 8. By contrast, Sanu has yet to score a touchdown so far this season.
Jones is probably a safer bet to start against the Dolphins given his play of late, especially when you consider Sanu's iffy status for the game.
