Titans | Bishop Sankey earning praise

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 18:24:56 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey earned praise from head coach Ken Whisenhunt for his quick cuts and willingness to lower his shoulder during practice Tuesday, July 29. Whisenhunt also said that Sankey was drafted in part because he is a good fit for the offensive system.

Fantasy Tip: Sankey can do it all out of the backfield, and he should be the team's top back this season. He is worth drafting as a low-end RB2 in standard formats with more value in PPR formats.

Titans | Shonn Greene good to go

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 09:52:01 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) is ready for training camp after missing time in the offseason due to a right knee injury, according to head coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Fantasy Tip: A healthy Greene would be a part of an expected split in the backfield that'll also include rookie Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster. Greene is boring but could be serviceable in short-yardage situations, which makes him a fantasy RB5 at least. Sankey has the best chance to stake a claim to the No. 1 spot, which could help decrease his price to a reasonable RB3 in drafts. McCluster could be a surprisingly effective PPR depth grab.

Titans | Bishop Sankey improving

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 15:35:27 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey admitted he's still learning the offense and knows there is room for improvement. Sankey wants to run more detailed routes, know where the yard-lines are, where to take his breaks and work on his pass protection, among other things.

Fantasy Tip: It's to be expected that Sankey still has work to do. The rookie is expected to be the Titans' main running back and should be considered a low-end RB2 in standard leagues.

Mon, 12 May 2014 10:16:34 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Shonn Greene (knee) is expected to be ready for training camp this summer after recently having right knee surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Assuming Greene is healthy entering the regular season, he should receive the majority of carries in this backfield, but it remains to be seen how they'll use Dexter McCluster, and rook Bishop Sankey has the goods to eventually become the main back in Tennessee.

Fri, 09 May 2014 17:45:32 -0700

The Tennessee Titans selected Washington RB Bishop Sankey with the 54th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
