All The Balls

I'll write about most sports, hence I'll write about "all the balls" that are used on fields and courts.

The Colorado Buffaloes went into Eugene and went home with a 41-38 upset win over the Oregon Ducks. For the decisive touchdown, junior wide receiver Bryce Bobo made a highlight-reel catch.

Minnesota's Tai'yon Devers had a bead on Colorado State quarterback Collin Hill Saturday afternoon, and the resulting hit that forced a fumble also provided an unforgettable image.

Mohamed Sanu's first game as an Atlanta Falcon could not have gone a whole lot better, with five receptions (on eight targets) for 80 yards with a touchdown and a two-point conversion against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Week 2 was not a great follow-up, with just three catches for 19 yards against the Oakland Raiders, but an ankle issue may have been limiting him.

Sanu was limited throughout this week of practice with that ankle injury, but he was not on Atlanta's injury report ahead of Monday night's game against the New Orleans Saints. Julio Jones is dealing with ankle and calf issues that has him listed as questionable for Monday night, but all indications are Atlanta's No. 1 wide receiver will be good to go against the Saints. But that does not mean Sanu will have a shortage of opportunities to produce.

Through two games this year, the Saints have allowed 29 fantasy points per game (ESPN standard scoring; tied for fourth-most) to opposing wide receivers. That includes the second-most receiving yards to the position thus far (537), and now New Orleans will be down another cornerback with P.J. Williams suffering a concussion last week. Top cornerback Delvin Breaux suffered a broken leg in Week 1 and he obviously remains out this week. For Monday night's game, the Saints' top four cornerbacks are slated to be Sterling Moore, Ken Crawley, De'Vante Harris and B.W. Webb. A three-safety look, which was used in Week 2 against the New York Giants, is unlikely to hold down the Falcons' No. 1-ranked pass offense Monday night.

Sanu was a popular addition for fantasy owners after his Week 1 performance, and with a slight correction this week he is fairly widely available in Yahoo! (55 percent owned) and ESPN leagues (61.1 percent owned). If you're facing some injury issues at wide receiver (Donte Moncrief, Corey Coleman, Alshon Jeffery? etc.), Sanu is a solid add and an excellent plug-and-play WR2/WR3 for Week 3.
