|McCluster has never been able to truly fill the niche role of being a hybrid runner/receiver for the Titans and that isnít likely to change in 2015. The team actually reduced his role in the offense a year ago, which says a lot considering Greene was playing on two bad knees and Sankey was unable to break away from anyone. What is most disturbing is the lack of targets he received in the passing game. After coming off back-to-back 50-reception campaigns, he only was only able to muster 26 in 2014, a far cry from being a PPR flex option during those big mid-season bye weeks. Unless something drastic happens, heíll once again take up permanent residency on the waiver wire this season. Antonio Andrews is a second-year player out of Western Kentucky who spent most of last season on the practice squad. Heís hoping to make a splash in a thin backfield during training camp.
|Sankey "odds-on" favorite to start Week 1|
The Tennessean breaks down the Titans' RB depth chart

|Bishop Sankey is the odds-on favorite to be the starter when the season gets underway, simply because he has a yearís experience and a full offseason under his belt. Assuming thatís the case, who backs him up? Dexter McCluster is a possibility, but heís more of a situational player, not a workhorse. David Cobb is a draft pick and a versatile player, but he also missed much of the offseason with a hamstring injury. Antonio Andrews will as usual be an underdog, but he showed enough promise in the preseason and practices of 2014 that he will be given a good, long look. (Tennessean)|
FFToday's Take: Last season was a massive disappointment for Sankey, who performed well below the standard expected of the first running back drafted in 2014. Tennessee did him no favors either, though, providing him with shoddy run-blocking and pulling him at seemingly every opportunity for McCluster and Shonn Greene. Having a run threat like Marcus Mariota at quarterback and more spread concepts should help Sankey, who thrived in such an offense in college.
