|The Titans finished the 2014 regular season ranked 26th in rushing yards per game. Although a rookie, Bishop Sankey struggled to be the focal point in the running game so much so that he never rushed for more than 61 yards in any game. Sankey finds himself atop the depth chart entering the year, and the pressure to perform is already mounting. The good news is he has the talent to succeed and make fantasy owners forget his 2014 campaign. Optimistic owners will gamble on improved patience, better blocking and more use of his receiving skills working alongside a new quarterback to regain his fantasy appeal. If Sankey does not fly out of the gates to open the season, he wonít have to look too far over his shoulder. The teamís choice to draft David Cobb was not only made to add a complementary runner to the fold, but also because the coaching staff is hedging their bets on whether Sankey can be the lead back moving forward. For now, Sankey remains the lead option in the Titansí RBBC approach and a RB4 or flex option for fantasy purposes depending on the depth of your league.
|Antonio Andrews tabbed as Titans' workhorse RB|
Sankey and McCluster relegated to backup roles

|Tennessee Titans interim head coach Mike Mularkey said Tuesday the team will be giving the bulk of carries at running back to second-year player Antonio Andrews, beginning with Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. The decision to identify Andrews as the starter differs from the "running back by committee' approach the team took under former head coach Ken Whisenhunt. Andrews, Bishop Sankey and Dexter McCluster have all seen time as Tennessee's main back this season. (Fox Sports)|
FFToday's Take: Andrews is available on most waiver wires, and while the Titans' running game has been anemic thus far, the second-year RB is likely to get 15 carries this week against a porous Saints' defense.
