Titans beat writer Paul Kuharsky: While veteran Shonn Greene is at the head of the line for the Titans running back-by-committee approach, rookie Bishop Sankey is the team's most well-rounded back. Sankey is on a good growth curve, and I expect he will earn the most touches over the course of the season, with Greene and Dexter McCluster making their contributions as more situational players.

Fantasy Impact: 

We’re projecting Sankey to be the clear RB1 in Tennessee after the Titans took him as the first running back in the draft. He’s a versatile runner who doesn’t have much competition for touches. The last 13 rookies who were the top drafted RB in their class and joined a backfield with a lackluster incumbent averaged 18.2 touches for 83.1 yards and 0.55 TD, or 11.6 fantasy points per game. That’s about what Ryan Mathews averaged as the #12 RB in 2013. He carries some risk since the backfield is unsettled, but the Titans didn't draft him so he could stand on the sideline.
