Titans | More on Bishop Sankey's progress

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 10:17:30 -0700

Updating previous reports, Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey has impressed his coaches with improvement this preseason. "I think Bishop made significant improvement last week in practices as far as getting downhill and hitting the hole and it showed up in the game," running backs coach Sylvester Croom said. "That is something he has to continue to work on. I think from the first game to the last game his improvement was significant, and he played with a lot of confidence. He has to continue to work on that where it is consistently done that way. Pass protection, assignment-wise, he is doing a good job, but we still have to improve on technique. He needs to make the running style consistent."

Fantasy Tip: Sankey in on the bubble of the RB2/RB3 range but appears to be in good shape with David Cobb (calf) struggling to stay on the field.

Titans | Bishop Sankey showing improvement

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 10:16:01 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey had 45 yards on six carries in the team's second preseason game against the St. Louis Rams, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt saw improvement from Sankey from the first week of the preseason. Sankey had just 15 yards on eight carries in Week 1 of the preseason against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Sankey's improvement will be enough to hold off impressive rookie David Cobb, who appears to be in line for the majority of work in the backfield. Even if Cobb wins the starting job, Sankey could see meaningful repetitions and be valuable for running back depth in deeper fantasy leagues as a handcuff to Cobb.

Titans | Bishop Sankey solid Sunday

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 20:22:22 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey had six carries for 45 yards in a preseason game against the St. Louis Rams Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: After struggling in the first preseason game, Sankey found some running against the Rams. He should open the year as the starter, but David Cobb figures to cut into his carries. Consider Sankey a low-end RB3.

Titans | David Cobb to overtake Bishop Sankey?

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 11:59:58 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB David Cobb could end up with more carries than RB Bishop Sankey by the end of the season, according to Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: This, of course, remains to be seen, but Sankey is expected to start at the beginning of the season. Sankey doesn't seem like the type of running back that will run away with a starting gig. Cobb should see a fair amount of opportunities. He's a prospective low-end RB3 or high-end RB4 if he can get enough touches.

Titans | Line to blame for Bishop Sankey's play?

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 18:04:18 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey averaged just 1.9 yards per carry on eight rushing attempts in a preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Friday, Aug. 14, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt said some of Sankey's issues could be blamed on the play of the offensive line.

Fantasy Tip: While Sankey received support from his coach, RB David Cobb had no trouble running wild in the same game. If Sankey doesn't start fast in 2015, don't be surprised if Cobb starts to steal carries. For now, consider Sankey a mid-range RB3.

Titans | Marcus Mariota runs option play

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 17:54:15 -0700

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota ran an option-based play during practice Sunday, Aug. 16. Operating out of shotgun, Mariota faked a handoff to RB Bishop Sankey before sprinting to the left and throwing a slightly forward pass to WR Harry Douglas.

Fantasy Tip: The coaching staff has said it plans to install some plays that take advantage of Mariota's running ability, but despite the added dynamic, he should still be viewed as a low-end QB2 this season.

Titans | Bishop Sankey leading the backfield

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 05:58:57 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey has received the most first-team repetitions in training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey fell flat last season but enters 2015 as a midrange RB3. His stock could continue to grow with a strong preseason because he looks like he has the lead role.

Titans | Committee to be used in TEN?

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 13:37:22 -0700

Tennessee Titans RBs Bishop Sankey and David Cobb could lead a running back by committee this season, according to ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky. RBs Antonio Andrews and Dexter McCluster would also be in the mix.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey should still see the majority of playing time out of the backfield to start the season, but the Titans do have a few capable running backs at their disposal. Cobb and Andrews are nice sleepers, but shouldn't be drafted until later rounds. Sankey should be viewed as no more than a RB3.

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.
