Titans | More time for Bishop Sankey, David Cobb

Mon, 23 Nov 2015 10:09:07 -0800

Tennessee Titans RBs Bishop Sankey and David Cobb should receive more playing time with RB Dexter McCluster (knee) sidelined for a few weeks, according to interim head coach Mike Mularkey.

Fantasy Tip: Cobb may receive more of a chance since he has played in the last few games with Sankey not being used in the last few games. Antonio Andrews should still receive a majority of the carries and may be the only running back worth starting in fantasy leagues.

Titans | Bishop Sankey might be inactive

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 22:52:37 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey might be inactive in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers following the activation of RB David Cobb (calf) from the Reserve/Injured Designated to Return list, head coach Mike Mularkey indicated Wednesday, Nov. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey was a second-round pick in 2014, but it is looking more and more like he isn't going to be in the team's immediate plans. David Cobb ($3,700, 7.4% of cap), Antonio Andrews ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) and Dexter McCluster ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) are each ahead of Sankey on the depth chart.

Titans | David Cobb's workload unknown

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 15:49:14 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB David Cobb (calf) was activated from the short-term Reserve/Injured list this week, but interim head coach Mike Mularkey is unsure how much Cobb might play moving forward. Cobb has battled weight issues recently, but he said that he's down to 225 pounds. With Cobb back on the roster, Mularkey left open the possibility that RB Bishop Sankey could be inactive in Week 10 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: The Panthers have a stingy defensive front against running backs, so this certainly isn't the matchup to play Cobb ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) in, especially since his touches will likely be limited. Remember that it's his rookie season, too, so it may prove tough for him to get it going for fantasy owners, but he's certainly worth stashing in traditional fantasy leagues.

Titans | Bishop Sankey doesn't play

Mon, 09 Nov 2015 07:32:01 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey didn't play any offensive snaps Sunday, Nov. 8, in Week 9. RB Antonio Andrews played 45 snaps, and RB Dexter McCluster played 29 snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey can be dropped in all but dynasty formats right now with Antonio Andrews clearly the leader of the backfield.

Titans | Bishop Sankey losing playing time

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 13:55:00 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey did not get a carry for the second week in a row and fumbled a kickoff return during his team's 20-6 loss to the Houston Texans. He was replaced on returns by RB Dexter McCluster.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) had a promising start to his career in the NFL but it has since become mired in mistakes. As of now, he has little FantasyScore value until his role changes.

Titans | Antonio Andrews appears the lead back

Thu, 29 Oct 2015 09:15:48 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Antonio Andrews appears to have switched roles with RB Bishop Sankey after Sankey didn't receive a carry in Week 7, according to The Tennessean's John Glennon. Andrews appears to be in line for more carries in Week 8 after rushing 10 times for 57 yards last week.

Fantasy Tip: Andrews ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has a decent draw against the Houston Texans this week and is a speculative flex play on FantasyScore.

Titans | Tennessee improving screen game

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 10:18:59 -0700

The Tennessee Titans are a team that has become more effective running screen plays to running backs. RBs Bishop Sankey and Antonio Andrews both gained nice yardage and first downs on screen plays in Week 5 against the Buffalo Bills. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt is trying to incorporate more screen plays in the offense this year. Sankey can excel on screen plays, and the Titans could use more of them against teams with aggressive defenses.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Andrews ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) can both benefit from more screen plays in the offense. However, their Week 6 opponent, the Miami Dolphins, have allowed a league-low eight catches to runners all year, but they've also played one fewer game. Andrews is the much better FantasyScore choice in PPR formats as a sleeper.

Titans | Tennessee RBs do very little in loss

Sun, 11 Oct 2015 17:17:54 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Dexter McCluster rushed eight times for 20 yards in the Week 5 loss against the Buffalo Bills. RB Antonio Andrews rushed seven times for just nine yards, but he had a touchdown while added three catches for a team-high 45 yards. RB Bishop Sankey also ran seven times for 20 yards with three grabs for 23 yards.

Fantasy Tip: A three-headed running back monster is frustrating for FantasyScore players, especially since the trio had generally the same amount of touches. Andrews ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), McCluster ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) and Sankey ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) should be avoided until one is given more of a primary role.

Titans | Bishop Sankey plays sparingly

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 20:00:18 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey had five carries for 10 yards and two catches for 31 yards in a 35-33 loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey's ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) role in the offense is a major question mark right now. Dexter McCluster ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) and Antonio Andrews ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) are both taking away touches, and it is hard to recommend Sankey at FantasyScore given the current state of the Tennessee backfield.
