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.

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.

Titans | Bishop Sankey in great shape, focusing mentally

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 14:37:09 -0700

Tennessee Titans rookie RB Bishop Sankey recently said he's in great shape and is reviewing plays every day with running backs coach Sylvester Croom. Sankey believes he can have a big impact once he gets plays down and used to his teammates

Fantasy Tip: Sankey is expected to get the lion's share of playing time with Shonn Greene, Jackie Battle and maybe even Dexter McCluster in the mix. Sankey should be drafted as a low-end RB2 in standard leagues.

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 12:06:20 -0700

Tennessee Titans RB Bishop Sankey's deal is worth $3.8 million, including $1.7 million guaranteed and a $1.1 million signing bonus.

Fantasy Tip: It's a deal fit for a starting rookie running back. Sankey should perform up to RB2 numbers in standard leagues in his rookie season.

Titans | Shonn Greene to be ready for training camp

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.

Titans | Bishop Sankey selected 54th overall

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.

Fantasy Tip: Bishop has all the goods to be a No. 1 running back and could easily morph into that role with the Titans in his first year. He resembles the makeup of Giovani Bernard, which should make him more valuable in PPR leagues.
