Titans | Bishop Sankey likely to start

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 05:17:07 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey is the odds-on favorite to start in Week 1 because he has a year of experience and a full offseason under his belt.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey doesn't have a lot of competition with David Cobb out much of the offseason with a hamstring injury. Dexter McCluster and Antonio Andrews will battle with Cobb for the backup carries. Sankey is a midrange RB3 with room to grow.

Titans | Confidence high for Antonio Andrews

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 20:32:18 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Antonio Andrews feels confident he can crack the roster, and is shooting for a starting tailback job in training camp and the preseason. "I am just going for a starting spot, whether it is Bishop Sankey, Dexter McCluster, David Cobb, Jalston Fowler or Connor Neighbors, I am just trying to be the No. 1 guy," Andrews said.

Fantasy Tip: Andrews was a stud in college fantasy football during his days at Western Kentucky, but the NFL is a whole new ball game and he is competing for touches in a crowded backfield. Perhaps he gets a chance to show what he can do, but for now Fantasy players should only monitor his progress. It is premature to add him to cheat sheets at this juncture, as everyone is confident heading into a new year.

Titans | Bishop Sankey happy with more OTAs

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 15:11:27 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey believes participating in more organized team activities this offseason has helped him a lot. Sankey missed most of last year's OTAs due to PAC-12 school rules. "I've been able to kind of start from scratch," Sankey said. "I definitely feel more comfortable with pass protection, initial reads with running plays and everything."

Fantasy Tip: Sankey is expected to start in front of Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster despite a disappointing 2014 rookie campaign. He's had a good offseason so far and is more comfortable with the offense, so things are looking up for Sankey in his sophomore season. He should be drafted as a RB4 with low-end RB3 upside.

Titans | Bishop Sankey impressive

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 11:29:32 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey has looked impressive during non-contact drills this offseason, in the opinion of The Tennessean's Jim Wyatt. Sankey did not participate in offseason workouts last year because of school commitments.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey likely will share some of his carries with the other running backs on the roster but should see a majority of the carries during the season. Sankey could be an option in the middle rounds of draft probably should not be seen as a weekly starting option.

Titans | Bishop Sankey asked to add weight

Wed, 27 May 2015 18:59:38 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey has been asked by the team to add some weight this offseason, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt. The team would like him to be around 215 to 220 pounds. Whisenhunt said he would also like Sankey to have a full grasp of the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey rushed for 569 yards and only two touchdowns last season but should see most of the carries this upcoming season. Sankey could be an option in the middle rounds of drafts this season but may not be an every-week starting option.

Titans | Shonn Greene featured in Week 15

Mon, 15 Dec 2014 07:44:11 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene had a season-high 16 carries for 50 yards Sunday, Dec. 14. Greene had 16 carries in the previous five games combined. RB Bishop Sankey had just three carries for eight yards.

Fantasy Tip: We still expect Sankey to see considerable work in the final two games, but he's not a sure thing on FantasyScore.

Titans | O-line holding back Bishop Sankey?

Tue, 11 Nov 2014 09:00:25 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey currently ranks fifth among rookie running backs this year with 360 yards, and he's averaging 3.9 yards per carry, and he has just one carry longer than 20 yards in 92 chances. He had 38 yards on his first nine carries in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens, but produced just 20 yards on his final eight carries. Head coach Ken Whisenhunt said the offensive line needs to do a better job of opening up holes for the rookie running back. The team is choosing to use RB Leon Washington in third down situations. "I think Bishop will still get a chance to protect and to catch passes on first and second down," Whisenhunt said. "But one of the things you try to be consistent with is the protection and working together with those things on third down."

Fantasy Tip: Sankey is waiting for his breakout game, and it could come in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night. However, the O-line must improve, and the rookie is more of a flex option for your FantasyScore lineups.

Titans | Bishop Sankey does not seize chance

Wed, 05 Nov 2014 20:05:40 -0800

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey carried 43 times for 152 yards, a 3.5-yard average, when RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) was inactive for two games and limited to two snaps in a third outing. In games Sankey shared the load with Greene, the rookie Sankey averaged 4.7 yards per carry.

Fantasy Tip: At $3,600 (or 7.2 percent of the cap), Sankey is a decent low-end RB2 or flex play to save salary at other spots. He is expected to get a majority of the totes for the Titans for now.
