2014 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Titans made Bishop Sankey the first running back chosen in the 2014 draft and it is clear that they feel he has the ability to replace Chris Johnson. They might not elevate him to the top of the depth chart at the outset of training camp because of his status as a rookie, but he should be their number one guy by Week One of the regular season. Part of this is due to the lack of quality competition to handle anything close to a full workload of carries. Shonn Greene continues to deal with knee problems and has seen his role reduced. Jackie Battle provides depth and could be moved to fullback while other players like Dexter McCluster are complementary pieces within the offense. Meanwhile Sankey has the skills to develop into a very good three-down running back within a balanced offense geared to move the chains. His solid hands will also make him a nice safety valve for Jake Locker and PPR owners. Whether Sankey can become the next stalwart rookie fantasy back will depend on his durability and ability to adjust to the pro game as a runner and blocker. He has shown that he can handle a larger workload as a two-year starter for Washington yet the possibility of hitting a “rookie wall” remains. Potential Sankey investors will want to follow his preseason progress very closely to see whether the same exceptional vision that he displayed in college will not be negated by the quicker NFL defenses.

Comment: The rookie has a clear line to the starting job and a run-first approach in Tennessee. The opportunity doesn't get much better.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Shonn Greene Doubtful, hamstring
Bishop Sankey expected to start at running back
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 17, 1:15 pm

Tennessee Titans
Titans running back Shonn Greene (hamstring), tight end Taylor Thompson (knee) and cornerback Coty Sensabaugh (knee) all missed practice again on Friday and none of the three is expected to play on Sunday against the Redskins. All three are listed on the team's Injury report as doubtful. (The Tennessean)

FFToday's Take: Greene's absence means Bishop Sankey is likely get the start again at running back and receive the bulk of the carries in Week 7. He's an RB2 or Flex play against the Redskins defense that only gives up 12.4 fantasy points to running backs.

Sankey elevated to No. 2 on Titans depth chart
Rookie still behind Greene, but ahead of McCluster
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Sep 2, 11:59 am

Tennessee Titans
Rookie running back Bishop Sankey is now the No. 2 running back, still behind Shonn Greene but now ahead of Dexter McCluster. All three will be part of the rotation and game plans and matchups will do a lot to dictate their usage. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: It's too early to say who will end up getting the bulk of carries this season, because Snakey is the more dynamic back but Greene is an experienced plodder who knows the offense. Sankey still has more upside, but Greene could end up surprising this season with decent numbers.
