Titans | Head coach praises Bishop Sankey

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 18:33:29 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey was praised by head coach Ken Whisenhunt Monday, Oct. 13. The coach said Sankey's nerves were a bit of a factor early in the Week 6 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but that he is getting better and the coaching staff is excited about Sankey.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey has some upside, but he is still not someone to rely upon in fantasy leagues on a week-to-week basis. He is a rookie, and with rookies come some spurts and some growing pains.

Titans | Bishop Sankey ready for bigger role

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 19:05:56 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey is ready for a bigger role in the offense should RB Shonn Greene (hamstring) be unable to suit up in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Tip: The Jaguars rank 22nd against the rush, allowing 126.6 yards per game with four rushing touchdowns allowed. Sankey might be a solid FantasyScore value at $5500 (11.0 percent of the salary cap).

Titans | Bishop Sankey reduced in Week 5

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 07:13:07 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey played just 22 snaps, or 32 percent of the offense, in Week 5. The team previously said they'd use him more, but his utilization numbers continue to fall.

Fantasy Tip: He's still a possibility on FantasyScore in that one prime matchup. Maybe it's in Week 6 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Titans | Bishop Sankey's reps to increase

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 08:40:41 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey is likely to see more work in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns than he has in his first four games, head coach Ken Whisenhunt said on his radio show Tuesday on 104.5 FM The Zone. In the last two weeks, Sankey has been on the field for 22 and 29 snaps, the highest totals of any Titans running back. Whisenhunt again noted that Sankey's footwork has improved.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey was listed in our Week 5 studs report because of his increasing workload and the highly favorable matchup with the Cleveland Browns. His reasonable $5,500 price in FantasyScore (a mere 11.0% of a player's salary cap) says daily gamers should be happy to take the chance on him.

Titans | Bishop Sankey's footwork improving

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 07:34:05 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey's footwork was a little better in Week 4, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey ($5,500; 11% of your cap) has a tough matchup against Cleveland in Week 5. He had a pedestrian 6-34-1 line last week that was salvaged by the score. He's a very low-end flex option this week on FantasyScore.

Titans | Bishop Sankey set for more snaps?

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 18:16:26 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey was on the field for a season-high 27 snaps in Week 3, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt said Sankey's play will dictate his future snap totals. "He's got good vision, and he looks to have good movement skills," Whisenhunt said. "What I didn't like is attention to detail with him. If he can get the attention to detail better, his reps will increase."

Fantasy Tip: Sankey was productive with his increased role in Week 3, and it is only a matter of time before he becomes the main back for the Titans. That being said, Whisenhunt's comments make it clear that Sankey still needs to work on some things before he will take over the lead-back role. Until Sankey is receiving a majority of the carries, he is a risky option at FantasyScore.

Titans | Bishop Sankey's footwork shaky

Tue, 23 Sep 2014 05:19:15 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey's footwork is still an issue of concern to head coach Ken Whisenhunt, despite Sankey's 10-carry, 60-yard performance in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey ($5,000; 10% of your cap) has a poor matchup in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts and is a low-end flex option on FantasyScore. There are better options when Sankey isn't getting many carries, and the Titans could abandon the run early against the high-powered Colts.

Titans | Bishop Sankey improving

Mon, 25 Aug 2014 05:54:40 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey, who has had fumbling issues due to poor footwork before the hand-off, was better in that regard in the third preseason game over the weekend. Sankey had 16 carries for 44 yards in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey has upside as an RB3.

Titans | Bishop Sankey's fumble issues correctable

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 07:30:14 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey is not a fumbler, and his issues are related to footwork and technique, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Fantasy Tip: Good news that they're not overreacting to his recent scuffles. Sankey remains the top option in a likely committee backfield, which still justifies a pick somewhere in Round 4 or 5 as an RB2.

Titans | Bishop Sankey loses fumble

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 21:47:45 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey had six runs for 31 yards in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 15, against the New Orleans Saints, but he also lost a fumble after an issue on the exchange with QB Zach Mettenberger, something which has reportedly been an issue throughout camp.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey is running as the third-team running back behind Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster. He needs to hang onto the ball, and likely needs a long-term injury to either Greene or McCluster, to gain relevance in standard fantasy formats.
