|Bishop Sankey continues to impress |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/28/14) We didn't learn much about the Titans' running back situation in Week 5, because the Colts just pummeled them into abandoning the run early.
Titan's backs rushed the ball just 11 times in the game, with Bishop Sankey leading the way with six carries for 34 yards and a touchdown. This was the second week in a row Sankey touched the ball more often than fellow back Shonn Greene, who continues to be largely ineffective.
The Titans should be in more games moving forward, even if Charlie Whitehurst remains the quarterback. Their Week 5 opponent, the Browns, have been absolutely lit up by running backs, making Sankey a very intriguing option as a flex starter.

(9/28/14) Titans running back Shonn Greene drew the start at running back Sunday at Indianapolis and received the first touch on the team's opening drive, but the veteran running back didn't get much work in a 41-17 loss Week 4.
Greene managed just three carries for 10 yards Sunday. He was not targeted in the passing games.
Greene has managed five or fewer carries in two of his last three games. The Titans are back in action Week 5 vs. Cleveland.
|Bishop Sankey takes a step forward, at Shonn Greene's expense |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/22/14) Titans running back Shonn Greene might have found the end zone in Week 3 against the Bengals, but he saw less of the field than any of his backfield mates in the 33-7 loss.
Maybe it was just the flow of the game, but Greene's role was much-diminished Sunday. Greene saw sporadic playing time, including deep into the fourth quarter, but took a big backseat to both Dexter McCluster and Bishop Sankey. Greene played 46 percent of the team's snaps in Week 1, but has seen that number fall to 16 and 20 percent over the last two weeks.
And while McCluster was the big winner in Week 2, his role fell to 26 percent of the snaps in Week 3. This time around, it was Bishop Sankey's turn to shoulder the load, as he jumped up from 10.9 percent of the snaps through two games to 42 percent Sunday. He responded to the increased role well, with 61 yards on 10 carries, as well as one catch for 9 yards on his lone target.
Sankey was considered a big-time sleeper heading into the season, but we knew he would have to fight for time in a crowded backfield. Based on Week 3, he just might have earned it. Now is the time to snatch him up in the 34 percent of CBSSports.com leagues he is still available in.
|Shonn Greene reaches paydirt in Week 3 loss |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/21/14) Titans running back Shonn Greene rushed for 33 yards on 10 carries and scored a touchdown in his team's 33-7 loss to the Bengals in Week 3.
Greene plunged into the end zone from one yard out for a garbage-time touchdown in the fourth quarter, which was his first score of the season. He shared the ball evenly with rookie Bishop Sankey in the loss, with the rookie nearly doubling Greene's rushing yards. The touchdown was on Greene's only carry of the second half. He'll travel to Indianapolis next week as the Titans take on the Colts.
|Dexter McCluster, Shonn Greene splitting bulk of snaps through two weeks |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/18/14) The running back situation for the Titans remains a guessing game, as head coach Ken Whisenhunt continues to split the workload among four running backs.
Dexter McCluster dominated the backfield timeshare through two weeks, playing 52 offensive snaps to Shonn Greene's 40. However, Greene currently leads the team in rushing with 111 yards on 20 carries. McCluster has 59 yards through the ground on 13 carries, with two catches on three targets.
Bishop Sankey has only played 14 snaps this season, 10 of which came in Week 1. He has eight carries for 28 yards, which ranks third among his running mates. Although Leon Washington has played 22 snaps, he's gotten only four touches. Washington has two carries for 23 yards through two weeks.

Bishop Sankey continues to impress
|It is expected that Shonn Greene will pick up part of the rushing workload in Tennessee this season. How big of a role? Probably not a ton considering the Titans' move to draft Bishop Sankey with a second-round pick in May's draft. Sankey should lead the Titans run game with Greene filling in on short-yardage/goal-line duty, among other opportunities. The Titans also added Dexter McCluster, further putting a camp on Greene's contributors. It's clear he's not going to be an every-down back unless some of his teammates miss serious playing time. Expect Greene to get taken late in Fantasy drafts as a reserve.
