Expert Picks

From CBS Sports:

The Browns should be forever thankful they got a bye week before this matchup, and it's still hard to write them off completely. But goodness, how in the world can anyone take Baker Mayfield -- behind that line -- against this Pats team right now?

Fantasy Football Beat: Should you play Mohamed Sanu in Patriots debut?

From NBC Sports Boston:

The Next Gen Stats said coming into the season that Sanu was the fourth-best receiver in the league in getting separation against press coverage since 2016. Plus, there's always the chance the Patriots use Sanu's arm to their advantage. According to NFL Research, the former high school quarterback has 27.0 air yards on his eight pass attempts since 2012, and he's three-for-three for 174 yards and two scores on passes that travel more than 40 yards in the air. Is it likely? No. They just want to get him up to speed on the game plan, and they have very little time to do it. Wednesday wasn't a true practice so much as it was a walkthrough.

But there's potential there for you if you're in dire need of a wideout while better options are hurt or on a bye. What I would do? Bench him for this week if you can afford to. Wait it out. Wait for Brady and the Patriots to get past Myles Garrett and a Browns front that could create some issues. But be aggressive if Sanu is on another roster in your league right now. Go trade for him. Because he's in an offense that peppers the slot. And by the time the fantasy season stretch run arrives, he could be one of Brady's favorite targets.
