NEWS: Bishop Sankey to be the lead back in Week 6; Joique Bell, Branden Oliver & Storm Johnson are sneaky plays.

SMITTY: ESPN is reporting that Bishop Sankey will likely lead the team in touches this week with Greene out. We agree, and he is one of our sneaky starts of the week, as most that own him have been putting him on the bench due to lack of touches. There is always risk with these kinds of plays, but Sankeky, Joique Bell, Branden Oliver and Storm Johnson all look like those sneaky-type starts this week. Looking for Week 6 Power Rankings?

NEWS: Bishop Sankey set to get starter carries in 2014?

According to titansonline, Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt had this to say on the preseason performances of Bishop Sankey: “I think that it was obvious that he’s a talented young man. He ran the ball very well last night, very decisive, made good cuts. We’ve seen growth from him, as well. I think, just like with Zach (Mettenberger), we’ve seen growth with Bishop (Sankey). He’s gotten better, obviously, at his exchanges with the quarterbacks. His course on his footwork has improved. His vision is good. He’s seeing the holes well. His protection, he’s done a nicer job with that as he’s gone through it, so from a young guy that you’re trying to get prepared to contribute during the season, you’ve seen growth, you’ve seen him moving along with that, and that’s what you needed to see. I’m happy with him.”

SMITTY: It really is tough speculating how much work Bishop Sankey is going to get in 2014. Will he get starter-type carries, or will be be used far less than his optimistic owners are hoping? I’d be lying if I said I was super confident that Tennessee will use him like a feature back. I won’t bet against him, I think he is very talented, but it’s in the hands of that unpredictable Titans’ coaching staff. The good news is that Shonn Greene won’t be that hard to separate from.

NEWS: Bishop Sankey impressed coaches in preseason opener.

According to tennessean.com, Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said that RB Bishop Sankey got his attention during the team’s preseason opener.

SMITTY: Bishop Sankey was impressive in his debut, totaling 75 yards on 13 touches. While Shonn Greene is expected to be the goal line back, don’t be surprised if Sankey earns more looks in that role by at least mid-season. Some have questioned Sankey’s ability to be an every-down back, but I disagree with all that. I’m not the coach, though, so what matters is what coach Whisenhunt thinks, so hopefully Sankey can capture his attention in these next couple preseason contests.

NEWS: Bishop Sankey to be used in a RBBC in 2014?

According to tennessean.com, the Titans could deploy a running back by committee (RBBC) in 2014.

SMITTY: There is some risk to counting on Bishop Sankey in 2014, as some believe he is not an every-down back. I believe that he can be an every-down back, but we’ve seen coaches ruin a player’s fantasy upside time and time again (think Lamar Miller in Miami last season). Hopefully Tennessee gives him a full and fair shot to command starter-type carries as a Titan. The good news for those that believe in Sankey? His competition are players named Shonn Greene and Dexter McCluster, neither of which are capable of being full-time rushers in the NFL. Looking for Week 1 Power Rankings?
