Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey (stinger) suffered a stinger in Week 12 and did not suffer a concussion, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to watch to see if he is able to practice this week. Sankey probably is not an every-week starting option but could be a useful player against certain teams.

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.

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.
